The most recent Premier League fantasy news from RotoWire.
Fantasy AnalysisThe defender was locked out of the team last season, but has made a strong comeback and has been part of the team's strong defensive start. He spent two years on the fringes of the first team, but is now a regular in the back line.
Fantasy AnalysisGutierrez hasn't played since April, and spent part of last season on loan at Norwich. He has been undergoing chemotherapy, and is continuing to battle the disease.
Fantasy AnalysisAston Villa's early success is definitely a surprise, but Guzan should be highly valued regardless. Arsenal, Chelsea, and Manchester City are next on the docket for the American goalkeeper which should pose some problems for his value, but then again, Villa wasn't supposed to shut out Liverpool.
Fantasy AnalysisVlaar has been a staple in Villa's defense this season, but they didn't need his efforts Saturday as the Villans pulled off a surprising 1-0 victory over Liverpool. Looking ahead, Vlaar will likely have another late fitness test ahead of Saturday's match against Arsenal.
Fantasy AnalysisWith Amat out for the next six weeks, Fernandez will receive a boost in value despite only making one Premier League appearance this season. However, he made the start during Swansea's Capital One Cup qualifying match against Rotherham and was able to record a clean sheet while serving in Amat's place.
Fantasy AnalysisAmat has been a crucial part of Swansea's successful back line this season and he'll be sorely missed over the next six weeks. Federico Fernandez stands the most to gain from this injury and has the best chance to assume Amat's role in the starting XI.
Fantasy AnalysisMario Balotelli put the Reds up 1-0 after 82 minutes, but Dani Abalo netted the equalizer one minute into stoppage time to silence Anfield. However, Javier Manquillo drew a foul in the penalty area to set up Gerrard's game-saving score, something he's done countless times in his career.
Fantasy AnalysisWith Daniel Sturridge still sidelined with a thigh injury, Balotelli continues to lead the line for the Reds. Despite just joining the squad, he seems to have good chemistry with those around to set him up, and he'll take that into Saturday's Premier League match against West Ham.
Fantasy AnalysisWilshere scored during Saturday's 2-2 draw with Manchester City, though he is not generally a big contributor in most fantasy formats. The injury bug is starting to bite Arsenal a bit, which could lead to a very shuffled lineup Saturday against Aston Villa.
