Neymar scored in the 36th minute of Barcelona's 2-0 win over Rayo Vallecano on Saturday, his fifth goal in his last three games in all competitions.

Neymar is in excellent form right now, netting a hat trick against Granada last Saturday before scoring against PSG in the Champions League on Tuesday, which was followed by Saturday's goal. He's an elite fantasy player and now sits behind only Cristiano Ronaldo (10) for the league lead in goals.

Neymar scored in the 56th minute of Barcelona's 3-2 loss at Paris Saint Germain in the Champions League on Tuesday.

Barca trailed 3-1 before Neymar's goal and he was unable to help them grab a point before the final whistle. Neymar is red hot right now, as he has four goals in his last two games in all competitions, and he'll look to keep it going Saturday against Rayo Vallecano in La Liga play.

Neymar bagged a hat trick in Barcelona's 6-0 La Liga victory over Granada on Saturday.

Neymar has been excellent of late, scoring all six of his La Liga goals in the last four games. His six goals gives him the team lead, one ahead of Lionel Messi, though he is still four goals behind Real Madrid's Cristiano Ronaldo for the La Liga lead.

Neymar came on for Munir El Haddadi in the 63rd minute and scored in the 79th and 84th minutes of Barcelona's 2-0 win over Athletic Club on Saturday.

Both goals were set up by Lionel Messi and marked the first scores of the season for Neymar, who also netted for Brazil during their 1-0 win over Colombia over the international break. As he gets closer to fitness, he should be back in the starting XI in the coming games.

Neymar, who dealt with an ankle injury early this season, scored a goal and assisted on another in two matches for Brazil over the international break, and he is fit for Barcelona's La Liga match against Athletic Club on Saturday.

Neymar played a small part against Villarreal in his season-debut Aug. 31, but he looks good to go now and should be considered a very solid fantasy contributor based on his scoring abilities and deep attack-minded players around him for assists.

Neymar (ankle) has been declared fit to face Villarreal on Sunday.

Neymar missed Barcelona's La Liga opener with an ankle injury, while he was also recovering from a broken vertebra he suffered during the World Cup, but he is back to fitness and should be a big part of the Barca attack once again.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Neymar suffered a grade 1 ankle sprain during training Friday and he could miss Barcelona's La Liga opener Saturday against Elche.

Neymar looked in midseason form against Club Leon in a friendly on Monday after finally being cleared from his back injury, but Barca will likely be very cautious with him to ensure he can make it through the whole campaign.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Neymar (back) had two goals and an assist during his preseason debut Monday against Club Leon.

Neymar played only the first half, but he was downright dominant in his 45 minutes. He continues to work his way back from a fractured vertebra, but if Monday's performance is any indication, he could be a fully contributor relatively early on in the season. Barcelona open their season Sunday against Elche.
