Lukaku failed to get off a shot, but made four key passes in the 2-1 win over QPR Sunday.

The disappointing season continues for Lukaku and it appears he may have picked up a knock in the match on his knee being subbed off in the 67th minute. Lukaku still does have eight goals and four assists, so it hasn't been a complete disaster for the Belgian. The international break should give Lukaku enough time to heal for Everton's next match on April 4th vs. Southampton.

Lukaku grabbed a goal and an assist on four shots in the 3-0 win over Newcastle Sunday.

Ironically, this is the second time Lukaku has grabbed an assist and a goal against Newcastle this season, so clearly he likes something about the matchup. The downside is those two goals and two assists consists of half his assisting production and a quarter of his goal production on the season, with eight goals and four assist on the season respectively. Lukaku has a good matchup next Sunday when Everton take on a poor defense at QPR.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Lukaku only got off one shot and made a key mistake that led to a Stoke goal in the 2-0 loss Wednesday.

Lukaku has been struggling mightily this season and his struggles coincide with Everton's struggles as well. If Lukaku doesnt find some form, Everton will continue to lose and find themselves in a relegation battle. Even with his struggles, he still has seven goals and three assists on the season. He'a also fourth in the league with 81 shots, so if he continues to get chances he should finish one off sooner rather then later. Everton and Lukaku have a ten day break before they host Newcastle next Saturday.

Lukaku led Everton with two shots in the 2-0 loss to Arsenal Sunday.

It was a tough game for Everton as they really couldn't get anything going offensively. Lukaku did make six completed dribbles, but was dispossessed on four occasions as well. The struggles continue and it's now or never for Lukaku as the schedule finally lightens up a bit for the Belgian. Everton and Lukaku take on Stoke this upcoming Wednesday.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Lukaku had his best game in weeks, getting off nine shots (0 on goal) and contributing an assist in the 2.2 draw to Leicester Sunday.

While the nine shots are encouraging, the zero on goal just emphasizes how much Lukaku has been struggling as of late. Hopefully the assist will get things going for Lukaku and he'll look to get out of his scoring slump next Sunday against Arsenal.

Lukaku said he hopes to leave Everton to play for a top club, reports Sky Sports.

The Belgian striker only joined Everton full time last summer, and hasn't matched his prior season's performance yet this year. Lukaku joined Everton from Chelsea.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Lukaku got off four shots with three on goal, but was unable to score in the 1-0 loss to Chelsea Wednesday.

Lukaku is just off his game right now as he blew a point blank range shot that would have given Everton the lead late in the match. He only has one goal in his last 11 matches and he desperately needs to get back into form to move Everton up the table. The shot production and activity is a good sign, so look for him to possibly bounce back next weekend when Everton host Leicester on the 22nd.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Lukaku failed to record a shot in the 0-0 draw to Liverpool Saturday and was caught offsides four times.

Lukaku has had a disappointing season and his ability to stay onsides has been a big reason why. He now leads the Premier League with 28 offsides penalties and the player in second (Diego Costa) only has 20. Clearly the lack of goals is getting to Lukaku's head and he is pressing by being offsides so often. He'll look to perform well this upcoming Wednesday when Everton take on Lukaku's former squad in Chelsea.
