Rodriguez took three shots, with one on target, en route to a 1-0 win over USA in Copa America Centenario third-place game which gives the Colombians the bronze medals. He finished the tournament with two goals on 19 shots (six on target), one assist and a yellow card on seven fouls in six appearances (five starts) taking his international record to 16 goals in 47 caps.

James laid the foundation of the winner with a beautiful pass to find Santiago Arias' run in the box. The former had plenty of opportunities to turn this tournament into a scoring feast, though, he played under pressure to perform well and prove his worth after a trying campaign with Real Madrid. The 24-year-old creative midfielder couldn't find regular playing time with his club last season, though, he showcased his prolific skills whenever given opportunity finishing the season with seven goals, eight assists and an average of 1.5 shots per game in 26 La Liga appearances (17 starts).

June 8, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

James hammered one home and assisted for the other goal in Tuesday's Copa America 2-1 win over Paraguay.

James' injury didn't slow him down even a bit. He was the engine behind Los Cafeteros' quarterfinal berth with a great cross, for Carlos Bacca's header for the opener, and a fantastic strike to double Columbia's lead himself. If he doesn't get rested in Columbia's final group stage game against Costa Rica on Saturday, he can be expected to bring more fantasy production.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

James (shoulder) is starting Tuesday against Paraguay.

James left last Friday's game against the United States after dislocating his shoulder, but he has apparently recovered enough in the last few days to captain his side in their second Copa America match of the year.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

James is unlikely to play Wednesday against Paraguay because of the shoulder injury he suffered Friday against the United States, Marca reports.

James appeared to suffer a dislocated shoulder in the match, and while a serious injury has been ruled out, it appears he won't be able to recover in time for Colombia's second group stage match. Guillermo Celis came on for James in Friday's match and could start in his place.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

James came off in the 73rd minute of Friday's Copa America match against the United States with a suspected left shoulder injury, according to the Fox Sports 1 broadcast.

James appeared to dislocate his shoulder after falling on a phantom tackle by Michael Bradley, and while was able to briefly re-enter the game, the Colombian star was removed shortly after. An absence for James would be a major blow to the Colombia attack, though they still have plenty of fire power to at least get out of the group stage.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Rodriguez scored eight goals and added eight assists in 31 appearances in all competitions this season.

The midfielder suffered a foot injury and missed five weeks early in the season, but even after he came back, he failed to solidify himself in the first XI and started just 20 total matches. Rodriguez is clearly not a large player in the plans of manager Zinedine Zidane, as he started just two of the season's final seven matches and didn't see a single minute in the Champions League final. He is likely to move on this summer and should still command a hefty fee.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

James put in seven crosses, provided an assist from four key passes and scored a goal on three shots during Saturday's 5-1 win over Getafe.

James set up Karim Benzema for the opening goal, and he bagged the fourth by tucking home a Lucas Vazquez pass in the second half. James now has three goals and an assist in his last three starts, and he could be in for an expended role after Gareth Bale left the match with an injury. Real Madrid will next play Wednesday versus Villarreal.

April 11, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Rodriguez put in nine crosses, played three key passes and scored a goal on three shots during Saturday's 4-0 win over Eibar.

Rodriguez was extremely involved as a facilitator Saturday, but his greatest highlight came when he buried a freekick from the top of the box to open the scoring in the fourth minute. Saturday represented one of the best all-around efforts of the season for Rodriguez, and he will look to carry this momentum into Tuesday's monumental Champions League match versus Wolfsburg.
