Suarez (hamstring) was sidelined during Copa America 2016 and couldn't make an appearance for Uruguay, remaining with 45 goals in 84 caps. His absence affected Uruguay's performance significantly and the team was stunningly eliminated in the group stage, finishing third in Group C with three points.

Suarez had a stellar season on his way to winning the European Golden Boot. He showcased his exceptionally prolific skills by scoring 40 times with 16 assists and an average of 3.9 shots per game in 35 La Liga starts. The 29-year-old forward totaled the mind-blowing 58 goals in 52 appearances across all competitions, managing to score four goals in a game three times during his massive campaign.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Suarez has been ruled out for Thursday's match against Venezuela, and he may be unable to play at all during Copa America because of his hamstring injury, ESPN FC reports.

Suarez suffered the injury during the Copa del Rey final with Barcelona last month, and while there was optimism that he'd be able to play some part for Uruguay, which is why they didn't remove him from the roster, it appears less and less likely that he'll be able to feature, even with a run to the final

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Suarez (hamstring) has been ruled out for Sunday's Copa America match against Mexico, ESPN FC reports.

Suarez suffered his injury back on May 22 during the Copa del Rey final against Sevilla, and while he remains on Uruguay's roster for the tournament, it's unclear when he will be able to play, as Uruguay coach Oscar Tabarez wouldn't confirm if Suarez will be ready for Thursday's match against Venezuela. Edinson Cavani will likely lead the line in Suarez's absence.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Suarez (hamstring) will travel to the United States for the Copa America, although his availability is still in question, the Associated Press reports.

Suarez is arguably the best striker in the competition behind club teammate Lionel Messi. If the 29-year-old is sidelined for any length of time, it could severely limit Uruguay's chances of advancing beyond the group stage. In his international career, Suarez has racked up 45 goals in 84 caps, something fantasy owners will expect to see more of if he is healthy enough to return to the pitch.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Suarez suffered a hamstring injury during the Copa del Rey final against Sevilla on Sunday, putting his participation in Copa America for Uruguay in doubt, ESPN FC reports.

Suarez's absence would be a major blow to Uruguay, who can still rely on Edinson Cavani up front, but it's tough to replace a player with 59 goals in all competitions this season.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Suarez played three key passes and put in four goals on seven shots in Saturday's 6-0 rout of Sporting Gijon.

Suarez unbelievably registered four goals and three assists in his previous match, and Saturday's outburst moved him three goals ahead of the injured Cristiano Ronaldo for the La Liga lead. He was handed a pair of penalties to take, as his teammates have stated that they would like him to win the Pichichi, and he seems primed for another productive outing versus Betis this weekend.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Suarez scored a goal on three shots, two on target, and had an assist in Wednesday’s 3-1 win over Arsenal in the Champions League.

Suarez scored an incredible goal in the 65th minute from a Dani Alves cross, giving his team a 2-1 lead after Arsenal had equalized in the 51st. It was a memorable goal for the striker who is having a career year with Barcelona and is averaging a goal per match. Suarez will look to continue this incredible scoring streak on Sunday against Villarreal, a team he dominated the last time they played back in November.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Suarez was rested during Saturday's 6-0 rout of Getafe, ESPN FC reports.

The striker was reportedly unhappy with being rested, but manager Luis Enrique elected to sit him ahead of Wednesday's Champions League match versus Arsenal. As such, Suarez should be front and center as Barcelona look to finish off the Gunners.
