Arteta came on in the first half of Saturday's match against West Brom for Francis Coquelin after he suffered a knee injury, but he then came off at halftime because of a calf issue, according to manager Arsene Wenger.

Arteta doesn't hold a lot of fantasy value even when he's fully fit, though he could be looking at an extended run if Coquelin's injury is as serious as the club believes it could be. Then again, that depends on the severity of his own ailment.

Arteta (ankle) will be due back after the international break.

The 33-year-old picked up the injury in training ahead of the team's match against Everton and is yet another blow to the team's midfield depth. While at full health, Arsenal have one of the deepest midfields, thanks to injuries to Aaron Ramsey, Jack Wilshere, Tomas Rosicky, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Theo Walcott along with Arteta, Arsenal will be tested over the next few weeks until these players start returning.

Arteta (quad) is back in training and could be available to play Saturday against Watford, manager Arsene Wenger said Wednesday.

With Francis Coquelin and a host of other midfielders fit after the international break, Arteta will find it tough to get enough playing time to make himself fantasy worthy in even the deepest formats.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Arteta (quad) was ruled out of Sunday's fixture against Manchester United in Friday's press conference by manager Arsene Wenger.

Arteta is one of the more polarizing figures to the Arsenal fan base, but he does provide cover for Francis Coquelin as a physical holding midfielder. Without Arteta, it will force manager Arsene Wenger to get creative with whom he puts in to shield the back line.
