Steven Caulker has returned to Southampton's squad after battling a sinus infection last week.
It's unknown what Southampton's back line will look like with Ryan Bertrand possibly coming back and new signing Virgil Van Dijk making a push towards regular playing time. We would avoid Caulker in week seven in an attempt to try and see where Southampton's defense ends up and if he starts, he can be used in week eight. Sep 24 - 7:41 PM

Steven Caulker has been ruled out for this weekend's match due to a sinus infection.

Caulker didn't start last weekend's match but is trying to gain a spot in the Southampton rotation and his sinuses are slowing him down. Maya Yoshida and Jose Fonte are expected to start once again in the middle for Southampton and Caulker may have a chance to come into the starting XI for week three.

Southampton added to their center back options by acquiring Steven Caulker from Queens Park Rangers on a season-long loan.

Once the Saints lost their rights to retain Toby Alderweireld, they looked destined to bring in another center back before the end of the summer window. The question was how prolific a player they would grab. Maya Yoshida looked to be the one to partner Jose Fonte had Southampton stuck with the current options, but Caulker will certainly present a challenge now for Yoshida. Caulker was once lauded as one of the better young English center backs but his reputation took a hit while playing for Rangers. Odds are Ronald Koeman will give the spot to Yoshida in Week 1 but despite the budget fantasy price, he cannot be trusted to hold the position long enough to warrant in investment.

Steven Caulker is a doubt ahead of QPR's trip to the Etihad as they try to stave off relegation.

QPR are highly unlikely to avoid the drop at this point and their chances are lessened with the likely absences of Steven Caulker, Bobby Zamora, Clint Hill and Mauricio Isla. Nedum Onuoha is definitely out with a suspension picked up last weekend and Rio Ferdinand is absent following the tragic passing of his wife. Not good times at Loftus Road for sure.

A hand injury forced Queens Park Rangers defender Steven Caulker off at Anfield in GW35 as a late Steven Gerrard winner all but sealed the fate of Rangers’ who are now 7–points from safety with an inferior goal difference.

Caulker suffered a suspected fractured hand and his injury provided Suk-Young Yun with a chance of a return having missed the previous month after suffering from concussion against West Brom. The Korean international is the player most likely to be tasked with keeping Sergio Aguero quiet in GW36 if Caulker is ruled out although he may be able wear a protective cast. The availability of Rio Ferdinand is not currently known – the defender has battled his way back to full fitness but is now on compassionate leave after the player announced his wife – Rebecca - had lost her short battle with breast cancer.

Queens Park Rangers vs Crystal Palace ends 0-0 after a sloppy affair from both sides.

Steven Caulker had a chance cleared off the line for QPR and Jason Puncheon had a decent stoppage time effort for Palace, but beyond that there were very from chances from either team Sunday at Loftus Road. The quick turnaround from Boxing Day seemed to take a little bit out of the players both physically and mentally. Palace (16 points) are winless in their last seven and remain in the relegation zone while QPR now sit three spots above them with 18 points. Rangers battle Swansea at home on New Year's day and Palace travel to Aston Villa.

QPR's defensive struggles continue and it doesn't look to be getting any easier as the season continues.

QPR conceded four goals for the second time in four weeks which puts their season total at nine goals. Steven Caulker has been on the field for all of them. With three games against the Top 4 (currently) over the next six weeks, and five of their next seven against Top 10 teams (currently), it'd be a stretch recommending anyone on this team at this point in time. Although, a Week 5 matchup at home vs Stoke could be worth a shot. Still, the 15 percent of owners invested in Caulker is way too high at this point, especially with the fifth-highest price point of any defender in the game.

Steven Caulker scored solid fantasy points in Week 2 despite QPR's 4-0 defeat at Tottenham.

