Anichebe was a 91st minute substitute in Sunday's 1-0 win at Tottenham.

Anichebe missed two games with a hernia injury and his return gives manager Alan Irvine a plethora of options at the main striker position. The Nigerian forward has one assist so far this campaign and faces a battle from his compatriot Brown Ideye for the starting berth. Fantasy owners can expect a maximum of six goals in addition to a few assists and he represents a low level option for managers.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Anichebe (hernia) is unlikely to make Saturday’s game against Everton after missing training on Thursday. “I’m still not ruling him out, he’s been training with the medical people,” manager Alan Irvine told the official club website.

Anichebe (hernia) dropped to the bench for the defeat at Swansea and has been suffering with the hernia problem throughout the international break. The Nigerian striker has yet to register a goal so far this campaign and his lack of goals or assists makes the forward worth next-to-nothing for fantasy managers.

Anichebe, who has missed the last few games with a hamstring injury, was available off the bench for Saturday's match at Norwich City, although he did not make an appearance.

Anichebe has three goals and three assists this season, most of which have come in 2014. That being said, he remains a relatively weak fantasy option given the struggles of the West Brom attack overall.

Anichebe faces a late fitness test on his injured hamstring ahead of Saturday's match against Cardiff City, the club's official web site reports.

Anichebe has started the last three games for the Baggies, although he has yet to find the back of the net despite taking 10 shots in that span. His last two goals have come when he's entered as a sub, scoring against Liverpool on Feb. 2 and Chelsea on Feb. 11.

Anichebe is doubtful to play in Saturday's Premier League match against Cardiff due to an illness, the Daily Express reports.

Anichebe finally scored his first Premier League goal of the season against Manchester City on December 4 and he took six shots in his next match against Norwich last Saturday. Unfortunately, he won't be able to keep the positive momentum going this week thanks to the illness, although it certainly shouldn't be a long-term absence.
