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.

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.

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.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Montero (hamstring) is starting on Sunday against Man City.

Montero isn't a big fantasy scorer, but he does send in a decent number of crosses, which puts him in position for assists.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Montero (hamstring) isn't fully healthy and will likely miss Swansea's match at West Ham this weekend, according to manager Francesco Guidolin.

Swansea are sitting multiple players for the final two matches, and there's no reason to rush Montero back if he's not fully healthy. Montero hasn't scored this season to go with two assists.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Montero (illness) is available off the bench Saturday versus Aston Villa.

Montero is fit enough to make the squad but expectedly, with Leroy Fer and Modou Barrow playing well, he doesn't get a starting role. Montero has failed to live up to expectations and faded after a hopeful beginning of the season. He doesn't have much of a fantasy upside off the bench.

March 12, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Montero is out for Saturday's match against Bournemouth because of an illness.

Montero was far from guaranteed playing time, so while his absence hurts the Swans' depth, it isn't much of a fantasy changer.

September 19, 2015

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Montero was the most dynamic player for Swansea on Saturday, as he sent it eight crosses and completed five dribbles in a 0-0 draw to Everton.

The Ecuadorian has shown some fantastic ability this season, as he continues to setup the offense for Swansea. While he's failed to score this season and recorded just one assist, he's a nice candidate to add to his assist total going forward. After dealing with a minor thigh injury, he appears to be fully healthy as he went the full 90 here. Look for Montero to start again against Southampton next Saturday.
