The most recent Premier League fantasy news from RotoWire.

Abel Hernandez    F    Hull City
Hernandez took two shots on target and won two headers in Saturday’s loss against Manchester United.

Fantasy Analysis

Hernandez has played well in Hull’s first two matches, having one goal and assist. Hernandez was not able to get any good looks against a Manchester United squad that controlled the possession. Hernandez will likely get opportunities on net in Hull’s next match as The Tigers face Burnley after the international break on September 10th.
Curtis Davies    D    Hull City
Davies had 18 clearances, 5 interceptions and 1 tackle in Saturday’s loss against Manchester United.

Fantasy Analysis

Hull has been content giving up possession in its first three matches, leaving Davies the opportunity to rack-up the defensive statistics. Davies has 38 clearances and 21 interceptions in Hull’s those matches. Davies’ next match is September 10th against Burnley.
Robert Snodgrass    M    Hull City
Snodgrass picked up a leg injury in Saturday’s loss against Manchester United.

Fantasy Analysis

Snodgrass looked to injure his thigh before halftime but tried to give it a go at the start of the second half, unfortunately for Hull he could not continue, leaving the match in the 47th minute. Snodgrass was replaced by Shaun Maloney and if Snodgrass is unfit Maloney could see a rise in playing time. Hull’s next match is September 10th against Burnley.
Eldin Jakupovic    G    Hull City
Jakupovic had seven saves while conceding one goal in Saturday’s loss against Manchester United.

Fantasy Analysis

Jakupovic had a great match keeping his squad level against a Manchester United squad that should compete for the league championship. The keeper was unable to stop the last attempt on goal in stoppage time when Manchester United’s Wayne Rooney found Marcus Rashford cutting to the net. Jakupovic’s next match is September 10th against Burnley.
Marouane Fellaini    M    Manchester United
Fellaini picked up a back injury in Saturday’s victory over Hull City.

Fantasy Analysis

Manager Jose Mourinho confirmed after the match that Fellaini’s injury “is not good." Fellaini played a full 90 minutes against Hull. Fellaini should be considered doubtful for Belgium over the international break. If Fellaini is not fit, Michael Carrick, Ander Herrera or Morgan Schneiderlin could fill his role for United. United’s next match is September 10th against Manchester City.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic    F    Manchester United
Ibrahimovic had seven shots off target, one key pass and three headers won in Saturday’s victory against Hull City.

Fantasy Analysis

Ibrahimovic had been dominant in the first two matches, scoring three goals. Ibrahimovic had only one good opportunity as he missed his back heel wide of the net. Ibrahimovic will likely continue to be dominate in the attack but his goal-a-game pace was unrealistic in the Premier League. Ibrahimovic’s next match is September 10th against Manchester City.
Marcus Rashford    F    Manchester United
Rashford had one goal on three shots, including two on net and one key pass while picking up a yellow card in Saturday’s 1-0 win against Hull City.

Paul Pogba    M    Manchester United
Pogba took six shots, including one on target, sent in two crosses and had one key pass in Saturday’s 1-0 win against Hull City.
