Higuain has tallied seven goals and three assists through 16 Serie A matches so far this season.

Higuain remains a deadly presence in the final-third, as he leads Napoli in assists and ranks second with seven goals. However, five of the Argentine's league goals came during a three-week span from late October to early November, evidencing a sort of up and down campaign from the veteran striker.

Higuain assisted on Jose Maria Callejon's 28th minute goal during Napoli's 1-0 win over Sassuolo on Sunday.

Higuain has yet to find the back of the net through five matches, but he has assisted on two. It's certainly not the start fantasy owners were looking for, but he's still active enough in the attack and should break through soon.

Higuain broke his World Cup goalless drought with an eighth minute goal during Argentina's 1-0 win over Belgium in the quarterfinals on Saturday.

Higuain took an errant pass that appeared to wobble before reaching him, but he was still able to blast it past Belgium keeper Thibaut Courtois for the lone-score of the game. Argentina are now through to the semis and will face the winner of Costa Rica vs. Netherlands.
