Pirlo curled home the beautiful free-kick that ultimately decided the game in Saturday's 3-2 win over the Union.

Pirlo didn't carry as heavy a load as he normally does, with Frank Lampard making his first start of the season, but he still stepped up to bury one of his trademark set-pieces in the 50th minute. The goal was Pirlo's first of the season, and the wealth of attacking options now at the club's disposal should see him primarily operate as a distributor moving forward. A fixture with Seattle is up next on the docket.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Pirlo had a pair of assists and two shots in 90 minutes playing time Sunday as NYCFC played Orlando City to a 2-2 draw at home.

Well-timed passes to R.J. Allen and David Villa in the 42nd and 66th minute of Sunday's fixture left Pirlo recording his first multi-assist performance of 2016 in the draw with Orlando City. Though A first-ever MLS goal continues to elude the veteran midfielder, Pirlo now finds himself tied with Khiry Shelton and Thomas McNamara as the club's leader in assists (4).

Pirlo won five tackles, played four key passes and garnered one assist in Sunday's 2-1 win over Portland.

The 36-year-old played his typical role as a midfield facilitator for New York, and his largest contribution came when he teed up Thomas McNamara's winning strike in the 65th minute. Pirlo has just two assists to his name through 10 matches, making him a middling fantasy play heading into Wednesday's matchup with Toronto FC.

Pirlo recorded his first MLS assist on David Villa's 80th-minute goal during NYC FC's 3-1 win over D.C. United on Thursday.

Pirlo set up Villa perfectly on a pass that many would argue only he could make, though it should be noted a previous giveaway directly led to D.C.'s lone goal. Pirlo's spot in the starting XI is locked in, but he's not a big goal scorer, so high fantasy expectations should be put in check.

Pirlo was quiet in his first start for NYC FC, taking one shot and drawing two fouls in a loss to Montreal.

Pirlo showed his incredible free kick ability and his one shot was just off the mark, but he's a relatively limited fantasy option for the most part, as he doesn't take a high number of shots and is very dependent on other players to finish off his passes.

Pirlo is in the starting lineup Saturday against Montreal.

Pirlo made his NYC FC debut last weekend against Orlando City, and it was only a matter of time before he jump right into the lineup. He's a master of free kicks, but he doesn't doesn't score a ton and is a bit dependent on assists to make a big fantasy impact.

Pirlo came on for Mehdi Ballouchy in the 57th minute of NYC FC's 5-3 win over Orlando City on Sunday, finishing with 35 passes and a yellow card.

Pirlo appeared to pick up a secondary assist on David Villa's 67th minute goal, but it was later determined not to be the case. He just joined the club last Tuesday, so it's unclear how long it will take for him to get his fitness level high enough to start, but it's clear that once he's healthy enough, he'll be locked into the starting lineup.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Pirlo is available off the bench Sunday against Orlando City.

Pirlo joined up with the squad earlier this week and trained for the first time Tuesday, so it's not surprising that he's only on the bench Sunday. He's fully expected to make an appearance at some point, though that's tough to bank on for fantasy purposes. His next shot at a start will come next Saturday against Montreal.
