Ozil tallied three shots (two on target), four crosses and five dribbles in Thursday's 2-0 win over West Brom.

The maestro put on another statistical show and his fantasy owners can really feel unfortunate that he couldn't capitalize on that game with a bigger output. Nevertheless, with six goals and 18 assists in 32 Premier League games he remains a top fantasy option.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Ozil attempted two shots, played eight key passes and put in 10 crosses during Sunday's draw with Crystal Palace.

The playmaker sprayed passes all over the field, creating several chances, and he came close to nabbing a goal of his own as he sent a free-kick just wide of the top corner. Ozil has now tied a season-high streak of five games without an assist, and he will look to break that drought Thursday versus West Brom.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Ozil scored a goal on one shot (one on target) in Saturday's 3-3 draw with West Ham.

Whether Ozil was offsides or not is something for the pundits to decide; however, the linkup play between him and Alex Iwobi has been a massive boon to Arsenal's goal scoring numbers. Ozil's more of a creator than a scorer, but this was his sixth goal of the season to go with a league-leading 18 assists.

Ozil (ankle) is starting Saturday's international friendly against England.

Ozil missed some training earlier in the week with the ailment, but it was never considered serious, allowing him to slot into the starting lineup.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Ozil was unable to train with the German national team on Wednesday because of an ankle injury he suffered last Saturday against Everton.

Ozil's issue isn't considered overly serious, though it sounds like he could miss one of Germany's two matches over the international break.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Ozil scored a goal on two shots (one on target), tallied an assist and was issued a yellow card in Sunday's 3-2 defeat to Manchester United.

On a day where Arsenal really struggled, Ozil was typically outstanding offensively. The goal was his fifth in the Premier League while tallying his league-leading 18th assist. While he shirks his defensive responsibilities on a weekly basis, what he provides in the final third is nearly unparalleled from a creativity standpoint.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Ozil tallied an assist in Sunday's 2-1 victory over Leicester City.

Startlingly low on quality for much of the match, Ozil made up for it with a perfectly weighted free kick in the waning moments of injury time that found Danny Welbeck's head to secure three points against the league leaders. Ozil now has 17 assists in 24 Premier League matches, seven more than Riyad Mahrez in second place. With the amount of attacking talent Arsenal can put on the pitch at any given point, Ozil should continue to rake in assists as they push toward the finish line.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Ozil scored a goal on one shot (one on target) in Sunday's 2-0 victory over Bournemouth.

Not usually the goal scorer, Ozil wrong-footed a shot at the doorstep to open the scoring in the 23rd minute. The goal was his fourth of the season, but slightly more troubling is that he hasn't tallied an assist since Dec. 28 (also against Bournemouth). While that would be fine for most, Ozil has been on a tremendous rate of assisting, picking up 16 in Premier League play alone this season. He'll continue to be one of the top midfield fantasy options moving forward.
