Neymar provided an assist on two key passes, played four crosses, and put his lone shot on target in Wednesday's 2-1 Champions League group stage win against Borussia Monchengladbach.

Neymar chipped a precise pass to Arda Turan, who slammed the ball into the top netting for Barcelona's first goal of the match just after the hour mark. The Brazilian forward now has four goals and six assists across all competitions and remains an elite fantasy option. Barcelona face Celta Vigo this Sunday.

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

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Neymar scored two goals on five shots (two on target) in Saturday's 5-0 victory over Sporting Gijon.

With no Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez taken off after 72 minutes, Neymar sliced up the Sporting Gijon defense in the closing 10 minutes against a 10-man defense. Since returning from the Olympics, Neymar's been nothing short of outstanding, picking up four goals and six assists in five matches across all comps with three of the four goals coming in La Liga play. Barca has a crowded week upcoming ahead of the international break with a trip to Germany to take on Borussia Monchengladbach before heading to Celta Vigo on Sunday.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Neymar grabbed his first league goal in Saturday's 5-1 win at Leganes. He finished with two shots and two corners taken.

This was only Neymar's second league match so this being his first goal wasn't much of a surprise. That said, Luis Suarez and Lionel Messi look more in tune than Neymar at the moment.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Neymar scored a goal on two shots (both on target) and added four assists on seven key passes during Barcelona's 7-0 win over Celtic on Tuesday.

Often labelled as a selfish player, Neymar was the most collaborative player of Barcelona in this game as evidenced by his four assists. The Brazilian star is one of the most versatile forwards in the world, and we should continue to expect big things from him in the future.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Neymar (rest) is in the starting XI for Saturday's match with Deportivo Alaves.

Neymar will lead Barcelona's attack, while Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez will start Saturday's match on the bench.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Neymar is available to play Saturday against Alaves.

After returning from Brazil following their World Cup qualifier, Neymar has apparently trained enough with Barca to be available for Saturday's match, which figures to be quite one-sided with Neymar, Lionel Messi (groin) and Luis Suarez available.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Neymar expects himself to make his first appearance of the season on Saturday against Alaves, ESPN FC reports.

Neymar has spent more than 100 days away from the club with his international squad and taking time to rest. However, he said, "I see myself playing against Alaves, but first to go home, rest and then get back into training." Luis Enrique will ultimately have the final decision on whether the Brazilian finds himself in the starting 11 or on the bench. Other questions are also around Luis Suarez who is returning late from the break and Lionel Messi who is struggling with a groin injury.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

FC Barcelona have confirmed that Neymar will return to the club in September after the international break, according to Sky Sports.

Neymar was expected to return to Spain immediately after the end of the Olympics soccer competition. However, he's been called up for Brazil's World Cup qualifiers in the beginning of September and the Catalans have allowed him to extend his stay a little bit more.
