After starting a majority of Hertha Berlin's matches earlier this season, Kalou has come off the bench or been an unused substitute in six straight contests heading into the winter break.

Kalou has five goals in 13 appearances this season, though they've been quite spread out with one in September, two in October, one in November and one in December. Given his struggles to get in the starting XI, he makes for a fairly weak fantasy option.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Kalou scored two goals, including one from the penalty spot, during Hertha Berlin's 3-2 win over VfB Stuttgart on Friday.

After a slow start to the season, Kalou has now scored three goals in his last three games, as he seems to have solidified his place in the starting XI after an adjustment period following his late-summer move from Lille.

Kalou played all 90 minutes for the first time this season Sunday against FC Augsburg, though he took only one shot, failing to begin a goal streak after netting against VfL Wolfsburg last Wednesday.

Kalou's playing time has been relatively inconsistent, but he's started the last two games, which obviously increases his fantasy value. He scored 16 goals in 38 Ligue 1 appearances last season for Lille, so Hertha are certainly looking for him to find his scoring form quickly.

Kalou recorded Lille's only goal in Friday's draw with Bastia.

Kalou has supplied four goals and two assists over his past six outings. The veteran has now matched his total of 14 league goals from last season and still has two games to play.

Kalou bagged a hat-trick as Lille defeated Ajaccio 3-2 on Sunday.

Kalou scored two of his three goals from the penalty spot, which brought his total to 10 goals on the season. The Ivory Coast international has strung together a number of man-of-the-match performances this season and Sunday's showing certainly marked such an occasion.

Kalou scored in the 34th minute of Lille's draw with Rennes on Friday.

Kalou, who reaffirmed his future at Lille earlier in the week, contributed a header goal during the first half of Friday's match. The Ivory Coast international currently leads his team with seven scores on the season.

Kalou has ruled out a January exit from Lille, the Ligue 1 official website reports.

Kalou has been linked with a move back to the Premier League, but after a strong start to this season with third-place Lille, the Ivory Coast international has insisted his intention to stay put. Currently tied for the club lead with six goals, Kalou cleared up his immediate future by saying, "Why change clubs mid-season? We started well and I would like to continue until the end. We have a state of mind here which I will not find anywhere else."
