Silva, who was held out of Manchester City's Capital One Cup match against Bolton in midweek due to an ankle injury, picked up two assists in Saturday's 4-2 win over Hull City.

Silva has been a fairly quiet fantasy producer so far this season, as he scored in Man City's first Premier League game and hadn't been a part of any other score until Saturday's action. Nevertheless, he plays a vital role in an offense expected to score plenty of points this season, which keeps him very relevant in nearly all fantasy formats.

Silva, who was held out of Wednesday's Capital One Cup match against Sheffield Wednesday with an ankle issue, is fit for Saturday's Premier League match against Hull City, manager Manuel Pellegrini confirmed Friday.

The injury was never considered serious and was likely just a little cover to give Pellegrini a reason to sit him. Silva is expected to return to his usual spot in the starting XI, as he remains a solid fantasy option.

Silva will be held out of Manchester City's Capital One Cup match against Sheffield Wednesday on Wednesday due to an ankle issue but manager Manuel Pellegrini said he expects Silva to play in Saturday's Premier League match against Hull City.

The ankle issue is probably just an excuse to sit Silva in a game that doesn't mean much to City, allowing him some extra rest after last weekend's tough Premier League match against Chelsea.

Silva scored in the 38th minute of Manchester City's 2-0 win over Newcastle on Sunday.

Fresh off signing a new five-year contract, Silva showed the City faithful why he's worth every penny he's paid. He had seven goals and nine assists in 28 league matches last season, and if he can stay fit for the duration, he could equal or best those figures by season's end.

Silva has signed a new five-year contract with Manchester City.

Silva has been an instrumental part of City's success in recent seasons and has therefore been rewarded with a new deal. The 28-year-old attacking midfielder had seven goals and nine assists in 28 league matches last season and remains one of the most exciting players in the Premier League. The Citizens open the new campaign at Newcastle on Sunday.

Silva returned from an ankle injury to play the final 16 minutes of Manchester City's 3-2 win over Everton on Saturday.

Silva was potentially out for the rest of the season with his ankle injury, so it was a huge boost that he was able to return. He will be especially important down the stretch, with Sergio Aguero likely to miss out with a groin injury.

Silva was taken off in the 67th minute of Monday's match against West Brom, reports the Daily Mail.

The midfielder left the field with a brace on his right leg, and will be assessed on Tuesday to determine the extent of the injury. Silva has pain previously in the ankle, which kept him out of action against Sunderland last week.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Silva (ankle) is in the starting XI for Manchester City's match against West Brom on Monday.

Silva has been battling an ankle injury for the last two weeks and there was a real chance that he was going to be held out Monday. However, with Yaya Toure and Jesus Navas both sidelined with injuries, Silva will gut it out and hope to maintain City's shot at the title.
