Barry (groin) is out for Saturday's match against Bournemouth.

The holding midfielder turned in a 45 minute shift in the team's last Premier League math, but missed the FA Cup semifinal against Manchester United. The 35-year-old aims to return to the squad for the next match at Leicester City on May 7.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Barry was sent off in the 87th minute of Saturday's FA Cup tie against Chelsea for receiving a second yellow card.

Barry grabbed the start after he recovered on time from his illness but he'll have to miss more time now with this new issue. He's not a major fantasy factor, however playing as a holding midfielder, and won't be sorely missed in most formats.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Barry tallied an assist in Monday's 1-1 draw with Crystal Palace.

The holding midfielder rarely finds himself in a position to pick up goals or assists, but provided an inch perfect ball into the boot of Romelu Lukaku who calmly finished from just outside the goal mouth to equalize in the 81st minute. Barry had three assists and no goals in 44 matches across all competitions and is a valuable piece to the Toffees, but not so much to fantasy teams, this assist notwithstanding.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Barry was issued two yellow cards and was sent off in Saturday's 2-1 defeat to Arsenal.

While both were certainly bookable offenses, Barry was perhaps unlucky to see red in the 94th minute. With the two yellow cards, Barry is facing a suspension for the team's next match against Norwich City. The 34-year-old came into the match having been issued two yellow cards this season after picking up 10 in Premier League play last season.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Barry grabbed the lone assist in the 1-0 win over Southampton Saturday.

Barry was in a good position off a corner and sent in a short pass in the middle of the box that was simply poked in by Phil Jagielka. Barry sits in the top-10 in total passes with over 1600 and passes per game with over 60 per match. Barry hasn't provided much in goals or assists, but is important as anyone on this Everton team defending and controlling the midfield. Look for Barry to continue to start next Saturday when Everton take on Swansea City.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Barry is eligible to play Saturday against Southampton after serving a suspension for yellow-card accumulation.

Barry will most likely slot back into this regular spot in the starting XI, though his fantasy upside in most formats is quite limited given his role as a defensive midfielder.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Barry picked up his 10th yellow card of the season Wednesday against Chelsea, which would have suspended him for two games, but he picked up another yellow card and the subsequent red card will mean he faces only a single match ban, the Liverpool Echo reports.

Barry will miss Everton's Premier League match against Leicester City on Feb. 22, but he will be eligible to return March 1 against Arsenal. The down side is that he's still on nine yellow cards, which means his next one will result in a two-match ban.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Barry picked up two yellow cards and a subsequent red card in the 1-0 loss to Chelsea Wednesday.

It was very disappointing for Everton and Barry as they conceded the lone goal seconds after the red card. Barry has been very solid for Everton this season as he is the catalyst in the midfield and is currently fourth in the Premier League with 1,523 passes. He'll miss Everton's next match on the 22nd when they host Leicester in a must-win game.
