Wanyama (ribs) is starting Saturday against Aston Villa.

Wanyama left last weekend's match due to his injury, but he returned to training this week and will take his regular spot in the starting XI, though his defensive responsibilities limit his fantasy upside.

Wanyama (ribs) is fit to play Saturday against Aston Villa, manager Ronald Koeman said Thursday.

Wanyama left last weekend's match due to the injury, but he returned to training Wednesday and is good to face the league bottom dwellers.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Wanyama scored with his only shot on goal Saturday in a 3-1 win versus Newcastle.

The goal marks his first of the campaign and it came off a short corner in which he found the ball in way too much space in the Newcastle box. Wanyama is a very quality holding midfielder, but he's not one to put up huge fantasy numbers. Best look elsewhere for midfield production for next week.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Wanyama has been suspended for the next five matches after picking up his third red card of the season last weekend against West Ham.

The hard-nosed midfielder saw red after delivering a poorly-timed tackle on Dimitri Payet, and he appears set to sit until the Saints' Mar. 19 match against Liverpool. Oriol Romeu has deputized as a holding midfielder at times this season, although the club could also turn to Jordy Clasie in Wanyama's absence.

Wanyama had an assist in Saturday's match before being sent off with a red card in the 54th minute.

Wanyama fed a ball to Maya Yoshida in the ninth minute for the game deciding goal, then was later sent off with a red card for a poor challenge on Dimitri Payet. This was his first assist so far this season in 22 Premier League appearances.

Wanyama (ankle) is starting Saturday against Crystal Palace.

Wanyama missed last weekend's match against Aston Villa due to the ailment, but he'll slot back into the starting lineup in his return. While that's a plus, his fantasy value is rather limited in most formats because of his role as a holding midfielder.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Wanyama will be fit for Saturday's match against Crystal Palace after recovering from an ankle injury, the Southern Daily Echo reports.

The Kenyan was forced out of last weekend's match against Aston Villa after picking up the knock, but he was able to participate in training all week. Wanyama is likely to start, given that he is a fixture in the middle of the field for the Saints, but his sparse offensive contributions make him a lackluster fantasy option.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Wanyama will miss Saturday Premier League game with Sunderland due to suspension.

The Kenyan was sent off in the 78-th minute of the game versus Bournemouth for receiving a second yellow card. In his absence Jordy Clasie and Oriol Romeu are the favorites to pick up the two defensive midfield positions.
