Lukasz Skorupski    G    Roma
Skorupski could start Roma's Champions League match against Manchester City on Tuesday if Morgan de Sanctis is unable to play due to a groin strain he picked up last weekend against Hellas Verona, Goal.com reports.

Fantasy Analysis

De 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.
Morgan De Sanctis    G    Roma
De Sanctis will face a late fitness test for Roma's Champions League match against Manchester City on Tuesday due to a groin strain he suffered last weekend against Verona.

Fantasy Analysis

De 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.
Filip Djordjevic    F    Lazio
Djordjevic scored in the 45th, 75th and 83rd minutes of Lazio's 4-0 Serie A win over Palermo on Monday.

Fantasy Analysis

Djordjevic 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.
Gonzalo Higuain    F    Napoli
Higuain assisted on Jose Maria Callejon's 28th minute goal during Napoli's 1-0 win over Sassuolo on Sunday.

Fantasy Analysis

Higuain 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.
Jose Maria Callejon    F    Napoli
Callejon netted the game-winner in the 28th minute of Napoli's 1-0 win over Sassuolo on Sunday.

Fantasy Analysis

Callejon 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.
Carlos Tevez    F    Juventus
Tevez scored twice during Juventus' 3-0 win over Atalanta on Saturday, giving him six goals in his last four games in all competitions, including four in Serie A play.

Fantasy Analysis

Tevez 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.
Andrea Pirlo    M    Juventus
Pirlo, who has yet to play this season due to a hip injury picked up during the preseason, could make his debut Sunday against Roma, ESPN FC reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Pirlo 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.
Morgan De Sanctis    G    Roma
De Sanctis made three saves and picked up an assist during Roma's 2-0 win over Verona on Saturday.

Fantasy Analysis

The 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.
Mattia Destro    F    Roma
Destro scored from nearly the middle of the pitch when he found Verona goalkeeper Pierluigi Gollini off his line in Roma's 2-0 win Saturday.

Fantasy Analysis

It 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.
Arturo Vidal    M    Juventus
Vidal scored two goals during Juventus' 3-0 Serie A Win over Cesena on Wednesday.

Fantasy Analysis

While 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.
