Coloccini scored an own goal and picked up a yellow card in Saturday's 1-0 loss to Arsenal.

The Magpies' captain was unlucky to deflect Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain's 52nd minute strike into the net for the only goal of the game. The typically stout center back has scored just six goals in 252 matches for Newcastle United, but even at 33-years-old, is a sound defender most of the time. However, he's not really much of a fantasy option.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Coloccini (Achilles) is starting Sunday against Southampton.

Coloccini did not travel on the club's preseason tour to the United States, and there was a chance he wasn't going to be fit for the opener. However, he worked through the issue and will be out there against a very solid Southampton attack.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Coloccini is not playing during the club's preseason U.S. tour, and he could miss the start of the season because of a lack of match fitness, the Newcastle Chronicle reports.

Coloccini battled an Achilles injury, and while he appears to be over that, he's still far removed from the fitness levels of his teammates, and he's unlikely to get there in time for the season-opener. He may be fit enough for the bench, but a starting spot early on seems unlikely.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Coloccini picked up the clean sheet in Newcastle's 0-0 draw with Aston Villa on Saturday.

Coloccini had a pretty easy time out against the toothless Villa attack. With another good matchup next week against Crystal Palace, the Toon captain is a solid choice as a fantasy defender given his discounted price and chances at another clean sheet.

Coloccini wore the captain's arm band for the full 90 minutes in Newcastle's 0-2 loss to Manchester City.

Coloccini, who was in question after a stop and start preseason, resumed his role as Toon captain and continues to be manager Alan Pardew's first choice center-back. Now is the time to take a look at Newcastle defenders with upcoming matches against Aston Villa, Crystal Palace, Southampton, Hull City, and Stoke City, all good matchups on paper.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Coloccini was held out of Thursday's friendly against Sheffield Wednesday with an undisclosed injury.

This was Newcastle's fourth friendly in the last two weeks, so it's very likely that Coloccini was held out of Thursday's match to rest. As of right now, it seems like he'll be available for the EPL opener against Manchester City on Aug. 17.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Newcastle manager Alan Pardew is hopeful of convincing Coloccini to stay with Newcastle this summer after the defender left twice this year to be in South America, reports the Mirror.

Pardew wants the defender to honor the remaining two years on his contract, though the player asked to quit the team for personal reasons last season. Coloccini has also been to South America and away from the team twice this year.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Coloccini returned and played a full 90 minutes in Newcastle's 0-1 loss to Fulham on Saturday.

Coloccini wasn't able to keep Newcastle from dropping points against lowly Fulham. The Toon captain will have a decent chance at a clean sheet next week, when Newcastle take on Crystal Palace at home.
