FRENKIE DE JONG
#21 - MIDFIELDER - BARCELONA
De Jong completed his one-match suspension during Sunday's 2-1 loss to Celta Vigo.
De Jong had started five straight matches as an attacking-midfielder before missing the match that cost his club a chance at the league title. He'll look to return to the lineup for the season finale at Eibar.

Picks up fifth yellow card
De Jong created four chances and picked up his fifth yellow card of the season during Tuesday's 3-3 draw with Levante. As a result of the booking, he'll be suspended for Sunday's m...
De Jong has started five straight matches as the central attacking-midfielder but someone else will have to fill the gap alongside Pedri. Two potential options are Riqui Puig and Ilaix Moriba, as Miralem Pjanic hasn't started a game nearly three months.

Messi strikes twice in 2nd half to keep Barcelona near top
Lionel Messi has helped to keep Barcelona near the top of the Spanish league with two second-half goals in a 3-2 win over Valencia
Moves up pitch in win
De Jong took three shots (one on goal) and created three chances during Sunday's 2-1 win over Villarreal.
De Jong had spent most of March as a center-back, but the return to fitness of Gerard Pique has allowed the Dutchman to move back up the field. While the attack is still heavily weighted towards whatever Lionel Messi can do, de Jong could have marginally better value in forward role. Up next is a visit from Granada, which have conceded the most goals in the league.

Serving as center-back
De Jong has spent the last three matches starting at center-back and was unable to record a clean sheet.
De Jong has been used in a variety of positions throughout the season, though most of the time he plays in the midfield. However, with two wins and a draw by a scoring margin of 11-3, de Jong may stay in a defensive role for a little longer, no matter how good or bad it may be for his value.
Logs four interceptions versus PSG
De Jong had four interceptions, one dribble, 98 passes completed and a yellow card in Wednesday's 1-1 draw to PSG.
De Jong was solid here but yet again has offered very little fantasy relevant numbers. He's only notched one assist with no goals over his past nine matches (eight starts) and has also had very few offensive numbers in peripheral stats too over that period. With three goals and five assists on the season though the upside is clearly there and with the Catalans now only playing domestically he may be given a bit more freedom to go forward against inferior teams.

Creates two chances in win
De Jong created two chances during Saturday's 2-0 win over Sevilla.
De Jong set up one goal from five chances created over his past two matches in what is hopefully the beginning of a bigger offensive role for the Dutchman. Still, most of the team revolves around feeding Lionel Messi to do the rest of the work, so it'll take more time for de Jong to become properly valuable for fantasy. There are three matches to play over the next week in three different competitions, so de Jong will either be very busy or rotated in one of the fixtures to keep up his fitness.

Sets up goal against Elche
De Jong delivered an assist in Wednesday's win over Elche. He finished with three chances created, one tackle and one interception.
De Jong showed some of the skill set that dazzled the Eredivisie in his Ajax days when he recovered a ball in midfield, sneaked into the box and set up Lionel Messi's strike from close range. It was his third assist since the beginning of January.
Quiet in loss to PSG
De Jong had one chance created, three fouls drawn and two dispossessions in Tuesday's 4-1 loss to PSG.
De Jong earned Barca's penalty early in the match and while his game started very well he was extremely quiet the rest of the way turning in overall a very fogettable performance. He's been quiet over his past four appearances but with two goals and two assists in the four matches before that his upside remains fairly high.
Mbappé's hat trick gives PSG 4-1 win over Barcelona in CL
Kylian Mbappé has scored a hat trick as Paris Saint-Germain came from behind to rout Barcelona 4-1 in the first leg of the round of 16 of the Champions League
Starts as defender in win
De Jong played in 72 minutes of Saturday's 5-1 win over Deportivo Alaves.
De Jong started at center-back in a tactical decision but moved back into midfield at halftime when Samuel Umtiti subbed into the match. He's scored three goals and provided three assists this season, but does so from a limited amount of forays into the attack. This keeps his fantasy potential at a lower spot as a defensive midfielder heading into the next match against Paris Saint-Germain.
