Sissoko lit up the stats sheet with an assist, four shots (two on target), five crosses and four dribbles in Sunday's 5-1 season finale win over Tottenham.

Sissoko ends the season on an exceptionally high note. He was all over the field cutting through, the typically outstanding, Spurs' defense like a hot knife through butter and could be very disappointed to only grab a single assist in a high-scoring game like that. The 26-year-old midfielder will finish the season with a goal and seven assists in 37 Premier League starts.

April 20, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Sissoko tallied an assist, one shot on target, four crosses, four dribbles and a yellow card in Tuesday's 1-1 draw to Man City.

Sissoko's effort and energy fell just a little short on quality and effectiveness otherwise he could've dethroned the Champions just by himself. He made an unbelievable miss that could come at the price of relegation in a few weeks. Nevertheless, he seems to be peaking in the perfect moment for the Magpies' final sprint to salvation. Also after a long dry spell he picked up a goal and an assist in back-to-back games to get his season tally to a goal and six assists and he may have a chance to continue this run exploiting some of the Liverpool's defensive lapses.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Sissoko recorded his first goal of the season in Newcastle's 3-0 win over Swansea on Saturday.

Playing in more of a defensive role, Sissoko doesn't provide much from a fantasy perspective. While playing in all but one match this season, Sissoko has one goal and five assists.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Sissoko tallied an assist in Sunday's 2-0 victory over Liverpool.

As stoppage time wound to a close, Sissoko got the ball up the right flank and turned upfield, finding Georginio Wijnaldum for a beautiful goal to put the game out of reach in the 93rd minute. Sissoko doesn't have a goal this season, but he does now have five assists in 14 Premier League matches this season.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Sissoko registered an impressive three assists in Newcastle's exciting 6-2 win over Norwich City on Sunday.

Sissoko's three helpers all came over the course of Newcastle's first four goals, as his final ball split the Norwich defense regularly Sunday. The catalyst of the Magpies' eye-opening display, Sissoko now boasts four assists on the campaign, which trails only three Premier League players. Although the Frenchman has yet to score, his confidence should be brimming ahead of this weekend's Tyne-Wear derby.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Sissoko picked up an assist in Saturday's 2-1 loss to Watford.

Sissoko played in Daryl Janmaat who slotted home from close range in the 62nd minute. The French midfielder has yet to make a big impact this season and may look for an exit in the January transfer window if the side's woeful form continues.

August 29, 2015

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Sissoko took one shot (none on target) and was issued a yellow card in Saturday's 1-0 loss to Arsenal.

Sissoko took the only shot for the Magpies, who were left with 10 men for the vast majority of the game. Sissoko was also cautioned for the first time this season after picking up nine yellow's last season. Discipline could be an issue further down the road for the 26-year-old France international.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Sissoko (groin) is starting Saturday against Arsenal.

Sissoko missed the last two games due to the ailment, but he apparently passed his late fitness test to get back into the lineup. He will line up on the right wing, though he may have his hands full defensively with Arsenal starting Alexis Sanchez and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain out wide.
