Soldado has been in form this off-season netting in multiple friendlies throughout the summer.

Soldado had a terrible end of last season, recording only two goals in his last 19 games. Emmanuel Adebayor took over the striker position once Tottenham changed managers and Soldado could never really find his footing after that. With the recent change of manager to Mauricio Pochettino, Soldado could be in line for a new start. Remember, he is just one season removed from scoring 24 goals in La Liga, so it's not out of the question to see him grab that striker role.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Soldado had a decent season statistically for Tottenham, getting six goals and five assists in 28 games, but was somewhat of a disappointment overall.

The numbers for Soldado are nothing to scoff at but he just never really seemed to find his groove at White Hart Lane. Soldado actually got off to a solid start, scoring four goals in his first nine games, but every one came from the penalty spot. As Emmanuel Adebayor's time increased, Soldado's decreased with the manager change. It will be tough to judge what comes from Soldado next season until we see what the first team looks like come matchweek 1.

Soldado returned from a hamstring injury to play 11 minutes off the bench Saturday against Fulham.

Soldado subbed on for Harry Kane, who scored his third goal in the last three games Saturday. With Emmanuel Adebayor also fit, Soldado doesn't have much upside from a fantasy perspective.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Soldado (hamstring) has returned to training ahead of Saturday's match against Fulham, the club's official web site reports.

With Emmanuel Adebayor and Harry Kane both fit, it's unlikely that Soldado will start this weekend, and could even be left on the bench for the entire match. It's been a lost season for the striker, who has greatly failed to live up to the club record fee that Spurs paid to bring him over from Valencia last summer.

Soldado has been ruled out of Monday's match against Sunderland due to the hamstring injury he suffered last weekend against Liverpool, Spurs' official web site reports.

With Emmanuel Adebayor back to fitness following a heel injury, Tottenham have no reason to push Soldado back quickly. He wasn't getting regular starts anyway with a healthy Adebayor, so fantasy owners who hoped Soldado could find his former form will have to keep waiting.

Soldado suffered a hamstring injury during Sunday's loss at Liverpool, the Tottenham Journal reports.

Soldado, who was starting for the injured Emmanuel Adebayor (heel), will be assessed in the coming days, which should give clarity as to whether he will be available for next Monday's match against Sunderland. However, if Adebayor can get back to fitness, Soldado will probably return to the bench anyway.

Soldado scored in the 28th minute of Tottenham's 1-0 win over Cardiff City on Sunday.

Soldado had lost his place in the starting XI to Emmanuel Adebayor, but manager Tim Sherwood decided to play both of them up front Sunday. It seemed to work, as Soldado found the back of the net in a Premier League game for the first time since December 29, and only the second time since October 27. It's been a very disappointing season for Soldado, who still has a little time to show his worth after Spurs spent 26 million to bring him from Valencia last summer.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Soldado is in the starting XI for Saturday's match at Hull City.

Soldado was unused in Spurs' last two Premier League matches, but he'll get the start Saturday and play up front with Emmanuel Adebayor. Tottenham are still waiting on Soldado to get going, as a vast majority of his five goals this year have come from the penalty spot.
