Nathan Dyer will face a late fitness test ahead of Leicester City's match against Norwich.
Dyer has been dealing with a knee issue since joining Leicester on loan from Swansea and he will have to test his fitness before the match on Saturday. If he is declared fit, he could start or come off the bench, but either way, it's too risky to use him in fantasy tomorrow. Hold off at least another week. Oct 2 - 7:39 PM

Claudio Ranieri has confirmed that Nathan Dyer will miss the visit of Arsenal this weekend as the Swansea loanee continues his recovery from a knee injury.

Dyer hasn’t featured since colliding with Aston Villa goalkeeper Brad Guzan in GW5 after scoring his sides winning goal. However the winger is close "He's getting better, but he is not at 100 per cent yet." There are no other fitness concerns for the Foxes – apart from long term absentee Matty James – and Ranieri will consider his options on Friday after those that were involved in the Capital One cup have recovered. In-from players – Jamie Vardy and Riyad Mahrez – will be among the first names on the team sheet following their impressive start to the season.

Nathan Dyer was absent from the Leicester side which managed to pick up a point from the Britannia Stadium on Saturday despite falling behind for the fourth successive PL game.

Dyer was introduced from the bench at Villa Park last time out and grabbed a last minute winner to cap a remarkable comeback for Leicester, however his goal came at a cost. Dyer bravely nipped between two defenders to head home a Riyad Mahrez cross but in doing so was clattered by home keeper Brad Guzan. It was the physiotherapist who told Dyer that he had scored after the winger was almost knocked unconscious. But having been cleared to play the Swansea loanee picked up a minor knee injury and was rested as a precaution. Ranieri also confirmed that N’Kolo Kante could be available for the Capital One Cup game on Tuesday as his withdrawal was due to cramp.

Nathan Dyer has seen the writing on the wall left by Andre Ayew and decided that his best course of action is a season-long loan to Leicester City.

Andre Ayew has been one of the signings of the summer already and the man he supplanted in the Swans starting line-up, Nathan Dyer, has taken the hint and left town in search of playing time. His move to Leicester City certainly doesn't guarantee playing time on the right side of the attack given the Foxes' strong attacking start to the season but there's at least a better chance of playing time with a man called The Tinkerman in charge.

Nathan Dyer, Matt Grimes, and Marvin Emnes scored as the Swans dispatched York City in the second round of the Capital One Cup.

The story rings familiar. Premier League team changes out almost entire starting eleven but still manages to easily outclass a lower division foe. These are the blowouts that make the upsets so special. Garry Monk's side was entirely different than the starting eleven that could manage only a draw at the Stadium of Light over the weekend. Fortunately, the results were better this time around and the Swans will move on to the third round of the League Cup.

Nathan Dyer saw a drop in production from his previous season and it resulted in having his minutes scaled back.

Actually, Dyer played just over 100 minutes more over the course of the 2014/2015 season that he did the previous year, but it took a season-ending injury to Wayne Routledge to allow Dyer to catch back up. He registered only three goals this season, half of what he totaled the year before. Now entering his late 20's, next season will decide if his down year was a blip or if he is beginning a steady decline. He is a popular figure for the club, having been with them since their Championship days. He will likely be given every chance to re-establish himself.

With Wayne Routledge lost for the rest of the season, it appears Nathan Dyer will be given a run in the XI and he can be a productive fantasy weapon.

Dyer has been a mainstay on the right wing in Swansea's 4-3-3 formation for several seasons until this campaign, as Gary Monk has been shaking up tactics and giving pitch time to others since mid-February. Dyer has a pretty good track record in fantasy when playing regularly and should be considered as a budget option for the final stretch of the season. More can be read about him in this week's Bargain Hunter column.

Garry Monk revealed during his press conference for Swansea City that winger Nathan Dyer will be available for selection when the Swans host Queens Park Rangers tomorrow.

Since grabbing his second and third goals of the season in Week 2, Dyer has failed to find paydirt, with some nagging injuries eating into his pitch time. Gylfi Sigursson and Wifried Bony are the premium picks you want from the Swans attack in a very attractive matchup with a listless Rangers defense. Still, Dyer has been a decent budget pick in most fantasy games for years now, and a matchup like this may be just what the doctor ordered for him to grab a haul.

