Anita (hamstring) is making good progress after his injury in December's loss at West Bromwich Albion.

Anita has been recovering very well from his long-term hamstring injury. He's yet to resume full training, however, he has stepped up his comeback by running and partaking in light ball work. He'll most likely continue to recover and return to the the regular training pitch then back to the first team.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Anita is likely to miss multiple games because of the hamstring injury he suffered Monday against West Brom, the Shields Gazette reports.

Anita, who had to be taken off in the 27th minute due to the ailment, was replaced by Cheick Tiote, who could take over the starting job while Anita is sidelined.

Anita came off early in the first half of Saturday's match against West Brom with a knock, according to the Shields Gazette.

Cheik Tiote came on for Anita, and he could move into the starting lineup if the latter has to miss any time. That being said, the defensive midfield role they play doesn't lend itself to much fantasy production in many formats.

Anita picked up an assist in Saturday's 2-2 draw with Chelsea.

Anita's hopeful long ball was taken down by Ayoze Perez before he fired home to make it 1-0 in the 42nd minute. Anita plays a particularly deep midfield role for his new manager Steve McClaren and from a fantasy standpoint simply doesn't register on most managerial radars.

Anita scored in the 93rd minute of Newcastle's 4-1 win over Hull City on Saturday.

Anita scored his first goal of the season to cap off a big day for Newcastle. The Dutchman typically plays a defensive role, and therefore doesn't score often.

Anita got the assist on Loic Remy's 89th minute goal in Newcastle's 2-0 victory over Chelsea on Saturday.

Anita isn't on the field too often, nor does he get involved in scoring opportunities regularly enough to be a factor in anything but the deepest of fantasy formats.
