Kone got the start Saturday and rewarded his manager with an assist in a 3-0 win over Southampton.

Kone made a beautiful cross that was finished off by Romelu Lukaku for the opening goal. He has now picked up two assists and a goal in the first two games of the season. Kone will likely stick in the starting XI for next week's match against Man City until results show otherwise.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Kone is starting Saturday against Southampton.

Kone came off the bench in the opener but finished with a goal and an assist, so manager Roberto Martinez will reward him with a rare start. Last weekend's display was quite rare, so expecting any kind of repeat performance may be wishful thinking.

Kone was a super sub on Saturday, recording a goal and an assist after coming on for Brendan Galloway in the 63rd minute of the 2-2 draw with Watford.

Kone has always been a favorite of manager Roberto Martinez since their days at Wigan and this will likely be his role all season long. He is tough to own for fantasy purposes simply due to his role as a reserve, but if Romelu Lukaku misses any significant time, Kone could be a nice addition.

Kone got the start for the injured Romelu Lukaku (hamstring) Saturday and grabbed an assist in the 1-0 win over Burnley.

Kone is a favorite of manager Roberto Martinez and it's nice to see him playing well after dealing with serious knee injuries the past two seasons. unfortunately for Kone, hr will likely return to a bench role next Sunday against Manchester United as Lukaku is due back very soon.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Kone (knee) is starting Saturday against Southampton.

Kone was deemed fit to play Thursday, but he'll get the start in place of Romelu Lukaku, who is out with a hamstring injury. While Kone will get a solid amount of playing time, it's a tough matchup against a very strong defense.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Kone is available for Saturday's match against Southampton after recovering from a knee injury.

Kone could be headed for a start, with Romelu Lukaku continuing to deal with a hamstring injury. Unfortunately, it would come against one of the strongest defensive squads in the Premier League, making him a huge dart-throw in most formats.

Kone got a rare start and was able to score in the 3-2 loss to Newcastle Sunday.

Lukaku had started the past four matches in a two week span, so the start for Kone was no surprise. Kone was subbed off in the 72nd minute for Lukaku, so he clearly made the best use of his limited time. The blonde Nigerian had a fine game, getting off three shots and completing nearly 96% of his passes along with snatching the opening goal. Everton may look to start the striker again come next Thursday as Lukaku has been in a but of a slump as of late.

Kone continues to work his way back form a torn ACL, but manager Roberto Martinez said Tuesday he still needs to work on his fitness. "Arouna has already been working with the team and sometimes joining in with 11-a-side situations, which is very promising," Martinez said. "But he still needs a bit of time to adapt to the physicality and the needs of the competition."

Kone missed most of last season with a torn ACL and even when he does return, he isn't likely to see much playing time in Premier League matches ahead of Romelu Lukaku.
