Delph (calf) is starting Saturday against Leicester City.

Delph was held out of City's midweek match against Sunderland after taking a kick to the calf, but he'll slot back into the starting lineup alongside Fernandinho, as Yaya Toure moves up into the No. 10 role.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Delph has been ruled out for Tuesday's match against Sunderland because of a mild calf injury. "It's just a kick in Fabian's calf," manager Manuel Pellegrini said. "It's not a serious injury. We have to play again on Saturday so I don't want to take the risk."

Delph hasn't provided much fantasy value this season, as he continues to compete for playing time with Fernandinho and Fernando in the holding midfield spots alongside Yaya Toure.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Delph scored a goal on two shots (one on target) in Saturday's 4-0 victory over Crystal Palace.

Not typically much of a goal scorer and having struggled through injuries this season, Delph played in all 90 minutes for the first time in the Premier League this season and scored his second goal of the season. Since coming over from Aston Villa, he's found playing time difficult to come by thanks to a crowded midfield, but has shown a good deal of quality in the past and could get into a rhythm if given more chances to play.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Delph (knock) is not in the 18-man squad to face Watford on Saturday.

With Yaya Toure, Fernandinho and Fernando all fit, Delph wasn't likely to get a full 90 minutes anyway.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Delph has recovered from a slight knock and is available for Saturday's match against Watford.

Man City have considerable depth in the midfield, and everyone of note is fit, so Delph could find regular playing time hard to come by even with the recovery.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Delph scored a goal in Saturday's 3-1 victory over Southampton.

Delph has seen limited run this season due to injury concerns and the lack of a true place for him in the team. But with a variety of knocks and bruises amidst the team, Delph got his first chance in the starting XI in a City kit and took full advantage. The goal was Delph's first for City across all competitions and his first goal in Premier League play since Mar. 15, 2014 when he played for Aston Villa.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Delph (knock) is available off the bench Saturday against Liverpool.

Delph's knock was never considered serious, but he's still unable to break into the starting XI, which will see Fernando and Yaya Toure at the back of the midfield Saturday.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Delph launched a shot off target and picked up a midfield clean sheet in 13 minutes of play as a sub in the Manchester City draw with Aston Villa on Sunday.

The ex-Villa man returned to action after his hamstring injury in the 77-th minute under the excessive boos from the local fans. This was his only fourth appearance this season for a total of 33 minutes. His presence Sunday was unnoticed and from here on it would only be an uphill battle for him to even make the match squads with City midfield, supposedly, fully healthy after the international break.
