Toure got off three shots and recorded an assist in a 2-0 win over Everton on Sunday.

Toure was dangerous all match long and was really the catalyst for the offense playing a central-midfield role. After much speculation of him moving in the summer, it appears he's back to elite form and ready to contribute to Man City's success all season long. Look for him to put in another strong performance against Watford next Saturday.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Toure (groin) played the full 90 minutes and added his second assist of the season while keeping a clean sheet and picked up a yellow card in Sunday's 3-0 victory over Chelsea.

Toure lent a hand on Sergio Aguero's first half strike to put City up 1-0, which would've been enough to secure the victory. With a groin injury bothering him throughout the course of the week, manager Manuel Pellegrini assured he'd be fit for this game, and he was everything City needed him to be and then some. With a goal and two assists in the first two games, the 32-year-old already looks in far better form than he did last season.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Toure (groin) is starting Sunday against Chelsea.

Toure had a dream season debut Monday against West Brom, bagging two goals (one was later awarded to David Silva), but he came up lame with a minor groin issue. Manager Manuel Pellegrini said he didn't think it was serious, and that appears to be the case with Toure right back in the starting lineup against a tough Chelsea defense.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Toure (groin) has been declared fit to play Sunday against Chelsea.

Toure scored a wonderful goal in the opener on Monday against West Brom, though an earlier goal was later overturned to be given to David Silva. He came off with the groin issue, but manager Manuel Pellegrini confirmed Friday that Toure is healthy enough to play, and given how well he's playing, he'll certainly be expected to start.

Toure is dealing with a slight groin injury, but he is still expected to play Sunday against Chelsea, The Guardian reports.

Toure was brilliant in Man City's opener Monday against West Brom, scoring two of their three goals. He continues to be a focal point of the City attack, one that includes a number of valuable fantasy pieces.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Toure scored on both of his shot attempts during Manchester City's 3-0 win over West Brom on Monday.

Toure was easily the best player on the field Monday, and he reminded fantasy owners that he can still put up a big score despite being surrounded by players like David Silva, Raheem Sterling, Wilfried Bony and Sergio Aguero. Toure had a bit of a down year last season because of his run at the World Cup with Ivory Coast and then the Africa Cup of Nations, but he looks rested and dangerous early this season.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Toure is starting Monday against West Brom.

Toure's head issue was never expected to keep him out of Monday's match, and he'll slot right into the starting lineup for City's first league match of the season. City have tremendous weapons in front of Toure, so while he's a solid goal scorer himself, he could be a better distributor this season too.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Toure (head) was not listed among the injured players in manager Manuel Pellegrini's Friday press conference, indicating he is fit for Monday's game against West Brom.

The Baggies have been significantly better defensively ever since Tony Pulis took over, but City have so many weapons on the field that Toure could still make a big fantasy impact if he starts.
