Cavani converted from the spot on his lone shot and made one dribble in Tuesday's 3-0 Ligue 1 win over Dijon.

Cavani's confidence is rising by the day. That's his third consecutive game with a goal across all competitions with a total of six notches during that span. He drew level with Alexander Lacazette at the top of the Ligue 1 scorers, with six. The striker will attempt to grow his season tally Friday when the Parisians are visiting the Violets.

September 17, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Cavani dispatched in four balls on six shots, with four on target in 45 minutes of play in Friday's 6-0 Ligue 1 rout of Caen.

Cavani needed an interstellar performance like that to get his confidence back. The powerful forward has very deep shoes to fill since the departure of Zlatan Ibrahimovic and he is more than capable of doing that. He just needs to start doing it more consistently. Regardless of how often he scores, though, with 4.3 shots per game his fantasy upside will be very high game in and game out.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Cavani scored a goal on three shot attempts during Tuesday's 1-1 draw versus Arsenal in the Champions League.

Cavani got off to a flying start by nodding home a Serge Aurier cross after just 42 seconds, but the rest of the match did not go as well for the striker. He had several golden chances to add to his tally, but he missed the goal after rounding David Ospina on one occasion and was foiled as the 'keeper knocked the ball away from him in another one-on-one scenario later in the match. While Cavani obviously would have hoped for more Tuesday, he has now scored in each of his last two starts and appears to be hitting his stride heading into Friday's league match versus Caen.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Cavani is on the bench Friday versus St. Etienne.

Jese has been started upfront over Cavani. The latter one had a late arrival from South America and has been rested on the bench.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Cavani took three shots and scored one goal during Sunday's 3-1 loss to Monaco.

Cavani nodded home a header in the 63rd minute of Sunday's match, but it wasn't enough to keep PSG from losing to Monaco. Zlatan Ibrahimovic's departure has given Cavani the keys to the Parisian attack. Expect him to continue to fill the net as long as he remains healthy.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Cavani (hamstring) has been named in the 19-man match squad for the match against Metz on Sunday, L'Equipe reports.

Cavani's return has been expected as the big question in Paris is who will fill the scoring void left by the departure of Zlatan Ibrahimovic. PSG struggled scoring a bit in their Ligue 1 opener with Hatem Ben Arfa upfront and Cavani may be rushed immediately in the starting line-up, if he's fit enough to last a whole game of course.

August 11, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Cavani (hamstring) will miss the Ligue 1 season opening match against Bastia on Friday, ESPN FC reports.

Cavani was set to be main man up front for PSG after Zlatan Ibrahimovic's departure to Manchester United. With Cavani's absence from the team, Hatem Ben Arfa, Angel Di Maria, and Jese Rodriguez appear be ready to lead PSG's attack against Bastia. When healthy, expect to see Cavani in the starting XI.

August 5, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Cavani will not play against Lyon for the Trophee des Champions on Saturday because of a hamstring injury, and he is questionable for the Ligue 1 opener on 12 Aug. against Bastia, ESPN FC reports.

Cavani is expected to take on a much bigger role this season, with Zlatan Ibrahimovic now with Manchester United, but if he's unable to play early on, Hatem Ben Arfa could line up as the No. 9.
