The most recent Ligue 1 fantasy soccer news from RotoWire.
Fantasy AnalysisThe fullback fell out of favor at Real Madrid last season and has now been loaned out to French side Monaco for the rest of the season. Coentrao was signed from Benfica for £25m in 2011 but has fallen down the pecking order lately.
Fantasy AnalysisTrapp, who joined PSG this summer and immediately replaced Salvatore Sirigu as the starter, has made seven saves in his first three appearances for the reigning champions, and there will likely be plenty more clean sheets on the horizon.
Fantasy AnalysisThe PSG defense has been elite this season, posting three consecutive clean-sheet victories. Maxwell's spot in the starting XI appears secure, and there could be plenty of clean sheets to follow.
Fantasy AnalysisDespite taking just one shot in both of the last two matches, Matuidi has found the back of the net twice already, helping PSG to three consecutive wins. He netted only four times in 34 appearances (25 starts) last season, so while the early scoring output is impressive, fantasy owners are warned not to get too carried away.
Fantasy AnalysisCabella heads to France as part of the deal that brought Florian Thauvin to Newcastle on Friday. Cabella has much more opportunity for playing time in Ligue 1, and could be a viable fantasy option with the appropriate number of starts.
Fantasy AnalysisDi Maria spent only a single season in the Premier League, as his strong start to the season was thrown upside down by injury and ultimately a loss of his starting job. He is widely considered a world-class player but he simply couldn't find the right role in Louis van Gaal's system. He is expected to slot right into the starting lineup for PSG and could help propel them deep in the Champions League.
Fantasy AnalysisThe defender had one year remaining on his contract with Manchester United, but was deemed excess to manager Louis van Gaal's squad for the coming season. New signing Matteo Darmian is seen as Rafael's replacement at the club.
Fantasy AnalysisSpeculation about Di Maria's future with Manchester United grew when the midfielder failed to meet with the rest of the squad after his summer break. Now a transfer to PSG looks to be a certainty, and United are set to picket £44 million from the deal after paying £59.7 for him last season.
