Rosicky's goal in the 89th minute closed the scoring in a 2-0 victory over Everton on Sunday.

Rosicky was selected in the 82nd minute for his experience and defensive chops, but he's not afraid to jump into the offensive flow if a chance shows. He's no longer spry enough to be an Arsenal regular, but his veteran's moxie makes him a valuable closer in spots like this.

Rosicky assisted on one of Alexis Sanchez's two goals during Arsenal's 3-0 win over Stoke City on Sunday. He finished the match with one shot (on target), two key passes and two successful dribbles.

Rosicky got the start ahead of Mathieu Flamini, who was returning from a groin injury, and Aaron Ramsey, who is working his way back from a hamstring issue. Ramsey and Flamini both went unused Sunday, so it's possible that Rosicky could keep the starting job next Sunday against Manchester City, given that he's the most fit of the three.

Rosicky was rested Sunday after being taken off during Thursday's game against QPR with cramps in his calves and hamstrings, manager Arsene Wenger said Sunday.

Rosicky's absence didn't likely alter too many fantasy teams, and he should be fit for Thursday's match at Southampton.

Manager Arsene Wenger said Friday that Rosicky is dealing with a thigh injury and could miss Saturday's game against Stoke City.

Even a fully fit Rosicky wasn't likely to get much playing time, so there aren't many fantasy teams that are affected by his possible absence.

Rosicky suffered a calf injury while on international duty, but manager Arsene Wenger said Thursday that he expects Rosicky to be available for Saturday's match against Hull City.

Even if he's fit enough to play, Rosicky remains a very limited fantasy producer in nearly every format.

Rosicky picked up a knock last Friday while playing for the Czech Republic against Turkey, which held him out of Monday's match against Kazakhstan, The Guardian reports.

Rosicky isn't a great fantasy performer anyway, but he was headed for more playing time thanks to the plethora of injuries Arsenal are dealing with in the midfield. However, he'll now be on the sidelines along with Mesut Ozil (knee), Aaron Ramsey (hamstring) and Mikel Arteta (calf), among others.

Rosicky (thigh) is in the starting XI for Tuesday's match against West Ham.

Despite the start, Rosicky remains a very minimal fantasy player, despite the occasional goal or assist.

Rosicky faces a late fitness test ahead of Saturday's FA Cup semifinal against Wigan due to a thigh injury, the club's official site reports.

With Mesut Ozil (hamstring) and Jack Wilshere (ankle) out, and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain facing a late fitness test himself due to a groin injury, Rosicky will certainly be needed for midfield depth.
