Rooney took one shot and earned a yellow card in Saturday's 2-1 loss versus Sunderland.

Rooney was not able to get anything going against a Sunderland squad that had allowed 49 league goals entering Saturday's match. Rooney has now only scored once in his last four league matches. Rooney's next league match is against Arsenal on the 28th. Manchester United will play two Europa League matches against Midtjylla and an FA cup match against Shrewsbury before the pivotal match versus Arsenal. Arsenal has conceded 15 away goals in league play, most among the top four squads.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Rooney scored and had an assist as Manchester United ran out convincing winners in their 3-0 defeat of Stoke City at Old Trafford on Tuesday.

What a difference a few games makes in the world of Wayne Rooney. Written of by many critics, he has come back to score five in his last five games, creating twelve chances and adding two assists during that period. Fixture proof, Rooney on form is a must on anyone's fantasy roster.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Rooney scored two goals, one from open play and a penalty kick, on three shots (two on target) while also tallying an assist in Tuesday's 3-3 draw with Newcastle United.

Rooney calmly stepped up to the spot and converted the spot kick in the ninth minute to give United the early advantage. From there, his confidence seemed sky high. While he missed a goal early on, pushing it just wide of the far post, his second goal was a wonder strike that will make even his lengthy highlight reel. On the assist, a careful bit of hold-up play saw him find a streaking Jesse Lingard. He now has three goals and an assist in his last two matches to bring his total to 11 goals and two assists across all competitions.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Rooney took eight shots, with three on target, and scored a goal during Saturday's win over Swansea. He is now the second-highest goal scorer in Premier League history, trailing only Alan Shearer.

Rooney's goal was his first in Premier League play since Oct. 17 against Everton, but he put in a great performance that included three crosses, three key passes and one foul drawn. It was a solid turn-back-the-clock game, and while United have a relatively easy fixture next time in their Premier League schedule (at Newcastle), Rooney has been so inconsistent this season that he makes for an unreliable fantasy option.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Rooney picked up an assist off one key pass, took four shots (none on target) and added four crosses in a stunning 2-1 home loss to Norwich on Saturday.

It was actually Ashley Young’s cross that found Anthony Martial for United’s goal but along the way Rooney managed to take a touch on the ball trying to head the ball, and when all was said and done, the striker was credited with the assist. The England international was very active in his return after missing three games, though he was inefficient. The Red Devils desperately need somebody to start scoring and Rooney will try to be that guy next Saturday when United face Stoke City.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Rooney (ankle) is starting Saturday against Norwich City.

Rooney was expected back later this month, but he apparently recovered faster than expected and he'll slot right back into the starting lineup to help a United side desperate for goals.

December 18, 2015

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Rooney will undergo a late fitness test ahead of Saturday's match versus Norwich as he continues to recover from an ankle injury.

The captain was initially expected to return later this month after injuring his ankle in late November, but he could return slightly ahead of schedule to face the Canaries. The Manchester United attack has struggled to the tune of just two goals in the last three league matches, and Rooney's impending return should provide the boost necessary to break out of that slump.

December 11, 2015

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Rooney (ankle) has been ruled out for Saturday's match against Bournemouth.

Rooney is expected to return at some point during the condensed holiday schedule, but his continued absence could lead to Memphis Depay getting more playing time alongside or behind Anthony Martial.
