Young suffered a hamstring injury during Thursday's Premier League match against Stoke City and manager Louis van Gaal said afterward that Young could miss "many weeks" due to the ailment.

Young continues to be listed as a midfielder in most formats despite playing mostly as a defensive wingback this season, so his fantasy production hasn't been as great. Given the numerous changes that van Gaal has made in his starting XI throughout the season, it's tough to put a thumb on exactly who will replace Young in the lineup.

Young is not expected to play Sunday against QPR after picking up a knock in training.

Louis van Gaal announced Friday that Young and defender Phil Jones (hamstring) could both miss the match, though they have ready-made replacements. Young has shown an ability to score goals throughout his career, but he's just too inconsistent to rely upon for fantasy purposes.

Young was one of three Manchester United players fined by the club for a night out after being defeated by Bayern Munich in the Champions League, reports the Daily Mail.

Young was a substitute in the 3-1 defeat, and then was pictured enjoying a night out with a few other players after the loss. Manager David Moyes pulled each player aside for discussions, and forced all involved to do extra training on their own.

Young (shoulder) is in the starting XI for Sunday's match against Chelsea.

Young has missed time recently with a shoulder injury, but has recovered well enough to return to the starting XI. United will need him to create some offense, with Robin van Persie (thigh) and Wayne Rooney (groin) both out.

Young will not play in Sunday's FA Cup tie with Swansea City after suffering a shoulder injury in last weekend's match against Tottenham. Manager David Moyes said the injury is expected to "keep him out for a time... we're not sure exactly how long yet".

Young hasn't been a regular member of the United starting XI this season, and he's scored only once in 10 appearances. His fantasy value was already pretty low and the new injury will only make it dip further.

Young came on for Adnan Januzaj in the 69th minute, and then scored in the 72nd minute of Manchester United's 3-1 win over West Ham on Saturday.

Young has hardly been a consistent player for United this season, although he has scored in back-to-back matches now, after scoring against Stoke City in the Capital One Cup last Wednesday. Nevertheless, he remains a weak fantasy option given the other midfielders at manager David Moyes' disposal.
