Pirlo scored from beyond 30-yards out during Juve's 2-1 win over Atalanta on Friday.

Pirlo continues to be more important to Juventus than to fantasy owners, as the rocket goal was only his third in 15 Serie A appearances this season.

Pirlo tied for the team lead with three shots, though only one was on goal, during Juventus' 4-0 win over Verona on Sunday.

Pirlo has been playing well of late, with two assists in his last four league matches, though he hasn't scored since Nov. 30 against Torino. He continues to be a free-kick maestro, but his fantasy upside is somewhat limited in most leagues given that he doesn't score a ton of goals.

Pirlo scored on a free kick in stoppage time to give Juventus a 2-1 victory rival Torino Sunday.

He is simply one of the best to have ever played the game.

It was vintage Pirlo, bending a free kick inside the far post from 25 yards out to open things up in Tuesday's 3-2 Champions League win over Olympiacos.

He turned one in on the weekend against Empoli and only had to wait three days to do it again, this time to the Greek giants. This one was gigantic, as Juve are level on points with Olympiacos in Group A, with two games remaining.

Pirlo scored from a free-kick in Saturday's 2-0 win over Empoli.

Pirlo has long been a dead-ball specialist and flashed his ability from set-pieces once again Saturday. In doing so, the Italian scored his first goal of the season, which comes after he picked up an assist last weekend.

Pirlo returned from a hip injury to start Juventus' 3-2 win over Roma on Sunday, finishing with one off-target shot and two fouls drawn.

Pirlo took only one shot during the match, though he's never been a high-volume shooter anyway. He continues to be exceptionally dangerous on free kicks, but he's not a big scorer and doesn't garner a ton of assists any more, making him a bigger name than a great fantasy play.

Pirlo, who has yet to play this season due to a hip injury picked up during the preseason, could make his debut Sunday against Roma, ESPN FC reports.

Pirlo has been fully training of late, though he will likely not be quite ready to face Atletico Madrid in the Champions League on Wednesday. Sunday's match is a big one, as both sides sit at 15 points through five league matches.
