Benteke headed home the final goal in stoppage time in Saturday's 3-2 win at Sunderland. He finished with a ridiculous eight shots and 10 aerials won.

With little defense played in the match, Benteke was a force up front. It was a good sign from Benteke, who's had somewhat of a slow start to his time at Palace. He'll have a tough match at Everton next.

Fantasy Premier League: Sunday Cheat Sheet

Spurs are the heaviest favorites and expected to score the most goals during Sunday's four-game Premier League slate, which means fantasy owners should have Erik Lamela on their radars.

Christian Benteke: Past News Updates   ( ▲ View most recent update )

September 10, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Benteke scored with his only shot in Saturday's 2-1 win at Boro.

His first goal since arriving at Palace, Benteke showed the brute power that Liverpool thought they were getting last season. Against lesser teams such as Middlesbrough, Benteke has the ability to physically dominate CBs. He's worth a strong look for next week against a struggling Stoke defense.

August 28, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Benteke created two chances in Crystal Palace's 1-1 draw at home to Bournemouth on Saturday.

No, Benteke did not score a hat-trick on his debut but he was quietly effective and could have had himself an assist if Yohan Cabaye had slotted home his penalty in the first half. With ammunition from Andros Townsend, Wilfried Zaha, Cabaye et al, there's little doubt that Benteke will be a success.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Benteke is starting on Saturday against Bournemouth.

In his first Premier League action for his new club, Benteke will start up front with Connor Wickham, as Andros Townsend and Jason Puncheon start on the wings. Benteke has tremendous fantasy upside when he gets the playing time, which should be the case now with the Eagles.

August 26, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Benteke started midweek for Crystal Palace in the League Cup, but may not be ready for another start so soon this Saturday against Bournemouth.

Having not seen much time in the preseason, it appears Benteke isn't ready to take on a full 90 minutes after only making it 45 minutes in the League Cup win. All signs point to Connor Wickham getting the start with Benteke likely being used as a substitute Saturday.

August 20, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Benteke signed a four-year contract with Crystal Palace on Saturday after transferring from Liverpool.

Benteke's move from Aston Villa to Liverpool was a total bust, as he found himself stuck behind Daniel Sturridge, Roberto Firmino and Divock Origi. His fantasy upside explodes with the move to Selhurst Park, as he is fully expected to start as soon as he acclimates, pushing Conor Wickham to the bench.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Liverpool and Crystal Palace have agreed to a 32 million transfer fee for Benteke and the forward is due to undergo a medical ahead of finalizing the move, reports the Daily Mail.

Benteke traveled to London Thursday afternoon to have the medical after Crystal Palace's revised bid was accepted by Liverpool. The London club's original offer was rejected by the Reds earlier this week.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Liverpool rejected a transfer bid of 30 million in total value from Crystal Palace for Benteke, reports the Daily Mail.

Liverpool has been set on recovering 32.5 million on any transfer of the striker, and are also reportedly seeking more of that valuation as guaranteed payment. The striker scored 10 times in 42 matches last season, and speculation continues to swirl around his future.
