Alejandro Bedoya    M    Nantes
Bedoya scored from 25-yards out in the eighth minute of Nantes' 2-1 loss to Paris Saint-Germain on Saturday.

Fantasy Analysis

The goal was an incredible solo effort, but it shouldn't be overlooked that it was Bedoya's first league goal this season. He is actually out of contract soon, so he could be on the move away from France, which could drastically change his fantasy value.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic    F    Paris Saint-Germain
Ibrahimovic scored two goals during Paris Saint-Germain's 2-1 win over Nantes on Saturday.

Fantasy Analysis

Ibrahimovic was held out of Wednesday's match against Lille to rest a heel injury that has been bothering him all season, but he looked fully fit during his 90 full minutes Saturday. He now has eight goals in nine Ligue 1 matches, leaving him tied for third behind Marseille's Andre-Pierre Gignac and Lyon's Alexandre Lacazette, who are tied for first with 11 goals.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic    F    Paris Saint-Germain
Paris Saint-Germain's team doctor said Thursday that Ibrahimovic's heel injury is likely to be an issue all season, and that he will not be able to play in every game, ESPN FC reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Ibrahmimovic was held out of Wednesday's draw with Lille, and he is a candidate to sit Saturday against Nantes in order to get him as fit as possible to face Barcelona in the Champions League next Wednesday. It's certainly not good news for fantasy owners, who may best be served going with Ibrahimovic's teammate Edinson Cavani for more consistent playing time.
Edinson Cavani    F    Paris Saint-Germain
Cavani scored two goals in Tuesday's 3-1 Champions League victory over Ajax.

Fantasy Analysis

Cavani now has five goals in five Champions League matches this season. He is one of Paris Saint-Germain's best scoring options, but he will face a tough test as PSG finish group play with a trip to Barcelona. When the two teams met back in September, Cavani finished with four shot attempts (one on target) but was unable to score.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic    F    Paris Saint-Germain
Ibrahimovic slotted home a goal in the 78th minute of Tuesday's 3-1 Champions League victory over Ajax.

Fantasy Analysis

The goal was Ibrahimovic's first in the group stages of this season's Champions League, but he is always a threat to score as he has shown with five league goals this season.
Salvatore Sirigu    G    Paris Saint-Germain
Sirigu helped Paris Saint-Germain to a 3-1 Champions League victory Tuesday over Ajax despite not making a save.

Fantasy Analysis

Sirigu had two consecutive clean sheets in Champions League play coming in to the match. However, both were against Apoel. PSG will finish group play with a trip to Barcelona, which will limit Sirigu's fantasy potential.
Javier Pastore    M    Paris Saint-Germain
Pastore picked up an assist during Tuesday's 3-1 Champions League win over Ajax.

Fantasy Analysis

Pastore has been active in the Paris Saint-Germain attack this season but has just one assist during Champions League play. Despite being involved, his fantasy production has been sporadic during league play this season.
Ezequiel Lavezzi    F    Paris Saint-Germain
Lavezzi was credited with the assist on Paris Saint-Germain's first goal Tuesday in the squad's 3-1 Champions League victory over Ajax.

Fantasy Analysis

Tuesday was Lavezzi's second start in the group stages of Champions League play since returning from a hamstring injury and he responded nicely.
Divock Origi    F    Lille
Origi said he would be ready to join Liverpool in January if the club were to exercise their option to recall him from loan, reports Sky Sports.

Fantasy Analysis

Liverpool hasn't had the goals the team needs yet this season, and with Origi on loan the idea would be to bring back another striking option. The forward was expecting to stay with Lille for the entire season.
Mevlut Erding    F    St. Etienne
Erding has made three substitute appearances since returning from his hamstring injury Nov. 1 against Lille, but he has not attempted a shot.

Fantasy Analysis

Erding attempted multiple shots in six of his first seven appearances this season, but he's been very quiet since his return, which included a start in the Europa League against Inter Milan. He'll have to really turn it around if he's going to come close to extending his double-digit goal streak to three consecutive seasons.
