Colback picked up an assist during Newcastle's 3-0 win over Hull City on Saturday.

Colback now has two goals and two assists in his last five Premier League matches, though the Newcastle attack is still spread out enough that he makes for an inconsistent fantasy option.

Colback has recovered from a knock, and will be in the squad for Newcastle's trip to Southampton on Saturday.

Colback was sidelined for England during the international break, but should be fit when Newcastle take on Southampton on Saturday. Colback doesn't provide much fantasy value directly, but his presence is important to Newcastle maintaining possession, and breaking up play.

Colback is still dealing with an ankle injury that he suffered against Crystal Palace and has consequentially decided to bow out of England's match with Switzerland on Monday, the Daily Mail reports.

Colback managed to play all 90 minutes of the Crystal Palace match but he was kicked in the ankle and felt the effects afterwards. Even though he'll take a seat Monday, his injury still seems minor in nature and he'll have a chance to suit up for Newcastle when they face Southampton on Sept. 13.

Colback shook off a mid-week knock and played all 90 minutes of Newcastle's 3-3 draw with Crystal Palace on Saturday.

Colback has settled in on the other side of Tyne-Wear and has quickly become manager Alan Pardew's rock in midfield. Although the 24-year-old didn't rack up many fantasy relevant points, he managed two key passes and a stellar 91 percent passing accuracy.

Colback played a full 90 minutes in Newcastle's 0-2 loss to Manchester City on Sunday.

Colback looked good for large portions of the match and provided the Toon midfield with an aggressiveness they lacked last season. Unfortunately for fantasy owners, Colback's defensive position and lack of opportunities in front of goal don't translate into worthwhile scores.

Colback has signed with Newcastle on a free transfer from local rivals Sunderland, The Chronicle Live reports.

Colback becomes Newcastle's second signing of the summer and will rack up the minutes playing in a central midfield role. The 24 year old's fantasy value is fairly limited, having only scored three goals and two assists last season for Sunderland.
