Jagielka, who had been out since late February with a hamstring injury, returned to Everton's starting XI on Saturday against Manchester City. Jagielka started the match and played 66 minutes before being subbed off in the 3-2 loss.

Jagielka will look to remain in the starting XI for Everton's final match of the season. If he does, he will have a good chance at a clean sheet as the Toffees finish up against Hull City.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Jagielka (hamstring) is expected to return to the squad for their match against Manchester City on May 3, the team reports. He is not expected to be rushed back for this Saturday's match against Southampton, despite the mounting number of injuries Everton are dealing with.

Manager Roberto Martinez has been strict on not rushing Jagielka back from his hamstring injury. His return means he will be left with matches against Manchester City and away versus Hull City before the season ends.

Jagielka was unable to play Sunday against Manchester United due to his on-going hamstring injury.

Jagielka appears to be week-to-week with the injury, which means he could be available next weekend against Southampton.

Jagielka (hamstring) is hopeful to return for Everton's match against Manchester United on April 20, reports the Daily Mail. The club is setting up a behind-closed-doors friendly match during the week to allow Jagielka to test his fitness and injured hamstring ahead of the United game.

The news confirms Jagielka will miss Everton's next two matches against Sunderland and Crystal Palace. It is unfortunate for fantasy owners as these were nice matchups for the Everton defense. In his absence, expect John Stones to continue to be called into the Starting XI.

Jagielka (hamstring) was described by Everton manager Roberto Martinez as doubtful for Sunday's match against Arsenal, reports Sky Sports. Martinez admits rushing back Jagielka from injury earlier in the season was a mistake and is trying to avoid repeating.

Jagielka has not played since Feb. 22 and it is likely to be out Sunday against Arsenal. With matches against Manchester City, Manchester United and Southampton still on the schedule, he would likely have very little fantasy value should he return for the end of the season.

Jagielka has been declared fit from his hamstring injury, but he is not guaranteed to play Tuesday at Newcastle, reports. Manager Roberto Martinez said "Phil is fully fit, it is now about making sure we're not taking any risks... We need to measure which game he will be involved in, whether it is Newcastle or Fulham on Saturday. From a medical point of view, he's fully fit."

Newcastle have struggled mightily to score goals recently, making Tuesday's match a solid clean sheet opportunity. John Stones has been starting in Jagielka's place and could do so again Tuesday, with the latter being available off the bench.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Jagielka (hamstring) has been given 50/50 odds to return for Saturday's match against Swansea City.

Jagielka has missed the last three Everton matches but will look to return at a good time for fantasy owners. With upcoming matches against Swansea City (home) and Newcastle, Fulham and Sunderland (away), he will have excellent fantasy matchups in the next couple of weeks if he is fit to return.

Jagielka, who is recovering from a hamstring injury, will not return to the Everton lineup until he is fully fit, the Daily Express reports. Manager Roberto Martinez said "whenever Phil is 100 percent he'll be able to help the team but we need to protect him a little bit and make sure he's not rushed back into playing too early, which could risk a further period out."

Martinez admitted that he rushed midfielder Ross Barkley back too quickly from a broken toe earlier this season, which hampered him in a number of games after returning. He won't make the same mistake with Jagielka, which essentially makes him an injury doubt for this weekend's match against Cardiff City.
