RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Balotelli hammered a pair of scores on four shots, with all on target in Wednesday's 4-0 Ligue 1 romp over Monaco.

Balotelli was clinical and made the most of the little chances Nice had to take his team at the top of the league. He looks very quick, sharp and thirsty and with four goals in two Ligue 1 matches will hold an enormous fantasy upside this season. Next up are dates with Nancy and Lorient, two of the bottom four teams in the league.

Balotelli (rest) is back in the 18-man squad for Wednesday's derby with Monaco.

Balotelli has been rested and is fully operational for the big clash with the Monegasque. After a brace in his debut the striker would attempt to spoil the stellar run of the visitors.

Balotelli didn't make the 18-man squad for Sunday's Ligue 1 match with Montpellier.

Balotelli has been rested after playing two full matches within a week. The striker recently arrived at Nice and was deployed immediately after not playing at all before that. With two more matches next week, though, expect him to be right back in the fray. Younes Belhanda could grab his first start as number 10 behind the striker.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Balotelli converted a penalty kick for a brace on seven shots (four on target) two crosses in Sunday's breathtaking 3-2 win over Marseille.

Balotelli put on a show right off the gate. The striker hit a penalty shot with poise and confidence to celebrate his return to regular football. He had a myriad of missed chances to double his tally before he headed home the equalizer with about 10 minutes left in the game. Nice seem primed to improve significantly on offense with the new acquisitions and Balotelli could feast on that turning into the star of Ligue 1 this season.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Balotelli signed with Nice on Wednesday after a free transfer from Liverpool.

Balotelli was a complete flop at Liverpool, and with the club unable to find another team willing to pay them for the striker, he heads to Nice on a free. He'll get a great opportunity to resurrect his career in France, but it'll take some time for fantasy managers to trust the 26-year-old.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Balotelli once again struggled to do anything for his club this past season, scoring once for AC Milan in 20 appearances, eight of them starts. He now has two goals in the last two seasons with Milan and Liverpool.

With Balotelli still only 25 years old, the question becomes where will he go next? If he can show any kind of positives in Euro 2016, there will undoubtedly be a team that wants him and believes they can get the most out of him. Whether that's with Jurgen Klopp and Liverpool or someone else, remains to be seen. He has the skill set to be a good player somewhere, but until he shows that, his fantasy worth is minimal.

AC Milan boss Cirstian Brocchi told Baloteli that he has no more chances to secure a permanent move to the club, reports the Daily Mail.

Balotelli has just a few games remaining to impress the new boss, but is close to having to find a new club for the coming seasons. He has 16 appearances and one goal for the club in the current season.
