Lucas is expected to be sidelined for at least one month after suffering a hamstring injury during last week's friendly against Huddersfield Town, the Liverpool Echo reports.

Lucas has been rumoured to be on the move, as his playing time at Liverpool this season was likely to be limited, but the injury could very well scupper any potential deal.

July 21, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Lucas suffered a hamstring injury during Wednesday's friendly with Huddersfield Town.

The severity of the injury is still unclear, though Lucas was able to travel with the squad to the United States for the International Champions Cup. Lucas' playing time is likely to be fairly limited this season, which obviously hinders his fantasy upside.

April 21, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Leiva tallied an assist and two shots (one on target) in Wednesday's 4-0 romp over Everton.

Leiva has returned to form and to the starting XI after he didn't register a single minute in March. He stole a ball in midfield and after a quick run in space made a brilliant pass to Daniel Sturridge for the third goal of the game and his first assist of the season. While Leiva could be a key cog of the midfield, however he isn't much of a fantasy contributor even at his best.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Lucas (quad) is starting Sunday against Bournemouth.

Lucas will line up as a centerback alongside Kolo Toure, as manager Jurgen Klopp institutes some fairly significant squad rotation after Thursday's Europa League win over Borussia Dortmund.

March 4, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Lucas is expected to be out for five-to-six weeks after suffering a quad injury during the Capital One Cup final last weekend.

Lucas' fantasy upside is fairly limited in most formats given his role as a defensive midfielder, and occasional centerback, so there aren't likely many fantasy managers making changes.

February 17, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Lucas will be available for Thursday's Europa League match against Augsburg after recovering from a minor hamstring injury, manager Jurgen Klopp said Thursday.

Lucas plays primarily as a holding midfielder, so while he can accumulate his fair share of interceptions and tackles, his fantasy upside is quite limited in most formats.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Leiva served his suspension and will be available for selection in the Sunday’s visit to St James Park.

The Brazilian has been a commanding figure for the Reds. His role as a holding midfielder, though, doesn’t provide him with a lot of fantasy production and even against porous Newcastle he wouldn’t be the best of options for your roster.

November 24, 2015

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

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.
