It wasn’t all that long ago when Papiss Cisse was one of the hottest fantasy premier league prospects around, but after a disappointing season he has seen his ownership rate fall to almost non-existant levels.
Newcastle’s fall from grace has been well documented in the press over recent weeks and with rumours of unrest in the dressing room they look to be falling apart with only two games left to go.
The Magpie’s currently sit just one place and three points clear of the drop zone and are in serious need of three points to help ease their relegation worries.
While many fantasy managers will not be too keen on bringing in the Newcastle striker those who need to claw back points and who are in need of a differential will need to be brave and Cisse could just be the man for the job.
The Senegalese striker has only managed eight goals this season, which is down on last years high of thirteen but having notched up a goal and an assist in his last five he has shown he can still do a job.
This one is certainly a risky option for fantasy managers but like we siad this is the time of the season when bravery can be rewarded, Newcastle travel to the already relegated QPR this weekend and with goals and points a must the return of Hatem Ben Arfa could just help Cisse get to goals and points they badly need.
Like we siad this one is not for the faint of heart but it’s all or nothing time and remember it doesn’t matter if you finish two or twenty points behind the leader you have still lost, so don’t be afraid to go for it!
