The most recent Premier League fantasy news from RotoWire.
Fantasy AnalysisMignolet opened the season with three consecutive clean sheets and recorded 20 overall, but he also yielded multiple goals 15 times, including the UEFA Europa League final that the Reds dropped 3-1 to Sevilla. In Mignolet's defense, the back line in front of him was a virtual revolving door due to injuries and inconsistent form, so he will look to rebound for what should be a more competitive side in 2016/17.
Fantasy AnalysisThe winger totaled just seven goals and seven assists in two Premier League seasons heading into the year, but he exploded out of the gate for 14 goals and seven helpers in the fist half of the seasons alone, collecting eight Man of the Match awards along the way. Mahrez's dynamic play made him the only player in the top flight with double-digit goals and assists, and the Foxes' dream run to the league title helped him garner the PFA Player of the Year award in addition to Leicester Supporters' Player of the Year honors. Mahrez is one of the hottest commodities in European football at the moment, but he seems resigned to following Jamie Vardy's suit and staying put for the 2016/17 season.
Fantasy AnalysisTadic again enjoyed a bit of an inconsistent season that saw him in and out of the first XI, but a late surge in which he totaled two goals and six assists in the season's final five matches gave us a glimpse of what he is capable of. Tadic actually finished tied with Dimitri Payet for third in the Premier League in assists, and he will look to finally put it all together over the course of a full campaign in 2016/17.
Fantasy AnalysisFirmino got off to a big of a slow start and did not score his first goal until late November, but he made significant strides as the season went on and finished as the Reds' most productive offensive player. Firmino clearly became more comfortable at his new club, particularly while playing alongside compatriot Philippe Coutinho, and he should be in for another productive season in 2016/17 after a full year of adjustment time.
Fantasy AnalysisWilliams has been a rock for the Wales back line, and his return will certainly be a boost against the high-powered Belgium attack. That being said, he gets most of his fantasy value through peripheral defensive stats, making him a fairly low-upside players.
Fantasy AnalysisMane has shown tremendous fantasy upside in spurts, though consistency throughout a season has been lacking. That being said, he has great speed and should fit into manager Jurgen Klopp's plans perfectly, making him a very attractive fantasy option for the 2016/17 season.
Fantasy AnalysisThe midfielder's final game for Manchester United last season came in March due to a knee injury. He has been working on his fitness since then, and has made three substitute appearances in the Euro tournament so far. He indicates now that he is healthy enough to play even more this summer.
Fantasy AnalysisRedmond is a young and talented prospect and he may be the perfect replacement for the potential renegade - Sadio Mane, who seems to be Liverpool-bound. The former, an England under-21 star, finished last season with six goals, three assists and 1.5 shots per game in 35 Premier League appearances (24 starts) for a total of 13 goals in 122 appearances during his three-year spell with the Canaries.
Fantasy AnalysisDavis had a great campaign for Southampton last season to help them earn an Europa League spot. The 31-year-old creative midfielder lined up all over the midfield checking in some decent fantasy production. He finished his season with five goals and three assists in 34 Premier League appearances (31 starts).
Fantasy AnalysisCathcart had a solid campaign for a stingy, for the most part of the year, Watford defense last season. The 27-year-old center back, though, wasn't the most productive player in the league finishing the season with one goal, one own goal, 10 clean sheets and 45 tackles in 35 Premier League appearances (34 starts).
