RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Lukaku said he spent a good deal of his summer training in order to be as fit as possible for the coming season after failing to reach his highest potential last season, reports the Daily Mail.

The striker said he would spent up to three hours a day training in the summer, and feels much fitter this year. He did not do the same preseason training ahead of the last season, but was still an impressive option for Everton. He scored twice in the team's win last weekend over Southampton.

Lukaku was brilliant on Saturday, scoring two goals on three shots in a 3-0 win over Southampton.

It's performances like these that make Lukaku look so impressive and Everton are going to need more games like this if they are to challenge for a spot in the Champions League. Everton's next match will be against Manchester City next Sunday as they face a dreadful run of games, playing five games in a row against teams that finished in the top-eight last season.

Lukaku got the start Saturday and grabbed an assist and recorded two shots in a 2-2 draw to Watford.

Lukaku was aggressive all game long as he won five aerial battles and got called offsides on three separate occasions. The aggressiveness is a good sign as he was coming into the season with a minor knock. Look for him to be a good source of assists and goals for the remainder of the campaign. He and Everton take on Southampton next Saturday.

Lukaku (hamstring) is starting Saturday against Watford.

Lukaku was given a late fitness test for his injury, but he has apparently passed fit enough to get the start. Watford have 10 new players this season, so their defensive familiarity may be a bit light, giving Lukaku plenty of opportunities at goal.

Lukaku (hamstring) must pass a late fitness test in order to play Saturday against Watford, manager Roberto Martinez said Thursday.

Lukaku apparently felt tightness in his hamstring last Tuesday in a friendly against Dundee, and Martinez intimated that it was nothing serious and that his removal was mostly precautionary. Unfortunately, it hasn't progressed as quickly as expected, leaving a potentially big void to fill Saturday. If Lukaku doesn't start, Steven Naismith and Kevin Mirallas (ankle) could lead the attack.

Lukaku felt tightness in his hamstring during Tuesday's friendly with Dundee, but manager Roberto Martinez said his removal after 32 minutes was precautionary. "Rom has obviously been playing a lot of minutes and it was important for him to get some sort of action," Martinez said. "After the first 25 minutes, he was feeling his legs were a little bit too heavy and we didn't want to take any risks. It's not a problem at all. I think he got a lot of good work between the two games we we've had up here, plus the games we had in Singapore. Now we have got a little period before the weekend to make sure he is ready and refreshed."

Lukaku is by far Everton's top offensive option this season, and his presence at the top of their attack keeps him as a very attractive fantasy option. With the issue not believed to be serious, Lukaku is expected to start the Premier League opener Aug. 8 against Watford at Goodison Park.

Lukaku continued his development into one of the most consistent goalscorers in England, with 20 goals and seven assists this season for Everton.

That is 17 goals or more in three straight seasons for the Belgian, who scored eight goals in just seven Europa League starts. Lukaku is under contract for four more seasons and is likely to reamain with Everton this summer, but AS Roma have shown a growing interest in the last few days.
