Cristian Ansaldi    D    Atlético Madrid
Ansaldi picked up an assist in Atletico Madrid's 3-2 Champions League loss at Olympiacos on Tuesday.

Fantasy Analysis

Ansaldi, who is on loan from Zenit St. Petersburg, was an unused substitute in two of the last three La Liga matches, although he was able to grab a clean sheet in the season-opener. Atletico are a very good defensive team, so if he can solidify a spot in the starting XI, he should get his fair share of clean sheets.
Koke    M    Atlético Madrid
Koke picked up an assist during Atletico Madrid's 3-2 Champions League loss at Olympiacos on Tuesday.

Fantasy Analysis

Koke has now picked up an assist in three straight club matches in all competitions, with two coming during La Liga play. He is excellent at setting up others, as evidenced by the 13 assists he had during league play last season.
Antoine Griezmann    F    Atlético Madrid
Griezmann came on for Gabi in the 56th minute and then scored in the 86th during Atletico Madrid's 3-2 Champions League loss at Olympiacos on Tuesday.

Fantasy Analysis

Griezmann has yet to break through into a starting role at Atletico after transferring from Real Sociedad last month. He scored 16 goals in 35 La Liga appearances last season, so it's likely only a matter of time before he earns a starting role and the goals start to come.
Mario Mandzukic    F    Atlético Madrid
Mandzukic scored in the 38th minute of Atletico Madrid's 3-2 Champions League loss at Olympiacos on Tuesday.

Fantasy Analysis

Mandzukic is coming off an 18-goal season for Bayern Munich, and while he will have to work harder for his goals this season, he is still expected to easily reach double-digit goals. He now has two goals in his last three club matches in all competitions and he'll look to keep it going Saturday against Celta Vigo.
Toni Kroos    M    Real Madrid
Kroos started and played all 90 minutes of Real Madrid's 5-1 Champions League rout of FC Basel on Tuesday, but he did not attempt a shot.

Fantasy Analysis

Kroos is playing a bit of a deeper role, with Luka Modric getting more involved on the attack. However, he still has the opportunity for plenty of assists, of which he has two through Madrid's first three league matches.
Luka Modric    M    Real Madrid
Modric set up Gareth Bale's 30th minute goal during Real Madrid's 5-1 Champions League victory over FC Basel on Tuesday.

Fantasy Analysis

Modric doesn't get involved in the attack as much, but he does now have two assists in his last three club appearances. With so many goal scorers on the pitch with him, he should certainly fall into a fair number of assists this season despite playing a more holding role.
Karim Benzema    F    Real Madrid
Benzema scored in the 79th minute of Real Madrid's 5-1 Champions League victory over FC Basel on Tuesday.

Fantasy Analysis

Benzema had a great look earlier in the game that was saved by Basel keeper Tomas Vaclik (James Rodriguez would bang the rebound in), but he finally got on the scoresheet when the rout was already on. His Champions League goal total now equals his La Liga one, with both expected to increase considerably as the season moves on.
James Rodriguez    M    Real Madrid
Rodriguez scored in the 36th minute of Real Madrid's 5-1 Champions League victory over FC Basel on Tuesday.

Fantasy Analysis

Rodriguez still hasn't scored for Madrid in La Liga play, though it's not for lack of effort, as he's taken 10 shots in three games, so it's only a matter of time before he finds the back of the net.
Gareth Bale    M    Real Madrid
Bale scored in the 30th minute and then assisted on Cristiano Ronaldo's goal one minute later during Real Madrid's 5-1 Champions League victory over FC Basel on Tuesday.

Fantasy Analysis

Bale now has four goals in his last four games, though it should be noted that two came for Wales against Andorra in a Euro 2016 qualifier. He'll have a small break, as Madrid don't play again until Sept. 23 against Elche, when Bale will look to increase his league goal-total to two.
Cristiano Ronaldo    F    Real Madrid
Ronaldo scored in the 31st minute and then set up Karim Benzema's 79th minute goal during Real Madrid's 5-1 Champions League victory over FC Basel on Tuesday.

Fantasy Analysis

Ronaldo took eight shots in the game, double what Benzema (who finished second) had, in a game that Madrid absolutely dominated. Ronaldo was able to play all 90 minutes and looked to be in fine health, and he will get an extended break before their next league match against Elche on Sept. 23.
