Dzeko managed just one shot in a 12-minute cameo during Manchester City's 3-0 win over West Brom on Saturday.

Dzeko conceded his starting spot to Wilfried Bony, who scored one goal and went close on a couple of other chances. The two strikers have traded starts in the past few matches but Bony's performance Saturday could move him ahead in the pecking order, in which case Dzeko's fantasy value will take a significant hit.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Dzeko started and scored in the 25th minute of Manchester City's 2-1 loss to Liverpool at Anfield on Sunday.

Despite pressure from Wilfried Bony for playing time, Dzeko has responded with goals in back-to-back Premier League matches. He now totes four goals on the season, though it seems like only a matter of time before Bony supplants him in the starting lineup.

Dzeko is in the starting lineup Sunday at Anfield.

After the dominant performance against Newcastle last weekend, Dzeko will get another start even though he looked a big sluggish against Barcelona on Tuesday. Sergio Aguero will partner him up front.

Dzeko had a game-high five shots and scored in the 21st minute of Manchester City's 5-0 rout of Newcastle on Saturday.

Dzeko has been moving in-and-out of the starting lineup this season and it will only get worse now than Wilfried Bony has made his club debut. Dzeko's goal was just his third this season in 17 Premier League appearances, and he remains a fairly speculative fantasy play.

Following a series of games that hosted Dzeko coming on late as sub, he will get the start up front alongside Sergio Aguero on Saturday against Hull City.

Any forward for Manchester City against the likes of Hull is dangerous, Dzeko is an excellent plug-and-play.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Dzeko was not in the 18-man squad for Saturday's match against Everton, and he will have to wait until next Sunday's match against Arsenal to return from his calf injury.

With Stevan Jovetic and Sergio Aguero fit, there is little reason to rush Dzeko back.

Dzeko (calf) could feature Saturday against Everton, the Manchester Evening News reports.

With Stevan Jovetic healthy and Sergio Aguero (knee) also expected back Saturday, Dzeko isn't likely to see significant playing time upon his return.
