Karim Benzema    F    Real Madrid
Benzema picked up two assists in Real Madrid's 4-1 win over Almeria on Friday.

Fantasy Analysis

Benzema continues to be an excellent complement to Cristiano Ronaldo, as he now has eight goals and seven assists in 13 La Liga matches. He's deservingly in Ronaldo's (25 goals and eight assists) shadow, but Benzema is still an elite fantasy option.
Cristiano Ronaldo    F    Real Madrid
Ronaldo bagged a brace in Friday's 4-1 win over Almeria, increasing his league-leading goal total to 25 in 14 matches.

Fantasy Analysis

Remarkably, Ronaldo also co-leads La Liga with eight assists. He's been hot all season and seems well on his way to another Ballon d'Or.
Cristiano Ronaldo    F    Real Madrid
Ronaldo scored from the penalty spot in the 20th minute of Real Madrid's 4-0 win over Ludogorets in the Champions League on Tuesday.

Fantasy Analysis

Ronaldo continue to be the best goal scorer in the world, as he now has five UCL goals and 23 more in La Liga play this season. Up next is a Friday matchup against Almeria.
Lionel Messi    F    Barcelona
Messi scored three times in Barcelona's 5-1 win over Espanyol on Sunday, netting his third hat trick in the last four matches.

Fantasy Analysis

Messi continues to be in excellent form, as he has 13 goals and seven assists in 14 La Liga matches, plus another seven goals and two assists in five Champions League games.
James Rodriguez    M    Real Madrid
James suffered a calf injury during Saturday's win over Celta Vigo, with manager Carlo Ancelotti saying he will be ruled out through the Club World Cup, which will occur Dec. 16, ESPN FC reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Given that timeframe, James will also miss Tuesday's Champions League match against Ludogorets and Friday's La Liga match against Almeria.
Koke    M    Atlético Madrid
Koke posted his third consecutive clean sheet in Saturday's 2-0 victory over Elche, but he has failed to record an assist in any game over that span.

Fantasy Analysis

Despite the small dry spell, Koke's eight assists still co-lead La Liga with Real Madrid's Cristiano Ronaldo.
Antoine Griezmann    F    Atlético Madrid
Griezmann came on for Mario Mandzukic in the 74th minute of Atletico Madrid's 2-0 win over Elche on Saturday, but he failed to take a shot for the second league match in a row.

Fantasy Analysis

There were high expectations for Griezmann this season after he netted 16 times in 35 matches for Real Sociedad last season, but the French striker has struggled to find consistent playing time thanks to Mario Mandzukic, and he remains a fairly limited fantasy option, as evidenced by his three goals and zero assists in 14 league appearances this term.
Alessio Cerci    M    Atlético Madrid
Cerci failed to make it on the pitch during Atletico Madrid's 2-0 win over Elche on Saturday, the sixth time in the last eight matches in all club competitions that he's been an unused substitute.

Fantasy Analysis

Certainly more was expected from Cerci after he posted 13 goals and 10 assists last season for Torino, but he just hasn't found a way into the Atletico rotation this season and remains a very limited fantasy options, even in the deepest leagues.
Moya    G    Atlético Madrid
Moya needed to make only one save to record his seventh clean sheet of the season in Atletico Madrid's 2-0 win over Elche on Saturday.

Fantasy Analysis

Moya and the Atletico defense are playing very well of late, as they've now gone four consecutive matches in all competitions without allowing a goal. However, he'll be tested much more heavily to make it five, as Atletico travel to face Juventus in the Champions League on Tuesday.
Mario Mandzukic    F    Atlético Madrid
Mandzukic scored his sixth goal of the season during Atletico Madrid's 2-0 win over Elche on Saturday.

Fantasy Analysis

Mandzukic seems to be coming into his own in Madrid, as he now had 16 goals in 22 appearances, including four in his last three games. Up next is a vital Champions League match Tuesday at Juventus, with the top spot in the group up for grabs.
