Silva is 31 years old, but still kicking strong at the head of a dominant PSG back line that only allowed 19 league goals this past season.

Silva has had plenty of success at PSG, but has said he would be open to a move to Barcelona if the opportunity presented itself. Even with success at PSG, Silva and teammate David Luiz were not called up to Brazil's preliminary Copa America squad.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Silva made two interceptions and played one key pass which netted him an assist in Friday's win over Bastia.

The skipper was once again rock-solid at the back for a club that has allowed just three goals in the last nine matches, and he even chipped in at the other end with his first assist of the season. Silva is one of the premier center-backs in world football, and his place in the heart of the best defense in Ligue 1 affords him quite a bit of fantasy appeal, especially in formats that place emphasis on individual defensive statistics.

Silva took one shot and provided one key pass in captaining PSG to a 1-0 win over Caen on Saturday.

The Brazilian has been a rock at the back for the Parisians this season, and Saturday marked the 15th clean sheet he has contributed to in 25 appearances in all competitions. Silva rarely contributes meaningful offensive stats, but he is quite valuable in formats that value action stats and he benefits from additional clean sheet points at a high rate. He will once again represent a serviceable fantasy option when PSG resumes league play versus Bastia on Jan. 8.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Silva has made starts at both the international and club levels, totaling 16 starts this season with two goals.

Throughout this season Silva has been a regular starter for both PSG and Brazil. One of his goals came in Copa America while the other came in French Ligue 1, where hes taken a total of nine shots this season. His position as a starter for PSG will continue, as he is one of the more experienced defensive players on the roster.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Silva has been withdrawn from the squad to face Barcelona in the Champions League on Wednesday because of a thigh injury.

Silva picked up in the injury in the 21st minute of last week's first leg, and while he was initially included in the squad despite missing Saturday's Ligue 1 match against Nice, he simply could not recover in time.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Silva scored in the 74th minute of PSG's 3-1 win over Toulouse on Saturday.

Silva's goal came on a header after some jostling in the box and was the final score of the game. It was his first goal of the season, as he's primarily a stay-at-home central defender, leaving David Luiz to sneak up every so often.

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

Silva was joined by teammate David Silva as one of the four best defenders in the world. While PSG have struggled a bit this season, Silva is without question one of the best players at his position.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Silva returned from his hamstring injury to secure a clean sheet in PSG's 3-0 win over Bordeaux.

Silva missed over two months due to a hamstring ailment, but played a full 90 minutes in Saturday's league win. The Brazilian is one of the world's best defenders and should immediately bolster a PSG team already tied for the fewest goals allowed (seven) in Ligue 1 this season.
