Huntelaar started on the bench after recovering from a cold and was substituted on in the 24th minute for the injured Breel Embolo in Saturday's 1-1 draw against FC Augsburg. He put one of two shots on target and won four aerial duels in the match.

Huntelaar missed Schalke's last two matches but returned to the squad at just the right time, as a severe ankle injury forced Breel Embolo to withdraw from the match midway through the first half. The Dutch national stepped in for Embolo and played well despite settling for a point on the day. Huntelaar should start up front for Schalke 04 during Embolo's extended absence. Schalke 04 face Russian side FC Krasnodar this Thursday in the Europa League group stage.

Klaas-Jan Huntelaar: Past News Updates   ( ▲ View most recent update )

September 29, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Huntelaar missed Thursday's 3-1 Europa League group stage victory against Salzburg due to a cold.

Huntelaar has scored one of Schalke's two Bundesliga goals in the first five matches, so it is imperitave that he recover ahead of Sunday's tough match against Borussia Monchengladbach. Fantasy owners will have to wait until the weekend for a status update. Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting is likely to start up front if Huntelaar is unable to play.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Huntelaar scored a goal on four shots during Wednesday's 3-1 loss to FC Koln.

Huntelaar deftly chipped the ball over the onrushing 'keeper after he was played through in the 36th minute, but Koln answered with three goals over the final 52 minutes to seal the win. Huntelaar's first goal of the season was actually Schalke's as well, and they will hope to build off of that glimmer of hope after a miserable start to the season. A matchup with Hoffenheim awaits on Sunday.

Huntelaar (concussion) is starting on Sunday against Hertha Berlin.

Huntelaar suffered the head injury during last Friday's match against Bayern Munich, but his return is a huge boost to the Schalke attack.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Huntelaar is questionable to play in Thursday's Europa League match against Nice after suffering a concussion during Friday's Bundesliga match against Bayern Munich.

Huntelaar's absence would be a big blow to Schalke's attack, and with the uncertainty around head injuries, it's unclear how quickly he'll be able to recover, though the team is optimistic it'll be soon.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Huntelaar scored a goal in Saturday’s 1-1 draw against Augsburg.

Huntelaar almost scored earlier in the match but hit the woodwork on a first half free kick. He redeemed himself in the 81st minute to put Schalke 04 on the board, which proved valuable as Augsburg equalized late. Schalke 04 is guaranteed a spot in the Europa League next season, and Huntelaar will certainly be one of their most valuable attackers with 15 goals across all competitions this season. Schalke 04 plays Hoffenheim next Saturday in the final match of the Bundesliga season.

May 2, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Huntelaar scored a goal in Saturday’s 3-1 win over Hannover.

The Dutch striker has been having a great season, scoring 14 goals in all competitions for Schalke 04 and four in his last 10 matches. He will be a critical piece in Schalke’s run at the fourth place spot in the Bundesliga table. Schalke hosts Augsburg this Saturday and will be looking to avenge a 2-1 loss suffered last December.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Huntelaar scored a penalty goal in Sunday’s 2-2 draw against Borussia Dortmund.

Huntelaar picked up his third goal in the last five matches and leads the squad with nine goals in the Bundesliga so far this season. He was tenacious on the pitch and won 11 aerial duels. Huntelaar will need to bring this ferocity to his side’s match next weekend at Bayern Munich.
