RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Turan came on in the 58th minute and scored a goal on two shots in Wednesday's 2-1 Champions League group stage win against Borussia Monchengladbach.

Turan made his first Champions League group stage appearance for Barcelona, coming on for Ivan Rakitic just before the hour mark. He now has three goals and three assists across all competitions this season and is making a strong case to be in the starting XI every week. Barcelona face Celta Vigo this Sunday.

Turan scored a goal and tallied an assist in Saturday's 5-0 victory over Sporting Gijon.

While the Turkish winger is lost in the shuffle with how much attacking talent Barcelona has, he showed Saturday how instrumental he can be to the run of play. In six La Liga appearances (four starts) has has two goals and three assists and four goals and four assists in eight matches across all comps. With Lionel Messi on the sidelines with an injury and two matches this week, look for Turan to consistently find a home in the starting XI, having settled in nicely on the right wing.

Turan assisted Ivan Rakitic for the only goal in Barcelona's 1-0 win at Bilbao on Sunday. Turan finished with one goal, one aerial won and one successful tackle.

Bilbao did well to keep Barce's attack in check for the most part with Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez getting limited looks in front of net. Turan has played well in the first two matches, but will soon give up his spot to Neymar once he's ready.

Turan netted the opening goal and added an assist for Barcelona in their season opener.

It's been quite a start to the season for Turan who followed up an outstanding performance in the Spanish Super Cup with a goal six minutes into the match against Real Betis. He has played very well with Barcelona's other attacking players, and was heavily involved with the buildup of attacking play. Playing alongside the likes of Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez, and Neymar the opportunities to score will be abundant and so far Turan has taken advantage of them.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Turan started all three matches for Turkey in Euro 2016 but failed to make an impression and tallied merely four shots off target and two dribbles. He takes his international tally to 94 caps and 17 goals. Turkey finished third in Group D with three points but were still eliminated as one of the two weakest third-seeded teams.

Turan couldn't play until January due to Barca's transfer ban and then had trouble adjusting and finding regular starting spot in the loaded Catalans' squad. The 29-year-old attacking midfielder didn't offer much fantasy value recording two goals, three assists and five yellow cards in 18 La Liga appearances (nine starts).

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Turan is suspended for Tuesday's Champions League match against Arsenal, which dates back to when he was with Atletico Madrid.

With Turan ineligible for Barcelona until January, he was unable to serve his suspension during the group stage. As a result, Ivan Rakitic, Sergio Busquets and Andres Iniesta will likely start behind Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez and Neymar.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Barcelona announced Monday that they have signed Turan from Atletico Madrid.

Barcelona are in the middle of management elections, so they actually have an option to sell Turan back to Atletico Madrid if any new officers don't want him. That being said, it seems likely that he'll join the club, though he won't be eligible to play until January because of Barcelona's transfer ban.
