Jack Cork returned from injury and started Southampton's match against Tottenham over the weekend.
Cork was considered a big doubt to play against the Spurs but he made a return and it didn't seem like the ankle was bothering him. He played well but a late yellow card capped his fantasy output to just three points. Cork shouldn't be on any fantasy teams despite being an important part of Southampton's midfield.

Jack Cork and Victor Wanyama are still out for Southampton.

Cork is struggling with an ankle injury and Wanyama is dealing with a knock. Jack Cork is expected back next weekend and there is no timetable for Wanyama. It's also uncertain who gets the starting spot when both are healthy. Wanyama was the clear favorite early in the season but Cork played extremely well in his absence and there is no clarity at the moment. Overall, it's a situation to the avoid for now.

Jack Cork will miss a few weeks with the ankle problem he picked up Southampton's last game.

Victor Wanyama is also out, so James Ward-Prowse will likely step in for the Saints. Ward-Prowse was a good fantasy choice early in the season and he takes corners and some free-kicks for Southampton. The Saints face Norwich City, who concede 2.3 goals per away game. Feel free to use Ward-Prowse this week.

Jack Cork left Southampton's game against Crystal Palace in the first half due to an ankle injury.

Cork landed awkwardly and injured his ankle early in the first half. He was seen leaving Selhurst Park with a protective boot and a pair of crutches but there has been no return date mentioned yet. His injury will be further assessed in the coming week but early expectations are for him to miss at least a few weeks. He was replaced by Victor Wanyama, who will most likely start if Cork misses any time. Wanyama is a decent fantasy choice, mainly because he comes in at under £5M.

Jack Cork has been phenomenal during Victor Wanyama's absence and came on at halftime to help the Saints win against Fulham.

Cork was one of Southampton's best players last year but had lost his spot in the rotation after the signing of Wanyama during the summer. When Wanyama went down, Cork once again impressed and even received the man of the match award in his last start. Victor Wanyama was named the starter in the following game but clearly struggled with his fitness and Cork came on at halftime to help his team to three goals and a win. It will interesting to see who starts this weekend but I would avoid both in fantasy due to the uncertainty.

Jack Cork was disappointed with his performance during the midweek match against Aston Villa.

Cork played the entire second half after Victor Wanyama was forced off with an injury but was not happy with his performance. Cork was dispossessed of the ball on what led to Aston Villa's second goal and the midfielder attributed the mistake to rustiness. It's easy to see why Cork is rusty as the 45 minutes on Wednesday was his longest Premier League appearance of the season. Cork will likely start this weekend if Victor Wanyama is still out.

Jack Cork and Gaston Ramirez are both available and fit for Southampton's game against Chelsea this weekend.

Cork missed last week's game because of an ankle injury and Ramirez was unavailable because of a late return from international duty. Both players are likely to start on the bench but could feature as substitutes.

Jack Cork will miss Southampton's game against Arsenal with an ankle injury.

The severity of the injury is unknown and there is no timetable for Cork's return. After an impressive campaign last year, Cork has been a backup this season to new signing Victor Wanyama. He could gain some fantasy value if he leaves Southampton in January.

Southampton midfielder Jack Cork may be headed to the bench next season because of Saints' new signins Victor Wanyama despite being one of the team's stars last season.

Cork played as a central midfielder last season and complimented Morgan Schneiderlin well. Schneiderlin was probably the Saints' best player, so he is pretty much guaranteed a starting spot this season but Cork might be replaced by new signing Wanyama. Wanyama is versatile, and there is a possibility Pochettino can play all three at the same time but don't be surprised if Cork is on the bench.