One of the highest scoring defenders in Yahoo's game last season, Caulker is back in the Premier League with QPR and has picked up where he left off despite his side's poor start to the new campaign. Caulker grabbed 12 points against Spurs thanks to a host of passes intercepted and blocks, and he also had shot on target as he continues to look dangerous from set pieces in the opponent's box. The defender appears fixture proof, but you'll need to pay a premium to fit him in your fantasy side now, as his price has risen to £13million.

QPR's new signing Steven Caulker made the top of the list of AM's fantasy defensive recommendations for Week 1.

One of the highest scoring defenders in Yahoo's game last season, Caulker is back in the Premier League with QPR after relegation with Cardiff and is priced very reasonably indeed at just £7million, with a home game against Hull.

QPR have signed Cardiff City defender Steven Caulker for an undisclosed fee.

While the deal is undisclosed the majority of media outlets are reporting a four-year-deal and a fee in the region of £8.5million. The 22-year-old defender leaves relegated Cardiff to join up with his former Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp, and instantly boosts the chances of Queens Park Rangers avoiding relegation this season. England international (with one cap so far) Caulker will form a new partnership alongside recently signed veteran Rio Ferdinand, and should provide value in the Yahoo fantasy game having been one of the most productive defensive point scorers last season.

Queens Park Rangers are interested in Cardiff defender Steven Caulker who is up for grabs after Cardiff were relegated last season.

Caulker is a quality defender and a great leader who captained Cardiff last season. Cardiff manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has already acknowledged that Caulker and Campbell Frazier are on the way out and QPR are reportedly in the hunt for Caulker. QPR have signed veteran center-back Rio Ferdinand but it's unknown if he can stay healthy and a defender of Caulker's quality will certainly help their chances of avoiding relegation. If Caulker ends on a team where he will be a starting defender, he will have good fantasy value as he's very active in chasing down players and getting in front of the ball to block shots.

Arsenal are reportedly looking to bolster their depth at center back with an interest in former Spurs man Steven Caulker.

With only Per Mertesacker, Lorient Koscielny and Thomas Vermaelen as first team-quality center backs and occasional deputy at that position Bacary Sagna likely on his way, Arsenal need at least one more center back this summer. If Spurs don't regret letting Steven Caulker go for too cheap a price last summer, they'll doubly regret it if Arsenal land their former player now that his current club, Cardiff City, have been relegated. The move would make sense for Arsenal and the player. The only question is whether Cardiff City need to sell him to make their finances work and whether Arsenal's is the best offer.

Cardiff City boosted their hopes of Premier League survival with a 3-1 victory over Fulham.

A massive day for fantasy managers who picked Steven Caulker, as he grabbed the opener right on the stroke of half-time. Lewis Holtby equalised just before the hour, but Caulker's second goal and Sascha Riether's own goal secured the Welsh side a huge three points and leaves them just goal difference away from getting out of the relegation zone. Fulham stay rooted to the bottom of the table, four points off saftey, and look to be in serious trouble.

Malky Mackay has been sacked by Cardiff City owner Vincent Tan, ending a prolonged feud in the media between the two.

The move will not sit well with Cardiff fans and understandably so. Mackay steered the Bluebirds to their first taste of the top flight in half a century but you would hardly think it possible based on statements made by Tan in the press. Because of his success, Mackay will find another prominent position, perhaps staying in the Premier League as a club like West Brom could use his services. Ex-Manchester United striker Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, "the baby-faced assassin" has been the first name to hit the rumor mill as a potential replacement for Cardiff but it will be interesting to find out if Tan can find a reputable manager who is comfortable working with such a cantankerous owner.

Cardiff City were horrible in all aspects of the game as they lost 3-0 to Southampton at home.

The defense and attack were just as bad in this game and Cardiff couldn't keep out Jay Rodriguez and company. The score was 3-0 before the half hour mark and Cardiff never recovered to make the game interesting. They improved slightly after half time but the lack of chances and goals made the second half uneventful at best. Malky Mackay's seat is getting warmer and warmer.
