Gignac scored for the fourth consecutive match in Sunday's 2-1 loss to Tijuana.

The 30-year-old earned League MVP honors last season, and he has picked up right where he left off, with six goals in his first five this time around. Gignac has taken well to his move to Mexico and is seemingly a weekly goal threat at this point. Tigres will face Queretaro on Friday.

Gignac rattled off six shots and scored a crucial extra time goal in Tigres' playoff loss to Pumas on Sunday.

The Frenchman earned MVP honors in the Mexican league with 15 goals in 21 matches, and his strike nearly earned Tigres the trophy before Pumas leveled and won on penalties. Gignac has stated that he is happy to be playing in Mexico, and it remains to be seen if he will be snapped up for a loan move during the upcoming transfer window.

Gignac is off to a fast start this season, with nine goals in 11 starts.

This quick start for Gignac is showing that hes continuing from where he left off last season. He has tested opposing goalkeepers this season with 49 shots, 22 of which were on target and he will likely continue in a starting role, looking to lead his team in goals this season if he can maintain this form.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Gignac enjoyed the most prolific season of his professional career in 2014-15 as he tallied 23 goals and two assists in all competitions.

The 29-year-old could move on in search of Champions League football after a fourth-place finish from Marseille, who could be ready to cash in on his big season with several clubs interested in the Frenchman. Gignac's future is far from certain at this point, but he is likely to command a hefty transfer fee if he does move on.

Gignac came off the bench in the 61st minute and scored his 16th league goal of the season in the 89th during Marseille's 6-1 rout of Toulouse on Friday.

Gignac's goal tally is good for second in Ligue 1, trailing only Lyon's Alexandre Lacazette, who has netted 21 times. Gignac has now scored off the bench in back-to-back matches, though he's likely to get his starting spot back soon given the continued excellent play.

Gignac came off the bench to score his 15th Ligue 1 goal of the season in the 63rd minute of Marseille's 3-2 loss to Caen on Friday.

Gignac's score put the hosts up 2-1, but Caen answered back in the 70th and 87th minutes to steal all three points. The goal was just his second in 2015, but his total of 15 puts him only behind Alexandre Lacazette's 21 in all of France.

Gignac scored a second-half goal to clinch Marseille's 1-0 win over Evian Thonon Gaillard on Saturday.

Gignac attempted a game-high six shots Saturday, when he found the scoresheet for the second time in three matches. Overall, the burly striker now totes 14 goals on the campaign, which ranks second in Ligue 1 at the moment. With Marseille aiming to stay hot in the French title race, Gignac figures to be an important figure moving forward, making Saturday's goal an encouraging sign for manager Marcelo Bielsa.

Gignac had a first-half brace during Marseille's French Cup match against Grenoble on Sunday, but the Ligue 1 leaders fell in penalties.

Gignac has been in excellent form this season, as his 12 Ligue 1 goals in 19 appearances rank him behind only Lyon's Alexandre Lacazette (17). If there is a little concern, it's that 10 of Gignac's league goals came before November.
