October 9, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Rakitic has withdrawn from Croatia's World Cup qualifiers with an achilles issue, Marca reports.

Rakitic has been suffering from tendinitis in the Achilles tendon and has been playing through it for some time now. The complication of the ailment however could also put his La Liga availability next weekend in doubt.

September 21, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Rakitic won two tackles and scored a goal on three shot attempts in Wednesday's 1-1 draw with Atletico Madrid.

Rakitic managed to account for all of his side's offense versus the formidable Atletico back line, heading home an Andreas Iniesta cross. Typically a distributor, Rakitic already has two goals in six matches and could rival last season's total of nine goals in all competitions. A fixture with Sporting Gijon is coming up on Saturday.

August 29, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Rakitic scored the only goal of Sunday's 1-0 win at Bilbao. Rakitic headed the ball in, in the 21st minute, also finishing with four corners taken.

Rakitic doesn't have as much value as the attacking line for Barcelona, but he'll find a goal and assist here and there. Consider that he didn't score or assist in last weekend's 6-2 win.

July 2, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Rakitic started all four games for Croatia at Euro 2016, tallying one goal on eight shots (two on target), 20 crosses, seven dribbles and seven fouls. He takes his international record to 12 goals in 80 caps. Croatia lost 1-0 in over time to Portugal and were knocked out of the tournament at the round of 16.

Rakitic had another excellent campaign with Barca last season, though, with a significantly increased amount of playing time. The 28-year-old held a solid fantasy upside consistently managing to record seven goals and two assists in 36 La Liga appearances (30 starts).

June 17, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Rakitic bagged a goal on five shots (two on target) and added seven crosses and four dribbles in Friday's dramatic stoppage-time 2-2 draw to Czech Republic.

Unlike his first Euro encounter, Rakitic was arguably the best player on the pitch versus the Czechs. He converted a very clever flick over Peter Cech into the second goal for his team in what was supposed to be the exclamation point of the game. Besides his top-level field play he takes on some of the corners and free kicks which additionally rises his fantasy value.

March 21, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Rakitic won five tackles, secured a pair of interceptions, scored the opening goal and attempted four shots during a Man of the Match performance versus Sevilla on Sunday.

The midfielder was on hand to put away a rebound from a free kick in the 20th minute, and his work on the defensive side of the ball helped the league-leaders to control much of the game, though they ultimately coughed up the lead. Rakitic is now up to seven goals in all competitions this season, but Barcelona's reliance on their talented front three minimizes his role in the final third. The next edition of El Clasico versus Real Madrid awaits on Apr. 2.

December 16, 2015

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Rakitic attempted a pair of shots, supplied five crosses and scored his first league goal of the season in Saturday's 2-2 draw with Deportivo.

The Croation has been a fixture in the midfield for Barca this season, but his production has been lacking as the fearsome attacking trio of Lionel Messi, Neymar and Luis Suarez do the heavy lifting. With just three goals and a pair of assists to his name in all competitions, Rakitic is a much better fantasy option in formats that reward action stats. Barcelona is currently in Japan for the Club World Cup, and they will resume La Liga play Dec. 30 against Real Betis.
