Alba won four tackles and secured a pair of interceptions in Saturday's 6-0 win over Getafe.

The fullback was quiet in the attacking third as Barcelona's attack ran rampant, but he took care of business on the defensive side to secure the clean sheet. Alba remains a strong fantasy option due to his place in a dominant team, and he should be in for another good outing Wednesday when Barca host Arsenal in the Champions League.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Alba won two tackles and earned an assist from his lone key pass in Saturday's win over Las Palmas.

The 26-year-old has missed seven league matches this season, but his heavy involvement in the attack already has him up to four assists. That type of production makes Alba an attractive fantasy play most weeks, and he should remain in the starting XI as Barca travel to take on Arsenal in the first leg of their Champions League tie on Tuesday.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Alba took a beautiful pass from Ivan Rakitic and crossed it into the box for Luis Suarez to volley home the only goal of the game in Barcelona's 1-0 win over Athletic Club on Sunday.

Alba continues to be a fine attacking defender, though he's always much more likely to get an assist than a goal. The Barcelona defense is always solid, so Alba could be in line for a fine clean-sheet record this season in addition to any assists.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Alba will be sidelined for 10 days after picking up a hamstring injury during Friday's Euro 2016 qualifier against Ukraine.

Given the timing, Alba is a serious doubt to face Celta Vigo next Sunday, but may return April 8 against Almeria.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Alba picked up an assist on one of Luis Suarez's two goals during Barcelona's 2-1 Champions League win at Manchester City on Tuesday.

Alba tied Dani Alves for the team lead with four crosses, while finishing with two key passes, including the assist. He remains a solid contributor, as the assist Tuesday was his fifth of the season.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Alba now has three clean sheets in three La Liga matches this season following Saturday's 2-0 victory of Athletic Club.

Barcelona have been extremely stingy to start the season and Alba is locked into a backline role, which allows him to benefit from the team shutout. He has taken just one shot in league play, but he's not expected to be heavily involved on the attack anyway.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Alba, who is dealing with blisters on his feet and a toothache, will be fit to face Netherlands on Friday in Spain's opening match of the World Cup, Sky Sports reports.

The issues were never considered serious and Alba will likely resume his regular role with the Spain squad against a strong Dutch attack headlined by Robin van Persie.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Alba, who was almost fully recovered from a thigh injury, has sustained a new injury to his hamstring during training and is expected to miss the next six weeks, ESPN FC reports.

Alba was set to return to the pitch for Barca's upcoming La Liga match against Osasuna on October 19 but now it appears he'll be out until December. It's a big blow, although Barca have enough talent to ride it out until he's fully healthy.
