Occasional US international Geoff Cameron will be available again for the Week 12 match against Chelsea after recovering from a thigh injury.
Cameron was a frequent starter while Ryan Shawcross was out recovering from his long-term back injury. With Shawcross back and the Potters returning to health across the back line, we will get a better sense of who Mark Hughes will choose as his captain's first choice partner in the center of the defense. Philipp Wollscheid has been a frequent starter and is probably the odds on favorite to partner Shawcross with Cameron and Marc Muniesa vying to be the first option off the bench. Cameron's value should be downgraded appropriately in the minds of fantasy managers - he is not worth having on your roster outside of the very deepest of single-ownership formats. Nov 6 - 10:11 AM

Geoff Cameron will miss Stoke City's trip to Newcastle as he recovers from a quad strain suffered in the 2-0 loss to Watford last weekend.

With Ryan Shawcross returning to the Potters' line-up, it is likely that Cameron would have reverted to the bench even if he were healthy but we'll never know for sure as he misses out due to injury. The same could likely be said of Marc Muniesa who featured against Chelsea in mid-week for a suspended Erik Pieters and picked up an injury. The Potters could feature their first choice defense for the first time all season with Shawcross returning, Pieters back from suspension and Glen Johnson not listed on the injury report.

Stoke defender Geoff Cameron will assessed after limping off within ten minutes of todays’ game against Watford at The Britannia Stadium.

Early reports suggest that Cameron suffered a muscular strain. "It looks like he has pulled his thigh unfortunately which means he will probably be out for a couple of weeks," said Hughes. Watford secured an unlikely but much deserved win as Troy Deeney opened his Premier League account to help the Hornets collect all three-points. But while Stoke were poor across the board, the injury to the US international certainly played a part. "Losing defender Geoff Cameron disrupted us. We had to make changes at the back. We didn't deal with the two up front. We needed to be better than we were today." While his replacement – Marc Wilson – was at fault by losing possession during the build-up to the second goal.

The United States overcame two deficits, one early and one late, but a cracking volley by Paul Aguilar lifted Mexico over the USMNT 2-3 in a memorable match at the Rose Bowl.

The winner of the match would get their ticket punched for the Confederations Cup in 2017, so the always-intense battle between the US and Mexico was turned up a notch further as 90,000 strong witnessed an instant classic. The US defense suffered from an all-too-common habit of conceding early, as Chicharito grabbed his first ever goal against the Americans. Stoke City's Geoff Cameron would level things only five minutes later though, heading in from a Michael Bradley free kick. With the scoreline 1-1 after full time, it was Mexico again who went ahead when Oribe Peralta slotted home in the 96th minute. Three minutes after the countries switched sides for the second 15 minutes of extra time, substitute Bobby Wood latched on to a well weighted DeAndre Yedlin pass in the area and squirted the ball home. El Tri were the more dangerous side on the evening and would put the nail in the coffin in the 118th minute though when Aguilar smashed a volley past a helpless Brad Guzan.

Geoff Cameron returns to the Stoke City squad for Week 36 after missing Week 35 with a hamstring issue.

The American defender will be in contention to come back into the squad with Marc Wilson being absent due to a suspension picked up in Week 35 against Swansea. When he has played, Cameron has been a quietly effective fantasy option in formats that favor phantom points. Marc Muniesa, returning from injury himself, will be the primary competition for Cameron as Mark Hughes decides who will deputize for Wilson.

Geoff Cameron has missed training all week due to a hamstring and faces a late fitness check in an effort to play in Week 35 at the Liberty Stadium.

Geoff Cameron has been good when he's started recently but he is at risk to miss out on the Potters' trip to Wales to face Swansea on Saturday. With both Marc Muniesa and Geoff Cameron facing late fitness checks, you should probably focus your attention on Ryan Shawcross, Marc Wilson and/or Erik Pieters if you're choosing a Stoke City defender in salary cap leagues.
May 1 - 3:13 PM

Geoff Cameron has showed up two weeks in a row with strong phantom point efforts despite Stoke City winning neither match.

