The summer rumor mill is heating up quickly with news that Charlie Austin may leave Championship-bound QPR for Aston Villa should Christian Benteke leave over the summer.

The logic certainly makes sense. If, as reported frequently, Christian Benteke leaves Aston Villa this summer for Liverpool or some other destination higher up the table then the Villains will certainly need a new forward. QPR need money and have a proven Premier League goal-scorer in Charlie Austin. If Villa can sell Benteke for £30million and buy Austin for the quoted price of £15million then that would look like some pretty solid business. It's all speculation at this point but none of it seems to be unreasonable.

Queens Park Rangers confirmed post-match that bloodied goalkeeper Rob Green suffered no serious after-effects following his head injury during the home win over Newcastle.

Green was on the receiving end of an accidental knee to the face by teammate Joey Barton which ended his afternoon. Medics attended to a laceration around his eye before Alex McCarthy was introduced for only his second BPL appearance. Rangers ended their home campaign on a positive note as they overturned a 1-goal half-time deficit to take all 3-points in scrappy game. Emmanuel Riviere grabbed his first goal in over 18 hours of league football in a dour opening 45 minutes before Matty Phillips levelled early after the break. Leroy Fer rounded off the comeback with a strike worthy of gracing any footballing stage to secure his side’s third win of the year.

Leroy Fer scored a great goal to give QPR a consolation win despite being already relegated.

QPR have already been relegated but they gave their fans something to cheer for as they defeated Newcastle 2-1. Leroy Fer and Matt Phillips were the heroes for QPR while Emmanuel Riviere gave Newcastle hope with his first goal of the season. Newcastle are now deeply involved in the relegation race as a Hull City win could see them relegated in the final week of the season.

Sandro will miss out once again as the Queens Park Rangers midfielder continues to liaise with the Home Office to help rectify a work permit issue.

Sandro was a noticeable absentee at the Etihad last time out and manager Chris Ramsey revealed the midfielder had an issue with his visa - concerns regarding the expiry date – and they were unable to give any definitive timeline on when this problem will be resolved. Rangers have now been relegated to the second-tier of English football but will be looking to redress the balance this weekend after a terrible performance against Man City although the squad is carrying "a few injuries." Clint Hill and Steven Caulker were both risked last time out and will be checked again while Mauricio Isla and Bobby Zamora have a late test; Rio Ferdinand [compassionate leave] will not be considered. Nedum Onuoha returns after missing GW36 and Mauro Zarate comes into contention following his return for the under-21s.

Queens Park Rangers didn't look like a club in the same league with Manchester City today, and after a 6-0 loss at The Etihad, they officially won't be next season.

You would hope to see any club on the cusp of relegation fighting to the final possible moment to prevent that fate, but it was clear from the get-go today that QPR had resigned themselves. They conceded within four minutes and nothing improved from then on. Fans should at least thank Charlie Austin for single-handedly keeping hopes alive throughout most of the season, but poor play was found virtually everywhere else, especially in the back. Expect a massive gutting of the squad as ownership prepares to cope with the financial windfall of dropping back into the Championship.

Clint Hill is unlikely to feature for QPR against Manchester City this weekend as he nurses a hamstring injury back to health.

Clint Hill is about as uninteresting as it gets when it comes to fantasy Premier League and even less so, if that's possible, on a weekend when QPR travel to the Etihad. The injury is only worth noting because it is one of multiple potential absences for the Rs while City have a number of key players - Yaya Toure, Vincent Kompany, and Jesus Navas - all coming back to fitness. It could get ugly if City go up early.

Bobby Zamora has scored some huge goals for QPR but he may be deprived of an encore as a hip injury may keep him from playing at the Etihad in Week 36.

It was Bobby Zamora's goal that rocketed QPR back into the Premier League as they were teetering on the brink of financial ruin. Despite speculation that he might retire on that note, Zamora stayed on at Loftus Road and contributed to the Rs attempts to stay up for a second consecutive season in the Premier League. Injury has left him at the periphery of the squad for much of the season but he has still managed to contribute occasionally. That is unlikely to be the case this weekend with a hip injury plaguing the forward but you never want to rule him out after some of the highlights he has produced in his time at the club.

Mauricio Isla is a doubt ahead of QPR's Week 36 trip to the Etihad as they attempt to beat the drop.

Chilean Isla hasn't played since mid-April when he went the distance in the West London Derby at Loftus Road. He was on the bench against West Ham on the 25th of April but didn't even get that far last weekend as the Rs fell again. It will be all hands on deck in an effort to avoid relegation so if Chris Ramsey thinks Isla has a part to play, the chances are he'll be thrown out there. His value is still fairly low given the uncertainty, the opponent and the venue.

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.

Matthew Phillips has probably played well enough this season to find a Premier League home for 2015-16 after QPR are relegated.

QPR are going to be in a horrible financial position heading into the summer and their relegation will not help matters. Charlie Austin, Robert Green, Leroy Fer and Matthew Phillips are the most likely players to be valued enough by other clubs that QPR can sell them in a vain attempt to balance the books. Austin is likely the only really big ticket item but Green, Fer and Phillips could each fetch at least solid fees.

Leroy Fer returned to first team action for QPR with a goal in a losing effort against Liverpool.

It may be a bittersweet return to the starting line-up for Leroy Fer. He scored but it appears all but certain that Queens Park Rangers will be relegated. Fer's performances this season when he was healthy have probably been good enough that he will find a job elsewhere in the Premier League for next season. That said, this will be his second consecutive relegation which, at some point, has to earn a player a reputation as not quite good enough regardless of how his individual efforts might appear.

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.
May 3 - 12:03 PM

Leroy Fer scored a goal, had one disallowed and had another well-saved by Simon Mignolet but he couldn't stop QPR from dropping a 2-1 decision at Anfield.

The writing is on the wall for QPR. With Leicester City, Sunderland and Aston Villa all picking up three points in Week 35 the Rs failure to even pick up a point looks like it may doom them to relegation. With three matches to play, Chris Ramsey's men sit 7 points from safety. Probably time for Leroy Fer and Charlie Austin to start looking for new clubs for next season.

Bobby Zamora is struggling to get fit for QPR's clash against Liverpool this weekend.

It's very unlikely that Zamora will make this weekend's match so you should avoid him in all fantasy formats. QPR are huge underdogs in this match and there is really no value to be found there. Focus on Liverpool's attack or find another match to look for value.
May 1 - 7:10 PM

QPR's hopes of avoiding relegation from the Premier League were hit as Charlie Austin missed a penalty as they could only draw at home against West Ham.

Austin's first-half penalty, awarded after a handball from James Collins, was saved by West Ham goalkeeper Adrian to keep the score at 0-0. At the other end the Hammers' left-back Aaron Cresswell had a 25-yard free-kick tipped over by QPR goalkeeper Robert Green, but that was the only real chance for the away side. The hosts pushed for the win and thought they had won it when Richard Dunne headed in, but the goal was ruled out by referee Mike Jones. The draw keeps QPR in the relegation zone while West Ham remain in 10th.
