Taylor (groin) won't be available for Swansea's last two matches, according to manager Francesco Guidolin.

Taylor and Ashley Williams will both miss the remainder of the campaign for Swansea on the back line. Don't expect much from the defense in a match at West Ham and against Manchester City.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Taylor was back in the starting lineup Saturday against Chelsea and helped the Swans keep a clean sheet in a 1-0 win.

Taylor hasn't seen consistent time in the past month, but provided plenty of value after getting a clean sheet against Chelsea. Swansea has a road match next weekend, but is in a favorable situation against Newcastle.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Taylor recorded a clean sheet against Norwich City on Saturday, but also added a yellow card.

Taylor has been healthy all year, but isn't as active as his similarly-priced teammate, Ashley Williams. The Swansea defense is only worth a look in home matches against weaker competition.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Taylor (suspension) will be available for Saturday's match against Stoke City.

Taylor had already made 31 Premier League starts before his suspension and it seems likely that he'll assume that same role yet again Saturday despite his recent stint off the pitch.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Taylor has been suspended for the next two matches since he received his 10th yellow card against Everton on Saturday.

Taylor won't be eligible to return for manager Garry Monk until May 2 against Stoke City in Premiere league play. This leaves Monk in a bind since Taylor was the last viable option at left-back with no obvious replacement for the next two matches.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Swansea rejected a bid greater than 3 million for Taylor from Crystal Palace, reports Sky Sports.

West Brom was thought to be one of the clubs interested in the player, but Crystal Palace jumped in line as well. The team is hoping to retain the defender who has 18 months remaining on his current contract.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Taylor notched his seventh clean sheet of the season when Swansea defeated Hull City 1-0 on Saturday.

Taylor has had a solid year for Swansea as he's been able to play in 16 games for his squad this season. On top of that, the 25-year-old has made 17 crosses this year and could be in store for an overdue assist in the near future.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Taylor has started all four Premier League games for Swansea City this season.

Taylor has been a crucial part in the defensive stability of the Swans this season as he's been a part of two clean sheets. Saturday's match with Southampton will be another opportunity for the 25-year-old to obtain his third clean sheet of the year.
