Kolarov kept a clean sheet in Saturday's 4-0 victory over Stoke City.

After a dip in form that saw City lose three straight in February into March, Kolarov spent three matches on the substitutes bench before scoring in a cameo appearance at the beginning of April. Since then, he's been excellent, keeping clean sheets in two of the past three and adding two assists in his past four. With Gael Clichy fit once again, Kolarov may not be selected for Tuesday's Champions League tie, but he has been a consistent performer in the Premier League of late.

Despite putting up a dud in a favorable matchup Monday against West Brom, Harry Kane still makes for a fine captain selection this week against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Kolarov picked up an assist on six crosses and took one shot off target and three tackles in Tuesday's 1-1 draw to Newcastle.

Kolarov had a busy day both offensively and defensively with the teams swinging back and forth restlessly throughout the whole game. He delivered a perfect cross from free kick finding the header of, the clearly in offside position, Sergio Aguero for the opener. With City playing in two fronts and Gael Clichy getting injured, Kolarov seems to have cemented back his starting role in Premier League and he can be a very fantasy friendly defender when on the pitch.

Kolarov kept a clean sheet in Saturday's 3-0 victory over Chelsea.

On a fairly quiet day for the City back-four, Kolarov put together a steady performance. The Serbian full back has been lighting up the score sheet of late, scoring a goal and adding an assist in his previous two matches after spending three on the sidelines, but his consistent play over the past two weeks has put him back in the starting XI—at least in domestic play.

Kolarov hammered a goal on two shots (both on target) and tallied two dribbles and a clean sheet in 34 minutes off the bench in the Saturday's 4-0 win over Bournemouth.

With the absence of multiple key players in midfield, Kolarov had to be called upon duty, in the second half, in a more advanced role, replacing Kevin de Bruyne, and he responded magnificently. An amazing run ended up with a fantastic shot that put the final stamp to the scoreboard. That's his first appearance in a month, though, after losing out his starting left back role to Gael Clichy. When trusted on the field, however, he's a very capable fantasy performer with three goals, two assists and 11 clean sheets.

Kolarov picked up a defensive clean sheet, three aerials won, one dribble and one clearance in 12 minutes off the bench in the 1-0 away win over Sunderland on Tuesday.

Kolarov endured a quiet return from his calf injury, although, he should be ready to go full swing on Saturday versus Leicester. With the game having a strong title flavor Kolarov should be right back in the starting XI pushing Gael Clichy back to the bench. The former is probably the best fantasy weapon from the Citizens' rearguard. He's already got two goals and two assists on the season and is producing an average of 1.5 shots, just short of two key passes and a combined total of four crosses and long balls per game to make him a potential fantasy outburst on any given game.

Kolarov (calf) will be available off the bench versus Sunderland on Tuesday.

Kolarov wasn't deemed fit enough to make a full game and his fantasy upside for this game off the bench will be very limited. Gael Clichy is grabbing another start.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Kolarov (calf) is fit to play Tuesday against Sunderland.

Kolarov suffered the injury in mid-January and had been replaced by Gael Clichy. Given the opposition, it's not out of the question that Clichy could get another start, though Kolarov represents significantly more fantasy upside given his offensive capabilities.

Kolarov (calf) may be able to return to training next week, manager Manuel Pellegrini said Friday.

If Kolarov is able to train early next week, he'll have a shot at playing Tuesday against Sunderland, though that seems like quite a long shot. The more likely scenario is that he could play Feb. 6 against Leicester City, a huge game in the title race. Gael Clichy is expected to continue to start while Kolarov is out.
