Cavani took five shots off target and completed one dribble in Sunday's scoreless draw to Marseille.

Cavani did well to move around off the ball and present himself with opportunities to score. However, he was critically ineffective with the ball making unforgivable misses, which his team could sorely regret for at the later stages of the season. The striker will try to bounce back Friday versus Lille.

Fantasy Champions League: Wednesday Cheat Sheet

Edinson Cavani has put the PSG attack on his shoulders after the departure of Zlatan Ibrahimovic this summer, and Alex Spalding says the PSG striker has an ideal fantasy matchup Wednesday against FC Basel.

October 19, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Cavani assisted and slotted home a penalty kick in Wednesday's 3-0 win against Basel. He finished with three shots and two successful tackles.

In a favorable matchup, Cavani performed well and that's all you can ask from him. He has nine goals in eight league matches and continues to be a threat to score no matter the opponent.

October 15, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Cavani scored the winning goal on five shots in Saturday's 2-1 triumph over Nancy.

Cavani was the only consistent attacking threat, accounting for nearly all of his side's shot attempts, and he scored the eventual winner with a superb lob after chasing down a poor back pass in the 18th minute. El Matador now has an astounding 11 goals in his last seven matches and will look to carry his form over to the Champions League Wednesday versus FC Basel.

October 1, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Cavani bagged a pair of scores on four shots, with all on target in Saturday's 2-0 home win over Bordeaux.

Cavani had a stellar first half. His two clinical finishes early in the game - one in the air and one on the ground gave PSG the crucial win. Cavani's scoring streak now goes to 11 goals in eight matches across all competitions and he goes as a lone scoring leader in Ligue 1, with eight notches. The striker is a must-own, must-start right now in fantasy.

September 28, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Cavani bagged a pair of scores on six shots (two on target) and two key passes in Wednesday's Champions League 3-1 away win over Ludogorets.

Cavani was clinical in the second half to put the Bulgarian Eagles on their knees after a very tight first 45 minutes. The striker notched his third score in two UCL matches and his ninth in seven PSG matches across all competitions to keep his incredible streak running hot.

September 21, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

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.

September 13, 2016

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.
