Fantasy Analysis

Barcelona bought Vermaelen from Arsenal this summer, but he has yet to feature for the club because of the hamstring issue that has been an issue since before the transfer.
Andres Iniesta    M    Barcelona
Iniesta (calf) will not travel to Cyprus for Tuesday's Champions League match against APOEL.

Iniesta has been sidelined since suffering the injury in last month's Clasico, and he has yet to return to training.
Ivan Rakitic    M    Barcelona
On a historic night at Camp Nou, Rakitic netted his third goal of the season as Barca went on to a 5-1 win over Sevilla.

Fantasy Analysis

Rakitic has been a savvy addition to the a Barca side that looks to finally be learning how all of the new pieces fit.
Neymar    F    Barcelona
Neymar scored for the 11th time this season as Barcelona cruised to a 5-1 win over Sevilla on Saturday.

Fantasy Analysis

The beginning of the 2014-15 campaign has shown growth in Neymar's game. The flash and dash wing play is still there, but the Brazilian superstar has shown a willingness to attack the goal and his movement off the ball has come a long way.
James Rodriguez    M    Real Madrid
James netted in Saturday's 4-0 win over Eibar.

Fantasy Analysis

The budding Colombian superstar opened things up for Los Blancos with his fifth goal of the season. The concern is in just how much soccer he has played since the World Cup, appearing in 24 matches for club and country since August 12th.
Cristiano Ronaldo    F    Real Madrid
Ronaldo added two more goals to his tally as Madrid coasted to a 4-0 win over Eibar on Saturday.

Fantasy Analysis

To put it into perspective, CR7 alone has scored more goals than 16 of the other 19 teams in the Spanish top flight.
Karim Benzema    F    Real Madrid
Benzema netted his sixth goal in the last five league games for Madrid as they cruised to a 4-0 win over Eibar on Saturday.

Fantasy Analysis

The French assassin is fully healthy and arguably playing the best soccer of his club career.
Lionel Messi    F    Barcelona
Messi broke the all-time La Liga goal scoring record with a hat-trick in Saturday's 5-1 thrashing of Sevilla.

Fantasy Analysis

After a week when some started to doubt Messi's long-term interest in staying at Barca, he put in an absolute master class on his way to the record.
Isco    M    Real Madrid
Isco is expected to move back into the starting XI in place of Luka Modric, who is sidelined for at least three months with a groin injury, ESPN FC reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Isco has been in excellent form, though he recently was playing in place of the injured Gareth Bale, who has returned to fitness. Replacing Modric will leave him in a much more defensive role, but if he's able to move up while Toni Kroos holds back, he could still be a valuable fantasy contributor.
Luka Modric    M    Real Madrid
After initial thoughts that he may just be out a month, Modric will be sidelined for three to four months with a torn thigh muscle, ESPN FC reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Every manager's nightmare when his players leave on International duty, Modric tore a thigh muscle for Croatia in their Euro 2016 qualifier with Italy. Isco and Sami Khedira will surely see more time now with Modric sidelined.
