Wayne Rooney: Past News Updates   ( ▲ View most recent update )

October 11, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Rooney has a goal and two assists while averaging 1.7 shots and 6.1 crosses in seven league appearances (five starts) this season.

All of Rooney's production came in the first three matches of the season, and he has since seen his involvement decrease, coming off the bench in each of the last three. Rooney has opperated exclusively in a midfield role this season and faces competition for minutes with several of the Red Devils' younger players, making him far from a sure bet to start Monday versus Liverpool.

August 27, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Rooney took three shots, including two on target, had one assist and five key passes and picked up a yellow card in Saturday’s win against Hull City.

Rooney has one goal and two assists in three matches to start the season. Rooney made a great move on the end-line early in stoppage time and slotted the ball to Marcus Rashford who scored the matches only goal. Rooney’s next match is September 10th against Manchester City.

August 19, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Rooney attempted a pair of shots, supplied three crosses and generated an assist in Friday's 2-0 triumph over Southampton.

Rooney started in a playmaking role behind Zlatan Ibrahimovic, and he supplied a cross that the latter rose to nod home in the 36th minute to open the scoring. Rooney struggled to find his best place in the team last season, but with a clearly-defined role that has surrounded him with top-notch attacking talent, he could be in for a productive season. He has factored into a goal in all three competitive matches this season and will look to make it four straight next week versus Hull City.

August 14, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Rooney scored a goal on four shots (three on target) in Sunday's 3-1 victory over Bournemouth.

The 30-year-old United skipper looked lively and incisive throughout the opening victory. Parked in the No. 10 role behind newcomer Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Rooney had a good chance at a brace, but was denied by a nice save from Artur Boruc; however, he did score on a mishit from Anthony Martial that landed at Rooney's feet for his 248th goal in a United kit. He was removed on 89 minutes for Memphis as the couple of extra minutes of rest can't hurt before a quick turnaround as United faces Southampton at Old Trafford on Friday night.

June 2, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Rooney was named in England final 23-man squad for Euro 2016.

The grizzled-vet will probably be, one way or another, heavily involved into play during the Euro games. While he's listed as one of five forwards he's hoping he can have more of a midfield role for the Three Lions from where he would have a more limited fantasy upside. The once-ruthless-striker finished his season with the Red Devils with 12 goals and six assists in 39 appearances across all competitions.

June 1, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Rooney will start Thursday's Euro 2016 warm-up game against Portugal.

It is unclear what position he will start in, as he is usually used as a striker, but is also deployed as a midfielder in some instances. However, the veteran was reported to earlier be hoping for a midfielder role on the national team in the summer of 2016.

May 23, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Rooney said Manchester United underperformed this past season despite winning the FA Cup on Saturday, reports Sky Sports.

The striker said the cup win does not erase the issues the team had throughout the season, and that qualifying for the Champions League is a must for the club. He said the entire team has been under pressure this past season, and that the players need to perform at the standards expected of the club.
