Benteke came on at the half and scored on his only shot during Sunday's loss to Swansea.

Benteke did hardly anything statistically in his 45 minutes of action, but he was on hand to nod home a corner kick to bring Liverpool within one. He hasn't started a match since February, and it will be difficult to endorse his selection for fantasy purposes if he continues to come off the bench.

Christian Benteke: Past News Updates   ( ▲ View most recent update )

April 22, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Benteke (knee) is a late fitness test ahead of Saturday's match against Newcastle.

Benteke, who hasn't played since March 20, has returned to training with the first-team. However, manager Jurgen Klopp seems more reserved as to Benteke's progress. Even when fit, Benteke's made just 12 starts against 13 appearances off the bench in the Premier League. His first season on Merseyside has been a massive disappointment, scoring seven goals in the Premier League, but hasn't had the same kind of influence the team thought he would when he was brought in for tens of millions of pounds over the summer.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Benteke (knee) was unable to train Thursday and appears unlikely to play Saturday against Spurs, the Liverpool Echo reports.

Benteke did not play for Belgium over the international break due to the ailment, and his absence will all but assure Daniel Sturridge keeps his starting job.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Benteke left Belgium's squad for next week's match versus Portugal after suffering a knee injury, the Liverpool Echo reports.

The striker seemingly cannot catch a break at the moment, as he had struggled to find playing time for his club but appeared set to feature for his country. After the injury blow, however, he will return to England and receive treatment in hopes of being available for next week's match versus Tottenham.

West Ham has singled out Benteke as one of their priority transfer targets this summer, reports Sky Sports.

West Ham is looking for players that will help them achieve their European dreams, and they see Benteke as a top European forward. Reports suggest the team may be willing to spend up to £40 million to land a top forward like the Liverpool player.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Benteke has voiced his determination to earn a starting spot in Liverpool's first team after scoring his first goal of 2016 to help Liverpool defeat Crystal Palace 2-1, reports the Guardian.

The striker hasn't started a game in the Premier League since early January. Rumors suggest there are clubs interested in signing him away from England, but he said his desire is to fight for a spot in Liverpool's starting XI despite the challenging times.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Benteke converted a penalty in the 96th minute and took three shots (three on target) off the bench in Sunday's 2-1 victory over Crystal Palace.

After coming on in the 80th minute, Benteke led a sustained onslaught of the Palace goal—despite Liverpool playing with just 10 men. The icing on the cake was a penalty, won and converted by him to secure the three points for an undermanned side. The goal was his first of 2016 (eight matches) and he's increasingly seen himself used as a substitute, last starting on Jan. 2 against West Ham. He's up to seven goals and two assists in 23 Premier League matches this season.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Benteke was unused sub in the 2-2 draw to Sunderland on Saturday.

With Firmino bruising lately, Benteke's inconsistent play has dropped him out of favor for the starting job upfront. Until things change, the latter doesn't bring a whole lot of fantasy value off the bench in most formats.
