Ozil will not play Saturday against Newcastle because of a minor knee injury.

The news of Ozil's injury wasn't disclosed until after lineups were announced, but at least Arsenal are playing in the first game of the weekend for fantasy manager to make adjustments. Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain will move into the starting lineup.

Ozil recorded his first assist of the season on Sunday, as Arsenal defeated Crystal Palace 2-1.

Ozil set up teammate Olivier Giroud by fizzing a left-sided cross into the penalty area, where the Frenchman converted a stellar volley. Following a lackluster Week 1 display, Ozil was rather influential in the Gunners' attack Sunday, leading the team with five goalscoring chances created.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Ozil had a promising second season for Arsenal, although he scored just four goals and assisted on only five.

Although he failed to match his debut season total of six goals and 11 assists, the German was actually much more influential this year and looked comfortable and confident in his role. Ozil has stated that he is very happy at the club, and he will be a big part of their plans moving forward.

Ozil had three key passes, eight crosses and scored a goal in the 40th minute of Arsenal's 4-1 win over Liverpool on Saturday.

Ozil was sloppy at points early in the game, but he turned it all around after his free-kick goal that put Arsenal up 2-0. While he has been playing well of late, the goal was his first since netting against Spurs on Feb. 7, and he's gone five straight games without an assist.

Ozil will not play Saturday against Newcastle due to an illness.

Santi Cazorla will slot into Ozil's spot, with Danny Welbeck out on the wing.

Ozil assisted on both Arsenal goals in Sunday's 2-0 victory over Everton.

It wasn't Ozil's sharpest effort, though he made smart, accurate deliveries on both scores. The Gunners will take it, a notable step up in form after the ugly midweek loss to Monaco in the Champions League.

Ozil picked up an assist in Tuesday's 2-1 victory over Leicester City.

Ozil's snappy corner was converted into Laurent Koscielny's seal-breaking tally, and a rebound of Ozil's turned into Theo Walcott's goal later in the half. Ozil can be a maddening player at times, but he's been engaged, and terrific, over the last few weeks (3-1-4 in four matches).

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Ozil supplied Arsenal's only goal in Saturday's loss at Tottenham.

Ozil has now scored in all three matches he's played since returning from a lengthy knee injury absence. The German found himself in the right spot at the right time to finish his most recent goal, which came from a close range one-on-one situation after teammate Olivier Giroud misfired a shot attempt into Ozil's path Saturday. Nonetheless, for a supreme set-up man, Ozil finding the back of the net lately should boost his confidence in the final third heading into Arsenal's upcoming matches.
