Chester is eligible to return to Hull City's lineup for Monday's match against West Ham United after serving his one-match suspension for receiving a red card, reports The Daily Mail.

Chester is expected to return to the lineup now that he has served his suspension. After scoring a goal on two shot attempts in the team's first match, he was a sleeper pick the next week before picking up the red card. While the low number of goals expected from Chester this season make it difficult to predict when they will happen, he will certainly be a fixture in the Hull City Starting XI and can be a valuable fantasy option when the match ups dictate a good chance for a clean sheet.

Chester was given a red card in the 14th minute of Saturday's 1-1 draw with Stoke City after a hard foul on Stoke's Glenn Whelan.

A red card was unexpected as it was the first of Chester's career. Because of the booking, Chester will miss Hull City's next match.

Chester headed in the only goal of the match in Hull City's 1-0 victory over Queens Park Rangers on Saturday. In addition to the goal, Chester helped the Tigers earn their first clean sheet of the season.

Chester made 22 league starts last season despite dealing with hamstring issues. He should be a regular in Hull City's back line but will have limited fantasy value as the Tigers are not expected to keep many clean sheets this season.

Chester was subbed off late in the first half of Saturday's match against Aston Villa with a hamstring injury, an he will undergo further evaluation, the Hull Daily Mail reports. Chester could miss the final two matches of the Premier League season and the FA Cup final.

The hamstring injury is a recurrence of a similar injury that forced him to miss 10 weeks earlier in the season. With matches against Manchester United and Everton to finish the season, even if he is healthy, Chester would have very little fantasy value to finish out the season.

Chester (hamstring) was an unused substitute for Hull City's FA Cup draw with Brighton on Monday.

Chester, who suffered a hamstring injury back on Jan. 18, was expected to miss eight weeks of action due, although it appears he will be able to make it back on the pitch before then.

Chester's scans on his injured hamstring revealed damage that could take up to eight weeks to heal, the Hull Daily Mail reports. The Tigers defender is expected to miss at least the next six Premier League matches.

Chester missed time earlier in the season with an injury to the same hamstring. With just one goal this season, much of Chester's value is tied to Hull City's ability to keep a clean sheet. With Chester out, this also impacts goalkeeper Allan McGregor as Chester was a key man in the Hull City defense.

Chester was forced to leave Saturday's match against Norwich City in the 15th minute with a hamstring injury, Club Call reports. No time table has been set up for his return.

The hamstring injury Chester picked up is on the same leg that forced him to miss two months earlier in the season. His offense has been limited this season, as the defender has just one goal scored. When healthy, his value will remain tied to Hull City's ability to keep a clean sheet.
