Pedro came on for Andres Iniesta in the 67th minute and took two shots, but neither landed on goal, during Barcelona's shocking 1-0 loss to Malaga at Camp Nou on Saturday.

With Lionel Messi, Neymar and Luis Suarez ahead of him on the depth chart, it's a little tough for Pedro to find consistent playing time, which makes him a very weak fantasy option in most formats.

Pedro picked up a goal and an assist during Barcelona's 5-0 win over Cordoba on Saturday.

Pedro subbed on for Munir El Haddadi in the 58th minute of Barcelona's 2-0 win over Rayo Vallecano on Saturday, finishing with zero shots for the first time this season.

Pedro has been splitting time with El Haddadi, who had an assist Saturday, and he's managed only one goal and zero assists through four appearances. If his playing time continues to be so inconsistent, his fantasy value will continue to be limited.

After falling behind 0-2 within the first 15 minutes of Sunday's match against Getafe, Pedro scored three first half goals to put Barcelona ahead for good, before adding an assist on one of Cesc Fabregas' two second half scores.

Pedro's three goals occurred within nine minutes of each other, totally turning the match around in favor of Barca. It's actually his second hat trick this season, as he did it against Rayo Vallecano back on September 21. His 10 goals in La Liga play trail only Diego Costa, Cristiano Ronaldo, Javi Guerra and Antoine Griezmann.

Pedro scored three goals Saturday against Rayo Vallecano in Barcelona's 4-0 win.

Pedro has started all four La Liga games he's appeared in under new manager Gerardo Martino, which looks promising considering the competition for places in Barcelona's attack. He's certainly repaid Martino's faith in him by scoring five goals in those four games along with an assist. Pedro is in top form and looks to be a quality fantasy option.

Pedro has not been the subject of a transfer bid from PSG, ESPN FC reports.

Pedro's starting position along Barcelona's left wing is under threat after the club added the services of Brazilian starlet Neymar this summer, prompting speculation that Pedro could move elsewhere. Despite some reports suggesting otherwise, Barcelona president Sandro Rosell refutes that his club has received any bid from the Parisians for Pedro.
