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.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

McCarthy (groin) was deemed "medically fit" but will have to go through late fitness test before the Swansea game on Sunday, according to manager Roberto Martinez.

McCarthy already had a full training session with the team but he hasn't played in 2016 yet and may need a little extra time to challenge a return to the starting XI. If he doesn't get the nod Muhamed Besic, who's had a nice few games, will probably pick up another start as defensive midfielder alongside Gareth Barry.

McCarthy picked up an assist on Romelu Lukaku's early goal but then came off after aggravating his previous groin injury, according to The Times.

McCarthy came off the pitch and immediately walked down the tunnel, a harrowing sign after his recent ailment. Tom Cleverley replaced him Monday and could start if McCarthy has to miss additional time.

McCarthy (groin) is starting Monday against Stoke City.

While it's great news that McCarthy is back, his holding midfield tendencies don't put him in positions with high scoring chances, which limits his upside in many fantasy formats.

McCarthy (groin) has been ruled out for Saturday's match against Newcastle.

McCarthy could return Monday against Stoke City, and while that's certainly a plus for Everton, he isn't a huge fantasy performer in most formats.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

McCarthy could return for Saturday's match versus Leicester City as he continues to recover from a groin injury.

The 25-year-old has missed the last three matches because of the injury, but he will be assessed in the lead-up to the match after running on the pitch this week. He is unlikely to start even if he is deemed fit, but a substitute appearance could be in the cards.
