Lucas recorded a clean sheet in his first appearance of the season in Monday's goalless draw against Arsenal.

After finding himself outside of the team's dressed 18 players in Liverpool's first two fixtures, Lucas was awarded a start as a holding midfielder in the absence of Jordan Henderson. Lucas acquitted himself mostly well, not making any major gaffes before ceding his spot to Jordan Rossiter late in the second half. With this kind of performance, it will be interesting to see if he remains on Merseyside or if Brendan Rogers will continue shopping him around.

Liverpool have made it public that they are willing to listen to offers for Lucas after a breakdown in the midfielder's relationship with manager Brendan Rogers, reports the Daily Mail.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Lucas appeared in 20 Premier League matches for Liverpool during the 2014-15 season.

Lucas saw significant time on the pitch last season but he failed to amount much production, taking just 11 unsuccessful shots throughout the year. A series of injuries did in fact stifle his fluidity to perform, although the 28-year-old is not expected to play a major role on the squad during their 2015-16 campaign.

Lucas (thigh) is available off the bench Saturday against QPR.

Lucas has missed the last three games due to the ailment, and while he's fit enough to be available, a big fantasy impact is unlikely off the bench.

Lucas (groin) will have a late-fitness test ahead of Sunday's match against Manchester United, the Daily Star reports.

Lucas has been off the pitch since suffering a groin injury in the Feb. 7 match against Everton. However, he's apparently progressed and has a real shot to take the pitch Sunday, although he may ultimately see limited playing time to shake off the rust.
