Schweinsteiger looks to have made minimal progress since injuring his knee almost a month ago and will be out for Sunday's match at Chelsea.

The older you get, the harder it is to come back from injuries and that's probably the case here. Schweinsteiger hadn't done much fantasy-wise this season as it is and Marouane Fellaini is expected to get the start again. Fellaini, with one goal and two assists this season, also has minimal value at Stamford Bridge.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Schweinsteiger (knee) has been ruled out of the Newcastle clash on Saturday.

The 31-year-old midfielder hasn't been a fantasy fire-power, so his absence won't affect too many roster. Marouane Fellaini will probably continue to start as defensive midfielder.

Schweinsteiger (knee) faces a late fitness test for Sunday's match against Liverpool, but is unlikely to play. "Maybe Schweinsteiger is coming back but that is not sure. It is very tight to regain he needs more time, I think," manager Louis van Gaal said.

Schweinsteiger played in the team's third round FA Cup match against Sheffield United, but sat out against Newcastle with this injury. The 31-year-old has played in 27 matches across all competitions this season, scoring a goal while adding two assists.

Schweinsteiger has been ruled out for the trip to St James' Park on Tuesday with a knee injury.

The German sustained the ailment during the FA Cup clash with Sheffield United but had to finish the game with United having made all three subs already. Morgan Schneiderlin or Michael Carrick will probably slot right back in the starting XI and take his spot. None of them is a major fantasy contributor, though.

Schweinsteiger will complete his three-match ban from the FA against the Potters and is thus unavailable.

Schweinsteiger's three match suspension will be completely served, following the incident with Winston Reid. Once his suspension is fulfilled he'll most likely return to the starting lineup and take his place back from Michael Carrick.

Schweinsteiger was banned for three matches by the FA on Thursday after he accepted a charge for violent conduct.

The suspension reportedly stems from an incident involving Winston Reid in last weekend's match that went unseen by officials. Schweinsteiger's ban will go into immediate effect, likely opening the door for Michael Carrick to enter the starting XI in the short term.

Schweinsteiger has been hit with a violent conduct charge, Yahoo Sports report.

The German has until midday on Thursday to reply to the charge for the altercation with Winston Reid in the game versus West Ham on Saturday. If found guilty he could potentially be slammed with a three-game suspension. His to-be-confirmed absence wouldn't affect many fantasy rosters with his role in United not being very fantasy-friendly.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Schweinsteiger scored a goal on four shots (two on target) in Saturday's 1-1 draw with Leicester City.

Not normally a prolific shooter, Schweinsteiger scored his first Premier League goal of his illustrious career and his first goal for Manchester United. Deployed in a slightly more advanced role, Schweinsteiger took full advantage and found the equalizer just before the halftime whistle. Due to his deployment in a deeper lying role, he typically won't be afforded as many opportunities to score and has limited fantasy upside on a week-to-week basis.
