Osman led Everton with five shots in the 2-0 loss to Sunderland Saturday.

It's been a tough season for Osman as he only has one goal and two assists in 20 matches. He's been in and out of the lineup with injury as well as inconsistent play. It will be interesting to see if Osman stays with Everton during the upcoming Summer transfer window. Everton and Osman take on West Ham next Saturday in their next match.

Manager Roberto Martinez said Tuesday that Osman's groin injury, which he suffered last weekend against Swansea City, is not considered serious, and he has a chance to face Burnley on Saturday.

Osman hasn't been a big fantasy contributor this season, but he helps the Toffees move the ball up the pitch, which helps players like Romelu Lukaku and Steven Naismith. He'll face a late fitness test before the weekend fixtures, though not too many fantasy teams should be affected.

Osman was forced off in the first half against Swansea City because of a groin injury, according to the Liverpool Echo.

Osman has been an important piece for the Toffees recently, though his replacement, Steven Pienaar, helped set up Everton's first goal.

Osman grabbed an assist off a Seamus Coleman goal in the 2-1 win over QPR Sunday.

This now gives Osman two assists and a single goal on the season and he's been lost in fantasy relevance due to Everton's defensive struggles. Osman is a very reliable player, but not a fantasy option at this point of his career. Look for Osman to continue to start in Everton's next match on April 4th against Southampton.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Osman recorded an assist in the 3-2 loss to Crystal Palace Sunday.

Osman is a very reliable source of assists from the defensive position and he got his first of the season Sunday. The defense has been suspect from Everton, so it remains to be seen if they'll continue attacking so heavy out of the back.

Osman suffered a laceration near his eye after getting kicked in the face during Sunday's win over Arsenal, PA Sport reports.

Osman had to come off after just 10 minutes due to the injury. He headed straight for the dressing room and was replaced by Ross Barkley, who is a more upside fantasy play anyway.
