Agbonlahor took one shot (one on target) in Friday's defeat to Manchester United.

The speedy forward had trouble finding room to operate against the suddenly stout United back four. He had his best opportunity of the game comfortably saved by Sergio Romero with his head and another opportunity nullified by an offsides call. After six goals in 35 appearances last season, the 28-year-old speedster will try to fill the void left by the departure of Christian Benteke in the goal scoring department.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Agbonlahor (ankle) is starting Saturday against Bournemouth.

Agbonlahor suffered the injury last Tuesday, but he's recovered in time to lead the line with Scott Sinclair on Saturday. There will be plenty of pressure on Agbonlahor to score this season after the club sold Christian Benteke to Liverpool, though a double-digit goal output seems unlikely.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

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.

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.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

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.

November 24, 2014

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

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.

November 8, 2014

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.
