Mascherano won three tackles and helped keep a clean sheet during Wednesday's 4-0 victory over Manchester City in the Champions League.

Mascherano made a rare start at fullback, and while he struggled at times to keep up with City's talented wide players, he held his own on the flank. He will likely be forced back into a central role in the near future, as Gerard Pique (ankle) is expected to miss at least three weeks while Jeremy Mathieu will miss the next Champions League match after being sent off Wednesday.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Mascherano signed a new three-year contract that he said would be his last with the club, reports the Daily Mail.

The veteran midfielder has agreed to stay with the club until 2019, but confirmed that would be the end of his time with the Spanish club. He joined the side in 2010 and will be 35 years old upon the contract's conclusion.

Mascherano (hamstring) returned for Barcelona on Sunday as a substitute in the 1-0 win against Athletic.

Mascherano had been sidelined with a hamstring injury, however he made his return to the pitch on Sunday coming in for Denis Suarez in the 70th minute. While he had a limited impact on the match, he was able to get some valuable time with the first team as he makes his full return to match fitness.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Mascherano has been ruled out for the season opener versus Real Betis on Saturday, Marca reports.

Mascherano played the full 90 minutes in the second leg of the Spanish Super Cup tie versus Sevilla. However, he's obviously picked up a knock from the game that will rule him out for about a week. With the international break coming in two weeks he may well be spared for the fixture on 28 Aug also. In his absence Gerard Pique and Samuel Umtiti will probably anchor Barca's defense.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Barcelona have blocked a potential Mascherano move to Juventus, according to Sky Sports.

Reportedly, Mascherano had agreed personal terms with Juventus, though, Barca wouldn't allow the transfer to go through as he is contracted with them for another two years and they value him highly. The holding midfielder posted team-high 90.5% pass success rate last season. With that being said, though, he doesn't boast the same fantasy value as he had no goals or assist and nine yellow cards in 32 La Liga appearances (31 starts).

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Mascherano started Saturday's La Liga match against Athletic Bilbao, but came off at halftime in favor of Gerard Pique.

Mascherano was returning from a one-match ban for picking up a red card, and despite Barcelona posting clean sheets in all three of its La Liga games this season, Mascherano has yet to play long enough in the two matches he's started to be credited with a shutout.

August 30, 2014

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Mascherano is ineligible to play Sunday against Villarreal after picking up a red card last Sunday against Elche.

Mascherano's fantasy value is fully dependent on clean sheets, and Sunday's matchup isn't the easiest, so he isn't likely losing a ton of value with the time off.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Mascherano participated in light training with a number of Barcelona teammates Tuesday after taking time off following the World Cup.

A full squad training session will come later this week, as the fit players will have a friendly against Napoli on Wednesday. Mascherano has plenty of time to regain his fitness and he should be ready for the Aug. 24 La Liga opener against Elche.
