The most recent Premier League fantasy news from RotoWire.
Fantasy AnalysisBrady was widely believed to be heading back to the Premier League after Hull were relegated last season, and he lands with the Canaries with plenty of opportunities for playing time. Brady is very solid on set pieces, and if he takes over the role at Norwich, he could be an interesting fantasy play in many formats.
Fantasy AnalysisBalotelli hasn't cemented his place with Liverpool after joining last season, while the team has brought in Christian Benteke, Roberto Firmino, and Danny Ings this summer. Liverpool is reportedly asking £7 million for the striker.
Fantasy AnalysisAtsu will reportedly undergo scans to determine the severity of the ailment, but he appeared to be in quite a bit of pain. With less than two weeks before Bournemouth plays their first Premier League match, Atsu is in danger of missing their opener Aug. 8 against Aston Villa.
Fantasy AnalysisAgbonlahor was a solid second fiddle to Christian Benteke last season, as Villa staved off relegation, but with the Belgian striker sold to Liverpool this summer, Agbonlahor will surely have to take on a bigger part of the scoring load. While he is likely to take more shots, a vast increase in fantasy production is unlikely.
Fantasy AnalysisThe Saints have had some significant changeover in their back line this summer, with Toby Alderweireld heading to Tottenham and Nathaniel Clyne to Liverpool, giving Caulker plenty of opportunity for playing time right away. If Southampton can be as good defensively as they were last season, he could be a solid fantasy option in leagues that prioritize clean sheets.
Fantasy AnalysisCahill was hit by the goalkeeper as he connected on a headed goal, and he immediately went down to the ground clutching his face. He was removed from the game after being examined on the field, and if he requires surgery to correct the issue, he'll likely have to play with a mask and could certainly miss the Community Shield on Sunday against Arsenal.
Fantasy AnalysisManager Jose Mourinho said he didn't think the issue was serious, but they will have to wait on a scan before the severity of the ailment is determined. If Costa is unable to start against Arsenal, Falcao and Loic Remy are the top two choices to replace him.
Fantasy AnalysisLukaku is by far Everton's top offensive option this season, and his presence at the top of their attack keeps him as a very attractive fantasy option. With the issue not believed to be serious, Lukaku is expected to start the Premier League opener Aug. 8 against Watford at Goodison Park.
Fantasy AnalysisEven when he's fully fit, Oviedo is firmly behind Leighton Baines on the depth chart, which means his playing time will be minimal if the latter is healthy.
Fantasy AnalysisPienaar played only 11 times last season because of numerous issues, though even when he's fully fit, he's not a regular starter, which makes him a very unreliable fantasy option.
