The most recent Serie A fantasy soccer news from RotoWire.

Faouzi Ghoulam    D    Napoli
Ghoulam won two tackles, made two interceptions, put in 10 crosses and provided an assist in Wednesday's 4-2 win over Benfica.

Fantasy Analysis

Ghoulam was an attacking menace in the victory, whipping in a corner-kick that Marek Hamsik put home to open the scoring. Ghoulam has evolved into one of the most attack-minded fullbacks in Europe, and he already has three assists to his name through eight matches in all competitions. Napoli wall take on Atalanta on Sunday.
Marek Hamsik    M    Napoli
Hamsik put in two crosses and scored a goal on two shots during Wednesday's 4-2 win over Benfica.

Fantasy Analysis

Hamsik headed in a corner-kick at the near post to give his side the lead at the half, before they broke it open shortly after. The goal put Hamsik into second place all time among Napoli scorers, behind only Diego Maradona. He has three goals and an assist in his last six matches and will look to find the net for the third straight match Sunday versus Atalanta.
Arkadiusz Milik    F    Napoli
Milik scored a goal on four shot attempts and added an assist during Wednesday's 4-2 win over Benfica.

Fantasy Analysis

Milik buried a penalty and nudged a ball into the path of Dries Mertens to take a four-goal lead before the opposition recovered a pair of their own. Milik has been prolific in bunches this season, as the eight goals he has factored into this season have come form just four of his eight appearances. He will look to continue his fine form Sunday versus Atalanta.
Dries Mertens    F/M    Napoli
Mertens won three interceptions, put in three crosses and scored two goals during Wednesday's 4-2 win over Benfica.

Fantasy Analysis

Mertens scored a crafty free-kick and put home a loose ball from close range to help his side take a four-goal lead after 58 minutes. The goals were his first since a brace in the first match of the season, and he will look to build off of this performance Sunday versus Atalanta.
Pepe Reina    G    Napoli
Reina made just one save and allowed two goals during Wednesday's 4-2 win over Benfica.

Fantasy Analysis

Napoli went up 4-0 and the defense began to lapse, giving the ball up in their own end on the first goal and allowing Eduardo Salvio to bring the ball down in the box on the second goal. Reina had not allowed multiple goals in five September matches heading into the fixture and will look to get back on track Sunday versus Atalanta.
Giorgio Chiellini    D    Juventus
Chiellini and the Juve back line held Dinamo Zagreb scoreless in Tuesday's 4-0 Champions League win. He finished with one shot and two successful tackles.

Fantasy Analysis

It was another dominant performance by Juventus, who have three straight clean sheets. They'll try and make it a fourth against Empoli this weekend, a club that has just two goals in six league matches.
Leonardo Bonucci    D    Juventus
Bonucci and the Juve back line held Dinamo Zagreb scoreless in Tuesday's 4-0 Champions League win. He wasn't asked to do much in the match with Juve dominating the entire way.

Fantasy Analysis

Juventus and Bonucci will aim for their fourth straight clean sheet in this weekend's match at Empoli, a club that has just two goals in six league matches this season.
Andrea Barzagli    D    Juventus
Barzagli and the Juve back line held Dinamo Zagreb scoreless in Tuesday's 4-0 Champions League win. He finished with two aerials won and four successful tackles and was subbed out in the 68th minute.

Fantasy Analysis

At 35 years old, Barzagli was rested in the second half with the assumption that he'll play a full 90 at Empoli over the weekend with only three central backs available for Juve at the moment.
Miralem Pjanic    M    Juventus
Pjanic assisted and scored in Tuesday's 4-0 win at Dinamo Zagreb, but had to come off after the break due to a knock.

Fantasy Analysis

Pjanic is always a threat to be around the ball and goal, but injuries are becoming a part of his game. If he can't go at Empoli this weekend, Juan Cuadrado could draw the start.
Dani Alves    D    Juventus
Alves scored and assisted in Tuesday's 4-0 win at Dinamo Zagreb. He finished with two shots, one aerial won and four successful tackles to go with a clean sheet.

Fantasy Analysis

Alves was a nuisance for Zagreb all match and that's been the case for most of the season with Juve. Even at 33 years old, Alves still holds a little fantasy value, especially if he's listed as a defender.
