Given didn't make an appearance for Republic of Ireland during Euro 2016, in what could be his last major international ride with the Green Army and remained with 134 caps. Ireland lost 2-1 out to France and were knocked out of the tournament at the round of 16.

Given was third up in Stoke's depth chart at goal last season. The 40-year-old veteran barely made three Premier League starts and six total across all competitions for a very low fantasy upside off the bench.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Given (groin) is starting on Sunday against West Ham.

Given returns from his injury to face one of the Premier League's most potent attacks, though they will be without Dimitri Payet.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Given (groin) is fit to play Sunday against West Ham.

Given has been out for a few weeks due to his injury, and with Jakob Haugaard struggling in his place, it wouldn't be surprising to see Given slot back into the starting XI for the season-finale.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Given was replaced at halftime of Saturday's match against Manchester City because of a suspected groin injury, according to the NBC Sports broadcast.

Given let up two goals in the first 45 and was replaced by Jakob Haugaard.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Given made two saves in Monday's 4-0 devastating loss to Tottenham.

Not the best moment for Given to get his first Premier League game for the Potters. The Spurs were deadly in transition and despite how bad it looks like, this game could've turned much uglier for him. The bad news for him, though, is that even if he keeps the starting position things aren't going to get any prettier because Stoke are visiting at the Etihad on Saturday and he'll have to face another top striker in the face of Sergio Aguero.

Given could return to training soon after recovering from knee surgery. "Shay isn't fit at the moment," manager Mark Hughes said Monday. Hes with the physios and we want to get him out on the training pitches sooner rather than later. Hes had an issue with his knee but were hopeful once he starts goalkeeping work which he hasnt been able to do lately, then hell be able get up to speed quickly.

Given's return to fitness will be a nice boost to Stoke's depth, though with Jack Butland firmly entrenched as the No. 1 keeper, Given's fantasy upside is very limited.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Given is progressing in his recovery from knee surgery, but will not be available for Saturday's match against Leicester City.

With Jack Butland firmly entrenched as the No. 1 keeper for Stoke, Given's fantasy upside is severely limited, even when fit.
