Henderson picked up his fifth assist of the season against Swansea City on Monday.

In addition to the five assists, the 24-year-old also has two goals on the season as he performs in the shadows of Liverpool's talented strikers. His next opportunity to add on to the these totals will be against Leicester City on New Years Day, a team that is conceding a lackluster 1.63 goals per match.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Henderson took two shots and scored his second goal of the Premier League season during Liverpool's 3-1 win over Leicester City on Tuesday.

Henderson has now scored two goals in the last three matches after netting against Ludogorets in the Champions league on Nov. 26. Despite the positive play of late, Henderson remains a fairly unreliable fantasy option given that he plays mostly in a holding midfield role.

Henderson tucked the ball home from a tight angle in Wednesday’s 2-2 draw against Ludogorets Razgrad in the Champions League.

Henderson latched onto a sumptuous ball in behind the home defence from Raheem Sterling before slotting home. Henderson had been a doubt ahead of the match with an illness that kept him out of Sunday’s 3-1 loss to Crystal Palace.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Henderson, who missed last Sunday's loss to Crystal Palace because of an illness, is in the squad for Wednesday's Champions League match at Ludogorets, the Liverpool Echo reports.

Henderson's return will be a solid boost for a Liverpool side desperate for a spark. However, he still plays a primarily defensive role, which limits his fantasy upside in many formats.

Henderson will not play Sunday against Crystal Palace due to an illness.

Henderson picked up a hamstring injury while on international duty, though it was considered mild and is not the reason for his absence Sunday. He should be good to go Nov. 29 against Stoke City.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Henderson is dealing with a minor hamstring injury, according to the Liverpool Echo.

England manager Roy Hodgson made the announcement after Tuesday's friendly against Scotland, so Henderson will likely need to be examined by the club's physios before it is determined whether he can play Saturday against Crystal Palace.

Liverpool and Henderson have begun discussions about a new contract for the midfielder, reports Sky Sports.

Henderson's current agreement expires in the summer of 2016. Both he and Raheem Sterling are expected to negotiate new contracts with the club amid transfer interest from other teams.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Henderson had a goal and an assist during Liverpool's 2-1 win over West Brom on Saturday.

Henderson played a more advanced role than he usually does and he was fully in the thick of the attack, playing a quick give-and-go with Adam Lallana for the latter's goal in the 45th minute before banging home his first goal of the season in the 61st minute. Henderson's fantasy value is fully dependent on how forward he can get, so if he continues to play the role he did Saturday, he could make a difference in plenty of fantasy leagues.
