Rodriguez scored eight goals and added eight assists in 31 appearances in all competitions this season.

The midfielder suffered a foot injury and missed five weeks early in the season, but even after he came back, he failed to solidify himself in the first XI and started just 20 total matches. Rodriguez is clearly not a large player in the plans of manager Zinedine Zidane, as he started just two of the season's final seven matches and didn't see a single minute in the Champions League final. He is likely to move on this summer and should still command a hefty fee.

April 19, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

James put in seven crosses, provided an assist from four key passes and scored a goal on three shots during Saturday's 5-1 win over Getafe.

James set up Karim Benzema for the opening goal, and he bagged the fourth by tucking home a Lucas Vazquez pass in the second half. James now has three goals and an assist in his last three starts, and he could be in for an expended role after Gareth Bale left the match with an injury. Real Madrid will next play Wednesday versus Villarreal.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Rodriguez put in nine crosses, played three key passes and scored a goal on three shots during Saturday's 4-0 win over Eibar.

Rodriguez was extremely involved as a facilitator Saturday, but his greatest highlight came when he buried a freekick from the top of the box to open the scoring in the fourth minute. Saturday represented one of the best all-around efforts of the season for Rodriguez, and he will look to carry this momentum into Tuesday's monumental Champions League match versus Wolfsburg.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

James scored a goal in the 2-0 win against AS Roma on Tuesday, during the Champions League Round of 16.

The goal Tuesday was James’ first in the Champions League this season. James continues to struggle to regain his form from last year, however, with only nine goals and eight assists in all competitions.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

James took three shots, provided two crosses and scored in the 37th minute of Saturday's win over Athletic Bilbao.

The playmaker has scored in bunches this season, and he appears to be entering another productive patch, as he now has two goals and two assists in his last four matches. James continues to start in place of the injured Gareth Bale, and he will likely feature once more as Los Blancos visit Roma to kick off their Champions League Round of 16 tie on Wednesday. While he has a respectable five goals and six assists in 11 league starts this season, James has played just 65 minutes in the Champions League, but he could be poised to provide strong returns if he is deployed as one of the front three again.

January 25, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

James attempted a pair of shots, put in five crosses and earned one vital assist from five key passes in Sunday's 1-1 draw with Betis.

The playmaker has struggled to stay on the field this season, but Sunday's helper gave him an impressive total of five, to go along with three goals, in just eight La Liga starts. James is sometimes lost in the shuffle of so many superstars around him, but he certainly has the talent to become a regular producer for as long as he can stay healthy. He will look to build off of this performance in Sunday's fixture with Espanyol.

January 15, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

James is struggling to replicate last season with only three goals and four assists in 10 La Liga matches.

After missing two months early on in the season, due to a torn thigh muscle, James has struggled to keep pace with his numbers for last year where he score 13 goals and had 13 assists for Real Madrid. He has struggled to get anything going after his injury, scoring only one goal in that time. James has also struggled to be consistent this season with three of his four assists coming in a single match. It is likely that James' numbers will improve in the second half of the season, but he will likely not match what he did last year.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

James (thigh) has been ruled out of action with an injury sustained on international duty, ESPN reports.

James has begun the season in great form which will make this latest injury much harder to take. Analysis of the thigh tear he sustained whilst playing for Colombia has concluded that it wasn't as minor as first hoped. However the total length of time he will be sidelined remains unclear.
