Ozil scored eight goals and dished out a career-high 19 assists in all competitions last season. He added a goal and an assist as Germany advanced to the semi-finals of Euro 2016.

The playmaker struggled to find his best form during his first two seasons in England, but he recorded what was arguably the best all-around statistical season of his career and finished six helpers ahead of his nearest rival in league play. Ozil didn't have as great an impact at the international level this summer, but he faced significant attention from opposing sides and struggled a bit as Germany went without a true striker for much of the tournament. Ozil is expected to miss the beginning of the season after his busy summer, but he should return in short order and could see his fantasy value boosted further if the Gunners add attacking talent to the squad this summer.

Euro 2016: Thursday Cheat Sheet

Two huge grudge matches highlight Thursday's three-game slate, though the other game of the day could produce the most fantasy points.

Mesut Ozil: Past News Updates   ( ▲ View most recent update )

July 3, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Ozil made two interceptions, put in two crosses and scored the opening goal of Saturday's shootout victory over Italy.

Ozil struggled to find an abundance of space versus a compact Italy side, but he latched onto a bouncing ball in the box and slotted it home to take the lead in the 65th minute. He did strike the post with his shot in the penalty shootout, but Ozil was once of Germany's most influential players again and should continue as such in Thursday's semi-final match versus the winner of France-Iceland.

June 12, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Ozil landed a shot on goal, put in four crosses and earned an assist in Sunday's 2-0 win over the Ukraine.

Ozil was quiet for much of the match, but as top players do, he stayed the course and was able to set up Bastian Schweinsteiger to put the game away in the latter stages. Ozil is considered one of the top playmakers in World football at the moment, and his central role in what should be an excellent Germany attack will make him a top fantasy option throughout the tournament.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Ozil (hip) is starting Sunday against Aston Villa.

Ozil was expected to return after missing last week's match, and he'll slot into his regular spot in the attacking midfield.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Ozil (hip) was training with the squad and could be available against Aston Villa on Sunday.

While Ozil's return from injury is certainly good news for Arsenal, his availability for Germany in the European Championship in June is perhaps the bigger story. In EPL contests this year, the midfield booted more than 10 crosses into attacking areas on six separate occasions, including a season high 18 against Southampton. The 27-year-old racked up eight goals and 18 assists for Arsenal in all competitions, which is why the Gunners are eager to lock him into a new contract.

May 13, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Arsenal have begun negotiations with Ozil over a new contract for the player, reports the Daily Mail.

The German midfielder has 18 assists so far this season and has two years remaining on his current contract. Both sides are expected to complete the deal, which should be very lucrative for the midfielder.

April 21, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

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.

April 17, 2016

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.
