RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Rafael (thigh) was named in the 18-man squad for Friday's Ligue 1 match with Nice.

Rafael has had a very positive season before the injury. The right wing-back has only had one assist with no goals but has been filling the rest of his stats line regularly galloping along the whole right flank. If he's fit enough to start he'll have a decent fantasy upside against the more defensive-minded Nice team.

Rafael (thigh) resumed training Friday, according to L'Equipe.

Rafael is moving ahead of schedule and is already back in training. With a full week of practice to the right back's disposal coach Bruno Genesio is hopeful he'll have the player available for the clash with Nice on 14 Oct.

Rafael (thigh) could be out for about three weeks, according to L'Equipe.

Coach Bruno Genesio announced the news himself. Rafael's absence would be yet another blow for Lyon who can't seem to catch a break of injuries. Jordi Gaspar started in the right wing-back's place but was utterly unimpressive.

Rafael (thigh) has been ruled out for Tuesday's UCL clash versus Sevilla, according to

The extent of his injury is still unclear. With the international break approaching rapidly however he may be preserved and given sufficient time to recover. Jordy Gaspar is one of the options to replace him, though, with Lyon playing with wing-backs they could use multiple options on the right flank.

Rafael was substituted off seven minutes before the half-time whistle due to a thigh strain during Saturday's match loss to Lorient, ligue 1 reports.

The right-back has had a terrific start to the season so far for a club that sits in the middle of the table. Coach Bruno Genesio said that the reason for the early substitution was to keep the injury from worsening. This injury could make him doubtful for the Champions League trip to Sevilla on Tuesday.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Rafael tallied an assist on two key passes, one shot off target, four crosses and six tackles in Wednesday's 5-1 Ligue 1 drubbing of Montpellier.

Rafael registered his first assist of the season after a stellar performance. He ran wild back and forth taking active part both on offense and defense and ending up with an outstanding fantasy tally. Another one could be coming his way Saturday when visiting the rock-bottom Lorient.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Rafael tallied an assist on seven crosses, a clean sheet, one shot off target, two tackles and received a yellow card in Wednesday's Champions League 3-0 victory over Dinamo Zagreb.

Rafael had a fantastic inclusion in the game, especially in the first 30 minutes. He had a few surgical crosses, with one of them finding the vicious header of Corentin Tolisso for the opener of the game. Next CL challenge will be a tough visit to Sevilla where the right back may not be able to fly forward so often.
