Artur Boruc has recovered from a back injury and is expected to start against Aston Villa this weekend.

Boruc missed the last two games due to a back problem but is once again fit. Even considering the fact that Aston Villa are horrible at home, Boruc is not the best of options this week as there are similarly prized goalkeepers who play weaker oppositions at home. Joe Hart and Hugo Lloris are to be considered before Boruc.

Midfielder Gaston Ramirez injured his ankle (the other ankle from the one that was already giving him problems) and has been ruled out of the weekend match against Aston Villa.

Ramirez has never settled at Southampton. With Jay Rodriguez's injury and the manager's desire to give all his players a chance as the season winds down, Ramirez would have had a chance to stake his claim at the club. As it stands, he's likely to leave in the off-season.

Artur Boruc will be assessed before Southampton faces Cardiff City on Saturday.

Boruc missed Southampton's last match due to a back problem but is likely going to return on Saturday. He has a fantastic matchup against Cardiff, who have struggled mightily on the road. Since Boruc is a slight doubt for the match, it would be wise to also own his replacement, Paulo Gazzaniga, who only costs £ 1M. Gaston Ramirez will also be assessed before the match due to an ankle problem.

Southampton have confirmed the fear that Jay Rodriguez has ruptured his anterior cruciate ligament.

Rodriguez fell down awkwardly in Southampton's match against Manchester City over the weekend and the initial fears were of a serious knee injury. The torn ACL is now confirmed and Rodriguez is set to miss around six months. He is out for the season and will not be in contention for a World Cup spot this summer. We wish Jay a speedy recovery. James Ward-Prowse replaced Rodriguez after the injury and he is expected to start Southampton's next match. Ward-Prowse is a capable fantasy contributor that only costs £ 7.92M. He can be worth the price when the matchup is right.

Southampton and England striker Jay Rodriguez suffered what looked like a serious knee injury in the defeat at Manchester City.

Rodriguez was in tears as he was carried from the pitch on a stretcher, clearly fearful that the injury could keep him out of this summer's World Cup. The striker - who has scored 17 goals this season - landed awkwardly on his right knee after leaping up in the air to control the ball midway through the first half and initial fears are he could face a lengthy spell on the sidelines.

Guly do Prado has recovered from a minor injury and is once again available for selection for Southampton.

Guly is behind Jay Rodriguez and Rickie Lambert on the pecking order and is not a good fantasy option, especially against a tough Manchester City team on the road. As far as Southampton players go, Nathaniel Clyne, Kelvin Davis, and Maya Yoshida have been ruled out for the trip to the Etihad.
Apr 4 - 1:09 PM

Morgan Schneiderlin will be available for selection when Southampton face Manchester City this weekend.

Schneiderlin came off the bench last weekend against Newcastle and the midfielder looked healthy. The reason for coming off the bench was likely conditioning and a full week of training should be enough to get Schneiderlin a starting spot on Saturday. This is bad news for James Ward-Prowse, who will likely have to give up his starting spot.

Victor Wanyama will be assessed before Southampton's match against Manchester City this weekend.

Wanyama has missed about a month with a leg injury and has been close to returning for a while so we won't be surprised with him returning or being ruled out. This news makes both Wanyama and James Ward-Prowse poor fantasy options this week as there is a lot of uncertainty around who the Saints midfield will be comprised of.

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.

Nathaniel Clyne has been ruled out for Southampton's match against Newcastle on Saturday due to a groin injury.

Southampton's injury list is getting lengthy and there should be value in replacements in a winnable match against Newcastle. Calum Chambers will likely start for Clyne but he is listed as a midfielder in the Yahoo game and that limits his upside. Maya Yoshida and Kelvin Davis have also been ruled out while Steven Davis, Jay Rodriguez, Morgan Schneiderlin, and Victor Wanyama are all late fitness checks.

Morgan Schneiderlin is a doubt for this weekend's match due to an injury.

Schneiderlin missed last week and is once again a doubt. He is to be avoided in fantasy. There are many injuries in Southampton's team right now and one player almost guaranteed to start is James Ward-Prowse. Ward-Prowse plays well at home and can add up points for crosses and is also on corner kick duty. At his price, he should be strongly considered.
Mar 28 - 11:23 AM

Victor Wanyama continues to be a doubt for Southampton's home match against Newcastle on Saturday.

Wanyama missed last week due to a leg injury and is once again doubtful. Jack Cork is healthy again so he should get the start against Newcastle. Wanyama has struggled with injuries for a few months now and should not be considered a reliable fantasy option for the remainder of the season. He is battling Jack Cork for playing time and the two will limit their fantasy value.
Mar 28 - 10:48 AM

Maya Yoshida has suffered a knee injury and is set to miss the rest of season.

Yoshida was the main backup for Dejan Lovren and Jose Fonte at Southampton but the Japanese international will miss the last seven games. There is no word on how serious the injury is but there has not been talk of ruptured ligaments. Jos Hooiveld will step up as the primary backup but is not expected to get much run as long as Lovren and Fonte are healthy.
Mar 28 - 10:35 AM

Jack Cork returned from injury and started Southampton's match against Tottenham over the weekend.

Cork was considered a big doubt to play against the Spurs but he made a return and it didn't seem like the ankle was bothering him. He played well but a late yellow card capped his fantasy output to just three points. Cork shouldn't be on any fantasy teams despite being an important part of Southampton's midfield.

Southampton took a tough defeat at the hands of Tottenham, squandering a two goal advantage on the road in a 3-2 final.

It was a magical opening half hour for the Saints as they took advantage of errors and cracks in the Spurs defense. The opening goal came when Artur Boruc sent a deep goal kick toward midfield. The ball bounced precariously past Kyle Naughton and into the path of a sprinting Jay Rodiguez who finished nicely and has now scored in three straight. Then, in the 28th minute, Ricky Lambert would hook up with Lallana, and the midfielder would continue his fine season, scoring his 8th league goal of the campaign. It would all fall apart there though, as Spurs slowly began to control possession and would break through three successive times. Rodriguez and Lallana especially continue to be dependable sources of points in fantasy.
