RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Battling an injury for most of the week, Defoe scored twice in Saturday's 3-2 loss against Crystal Palace. He finished with six shots in the match.

The goals were good to see from Defoe, after going scoreless in the last two matches. Home against West Brom next weekend, Defoe could be in line for another goal.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Defoe (knock) is starting on Saturday against Crystal Palace.

Defoe was held out of Sunderland's EFL Cup match at midweek due to the minor knock, but he's back in the starting XI on Saturday.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Defoe (undisclosed) will face a late fitness test before Saturday's match with Crystal Palace.

Defoe last played in the Tottenham match but missed the midweek EFL Cup match because of a knock. If he is healthy enough, he will slot in at centre forward and always has a potential to score. Sunderland will be playing a weakened Crystal Palace side that will be without Scott Dann, Papa Souare, and potentially James Tomkins in defence.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Defoe will miss Wednesday's league cup match against Queens Park Rangers after suffering a knock in Sunday's defeat to Tottenham, reports Sky Sports.

Manager David Moyes is hopeful that Defoe will be available next Saturday to face Crystal Palace despite missing the midweek match.

Defoe put Sunderland ahead from the spot after 80 minutes, only to have Southampton equalize five minutes later. Defoe paired with Fabio Borini at striker and will continue to see the majority of the scoring opportunities for Sunderland. Defoe has two goals in the first three Premier League matches.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Defoe picked up where he left off last season and scored in Saturday's 2-1 loss at Manchester City. Defoe didn't have many chances, finishing with two shots, but took advantage of the best one he got.

Even at 33 years old, it looks like Defoe is in line for another decent season for the Black Cats as long as he can stay healthy. At home against Middlesbrough next weekend, he's worth a look.
