Palacio enjoyed a second-half resurgence to finish the season with 12 goals and five assists in 35 starts.

The Argentine finished with fewer than 17 goals for the first time in three years, but was on pace for even less than his final tally before racking up 10 goals and three assists in the final three months of the season. Now 33 years of age, Palacio's time as Inter's main striker is waning and he could see significantly fewer minutes next season if and when the club brings in new attackers via the transfer market.

He won't have to do it alone, but Edin Dzeko will likely be a major contributor if Bosnia and Herzegovina can advance to the knockout stage.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Palacio struck again on Sunday, scoring Inter's only goal in a 1-1 draw with Cesena.

Palacio is really hitting his stride in recent weeks and now has five goals in his last five starts after only registering two goals all season beforehand. He will look to continue this solid run of form Sunday versus Sampdoria.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Palacio attempted two shots and scored in the 72nd minute as Inter came from two goals down to draw with Napoli on Sunday.

The Argentine striker still only has six goals in all competitions for his club this season, but four of them have come in his last four starts. He will look to continue his recent run of form next week against Cesena.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Palacio came on in the 73rd minute and finishing with two shots on goal during Inter's 1-0 loss to Fiorentina on Sunday.

Palacio has three goals in 22 Serie A appearances this season, though two of them have come after the winter break. He's taken multiple shots in each of his last three appearances, but his playing time is a bit sketchy now, with his showing off the bench Sunday being preceded by an unused substitute tag last weekend against Cagliari.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Palacio was unable to extend his goal streak to three during Inter Milan's scoreless draw with Empoli on Saturday.

Palacio netted against Lazrio on Dec. 21 and then again against Genoa on Jan. 11, his only goals this season. While Palacio gets plenty of starts (13 of 17 games), he just doesn't put enough balls in the back of the net to be a big fantasy contributor.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Palacio picked up his second assist of the season in Inter's 2-2 draw with Hellas Verona on Sunday.

Palacio has struggled to be much of an offensive contributor this season, with his first assist coming back on Sept. 28 against Cagliari. He is still looking for his first goal of the campaign, making it pretty unlikely that he'll get close to the 17 goals he scored last season.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Palacio has been used as a second-half sub in two of Inter's Serie A matches this season and he has yet to attempt a shot.

Palacio went the distance with Argentina at the World Cup, which delayed his preseason training for the Serie A season. However, it's only a matter of time before his legs are back under him as he looks to best last year's total of 17 league goals.

Palacio scored a back heel goal late in the second half as Inter topped rival AC Milan on Sunday.

That was a huge goal for Palacio and Inter.
