Stones was removed in the 59th minute of Sunday's 3-1 victory over West Ham. However, manager Pep Guardiola revealed it was due to ineffectiveness, not injury. "Stones is not injured, I don't think so. I didn't speak to the doctor. I saw him tired and with problems, no injury," Guardiola said.

The £47.5 million acquisition from Everton has not lived up to his price tag to this point, having yet to keep a clean sheet in the Premier League while starting all three matches. After conceding a goal in the 58th minute, he was promptly removed by Guardiola in favor of the more experienced Aleksandar Kolarov, preferring to put his back-four in unfamiliar positions than to keep Stones in. Regardless of his domestic form, Stones was called up to the England squad for their World Cup qualifier against Slovakia where he'll look to find his footing once again.

August 13, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Stones is starting on Saturday against Sunderland.

Stones transferred to Man City earlier this week, but with Vincent Kompany and Nicolas Otamendi out injured, he'll be thrust right into the starting XI alongside Aleksandar Kolarov.

August 12, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Stones has been deemed fit to make his Man City debut on Saturday against Sunderland, according to Tom Williams of the AFP.

Stones joined Manchester City earlier this week, and because he had been training normally with Everton before the transfer, he didn't have to make up any fitness work. Given City's defensive injury struggles, Stones could very well start right away.

August 9, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Stones signed a six-year contract with Manchester City on Tuesday after transferring from Everton.

The fee is believed to be an Everton record £50 million, quite a profit for the side who bought him in Jan. 2013 for £3 million from Barnsley. Stones is expected to start for City fairly quickly, as they have major questions in central defense with Vincent Kompany out with another injury. Stones is a part of City's Champions League squad for their qualifier against Steaua Bucuresti, and he could provide solid fantasy value this season given City's dominance over most opponents in the Prem.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Everton is engaged in talks with Manchester City about a transfer of Stones this summer, reports Sky Sports.

It is understood that Manchester City is looking to keep any transfer cost below £50 million, which is the value placed on the defender by Everton. Stones was the subject of three failed transfer bids from Chelsea last summer.

July 6, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Stones has informed Everton that he wishes to leave the club to join Manchester City this summer, according to the Daily Mail.

Everton are seeking a transfer fee of £50 million, but is on the wish list of City manager Pep Guardiola. Everton successfully fended off interest in the defender from Chelsea last season, but may not be able to pull off the feat two years in a row.

June 2, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Stones was named in England final 23-man squad for Euro 2016.

Stones is one of only three center backs in the squad but he was the odd man out in England's dress rehearsal against Portugal on Thursday. He and Gary Cahill will be in a vicious competition for one of the spots with Chris Smalling set to have the other one. Even if he starts some of the games he does't bring much fantasy value. The defender finished his season with the Toffees with no goals or assists and eight clean sheets in 33 Premier League appearances (31 starts).

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Stones (undisclosed) started and made the full 90 minutes in Saturday's FA Cup semi-final loss to Man Utd.

Stones gave a scare to his team when he left the Merseyside derby with an injury. Fortunately, it didn't turn out to be a serious one. Stones' presence on the pitch is crucial as Ramiro Funes Mori (suspension) and Seamus Coleman (hamstring) are both out for a while.
