Mikel (foot) was available off the bench but he did not play in Chelsea's 2-1 win over Liverpool on Saturday.

Mikel was dealing with a foot injury, but he was at least fit enough to be an option as a sub. He doesn't get nearly enough playing time to warrant much fantasy value in most leagues.

He won't have to do it alone, but Edin Dzeko will likely be a major contributor if Bosnia and Herzegovina can advance to the knockout stage.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Mikel came on for Willian in the 75th minute and assisted on Diego Costa's 90th minute goal during Chelsea's 6-3 rout of Everton on Saturday.

Mikel isn't a regular member of the starting XI and his time off the bench is incredibly inconsistent, making him a fairly weak fantasy option despite the assist Saturday.

Mikel will not play Saturday against Stoke City, with manager Jose Mourinho simply stating that he "is injured," the Daily Express reports.

Mikel isn't much of a contributor anyway, so there are likely few fantasy owners affected by the news.

Mikel (knock) came on for Andre Schurrle in the 67th minute of Chelsea's 1-1 draw with Galatasaray in the first leg of their Champions League round of 16 tie.

Mikel suffered a knock recently and had to pass a late fitness test to make the match, but it appears he has put the slight injury behind him. Despite the improvement, he remains a fairly weak fantasy option given his extremely inconsistent playing time.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Mikel (knock) is in the squad for Chelsea's Champions League tie against Galatasaray on Wednesday, reports.

Mikel isn't a consistent starter for the Blues and even with injury doubts (David Luiz and Oscar), he isn't likely to play 90 in Turkey.
