RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Montero (ankle) is not in the 18-man squad to face Arsenal on Saturday.

Montero was unable to play before the international break due to the injury, and his continued absence will allow Mo Barrow to start opposite Wayne Routledge on Saturday.

October 13, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Montero (ankle) is doubtful for Saturday's match with Arsenal.

Montero missed out on Swansea's visit to Liverpool and will face a late fitness test ahead of the Arsenal match. If he is unable to play, Wayne Routledge, Gylfi Sigurdsson, and Modou Barrow could feature in attack.

October 1, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Montero is not in the 18-man squad to face Liverpool on Saturday because of an ankle injury.

Montero's playing time as been rather inconsistent this season, so his absence Saturday shouldn't affect too many fantasy rosters.

September 23, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Montero signed a new four-year deal that will keep him at the Liberty Stadium until the summer of 2020.

Montero arrive at Swansea in 2014 from Mexican side Morelia. He plays mostly on the left-wing and is a pacy option for the Swans.

June 18, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Montero started all four Copa America 2016 matches for Ecuador and was one of the main attacking engines of the team tallying two assists, six shots with two on target, three fouls and drawing five fouls against himself. He took his international tally to 60 caps and 10 goals. Ecuador reached the quarterfinals where they lost 2-1 to the USA.

Montero found regular playing time hard to come by last season for Swansea. Even when on the field, though, he wasn't effective at all limiting his fantasy value to a minimum. The 26-year-old winger saw only 23 Premier League appearances (14 starts) and recorded merely two assists with less than a shot per game on average.

June 12, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Montero had an assist and also registered two shots (both off target) during Ecuador's 4-0 win against Haiti on Sunday.

The Swansea winger is one of Ecuador's biggest attacking threats, and he was at his best in this game with several attacking runs that created havoc in the opposing defense. Even though Ecuador will have a tougher opponent in the quarterfinals against the USMNT, Montero's value should remain pretty high due to his ability to be a difference maker in the final third.

June 9, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Montero tallied an assist, two shots on target and was fouled twice in Wednesday's Copa America 2-2 draw to Peru.

Montero made the most of the equalizing goal. The Amarillos made a break with multiple breathtaking one-touch combinations between few players that resulted in Miller Bolanos scoring on an empty goal. Montego first made a pass to the middle followed by a sharp run behind the defense and when he got the ball back he just flicked it immediately to the wide open Bolanos at the penalty spot. Montero's fantasy upside will be even higher on Sunday against the inferior Haiti in the final group stage match.
