The most recent Ligue 1 fantasy soccer news from RotoWire.
Fantasy AnalysisMotta made his fourth appearance at Euro 2016, his third as a substitute as he replaced Daniele De Rossi in the 54th minute. Expect to see De Rossi and Marco Parolo manning Italy’s center midfield in place of the suspended Motta.
Fantasy AnalysisAfter 23 goals and 10 assists for Olympique Marseille in Ligue 1 across all comps, Batshuayi is the odd-man-out up front in the starting XI. However, he was able to come in off the bench in the 76th minute and near-instantly change the game. Two minutes after coming on, he poked home an Eden Hazard cross to double Belgium's advantage and in just 15 minutes of play, helped Belgium grow their advantage from 1-0 to 4-0.
Fantasy AnalysisFernandes had a very solid campaign as a regular starter with Rennes last season. The 29-year-old holding midfielder, though, doesn't typically bring much fantasy upside and now he finished the season with one goal, one assist and eight yellow cards in 33 Ligue 1 starts.
Fantasy AnalysisMoubandje had a rotation player role with Toulouse last season. The 26-year-old left back had a minimal fantasy production even when on the field recording five clean sheets, 44 tackles, four yellow and one red cards in 23 Ligue 1 appearances (20 starts).
Fantasy AnalysisGrosicki was a bit fortunate to see his past land at Jakub Blaszczykowski's feet before the latter put Poland ahead in the 39th minute, but he was very effective nonetheless. He has alternated starts with bench appearances through the first four matches of the tournament, but Saturday's performance could very well earn him another start for Thursday's quarterfinal match versus Portugal.
Fantasy AnalysisBedoya had a rotation player role with Nantes last season. The 29-year-old winger managed to find some production, though, despite limited opportunities and finished the season with three goals, three assists and an average of 1.6 shots per game in 28 Ligue 1 appearances (22 starts).
Fantasy AnalysisThe Monaco keeper didn't see a shot on target for the first 100 minutes during a relatively dull game played virtually entirely in the middle-third of the pitch. However, at the end of the match, Portugal hit an extra gear and found the back of the net just three minutes shy of heading to penalties. After a strong season at Monaco, they'll begin in the third-qualification round of the Champions League next season as they look to build off last season's third place finish in Ligue 1.
Fantasy AnalysisThe forward is currently with Belgium at the Euro 2016 tournament, and has been attracting interest from a number of clubs. He scored 24 goals in Ligue 1 last season and is expected to make his decision after Euro 2016.
Fantasy AnalysisLenjani found playing time hard to come by last season with Nantes. Even when on the field, though, the 26-year-old left midfielder wasn't much effective recording merely one goal, one assist and averaging one shot per game in 20 Ligue 1 appearances (15 starts).
Fantasy AnalysisCana had a rotation player role last season with Nantes. The 32-year-old center back didn't have much to offer in fantasy either totaling for seven clean sheets, 28 tackles and five yellow cards in 21 Ligue 1 appearances (20 starts).
