RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Valencia lit up the stats sheet with a clean sheet, one shot off target, four crosses, two dribbles and three tackles in Saturday's 1-0 win over Norwich.

Valencia took the starting right back position over in the middle of April and never looked back. That's his fourth consecutive start in Premier League action now and he's been in fantastic form having been very unfortunate to only have two assists during that period. The full back will have an opportunity to finish the season even stronger with a double-header next week. The Red Devils are visiting Upton Park on Tuesday for a clash with the Hammers and finishing the season at home against the Cherries in the season finale.

Valencia tallied an assist in Sunday's 1-1 draw with Leicester City.

United broke quickly, with Valencia finding Anthony Martial in the eighth minute to give them the early lead. While he couldn't maintain his strong form throughout the match, for the opening hour, he was the class of United's back four. After sitting out of the team's 3-0 defeat to Spurs, Valencia has played the full 90 of the past three matches, collecting two assists while the team's gotten seven of nine available points.

Valencia tallied a clean sheet, four crosses, two dribbles and five tackles in Wednesday's 2-0 win over Crystal Palace.

Valencia looks fully healthy and at his best. That's his second consecutive start and he played exceptionally well, yet again. As an ex-winger he's very creative and active offensively and when plays regularly and at top form, Valencia has a high fantasy ceiling. He's in a tight battle with Marcos Rojo, Matteo Darmian and Ashley Young for the full back positions, though, and even if he gets another start the Red Devils' next encounter doesn't come until May 1 when they host the Foxes.

Valencia tallied an assist on three crosses and a clean sheet in Saturday's 1-0 victory over Aston Villa.

Slowly but surely Valencia is regaining his full match fitness after a lengthy absence. That was his first start since Oct 25 and he lasted the whole game managing to providing a good spark on the right flank that turned into an assist for the winner. That's his first Premier League assist in his third start. He'll probably have hard time keeping his starting role, though, with Marcos Rojo, Ashley Young, Timothy Fosu-Mensah and Matteo Darmian all healthy and competing for the two full-back positions.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Valencia (foot) is not in the 18-man squad to face West Ham on Sunday's FA Cup tie.

With a lengthy absence already, even when he returns to the field, Valencia will need an extended time to gain full fitness before he could even be considered for a start.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Valencia (foot) is not in the 18-man squad to face West Brom on Sunday.

Valencia has been sidelined for quite some time, and even with a full return to fitness soon, it's unclear if he'll get a shot at a starting role, with Matteo Darmian and Marcos Rojo both healthy.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Valencia (foot) could return for Sunday's match against West Brom, manager Louis van Gaal said Tuesday.

Valencia has been out since the end of October due to his injury, so while a return to fitness is certainly a plus, it'll likely be tough to get much playing time in the short term.
