Neymar scored 31 goals and added a career-high 16 assists in all competitions this season.

The Brazilian sometimes gets lost in the shuffle playing alongside Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez, but he reminded us just what he is capable of when leaned on more heavily, scoring an impressive 11 goals and adding seven assists during Messi's eight-game injury absence. Neymar has continued to improve in each season he has spent in Spain, and at just 24 years of age, it would not be surprising to see him take another step forward next year after representing his country at this summer's Olympic games.

Neymar: Past News Updates   ( ▲ View most recent update )

April 26, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Neymar attempted four shots, played three key passes and buried an 86th-minute penalty in Saturday's 6-0 trouncing of Sporting Gijon.

Neymar and company took a back seat to Luis Suarez, who scored four goals for the second straight match, but he was sportingly handed a penalty to take by his teammate late in the match. Neymar now has a pair of goals in two matches since his five-game drought, and he looks to be hitting his stride heading into this weekend's matchup with Real Betis.

March 21, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Neymar played three key passes, put in five crosses and scored a goal on three shots during Sunday's 2-2 draw with Villareal.

The forward extended his goal streak to three games as he gave the league-leaders a 2-0 lead from the spot in the 41st minute, but the club ultimately had to settle for a draw. Neymar has taken a backseat to Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez at times this season, but he has now amassed 24 goals and 14 assists in all competitions and is on pace for his best season since moving to the Camp Nou. Barca will resume league play versus rivals Real Madrid on Apr. 2 following the international break.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Neymar had three shots, all on target, and a goal in Wednesday’s 3-1 win over Arsenal in the Champions League.

Neymar’s goal in the 18th minute opened the scoring for Barcelona who will advance to the next round of the competition after winning 5-1 on aggregate. Neymar continues to be an important part of Barcelona’s attacking trio and his 26 goals this season make him an elite option at his position.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Neymar put in four crosses and scored a brace from five shot attempts during Saturday's 6-0 thumping of Getafe.

Neymar assumed a more prominent role in the attack with Luis Suarez sitting out, and he responded with his first multi-goal game since late November. Suarez is expected to return for Wednesday's Champions League second leg versus Arsenal, but Barcelona clearly outclassed the Gunners in the first leg and there should be plenty of touches to go around as the tie shifts to the Camp Nou.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Neymar was unable to score but assisted on a goal in the 2-0 victory over Arsenal on Tuesday during the Champions League Round of 16.

Neymar continues to build on his best season of assisting for Barcelona with his fourth of the Champions League. The high amount of assists have not hurt his goal scoring either, scoring 18 goals in La Liga play.

February 22, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Neymar put in four crosses and scored the winning goal on two shots in Saturday's 2-1 triumph over Las Palmas.

The forward was held off the scoresheet in last week's win over Sporting Gijon, but he bounced back with a crucial marker that earned three points for the league leaders. Neymar has scored just twice in his last seven matches, but he still hasn't gone more than a single match without factoring into a goal since September. As such, he will remain a viable fantasy option for Tuesday's Champions League clash at Arsenal.

February 15, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Neymar scored a goal on seven shots and provided one key pass in Sunday's 6-1 steamrolling of Celta Vigo.

Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez combined for four goals and four assists on the day, but Neymar managed just the one goal. He was unlucky not to have earned a number of assists, however, as he squared a ball that Luis Suarez knocked off the post in the first half and played a deflected pass that led to a Suarez goal after smoothly rounding the keeper in the second half. Neymar's pace has slowed from the torrid stretch he put together from mid-October through the end of December, but he still has 22 goals and 12 assists this season and has been a huge part of Barcelona's devastating attack. He could begin Tuesday' match versus Sporting Gijon on the bench after such a quick turnaround, but he should be productive once again if he is selected to start.
