Pienaar has been ruled out for Saturday's match against Watford because of his hamstring injury, with manager Roberto Martinez saying Wednesday that Pienaar will "be out of action for a bit longer."

Pienaar struggled with injuries last year as well, and this season is surely not starting off on the right foot. Additionally, even when he is fully fit, finding a consistent spot in the lineup will be hard to come by.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Pienaar will miss the start of the season after picking up a hamstring injury during last week's friendly against Hearts, The Guardian reports.

Pienaar played only 11 times last season because of numerous issues, though even when he's fully fit, he's not a regular starter, which makes him a very unreliable fantasy option.

Pienaar (knee) is available off the bench Saturday against Southampton.

Pienaar has been out since December with the injury and wasn't likely close to starting anyway, which keeps his fantasy value quite limited.

Pienaar (knee) has trained this week and may be available for Saturday's match against Southampton, manager Roberto Martinez said Thursday.

Pienaar has not been available for Everton since Dec. 20, coincidentally against Southampton, though he was an unused substitute. Even when he does return to full fitness, he just doesn't get enough playing time to warrant much fantasy consideration in even the deepest of formats.

Pineaar was used as a sub Sunday and recorded an assist in the 3-1 win over Burnley.

Pineaar has been lacking playing time this season, but this productivity is promising. He's in a tough spot as he doesn't have a definitive spot and that injured players at his position are coming back from injury soon (Barkley, Mirallas). His playing time will likely continue to falter, so his time at Everton may be short.

Pienaar, who started Sunday's Premier League match against Manchester United after recovering from a thigh injury, had to be replaced in the 64th minute after picking up a knock.

Pienaar has battled a number of different injuries over the last few months and it was surely not a good sign that he had to leave Sunday's match early. He'll be able to rest over the international break, but scans taken next week will likely determine the extent of the injury.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Pienaar (quad) has fully participated in training this week and he appears likely to face Manchester United on Sunday, manager Roberto Martinez confirmed Friday.

Despite a fairly regular playing schedule, Pienaar isn't the most prolific fantasy option.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Pienaar faces a late fitness test ahead of Saturday's Merseyside derby due to the quad injury that has kept him out since August, manager Roberto Martinez said Friday.

Even if Pienaar does return, he isn't likely to play all 90 minutes and he isn't much of a fantasy contributor anyway.
