Gabby Agbonlahor is considered doubtful for Aston Villa's match against Fulham this Saturday due to an illness.
Villa need all the attacking power they can get with Christian Benteke and Libor Kozak both out for the season. It's unknown how Villa will lineup without their two best strikers missing so it's hard to predict how Agbonlahor's role and fantasy production will be affected. On one hand, he will be relied on more for scoring. On the other hand, Villa will likely struggle in attack and there will be less points to be had. I would avoid the Villa attack for now.

Gabby Agbonlahor "looks pretty good at the minute" according to Paul Lambert and the Villa forward is expected back against West Ham.

Agbonlahor has been out for a few games with a foot injury but is back in training and appears to be very close to a return. I'm not sure if he can go for the full 90 minutes but I think he has a good chance of at least coming off the bench, especially if the game is close.

Gabby Agbonlahor has an outside chance of being fit for Aston Villa's game against West Ham this coming weekend.

Agbonlahor has been dealing with a foot problem since he injured himself against Liverpool a few weeks ago and has missed Villa's last two Premier League games. Paul Lambert said that Agbonlahor is now able to put his weight on it and will attempt to be fit for the West Ham game. A more likely return date is February 11th against Cardiff City.

Gabby Agbonlahor hasn't trained since hurting his foot in a fall over the advertising hoardings at Anfield but will be assessed before Aston Villa play Everton on Saturday.

Agbonlahor sounds doubtful to play against Everton but Paul Lambert will assess him before the game to see if he can go. Agbonlahor has been a big part of VIlla's good form in January and will be missed if he can't play. In the game against West Brom in midweek, Villa lined up with Andreas Weimann and Christian Benteke up top and Delph, Westwood, El Ahmadi, and Bacuna in midfield. Expect a similar lineup against Everton.

Gabby Agbonlahor scored the only goal in the game to give Aston Villa a critical three points and get them back to winning ways.

Aston Villa had earned only four points in December but started on the right path in 2014. Gabby Agbonlahor stole the ball right in front of goal and beat Sunderland's keeper for an easy tap in goal. Christian Benteke and Ron Vlaar returned to Villa's lineup and were instrumental in the win. Vlaar is a huge addition to the defense and having him healthy should help Villa stay away from the relegation zone.

Gabby Agbonlahor scored the only goal for Aston Villa in a 1-1 draw against Swansea.

Agbonlahor showed his importance to the Aston Villa squad when he put them ahead 1-0 in the 7th minute. He has served more as a creator than a scorer in the past but Agbonlahor can put the ball away when given the chance. Aston Villa welcome to point after losing four straight matches and this is something they can build on when they visit Sunderland on New Years Day.

Gabby Agbonlahor will return from his one match ban for accumulated yellow cards.

Agbonlahor increases Libor Kozak's value in a tasty home matchup against Crystal Palace. He creates many chances for Villa and is an important part of their attack. While he does create chances, he does very little else that shows up on the fantasy sheet so he is not an advisable option.

Gabby Agbonlahor is suspended for Aston Villa's match against Stoke City.

Agbonlahor picked up his fifth yellow card last weekend against Manchester United. His absence could see Marc Albrighton keep his spot, or Libor Kozak could partner Christian Benteke.

Fabian Delph praised Gabby Agbonlahor after the forward scored a fantastic solo goal against Southampton on Wednesday.

Agbonlahor has been one of the bright spots for Aston Villa this season and his form was rewarded with a goal this week. Delph believes Agbonlahor can challenge for a spot on England's World Cup Squad next summer and that any defender in the world should be scared of Gabby. Despite his great play on the pitch, Agbonlahor is not a good fantasy option as his contributions don't show up on the stat sheet.

Gabby Agbonlahor, Andreas Weimann, and Fabian Delph are expected to play a bigger role this weekend as they are all fighting to improve their fitness after returning from injuries.

The trio came on in the second half last weekend and inspired Aston Villa to get two goals in a comeback that ended up as a draw. They've been training this week and Paul Lambert believes they will play a bigger role this weekend. Aston Villa also expect to get Antonio Luna back from injury but there is no word on whether he will start.

Gabby Agbonlahor, Andreas Weimann, and Fabian Delph all returned from various injuries to help Aston Villa come back to a 2-2 draw.

The trio came on around the hour mark and their impact was felt immediately as Villa scored twice within 19 minutes of them coming on. They didn't start the game because they just returned from injury and were not fit for an entire 90 minutes. Expect all three to start once they're up to full match fitness.

Gabby Agbonlahor is doubtful and will likely miss Aston Villa's game against West Brom on Monday.

Gabby has been dealing with an ankle problem and it doesn't seem like he'll play this week. With Andreas Weimann also uncertain, Libor Kozak could earn another start for the claret and blues.

Gabby Agbonlahor has been ruled out definitively for Saturday's match against West Ham.

You probably should not have been starting Agbonlahor regardless, but just in case you were, make sure to take him out as he won't feature tomorrow. This might slightly decrease Benteke's value, as Gabby has been one of his most consistent providers, but Villa have enough quality players to provide for Benteke and he is a good bet against the Hammers.

Aston Villa forward Gabby Agbonlahor is doubtful for the team's match against West Ham this weekend due to a knock he picked up during the team's 2-0 loss to Everton.

Agbonlahor suffered an ankle knock during the game and seems to be shaping up like a late fitness check for this game. Villa need him in the squad as they haven't scored a goal in three Premier League games and Gabby worked well with Christian Benteke at the beginning of the season, forming a lethal combination. Expect him to play if healthy and make sure to check back before the weekend for an update.

Aston Villa forward Gabby Agbonlahor didn't feature in last weekend's match against Manchester City but should be back this weekend.

Agbonlahor shouldn't really be in your fantasy lineup but his return could help striker Libor Kozak, who has picked up 19 points in two games for Villa. Agbonlahor creates a lot of chances for Aston Villa and will certainly help their attack if he comes back fit against Hull City this weekend.
