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 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.

Henderson was able to start and play the full 90 minutes of Liverpool's 1-1 draw with Everton on Saturday.

Henderson put in the work rate fantasy owners are accustom to, despite being questionable with a slight hip injury. The English international managed the most touches in the match (80) which included four key passes. However, Henderson's fantasy upside is slightly depressed at the moment due to the defensive midfield position he is playing with Joe Allen (knee) sidelined.

Henderson faces a late fitness test ahead of Saturday's match against Everton due to a hip injury, manager Brendan Rodgers said Friday.

Henderson continues to play more of a defensive role for the Reds, though his passing keeps him relevant in plenty of fantasy leagues. With Joe Allen sidelined with with a knee injury, Henderson's holding position becomes even more important.

Henderson picked up a niggle during the international break, but was able to play all 90 minutes of Liverpool's 0-1 loss to Aston Villa on Saturday.

Henderson played alongside Steven Gerrard in a more defensive role to allow manager Brendan Rodgers to fit Lazar Markovic, Philip Coutinho, and Adam Lallana in the side. It is likely that Henderson will continue in this role over the next week or two while Joe Allen recovers from a mild knee injury. Despite the slightly deeper role, the box to box midfielder still has significant potential to rack up assists.
