Pienaar (hamstring) is on the bench for Saturday's match against Stoke City.

Pienaar's fantasy upside is fairly limited even when he starts, so a spot on the bench does nothing for his potential.

Steven Pienaar: Past News Updates   ( ▲ View most recent update )

October 14, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Pienaar will be available for Saturday's match against Stoke City after recovering from a hamstring injury, the Chronicle reports.

Manager David Moyes is a big fan of Pienaar, and he usually does get some playing time when he's fit, though he doesn't get involved in the attack much to have a high fantasy upside.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Pienaar (hamstring) has been ruled out of Saturday's match with West Bromwich Albion.

Pienaar pulled up in the 14th minute of last Saturday's match with Crystal Palace with a hamstring injury. He has been ruled out for Saturday's match with a possible return slated for after the international break. Duncan Watmore and Wahbi Khazri could feature in place of Pienaar.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Pienaar was subbed off with an apparent hamstring injury in the 14th minute of Saturday's match with Crystal Palace.

Pienaar was replaced by Duncan Watmore.

August 19, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Pienaar signed with Sunderland and his former Everton manager David Moyes.

Pienaar may be looking to return to his Everton form, but it's worth noting he's 34 years old. His effectiveness and playing time will likely be spotty as Moyes turns to other younger options in the midfield.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Pienaar (leg) is a late fitness test for Saturday's match against Watford.

Pienaar returned to training this week and it's possible he could play over the weekend. He's logged just five matches across all comps thanks to a long-term injury that held him out at first and recent leg problems that have continued. The 34-year-old is still capable of helping out when fit, but he's been increasingly injury prone of late.

January 10, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Pienaar (hamstring) registered 77 minutes as a starter in his season debut in Saturday's FA Cup clash with Dag & Red.

The so coveted return for the South African is a fact. He's still long ways from picking up full match fitness, though, and with explosive Toffees' attack he may not be of fantasy relevance this season, at all.

December 24, 2015

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Pienaar (hamstring) has been ruled out for Saturday's match against Newcastle but is expected to return within three weeks.

A return to full fitness hardly guarantees consistent playing time in Premier League matches for Pienaar, and he remains a weak fantasy option.
