Rodriguez assisted on Gareth Bale's 20th-minute goal during Real Madrid's 5-1 La Liga win over Elche on Tuesday.

Rodriguez now has an assist in back-to-back games after he picked one up against Deportivo La Coruna on Saturday while also netting himself. The 2013/14 Ligue 1 assist-leader is starting to come into his own at Real Madrid and with all the weapons around him, he remains a very solid fantasy option.

Rodriguez had a goal and an assist during Real Madrid's 8-2 win La Liga win over Deportivo La Coruna on Saturday.

Rodriguez has now scored in back-to-back matches for Real Madrid, with the initial one coming during their 5-1 Champions League match against FC Basel on Tuesday.

Rodriguez scored in the 36th minute of Real Madrid's 5-1 Champions League victory over FC Basel on Tuesday.

Rodriguez still hasn't scored for Madrid in La Liga play, though it's not for lack of effort, as he's taken 10 shots in three games, so it's only a matter of time before he finds the back of the net.

Rodriguez took two shots, with one on goal, during Real Madrid's 4-2 loss to Real Sociedad on Sunday.

Rodriguez has now taken six shots through two games, but he has yet to open his account for Madrid since his summer transfer from AS Monaco. Rodriguez is a vibrant talent who can certainly put the ball in the back of the net, although it should be noted that he led Ligue 1 in assists last season.

Rodriguez led Real Madrid with four shots, including two on goal, during Monday's 2-0 win over Cordoba.

There are tons of expectations on Rodriguez this season after Madrid paid more than £60 million for him this summer. If he continues to put up the shots he did Monday, it's only a matter of time before he puts one in the back of the net. However, don't sleep on his passing, as he led Ligue 1 in assists last season while with AS Monaco.

AS Monaco announced Tuesday that Rodriguez has left the club to join Real Madrid.

Rodriguez has been linked heavily with Real Madrid since the World Cup when the Colombian mentioned that it was his dream to play for the Spanish giants. At that point it was only a transfer fee negotiation keeping him from joining the club. After joining Monaco last season on a €60 million move from Porto, Rodriguez will head to Real Madrid for a reported fee of £70 million. He is an exciting player that should be an excellent fantasy option on a team that also includes Cristiano Ronaldo and Gareth Bale, among numerous others.

AS Monaco have agreed to a £70 million transfer fee to send Rodriguez to Real Madrid, Goal.com reports.

Fresh off a Golden Boot at the World Cup, Rodriguez will make his dream move to Real Madrid just one year after making a €60 million euro move to Monaco. Rodriguez has shown that he can be one of the best in the world, and he'll get a chance as a new Galactico to be a major fantasy contributor this season.

Rodriguez won the Golden Boot at the World Cup in Brazil, netting six times in the tournament, finishing one ahead of German star Thomas Muller.

Rodriguez had an excellent tournament and was very much in the discussion for the Golden Ball Award, which eventually went to Argentina's Lionel Messi. Rodriguez was purchased by AS Monaco last summer for the hefty sum of €60 million, although he has been linked with Real Madrid this summer, one of only a few clubs that could afford that kind of price tag.
