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.

Osman was unable to score, but got off five shots in the 0-1 loss to Spurs on Sunday.

With Romelu Lukaku (ankle) out and Ross Barkley not starting, Osman was asked to be the goal scorer Sunday. Consider this a one time deal and once the full team is healthy, there likely won't be as many chances for Osman up front.

Osman had a big game Saturday, contributing a goal and an assist in an easy 4-1 win over Fulham.

Osman was everywhere Saturday and he filled up the stat sheet. He tallied a goal, an assist, and even got off five shots during the game. Ironically, he did this once earlier this year against Aston Villa, but has not recorded a goal or an assist besides those two matches. Osman is a bit lost in the shuffle in the Everton squad and would be hard to trust in fantasy terms.

Osman had a very productive game as a substitute Saturday, picking up a goal and an assist in Everton's 2-0 victory over Aston Villa. He helped start the scoring by assisting on Romelu Lukaku's goal in the 68th minute and then added a goal of his own from the top of the 16-yard box to seal the match in the 81st minute.

This was the first match all season that did not feature Osman in the Starting XI. However, the midfielder now has a goal and two assists in Everton's last two matches, as he begins to contribute more to the Everton attack.

Osman picked up an assist Saturday during Everton's 2-1 victory over Hull City.

Osman has been in the Starting XI for each of Everton's first eight games this season, but the assist was his first appearance on the score sheet. He does not provide enough fantasy value to warrant much consideration.

Everton rolled along to a 2-1 win over Wigan Wednesday on the strength of Osman's third goal of the season.

Osman started things off in the 52nd minute with his third goal of the season for an Everton side that has only lost once since early September.