Swansea's dream start to the season continued with an easy 3-0 win over West Brom that featured a Nathan Dyer brace.

Nathan Dyer scored his first just seconds after the opening whistle from a Gylfi Sigurdsson backheel. Wayne Routledge scored a crazy jumping side volley for the Swans second. Dyer completed the scoring in the second half when he beat Ben Foster to his near side. Wilfried Bony should have scored as well seeing one great chance go over the bar and another kept out of the goal by a defender's arm without it being called.

A first half goal from Nathan Dyer was all that was needed to give Swansea City their second consecutive win to start the season, as they hold off several late flurries by Burnley to win 1-0.

Things are looking up at the Liberty Stadium in the early going. Sure, it was Burnley, but there have been plenty of underdogs giving their favored opponents fits already this season. It was a sweet through ball from Gylfi Sigurdsson that found Dyer using his pace to streak down the right and fire the ball in. Wilfried Bony didn't make the score sheet, but had his share of chances. The defense had little to do through the first hour as Swansea dominated possession, but as they game wound down, Burnley gave them a proper test and the Swans passed it.

Garry Monk will have a couple of extra weapons out wide available to him as Swansea City prepare for the unenviable task of opening their season at Old Trafford.

Both Nathan Dyer, who has generally been a regular, and Wayne Routledge are ready to go this Saturday, though from a fantasy perspective there is not much optimism in using either for Week 1. Outside of Wilfried Bony, who is capable of scoring anywhere, and Gylfi Sigursson, who looks to recreate the magic he displayed in his first go around with the Swans, there is no one else that comes close to appearing on our radars until at least Week 2 when they host Burnley.

Swansea City's official Twitter page is reporting that Nathan Dyer's ankle, which was injured during the Swans recent match with Norwich City, is not broken, but there is ligament damage.

Good news for Swansea as they avoid losing Dyer for the remainder of the season. There is no timetable yet for his return but the report measures his absence in terms of weeks, not months, so it would be logical to assume he should be working his way back around the New Year. Wayne Routledge should deputize in his absence.

Nathan Dyer had a bittersweet day for Swansea City by scoring their lone goal in a 1-1 draw with Norwich City only to later injure his ankle severely enough to be stretchered off the pitch.

In the 12th minute, Ashley Williams sent a deep pass in the area of Dyer who fought off Sebastien Bassong and directed the ball toward goal at which point it was a race between he and Norwich keeper John Ruddy. Dyer got there first and flicked the ball over the keeper for the score. He crossed paths with Bassong again near the end of the first half, when the two met for a header challenge and Dyer landed awkwardly as his ankle appeared to buckle. Dyer looks like he is poised for a lengthy injury layoff, meaning Wayne Routledge should be handed regular starts on the wing.

Roberto Martinez has been linked with a number of attack-minded right midfielders this off-season and Swansea's Nathan Dyer is next on the list.

With Callum McManaman, Nathan Redmond, and a variety of others already linked it seems clear that Roberto Martinez is looking for a right midfielder with speed and attacking capabilities. With Swansea having been linked with Belgian Nacer Chadli it may be a case of the Swans buying Dyer's replacement before they sell the diminutive winger. Dyer would bring an element of speed currently missing from Everton's squad as well as experience playing the style of football Martinez coached at Swansea even though the two never overlapped.

Swansea - having already added youth in the form of Jonjo Shelvey, Jordi Amat and Alejandro Pozuelo - continue to shop for youth as they track Belgian Nacer Chadli.

The Belgian winger would make a nice addition to the crop of young players that Swansea have brought in already. He has been productive in the Eredivisie with 21 goals in 80 matches for FC Twente and has been capped 14 times by Belgium. The Swans still need a significant signing at forward but if Chadli arrives their secondary work for the summer will be very solid indeed with the caveat that most of it likely won't pay off until 2014-15 at the earliest. Current starters like Nathan Dyer don't have to start worrying...yet.
