O'Shea (calf) is starting Wednesday against Swansea.

While the return to fitness is certainly a plus, Sunderland have been so poor defensively this season that it's tough to make a strong case for O'Shea's inclusion on many fantasy rosters.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

O'Shea (calf) is a late fitness test for Wednesday's match at Swansea City.

O'Shea injured his calf during the festive period and was withdrawn on 65 minutes against Arsenal over the weekend. The captain has featured in 14 Premier League matches and has shown himself to be one of the few dependable pieces in Sunderland's back line.

O'Shea (hamstring) is starting Monday against Crystal Palace.

O'Shea missed Sunderland's match before the international break due to the injury, but he returned to full training in the past few days and was cleared to play. Palace have been a bit up-and-down defensively this season, though they'll be led by former Black Cat Connor Wickham on Monday.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

O'Shea is out for Saturday's game against Southampton because of a hamstring injury.

O'Shea was reportedly fit to play as of Friday, but he apparently suffered a setback with the issue that will now hold him out until after the international break.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

O'Shea (hamstring) is fit to play against Southampton on Saturday.

The 34-year-old has struggled to stay in the side this season and his diminished skills have contributed to the team's plunge into the relegation zone. He's yet to be in the side for a clean sheet and shouldn't factor into any fantasy lineups.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

O'Shea (hamstring) is out Sunday against Everton.

Younes Kaboul is also sidelined for the match, and Sunderland will go with a three-CB setup, leaving Patrick van Aanholt and DeAndre Yedlin on the wings.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

O'Shea is questionable for Sunday's match against Everton because of a groin injury suffered last Sunday against Newcastle.

The Black Cats were hit hard by injuries, as Younes Kaboul and Ola Toivonen went down with groin injuries. O'Shea hasn't been a very reliable fantasy option this season, though manager Sam Allardyce's defensive style may help in that regard.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

O'Shea picked up a yellow card in Sunderland's scoreless Premier League draw with Burnley on Saturday.

The clean sheet was O'Shea's (and Sunderland's) first of the season and they don't figure to get many after this.
