Verratti tallied an assist on three key passes and added three dribbles in Wednesday's Champions League 3-1 away win over Ludogorets.

Verratti made a magnificent flick to find Blaise Matuidi behind the Bulgarians' defense for the equalizer in the closing stages of the first half. That was the midfielder's best game, thus far. He hasn't been as consistent as expected, though, and it will be hard to be completely trusted in fantasy until starts making that kind of games more often.

Marco Verratti: Past News Updates   ( ▲ View most recent update )

September 22, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Verratti (calf) didn't make the 18-man squad for the clash with Toulouse on Friday.

Verratti has started individual training but is still not ready for full time action. Javier Pastore will probably get another start behind Edison Cavani.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Verratti (undisclosed) didn't make the 18-man squad for Tuesday's Ligue 1 clash with Dijon.

Verratti hasn't been training with the rest of the squad this week and is not ready for full time action. There's still no timetable for his return. Verratti recently returned from a long-term injury and any relapse could be bad news.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Verratti came on in the 65th minute to win four tackles, secure two interceptions and score a goal on two shots during Sunday's 3-0 victory over Metz.

Verratti received a bit of help on his goal, as his strike from the edge of the box took a deflection on the way in, but it capped off what was an impactful substitute appearance nonetheless. The midfield engine has appeared as a substitute in each of PSG's three competitive matches this season as he recovers from groin surgery, but he should enter the starting XI soon enough, with a fixture versus Monaco next up on Sunday.

Verratti played 23 minutes off the bench in Saturday's Trophee des Champions match against Lyon.

While Verratti will need some time before he regains his full form and fitness, it's definitely a great news that he's back on time for the beginning of the season. Once he's back in the swing of the things PSG will count on him immensely to take the team to another level.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Verratti is in the squad for Saturday's Trophee des Champions match against Lyon despite not playing at all during the preseason while he recovered from May groin surgery, ESPN FC reports.

Verratti signed a new long-term contract extension with the French giants this week, so he's clearly part of their plans despite rampant transfer rumors. Nevertheless, it'll likely take him a few weeks to get his fitness back after the surgery, so his short-term fantasy value is limited.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Verratti had an assist and was issued a yellow card in Tuesday's 2-0 victory over Malmo FF in the Champions League.

Verratti helped open the scoring, getting Angel Di Maria the ball in space on the flank and letting Di Maria do the rest. The assist was Verratti's first in six appearances across all competitions after 10 assists in 32 Ligue 1 appearances. Discipline has been a problem for him as he accumulated 18 yellows across 48 appearances in all competitions last year.

Verratti was credited with an assist on Claudio Marchisio's 35th minute goal during Italy's 2-1 win over England in their opening match of the World Cup on Saturday.

Verratti appeared to be playing the ball to Andrea Pirlo, but the Juve midfielder stepped over the ball, leaving it perfectly for Marchisio to fire home a rocket past England keeper Joe Hart. Verratti did not take a shot during the match, but he remains a decent contributor off corners.
