Giroud came off the bench and scored a goal in Saturday's 5-2 victory over Leicester City.

The oft-maligned Frenchman was introduced as a late substitute and scored a good goal in stoppage time to further put the game out of reach. The 28-year-old now has three goals to his name, but is plagued by spells of wastefulness and a poor temperament that saw him get sent off in the first half in Croatia during the Champions League.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Giroud scored an 85th minute goal after being introduced as a second-half substitute during Saturday's win over Stoke City.

Giroud was once again displaced by Theo Walcott at central striker, and although Walcott scored Arsenal's opener Saturday, the Englishman also wasted a couple opportunities to impose further damage. After replacing Walcott in the 75th minute, Giroud missed a sitter of his own, but rallied to head home his second goal of the season later on. Given the uncertainty surrounding Arsenal's weekly starter up front, Giroud's fantasy stock is a bit murky in advance of Saturday's match versus Chelsea.

Giroud supplied the opening goal in Arsenal's 2-1 win at Crystal Palace on Sunday, converting a fantastic volley in the penalty area at the 16-minute mark.

Giroud's first goal of the campaign came in style, as the Frenchman pivoted backwards to hit a cross in mid-air on his preferred left foot. In doing so, Giroud also scored Arsenal's first goal of this season, which should earn him another start next weekend when the Gunners host Liverpool.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Giroud (head) is starting Sunday against Crystal Palace.

Giroud took a nasty shot to the head last weekend against West Ham and needed attention from the physios before eventually getting back in the game. He'll lead the line Sunday flanked by Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil, with Theo Walcott and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain off the bench.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Giroud suffered a head injury during Sunday's match against West Ham but he was in stable condition later in the day and didn't require additional medical attention.

It was a scary moment for Giroud who went up for a header and collided with defender James Tompkins. The forward appeared limp on the pitch but Arsenal has denied reports of a concussion or unconsciousness. As a result, he'll be in contention for a spot on the 18-man roster this next Sunday against Crystal Palace, barring a further announcement from Arsenal.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Giroud overcame an ankle injury early on in the season to score 15 goals in just 23 starts after missing three months.

The Frenchman was much more prolific on a per-game basis than he was last season, when he scored just three more goals despite playing 20 more matches. Giroud meshed well with Arsenal's other attacking acquisitions and looks set to remain with the club, although they will likely bring in another striker this summer.

Giroud took five shots, with four on goal, and scored one minute into second-half stoppage time during Arsenal's 4-1 win over Liverpool on Saturday.

Arsenal was up 3-0 after 45 minutes and yet Giroud hadn't played a role in any of them. However, fantasy owners were relieved to see him find the back of the net in the waning moments of the match, his seventh goal in his last six Premier League matches. He's arguably the hottest goal-scorer in England right now and will look to add to his tally next Saturday against Burnley at Turf Moor.
