After missing three league matches due to a hamstring issue, Steven Naismith returned to Everton's starting XI and promptly delivered a goal and an assist in the Toffee's win over QPR Monday night.
Naismith got off to a red-hot start to begin the season, scoring once in each of Everton's first three matches, but could only add another between then and this past weekend as his form dipped and then his hamstring put him on the shelf. Naismith will never be a flair pick at the forward position but he is generally undervalued in most fantasy formats. In the Yahoo game, he can also pad his numbers with some non-scoring categories that many other forwards are rarely able to do, speaking to his workman's like approach that Roberto Martinez recognizes. He may not repeat his 20 point Yahoo haul this weekend away to Southampton, but a home game against Stoke to follow after promises plenty of chances. Dec 18 - 10:10 AM
