Higuain put in six crosses and generated one assist from four key passes in Saturday's 1-1 draw with Dallas.

The 31-year-old was held off the scoresheet for two games after scoring in the season-opener, but he earned his first assist of the campaign as Justin Meram converted in the ninth minute. Higuain's form will be crucial to Columbus as they search for their first win of 2016, and Saturday's performance is a positive indicator of things to come.

Higuain faces a late fitness test ahead of Saturday's game and his availability won't be made clear until official lineups are published shortly before kickoff. If he's unable to play, Cedrick Mabwati could be given his first MLS start.

Higuain had one shot and an assist in Saturdayís 3-3 draw against Toronto.

Higuain picked up another assist on the first goal of the game against Toronto. Unfortunately, he was subbed off late in order to get a more defensive minded midfielder into the game. Clearly it didnít work for Columbus as they blew the lead, but as usual, Higuain played spectacular in attack and will look to continue his good form next Saturday in Orlando.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Higuain had two shots and scored a goal in Sundayís 3-1 win over Chicago.

Higuain scored the opening goal from the penalty spot in Sundayís convincing win over Chicago. He ended what was a five-match goalless streak and continues to be an intricate part of the Columbus attack. He tends to be overshadowed with the play of Kei Kamara and Ethan Finlay, but Higuain is still one of the most creative and dangerous players in MLS. Expect him to play a huge role this Saturday as Columbus takes on Toronto FC.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Higuain had an active game Saturday as he netted his fourth goal of the season and drew three fouls in Saturday's 1-1 draw with the Galaxy.

Higuain's four goals are good for second best on the Crew behind Kei Kamara's league-leading 10. Additionally, Higuain has two assists this year which makes him a valuable asset across all formats moving forward this season.
