Marcelo swung in two crosses, made four key passes, secured three intereptions and attempted a pair of shots in Saturday's 5-0 win over Deportivo.

The 27-year-old put in a strong shift during the dominant victory, doing a little bit of everything for new manager Zinedine Zidane. Marcelo's propensity for getting forward combined with Real Madrid's general dominance makes him an elite fantasy option, and Saturday was a strong representation of what he is capable of most weeks. More of the same should be expected from Marcelo in Sunday's home matchup versus relegation-threatened Sporting Gijon.
