Koscielny started all seven matches for France during Euro 2016, tallying four shots off target, three clean sheets, seven tackles and two yellow cards on four fouls. He improves to 35 caps and one goal. France suffered an upset 1-0 extra-time loss to Portugal in the final capturing the silver medals.

Koscielny had an excellent campaign last season for Arsenal despite a few minor injuries. The 30-year-old center back had very solid fantasy upside, as well, as he had a knack to go forward, especially on set pieces. The veteran finished the season with four goals, 15 clean sheets and 47 tackles in 33 Premier League starts.

Euro 2016: Saturday-Sunday Cheat Sheet

Iceland's surprising run to the quarterfinal has them matched up with the home nation on Sunday, but Saturday features a heavyweight battle between Italy and Germany.

Laurent Koscielny: Past News Updates   ( ▲ View most recent update )

July 7, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Koscielny secured two interceptions and helped keep a clean sheet during Thursday's 2-0 victory over Germany.

Koscielny and company faced a tough test Thursday, but they held on during some intense pressure during the first half and were able to grind out their biggest win of the tournament. The hosts have now allowed just four goals through six matches, and they will look to clamp down once again in Sunday's final versus Portugal.

June 19, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Koscielny won two tackles, made three interceptions and helped keep a clean sheet during Sunday's goalless draw with Switzerland.

Koscielny played extremely well positionally and was in place to make several key interventions, helping France wrap up the top spot in Group A. He has been a large factor defensively as the hosts have allowed just one goal through three matches, and will look to keep it tight at the back as the knockout phase begins next Sunday versus the third-place finisher from Group C, D or E.

June 15, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Koscielny secured four interceptions and aided in a clean sheet during Wednesday's 2-0 win over Albania.

The center-back played well positionally although he didn't have much to do versus an impotent Albania attack. Koscielny has rarely ventured forward this tournament, but his status as a key cog in France's back line affords him some fantasy value heading into Sunday's match versus Romania.

May 15, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Koscielny kept a clean sheet in Sunday's 4-0 victory over Aston Villa.

Koscielny hasn't always been quite as consistent as the team needs; however, he's often the stabilizing force in the center of Arsenal's defense, which allows Hector Bellerin and Nacho Monreal to probe forward. Koscielny scored four goals on the year, his most since playing in France's Ligue 2 with FC Tours in 2008-09.

April 30, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Koscielny kept a clean sheet in Saturday's 1-0 victory over Norwich City.

Koscielny was assured at the back with both Per Mertesacker and Gabriel, who came on in the second half for the injured Mertesacker. Wearing the captain's armband for the final 40 minutes, the Frenchman looked the part. He even caught his head on a corner kick, but pushed it wide. He'll need to be in top form next weekend against Manchester City.

April 24, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Koscielny was issued a yellow card and kept a clean sheet in Sunday's scoreless draw with Sunderland.

With Per Mertesacker as his central defense partner, Koscielny looks more confident than with Gabriel. While he clumsily picked up a yellow card, it was only his fourth in the Premier League this season as the long-time Arsenal center half is the definition of consistency for a team that's been plagued by defensive lapses at inopportune times.

April 21, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Koscielny picked up a clean sheet and three fouls in Thursday's 2-0 win over West Brom.

With enough offensive weapons to put the Baggies under a heavy siege, Koscielny stayed put and couldn't produce much in fantasy outside the clean sheet. With four goals in 29 Premier League games and a good number of clean sheets the center-back isn't a bad fantasy option against inferior opponents.
