The Scout highlights players who will miss or are close to missing matches

As the season progresses, Fantasy Premier League managers must take into account not only rotation but the absence of players in their squads through suspension.

Players who accumulate 10 yellow cards in Premier League matches up to and including their team's 32nd fixture will serve a two-match ban in the competition.

Players who will miss GW29

Jonny (£4.3m) begins a three-match suspension after receiving a red card for serious foul play in Wolverhampton Wanderers' 4-2 defeat to Leeds United.

In the same match, Matheus Nunes (£4.8m) was sent off for protesting Leeds' fourth goal. He will serve a two-match ban and is next available in Gameweek 31 when Wolves host Brentford.

Casemiro (£4.9m) is serving a four-match suspension and will miss the trip to Newcastle United and the visit of Brentford in Gameweek 29.

The Manchester United midfielder was shown a red card for serious foul play in their 0-0 draw with Southampton in Gameweek 27. As his second red card of the campaign, Casemiro received a four-match ban.

Players close to suspension

Ivan Toney (£7.8m) and James Maddison (£8.2m) are among the players approaching the suspension threshold. 

Brentford and Leicester City both have five matches to play before they have completed 32-mark.

Shandon Baptiste (£4.5m) is available for Brentford's second match of Gameweek 29 against Man Utd, but he is suspended for the trip to Brighton & Hove Albion following his red card in Gameweek 28.

Baptiste was sent off for two bookable offences in the Bees' 1-1 draw with Leicester City.

Palhinha (£4.9m) could return for Fulham's trip to AFC Bournemouth having completed his two-match suspension for collecting 10 yellow cards.

Wout Faes (£4.2m) is available for Leicester's two Gameweek 29 matches after sitting out the draw with Brentford. 

And Joelinton (£5.9m) has completed his two-game ban for reaching the yellow card suspension threshold. He will be in contention for Newcastle's visit by Manchester United and the midweek trip to West Ham United.
