Javier Mascherano    M    Barcelona
Mascherano is ineligible to play Sunday against Villarreal after picking up a red card last Sunday against Elche.

Fantasy Analysis

Mascherano's fantasy value is fully dependent on clean sheets, and Sunday's matchup isn't the easiest, so he isn't likely losing a ton of value with the time off.
Andres Iniesta    F/M    Barcelona
Iniesta will not face Villarreal on Sunday after picking up a left knee injury in training.

Fantasy Analysis

Iniesta will undergo additional scans to determine the extent of the injury, although he's never been a huge fantasy producer despite his vital importance on the pitch for Barcelona.
Neymar    F    Barcelona
Neymar (ankle) has been declared fit to face Villarreal on Sunday.

Fantasy Analysis

Neymar missed Barcelona's La Liga opener with an ankle injury, while he was also recovering from a broken vertebra he suffered during the World Cup, but he is back to fitness and should be a big part of the Barca attack once again.
Aritz Aduriz    F    Athletic
Aduriz scored twice in Athletic Bilbao's 3-1 win over Napoli on Wednesday.

Fantasy Analysis

Things weren't looking so good for Bilbao after Marek Hamsik had put Napoli up 1-0 early into the second half. However, Aduriz struck twice in a span of eight minutes, and not long after Ibai Gomez sealed the deal to help Athletic Bilbao earn a spot in the Champions League group stages. An in-form Aduriz holds a lot of fantasy appeal for this weekend's home encounter with Levante.
Didac Vila Rossello    D    Eibar
AC Milan has once again loaned the Spanish left back, this time to Eibar, Football Italia reports.

Fantasy Analysis

AC Milan was deep in the back and this helps in that regard.
Iker Casillas    G    Real Madrid
Casillas made two saves and posted a clean sheet during Real Madrid's 2-0 win over Cordoba on Monday.

Fantasy Analysis

Casillas will have to continue keeping opponents out of the net if he wants to hold off Keylor Navas, who was brought in this summer to potentially take over the goalkeeping duties. Casillas will get every chance to keep the job, but with Madrid playing for multiple trophies this season, they can't afford to let him linger too long.
Gareth Bale    M    Real Madrid
Bale took two shots, with one on goal, during Real Madrid's 2-0 win over Cordoba on Monday.

Fantasy Analysis

Bale was fairly limited offensively in the match, but he remains an elite fantasy option with double-digit goal and assist potential, especially in a lethal Madrid attack that now features James Rodriguez and Toni Kroos, along with leftovers Cristiano Ronaldo and Karim Benzema.
James Rodriguez    M    Real Madrid
Rodriguez led Real Madrid with four shots, including two on goal, during Monday's 2-0 win over Cordoba.

Fantasy Analysis

There are tons of expectations on Rodriguez this season after Madrid paid more than 60 million for him this summer. If he continues to put up the shots he did Monday, it's only a matter of time before he puts one in the back of the net. However, don't sleep on his passing, as he led Ligue 1 in assists last season while with AS Monaco.
Isco    M    Real Madrid
Isco assisted on Cristiano Ronaldo's 90th minute goal during Real Madrid's 2-0 win over Cordoba on Monday.

Fantasy Analysis

Isco didn't even enter the match until the 70th minute when he subbed on for James Rodriguez. The Madrid midfield is absolutely stacked this season, which could make it tough for Isco to see consistent appearances in the starting XI.
Karim Benzema    F    Real Madrid
Benzema scored in the 30th minute of Real Madrid's 2-0 win over Cordoba on Monday.

Fantasy Analysis

Benzema opened the scoring in a match that turned out to be much tighter than many expected. While he is often overlooked by Cristiano Ronaldo, Benzema is still an excellent source of goals in fantasy leagues.
