Fernandinho tallied an assist and was issued a yellow card in Sunday's 2-2 draw with Arsenal.

The holding midfielder has found his name on the scoresheet twice in the past four matches after not tallying an assist prior to that since Oct. 3, 2015. Days past his 31st birthday, he's shown good durability, playing in 49 matches across all comps to this point; however, with Pep Guardiola coming in next season, City is due for a major roster overhaul, which could leave the Brazilian in the lurch.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Fernandinho took a shot off the post and made one dribble and three fouls in the Saturday's 4-0 win over Bournemouth.

Fernandinho was very close to putting his name on the scoreboard but woodwork prevented that from happening. The midfielder is putting together a very solid campaign. Multiple injuries in City midfield throughout the whole season have allowed him to register 28 appearances in which he's scored two goals and one assist. With that being said, though, his holding midfield role and six yellow cards are limiting his fantasy upside.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Fernandinho (hamstring) is available off the bench Saturday against West Ham.

Fernandinho has missed the last two Premier League matches due to the injury, and while he's fit enough for the bench, he makes for a weak fantasy option as Fabian Delph starts ahead of him.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Fernandinho (hamstring) is available for Saturday's match against West Ham.

The central midfielder has missed the past two matches thanks to a hamstring concern, but has worked out with the squad and is available for selection. While it's unclear as to whether he can go for the full-90 or if he will start, his return is a boon to City, who have been struck with a plethora of injuries, will welcome back their first-choice holding midfielder.

Fernandinho (hamstring) is out against Crystal Palace on Saturday.

The central midfielder has missed the past two matches as he works through this injury. Manager Manuel Pellegrini did not give a timetable for his return, but he could be back as early as next week when City takes on West Ham.

Fernandinho (knock) has been ruled out for Wednesday's match against Everton.

Fernandinho isn't a big fantasy contributor in most formats, and he could be replaced by either Fabian Delph or Fernando.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Fernandinho tallied an assist and was issued a yellow card in Saturday's 6-1 victory over Newcastle.

Fernandinho took a little while to warm up to the game—like many of his teammates—but once he did, he was excellent. The 30-year-old Brazilian has two goals and an assist this season. Discipline could soon be a problem as he's picked up four yellow cards in eight matches and is one away from a suspension.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Fernandinho scored a goal on his only shot attempt and picked up a yellow card in Sunday's 3-0 victory over Chelsea.

Fernandinho was cautioned for a tough challenge on Diego Costa in the waning minutes of the first half, but acquitted himself nicely, scoring the third goal of the match for City. Known more for providing a physical presence in the middle of the park than being a goal scoring threat, the goal was certainly a boon to owners of the 30-year-old, though this isn't necessarily indicative of a big scoring year for the Brazilian.
