After missing out completely last match due to a leg injury, manager Slaven Bilic revealed that Payet will return for Sunday's match at Manchester City.

This is obviously big news for West Ham, but how much Payet plays will be up for debate. Also, this isn't the best matchup for Payet to return in, playing at the Etihad.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Payet has picked up a leg injury and is unavailable for Sunday's match with Bournemouth.

Payet's absence hurts West Ham as he is their star player and primary free-kick taker. Although his injury does not sound serious, he will miss the Bournemouth match at the very least.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Payet is not in the 18-man squad for Sunday's match with Bournemouth.

Payet is not available for Sundays match after coming on as a substitute in Monday's 2-1 loss to Chelsea. Michail Antonio and Gokhan Tore will start on the wings for the Hammers.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Payet came on in the 67th minute and attempted two shots (one on target) in Monday's defeat to Chelsea.

The creative midfielder was given an extended holiday due to France's long run in the Euros, but was deemed fit enough to both crack the 18-man squad and feature in the first match back. His best opportunity was a free kick from a goal-scoring area that clanked harmlessly off the wall. It won't be long until he returns to the starting XI, with supporters likely eager to see him help open Olympic Stadium in Premier League play next weekend against Bournemouth.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Payet has been included in the 18-man match day squad for Monday's match with Chelsea.

Payet is in the team and could be a dangerous option off the bench for Slaven Bilic's side. He may not be starting because of his long summer with the French national team at Euro 2016. When on the pitch, Payet has high fantasy value. Andre Ayew and Enner Valencia are starting at wing for the Hammers.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Payet could feature on Monday against Chelsea, though he is not fit enough for 90 minutes, manager Slaven Bilic said on Thursday.

Payet's preseason was delayed due to France's long run in the European Championship, and while he is back in full training, it's obviously he can't play an entire match yet. Given that he may be needed later in the game if it's close, he seems unlikely to start.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Payet, who picked up a knock, is set to resume training, but will still miss Thursday's UEL contest against Domzale.

Given that he has yet to resume training, Payet's availablity against Chelsea in the EPL season opener is certainly in doubt. Last season, the midfielder racked up nine goals and 12 assists while also averaging over nine crosses per match. Despite the injury, fantasy owners in season long formats will still want to consider picking up the 29-year-old and keeping him on the bench for Week 1.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Payet appeared in all seven matches (six starts) for France during Euro 2016, scoring three goals on 18 shots (six on target) and adding two assists, whopping 53 crosses and 18 dribbles. He improves to six goals in 26 caps. France suffered an upset 1-0 extra-time loss to Portugal in the final capturing the silver medals.

Payet was the driving force for France in the beginning of Euro 2016 when the team was still searching for its identity. He turned in phenomenal numbers and had an enormous fantasy upside. However the length of the season took its toll and he slowed down a bit for the most critical games even becoming an early substitution (57th minute) in the final against Portugal.
