KÚvin Berigaud    F    Evian
Berigaud had a quiet season for Montpellier, accounting for just four goals and four assists in 33 total appearances.

Fantasy Analysis

The Frenchman just never put a consistent string of production together and was goalless in his final 13 games of the season. Berigaud's playing time suffered with the likes of Lucas Barrios, Anthony Mounier and Morgan Sanson in the fold, so he will likely need to win his place this summer.
Nabil Fekir    M    Lyon
Fekir, who was recently named Ligue 1's Young Player of the Year, finished this season with 13 goals and nine assists in 34 appearances for Lyon.

Fantasy Analysis

Fekir's breakout 2014/15 campaign saw him earn his first international appearance for France and nearly lead Lyon to the Ligue 1 title as well. While partnering top-scoring teammate Alexandre Lacazette, Fekir still managed 13 goals of his own and his nine assists ranked fourth-best league-wide. Overall, the 21-year-old's emergent campaign places him among the country's best attackers heading into next season.
Clinton N'Jie    F    Lyon
N'Jie registered the deciding goal in Saturday's 1-0 win over Rennes, bringing his end-of-season tally to seven goals this term.

Fantasy Analysis

N'Jie really blossomed over the course of this season, forming a fearsome attacking trio with teammates Alex Lacazette and Nabil Fekir. With four goals and two assists over his last six appearances, the 21-year-old finishes the campaign with an even seven goals and seven assists. While that production should allow N'Jie to top this season's mark of 15 starts next term, the future of Lacazette at Lyon could also potentially impact N'Jie's stock next season.
Edinson Cavani    F    Paris Saint-Germain
Cavani scored twice in Paris Saint-Germain's 3-2 win over Reims on Saturday, finishing this season with 18 goals in 30 league starts.

Fantasy Analysis

Cavani concluded this season with a scoring assault that included nine goals in his final six Ligue 1 matches. On the whole, the Uruguayan registered an impressive 31 goals in 45 appearances across all competitions, outscoring teammate Zlatan Ibrahimovic by two goals for PSG's team-high this season. However, with Ibrahimovic's tally coming in 15 fewer outings, and his status cemented as PSG's star player, there remains speculation surrounding Cavani's future at the club, making his situation worth monitoring over the course of this summer.
Dimitri Payet    F    Marseille
Payet scored his seventh goal of the season Sunday versus Bastia and finished the campaign as Ligue 1's leader in assists with 17 helpers this term.

Fantasy Analysis

Payet followed a somewhat disappointing first season at Marseille with a stellar campaign this term, as he offered five more assists than any other player in France's top flight. Additionally, with seven goals himself, Payet helped Marseille finish second in Ligue 1 in scoring this season, evidencing his strong impact as a playmaker.
Yannick Ferreira-Carrasco    M    Monaco
Ferreira-Carrasco scored the lone goal in Monaco's season-ending win over Lorient on Saturday.

Fantasy Analysis

Ferreira-Carrasco helped Monaco secure a place in the Champions League next season with his sixth league goal, which brought his tally across all competitions to eight this term. Moreover, the 21-year-old's 10 assists finished this season as Ligue 1's third-highest mark. Overall, the young Belgian emerged as one of the best upcoming talents in France's top-flight this season and will be afforded the opportunity to showcase his talents in Europe's most prestigious competition again next season.
Diego Rolan    F    Bordeaux
Rolan scored twice in Bordeaux's season-ending win over Montpellier on Saturday, finishing the campaign with 15 goals and three assists.

Fantasy Analysis

Rolan entered this season with just one goal since arriving at Bordeaux in 2013, but with 15 goals alone this term, the Uruguayan burst onto the scene. At just 22 years old, only six players in Ligue 1 outscored Rolan, who closed the campaign with four goals and one assist over his last three matches.
Alexandre Lacazette    F/M    Lyon
Despite not scoring in his final two matches, Lacazette won the Ligue 1 Golden Boot Award by scoring 27 goals in 33 appearances this season.

Fantasy Analysis

Lacazette broke out with 15 goals in 36 Ligue 1 matches this year, and he came very close to doubling that total this term. He scored consistently throughout the season, which included one hat trick and six braces, including three in a row at one point. Marseille's Andre-Pierre Gignac finished second with 21 goals, while PSG's Zlatan Imbrahimovic's final tally was 19.
Falcao    F    Monaco
Manchester United announced Sunday that Falcao has returned to Monaco, as the club decided not to purchase him following his season-long loan.

Fantasy Analysis

Falcao was a colossal disappointment with United, though he rarely looked fully fit after tearing his ACL last January. There will be no shortage of suitors for him this summer, though he may have to take a pay cut to make a move happen.
Falcao    F    Monaco
Falcao is not in the 18-man squad for Sunday's season finale against Hull City.

Fantasy Analysis

Reports surfaced Sunday that Falcao has been told he will not be brought back to United next season, so it's not overly surprising that he was not included in Sunday's team. Wayne Rooney will start up front, with Robin van Persie available off the bench.
