Kolarov, starting for the first time since Nov. 2, picked up an assist on one of David Silva's goals during Manchester City's 3-0 win over Crystal Palace on Saturday.

Kolarov missed significant time with a calf injury, but got the start Saturday in place of Gael Clichy, who has also been playing well recently. Kolarov is a solid fantasy contributor when he plays, but he doesn't get nearly enough consistent playing time to rely on in many season-long formats.

Aleksander Kolarov: Past News Updates   ( ▲ View most recent update )

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Kolarov (calf) was available for Saturday's Premier League match against Everton, though he went unused.

Kolarov had been sidelined for a month with a calf injury, but now that he's fit again, he could feature as soon as Tuesday against Roma in the Champions League.

Kolarov (calf) has been ruled out for Sunday's match against Southampton.

Kolarov suffered the injury Nov. 2 in warmups before the Manchester derby and was expected to miss at least one month, a time frame that has already passed. His next opportunity to play will come Wednesday against Sunderland.

Kolarov is expected to miss at least one month after suffering a calf injury in warmups before last Sunday's Manchester derby, the Manchester Evening News reports.

Gael Clichy replaced Kolarov on Sunday, picking up an assist on Sergio Aguero's match winner, and he figures to maintain his spot in the starting XI for as long as Kolarov is out.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Kolarov picked up an injury during warmups ahead of Sunday's match against Manchester United and will be replaced by Gael Clichy.

A tough blow for fantasy owners, who likely don't have enough time to get a replacement in. It's unclear what the injury is, with manager Manuel Pellegrini likely to disclose it after the match.

Kolarov took four shots (zero on goal) and picked up a yellow card during Manchester City's 2-0 win over Aston Villa on Saturday.

Kolarov, who continues to battle with Gael Clichy and Bacary Sagna for playing time, registered his first clean sheet of the season after the win. While he has plenty of fantasy upside when he plays, his inconsistent playing time makes him a rather limited fantasy contributor in most formats.

Kolarov came on for Fernandinho in the 77th minute and then assisted on Martin Demichelis' 83rd-minute goal during Manchester City's 2-2 draw with Arsenal on Saturday.

Kolarov's corner went right to Demichelis, who headed in the equalizer for City. Kolarov is a very sold fantasy producer when he plays, but his starts are very inconsistent, which makes him an unreliable fantasy play.

Kolarov started and played all 90 minutes of Manchester City's 2-0 win over Newcastle, registering his first clean sheet of the season, although he did pick up a yellow card.

Kolarov wasn't too active on the attack, but still managed to give fantasy owners a clean sheet in his first start of the season. Manager Manuel Pellegrini moved Kolarov in-and-out of the starting XI last season, but with a strong defensive performance Sunday, he showed why he belongs there more often.
