Soldado got his first start of the season Saturday and got an assist in the 4-1 loss to Man City.

As Emmanuel Adebayor has struggled recently, the start from Soldado seemed inevitable. The offense has struggled as of late, so maybe Soldado can be the spark they need. It remains to be seen if he continues to start, but monitor the situation as he has proven to be a fantastic goal scorer in the past, though not in the Premier League.

Soldado was used as a sub in the 1-0 loss to West Brom Sunday and got off one shot.

Soldado has yet to find his spot on the team yet, but may find some playing time if main striker Adebayor continues to struggle. Look for Soldado to get a start in the near future to see if he can provide some goals for the lackluster offense.

Soldado is unlikely to play Saturday at Sunderland due to an going neck injury. "Robbie is a doubt, he continues to have the problem with his neck," manager Mauricio Pochettino said Thursday.

Regardless of his fitness, Soldado's fantasy value is very limited, as Emmanuel Adebayor starts up front, with Harry Kane also getting time ahead of Soldado these days.

Soldado was not in the 18-man squad that faced Liverpool on Sunday.

Even though he's reportedly dealing with a neck injury, Soldado sits behind Emmanuel Adebayor and Harry Kane on the depth chart, so it wouldn't be surprising if Spurs look to unload Soldado before the transfer window closes.

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.

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.
