Richardson (calf) has been ruled out for Saturday's match against Watford.

Richardson's fantasy upside has been fairly limited for most of the season, so even a return to fitness wasn't going to make him a potential target for fantasy managers.

With a plethora of injuries in the Arsenal midfield, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has a huge opportunity to prove his worth to fantasy owners in the coming weeks.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Richardson (calf) is out Saturday against Southampton.

Richardson's absence is a bit of a hit to Villa, though he's hardly a high-upside fantasy option even when fit.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Richardson could miss Saturday's match against Southampton because of a calf injury, interim manager Eric Black said Friday.

While Richardson's absence certainly isn't a plus, his fantasy upside was fairly limited anyway.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Richardson picked up a yellow card on three fouls and took one shot off target and one cross in 81 minutes of play in Saturday's 1-0 loss to Man Utd.

With Villa under new management, Richardson has found himself some playing time as a starter in the midfield of the team. Once, a very promising talent, the 31-year-old seems to be on the decline of his career with the total number of games he's played over the past three season getting significantly reduced from 31, two years ago, to 22, last year, to 11 this campaign with only four games left. He's only had one assist and no goals, thus far this season and even if he continues to start in the more offensive role he's facing strong defensive sides - Southampton, Watford and Arsenal - in three of the Villans' last four games.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Richardson checked in 20 minutes off the bench in his return from calf injury. He registered two shots off target and a total of merely six touches in the 2-0 dreadful loss to West Ham on Tuesday.

Richardson wasn't expected to be fit for the game and is obviously still very rusty and will need a little time to gain better fitness. That's his first Premier League appearance for 2016 and with a total of nine for the season, one assist and no goals his fantasy value is very low in most formats.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Richardson is unlikely to be fit for Tuesday's match versus West Ham as he struggles with a calf injury.

The 31-year-old will miss his third consecutive match Tuesday after suffering the injury on Jan. 19. Aly Cissokho has performed well as the starting fullback in Richardson's absence, and will likely continue on in that role moving forward, leaving the latter to serve as a utility substitute option.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Richardson got off six crosses and recorded an assist in a 3-2 loss to Watford on Saturday.

Rihardson hasn't been starting much this season, but it appears he's captured the right-back role for now. He's still a talented attacker from a defensive position and it makes him intriguing for fantasy purposes.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Richardson could step in at left-back for this weekend's match versus Everton, with Jordan Amavi lost for the season to a knee injury.

The 31-year-old has made just three league starts this season, but his prior experience makes him a prime candidate to step in for Amavi, with no other true left-backs currently on the roster.
