Francis Coquelin continues to rack up interceptions and tackles but his fantasy value is held back by fouls committed and yellow cards, especially in big matches.
Francis Coquelin has been a revelation since he ascended to the starting line-up in mid-season. Coquelin is among the league leaders in tackles and interceptions on a per/match basis. His fantasy value would be higher, however, if he can start to take some of the fouls and cards out of his game. Against Chelsea he intercepted five passes, won two tackles and blocked a shot while participating in a clean sheet. Unfortunately for those who invested he gave much of that productivity back by committing three fouls and being cautioned. There is still room to grow given his relative inexperience in the top flight but it may well be that Arsenal need him to be combative in a way that is good for the team but not as good for fantasy productivity.
