Neymar and Luis Suarez dominated while Lionel Messi was out with a knee injury, and while both have tremendous fantasy upside, one is the clear safer choice on DraftKings.

Walcott (calf) could be back after the international break.

Walcott, who last played in Oct. 27, suffered a calf injury and has been sidelined ever since. Manager Arsene Wenger believes that he'll be unavailable for England over the international break and also be out for some time afterwards.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Walcott (calf) will be out of Saturday's match against Swansea.

Walcott went down with a calf injury after coming on for Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain in Arsenal's mid-week league cup tie against Sheffield Wednesday, which compounded an already bad situation. Walcott is due back after the international break, which puts him out for more than three weeks. Olivier Giroud will step in at center forward full-time in Walcott's place.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Walcott is expected to miss at least three games after suffering a calf injury during Tuesday's Capital One Cup match against Sheffield Wednesday, according to the BBC.

Walcott came on for an injured Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain (hamstring) but couldn't get beyond 18 minutes before picking up his own issue. The three-game estimate covers this weekend's Premier League match against Swansea, next week's Champions League match against Bayern Munich and the following weekend's Premier League match against Tottenham. Walcott appeared to have lost his starting central forward job to Olivier Giroud, and the injury all but cements the Frenchman in that spot.

Walcott is available off the bench Saturday against Everton.

With Olivier Giroud playing well of the bench of late, he'll draw a reward start Saturday in place of Walcott, who has been very good for the Gunners this season when he gets enough playing time.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Walcott will have an opportunity to shine for England in place of the injured Wayne Rooney who will likely miss England's two Euro 2016 qualifying matches, reports the Daily Mail.

Walcott has 10 goals in 16 total appearances for both Arsenal and England. He has credited the presence of Thierry Henry in the Arsenal coaching staff to his improvement in form.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Walcott tallied two assists and attempted one shot (none on target) in Sunday's 3-0 victory over Manchester United.

After signing a big new contract over the summer with designs on playing center forward, Walcott was used sparingly in the early going; however, since being inserted into the starting XI, he has two goals and two assists in five matches. Walcott's pace and improved finishing inside the box have made him a dangerous piece of the Arsenal attack and he seems to have replaced Olivier Giroud on a full-time basis up at the top of the formation.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Walcott scored a goal on eight shots (four on target) in Saturday's 5-2 victory over Leicester City.

Walcott looked the part of the pacey center forward he aspires to be in Saturday's thorough victory against the Foxes. Walcott will continue to split time with Olivier Giroud up front, but with more performances like Saturday, Walcott should establish himself as the go-to guy in big situations.
