Riviere is available for selection for Saturday's match against Chelsea.

After missing the first 21 Premier League matches with a meniscus tear, Riviere has played just two Premier League minutes this season. Despite being limited in training as he works back from this lengthy spell out of the squad, Riviere is available for selection against Chelsea, but his lack of match fitness makes him a risky fantasy play.

January 16, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Riviere (knee) is available off the bench Saturday against West Ham.

Riviere has dealt with the knee injury for quite some time, and while his return to fitness is a huge boost for Newcastle, he's unlikely to make a fantasy impact in the short term.

December 22, 2015

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Riviere is expected to return to training next week as he continues to recover from a knee injury.

The Frenchman has not played this season after suffering setbacks during his recovery from the long-term injury, but he is finally nearing a return to full fitness. Riviere is unlikely to enter the starting lineup upon returning, with the likes of Aleksander Mitrovic, Ayoze Perez and Papiss Cisse in the squad, but he will provide another option for what has been one of the most feeble attacks in the Premier League.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Rivière (knee) has had a few minor setbacks, but is not too far away form making his return for Newcastle, the Chronicle Live reports.

Rivière has not seen the pitch for a Newcastle fixture since May 24 last season. He'll probably be reintroduced to the game slowly as he has missed an extended period of time and the club doesn't want to risk re-injury.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Rivière (knee) is nearing a return to the squad for training, HITC Sport reports.

Rivière has yet to make an appearance this season, due to injury. The 25-year-old scored just one goal in his 23 Premier League appearances last season, however he'll look to fight back onto the first team once healthy and challenge Aleksandar Mitrovic and Ayoze Perez for the starting roles.

October 17, 2014

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Rivière has been ruled out of Newcastle's upcoming match against Leicester City, after suffering a knock in the build up to the match.

Rivière had been dropped from the squad in Newcastle's last match, already bringing his playing time into question for Newcastle's home clash with the Foxes. After already struggling to settle on Tyneside, the former Monaco striker is now going to have to fight back from both form and injury to see time on the pitch.

September 30, 2014

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Rivière only lasted 45 minutes in Newcastle's 0-1 loss to Stoke on Monday.

Rivière has had a rough go of it in his first six matches of the season, and is at risk of loosing minutes Papiss Cisse. The French striker has looked impatient on the ball and has been easily shrugged off by the powerful Premier League defenders.

August 31, 2014

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Rivière recorded an assist in Newcastle's 3-3 draw with Crystal Palace on Saturday.

Rivière has looked a little light for the strength of the Premier League so far, and was dispossessed three more times Saturday. The French import got on the scoresheet with an assist, which will hopefully build confidence as he continues to bed in to a new league.
