Zlatan Ibrahimovic    F    Paris Saint-Germain
Ibrahmimovic will miss at least the next four weeks due to the hamstring injury he suffered in Wednesday's Champions League match against Chelsea, ESPN FC reports.

Fantasy Analysis

While PSG have a commanding lead for the Ligue 1 title, Ibrahimovic's absence is a huge blow for their Champions League ambitions. They are up 3-1 on aggregate heading into the second leg against Chelsea in London next week.

Ibrahimovic suffered a hamstring injury during Wednesday's Champions League match against Chelsea, according to ESPN FC

Fantasy Analysis

This could be a huge blow to PSG's chances of advancing to the semifinal round, as the second leg is only six days away. He appeared to have strained the hamstring on a lunge near midfield, taking two steps before falling to the ground.
Jeremy Menez    F/M    Paris Saint-Germain
Menez plans on leaving PSG at the end of this season, ESPN FC reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Menez is set to see his contract with PSG expire following this season, which will allow the midfielder to sign elsewhere on a free transfer. The 26-year-old has struggled to find consistent playing time this season and may prefer a move back to Serie A, where Menez previously spent three seasons with Roma.
Alexandre Lacazette    F/M    Lyon
Lacazette scored his 14th league goal of the season during Lyon's 2-1 loss to Saint Etienne on Sunday.

Fantasy Analysis

Lacazette's previous season-high for league goals was five, so this term's 14 clearly evidence his development. In fact, only Zlatan Ibrahimovic has scored more goals than Lacazette in Ligue 1 this season.
Solomon Kalou    F    Lille
Kalou scored a 90th minute goal to lead Lille to a 1-0 victory over Guingamp on Sunday.

Fantasy Analysis

Kalou came on as a second-half substitute and ended up making the difference in Sunday's game. The experienced striker now has 11 goals on the campaign.
Ola Toivonen    M    Rennes
Toivonen scored a goal and assisted another during Rennes' 3-0 victory over Bastia on Sunday.

Fantasy Analysis

Toivonen has now notched a fantastic six goals in nine appearances since joining Rennes during the January transfer window. The striker has clearly settled well in France and recorded his first assist Sunday.
Guillermo Ochoa    G    AC Ajaccio
Ochoa made nine saves, including a penalty-kick stop during stoppage time, to earn Ajaccio a 2-2 draw versus Toulouse on Saturday.

Fantasy Analysis

Ochoa put together an enormous display to prevent Toulouse from climbing the Ligue 1 table. Although Ajaccio currently sits in last place and have allowed the most goals in France this season, Saturday's performance certainly serves as a highlight for Ochoa.
Cedric Mongongu    D    Evian Thonon Gaillard
Mongongu made an 84th minute penalty kick to propel Evian Thonon Gaillard over Monaco on Saturday.

Fantasy Analysis

Mongongu, despite playing central defense, serves as Evian Thonon Gaillard's designated penalty kick taker. With four goals on the season, Mongongu's fantasy stock warrants consideration given his offensive potential as a bonus to the defensive position he plays.
Vincent Aboubakar    F    Lorient
Aboubakar scored a 45th minute penalty kick in Saturday's draw against Reims.

Fantasy Analysis

Aboubakar had not scored in nearly two months, but ended his goal drought by converting from the spot. The 22-year-old now has 13 goals and five assists through 30 appearances, which puts him among Ligue 1's top-five goal scorers on the season.
Salvatore Sirigu    G    Paris Saint-Germain
Sirigu made four saves to hold Nice scoreless in Friday's 1-0 victory.

Fantasy Analysis

Sirigu and PSG's defense has been in top form lately, as they've now posted five consecutive clean sheets in Ligue 1 play. That streak has boosted Sirigu's total to 17 clean sheets through 31 games this season, making him a fine play at goalkeeper in fantasy leagues.
