Toure took a shot off target and made two dribbles in 78 minutes of play in the 1-0 away win over Sunderland on Tuesday.

The Citizens continue to be unconvincing offensively away from home and that hurts their attacking players' upside. Toure had a very quiet fantasy game for his standards and he hasn't scored in over a month now. He's got five goals and five assists in 22 Premier League games and continues to carry a lot of fantasy upside, especially at home, but City are facing a rough stretch of games in February facing Leicester, Tottenham, Chelsea and Liverpool in succession.

Despite a matchup against league-leaders Leicester City, Mesut Ozil garnered a first-place vote among midfielders, but was it enough to give him the top spot in the composite ranking?

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Toure's manager Dimitri Seluk said the midfielder will consider his options this summer, reports Sky Sports.

Toure's contract with Manchester City ends in the summer of 2017. He said he has no plans to quit the team, but will be looking at what transfer possibilities are available as he enters the final year of his contract.

Toure (knock) is starting Wednesday against Everton.

Toure was held out of the weekend FA Cup match because of the minor issue, but he was deemed fit to play by manager Manuel Pellegrini on Tuesday. He'll partner with Fernando in the holding midfield, but he's always a member of the attack anyway.

Toure (knock) is fit to play Wednesday against Everton.

Toure was held out of Saturday's FA Cup tie against Norwich, but the undisclosed ailment was never considered serious, and he is fully expected to slot right back into the starting XI.

Toure attempted two shots, won six tackles and made three interceptions in Tuesday's goalless draw with Leicester.

The Ivorian powerhouse was limited to a predominantly defensive role versus counterattacking Leicester, leaving most of the offensive responsibilities to his teammates. Toure did smash one half volley from outside the box that appeared to be headed for the back of the net, but his attempt was blocked by the Foxes defense. He could see his role in the attack fluctuate based on the personnel City choose to deploy, but will remain an important member of the team. Next up is a Saturday clash with Watford.

Toure scored one and had two shots on target in Manchester City’s 4-1 home win against Sunderland on Boxing Day.

For long periods of City’s 2-1 defeat to Arsenal last Monday, Toure was anonymous and this has been a major criticism of him over the past couple of seasons. That being said, his class is undeniable and is still an integral part of City’s set up. He may not be the midfield dynamo that he once was but he is still a good Fantasy option albeit not Tier 1 anymore. If you can’t get hold of De Bruyne or Silva you could do far worse than pick up the Ivorian.

Toure scored a goal in Monday's 2-1 defeat to Arsenal.

Toure was invisible for the first 80 minutes, but turned it on for the final 15 minutes. His 82nd minute goal was a candidate for goal of the year, expertly placing the ball beyond Petr Cech, who didn't make a move toward the ball as he thought it would fly wide, in the top corner of the goal. In 15 Premier League matches, Toure is up to three goals and five assists, but has struggled to stay involved and on the pitch for long stretches of time this season.

Toure tallied an assist in Saturday's 2-1 victory over Swansea City.

Just two minutes after Swansea found the equalizer and looked to be walking away from their first match without Gary Monk with a point, Toure whipped in a free kick that deflected off Kelechi Iheanacho for the game winner. Toure, who's struggled with injuries throughout the season—missing the last Premier League match—tallied his first assist since Sep. 26 and has five on the season to go with two goals in 14 EPL matches.
