Falcao is still in recovery from his thigh injury and won't play Sunday against Spurs.

With Diego Costa and Loic Remy fully fit, Falcao wasn't likely to get the start anyway, as his fantasy value remains low because of his place on the depth chart.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Falcao (thigh) is getting closer to returning from his injury.

The Colombian striker hasn't played since Oct. 31 and has been a shell of his former self. He hasn't scored in the Premier League since Aug. 29 and hasn't featured in the Champions League, either because of injury or ineffectiveness. His returnóbe it this weekend or down the lineówill provide another attacking option for the Blues, but he is far from the striker who scorer 70 goals in 90 matches for Atletico Madrid.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Falcao (thigh) has been ruled out for Saturday's match against Stoke.

The once-potent striker has seen himself reduced to mop-up duty and poorly taken chances in what's been a lost season for the Blues. Loaned from Monaco to shore up the team's attack, he has just one goal in 11 matches across all competitions, which was scored back on Aug. 29 in a losing effort. The Colombian center forward is a far cry from the attacking threat he once was that scored 70 goals in 90 matches for Atletico Madrid.

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.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

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.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

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.
