Puncheon scored with his only shot on goal in Sunday's 4-1 loss to Southampton.

After the Southampton defense made a clearance, Puncheon found the ball at his foot and drilled a first-time shot into the far corner. Despite being a dynamic player in a Palace midfield full of pace, Puncheon only managed two goals and three assists this year. He's still a quality player, though this season indicated that his quality may not translate into fantasy output.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Puncheon hammered the winner home on two shots (one on target) and added six crosses in 75 minutes of play in Saturday's 1-0 win over Norwich.

Jason punched in his first goal of the season with a fantastic strike that broke the deadlock and gave Palace their first win in Premier League since Dec 19. His return to the field, last week, after a two-month injury lay-off was felt immediately and Palace have grabbed a win and a draw in those two games. However, while Puncheon has been a key cog in the Eagles' midfield, he hasn't been as generous to his fantasy owners with only one goal, three assists and not even a ton of other stats that are usually rewarding in fantasy.

Puncheon was an unused substitute in Friday's FA Cup match against Reading, the first time he's been available since recovering from a hamstring injury suffered in early February.

Puncheon's return comes at a great time for Palace, who have struggled mightily in Premier League play without him. While he did not play Friday, he is very likely to get his starting job back when he returns to match fitness.

Puncheon (hamstring) will miss a couple more weeks as he returns from a long-term hamstring concern.

While Puncheon's statistics have gone down of late, tallying just one Premier League assist since Aug. 22, the versatile attacking player is a key fixture of the team's starting XI and his extended layoff could cause even more problems for a team that already struggled to score. With a busy period of fixtures coming—three matches in eight days—Puncheon likely won't return until the team's FA Cup match at Reading or against Leicester toward the end of the month.

Puncheon is expected to miss numerous games after suffering a hamstring injury during Tuesday's match against Bournemouth, manager Alan Pardew said Thursday.

Palace are already missing a few other key pieces in the attack, and Puncheon's absence will only make things worse. That being said, he hasn't been quite as strong a fantasy option this season, as Yohan Cabaye has taken on most of the free-kick duties, but it's still a big hit to the Eagles.

Puncheon attempted four shots, made a pair of key passes and provided five crosses in Tuesday's loss to Bournemouth.

The winger was active and involved in the attack, but he was held off the scoresheet for the 11th straight match. Puncheon is a viable option in formats that reward action stats, but he will need to get back among the goals to justify selection in formats that don't. He will look to snap out of his slump Saturday versus Swansea.

Puncheon tallied an assist while attempting one shot (one on target) in Monday's 1-1 draw with Everton.

Puncheon's 76th minute corner kick found the outstretched head of Scott Dann to open the scoring, but the goal wouldn't hold up as Everton found the equalizer five minutes later. The 29-year-old now has no goals and three assists on the season in 15 Premier League matches this season and has worked as an effective distributor and a strong corner taker for the Eagles.

Puncheon (illness) is starting Saturday against Manchester United.

Puncheon missed the midweek Capital One Cup match due to the ailment, but he was always expected to play Saturday and will slot right back into his regular starting spot.
