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.

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.

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.

Montero (thigh) is available off the bench Saturday at Watford.

Montero has been a solid contributor in some formats that give points for peripheral stats, but he's not going to do much from the bench Saturday.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Montero picked up a thigh injury during training and won't be available for Sunday's match against Manchester United.

Swansea elected to keep Montero's unavailability under wraps until lineups were officially released since it appears that Montero actually suffered the injury sometime earlier in the week. He'll get an added week of rest, however, with the upcoming international break while Wayne Routledge occupies his spot in the backline Sunday.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Montero picked up an assist in Saturday’s 2-0 win against Newcastle United.

Montero turned the right back inside out before crossing for Andre Ayew to make it 2-0 in the 52nd minute. Montero was a constant menace in Saturday’s game and even saw Daryl Janmaat sent off early for persistent foul play.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Montero (hamstring) is starting Saturday against Newcastle.

Montero left last weekend's match against Chelsea with cramps, but it was never considered a serious issue and he'll slot right back into the starting lineup against a Newcastle side that allowed two goals to Southampton in Gameweek 1.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Montero exited Saturday's match against Chelsea with cramps but manager Garry Monk acted in caution and doesn't believe Montero's availability will be in question for the upcoming bout with Newcastle, Alex Bywater of the Western Mail reports.

Montero got off two shots on goal before Monk pulled the plug in favor of Wayne Routledge after 71 minutes against Chelsea. The midfielder dealt with a hamstring issue last season and clearly Monk is closely monitoring Montero's workload coming into the new year, which could stymie Montero's production until he gains the confidence of his manager.
