Cisse had a goal on his only shot and committed two fouls in Saturday's 2-2 draw.

Cisse placed his header in the back of the net to start Newcastle's second half rally to bag his first goal since returning from injury. His next match comes Saturday against a Crystal Palace squad that has allowed 45 goals, tied for ninth-best in league play.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Cisse (groin) is available off the bench Sunday against Sunderland.

Cisse has been out for a considerable amount of time with his injury, so it's unsurprising that he won't draw the start in Sunday's derby, though he could very well feature if the Newcastle attack needs a spark.

Cisse could return from his groin injury for Sunday's Tyne-Wear derby, the Chronicle reports.

Manage Rafa Benitez admitted Tuesday that Cisse is not 100 percent fit yet, but if he's able to show enough in training this week, he could get the green light to return. Newcastle are in desperate need of points, and Cisse's return would add some bite to their attack.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Cisse (groin) is not in the 18-man squad to face Leicester City on Monday.

Cisse has been getting close to full fitness for a number of weeks, but he's apparently still not ready, which will leave Aleksandar Mitrovic to lead the attack once again.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Cisse (groin) is not in the 18-man squad to face Bournemouth on Saturday.

Even when he comes back from his injury, Cisse will need some time to gain full fitness, thus, his fantasy upside will be very limited in the near future.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Cisse (groin) is not in the 18-man squad to face Stoke City on Wednesday.

Cisse's unlikely to get a start soon after returning to fitness given his lengthy layoff, and the Newcastle forward corps is very deep right now with Aleksandar Mitrovic, Seydou Doumbia and Ayoze Perez, among others.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Cisse could return from his groin injury Wednesday against Stoke City, the Shields Gazette reports.

Cisse has been out since Dec. 19 due to the ailment, which eventually required surgery, and given the long layoff, he's highly unlikely to fight for a starting spot until he's worked up his match fitness.

February 15, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Cisse said Monday that he is fully recovered from his groin injury, the Daily Mirror reports.

Cisse has missed the last six weeks due to the ailment, and while his return to fitness is certainly a boost to the club, his fantasy prospects are cloudy as long as Aleksandar Mitrovic and Seydou Doumbia are fit and available.
