Mohamed Salah    M    Fiorentina
Salah supplied the deciding goal in Fiorentina's 1-0 win over Inter Milan on Sunday.

Fantasy Analysis

Salah has fared wonderfully since arriving in Florence, as the former Chelsea man has now tallied four goals and an assist in six appearances for his new club. The Egyptian's latest contribution extended his scoring streak to three matches across all competitions, making the 22-year-old a player to watch as the Serie A season enters its final months.
Seydou Keita    M    Roma
Keita scored in the 78th minute of Roma's draw versus Juventus on Monday.

Fantasy Analysis

Keita popped up with a rare goal toward the end of Monday's match, which at least saved Roma one point in the standings. However, at 35 years old, Keita has long occupied more of a holding midfield role, which limits his fantasy potential.
Carlos Tevez    F    Juventus
Tevez was dominant in the 1-1 draw with Roma on Monday, firing off four shots and scoring on a beautiful 64th minute free kick.

Fantasy Analysis

The Argentine striker continues to lead Serie A in scoring and has been in good form seemingly all season. He will look to add to his league-leading totals next Monday versus Sassuolo.
Mario Gomez    F    Fiorentina
Gomez, who scored during Fiorentina's victory over Tottenham in the Europa League on Thursday, was rested for Sunday's match against Inter Milan, Bild reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Gomez has dealt with a serious of injuries over the past few years, so he doesn't get nearly as much consistent playing time as he used to. While he's a decent fantasy option when he's on the field, he's just too inconsistent to rely upon in nearly all formats.
Rodrigo Palacio    F    Inter Milan
Palacio came on in the 73rd minute and finishing with two shots on goal during Inter's 1-0 loss to Fiorentina on Sunday.

Fantasy Analysis

Palacio has three goals in 22 Serie A appearances this season, though two of them have come after the winter break. He's taken multiple shots in each of his last three appearances, but his playing time is a bit sketchy now, with his showing off the bench Sunday being preceded by an unused substitute tag last weekend against Cagliari.
Gonzalo Higuain    F    Napoli
Higuain took three shots, with one on goal, but failed to score in Napoli's 1-0 loss to Torino on Sunday.

Fantasy Analysis

Higuain has now gone four consecutive Serie A matches without a goal, with his last one coming Jan. 26 against Genoa when he bagged a brace. Nevertheless, he still boasts 12 goals this season, a mark bested only by Inter's Mauro Icardi and Juve's Carlos Tevez.
Marek Hamsik    M    Napoli
Hamsik took only one shot, which was not on goal, failing to extend his scoring streak to two during Sunday's 1-0 loss to Torino.

Fantasy Analysis

Hamsik netted against Sassuolo last Sunday for his third goal in 23 appearances this season, though his previous Serie A score came all the way back on Oct. 26 when he had a brace against Verona. He's just not a big scorer and doesn't get a ton of assists -- five this season, keeping him a relatively weak fantasy option in most formats.
Luca Toni    F    Verona
The veteran striker scored his 10th of the season as Verona surprised host Cagliari in a 2-1 win Sunday.

Fantasy Analysis

Toni isn't always consistent, but still is capable of having big games.
Stefano Okaka Chuka    F    Sampdoria
Okaka had a goal and an assist playing alongside Luis Muriel and Samuel Eto'o in a three-man attack as Sampdoria won 2-1 in Bergamo over Atalanta.

Fantasy Analysis

This is good news for Okaka, who had problems with his coach and club in January.
Miroslav Klose    F    Lazio
The veteran came off the bench and had a goal and an assist in 24 minutes of work in Lazio's 3-0 win over Sassuolo.

Fantasy Analysis

Klose is one of the smartest players to have ever played the game.
