Leicester defender Matt Upson is nearing full fitness and could return to action next week.

The defender has been sidelined with an ankle injury for an extended period of time but is finally training with the Foxes. We are not yet sure who Upson will replace in Leicester's defense but he will likely be given a go considering how leaky the defense has been lately. We don't consider him a good fantasy option for the time being.

Defender Ritchie De Laet has signed a new contract at Leicester City.

The Belgian defender was once a Manchester United player but didn't live to up expectations and was sold to Leicester. He's made quite the turnaround and is one of the better players Leicester have. He is also quite the fantasy stud, currently sitting in seventh place in points amongst defenders. At £ 8.19M, use him comfortably in the Yahoo! game.

Leicester City find themselves close to relegation range after suffering their fourth straight loss in a 2-0 final against Southampton.

It also marks four straight without a goal as the Foxes' attack, once thriving behind the form of Ulloa, now looks completely inept. It did not help their morale any as they played in miserable conditions to a side that is as hot as come right now. The Foxes do not appear to have the ability to adjust when the attack is not clicking and clamp down defensively, so it is a fantasy wasteland for Leicester these days. They have a home game against Sunderland with the international break to prepare for it. If they cannot get a positive result then, it could spell disaster at King Power Stadium.

Riyad Mahrez was the only Leicester City player to get double digit points in their loss to Swansea over the weekend.

It was a tough match for Leicester who were kept scoreless. Mahrez has been a bright spot in this team's season but their attack has regressed after a hot start and it's now hard to trust the midfielder for consistency. The good part is that Mahrez earns many of his points on the defensive ends, so he should continue performing at an average rate even with Leicester struggling to score.

Leicester City midfielder Marc Albrighton returned to the squad this weekend and started against Newcastle.

Marc Albrighton had missed a number of games despite being healthy and wasn't even being included in the matchday squad. That changed this weekend with a start against Newcastle but the winger didn't do too much to impress Nigel Pearson. He struck the crossbar early on but failed to cause any other danger in front of Tim Krul. He walked away from the match with five Yahoo! fantasy points but we aren't excited about his future fantasy potential just yet. Stay away for now.

Leicester City have loaned out winger Adam Dawson to Nuneaton Town.

Nuneaton Town have a new manager in Liam Daish and he's made his first signing by loaning Adam Dawson from Leicester. Leicester boss Nigel Pearson has been complaining about some of his players being unhappy due to lack of playing time and he could continue this trend of loaning out some players in an attempt to keep them happy. Despite that, the fantasy implications at Leicester don't change as we don't anticipate important players to be affected by the moves.

Leicester City manager Nigel Pearson has told the press that it is impossible for him to keep all of Leicester's players happy due to having a large squad.

This is a bit of an odd one but we can't say we didn't see it coming. Pearson complained all summer about his lack of depth and now that the club have provided him with players, Pearson complains that it's hard to keep them all happy. As the season continues, we'd expect injuries and suspensions to give more and more players a chance to prove themselves, but Pearson's job is to keep the players on track and he needs to make sure there isn't too much negative morale in his team.

Marc Albrighton has lost his spot in Leicester's rotation.

Albrighton is a fairly young prospect who has showed flashes of brilliance but has also suffered his share of injuries. He was let go by Aston Villa at the end of last season in what many thought was a horrible move, but it turns out Villa were correct after all as Albrighton can't even break into the Leicester matchdayday squad. He is not worth owning in even the deepest of fantasy leagues.

Leo Ulloa was kept quiet in Leicester's 2-2 draw against Burnley.

We hyped up Ulloa a lot here on Rotoworld this week and it had all made sense - an in form striker playing at home against extremely poor opposition. But it just wasn't his day. Ulloa couldn't get any good shots on goal and in turn ended up disappointing fantasy managers with the lack of points. Despite the quiet performance, we aren't avoiding Ulloa going ahead. He has shown he can produce and can be had for cheap in most fantasy formats going forward. Use with confidence in the right match-ups.

Leicester dropped two points at home after conceding a free kick goal to Ross Wallace in the closing minutes of stoppage time.

Riyad Mahrez assisted on a goal and scored one of his own within a seven-minute span towards the end of the first half to give Leicester a 2-1 lead heading into the half. Unfortunately, a late game-tying goal spoiled what should've been a well earned three points at home. Leicester have been relying on Leonardo Ulloa for goals this season so it's nice to see Mahrez contribute and teammate Jeffrey Schlupp get in on the action. Leicester have a favorable schedule coming up so keep an eye on them. They certainly have a few bargains within their starting XI.

Leonardo Ulloa will have the opportunity to add to his five Premier League goals as Leicester face Burnley in Week 7.

Leicester's move for Ulloa has paid dividends already with the Argentine striker totting up five goals in his first six Premier League appearances, displaying some deadly finishing ability. After a quiet match against Crystal Palace in Week 6, Ulloa will be confident of adding to his tally as his side face Burnley at home this weekend.

Leicester's Richie De Laet comes highly recommended for the home match against Burnley.

Leicester have a great clean sheet opportunity against a Burnley side struggling for goals and missing their two best strikers. In addition to potential clean sheet points, De Laet is also picking up a bunch of miscellaneous returns in the Yahoo fantasy game, so the defender should be in your thoughts as an option for Week 7.

Leicester City defender Liam Moore believes the club need to learn how to win ugly.

That's a fairly accurate lesson Moore has learned from the weekend. Leicester conceded two ugly goals from Crystal Palace, both results of set-pieces, that led to their 2-0 loss. It was an overall scrappy game from start to finish, and it's those close one that usually determine whether a team achieves their goal. Leicester's goal is to stay in the Premier League, and they'll need to win a few close ones along the way to ensure they reach that goal.

Leonardo Ulloa scored a brace as Leicester City came from behind to stun Manchester United in a thrilling match.

The Foxes went down 2-0 and 3-1 before storming back in the second half to win 5-3 over struggling Manchester United. Ulloa scored the first and last with the others supplied by Nugent, Cambiasso and Vardy.
Sep 21 - 11:01 AM

Schmeichel, De Laet, Morgan, Moore, Konchesky, Hammond, Cambiasso, Nugent, Drinkwater, Vardy, Ulloa

Kasper Schmeichel returns to the starting line-up as the Foxes prepare to host Manchester United. The number one goalkeeper is joined in the starting line-up by Cambiasso, Drinkwater and Vardy while Hamer, King, Mahrez and Schlupp are only reserves today.
