Falcao: Past News Updates   ( ▲ View most recent update )

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Falcao may be in the starting XI against Newcastle on Saturday in the wake of Diego Costa's three-match ban.

Falcao has started just one match this season, this past week's mid-week Capital One Cup tie against Walsall. He has one goal in five Premier League appearances, though has been limited to just 74 total minutes. He or Loic Remy will start in this match, though it's unlikely Mourinho will reveal his starting striker until Saturday.

Falcao (knee) (quad) is available off the bench for Saturday's match against Arsenal.

Falcao will assume his normal role off the bench Saturday despite needing to pass a late fitness test for a knee injury. He always possesses the ability to score when on the pitch, but his limited playing time curbs his value across virtually every breadth of format.

Falcao (knee) will have a late fitness test ahead of Saturday's match against Arsenal.

Falcao was held out of Wednesday's Champions League match against Maccabi Tel Aviv due to the ailment, with Loic Remy getting the start and Diego Costa coming off the bench. Given that the other two forwards are fit, it's unlikely Falcao would have gotten a start anyway, which caps his fantasy upside.

Falcao scored his first goal for Chelsea in Saturday's 2-1 defeat to Crystal Palace.

Falcao positioned himself brilliantly to tap in Pedro's excellent 79th minute cross the draw the home side level in a game they went on to lose. After replacing Willian in the 65th minute, he had a total of three shots and was preferred off the bench to fellow back-up striker Loic Remy.

Falcao came on for Willian in the 83rd minute and his single shot was off target during Chelsea's 2-2 draw with Swansea City on Saturday.

Falcao got the substitute call ahead of Loic Remy, though it wasn't terribly prolific, as Diego Costa was able to go the full 90 minutes after being questionable with a hamstring injury. Remy and Falcao will continue to be reserve players while Costa is fit, which limits their respective fantasy upsides.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Falcao could start Saturday against Swansea City if Diego Costa (hamstring) is unable to play, manager Jose Mourinho said Friday.

Costa is expected to train Friday, but the decision about whether he will play Saturday won't be made until the training staff sees how his body responds. Falcao and Loic Remy are the two options for Mourinho if Costa can't go, with Remy the likeliest of the two given his longer tenure with the club in a similar role.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Falcao officially joined Chelsea on Friday on a season-long loan from Monaco.

Falcao spent last season on loan at Manchester United and managed only four goals while playing minimally. He was widely believed to be joining Chelsea this season in the hope that he can resurrect his career and potentially land a large transfer fee for Monaco, who has no interest in paying his exorbitant salary. He's unlikely to start at Chelsea ahead of Diego Costa in Premier League matches, though manager Jose Mourinho could start the two of them together, as they did briefly at Atletico Madrid.
