Edinson Cavani    F    Paris Saint-Germain
Cavani scored two goals in Tuesday's 3-1 Champions League victory over Ajax.

Fantasy Analysis

Cavani now has five goals in five Champions League matches this season. He is one of Paris Saint-Germain's best scoring options, but he will face a tough test as PSG finish group play with a trip to Barcelona. When the two teams met back in September, Cavani finished with four shot attempts (one on target) but was unable to score.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic    F    Paris Saint-Germain
Ibrahimovic slotted home a goal in the 78th minute of Tuesday's 3-1 Champions League victory over Ajax.

Fantasy Analysis

The goal was Ibrahimovic's first in the group stages of this season's Champions League, but he is always a threat to score as he has shown with five league goals this season.
Salvatore Sirigu    G    Paris Saint-Germain
Sirigu helped Paris Saint-Germain to a 3-1 Champions League victory Tuesday over Ajax despite not making a save.

Fantasy Analysis

Sirigu had two consecutive clean sheets in Champions League play coming in to the match. However, both were against Apoel. PSG will finish group play with a trip to Barcelona, which will limit Sirigu's fantasy potential.
Javier Pastore    M    Paris Saint-Germain
Pastore picked up an assist during Tuesday's 3-1 Champions League win over Ajax.

Fantasy Analysis

Pastore has been active in the Paris Saint-Germain attack this season but has just one assist during Champions League play. Despite being involved, his fantasy production has been sporadic during league play this season.
Ezequiel Lavezzi    F    Paris Saint-Germain
Lavezzi was credited with the assist on Paris Saint-Germain's first goal Tuesday in the squad's 3-1 Champions League victory over Ajax.

Fantasy Analysis

Tuesday was Lavezzi's second start in the group stages of Champions League play since returning from a hamstring injury and he responded nicely.
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.
