Montero (hamstring) returned to training this week and may be available for Saturday's match against Leicester City.

Montero has been off the pitch for the last few weeks with a strained hamstring but appears to be nearing a return, if not Saturday. The 25-year-old has moved in and out of the starting XI this season and it would be somewhat surprising to see him as a starter Saturday since manager Garry Monk will likely ease him back into action upon his eventual return.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Montero (hamstring) will face a late fitness test to determine his availability for Saturday's game against Hull City, manager Garry Monk said Thursday.

Montero has been playing very well of late, grabbing two assists in his last three games. Interestingly, both came as a substitute, but his fine play will certainly give Monk food for thought about a potential starting spot, if he can pass the fitness test.

Montero (hamstring) returned to the pitch Saturday against Blackburn in FA Cup action.

Montero was subbed onto the pitch in the 62nd minute of Saturday's match after being relegated to the sidelines with a hamstring injury since Boxing Day. He seems to be in full health moving forward as Swansea picks up Premier League play against Southampton on Sunday.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Montero has been ruled out for a month after suffering a hamstring strain in Swansea City's victory over Aston Villa on Boxing Day.

Montero isn't a big fantasy option, as he's failed to score a goal and has only three assists this season, though he's a very important piece to the Swansea lineup.

Montero (hamstring) returned to the lineup against Aston Villa on Boxing Day.

Montero took one shot on the day but it ultimately wasn't on goal. Regardless, it was a successful outing for him as he returned from a minor hamstring injury and was partially responsible for the 1-0 victory over Villa.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Montero (hamstring) was not available for the match against Hull City on Saturday, although manager Garry Monk is not concerned for his long-term viability, the South Wales Evening Post reports.

Montero will likely face a late-fitness test ahead of Friday's match against Aston Villa to determine his availability. If he is ultimately unfit to play, then Nathan Dyer will likely garner another start.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Montero registered his second assist of the season Sunday against Arsenal and also took three shots, with two of them being on target.

Montero really hasn't been a focal point of Swansea's attack this season but the tides turned for Sunday's match. There needs to be more proof of this offensive potential in future matches to warrant ownership of Montero, although he's certainly worth monitoring in upcoming matches against Manchester City, Crystal Palace, and QPR.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Montero signed a four-year contract with Swansea City on Thursday after transferring from Mexican side Morelia.

Montero played for Ecuador at this summer's World Cup and is capable of playing on either flank. He is part of a makeover at Swansea, who have brought in six players this summer so far.
