Cisse (knee) will likely be back in a matter of weeks, rather than the initial time table of months, according to manager Alan Pardew.

Cisse was expected to miss quite a bit of time after having an operation on his knee, but it now sounds like he's closer to fitness than originally thought. With Newcastle already struggling to find the back of the net this season, Cisse will likely get a crack at fixing the problem, despite his poor goal scoring record last season.

Cisse scored in the 94th minute of Newcastle's 1-0 victory over Crystal Palace on Saturday.

Cisse scored his first goal since late-December and now has two goals and two assists on the season. With Loic Remy sidelined due to a calf injury, Cisse should see more time up front, but what he does with that playing time probably won't be impactful for most fantasy leagues.
