El Shaarawy set up a goal in AC Milan's 3-1 victory over Hellas Verona on Sunday.

Fantasy Analysis

El Shaarawy has only been handed three starts this season, but with an assist in two of those outings, the 21-year-old is making the most of his limited opportunities. After missing virtually all of last season due to a foot injury, El Shaarawy, who fabulously scored 16 goals during the 2012-13 league campaign, returning to form represents an exciting development for AC Milan.
Antonio Candreva    M    Lazio

Adem Ljajic    M    Roma
Ljajic scored his second goal of this season in Saturday's win over Chievo.

Fantasy Analysis

Ljajic has found the scoresheet in two of his past three appearances for Roma; however, with fellow strikers Alessandro Florenzi, Gervinho and Mattia Destro also vying for playing time on the wing, his involvement is somewhat difficult to project on a week-to-week basis.
Morgan De Sanctis    G    Roma
De Sanctis returned from a groin injury to produce three saves en route to a clean sheet Saturday versus Chievo.

Fantasy Analysis

De Sanctis missed Roma's past two matches across all competitions due to a groin ailment, but passed fit for Saturday's 3-0 victory over Italian counterparts Chievo.

Fantasy Analysis

Destro has been stellar to begin this season, as the 23-year-old striker now boasts three goals in four appearances (two starts) thus far. With five shot attempts (four on goal), Destro led Roma in the category, which should inspire manager Rudi Garcia to start him on a more regular basis moving forward.

Including his most recent Champions League appearance, Totti has found the net in three straight games across all competitions, a streak he'll aim to continue in the midweek versus mighty Bayern Munich, before a top-heavy league tie against Sampdoria on Saturday.
