The most recent Premier League fantasy news from RotoWire.
Fantasy AnalysisHoward has spent the last 10 years at Everton, and could head to the United States this summer. The Colorado Rapids are the latest team to be identified as a potential suitor for the veteran, and Everton may allow him to leave on a free transfer.
Fantasy AnalysisDepay joined Phil Jones and Adnan Januzaj in the match. The striker made a cameo appearance from the bench in United's draw with Chelsea last weekend, but made a missed pass that jump started Chelsea's attack to draw level.
Fantasy AnalysisGiven the injury issues that Newcastle continue to deal with, including many along the back line, Lascelles could grab a rare start, though the defensive matchup against Chelsea is far from ideal, even with their struggles this season.
Fantasy AnalysisNewcastle picked up a rare clean sheet during Saturday's game, and while it's certainly a plus that Coloccini is able to continue playing, a repeat shutout appears unlikely against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on Saturday.
Fantasy AnalysisNewcastle are dealing with a host of injuries throughout the team, particularly in defense, so while Janmaat's ailment certainly isn't good, it's a relief that he's not facing a significant time on the sideline.
Fantasy AnalysisJoey O'Brien is expected to start Tuesday's FA Cup match against Liverpool, though that's only because Byram is cup-tied. Byram is very much an attacking fullback, and he could be a solid alternative on the opposite side of Aaron Cresswell.
Fantasy AnalysisTomkins has been a regular starter at right back but the depth will surely be tested, as Arsenal-loanee Carl Jenkinson is out for the season after suffering a torn ACL. Sam Byram is a possibility for Saturday's Premier League match against Norwich City, though he is unable to play Tuesday against Liverpool in the FA Cup because he is cup-tied, which should allow Joey O'Brien to get a rare start.
Fantasy AnalysisBrannagan is way too far away from first-team football during Premier League matches, so his fantasy value is basically unaffected by the illness.
Fantasy AnalysisDue to two early injuries elsewhere, Sturridge was unable to play against the Black Cats, and while he is expected to participate in some part during Tuesday's tie, it's still undecided if he'll get the start. If he's able to make it through without suffering any kind of setback, he could be in line to start Sunday's Premier League match against Aston Villa, though Roberto Firmino has played well up front recently.
Fantasy AnalysisOrigi hasn't played since suffering his injury back on Boxing Day, and while his return to fitness is surely a boost, it's unclear if he'll get a shot at starting during Premier League play, as Roberto Firmino has done well in the striker role of late. Additionally, Christian Benteke and Daniel Sturridge are fit, which only complicates the selection decision for Klopp.
