Fantasy AnalysisThe striker was likely taken off with this week's Champions League fixture versus Bayern Munich in mind, limiting his involvement Saturday.

Danilo has been limited to 21 league starts this season, but his ability to get forward effectively has resulted in an impressive haul of five assists to go along with a pair of goals.
