Enner Valencia stepped up to our challenge for producing more fantasy points in games where he doesn't score.
Valencia picked up an assist on the way to 12 Yahoo! fantasy points this week in West Ham's win over Manchester City. The Ecuadorian striker also had a shot on target, four fouls won, and a corner won. This is the type of production that makes good fantasy players into great fantasy players and Valencia's value is certainly looking up right now. He was very active today and his relationship with Diafra Sakho has been growing. Don't be afraid to use him at his price tag of £ 7.73M. Oct 25 - 3:16 PM

Enner Valencia scored his second Premier League goal over the weekend, showing fans why West Ham brought him in over the summer.

The popular signing has had a relatively quiet season so far but showed what the hype is all about this weekend with a goal. We expect Valencia to score more than once every four games(current rate), but the problem we have is that the striker doesn't contribute many points outside of goals. Good fantasy players return points even without scoring, and Valencia needs to step it up in that regard to become a better asset. With that in mind, at £ 6.99M, he could be a great differential play against lesser teams.

Enner Valencia scored his first Premier League goal with a stunning strike from deep range and the Hammers erased two deficits to grab a point on the road in a 2-2 draw with Hull City.

After impressing on a global stage in this summer's World Cup, Valencia showed today just how dangerous and special he is. Down 1-0 in the 50th minute, he took a nonchalant pass from Stewart Downing, dribbled methodically to his right, then fired a 25 yard cannon into the top corner which could not have been struck any harder. An own goal by Hull's Curtis Davies would give the Hammers it's second equalizer as the two sides played to an exciting draw. It's pretty clear the path to scoring for West Ham right now is the link between Downing and Valencia. Both are viable fantasy options in plus matchups right now.

Enner Valencia should provide West Ham a big boost in attack as he returns to full fitness.

Valencia had struggled to get fully fit after the World Cup this summer but is now back at full fitness and should help West Ham in attack. The Hammers have once again been horrific going forward but Valencia has the finishing touch needed to get them some goals. If Mauro Zarate continues playing well and Valencia gets in form, West Ham may finally have a decent attack. We wouldn't bank on either of them in fantasy until goals happen.

Still recovering from his World Cup exertions, Enner Valencia is likely to miss the Hammers' first two Premier League matches of the season.

With Andy Carroll already a long term absentee, the news that big summer signing Enner Valencia will also miss the club's first two matches because he is short on fitness is a big blow. West Ham have had a controversial summer with rumors of Sam Alardyce's head being on the chopping block and front office disagreements over transfer policy. Valencia was one sliver of good news over the summer and even that now comes with fitness concerns. Not a good start for the Hammers and Big Sam.

New West Ham striker Enner Valencia is targeting a top six finish for the Hammers this season.

Valencia wants to play in European competitions and is targeting that as a potential finish for the Hammers this season. The new striker will have to be phenomenal for his team to even get close to the top six as they've struggled in attack for the past few seasons. With Andy Carroll injured again, Valencia will lead the line for West Ham with the support of Mauro Zarate from behind. Both Valencia and Zarate could be decent fantasy options if West Ham can figure out their offensive woes but that is a risky bet at the moment. Valencia may miss the first match of the season due to fitness concerns.

West Ham have confirmed the signing of Ecuador striker Enner Valencia.

The 25-year-old joins the club on a deal worth in the region of £15million. He can play a variety of attacking positions and will probably play as a supporting striker to Andy Carroll. He scored all three of Ecuador's goals in the World Cup this summer and will try to carry his momentum into the Premier League season. West Ham have spent a lot of money this summer and could be a very dangerous attacking team next season. Valencia will probably be a very reasonably priced option in fantasy and will be a great option for managers.
