Cisse scored off three shots (one on target) in the disastrous 5-1 loss to Crystal Palace on Saturday.

The Senegalese celebrated his return to the starting XI with a nice and hopeful goal. He was told he still have a place in the team and when called upon duty he didn't disappoint proving he still got it. His second goal of the season in his only fifth start may have opened the door for another start next week versus the Reds.

RotoWire's Tate McIntrye checks in players rising and falling heading into Gameweek 9, including Newcastle's Papiss Cisse who simply can't justify his price in fantasy Premier League given his returns this season.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Cisse (back) is available off the bench Saturday at Manchester City.

Aleksandar Mitrovic will get the start once again, and it seems that as long as he is fit, Cisse will be used off the bench, which puts a big hit to his fantasy value.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Cisse (back) is out against Chelsea, Miles Starforth of the Shields Gazette reports. Manager Steve McLaren hopes to have him back in full training on Monday.

After opening his account on opening day against Southampton, Cisse has struggled to find his form since. After being subbed off at halftime against Watford on Sept. 19, Cisse hasn't played since. He will look to get back on the pitch for next weekend's fixture at Manchester City.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Cisse (illness) is available off the bench Saturday against Arsenal.

Cisse missed the Capital One Cup match earlier this week due to the ailment, but he was always expected to be fit for Saturday's match. Unfortunately, it seems he's lost his starting spot to Aleksandar Mitrovic, which obviously puts a huge dent in his fantasy value.

Cisse is expected to be available for Saturday's match against Arsenal after missing Tuesday's Capital One Cup match against Northampton due to illness

Cisse was replaced in the starting XI by Aleksandar Mitrovic for last weekend's Premier League match, and it's unclear if manager Steve MacLaren will keep that going, or possibly start both together. Either way, Cisse's fantasy value obviously takes a hit if he becomes a part-time player.

Cisse is available off the bench Saturday against Manchester United.

Cisse started and scored in the Premier League opener against Southampton two weeks ago, but he'll move to the bench Saturday in favor of summer-signing Aleksandar Mitrovic.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Cisse took two shots, supplied five crosses and scored his first goal of the season in Sunday's 2-2 draw with Southampton.

The Senegalese striker's starting spot was in question after the acquisition of Aleksander Mitrovic, but he got the nod and had a strong game in the season opener. It remains to be seen how the Newcastle attack will look once Mitrovic is deemed ready to go, but Sunday's performance should earn Cisse another start next week versus Swansea.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Cisse is starting Sunday against Southampton.

Aleksandar Mitrovic is putting some pressure on Cisse's starting place, but with the former not quite fit enough to compete for the job, Cisse will get the opening day start.
