Rodriguez (foot) is available off the bench Sunday versus Leicester.

While it is a relief to see the Rodriguez's long awaited return is finally a fact, without having played since October he probably won't be a fantasy factor in the immediate future, at the least.

Rodriguez (foot) will feature in the U21 formation of the team on Monday, according to manager Ronald Koeman. "That's always important, to have a good feeling out of that. He is ready. He had already two weeks of training and, of course, after a long period you need game time and minutes and it's good to have that first in the under-21s and then we will see what happens after next Monday”, Koeman said.

Rodriguez hasn't played since Oct. 17 and has no Premier League goals in eight games. With lengthy absences over the past two seasons he'll be eased into action and will hardly have a great fantasy upside for a while, if any this season.

Rodriguez (foot) didn't make the 18-man squad Saturday versus Sunderland.

Rodriguez has struggled to stay healthy all season long. He's barely had eight Premier League appearances, thus far, and last played Oct 17. Even when he returns he'll need a longer period to gain full fitness, which will limit his fantasy value in the near future.

Rodriguez remains out with his foot injury.

Rodriguez hasn't played since Oct. 17 and despite a brace against MK Dons in the Capital One Cup, didn't score a goal in eight Premier League matches. After missing the entirety of the 2014-15 season with a torn ACL, this prolonged absence from the squad has been another disappointing chapter in his career. He's set to return in early March.

Rodriguez will miss Tuesday's match versus Arsenal, but he is nearing a return to training as he recovers from a foot injury.

The oft-injured 26-year-old has not played since mid-October after undergoing surgery, but he is finally nearing the end of his latest recovery. While Rodriguez was once one of the bright young stars of the English game, he has taken a backseat to the likes of Shane Long, Graziano Pelle and the newly-acquired Charlie Austin, making him unlikely to contribute much for fantasy owners for the foreseeable future.

Rodriguez could return to training as early as late December as he continues to recover from foot surgery, the Southern Daily Echo reports.

The 26-year-old has not played since experiencing nerve damage in his foot in mid-October, but he continues to inch closer to a return. Once he is fully fit, Rodriguez will have to fight for regular playing time, as he had only made two league starts prior to suffering the injury.

Rodriguez is expected to be sidelined for seven-to-eight weeks after undergoing foot surgery Tuesday, manager Ronald Koeman confirmed Thursday.

Rodriguez has found regular playing time hard to come by this season, as Graziano Pelle has a firm hold on the starting striker job. Unfortunately for Rodriguez, Pelle is suspended for this weekend's match against Manchester City, so he may have even gotten a fill-in start. Instead, the Saints will go with Shane Long until Pelle returns.
