Agbonlahor suffered a leg injury during Tuesday's friendly against Molineux, and he could miss the Premier League season opener Aug. 8 against Bournemouth, the Birmingham Mail reports.

Agbonlahor was a solid second fiddle to Christian Benteke last season, as Villa staved off relegation, but with the Belgian striker sold to Liverpool this summer, Agbonlahor will surely have to take on a bigger part of the scoring load. While he is likely to take more shots, a vast increase in fantasy production is unlikely.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Agbonlahor (hamstring) returned to full training this week and will be available for Saturday's match against West Ham. "Gabby will get some game-time," manager Tim Sherwood said. "Whether it is from the start remains to be seen. But he will get game-time on Saturday."

Agbonlahor has missed three Premier League matches due to the ailment, which came at a tough time, as he and Christian Benteke were linking up well together. West Ham have really struggled of late, and with Villa fighting to avoid relegation, it wouldn't be surprising if Agbonlahor was given the start to help get the Villains in front early.

Aston Villa manager Paul Lambert confirmed that the team would appeal the suspension given to Agbonlahor after receiving a red card against Manchester United, reports the Daily Mail.

Agbonlahor collided with Ashley Young in what could have been considered a 50-50 challenge. Young appeared to be injured in the incident, but returned to the match as Agbonlahor was sent off.

Agbonlahor was assessed a straight red card for a questionable challenge on Manchester United's Ashley Young during Saturday's 1-1 draw.

Agbonlahor will now miss the next three matches and will be eligible to return Jan. 10 against Leicester City.

Agbonlahor put away his third goal of the Premier League season against Southampton on Monday.

Agbonlahor is the main goal-scoring threat with Christian Benteke (suspension) out of the lineup, as Monday proves. Benteke won't return until Dec. 2, so Agbonlahor will likely get an abundance of opportunities against Burnley on Saturday.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Agbonlahor took four shots Saturday but he ultimately never connected as Aston Villa drew to a 0-0 tie with West Ham.

Agbonlahor will likely see more opportunities to shoot with the ongoing suspension of Christian Benteke. Considering that Benteke isn't eligible to return until Dec. 2, Agbonlahor will have two more opportunities against Southampton and Burnley with increased looks.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Agbonlahor was forced to miss Saturday's match against Manchester City with an illness that he came down with right before kickoff, the Express and Star reports.

Agbonlahor will have plenty of time to get over his illness since the international break will allow him to rest until Oct. 18 when Villa faces Everton in Premier League play. The 27-year-old has scored two goals on the season and will be a threat to Everton if he's ultimately deemed fit ahead of the match.

Agbonlahor signed a new four-year contract with Aston Villa after working on an extension the past few weeks, reports Sky Sports.

Agbonlahor joined Villa in 1994, and said that he has only ever wanted to play for Villa. He made his first-team debut for the side in 2006.
