Riether returned from an illness to start and play all 90 minutes of Saturday's 2-2 draw with Hull City.

Riether is a very limited fantasy player, given Fulham's propensity to give up goals and his lack of contributions on the attack.

Riether was unable to play Saturday against Tottenham due to an illness, the club's official web site reports. "Sascha had a headache and a throat problem and it will be good next week again," manager Felix Magath said after the match.

As a member of one of the worst defensive units in the Premier League, Riether's fantasy value is understandably limited, to put it nicely.

Riether has been suspended for the next three matches by the FA. He will miss upcoming matches against Liverpool, Swansea City, and West Ham United. Riether will be eligible to return December 4 when Fulham host Tottenham.

Riether was among team leaders in assists and crosses attempted, so his absence is expected to have a negative effect on his teammates. His absence may also affect goalkeeper Maarten Stekelenburg as Riether was a leader on Fulham's back line.

Riether has been charged by the FA for violent conduct for stomping on Manchester United player, Adnan Januzaj, reports London 24. Riether is the first player to be charged under the new FA rule that allows a panel of three to review incidents during a game that may have been missed by the officiating crew and determine if action should be taken. Riether has until 6 P.M. Tuesday to respond to the charge.

Depending on what punishment is in store for Riether his fantasy value could take a hit. He has two assists on the season which gives the defender a little extra fantasy production.

Riether picked up an assist Monday as he sent in a ball in the 19th minute that Pajtim Kasami was able to volley into the back of the net for Fulham's first goal in the match.

Riether now has two assists on the season, and both have come in the last three matches. Riether continues to create chances for the Fulham forwards each week, but is dependant on their ability to finish for fantasy value.

Riether picked up an assist Saturday during Fulham's 1-2 defeat at the hands of Cardiff City. Riether got the assist on Bryan Ruiz's strike in the match's 45th minute.

Riether continues to send in plenty of crosses each week, but until Fulham can prove they can prevent their opponents from scoring, his vaule will remain low. The assist was Riether's first in Premier League play this season.
