RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Vlaar (calf) is available off the bench for Saturday's match against Manchester United.

Vlaar has been out since Feb. 21 due to the ailment, and while he's on the bench Saturday, he wasn't likely a great fantasy play anyway.

Manager Tim Sherwood confirmed Thursday that Vlaar (calf) is back in training and could return for Saturday's match against Manchester United.

It's not an ideal matchup to return to from a fantasy perspective, though it's certainly good that Vlaar is fit again. If he doesn't start against United, he could get back in the lineup Wednesday against QPR.

Vlaar (calf) has deemed himself fit for Saturday's match against Manchester United, the Birmingham Mail reports.

Vlaar's return is a big boost for Villa, who will likely be without Jores Okore (knee), Nathan Baker (knee) and Philippe Senderos (calf). The matchup is a tough one, but Villa have a double gameweek, playing QPR on Tuesday as well.

Manager Tim Sherwood said Thursday that Vlaar (calf) will not play Saturday against Swansea City, but is hoping to return April 4 against Manchester United.

Vlaar has not played since Feb. 21 against Stoke City due to the ailment, and while there is a hope he'll be able to return after the international break, he has already been out far longer than initially expected.

Vlaar will have a late fitness test on his calf to determine his availability for Saturday's match against Sunderland, manager Tim Sherwood said Thursday.

Sherwood didn't sound overly confident in Vlaar passing fit, but he's giving the Dutchman every opportunity to do so. It's a decent matchup from a fantasy perspective, though with Sherwood focusing on the attack, Villa's defensive capabilities have struggled, making clean sheets harder to come by.

Vlaar (groin) will have a late fitness test before Saturday's FA Cup match against West Brom, manager Tim Sherwood said Thursday.

Vlaar missed Tuesday's match against West Brom with the ailment, and it remains unclear if he'll start right away if he's deemed fit.

Vlaar has expressed his desire to seek options with other teams besides Aston Villa at the end of the season, according to the Daily Mail.

The defender's current contract expires at the end of the season. Vlaar also just returned from injury against Leicester, and new manager Tim Sherwood would like to convince the veteran to stay.
