Divock Origi    F    Lille
Origi said he would be ready to join Liverpool in January if the club were to exercise their option to recall him from loan, reports Sky Sports.

Fantasy Analysis

Liverpool hasn't had the goals the team needs yet this season, and with Origi on loan the idea would be to bring back another striking option. The forward was expecting to stay with Lille for the entire season.
Mevlut Erding    F    St. Etienne
Erding has made three substitute appearances since returning from his hamstring injury Nov. 1 against Lille, but he has not attempted a shot.

Fantasy Analysis

Erding attempted multiple shots in six of his first seven appearances this season, but he's been very quiet since his return, which included a start in the Europa League against Inter Milan. He'll have to really turn it around if he's going to come close to extending his double-digit goal streak to three consecutive seasons.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic    F    Paris Saint-Germain
Ibrahimovic came on as a second-half sub in PSG's 2-0 win over Marseille on Sunday, taking two shots, both on goal, in 24 minutes.

Fantasy Analysis

Ibrahimovic has five goals in six appearances this season, and he looks poised to return to his scoring ways now that the heel injury is behind him. His return could hinder the progress of Edinson Cavani, who has scored a goal in five consecutive matches.
Nolan Roux    F    Lille
Roux continues to struggle this season, as he has now gone seven games since opening his account against Monaco back on Aug. 30.

Fantasy Analysis

After scoring 17 goals in the last two seasons, the 26-year-old has hit an incredible dry spell for a Lille side that is struggling as a whole, scoring a league-low nine goals in 13 matches. Despite getting enough playing time to make a difference, Roux remains an incredibly tough fantasy option until he and his teammates can break out.
Alexandre Lacazette    F/M    Lyon
Lacazette scored in Lyon's 3-1 win over Guingamp on Sunday, giving him 11 goals this season, tops in Ligue 1.

Fantasy Analysis

Lacazette has been on fire recently, scoring or assisting at least one goal in seven straight matches (eight goals and four assists over that span). His goal tally puts him one ahead of Marseille's Andre-Pierre Gignac, while his four assists are tied for the league lead. He'll look to continue his streak after the international break against 15th-place Bastia on Nov. 22.
Edinson Cavani    F    Paris Saint-Germain
After netting in PSG's 2-0 win over Marseille on Sunday, Cavani has now scored in five straight matches in all competitions.

Fantasy Analysis

Three goals in Ligue 1 play and two in the Champions League have Cavani finally looking like the player PSG bought from Napoli before last season. However, his role may change a bit now that Zlatan Ibrahimovic has returned from his heel injury. Cavani will look to extend his club goal-streak to six games Nov. 22 against Metz.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic    F    Paris Saint-Germain
Ibrahimovic (heel) returned to first-team training this week and he could feature against Marseille on Sunday, ESPN FC reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Ibrahimovic has missed the last six Ligue 1 matches due to the injury and his return Sunday would be a huge boost against the Ligue 1 leaders. If he is unable to play this weekend, he is fully expected to play Nov. 22 against Metz following the international break.
Edinson Cavani    F    Paris Saint-Germain
Cavani scored in the first minute for PSG as they held tight to a 1-0 win over APOEL in Champions League play on Wednesday.

Fantasy Analysis

Cavani has a couple of goals in three Champions League appearances for PSG.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic    F    Paris Saint-Germain
Ibrahimovic (heel) is expected to return to training this week and might even be available for Sunday's game against Marseille, ESPN FC reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Ibrahimovic has been sidelined since Sept. 21 due to a heel injury, but has reportedly been without pain since last Wednesday. As a result, Ibrahimovic is expected to begin training again this week, though he will not play in Wednesday's Champions League tie versus APOEL. If anything, Ibrahimovic stands a chance of being ready for Sunday's top-heavy tie against first-place rivals Marseille, possibly representing a massive boost for second-place PSG.
Alexandre Lacazette    F/M    Lyon
Lacazette bagged a brace during Lyon's 3-1 win over Nice on Saturday.

Fantasy Analysis

Lacazette now totes 10 goals through 12 Ligue 1 matches, putting him level with Marseille's Andre-Pierre Gignac for France's scoring lead. Helping Lacazette's prospects is the fact that he's slated to play Guingamp's second-worst defense next weekend.
