Given made four saves and gave up four goals in Sunday's 4-1 loss at Palace.

For the second straight game, Given gave up a quartet of goals in a lopsided loss. He should've done better on the first Palace goal, but was unlucky on the third. Though he'll continue to get starts with Jack Butland recovering from ankle surgery, Given should not be on the fantasy radar, as Stoke look to be one of the worst sides in the EPL.

September 10, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Given conceded four goals and made four saves in Saturday's 4-0 rout at the hands of Spurs.

The opposition ran rampant against Given on Saturday, landing eight shots on goal and netting four, while coming close on several other occasions. Given appears to be the first choice as Jack Butland begins what is expected to be a long road back from ankle surgery, and he will look to get back on track in what should be a more forgiving matchup next Sunday versus Crystal Palace.

August 27, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Given made nine saves and was charged with an own goal in Saturday's 1-0 loss to Everton.

To say Given was a hard luck loser in this match would be putting it mildly. After getting a hand to Leighton Baines's penalty to knock it off the post, the ball came back off Given's head to roll into the net. It's unfortunate for Given, who was named Man of the Match for his nine-save effort. With Jack Butland set to come back after the break, Given will go back to backup duty in the Stoke goal. The 40-year-old has had a nice run of games to start the season.

August 20, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Given made two saves and conceded four times in Saturday's 4-1 defeat to Manchester City.

After a fairly successful first appearance of the season, conceding just once and drawing Middlesbrough, the wheels came off quickly and entirely for the Potters, conceding twice in the first half to Sergio Aguero and then, after clawing back into the match, conceding twice more in the closing minutes to Nolito to make the scoreline that much more lopsided. The caretaker of the gloves until Jack Butland's return, the Stoke training staff will work double-time to get the 23-year-old fit for next weekend's clash at Everton.

August 13, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Given made one save and conceded once while also being cautioned in Saturday's 1-1 draw with Middlesbrough.

Starting in place of the injured Jack Butland, the 40-year-old acquitted himself nicely in his fourth start in the Potters' last six league matches dating back to last season. While not the cleanest contact, he could have done little to stop Alvaro Negredo's early goal and made a fine save to stop Albert Adomah early on. While he was a bit fortunate to see Gaston Ramirez's effort clank off the woodwork, the Potters will take a point heading into next weekend's visit from (one of) his former clubs, Manchester City.

July 5, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Given didn't make an appearance for Republic of Ireland during Euro 2016, in what could be his last major international ride with the Green Army and remained with 134 caps. Ireland lost 2-1 out to France and were knocked out of the tournament at the round of 16.

Given was third up in Stoke's depth chart at goal last season. The 40-year-old veteran barely made three Premier League starts and six total across all competitions for a very low fantasy upside off the bench.

May 15, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Given had five saves and received a yellow card in Sunday's 2-1 win over West Ham.

Given received his third start of the season in Stoke's final match. Given will finish league play with a total of seven saves and zero clean sheets. Stoke finished with one win and two loses in Given's three starts.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Given (groin) is starting on Sunday against West Ham.

Given returns from his injury to face one of the Premier League's most potent attacks, though they will be without Dimitri Payet.
