Rickie Lambert led Southampton to an impressive 4-0 over struggling Newcastle.
Lambert scored and assisted on the way to the win, making fantasy owners happy. Lambert is in great form at the moment, averaging over 15 points per game in his last three. All players are better when facing poor opposition at home, but Lambert has been one of the most consistent strikers in that situation. If Southampton are playing poor opposition at home, he is a must own player. Adam Lallana, Jay Rodriguez, and the defense also put in very impressive displays and are good options in the coming weeks. Mar 29 - 12:53 PM

Rickie Lambert lead Southampton to a crazy 4-2 win over Norwich and registered a goal and an assist in the process.

Saints were up 1-0 when Lambert came in early in the second half to replace Adam Lallana. He scored with his first touch and assisted soon after to make it 3-0. Norwich fired back late to make it 3-2 but substitute Sam Gallagher scored his first Premier League goal to finish the game for the Saints. The disappointments for fantasy managers were plenty. Boruc ended up with 0 points, the defense lost the clean sheet late, and fan favorite Adam Lallana ended up with 1 point. Expect better from the Saints going forward.

Southampton scored the opener and later went ahead 2-1, but they could not secure the three points as Stoke City gave them a battle in a 2-2 draw.

Ricky Lambert opened the scoring with his 8th goal of the season with a free kick from a difficult angle that he placed perfectly in the far top shelf of goal to give the Saints the advantage. Then after Stoke leveled, Steven Davis scored a bit of a freak goal, as he sent a seemingly harmless cross into the box that found no one and somehow eluded the reach of Asmir Begovic. Stoke then equalized moments later in a three goal flurry that ended the first half. The second half wasn't nearly as lively as poor weather led both sides letting the game play out. Lambert is a reliable option at the forward position, and with Hull City next, is in the conversation.

Rickie Lambert had a goal and two assists in Southampton's 3-0 win over Fulham at Craven Cottage.

Lambert returned from a minor injury and was spectacular in the Saints win. The other two goals came from Adam Lallana and Jay Rodriguez, both of whom are in great form at the moment. The Saints are finally healthy again and have returned to their great form that saw them in the top four at the beginning of the season. Continue to use Saints players in fantasy, especially Adam Lallana, who is one of more consistent choices this season.

Rickie Lambert is fit and available for selection against Fulham after missing the midweek match with a hamstring injury.

Lambert failed a late fitness test and missed Southampton's 2-2 draw against Arsenal on Tuesday but he has recovered for the weekend. With the departure of Dani Osvaldo, Lambert is a top choice at striker at Southampton and is a great fantasy pick this weekend against a very suspect Fulham defense.

Rickie Lambert failed a late fitness test after picking up a hamstring injury in his last game and is not in Southampton's match squad against Arsenal.

The fact Lambert had a late fitness test means the injury isn't too serious and the striker could return as early as this weekend. Check back on Friday if you plan on using Lambert in a favorable matchup against Fulham this weekend. Sam Gallagher will start in his place.

Mauricio Pochettino made it clear he is committed to Southampton despite the changes occurring at the club.

Southampton are going through changes, mainly because of the resignation of executive chairman Nicola Cortese. There were also rumors that owner Matharina Liebherr intended to sell the club, but those remain unconfirmed. Despite the changes, Pochettino intends to stay, which is good news for Saints' fantasy owners. The manager has done a great job at Southampton and currently has his team in ninth place, seven points ahead of tenth place Hull City.

Rickie Lambert was withdrawn from last week's game due to a dead leg but is fully expected to return against West Brom.

Fellow striker Dani Osvaldo is still suspended so Lambert will lead the attack against a suspect West Brom defense. He is a good fantasy pick this week and comes at a fair price of under 15 million pounds.

Rickie Lambert played about 15 minutes in England's friendly against Germany, suggesting he'll be healthy enough to play this weekend.

Lambert missed England's friendly with Chile last friday because of a muscle injury but his return to the pitch yesterday should calm his fantasy owners. Lambert has been a vital part of the Saints' success this season and with Dani Osvaldo struggling to fit in, he should continue earning plenty of playing time to make him fantasy relevant.

Rickie Lambert is set to miss England's friendly against Chile due to a muscle injury.

The injury could keep Lambert out of the game against Germany on Tuesday as well and it's unknown if he can recover by next weekend. If Lambert misses Southampton's game at Arsenal on the 23rd, expect Dani Osvaldo to get the start.

Southampton showed off their attacking skills today, rattling off four goals against Hull City Tigers, three of which Ricky Lambert played a part in.

Lambert racked up a goal and two assists today, playing a part in each of the Saints' first three goals. The first goal was assisted from Lambert as he headed the ball to Schniederlin who headed home, he then converted a penalty after teammate Adam Lallana was brought down in the box for his only goal. He assisted the third, dropping off a pass to Lallana, who did all of the work in a fantastic display of individual athleticism to score. Despite a 2nd consecutive match without a clean sheet, the Saints are indeed marching right now.

Rickie Lambert scored a goal and assisted on the other to help the Saints to a 2-0 win over Fulham.

Lambert added three shots on target to round up a great fantasy stat line. The Saints dominated the entire game as evidenced by their 20 shots to Fulham's three. They also controlled 67% of the possession and kept yet another clean sheet. They now sit in third in the Premier League and are looking more and more like a top four contender. Defender Dejan Lovren had another standout performance on the fantasy sheet.

Rickie Lambert will look to end his goal drought when Southampton faces Fulham this weekend.

Although Lambert has played fairly well this season, he's struggled to find the net. He'll look to change that against a subpar Fulham defense. He started last game on the bench but I don't think we have a reason to worry about playing time as that was likely just some needed rest for the striker. Lambert is a fantasy options this weekend if you want to stay away from the crowd at the forward position.

Southampton striker Rickie Lambert has been selected for England's squad for their last two World Cup qualifiers.

Lambert was the obvious choice last time with injuries to Wayne Rooney and Daniel Sturridge amongst others but with Rooney, Sturridge, Danny Welbeck, and Jermain Defoe all back, it'll be interesting to see who gets the nod up front against Montenegro on Friday. If selected to start, Lambert will look to continue his good form after scoring a free kick in his match last weekend against Crystal Palace.