In Week 31 against Chelsea it was a defense-first effort from the occasional American international but Week 32 saw even better results with some attacking points added to the mix. Cameron contributed four successful crosses and two corners won going forward while managing three tackles won, a blocked shot and a pass intercepted as part of his defensive duties. With Southampton and their high tempo attack up next, Cameron will have lots of opportunities for tackles and interceptions.

Geoff Cameron was shown a red card for denying a clear goal-scoring opportunity as Stoke City lost 4-1 to Blackburn Rovers in the FA Cup.

It was a miserable day for the Potters. Already down Ryan Shawcross and Marc Wilson, they lost Marc Muniesa to injury and Cameron to suspension for their weekend Premier League match with Aston Villa. Throw in a humiliating 4-1 defeat to a mid-table Championship club that rotated 8 of 11 starters for the occasion and there isn't much positive that Mark Hughes can take from Saturday.
Feb 15 - 7:13 AM

American international Geoff Cameron put up big phantom numbers in Stoke City's 1-1 draw with Crystal Palace in Week 16.

With competition for places in the USA defense intensifying, Cameron's solid effort couldn't have come at a better time. Jurgen Klinsmann isn't likely tracking fantasy statistics but he will still like what he saw as the former Houston Dynamo player intercepted five passes, blocked two shots, and won two tackles as the Potters nicked a point on the road at Selhurst Park.

Geoff Cameron's turn as a center back for Stoke City did not go as the US international would have hoped with a 2-1 loss to lowly Burnley.

USMNT boss Jurgen Klinsmann has indicated that Geoff Cameron needs games for his club as a center back if he is going to secure a regular spot for the Red, White and Blue. He got that chance on Saturday but it didn't go well with Stoke City conceding two early goals and ultimately losing at home to relegation-threatened Burnley. The defensive issues can't be pinned entirely on Cameron but it certainly doesn't bode well for his chances at more starts once Marc Wilson returns to fitness.

Geoff Cameron didn't get a clean sheet or any meaningful attacking stats but his defensive work produced a solid fantasy score in systems that reward secondary statistics.

With Phil Bardsley absent due to injury, Cameron got a start and produced solid results. The American defender must have seemed like he was everywhere to the Hammers as he recorded three interceptions and six tackles won to go along with a successful cross. When Bardsley is ready to go it will be interesting to see who starts but until proven otherwise Cameron should be considered a reserve despite his solid work in Bardsley's stead.

Geoff Cameron will likely return to the Stoke City starting line-up for the Week 9 match-up against Southampton with the only question being where he might start.

The versatile Cameron can play center back, holding midfield and right back and two of those three spots have potential vacancies for the Potters this week. Phil Bardsley is doubtful due to a back issue and Andy Wilkinson has joined Milwall on loan which means the most likely option is Cameron deputizing at right back. The other alternative is holding midfield where Glenn Whelan is definitely out with a broken leg. Either way, Cameron is an OK option in that he's likely to start but not spectacular in that it seems unlikely that Mark Hughes' squad will keep a clean sheet or have the upper hand against the team that scored eight last weekend.

A groin injury is set to keep US international Geoff Cameron out of the Stoke City squad for the Week 3 trip to Manchester City.

With transfer rumors and rumors of his falling down Mark Hughes' pecking order for playing time all swirling around him, Geoff Cameron will miss out on Week 3 with a groin injury. The American defender has been linked with multiple moves away from Stoke City in recent days so this weekend could be an interesting one for him but apparently nothing interesting will be happening on the pitch.

Geoff Cameron is back in training and should be fit for Stoke City's trip to face Manchester United.

Cameron missed last week's draw against West Brom with a calf injury but should be fit for this weekend. Andy Wilkinson, who deputized for the American, will likely return to bench despite helping the club keep a clean sheet.

Geoff Cameron has returned from international duty with a "sore calf" that puts his availability for Stoke's match against West Brom in doubt.

Cameron has been ever present for Stoke this season, but could miss this weekend's match with a calf injury that saw him miss the United State's midweek match against Panama. Stoke could turn to Andy Wilkinson or play Marc Wilson or Robert Huth out of position if Cameron fails to recover.
