The most recent Ligue 1 fantasy soccer news from RotoWire.
Fantasy AnalysisBeric's relapse didn't lasted really long and he's back in the line up. If fully healthy the striker should slot upfront right away, though, there's a chance Les Verts might wanna be cautious this time around and ease him off the bench in which case he'll have a limited fantasy upside.
Fantasy AnalysisPolomat was expected to return by now, though, with a big number of starters in defense already back from their ailments and the left back Cheikh Mbengue one of them the former would hardly have a chance to start.
Fantasy AnalysisDalbert has been a key cog for the current leaders, though, he hasn't been much of a fantasy factor, outside the clean sheets, in most formats. Olivier Boscagli will probably be installed in his place as a left wing back.
Fantasy AnalysisBaysse's absence will be a huge blow to the leaders. The skipper has already two goals and with Nice owning one of the best defenses in the league he boasted huge fantasy upside. Arnaud Souquet will probably slot in his place or even Mathieu Bodmer could be shifted back in defense.
Fantasy AnalysisBalotelli didn't make the EL tie with Salzburg on Thursday after getting hurt earlier in the week and is still absent in domestic competition. There's no clarity on the extent of the ailment but the striker's absence will be a huge blow for the leaders as he's stomped six goals in six matches across all competitions. Alassane Plea, who scored the winner against Salzburg on Thursday, will get another start upfront.
Fantasy AnalysisGermain had to take a seat on the bench after he was heavily involved in midweek UCL action. The striker has been solid, thus far, this season, with three goals in nine Ligue 1 appearances (six starts). However, the return of Falcao along with the resurgence of the 17-year-old Kylian Mbappe Lottin and Guido Carrillo will probably eat off the former's playing time which could lower his fantasy upside a bit.
Fantasy AnalysisTraore is exceptionally promising talent. However, a couple of injury woes have derailed his development and in a loaded Monegasque squad he's having trouble now finding regular playing time. The youngster scored his second goal in five Ligue 1 appearances (four starts) but unless he earns more starts his fantasy upside will be limited off the bench.
Fantasy AnalysisGlik could've saved his dreadful fantasy outing if a goal he scored wasn't disallowed. The center back has played poorly of late and his bad shape has led to crucial mistakes that have prevented the Monegasque from shutouts and vital points. The veteran should be safe, for now, for his spot in the starting XI, though, until he gains back his form he doesn't present much fantasy upside.
Fantasy AnalysisJemerson also added two tackles, three aerials won and four clearances on the defensive side of the ball for an excellent all around stat line. The two conceded goals and the caution, of course, hurt his final fantasy tally but the center back has been great for the Monegasque this season and holds decent fantasy upside in formats with peripheral defensive stats.
Fantasy AnalysisLemar has been exceptional of late showing tons of promise. He's been one of the best players in the team since September scoring twice in the last four matches, getting to a total of five notches on the season in 11 appearances (seven starts) across all comps. In addition, with 1.8 shots per game, the midfielder boasts huge fantasy upside when trusted with a starting role.
