The most recent Ligue 1 fantasy soccer news from RotoWire.
Fantasy AnalysisUdol, a talented leftback who spent half of last season on loan at RFC Seraing, was expected to be a big part of the Metz defense now that they are back in France top flight, but the injury is now likely to hold him out until at least January.
Fantasy AnalysisMoutinho wasn't able to earn a regular starting role, though, he was solid whenever trusted with duties last season with Monaco. The 29-year-old central midfielder, though, wasn't much of a fantasy factor as he was primarily deployed as a holding midfielder and finished the season with one goal and two assists in 26 Ligue 1 appearances (24 starts).
Fantasy AnalysisCarvalho had a very solid campaign with Monaco last season. The 38-year-old center back was a regular starter, though, he wasn't very productive and didn't bring much fantasy value outside the big number of clean sheets. He finished the season with two goals, 13 clean sheets, 35 tackles and eight yellow cards in 33 Ligue 1 starts.
Fantasy AnalysisLopes was a solid starter for Lyon last season bolstering the team to another Champions League trip. The 25-year-old keeper had an outstanding run in the beginning of the season that took him to 92 saves and 13 clean sheets in 37 Legue 1 starts at the end for a great fantasy campaign.
Fantasy AnalysisIn a heavy-duty campaign and a loaded PSG squad Matuidi couldn't keep a consistent starting league role, though, he was constantly involved. The 29-year-old central midfielder had a good season and a very solid fantasy upside, though, whenever trusted with the starting role. He finished the season with four goals and six assists in 31 Ligue 1 appearances (23 starts).
Fantasy AnalysisJallet took a bit of hit to his playing time with the presence of Rafael, though, he was still great whenever on the field for Lyon last season.

Fantasy AnalysisCostil had a decent campaign helping boost Rennes to a top-of-the-table finish last season that almost saw the team earn a spot in European football. The 29-year-old hauled in 92 saves and earned five clean sheets in his 31 Ligue 1 starts.
Fantasy AnalysisMotta had a great campaign starting the majority of the last season in a loaded with talent PSG squad.
