Villa is suspended for Saturday's match against the Rapids because of yellow card accumulation.

Villa picked up a dumb yellow card toward the end of the New York derby last weekend, forcing him into the one-match ban. With Patrick Mullins now with D.C. United, NYC FC could use Tony Taylor up front.

David Villa: Past News Updates   ( ▲ View most recent update )

July 18, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Villa scored a goal on two shots (one on target) during New York's 2-1 win over Montreal on Sunday.

Villa increased his season tally to 13 goals, two more than Montreal's Ignacio Piatti for the league lead. The Spaniard continues to evidence on a weekly basis he's one of the best attackers in the league.

July 6, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Villa scored in the 66th minute of Sunday's 2-0 win over the New York Red Bulls. He finished with eight shots, four shots on goal and suffered three fouls.

Villa leads the league with 12 goals on the season and has scored in four of his last five appearances. Spain's all-time leading goal scorer continues to be one of the most dangerous strikers in MLS.

June 19, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Villa attempted seven shots and scored the second goal in a Man of the Match performance during Saturday's 3-2 win over Philadelphia.

Villa showed no signs of rust after a two-week layoff, as he threatened the Union back line early and often and deftly tucked home a back-heel from Jack Harrison with his left foot in the 21st minute. Villa has been prolific this season and is in good form at the moment, with three goals and an assist in his last three matches. He will look to extend his current streak next week versus Seattle.

June 3, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Villa took 10 shots, with five on target, scored a goal and assisted on another during NYC FC's 3-2 home loss to Real Salt Lake on Thursday.

Villa has scored six goals in his last six starts, and he continues to pepper in shots, taking 19 in his last two games. The NYC FC defense continues to struggle, which means Villa will continue to be relied upon to get them back into games, all but assuring high shot toals.

May 31, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Villa scored a single goal on a game-high eight shots (two on goal) Sunday as NYCFC played Orlando City to a 2-2 draw at home.

A beautiful lob pass from Andrea Pirlo at the 66th minute of Sunday's match fell at the feet of a streaking Villa, who then lifted a right footed shot over the head of Orlando City goalkeeper Joe Saunders to put NYCFC up 2-0 over the Lions. Unfortunately, a penalty kick three minutes later that would have likely resulted in a second-consecutive goal for the foward went awry as Villa slipped on his approach to the ball and sent it sailing high into the crowd. Despite that mishap, Villa now finds himself pacing MLS for both total goals (9) and shots (77) on the year.

May 16, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Villa scored the opening goal on a team-high six shot attempts during Sunday's 2-1 win over Portland.

Villa's goal was a bit controversial, as RJ Allen appeared to handle the ball before sending an inch-perfect through ball to him, but he coolly slotted it home to tie for the league lead in scoring. He will head into Wednesday's match versus Toronto having scored six goals in his last six matches.

March 15, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Villa scored both goals for NYCFC in Sunday’s 2-2 draw with Toronto.

Villa scored his first goal of the season with a penalty kick, and then just four minutes later he scored his second. Villa bagged 18 goals last season and surely has the upside to reach that level again.
