Jose Fonte has been an unsung hero for years at Southampton through multiple divisions but he is finally getting some praise from the Premier League and fantasy media.
The arrival of Dejan Lovern coincided with Southampton's rise to defensive prominence under Mauricio Pochettino last season. As a result, many assumed that it was Lovern who was the difference. As it turned out, it was the center back who stayed behind, Jose Fonte, who was the real difference-maker. While Lovern has struggled to even get starting time, Fonte has taken plaudits in the media and found himself the fourth highest scoring fantasy defender in the league this season. It may not be pretty or elegant but it is effective. May 7 - 11:20 AM
