Gerard Pique    D    Barcelona
Pique, who has been battling a hip injury of late, was an unused substitute for Barcelona's 3-2 loss to Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League on Tuesday.

Fantasy Analysis

Pique's playing time has been very inconsistent this season, as he continues to battle with both Jeremy Mathieu and Javier Macherano. It's an unfortunate situation and one that makes him a fairly unreliable fantasy option.
Neymar    F    Barcelona
Neymar scored in the 56th minute of Barcelona's 3-2 loss at Paris Saint Germain in the Champions League on Tuesday.

Fantasy Analysis

Barca trailed 3-1 before Neymar's goal and he was unable to help them grab a point before the final whistle. Neymar is red hot right now, as he has four goals in his last two games in all competitions, and he'll look to keep it going Saturday against Rayo Vallecano in La Liga play.
Lionel Messi    F    Barcelona
Messi scored in the 11th minute of Barcelona's 3-2 Champions League loss at Paris Saint-Germain on Tuesday.

Fantasy Analysis

Messi's goal came one minute after David Luiz opened the scoring for PSG, but it ultimately wouldn't be enough to help Barca grab a point. Messi has been in excellent form of late, scoring four goals and assisting on seven others in his last seven games in all competitions. He'll look to continue his excellent play Saturday against Rayo Vallecano in La Liga play.
Ivan Rakitic    M    Barcelona
Rikitic scored in the 43rd minute of Barcelona's 6-0 rout of Granada on Saturday.

Fantasy Analysis

Rikitic, who scored 12 times in 34 appearances for Sevilla last season, has now found the back of the net twice in the last three games. He isn't taking a lot of shots (six in six games), but there's enough talent around him that he should fall into a number of goals and assists this season.
Lionel Messi    F    Barcelona
Messi had two goals and two assists during Barcelona's 6-0 win over Granada on Saturday.

Fantasy Analysis

Known mostly for his goal-scoring, Messi has been very good at setting up others this season, as he now leads La Liga with six assists in five games. That being said, he's still scoring with the best of them, as he is third in the league in goals behind Cristiano Ronaldo (10) and teammate Neymar (six).
Neymar    F    Barcelona
Neymar bagged a hat trick in Barcelona's 6-0 La Liga victory over Granada on Saturday.

Fantasy Analysis

Neymar has been excellent of late, scoring all six of his La Liga goals in the last four games. His six goals gives him the team lead, one ahead of Lionel Messi, though he is still four goals behind Real Madrid's Cristiano Ronaldo for the La Liga lead.
Luka Modric    M    Real Madrid
Modric scored his first goal of the season in Real Madrid's 2-0 win over Villarreal on Saturday.

Fantasy Analysis

Modric is a vital piece for Real Madrid, but his fantasy value is a bit limited given his role. While he'll likely fall into a few assists with the incredible weapons around him, he's likely not headed for double-digit goals this season.
Toni Kroos    M    Real Madrid
Kroos picked up an assist in Real Madrid's 2-0 win over Villarreal on Saturday, his third of the season.

Fantasy Analysis

With so many offensive stars such as Cristiano Ronaldo, Gareth Bale, James Rodriguez and Karim Benzema in front of him, Kroos is bound to find himself on the receiving end of a few assists, but he's not primarily focused on the attack, which limits his value in many fantasy leagues.
Karim Benzema    F    Real Madrid
Benzema picked up an assist in Real Madrid's 2-0 win over Villarreal on Saturday.

Fantasy Analysis

Benzema now has three assists in his last two appearances after being rested Sept. 23 against Elche. Despite the solid play of Javier Hernandez of late, Benzema should continue to be a mainstay up front, which gives him plenty of fantasy value.
Iker Casillas    G    Real Madrid
Casillas had five saves during Real Madrid's 2-0 win over Villarreal on Saturday.

Fantasy Analysis

Casillas grabbed his first clean sheet on Aug. 25 against Cordoba in the La Liga opener, but failed to keep any opponents out since then. Up next is a Champions League match Wednesday against Ludogorets before taking on Athletic Club in La Liga play on Sunday.
