Ross Barkley    M    Everton
Barkley admitted that he could perform better than he has with Everton since the start of the season, but has resisted the pressure the dip in form typically brings, according to the Daily Mail.

Fantasy Analysis

Everton have struggled this season when compared to last year, and Barkley has been one of the players that hasn't matched his prior season's form. He said he still believes he can make things happen for the club, and that the team will improve. Everton are currently 13th in the table.
Harry Kane    F    Tottenham Hotspur
Kane will get his first start for England in Tuesday's match against Italy, reports Sky Sports.

Fantasy Analysis

The striker scored just over a minute after coming on as a substitute against Lithuania at home. Kane will partner with Wayne Rooney on attack on Tuesday.
Danny Welbeck    F    Arsenal
Welbeck could miss Saturday's match against Liverpool because of the knee injury he sustained during England's win over Lithuania on Friday, the Daily Mirror reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Welbeck returned to the club to begin treatment on the injury and will miss Tuesday's international friendly against Italy. If he is unable to play against Liverpool, Theo Walcott could get the start in his place, if he returns from the Italy match fit.
Daniel Sturridge    F    Liverpool
Sturridge's hip injury is not as serious as initially believed, and there is a possibility he could play Saturday against Arsenal, the Liverpool Echo reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Sturridge has missed most of the season battling injuries, so it seems unlikely that the team will rush him back before he's fully fit, though the match at Arsenal is a huge one for Liverpool's top-four aspirations. If he doesn't start, Raheem Sterling could be moved up front to lead the attack, or Mario Balotelli could even get a call.
Raheem Sterling    M    Liverpool
Sterling (toe) has been deemed fit to face Arsenal on Saturday, the Liverpool Echo reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Sterling scored in England's Euro 2016 qualifier against Lithuania on Friday, but will not play in Tuesday's international friendly against Italy. He had an injection in his toe after the Euro qualifier, and while there was a small question regarding his availability for the Arsenal match, he will be fit. Additionally, he could get the start as a striker, with Daniel Sturridge possibly missing out because of a hip injury.
Claudio Yacob    M    West Bromwich Albion
Yacob is eligible for Saturday's match against QPR after serving a suspension.

Fantasy Analysis

Despite the return, Yacob still figures to be a minimal fantasy impact in nearly all formats.
Gareth Barry    M    Everton
Barry is eligible to play Saturday against Southampton after serving a suspension for yellow-card accumulation.

Fantasy Analysis

Barry will most likely slot back into this regular spot in the starting XI, though his fantasy upside in most formats is quite limited given his role as a defensive midfielder.
Aaron Ramsey    M    Arsenal
Ramsey suffered a minor groin injury during Wales' Euro 2016 qualifier against Israel on Sunday, The Guardian reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Ramsey, who scored the opener for Wales, is certainly now an injury doubt for Saturday's match against Liverpool. Ramsey has three goals in his last four appearance for club and country, and was certainly going to start against Liverpool if he was fully fit.
Jores Okore    D    Aston Villa
Okore was unable to play in Denmark's loss to France on Sunday because of a knee injury, the Birmingham Mail reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Okore had a scan on the knee, which has been swollen, and while there isn't significant structural damage, he is a doubt to play Saturday against Manchester United.
Aleksander Kolarov    D    Manchester City
Kolarov, who is currently dealing with a leg injury, said he would like to return to Italy, according to the Daily Mail.

Fantasy Analysis

Inter Milan appear to be interested in the defender who just signed a new contract with Manchester City last summer. Kolarov has made 101 appearances in the Premier League with Manchester City.
