McCarthy has began running outside as he attempts to return from groin surgery.

McCarthy's initial injury outlook was three weeks, which means he is on track to return to training during that allotted time. Gareth Barry and Idrissa Gueye are well cemented as Everton's current centre midfielders. Upon McCarthy's return, he will most likely have to wait to see starting minutes.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

McCarthy went under the knife to repair a groin injury Thursday.

McCarthy will miss at least three weeks while he recovers from surgery. Kevin Mirallas, Ross Barkley, Gareth Barry, and Idrissa Gueye could feature in Everton's defensive and attacking midfield.

Celtic have ignited an effort to bring McCarthy to the club on loan after securing entry into the Champions League, according to the Daily Mail.

Many clubs have shown interest in the Everton midfielder including Newcastle, Sunderland, and Crystal Palace. McCarthy has been slightly unsettled under manager Ronald Koeman, which could entice Everton to work on an arrangement with the Scottish side.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

McCarthy started all four Republic of Ireland matches during Euro 2016, tallying one cross and one yellow card on nine fouls. He extended his international record to 39 caps with no goals. Ireland lost 2-1 out to France and were knocked out of the tournament at the round of 16.

McCarthy had a solid campaign with Everton last season. The 25-year-old holding midfielder managed to find some production with two goals and two assists in 29 Premier League starts, though, he typically doesn't hold much fantasy upside due to his primarily defensive functions.

McCarthy has been dealing with a groin issue, but was labeled fit and in Ireland's starting lineup against Sweden on Monday.

In his defensive midfield role, McCarthy's fantasy value will be limited, especially against a more defensive team like Sweden.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

McCarthy is suspended for Saturday's match against Southampton after picking up two red cards during Wednesday's fixture with Crystal Palace.

McCarthy's role as a holding midfielder limits his fantasy upside in most formats, so his absence isn't likely to affect many fantasy rosters. Muhamed Besic could move into the starting XI in McCarthy's absence.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

McCarthy scored in Everton's 1-1 draw away to Watford on Saturday.

James McCarthy would be a dream acquisition for a fantasy manager if he could just compliment his undoubted defensive, not to mention passing, ability and foray into the opponents box from the time to time. His goal in Saturday was his first of the season and until he starts adding to this tally, perhaps, it is best to stay away.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

McCarthy (groin) is not in the 18-man squad to face Swansea on Sunday.

McCarthy has apparently recovered from his groin injury but isn't match fit enough to participate. Muhamed Besic will get the start in his place.
