Ozil is on the bench for Saturday's match against Leicester City.

Ozil's preseason was delayed due to Germany's long run in the European Championship, so he'll only make the bench after being held out for the opener. Santi Cazorla is in the No. 10 role for the Gunners on Saturday.

August 18, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Ozil could return to the lineup for Saturday's match with Leicester City.

Ozil returned to training last week and may play because of the mounting injuries to Arsenal's team. After providing six goals and 19 assists last season, his return to the lineup would help after a disappointing defeat to Liverpool. If he is on the field, he has value as one of the Premier League's most creative midfielders.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Ozil returned to training on Wednesday after an extended holiday following the European Championship.

Ozil has been ruled out for the Gunners' Premier League opener, which comes this Sunday against Liverpool, and it remains unclear if he'll be able to regain his match fitness before they take on Leicester City on 20 Aug.

August 8, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Ozil has yet to return to training following the European Championship, and he will not play in Arsenal's Premier League opener against Liverpool on Sunday, ESPN FC reports.

Ozil will once again be a vital piece of the Gunners' attack this season, and his delayed start will be joined by those of Laurent Koscielny and Olivier Giroud, leaving Arsenal quite light to begin the new campaign.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

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.

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.
