Rikitic scored in the 43rd minute of Barcelona's 6-0 rout of Granada on Saturday.

Rikitic, who scored 12 times in 34 appearances for Sevilla last season, has now found the back of the net twice in the last three games. He isn't taking a lot of shots (six in six games), but there's enough talent around him that he should fall into a number of goals and assists this season.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Rakitic will sign a five-year contract with FC Barcelona after transferring from Sevilla FC, the club's official web site reports.

Rakitic is coming off an excellent season with Sevilla, where he was one of five players in La Liga to record double-digit goals and assists (Carlos Vela, Gareth Bale, Lionel Messi, Alexis Sanchez). He joins a very deep Barcelona squad, but one that has already lost Cesc Fabregas and could see Alexis Sanchez move on.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Rakitic is one of only five players in La Liga to reach double-digit goals (12) and assists (10) this season.

Rakitic has been an extremely versatile fantasy performer this season, and his double-digit feat is matched only by Gareth Bale, Alexis Sanchez, Lionel Messi and Carlos Vela.
