Leiva is suspended for one game for yellow card accumulation.

The Brazilian has been exceptional for manager Jurgen Klopp, however, his role doesn't translate very well in fantasy land. Whoever takes his place, though, with the position not very fantasy-friendly you would be better off looking away.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Leiva curled in one cross and made 75 passes out of 93 total touches in Liverpool home draw with Southampton on Sunday.

Leiva has been terrific under manager Jurgen Klopp. He was by far the best Reds man versus the Saints holding tight the midfield reins. His game doesn’t usually translate well into fantasy production but keep an eye on him in deeper formats or if you need a sleeper as he probably cemented his starting gig in Premier League.

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.

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 (thigh) has returned to full training and is expected to play Saturday against QPR, the Liverpool Echo reports.

Lucas missed the past three matches for Liverpool but seems to be in line for a return against QPR. However, he'll be monitored ahead of kickoff just in case his thigh injury resurfaces.

Lucas (knock) will not play in Saturday's match against West Brom according to manager Brendan Rodgers.

Lucas suffered a knock during training and ultimately was unable to compete in Sunday's FA Cup loss to Aston Villa as a result. He'll be monitored moving forward with his next chance to get back onto the pitch coming against Hull City on Tuesday.
