December 21, 2014

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Agbonlahor was assessed a straight red card for a questionable challenge on Manchester United's Ashley Young during Saturday's 1-1 draw.

Agbonlahor will now miss the next three matches and will be eligible to return Jan. 10 against Leicester City.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Agbonlahor put away his third goal of the Premier League season against Southampton on Monday.

Agbonlahor is the main goal-scoring threat with Christian Benteke (suspension) out of the lineup, as Monday proves. Benteke won't return until Dec. 2, so Agbonlahor will likely get an abundance of opportunities against Burnley on Saturday.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Agbonlahor took four shots Saturday but he ultimately never connected as Aston Villa drew to a 0-0 tie with West Ham.

Agbonlahor will likely see more opportunities to shoot with the ongoing suspension of Christian Benteke. Considering that Benteke isn't eligible to return until Dec. 2, Agbonlahor will have two more opportunities against Southampton and Burnley with increased looks.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Agbonlahor was forced to miss Saturday's match against Manchester City with an illness that he came down with right before kickoff, the Express and Star reports.

Agbonlahor will have plenty of time to get over his illness since the international break will allow him to rest until Oct. 18 when Villa faces Everton in Premier League play. The 27-year-old has scored two goals on the season and will be a threat to Everton if he's ultimately deemed fit ahead of the match.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Agbonlahor signed a new four-year contract with Aston Villa after working on an extension the past few weeks, reports Sky Sports.

Agbonlahor joined Villa in 1994, and said that he has only ever wanted to play for Villa. He made his first-team debut for the side in 2006.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Agbonlahor played all 90 minutes for Aston Villa on Saturday against Stoke City.

Agbonlahor looks to have won the starting spot up front and will be a potent option to score for the Villans with Libor Kozak (leg) and Christian Benteke (Achilles) out for the near future.

August 8, 2014

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Agbonlahor has successfully competed in five Villa friendlies this preseason.

Agbonlahor has the inside track to starting up front for Villa this season since Libor Kozak (leg) and Christian Benteke (Achilles) won't be available until mid-October. However, he hasn't netted any goals in five preseason performances, so there may be better options elsewhere.
