Neymar attempted four shots and scored a beautiful 18th minute goal in Barcelona's 3-1 Champions League victory over PSG on Wednesday.

Neymar teamed up very well with Luis Suarez and Lionel Messi to cause problems for the PSG defense all game, and the trio could have produced yet a few more goals with some luck. Neymar now has 29 goals in 34 matches on the season and will look to add to his numbers against Valencia this weekend.

Neymar took only one shot, but contributed four key passes during Barcelona's 3-1 win over Granada on Saturday.

Neymar was an unused substitute for Barcelona's 5-0 win over Cordoba on Saturday.

Pedro started in place of Neymar on Saturday and finished with a goal and an assist. The playing time has been a bit troubling for fantasy owners, as Neymar has made just two appearances in December. He'll look to get back on the pitch Jan. 4 against Real Sociedad.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Neymar scored for the 11th time this season as Barcelona cruised to a 5-1 win over Sevilla on Saturday.

The beginning of the 2014-15 campaign has shown growth in Neymar's game. The flash and dash wing play is still there, but the Brazilian superstar has shown a willingness to attack the goal and his movement off the ball has come a long way.

Neymar, who was surprisingly left out of the starting lineup, came on and scored to spark a late Barca rally in Saturday's 2-1 comeback win over Almeria.

Barca needed a shake up after a sleepy two week spell. It was a completely different game once Neymar and fellow sub Luis Suarez came on in the second half. When you see a superstar like Neymar on the bench, you have to worry about injury or trouble with the manager. Let's chalk Saturday up to manager Luis Enrique thinking he could get some rest for his star during this three game in eight days stretch.

Neymar scored his ninth La Liga goal during Barcelona's 3-1 loss to Real Madrid on Saturday.

Neymar trails only Cristiano Ronaldo for the La Liga league, though the Madrid marksman has as many goals as Neymar and Lionel Messi (seven) combined this season. Nevertheless, Neymar remains an elite fantasy option, and could be in for more goals with Luis Suarez the distributor Saturday.

Neymar scored in the 36th minute of Barcelona's 2-0 win over Rayo Vallecano on Saturday, his fifth goal in his last three games in all competitions.

Neymar is in excellent form right now, netting a hat trick against Granada last Saturday before scoring against PSG in the Champions League on Tuesday, which was followed by Saturday's goal. He's an elite fantasy player and now sits behind only Cristiano Ronaldo (10) for the league lead in goals.
