Iniesta has been deemed fit to face PSG in Tuesday's Champions League second-leg tie, the club's official website reports.

Iniesta picked up a back contusion in the first leg last week, but recovered over the weekend after sitting out Saturday's match against Valencia. Despite being cleared, he's a very limited fantasy producer, despite his importance to the club.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Iniesta lasted only 67 minutes during Barcelona's shocking 1-0 loss to Malaga on Saturday, finishing with one shot, which was on target, two crosses and 43 passes.

Iniesta isn't much of a fantasy producer in most formats because he doesn't score a lot of goals, nor grab a lot of assists.

Iniesta was named to the FIFA FIFPro World XI on Monday.

Iniesta has always been a player better than his fantasy stats, as he finished last season with just three goals and seven assists in 35 La Liga appearances, while adding just three assists in nine Champions League games. His inclusion in the World XI was a little surprising, given that Barcelona failed to win a trophy and Spain was eliminated in the group stage of the World Cup.

Iniesta assisted on Fernando Torres' 69th minute goal during Spain's 3-0 win over Australia at the World Cup on Monday.

With Spain already eliminated from knockout round contention, Iniesta will get a little bit of a summer break before rejoining Barcelona for the next La Liga season.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Iniesta scored from the spot in the 20th minute of Barcelona's 4-0 win over Granada on Saturday.

The goal was Iniesta's first of the season in all competitions and he likely got the opportunity from the spot because Lionel Messi is out through the end of 2013 with a hamstring injury.
