Lukaku had three shots off target, three crosses and four key passes in the 1-0 loss to West Brom on Saturday.

Lukaku has cooled off quite a bit of late. He's only scored once in seven games across all competitions since Jan 6. The striker, though, has 16 goals and five assists on 26 Premier League games and with an average of 3.5 shots per game in a high-octane offense he continues to be a top option on any given week.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Lukaku scored one goal on four shots Saturday against Stoke City.

Lakaku was able to overcome back pain that forced him from Evertonís match earlier in the week. Lakuku had plenty of chances to add to his one goal but was unable to capitalize. Lakuku now has 16 league goals and faces a West Brom squad Saturday that has conceded 32 league goals.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Lukaku (back) is starting Saturday against Stoke City.

Lukaku was removed from Wednesday's match against Newcastle after getting kneed in the back, but he's apparently able to play through the pain. Given the situation, it's possible he doesn't play the full 90 minutes, though Lukaku is certainly able to provide plenty of goals in less time.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Lukaku (back) is a late fitness test against Stoke City, but manager Roberto Martinez believes he will play.

Lukaku had trouble walking without pain after taking a knee to the back of Everton's mid-week clash with Stoke City. However, as the week progressed, the Belgian's back improved considerably. He has 15 goals in Premier League play and if he missed the match, it would be devastating for Everton. Arouna Kone and Oumar Niasse are potential options up front if Lukaku is ruled out.

Lukaku could miss Saturday's match against Stoke City after suffering a back injury Wednesday against Newcastle. "Rom couldn't really walk - he got a knee in the back and found it painful," manager Roberto Martinez said. "He tried to run it off at the end of the first half but couldn't. We're playing on Saturday and it's difficult to tell if he will make it, but it's not a major problem apart from the impact and the neurological reaction down into his legs."

Lukaku came off at halftime Wednesday, and his absence would be a major blow to the Toffees given his goal-scoring ability. Lukaku's 15 goals tie him with Harry Kane for second in the Premier League, trailing only Jamie Vardy's 18. Arouna Kone replaced Lukaku on Wednesday and could get a start Saturday, though new-signee Oumar Niasse is also a possibility.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Lukaku took two shots and provided one key pass before he was removed from Wednesday's match versus Newcastle with a suspected back injury.

The striker appeared to take a knee to the back during the first half, and he was clearly hampered before the Toffees made the change at the half. It is unclear how severe the injury is at the moment, leaving Lukaku as a question mark for Saturday's match versus Stoke.

Lukaku (ankle) is starting Wednesday against Manchester City.

Lukaku suffered the injury during last week's League Cup match against City, and he was held out of the weekend FA Cup tie to help him recover. He'll lead the line against a Man City defense that will be centered by Nicolas Otamendi and Martin Demichelis, who have barely played together this season.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Lukaku (ankle) has been deemed fit for Wednesday's Premier League match against Manchester City.

Lukaku suffered the injury during the team's league cup match last week, and he was held out of Saturday's FA Cup tie with Dag & Red. However, he returned to training Monday and is expected to lead the line against a fairly good Man City defense. Lukaku enters the midweek match co-leading the Premier League with his 15 goals.
