RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Defoe (ankle) is starting Saturday against Stoke City.

Defoe picked up the injury Monday against Crystal Palace after netting the match-winner, but it was never considered serious and he'll slot back into the starting lineup, though Fabio Borini is knocking on the door for additional playing time.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Defoe (ankle) is expected to be fit for Saturday's match with Stoke at the Stadium of Light, according to Sky Sports.

Defoe scored the winner against Crystal Palace on Monday but was replaced six minutes later with a minor knock. He should be a full go Saturday, however, barring any complications during the week.

Defoe netted the only goal in the 1-0 victory over Crystal Palace on Monday.

Defoe scored the match-winning goal in the 80th minute with a left-footed shot from the center of the box. This goal took his total up to three goals in 10 Premier League appearances this season.

Defoe got off five shots and scored a goal in a 6-2 loss to Everton on Sunday.

Defoe appeared to be done with the Premier League a year ago at this time, but he's made quite the resurgence with Sunderland. That is now his third goal in nine games this season and it's easy to see why Sunderland still had faith in the 33-year-old last season. He has failed to record an assist this season and that's something they'll need out of him, as he and Darren Fletcher have seven goals with no assists this season.

Defoe (hamstring) is available off the bench Saturday against West Ham.

Defoe has missed a few games due to the ailment, and Fabio Borini will get one more start before Defoe likely regains full fitness over the international break.

Defoe (hamstring) is available off the bench Saturday against Manchester United.

Defore injury isn't considered overly serious, but he'll continue to sit, with Fabio Borini getting the start up front.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Defoe "has some problems with his hamstring but I think he will be available" in Saturday's trip to Old Trafford to take on Manchester United, according to manager Dick Advocaat.

The 32-year-old English striker is having a renaissance year for Sunderland. After returning to form in the last campaign with Toronto FC in the MLS, Defoe has five goals in seven matches across all competitions, aided by a hat trick in the Capital One Cup against Exeter City. If Defoe can't go, Fabio Borini would retain his spot in the starting XI from the Black Cats' midweek cup tie against Manchester City.
