Marquinhos    D    Paris Saint-Germain
Marquinhos signed a one-year contract extension with Paris Saint-Germain on Thursday, ESPN FC reports.

Fantasy Analysis

The deal theoretically keeps the Brazilian in Paris through the 2018-19 season, though he's been the subject of a plethora of transfer rumors, so it's possible the extension only got rid of some kind of buyout clause, allowing PSG to maximize any fee.
Max Gradel    M    St. Etienne
Gradel grabbed a brace to lead Saint Etienne to a 2-0 win over Lille on Sunday.

Fantasy Analysis

Gradel has simply been on fire since returning from the African Cup of Nations. To that point, the Ivorian has now registered a goal in five straight games, including his pair of scores Sunday.
Diego Rolan    F    Bordeaux
Rolan notched Bordeaux's lone goal during Saturday's 2-1 loss at Toulouse.

Fantasy Analysis

Rolan has enjoyed a great run of form this month, as he's now scored four goals in Bordeaux's three league matches in March. The 21-year-old has taken a large step in his development this season, as his 11-goal total through 20 league starts might suggest.
Ben Yedder    F    Toulouse
Yedder scored during the 18th minute of Toulouse's 2-1 win over Bordeaux on Saturday.

Fantasy Analysis

Yedder's goal was his third in the past five games and also brought him to 10 league goals this season. With that, the 24-year-old has now tallied 41 goals and 11 assists over the past three campaigns, making him an underrated threat in Ligue 1.
Dimitri Payet    F    Marseille
Payet turned in another solid performance versus Lens on Sunday, attempting a pair of shots and dishing out his Ligue 1-leading 12th assist of the season.

Fantasy Analysis

Payet has evolved into one of the top playmakers in Europe and will undoubtedly draw plenty of interest during the upcoming transfer window. Marseille will face a tough test in their next match against PSG on April 5.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic    F    Paris Saint-Germain
Ibrahimovic scored three times during Paris Saint-Germain's 3-1 win over Lorient on Friday.

Fantasy Analysis

Two of the three goals came from the penalty spot, but he scored the dagger in the 91st minute to send PSG to the top of Ligue 1. Ibrahimovic now has 17 goals on the season, trailing Lyon's Alexandre Lacazette by six.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic    F    Paris Saint-Germain
Ibrahimovic scored twice in PSG's 3-2 loss to Bordeaux on Sunday.

Fantasy Analysis

Ibra has been on a tear in domestic play of late, netting six goals in his last seven Ligue 1 games to bring his total to 14 on the season. He was apparently unphased by last week's red card versus Chelsea and will look to add to his totals against Lorient on Friday.
Ben Yedder    F    Toulouse
Yedder came on in the 65th minute and then scored in the 76th minute of Toulouse's 6-1 loss to Marseille on Friday.

Fantasy Analysis

Yedder has scored in two of his last three games, both of which have come as a substitute. He's taken multiple shots in six consecutive appearances, and his nine goals are tied for fifth in all of Ligue 1.
Andre-Pierre Gignac    F    Marseille
Gignac came off the bench in the 61st minute and scored his 16th league goal of the season in the 89th during Marseille's 6-1 rout of Toulouse on Friday.

Fantasy Analysis

Gignac's goal tally is good for second in Ligue 1, trailing only Lyon's Alexandre Lacazette, who has netted 21 times. Gignac has now scored off the bench in back-to-back matches, though he's likely to get his starting spot back soon given the continued excellent play.
Danijel Subasic    G    Monaco
Subasic put together yet another clean sheet as Monaco played out a scoreless draw against Paris Saint-Germain on Sunday.

Fantasy Analysis

Subasic and Monaco's defense have been impenetrable lately, as the Croatian goalkeeper has now blanked his opponents in nine of his past 10 Ligue 1 matches. Arguably enjoying the best form of any keeper across Europe, Subasic's season total of 14 clean sheets through 26 games this season is another admirable record for him to behold.
