Drogba (toe) will start in Saturday's game against the Revolution.

Drogba rested his ailing toe earlier in the week against the Earthquakes but he's in line for a full compliment of minutes Saturday since his previous absence wasn't much of a concern at all with Montreal resting numerous starters in preparation for New England.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Drogba (toe) will not play Wednesday against the Earthquakes, as he has been sent back to Montreal to rest before Saturday's match against New England, the CBC reports.

The Impact have decided to rest a number of players, including Ignacio Piatti and Evan Bush, which will open up opportunities for others, including Dom Oduro, who will likely start for Drogba.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Drogba took seven shots and bagged three goals during Montreal's 4-3 win over Chicago on Saturday.

Drogba got his first start for the Impact on Saturday after missing some time with a toe injury. He played the full 90 minutes and looked like the dominant force that Montreal thought they were getting when they signed him as a DP. Drogba will continue to be the focal point of the attack, and there are likely many more goals to come if he can stay fit.

Drogba (toe) is starting Saturday against Chicago.

Drogba has played just 31 minutes since his MLS debut back in July, but he's fit enough to slot into the starting lineup Saturday. However, it's likely that he won't play 90 minutes, which means Dominic Oduro could still play off the bench.

Drogba (toe) trained in full Wednesday, Lloyd Barker of TSN reports.

Drogba has logged just 31 minutes of MLS action since joining the Impact back in July, but this Saturday against the Fire could be his true coming out party, especially if he starts.

Drogba (toe) is not expected to play in Saturday's game against Toronto FC, Mike Slane of reports.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Drogba has been dealing with a toe injury for the last couple of weeks but he still intends to play in Saturday's game against Toronto FC, John Molinaro of Sportsnet reports.

Drogba made his MLS debut this past weekend with 31 minutes off the bench and he was apparently dealing with the toe injury during that outing as well. Over time he's expected to start, but his current spat with injury may ultimately keep him on the bench against Toronto FC.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Drogba will begin Saturday's game against the Union off the bench.

Saturday is the first time that Drogba is available to play for his new squad, but he's still working on his match fitness as Dominic Oduro will continue to start at the forefront of Montreal's 4-2-3-1 formation. However, Drogba is expected to overtake Oduro for that spot in due time as he begins his MLS tenure after a stunning club career in Europe.
