James Rodriguez    M    Real Madrid
James assisted on one of Karim Benzema's two goals during Real Madrid's 3-1 win over Barcelona on Saturday.

Fantasy Analysis

James has now picked up an assist in three straight games in all competitions, giving him four in La Liga play this season, tying him for third in the league behind Lionel Messi (seven), teammate Toni Kroos (five) and Koke (five).
Sergio Ramos    D    Real Madrid
Ramos did not register a shot, but he had six clearances and three interceptions during Real Madrid's 3-1 win over Barcelona on Saturday.

Fantasy Analysis

Ramos had been sidelined since before the recent international break, but he looked fine during Saturday's match while playing all 90 minutes. Now that he's fit, he should continue to be a mainstay in the Madrid defensive line.
Toni Kroos    M    Real Madrid
Kroos assisted on one of Karim Benzema's two goals during Real Madrid's 3-1 win over Barcelona on Saturday.

Fantasy Analysis

Kroos is now tied with Atletico Madrid midfielder Koke for second in La Liga with five assists, two behind Barcelona's Lionel Messi.
Claudio Bravo    G    Barcelona
Bravo's La Liga record shutout streak reached 754 minutes before he was beaten by Cristiano Ronaldo from the penalty spot during Barcelona's 3-1 loss Saturday.

Fantasy Analysis

Bravo posted eight consecutive clean sheets to start the season, but the onslaught from Real Madrid on Saturday, which included a brace from Karim Benzema, was just too much to keep the streak going. He'll look to start a new on starting next Saturday against Celta Vigo at Camp Nou.
Luis Suarez    F    Barcelona
Suarez assisted on Neymar's fourth-minute goal during Barcelona's 3-1 loss to Real Madrid on Saturday.

Fantasy Analysis

Suarez finally made his Barcelona debut after a four-month ban after a biting incident at the World Cup. Manager Luis Enrique started Suarez up front with Lionel Messi and Neymar, which should certainly continue to put him in excellent positions for both goals and assists this season.
Neymar    F    Barcelona
Neymar scored his ninth La Liga goal during Barcelona's 3-1 loss to Real Madrid on Saturday.

Fantasy Analysis

Neymar trails only Cristiano Ronaldo for the La Liga league, though the Madrid marksman has as many goals as Neymar and Lionel Messi (seven) combined this season. Nevertheless, Neymar remains an elite fantasy option, and could be in for more goals with Luis Suarez the distributor Saturday.
Cristiano Ronaldo    F    Real Madrid
Ronaldo scored from the penalty spot in Real Madrid's 3-1 win over Barcelona on Saturday, his 11th straight club match with a goal.

Fantasy Analysis

Ronaldo is simply in a class by himself this season, as he's now reached 16 goals in eight La Liga matches, plus another three in three Champions League ties. As long as he's fit, he's arguably the best player in the world.
Karim Benzema    F    Real Madrid
Benzema scored two goals during Real Madrid's 3-1 win over Barcelona on Saturday.

Fantasy Analysis

If it weren't for Cristiano Ronaldo's 11-game goal streak, Benzema would be getting plenty of attention for his own scoring streak, which has now reached four games in all competitions that has seen him net six times. He has only four La Liga goals this season, plus three more in the Champions League, but he's red hot right now and can certainly add to his numbers.
Andres Iniesta    M    Barcelona
Iniesta picked up a knock in Saturday's match against Real Madrid and had an ice pack on his right calf.

Fantasy Analysis

Iniesta had to be subbed off due to the injury with Barcelona trailing 3-1, and he'll have scans in the coming days to determine the full extent of the injury.
Luis Suarez    F    Barcelona
Suarez, whose four-month suspension for biting Italy's Giorgio Chiellini during the World Cup ended Friday, is in the starting XI for Saturday's Clasico.

Fantasy Analysis

Suarez has been able to train with the first team and has played in a number of exhibition matches for the club, but without a full match under his belt, aside from two friendlies for Uruguay, it wouldn't be surprising if he was limited in his team debut.
