Chester was forced off early during Sunday's loss to West Ham United after his dislocated his shoulder, reports the Hull Daily Mail. It is likely the injury will require surgery and force Chester to miss two to three months.

The injury will force Chester to miss significant time but does not have much fantasy impact as the Hull City defenders do not offer many clean sheet opportunities. Chester does have two goals on the season but his low shot totals do not offer much confidence on him being able to add to that total.

Chester is expected to return to Hull City's lineup for Saturday's match at West Bromwich Albion, reports the Hull Daily Mail.

Chester will likely be slotted back into Hull City's Starting XI, but it will be tough for him to have much fantasy value as the Tigers have kept just two away clean sheets all season.

Chester picked up a yellow card at the end of the first half, but responded in the second half by scoring what wound up being the match winner in Friday's 1-3 victory.

The yellow card was Chester's fifth this season and earned the defender a suspension for Hull City's next match. He is due to return for a home match against Everton on New Year's Day.

Chester played the full 90 minutes in Saturday's 3-0 loss to Manchester United.

The Hull City defense has struggled lately and will face another tough match in Tuesday's midweek game at Everton.

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.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

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.
