Michel is expected to start Saturday versus Metz, according to L'Equipe.

Fantasy Analysis

Denis Petric missed a few trainings this week and didn't make the 18-man match squad for the clash with Metz on Saturday. With Alexandre Letellier also out long term Michel all but certain to line up between the sticks for his Angers and Ligue 1 debut. Angers, however, are struggling and with two losses in as many games the keeper wouldn't be a top fantasy option away from home.
Denis Petric    G    Angers
Petric didn't make the 18-man squad for Saturday's Ligue 1 trip to Metz due to an injury, according to L'Equipe.

Fantasy Analysis

Petric missed a few trainings this week and is now sidelined for the game. Angers are losing another goalkeeper after Alexandre Letellier is out with a torn ACL. Mathieu Michel is next in line at goal and will grab his Ligue 1 debut.
Dickson Nwakaeme    F    Angers
Nwakaeme didn't make the 18-man squad for Saturday's Ligue 1 trip to Metz continuing his recovery from injury, according to L'Equipe.

Fantasy Analysis

Nwakaeme isn't a regular starter and his absence won't affect many fantasy rosters.
Thomas Mangani    M    Angers
Mangani has been named in the 18-man squad for Saturday's Ligue 1 trip to Metz, according to L'Equipe.

Fantasy Analysis

Mangani's return will be a huge boost for struggling Angers. The central midfielder will also bring a solid fantasy upside after five goals and four assists last season in over 30 appearances.
Ignacio Camacho    M    Málaga
Camacho assisted on Malaga's final goal of their 2-2 draw at Espanyol on Friday. He finished with with seven aerials won and two successful tackles.

Fantasy Analysis

Camacho is a nuisance in the midfield for the opposition, but he won't often find the score sheet after four goals total the last two seasons. He's more of the enforcer in the Malaga midfield.
Charles    F    Málaga
Charles came off the bench in the 56th minute and saved a point for Malaga, scoring in the waning minutes of Friday's 2-2 draw at Espanyol.

Fantasy Analysis

After being a consistent part of Malaga's attack last season - 12 goals in 33 starts - Charles has come off the bench in the first two matches. In that role, his fantasy value will remain limited.
Didier Ndong    M    Lorient
Ndong has served his suspension and will be available for selection in Lorient's first match after the international break.

Fantasy Analysis

Ndong is a regular starter and a vital figure in Lorient's squad. However, he's not a strong fantasy producer.
Diego Llorente    D    Málaga
Llorente scored Malaga's first goal of their 2-2 draw at Espanyol on Friday. Llorente finished with two aerials won in a mostly defensive match.

Fantasy Analysis

While Llorente scored a goal, Malaga still allowed two goals. Clean sheets will be few and far between for the club down south.
Idriss Kameni    G    Málaga
In a defensive game, Kameni wasn't allowed to do much, making zero saves in Friday's 2-2 draw at Espanyol. In all, Espanyol had just seven shots, two of them on net.

Fantasy Analysis

Clean sheets will be tough to come by for Malaga this season and next match that will remain the case, even at home against Villarreal.
Pablo Piatti    F    Espanyol
Piatti picked up an assist to go with three successful tackles in Friday's 2-2 draw against Malaga.

Fantasy Analysis

Piatti remained active on the left side for Espanyol, now with a goal and three assists in two matches. Combined with Gerard Moreno up front, those two should be viable weekly options as long as it's a decent matchup.
