Chamakh was credited with an assist as he returned to Crystal Palace's Starting XI for Wednesday's 3-2 victory over Everton. Chamakh sent the ball towards the net and Jason Puncheon redirected it for the Eagle's first goal midway though the first half.

Chamakh picked up just his second assist go to along with five goals this season. He was hot early in the season but has since cooled as his conversion rate comes back down toward the league average. Crystal Palace do not score many goals but Chamakh is typically involved when they do as he ranks second in both goals and assists for the Eagles this season.

Chamakh began Saturday's match against Cardiff City on the bench but entered in the 64th minute as a substitute. He was able to put a shot on target in his limited time, but was unable to find the back of the net.

Chamakh was making his first appearance in four matches since injuring his groin against Swansea City on March 2. His fantasy value is not what it once was earlier in the season, as he has just one goal and one assist since Dec. 14.

Chamakh has been ruled fit in time for Saturday's relegation battle against Cardiff City, reports Sky Sports. After missing Crystal Palace's last four matches with a hamstring injury, it is uncertain whether Chamakh will start Saturday's match on the pitch or on the bench.

Crystal Palace will certainly welcome back Chamakh to the lineup after scoring just one goal in the four matches he was out. He is not known for taking many shots, but has not needed many to score his five goals so far this season.

Chamakh (thigh) will sit out the Morocco friendly against Gabon on Wednesday, reports Super Sport. He was forced off the pitch early during Crystal Palace's match against Swansea City and is not yet fit to participate. His return date has yet to be determined.

Chamakh was a popular pick earlier in the year, as he was converting goals at an astonishing percentage. However, his low shot totals have caught up with him and his fantasy value has decreased in recent matches.

Chamakh converted a penalty kick to seal the victory for Crystal Palace on Saturday over West Bromwich Albion.

Chamakh had not scored in Premier League play since December, but now has five goals on the season. Chamakh does tend to score in bunches, so this could be the start of a nice run for the Crystal Palace striker.

Chamakh picked up an assist during Tuesday's 1-0 victory over Hull City. The Eagles' striker also attempted one shot and was issued a yellow card for a hard foul on the Tigers' Tom Huddlestone.

Chamakh's shot total remains low as the striker has not scored since the December 14 match against Chelsea. The Tuesday assist was his first of the season as he looks for other ways to participate in Crystal Palace goals during his current drought.
