Vela scored his third La Liga goal of the season, all of which have been in the last five matches during a 3-0 win over Alaves on Saturday.

Vela's value continues to rise as he has been one of the hottest players in La Liga over the past few weeks. A matchup against a Leganes defense that have conceded 13 goals in eight matches is next.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Vela scored the only goal of Real Sociedad's 1-0 win over Real Betis on Friday.

Vela now has two goals on the season, both coming in the last three matches. His next two matches come against two of La Liga's stingiest defenses - Athletic Bilbao and Alaves. Vela's fantasy value is rising, but his next two matchups are not favorable.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Vela scored one goal on four shots in Real Sociedad's 4-1 win over Las Palmas.

Vela notched his first goal of the season on Wednesday and attempted four shots. Sociedad had an offensive explosion against the newly promoted side, and Vela took advantage. Despite the goal, Vela's value remains low as he is not a prolific goal scorer and is not yet a top scoring option for Real Sociedad.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Vela endured a disappointing season for Real Sociedad, netting just five times and adding four assists across 32 La Liga starts.

The 27-year-old underachieved last year after an excellent 2013/14 campaign, and he took another step back this season by recording his lowest goal total since moving to Spain. Vela has two years remaining on his current contract, and he should be given the opportunity to bounce back next season, although the club will likely bring in forward reinforcements as insurance against his two-year decline.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Vela is set to undergo surgery this week after he suffered a torn meniscus in Saturday's loss to Real Madrid, the club confirmed Monday.

Vela's injury is a huge blow for Sociedad, as he leads the team in goals with seven, and no other player has more than two. The injury is not expected to be season-ending, though Vela likely will only be able to play a few games near toward the end.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Vela suffered a knee injury during Saturday's match against Real Madrid, AS reports.

Vela was removed from the game after going down with the injury, while scans on the knee this week will help determine the severity of the issue.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

While he was held without a shot during Real Sociedad's surprising 1-0 win over Barcelona on Sunday, Vela had taken 20 shots in his previous four La Liga matches, scoring four goals during that span.

The Mexican striker has six goals and two assists this season, taking 37 shots (17 on goal) in his 16 appearances. He continues to start up front for David Moyes' squad and remains a decent fantasy option.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Vela scored his second goal of the season Sunday against Atletico Madrid, ending a eight-game streak without a score.

Despite not scoring on his own, Vela has two assists in his last four games. After some inconsistent playing time early in the season, Vela has locked down a spot in the starting XI, though it's unclear if his role will change at all now that David Moyes is leading the team.
