Drogba (illness) is in the starting lineup Saturday against Chicago.

After missing practice on Thursday with an illness it was questionable if Drogba would be able to play Saturday, but he has recovered from it and is in the starting lineup. He could have a big game going against a Chicago defense that has struggled this season.

August 19, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Drogba was unable to train Thursday due to an illness, and he is questionable to play Saturday against Chicago, the Montreal Gazette reports.

Drogba literally called out sick on Thursday, but the ailment doesn't appear to be overly serious. If he is unable to play, or at least unable to start, Matteo Mancosu would likely lead the line, with Dom Oduro or Michael Salazar moving into the starting lineup.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Drogba netted a hat-trick on six shot attempts during Saturday's 5-1 demolition of the Union.

It was a vintage performance from the veteran striker, who made his presence felt inside the penalty area and scored the first three goals of the match inside 51 minutes. Drogba had gone three matches without scoring, but Saturday's outburst brought him to an impressive eight goals and three assists in just 12 appearances this season and will look to ride this momentum into next Sunday's matchup with DC United.

Drogba is back in Montreal's starting lineup for their match against NYC FC on Sunday. Drogba had missed the last three matches due to a thigh injury.

Any time Drogba is in the lineup, there's a good chance that Montreal finds the back of the net. NYC FC has played solid defense as of late, but just allowed three goals last match at SKC.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Drogba (thigh) is expected to play Sunday against New York City FC, CTV in Montreal reports.

Drogba has missed the last three games due to the injury, and his return will come at a great time for the Impact, who will be without Ignacio Piatti after he was given a one-match suspension for a dangerous foul in their last game. It is still unclear if Drogba will start, which obviously affects his fantasy upside greatly.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Drogba will not play Saturday against Real Salt Lake because of his thigh injury, Le Journal de Montreal reports.

The injury is not considered overly serious, and while it will keep Drogba out for a second consecutive game, he could return July 13 against Portland, though he has shown some hesitation this season for playing on artificial turf. Dominic Oduro will likely start up front in Drogba's absence.

July 2, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Drogba is not in the lineup Saturday against New England with a thigh injury.

After missing the start of the season with a knee injury, Drogba has come back and been one of the best players in MLS, but he will not be available Saturday. Dominic Oduro is starting alone up top.

May 29, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

After missing last match due to a hip injury, Drogba was back to his usual self with a goal and assist in a full 90 minutes against the Galaxy.

As long as Drogba stays healthy, he'll be one of the best forwards in the league. In his last seven matches, Drogba has five goals and four assists. Even at a high price, he's more often than not worth it.
