Lambert was brought on in the 76th minute for Philippe Coutinho in Liverpool's 2-1 victory over Southampton on Sunday.

Lambert will likely find himself coming off the bench in most situations, with manager Brendan Rodgers preferring to juggle his crowded midfield and play Daniel Sturridge alone up front. With limited playing time, it's tough to justify spending anything but a bench spot on the veteran striker in most fantasy formats.

Lambert officially signed with Liverpool on Monday, the club's official web site reports.

Lambert moves over from Southampton, where he scored 117 goals in 235 appearances. It's difficult to see him scoring at such a high rate at Anfield, as Luis Suarez, Daniel Sturridge and Raheem Sterling will all presumably be above him on the depth chart.

Lambert appears close to a move to Liverpool that could be worth up to 4 million for Southampton, the Liverpool Echo reports.

Lambert is coming off a 13-goal, 10-assist season, making him one of only four players in the Premier League to reach double-digit totals in both categories (Steven Gerrard, Luis Suarez, Wayne Rooney). At 32 years old, he isn't likely on the cusp of a breakout campaign, especially with Luis Suarez, Daniel Sturridge and Raheem Sterling already on the the roster.

Lambert finished the 2013-2014 season with 13 goals and a team-high 10 assists in 37 appearances for Southampton.

Lambert led the Saints with 103 shots attempts (41 on goal) and his 13 goals ranked 11th among forwards in the category. Additionally, only Liverpool's Steven Gerrard and Luis Suarez topped Lambert's total of 10 helpers. As a result, the 32-year-old Lambert was recently named to England's World Cup squad and should be among the top options at striker in fantasy Premier League's next season.
