The most recent Ligue 1 fantasy soccer news from RotoWire.
Fantasy AnalysisAfter scoring 16 times in 35 appearances last season, Gignac is now well on his way to battling Ibrahimovic for the rest of the season.
Fantasy AnalysisIbrahimovic suffered an oblique injury back on Aug. 16 and was expected to miss a number of weeks, but he ended up missing just one match and then bagged a hat trick against St. Etienne on Aug. 31. He continues to be absolutely dominant and is the clear choice to lead the league in goals once again.
Fantasy AnalysisCavani is off to a decent start this season, as he now has three goals in six club matches in all competitions, with two coming during Ligue 1 play. With Zlatan Ibrahimovic fit again, Cavani will have the benefit of having defenders worry about the Swedish striker, which should open up more space.
Fantasy AnalysisAfter being lightly used in the first two Ligue 1 matches of the season, Roux has started back-to-back matches and figures to lead the line going forward. He's taken four shots in the last two games (two on goal) and should continue to be an active participant in the attack.
Fantasy AnalysisIbrahimovic has been sidelined from Ligue 1 play with Paris Saint-Germain due to a back injury, but he looked more than comfortable wearing the Swedish yellow. As long as he doesn't suffer any setbacks during the international break, he looks poised to face Rennes on Sept. 13.
Fantasy AnalysisPayet opened the scoring with a goal in the 19th minute and then got his second early in the second half to essentially put the match out of reach. After contributing eight goals and six assists in 30 league appearances for the club last season, Payet has been producing early in 2014-15 as well.
Fantasy AnalysisKjaer's sparkling start to the 2014-15 campaign continues, as Lille's has now opened with three straight clean sheets. A rock in central defense, Kjaer leads Lille with 11.7 clearances per game, but also poses a threat going forward, as his average of 1.3 shot attempts ranks third on the team. Looking ahead, Kjaer faces two stiff tests in the coming week, with the second leg of a Champions League qualifier against FC Porto on Tuesday and a clash versus Ligue 1 power Monaco at the weekend.
Fantasy AnalysisWith three goals in two Ligue 1 matches, Gignac is well on his way to surpassing the 16 goals he scored in 35 appearances last season.
Fantasy AnalysisAfter giving up a shocking six goals to Rennes last weekend, Hansen was good enough Friday to notch the surprising clean sheet. PSG went down to 10 men with just under a half-hour to play, but Evian could not break through for the win.
