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.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

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.

Puncheon (illness) has been deemed fit for Saturday's match against Manchester United.

Puncheon was held out of the midweek Capital One Cup match against Manchester City due to the ailment, but it was never considered serious and he'll likely slot right back into the starting XI. He's been a solid fantasy performer this season in formats that include peripheral stats, though he has just two assists and no goals in 10 games.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Puncheon bagged a second assist of the season in Saturday's 2-1 win against Aston Villa.

Puncheon floated in a corner that was headed home by Scott Dann for the opening goal of the game. The winger, now playing in a number 10 role, has two assists in three games this season and, as he takes corners, will be good for at least seven to eight assists.

Puncheon registered his first assist of the season in Saturday's 3-1 win at Norwich.

Puncheon cleverly beat Sebastien Bassong on the left before crossing to an unmarked Wilfried Zaha to make it 1-0. Puncheon also provided the corner that set up the second goal and was pivotal to Palace gaining the three points.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Puncheon enjoyed the best all-around season of his Crystal Palace career, as he scored six goals and added seven assists while playing in all but one Premier League match.

The 28-year-old formed a strong partnership with Wilfried Zaha and Yannick Bolaise that lifted Palace to a 10the-place finish. Puncheon was rewarded with a four-year contract extension in May and will be with the club for the foreseeable future.
