Lukaku had a fantastic game Saturday, grabbing an assist and the game winning 93rd minute goal in the 2-1 win over West Ham.

Lukaku also had eight shots in the match and was a menace all game long. This was Lukaku's third goal-assist game of the season, which shows just how talented of a player he can be. He'll look to continue his strong form in the final match against Tottenham next Saturday.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Lukaku scored on a penalty and got off four shots in the 3-2 loss to Aston Villa Saturday.

While Lukaku has been fantastic in the Europa League, scoring eight goals in his last five Europa matches, his Premier League form has been far less impressive grabbing only one goal since January. Lukaku and Everton won't have double duties next season as they are a mid-table side and he'll be able to focus much more on the Premier League and should exceed his nine goal total he has posted thus far this season. Lukaku finishes up the season against three poor defenses (Sunderland, West Ham, Spurs), so he may be a good option for fantasy to have a strong finish. Everton host Sunderland next Saturday in their next match.

Lukaku (hamstring) is available off the bench for Saturday's match against Burnley.

Lukaku has been battling his hamstring injury for a few weeks and was a serious doubt for Saturday's tie. While he is healthy enough to make the bench, Arouna Kone will get the start up top.

Lukaku (hamstring) is expected to play Saturday against Burnley, manager Roberto Martinez said Tuesday.

Lukaku was close to returning last weekend against Swansea but wasn't quite up to full fitness. However, he's been training with the group early this week, which will allow him to return in a fine matchup for fantasy purposes.

Lukaku (hamstring) is not in the 18-man squad to face Swansea City on Saturday.

Manager Roberto Martinez described Lukaku as 50/50 for much of the week, but the Belgian striker hadn't even joined first-team training as of Thursday. Arouna Kone will start in Lukaku's place.

Lukaku (hamstring) has not rejoined full training yet and is considered 50/50 for Saturday's match against Swansea City. "At this stage of the season we need to be certain he is well healed," manager Roberto Martinez said Thursday. "It is not a major problem and he has been working well in the last two days, even though he hasn't joined the group yet."

It certainly isn't good news that Lukaku hasn't even joined the group yet, and even if he does manage to do that Friday, it's hard to believe that he will be fully match fit by Saturday. If he is unable to play, Arouna Kone will likely get the start in his place.

Lukaku is expected to return from his hamstring injury to play Saturday against Swansea City, manager Roberto Martinez said Tuesday.

Lukaku was unable to play for Belgium over the last international break due to the ailment and then missed out on last weekend's match against Southampton. While Martinez did not guarantee Lukaku would play, as he's still not training fully with the group yet, he was very optimistic that his starting striker would return.

Lukaku will not play Saturday against Southampton because of a hamstring injury.

Lukaku suffered the injury before the international break and was unable to play for Belgium. Unfortunately, the time off wasn't enough and he'll have to wait until next Saturday against Swansea City to return. Arouna Kone will start in his place against the Saints.
