Tiote was brought on in the 45th minute of Newcastle's 0-4 loss to Southampton on Saturday.

Tiote wasn't able to stop the bleeding as the Newcastle defense looked terrible all match. The Ivorian should help tighten things up defensively, but fantasy owners shouldn't expect much offensive production from Tiote.

Tiote played twice for Côte d'Ivoire during the international break, and is expected to be back in manager Alan Pardew's starting XI for Newcastle's trip to Southampton on Saturday.

Tiote, a defensive enforcer, doesn't score many fantasy points himself, but his presence will improve the Toon defense, creating a slight boost in value for Tim Krul, and the Newcastle defenders.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Tiote is not expected to be ready for Newcastle's season opener against Manchester City, the Shields Gazette reports.

Tiote will be sorely missed going into a tough matchup against a potent Manchester City squad. The Ivorian international doesn't rate highly in fantasy formats because of his defensive role in midfield, but his absence makes any Toon defender slightly less attractive.

Tiote returned from a hamstring injury and got the start in Newcastle's 1-0 victory over Aston Villa on Sunday.

Tiote was able to play 89 minutes of the match and looks to be back to full health. Tiote is integral in the Newcastle defense and should increase the likelihood of Toon clean sheets going forward.
