Benteke scored nine goals and added three assists while starting just 18 matches in all competitions last season.

After being acquired from Aston Villa for a hefty fee, much was expected from Benteke, but he made most of his appearances off the bench after the managerial position was taken over by Jurgen Klopp, who preferred the likes of Philippe Coutinho, Roberton Firmino and Daniel Sturridge up top. Benteke is expected to leave the club this summer in search of first-team football and will likely find himself in a different shirt come the start of the season.

Mondogoal Fantasy Soccer: Perfect Million Picks

With Liverpool possibly resting Daniel Sturridge this weekend to prepare for next week's Europa League final, Christian Benteke could be key to winning big on Mondogoal.

July 9, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Benteke appeared twice off the bench for Belgium during Euro 2016, taking one shot on target and one dribble while moving his international record to 28 caps and six goals. Belgium suffered a shocking 3-1 upset defeat at the hands of Wales and were knocked out of the tournament in the quarterfinals.

Benteke started last season as a first choice striker for Liverpool, though, he faded away and ran out of favor. The 25-year-old forward, though, was productive with nine goals, three assists and an average of 2.1 shots per game in 29 Premier League appearances (14 starts) regardless of laying third in the depth charts behind both Daniel Sturridge and Divock Origi in the second part of the season.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Benteke is in the search of more frequent first-team football and could be ready to leave Liverpool in order to find more playing time, reports the Daily Mail.

Benteke has not been the preferred choice at Liverpool under manager Jurgen Klopp, and has typically been chosen behind Divock Origi and Daniel Sturridge. While Benteke isn't expected to force a transfer he has been clear that he is searching for more playing time.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Benteke headed in the equalizer on his lone shot off the bench in Wednesday's 1-1 draw to Chelsea.

With Liverpool battling on two fronts, Benteke has seen a fairly extensive amount of playing time of late. He's fully taken advantage of the situation scoring two goals and an assist in his last four games. Despite only 13 Premier League starts this season, with Liverpool staring at the huge Europa League final on May 18, he may be given another start in Championship Sunday versus the inferior Baggies.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Benteke was the lone forward to appear for Liverpool in their 2-0 win Sunday over Watford. He assisted on the first goal scored by Joe Allen.

With Daniel Sturridge starting in Europa League play Thursday, Benteke was given the start and played 90 minutes against Watford. It's a toss up for who Jurgen Klopp will start against Chelsea midweek.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Benteke came on at the half and scored on his only shot during Sunday's loss to Swansea.

Benteke did hardly anything statistically in his 45 minutes of action, but he was on hand to nod home a corner kick to bring Liverpool within one. He hasn't started a match since February, and it will be difficult to endorse his selection for fantasy purposes if he continues to come off the bench.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Benteke (knee) is a late fitness test ahead of Saturday's match against Newcastle.

Benteke, who hasn't played since March 20, has returned to training with the first-team. However, manager Jurgen Klopp seems more reserved as to Benteke's progress. Even when fit, Benteke's made just 12 starts against 13 appearances off the bench in the Premier League. His first season on Merseyside has been a massive disappointment, scoring seven goals in the Premier League, but hasn't had the same kind of influence the team thought he would when he was brought in for tens of millions of pounds over the summer.

March 31, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Benteke (knee) was unable to train Thursday and appears unlikely to play Saturday against Spurs, the Liverpool Echo reports.

Benteke did not play for Belgium over the international break due to the ailment, and his absence will all but assure Daniel Sturridge keeps his starting job.
