Copa America 2016

Ben Mee    D    Burnley
Mee was subbed off at halftime with a bruised shin in Sunday's 2-0 loss to Manchester United.

Fantasy Analysis

Mee was replaced by James Tarkowski and Tarkowski could feature in the Clarets' starting XI if Mee is sidelined. The Clarets' next match is Saturday against Crystal Palace and the loss of Mee would be a crushing blow.
Paul Pogba    M    Manchester United
Pogba limped off late in Sunday's 2-0 victory over Burnley.

Fantasy Analysis

Pogba came close to scoring his fifth goal of the season as he found open space in the second half and forced Tom Heaton into a good save before just missing the near-post on a hard shot from outside the box. Pogba limped off in the 90th minute and his availability for Thursday's Manchester derby is in doubt. Michael Carrick could feature in the starting XI if Pogba is unfit.
Andy Carroll    F    West Ham United
Carroll could be available for Saturday's match with Stoke City, West Ham Chairman, David Gold, reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Carroll was unable to play in Saturday's 0-0 draw with Everton. Jonathan Calleri made his Premier League debut in the match, while Diafra Sakho also received playing time with Carroll sidelined.
Dejan Lovren    D    Liverpool
Lovren suffered an undisclosed injury during Saturday's match with Crystal Palace.

Fantasy Analysis

Lovren was replaced by Trent Alexander-Arnold in the 78th minute of the match. He was able to walk off under his own power and will hope to return in time for the Watford match 1 May.
Daniel Sturridge    F    Liverpool
Sturridge is not in the 18-man squad for Sunday's match with Crystal Palace.

Fantasy Analysis

Sturridge had trained leading up to the match, which makes it difficult to tell whether he is dealing with an injury or has been dropped from the squad. Divock Origi will start at striker, while Ben Woodburn is available off the bench should he be called upon.
Loic Remy    F    Crystal Palace
Remy (calf) is not in the 18-man squad for Sunday's match with Liverpool.

Fantasy Analysis

Remy misses out once again due to injury. His return to full training is a great sign, though the Liverpool match comes too early. He could return to the side this week due to Palace's busy fixture list.
David Silva    M    Manchester City
Silva was subbed off because of a knock during Saturday's FA Cup semifinal with Arsenal.

Fantasy Analysis

Silva was replaced by Raheem Sterling in the 23rd minute of the match. The injury didn't appear to be serious as he was able to walk off under his own power. This injury puts his availability for Thursday's Manchester Derby in question.
Sam Vokes    F    Burnley
Vokes (hamstring) is not in the 18-man squad to face Manchester United on Sunday.

Fantasy Analysis

Vokes wasn't guaranteed a spot in the starting XI even when fully fit, so while his absence hurts the Clarets' attacking depth, it shouldn't affect too many fantasy decisions. Andre Gray and Ashley Barnes will partner up front.
Scott Arfield    M    Burnley
Arfield (knee) is not in the 18-man squad to face Manchester United on Sunday.

Fantasy Analysis

Arfield was doubtful for the match because of the injury, so it's not overly surprising that he'll miss out. Joey Barton and Jeff Hendrick will line up in central midfield, with George Boyd and Robbie Brady on the wings.
Dan Gosling    M    AFC Bournemouth
Gosling limped off with an apparent injury in Saturday's 4-0 victory over Middlesbrough.

Fantasy Analysis

After recently recovering from a couple injuries the substitution may have been precautionary as the Cherries are dealing with a plethora of injuries in the midfield. Gosling was replaced by Lewis Cook and Cook will likely earn the starting role Saturday against Sunderland if Gosling is unable to perform.
Gary Cahill    D    Chelsea
Cahill was not included in the 18-man match day squad for Saturday's FA Cup semifinal with Tottenham.

Fantasy Analysis

Cahill's lack of fitness allowed Nathan Ake the chance to gain a rare start in defence. Cahill will hope to return for next Sunday's match with Southampton.
Oumar Niasse    F    Hull City
Niasse received a red card in Saturday's match with Watford.

Fantasy Analysis

Niasse was show a straight red card in the 25th minute after the referee judged that his studs made contact with a Watford player's shin. The decision to send him off was controversial. Niasse and Hull will likely appeal the suspension.
Marten De Roon    M    Middlesbrough
De Roon was subbed off because of an injury during Saturday's match with Bournemouth.

Fantasy Analysis

De Roon was replaced by Fabio in the 37th of the match. More information on his injury will be available once he's been evaluated by the medical staff.
Gaston Ramirez    F/M    Middlesbrough
Ramirez was sent off for a second yellow during Saturday's match with Bournemouth.

Fantasy Analysis

Ramirez harshly received a second yellow in the 19th minute of the match. The last thing Boro needed was to have one of their players sent off after going down 2-0 early in the match.
Leroy Fer    M    Swansea City
Fer subbed off with an undisclosed injury during Saturday's match with Stoke.

Fantasy Analysis

Fer was replaced by Ki Sung-Yueng in the 20th minute of the match. The extent of his injury isn't clear at this point but will be available after further medical evaluation.
Sofiane Feghouli    F/M    West Ham United
Feghouli is not in the 18-man match day squad for Saturday's match with Everton.

