Ramos had a very poor game and was at fault for the goal as he played the full 90 minutes Saturday in Dortmund's 1-0 home defeat to Hamburg.

You have to feel sorry for Ramos, who has been restricted to substitute appearances of late to prove his worth. It seemed like that was about to change as the Colombian impressed Wednesday when he scored two goals from the bench against Anderlecht and was rightly rewarded with a start in the Bundesliga. However he failed miserably in taking his opportunity, looking poor in possession and missing a point-blank diving header in the second half. To make matters worse he gave the ball away cheaply to allow Hamburg to break away for their goal. Expect Ramos to return to the bench for the next encounter.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Ramos came on as a 65th minute substitute and scored twice Wednesday as Dortmund beat Anderlecht 3-0 in Champions League Group D.

It was a star performance by Ramos who only came on mid-way through the second half but managed to get a brace. Perhaps unfairly benched after recent lively displays, he replaced Kevin Grosskreutz and waited just four minutes before latching on to a superb Lukasz Piszczek cross. Ten minutes later it was two for the Colombian who expertly turned and curled a shot past Silvio Proto in the Anderlecht goal. Ramos produced an electrifying performance and was a continuous threat, making a very strong case for starting in Saturday's Bundesliga game against Hamburg.

Ramos assisted for his team's only goal and worked tirelessly as another poor Dortmund display Saturday led to a 2-1 defeat at Schalke.

The Colombian has had to be patient to get his chance in the starting line-up since his summer move from Hertha Berlin. He has recently had to play second fiddle to fellow new signing Ciro Immobile but completely outshone the cumbersome forward in this showing and starred in an otherwise poor Dortmund team. He worked extremely hard in both attack and defence, set-up Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang for Dortmund's only goal and was unlucky to have a penalty appeal turned down in the second half. After such a dynamic 90 minutes expect Ramos to get the nod to start the next game.

Ramos was held out of Borussia Dortmund's 2-0 loss to Bayer Leverkusen on Saturday after picking up a knock, reports.

The knock isn't expected to keep Ramos out for long, and he could return as early as next weekend against FC Augbsurg. With Robert Lewandowski leaving for Bayern Munich this summer, Ramos is a big part of the group of players brought in to fill the void.

Borussia Dortmund have announced that Ramos will join them this summer for an undisclosed fee, the BBC reports.

Ramos will likely slot right into the starting XI to replace Robert Lewandowski, who is joining Bayern Munich this summer. It's a good get for Dortmund, as Ramos has 16 Bundesliga goals this season, trailing only Lewandowski and Mario Mandzukic.

Ramos scored a brace during Friday's match against Werder Bremen.

Ramos played with such skillful agility and awareness that Werder Bremen's subpar defense simply couldn't keep up. This result re-solidifies Hertha's undisputed leader as one of the best attacking forwards in the Bundesliga. His fantasy value continues to gain momentum. He now has his 10th goal of the season.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Ramos is fit to play an attacking role against Werder Bremen on Friday.

The Colombian striker is fifth amongst the league's top scorers. He has put together a stunning tally of eight goals through matchday 15. Werder Bremen are coming off of their worst defeat to-date; Ramos' creative play could exploit the same weaknesses that Bayern Munich exposed last Saturday. Ramos is an ideal fantasy play for matchday 16.

Ramos assisted on Anis Ben-Hatira's 13th minute goal, scored from the spot in the 53rd minute and then netted the winner in open play in the 84th minute of Saturday's 3-2 win over TSG Hoffenheim.

Ramos has been very productive as of late, scoring four goals and recording two assists in his last four Bundesliga matches. With six goals and three assists on the year, he'll look to extend his point totals against Bayer Leverkusen on November 23 after the international break.
