Zapata (ankle) didn't make the 20-man squad for Saturday's match against Napoli.

Manager Vincenzo Montella gave no specifics on Zapata's return timetable. However, the defender didn't have a major role last season, and unless Alessio Romagnoli moves out of the club, Zapata's fantasy upside will probably remain low.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Zapata recorded a clean sheet en route to a 1-0 win over USA in Copa America Centenario third-place game which gave Colombia the bronze medals. He finished the tournament with one goal on three shots (one on target) and a yellow card on five fouls taking his international record to 45 caps with one goal.

Zapata and the Colombian back line had an outstanding first half but put under more pressure from Team USA almost cracked a few times in the second. Strong fantasy finish for Zapata, nonetheless. The 29-year-old center back, though, wasn't able to win out a regular starting spot with AC Milan last season and didn't have much fantasy value finishing the campaign with one goal, two clean sheets and 24 tackles in 16 Serie A appearances (14 starts).

Zapata and the Colombian defensive line recorded a clean sheet against Peru on Friday. Colombia ended winning the game via a penalty shootout.

Zapata was one of Colombia's best players, and his contributions were vital for Colombia, as the team kept the Peruvian attack in check. Things will get tougher in the next round as Colombia will face either Mexico or Chile in the Copa America semifinals.

Zapata scored the opening goal just eight minutes into Colombia's 2-0 win over the United States in the Copa America on Friday.

Not known for his offensive exploits, Zapata rocketed an Edwin Cardona corner into the back of the net for his first international goal. Adding in the clean sheet, and Zapata had a fantastic opening match of the tournament, though further attacking production shouldn't be expected.
