Mevlut Erding    F    St. Etienne
Erding scored the equalizer one minute into stoppage time to net St. Etienne a 2-2 draw with Marseille on Sunday.

Fantasy Analysis

Erding came on for Ricky van Wolfswinkel in the 72nd minute and bagged his fifth goal of the season and second in the last three league matches. He's moving in-and-out of the starting XI, which makes him a very inconsistent fantasy option.
KÚvin Berigaud    F    Evian
Berigaud scored in the 55th minute of Montpellier's 2-0 win over Guingamp on Sunday.

Fantasy Analysis

Berigaud took three shots on the day, with two landing on target, while bagging his fourth goal of the season, three of which have come since Jan. 9. While he looked to be far off from matching last year's total of 10 goals, his recent run of play could allow him to get close by season's end.
Alexandre Lacazette    F/M    Lyon
Lacazette returned from his hamstring injury to start and play 67 minutes Sunday against Nantes, finishing with two shots (none on goal) and five fouls drawn.

Fantasy Analysis

Despite the muted output, Lacazette still has a seven-goal gap for the Ligue 1 lead, and he'll look to increase it Saturday against Lille.
Adrien Rabiot    M    Paris Saint-Germain
Rabiot scored on both of his shot attempts during PSG's 3-1 win over Toulouse on Saturday.

Fantasy Analysis

The 19-year-old doesn't get much playing time, but he got the surprise start Saturday and made the most of it, netting for the firs time since Jan. 10 against Bastia. Given the talent across the board for PSG, he's unlikely to land a consistent starting job.
Thiago Silva    D    Paris Saint-Germain
Silva scored in the 74th minute of PSG's 3-1 win over Toulouse on Saturday.

Fantasy Analysis

Silva's goal came on a header after some jostling in the box and was the final score of the game. It was his first goal of the season, as he's primarily a stay-at-home central defender, leaving David Luiz to sneak up every so often.
Ben Yedder    F    Toulouse
Yedder came on in the 44th minute and scored in the 51st of Toulouse's 3-1 loss to Paris Saint-Germain on Saturday.

Fantasy Analysis

Yedder's goal broke a lengthy goal spell, as he hadn't netted in Ligue 1 play since Nov. 8 against Metz. He now has eight goals this season, but only two have come after Oct. 5, which was the final game of a four-match goal streak.
Alexandre Lacazette    F/M    Lyon
Lacazette returned to training over the weekend and is expected to play Saturday against Nantes, ESPN FC reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Despite not playing since scoring against Metz back on Jan. 25, Lacazette still has the Ligue 1 goal lead with 21, seven ahead of Marseille's Andre-Pierre Gignac.
Blaise Matuidi    M    Paris Saint-Germain
Matuidi had three accurate crosses and assisted on Edinson Cavani's goal during PSG's 1-1 draw with Chelsea in the Champions League on Tuesday.

Fantasy Analysis

Matuidi's lone shot was on target and he added another key pass in addition to his successful crosses, making him one of the better fantasy producer in a game that turned out to have limited fireworks.
Edinson Cavani    F    Paris Saint-Germain
Cavani took three shots and score in the 54th minute of PSG's 1-1 Champions League draw with Chelsea on Tuesday.

Fantasy Analysis

Cavani barely missed another goal that would have been the match-winner, but it tricked ever so closely away from goal. The score was his fifth in six Champions League matches this season.
Clinton N'Jie    F    Lyon
N'Jie netted a 78th minute equalizer to save Lyon a 1-1 draw against Lorient on Sunday.

Fantasy Analysis

N'Jie has now scored two huge goals since returning from the African Cup of Nations. Not only did the 21-year-old Cameroonian score Lyon's lone goal versus title challengers Paris Saint-Germain last weekend, but his goal against bottom-half side Lorient earned his team one point to extend their narrow league-lead Sunday. So while Lyon goal-machine Alexandre Lacazette (thigh) is nearing a return, N'Jie's recent performances, along with his impressive total of five assists, should still boost his playing opportunities in upcoming matches.
