Lavezzi could be inserted into the starting XI in place of Sergio Aguero (thigh) for Argentina's round of 16 match against Switzerland at the World Cup on Tuesday, ESPN FC reports.

Lavezzi has been a solid contributor for Argentina and could really benefit from more playing time with Lionel Messi and Gonzalo Higuain. Aguero could be out for the entire World Cup with his latest issue, leaving Lavezzi with plenty of fantasy value potential from here on out.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Lavezzi came on in the 77th minute and then assisted on Lionel Messi's game-winner one minute into stoppage time during Argentina's 1-0 win over Iran in the World Cup on Saturday.

The assist was quite generous, as Lavezzi was simply the last pass to Messi before he dribbled for a number of steps and unleashed a shot that found the back of the net with only minutes to spare. Argentina clinched a spot in the knockout stage with the win, and can wrap up the top spot in the group with a result against Nigeria on Wednesday.

Lavezzi bagged two goals Saturday, when PSG defeated Bastia 3-0.

Lavezzi has been in great form of late, evidenced by four goals in his past four league games. With that, the Argentine is doing his best to hold down a starting position even with Edinson Cavani back healthy.

Lavezzi scored in the 73rd minute of Sunday's win over Nantes.

Lavezzi's right-footed shot into the goal's top right corner proved to be the deciding play of Sunday's match. The Argentine played quite well along the Parisian's left wing and should see plenty more opportunities while opposing defenses focus on stopping the striking duo of Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Edinson Cavani.
