Gouffran was subbed off for youngster Rolando Aarons in the 67th minute of Newcastle's 3-3 draw with Crystal Palace on Saturday.

Gouffran was subbed off, when Newcastle were down 1-2, for a fresh set of legs in Aarons. The 28-year-old could be at risk of loosing playing time if he continues to disappoint in the final third, and Aarons puts together more good performances. The French winger has pace and can get himself into decent positions, but doesn't finish often enough to be anything but a bench option in fantasy.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Gouffran played 74 minutes of Newcastle's 0-2 loss to Manchester City on Sunday.

Gouffran was in question for the match due to a knee injury sustained in the preseason, but was able to start in manager Alan Pardew's new look squad. The pacey winger only managed one shot with 45 touches on the ball before being subbed off for youngster Rolando Aarons in the 74th minute. Gouffran, who scored six goals with three assists last season, is often a bit underrated but can serve as a decent low end fantasy option.

Gouffran (knee) will be assessed before Sunday's match with Manchester City, Chronicle Live reports.

While it's possible that Gouffran won't be able to play Sunday, this injury seems like a minor one and won't likely affect his status in the long term.

Gouffran (knock) could return for Newcastle's clash with Chelsea this Saturday, the Shields Gazette reports.

Gouffran has been struggling with an injury the last couple weeks and is still questionable for the big match at Stamford Bridge this weekend. With Loic Remy suspended, Newcastle will be hurting for attacking options this weekend, so Gouffran would be a huge boost should he be fit.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Gouffran scored in the 27th minute of Newcastle's 1-1 draw with Southampton on Saturday.

Gouffran's goal was his fifth this season, all but one of which have come since November 2. He is an interesting fantasy option given his recent propensity to find the back of the net and his relatively low price in most leagues.

Gouffran scored in the 36th minute of Newcastle's 2-1 win over West Brom on Saturday.

Gouffran has been on a bit of a scoring tear lately, finding the back of the net in three of the last four Premier League matches for Newcastle. He also has an assist in the game without a goal, giving him an excellent four-game run. He'll look to keep it going Wednesday at Swansea.
