Fantasy La Liga: Sunday Cheat Sheet

There are some big players missing from Sunday's three-game La Liga slate, but that doesn't mean the fantasy points won't be flowing.

Karim Benzema: Past News Updates   ( ▲ View most recent update )

August 8, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Benzema (hip) has been ruled out for UEFA Super Cup clash versus Sevilla on Tuesday, ESPN FC reports.

Manager Zinedine Zidane has not included Benzema in the group for the match as the striker has just returned from the hip injury he suffered recently. Benzema, however, hasn't played in any of Real's pre-season matches and Zidane doesn't want to take any chances. He should be good to go for the season opener on Aug 21.

August 7, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Benzema (hip) trained for the second consecutive day Sunday, and he could play in the UEFA Super Cup against Sevilla on Tuesday, AS reports.

Benzema has apparently been unable to train with the first team, however, which makes it more likely than not that he'll sit out in preparation for the La Liga opener on Aug. 21 against Real Sociedad.

July 30, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Benzema has been bothered by a hip injury of late, but he is expected to be fit for the UEFA Super Cup against Sevilla on Aug. 9, ESPN FC reports.

Benzema's presence will be important for Los Blancos, as Cristiano Ronaldo could miss at least the first La Liga match of the season due to the knee injury he suffered during the European Championship final. Benzema remains an elite fantasy option, even in Ronaldo's shadow.

May 30, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Benzema took two shots (both on target) in 76 minutes of play in Saturday's Champions League final penalty shoot-out win over Atletico Madrid.

Benzema will finish his season with 24 goals, seven assists and 3.6 shots per game on average in 27 La Liga appearances (26 starts).

May 14, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Benzema (knee) has returned to the starting lineup for Saturday's match against Deportivo.

After missing last week's Champions League match against Manchester City, Benzema is fit and back as Real Madrid try to nab the title away from Barcelona on the final day.

May 3, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Benzema (knee) has been ruled out for Wednesday's Champions League match against Manchester City, UEFA.com reports.

Benzema appeared to be a long shot to be fit enough to face the Citizens, and his absence could allow James Rodriguez to get a spot in the first XI.

May 2, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Benzema (knee) is questionable for Wednesday's Champions League match against Manchester City, Marca reports.

Benzema is likely to face a late fitness test after being withdrawn early in last week's first leg. On the plus side for Madrid, Cristiano Ronaldo is expected to return from his hamstring injury, while Gareth Bale has played very well of late.
