Taarabt has been harshly criticized by QPR manager Harry Redknapp for being out of shape, West London Sport reports.

Despite his disappointment in Taarabt's unwillingness to buckle down and get fit, Redknapp believes the Moroccan could be a valuable asset this season, as the newly promoted Premier League club is in need of a playmaker in the number 10 role. Taarabt has the qualities to fill that void and did impress during a loan spell at AC Milan last season, but it's unclear how committed he truly is to QPR.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Taarabt, who was starting in place of the injured Mario Balotelli (shoulder), scored in the 12th minute of Sunday's win over Sampdoria.

Taarabt, who joined Milan from Fulham on loan for the rest of the season, has now scored twice in his three Serie A appearances this season. Milan have the option to purchase Taarabt at the conclusion of the season, and if he continues to perform this way, they very well may hold onto the Moroccan international.

Taarabt has officially signed with AC Milan. He was previously being loaned to Fulham by Queens Park Rangers through the end of the season. The deal will bring Taarabt to AC Milan until the end of the season, and both sides hope to make the move permanent in the summer.

Taarabt was seeing very little playing time in recent Fulham matches as he has failed to live up to the Cottagers' expectations this season. His move to AC Milan will hopefully provide him with a new opportunity to return to the level of play he reached with Queens Park Rangers a few years ago.

Taarabt starts up front with Dimitar Berbatov, who was able to pass a late fitness test himself due to a groin injury.

Taarabt faces a late fitness test ahead of Wednesday's match against West Ham after picking up a knock, the Mirror reports.

Taarabt has recently started in place of the injured Dimitar Berbatov, who is also set for a late fitness test. Neither has great upside, although Wednesday's match against West Ham is at least intriguing.

Taarabt assisted on Kieran Richardson's goal in the 50th minute of Saturday's 2-4 loss to Manchester City. Taarabt got the start in place of Dimitar Berbatov (groin) and finished the match with five shots and four on target.

Taarabt's assist was his first contribution of the season to Fulham's score line. If he continues to play for Berbatov, he may have decent fantasy value if he can continue to put up shot totals like Saturday.

Taarabt will not be welcomed back to QPR once his season long loan with Fulham is complete, according to QPR manager, Harry Redknapp's remarks in London24.

Taarabt has seen his playing time fluxuate this season with Fulham. While on the pitch, he does have the ability to provide some decent fantasy productivity. However, he has worn out his welcome with QPR and must be careful not to do the same now that Fulham look to be in a similar situation this early in the season.

Taarabt was in uniform but did not see time on the pitch for Fulham's 1-1 draw against West Bromwich Albion on Saturday.

This was the first time all season Taarabt did not get on the pitch. However, his playing time has decreased each match since the first week of the season.