Fantasy Analysis

Feghouli has been left out of the side for an undisclosed reason. Jonathan Calleri will make his first Premier League start in place of Feghouli.
Robert Snodgrass    M    West Ham United
Snodgrass is not in the 18-man match day squad for Saturday's match with Everton.

Fantasy Analysis

Snodgrass was expected to be available heading into Saturday's match. Whether he's being rested or is dealing with an injury isn't clear. Manuel Lanzini will see a bump in free-kick duties with Snodgrass sidelined.
Martin Olsson    D    Swansea City
Olsson is not in the 18-man squad to face Stoke City on Saturday because of a minor hamstring injury.

Fantasy Analysis

Stephen Kingsley will get the start in his absence.
Jonathan Walters    F    Stoke City
Walters (knee) is not in the 18-man side to face Swansea City on Saturday.

Fantasy Analysis

Walters was expected to return to training on Friday after having fluid drained from his knee, but it was apparently not enough to get him back into the squad. Peter Crouch will partner with Saido Berahino at the head of the Potters' attack.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic    F    Manchester United
Ibrahimovic (knee) is unlikely to play in the remainder of the season, Sky Sports reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Ibrahimovic landed awkwardly during Thursday's 2-1 win over Anderlecht in the Europa League quarter final. He appeared to be in a serious amount of pain and was immediately replaced in the match. His injury absence could allow Wayne Rooney and Anthony Martial the chance to gain more playing time.
Marcos Rojo    D    Manchester United

Fantasy Analysis

Rojo is unlikely to feature in Sunday's match with Burnley based on the three-day turnaround. United have somewhat of a central defensive crisis right now with Phil Jones and Chris Smalling also sideline. Daley Blind could be asked to fill in at centre-back in Sunday's match at the very least.
Gabriel Jesus    F    Manchester City
Jesus (foot) will travel with the squad for Sunday's FA Cup semifinal with Arsenal.

Fantasy Analysis

Jesus has progressed enough in his rehab and team training to be named in the squad that will travel to Wembley. After such a long period of time on the sidelines, it's unlikely that Jesus will make the starting XI, but he could come off the bench to feature. His eventual inclusion could cause Sergio Aguero to lose playing time, which happened earlier in the season when Jesus arrive from Brazil.
John Stones    D    Manchester City
Stones (undisclosed) has a muscular problem and has been ruled out of Sunday's FA Cup semifinal with Arsenal.

Fantasy Analysis

Stones also missed last weekend's 3-0 demolition of Southampton through injury. His absence has allowed Vincent Kompany to gain his spot in the starting XI back now that the Belgian defender is healthy. Nicolas Otamendi is expected to join Kompany at centre-back.
Omar Elabdellaoui    D    Hull City
Elabdellaoui (back) has been ruled out of Saturday's match with Hull City.

Fantasy Analysis

Elabdellaoui will miss out again, though it shouldn't hurt the squad strength all that much since he has been out since the international break in March. Lazar Markovic is expected to start on right-wing, while manager Marco Silva could opt for defensive security with Harry Maguire or offensive prowess with Ahmed Elmohamady at right-back.
James McCarthy    M    Everton
McCarthy could miss the rest of the season because of his hamstring injury, the team's official website reports.

Fantasy Analysis

McCarthy's continued absence certainly hurts Everton's midfield depth, though his fantasy value wasn't that high anyway due to a lack of a regular spot in the starting XI.
Enner Valencia    F    Everton
Valencia is ineligible to play in Saturday's match against West Ham due to the terms of his loan agreement.

Fantasy Analysis

Valencia's absence hurts the Toffees' attacking depth, though he was unlikely to get a start anyway, which limits his fantasy upside.
Andrew Surman    M    AFC Bournemouth
Surman (knee) has been ruled out for Saturday's match against Middlesbrough.

Fantasy Analysis

Without a return to training yet, it's unsurprising that Surman won't be able to make this weekend's match. Dan Gosling could return from his own injury to grab a start, with Surman and Jack Wilshere (leg) out.
Danny Ings    F    Liverpool
Ings (knee) has stepped up his rehabilitation and will begin a running program.

Fantasy Analysis

Ings has already been ruled out for the season, though the step up in rehab is a good sign that things are going according to plan.
Jordan Henderson    M    Liverpool
Henderson (foot) has not returned to training and will miss Sunday's match with Crystal Palace.

Fantasy Analysis

There was no new information from Jurgen Klopp during this week's press conference. Henderson's season has been derailed since February due to the injury. He will continue to heal and hope to return by the end of the season.
Adam Lallana    M    Liverpool
Lallana (hip) is progressing and could return to training next week.

Fantasy Analysis

Lallana remains out and will miss Saturday's match with Crystal Palace. His return to training will be a good sign for the club, but he will likely need time before he can return to match minutes. Georginio Wijnaldum and Emre Can will continue to start at centre-mid as long as they're healthy.
Cameron Carter-Vickers    D    Tottenham Hotspur
Carter-Vickers is improving and could return to training in May.

Fantasy Analysis

Carter-Vickers hasn't featured in the Premier League this season, though he has started in four cup games. His lack of playing time in the Premier League gives him very little fantasy value.
