The most recent Serie A fantasy soccer news from RotoWire.
Fantasy AnalysisDe Sanctis' injury isn't considered serious, but with a tough Serie A match against Juventus at the weekend, it's possible manager Rudi Garcia rests him in favor of Skorupski, who has not made a single appearance yet this season.
Fantasy AnalysisDe Sanctis is an elite goalkeeper in Serie A thanks to an excellent back line, but they'll be facing a very tough Manchester City attack Tuesday. If De Sanctis is unable to play, Lukasz Skorupski could get the start in his place.
Fantasy AnalysisDjordjevic scored nine goals in 27 appearances for Nantes last season in Ligue 1 and hadn't scored yet in four matches this season for Lazio, so the offensive output was quite surprising.
Fantasy AnalysisHiguain has yet to find the back of the net through five matches, but he has assisted on two. It's certainly not the start fantasy owners were looking for, but he's still active enough in the attack and should break through soon.
Fantasy AnalysisCallejon now has a goal in back-to-back matches and three in five league matches this season, putting him one behind league-leaders Carlos Tevez of Juventus and Pablo Osvaldo of Inter.
Fantasy AnalysisTevez was an absolute menace Saturday, taking seven shots in 85 minutes, with five landing on goal. He co-leads Serie A in scoring with his four goals, tying him with Inter's Pablo Osvaldo.
Fantasy AnalysisPirlo has been fully training of late, though he will likely not be quite ready to face Atletico Madrid in the Champions League on Wednesday. Sunday's match is a big one, as both sides sit at 15 points through five league matches.
Fantasy AnalysisThe Roma defense continues to be outstanding and De Sanctis has now posted clean sheets in four of five Serie A matches this season. Unfortunately, he faces two very tough tests this week, as Roma will face Manchester City in the Champions League on Tuesday and then travel to play Juventus on Sunday in a return to Serie A play.
Fantasy AnalysisIt was definitely a goal to remember, and Destro now has two goals in his last two starts for Roma, who face Manchester City in the Champions League on Tuesday and then Juventus in Serie A play on Sunday.
Fantasy AnalysisWhile he started the season off relatively slowly, Vidal was a beast Wednesday, bagging his first brace since Jan. 18 against Sampdoria last season. Vidal isn't a huge scorer, but has reached double-digit goals in back-to-back seasons, keeping him popular in most fantasy leagues.
