Add: Lionel Messi (Barcelona)
This is a no-brainer. Messi would have finished with 892.9 La Liga fantasy points last season, nearly 300 more than any other player! And all he's done through the first three weeks of this season is post four goals, two assists and 101.8 fantasy points -- he's more than 30 points ahead of Karim Benzema in second place.
Avoid: Diego Costa (Atletico Madrid)
His team is off to a very disappointing start, winning just one of their first three games, including a 2-0 loss to Celta Vigo just prior to the international break. They've only scored two goals, and Costa didn't score either of them. He also withdrew from the Spain squad last week for personal reasons.
Tier 2 Forward
Add: Iago Aspas (Celta Vigo)
Aspas has scored only one goal so far this season, but it came last time out in the win over Atletico. More importantly, Aspas scored 22 goals last season -- only Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo and Luis Suarez scored more in La Liga -- and he also would have finished fourth among all outfield players in fantasy points. Aspas isn't just a goal-scorer, either -- he finished fifth in chances created last season with 69, and already has seven of them this year.
Avoid: Willian Jose (Real Sociedad)
He's off to a good start with two goals in three games, but injured himself while converting a penalty kick in a 2-1 loss to Eibar in their most recent game, and had to leave early in the first half. Plus, his team is up against Barcelona this weekend.
Tier 1 Midfielder
Add: Gareth Bale (Real Madrid)
He already has three goals and an assist in three games, and is third overall in fantasy points (65.6), just behind his teammate Benzema (68.8). With Ronaldo gone to Juventus, and manager Zinedine Zidane resigning after last season, Bale has a big opportunity to be the main man at Real Madrid this season. Zidane only played him in 26 out of 38 league games last year, including only 20 starts. Yet Bale still scored 16 goals, and would have been 14th among outfield players in fantasy points per game.
Avoid: Thomas Lemar (Atletico Madrid)
Atletico paid big money to sign Lemar from Monaco this summer, but he's yet to score a goal or record an assist this season. And manager Diego Simeone didn't even start Lemar in their most recent game, which is a concern.
Tier 2 Midfielder
Add: Maxi Gomez (Celta Vigo)
I'm a little hesitant to double up on Celta attackers, especially when they're playing away from home (at Girona), but this looks like a really good deal. Gomez actually plays as a forward, and has two goals and two assists in the first three games of this season -- including a goal and assist in each of their past two games. He also scored 17 goals last season, seventh-most in the league.
Avoid: Andres Guardado (Real Betis)
Guardado is more of a defensive midfielder, who only scored two goals last season. He did have eight assists, but Betis have only scored one goal in their first three games this season, and face a tough away matchup at Valencia.
