The most recent Ligue 1 fantasy soccer news from RotoWire.
Fantasy AnalysisLiverpool purchased the 19-year-old last summer with the agreement that they would loan him back to Lille for the entire 2014/15 season. However, with the Reds struggling to find a consistent attacking option in the wake of Daniel Sturridge's injuries, there was talk that they could pay extra to bring Origi north in January. However, it appears that will not happen and he'll have to wait until the summer to play at Anfield.
Fantasy AnalysisErding, who battled a hamstring injury earlier this season, scored three goals and had one assist in his first two Ligue 1 matches this season, but he has gone without a goal or an assist since then, which makes him a very speculative fantasy option, no matter the format.
Fantasy AnalysisLacazette has been in remarkable form of late, scoring in seven consecutive matches (five of which have come in league play), to net 11 times over that span. His 20 goals have come in 21 Ligue 1 appearances, a tally that has him eight clear of second-place Andre-Pierre Gignac of Marseille.
Fantasy AnalysisCavani took only one shot in the game and it found the back of the net. He now has eight goals on the season, which ties him with five other players for third in Ligue 1.
Fantasy AnalysisLuiz, who was named to the 2014 FIFA FIFPro World XI earlier this week, also had four tackles, two interceptions and five clearances in the match. He creates a solid defensive pairing with Thiago Silva, though PSG have recorded only three clean sheets in league play since early November.
Fantasy AnalysisSilva was joined by teammate David Silva as one of the four best defenders in the world. While PSG have struggled a bit this season, Silva is without question one of the best players at his position.
Fantasy AnalysisBen Arfa was released from his Newcastle contract last week after his loan to Hull City ended prematurely. He now returns to Ligue 1 four-and-a-half years after leaving Marseille for the Prem, and he is surely expected to get more playing time back in France that he was getting in England.
Fantasy AnalysisDiabate is Bordeaux's leading goal-scorer this season with eight, which puts him tied for third in Ligue 1. He was expected to miss time to represent Mali during the Africa Cup of Nations, but now he will not return until the tail-end of the season.
Fantasy AnalysisIbrahimovic will continue to lead the line for PSG, who will be without the suspended Edinson Cavani and Ezequiel Lavezzi for their next match, which comes Saturday against SC Bastia in Ligue 1 play.
Fantasy AnalysisPayet leads Ligue 1 with eight assists, while also scoring five goals himself. He's been particularly good of late, scoring two goals and assisting on four others in his last five Ligue 1 matches.
