Montero (hamstring) attained his first Premier League goal of the season in Saturday's 2-0 victory over Stoke City.

Montero was dealing with a hamstring injury ahead of Saturday's match but obviously that didn't slow him down against Stoke. This was his 12th start of the season under manager Garry Monk and he certainly may have played himself into that spot permanently for the remainder of the season.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Montero is starting Saturday against Stoke City.

Montero picked up his hamstring injury during last weekend's match against Newcastle, but it was never considered overly serious. He's been capable of throwing in a large number of crosses, though that only helps in certain fantasy formats.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Montero (hamstring) will be be available for Saturday's match against Stoke City according to manager Garry Monk.

Montero suffered a minor hamstring injury during last week's match against Newcastle but apparently it won't be an issue moving forward. The 25-year-old has made just 11 Premier League starts this season so his potential role against Stoke is unclear.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Montero registered his sixth assist of the season against Newcastle on Saturday.

Montero was placed in the starting XI on Saturday and managed to make his presence felt during the 3-2 victory. He's normally a fixture off the bench so his role in the upcoming match against Stoke City on Saturday is unclear.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Montero (hamstring) was subbed onto the pitch in the 58th minute of Saturday's 0-2 loss against Leicester City.

Montero came into Saturday with a hamstring injury but has apparently returned to health after his normal outing off the bench against Leicester. With a limited role under manager Garry Monk at the moment, the 25-year-old is a bit of a stretch to use in most formats unless he's awarded with a bigger role before the end of the season.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

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.
