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

Giroud's preseason was delayed due to France's run to the final of the European Championship, so it's not surprising that he continues to be eased in. Alexis Sanchez is starting up front for the Gunners.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Giroud may be considered for selection for Saturday's match with Leicester City, despite returning to training last week.

Giroud could help bolster the attack after Sunday's 4-3 loss to Liverpool. Alexis Sanchez started in the central role but never quite looked comfortable. Giroud's role as centre forward may steady Arsenal's attack if he can get on the field.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Giroud returned to training on Wednesday following his extended holiday after the European Championship.

Giroud made the final with France, which is why his preseason was delayed, and while he is back with the squad, it's unclear if he'll be able to get his match fitness up in time to play Leicester City on 20 Aug.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

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

Given that he is still on holiday, Giroud could miss a number of fixtures to start the season, which could allow Theo Walcott to start up front.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Giroud scored 24 goals and doled out six assists in all competitions last season. He added three goals and two assists in France's run to the final of Euro 2016.

Giroud actually enjoyed the most productive season of his Arsenal career, but the 14-match goal drought he endured during the second half of the campaign coincided with a dip in form by the club, tarnishing what could have been an even better return. Giroud, who is expected to miss the start of the season, is currently the only true striker on Arsenal's roster, but the club has been linked with a move for more attacking talent this summer, which could put his role in question.

July 4, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Giroud won four tackles, scored on both of his shot attempts and added an assist during Sunday's win over Iceland.

Giroud started the party with an expertly-taken volley from a tough angle in the 12th minute, and he capped off his side's scoring when he nodded him a free kick in the 59th minute, just before being subbed off. Giroud was the recipient of some criticism heading into the tournament, but he now has three goals and two assists to his name through four matches played and will be counted on to maintain this level of form Thursday versus Germany.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Giroud had one assist on two key passes and took one shot (off target) in Sunday's 2-1 Euro 2016 victory over Ireland that sent France to the quarterfinals.

Giroud has been a very good complement to Antoine Griezmann's prolific skills. The former made a very smart and precise flick with a header to set up the latter perfectly for the winner. Giroud now has a goal and an assist and will probably continue starting ahead of Anthony Martial.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Giroud opened the scoring for France in their 2-1 win over Romania on Friday, heading in a cross from Dimitri Payet. He also picked up a yellow card later in the second half.

Giroud was extremely active in front of net, finishing with four shots, including two on target. As the head of France's attack, he should remain a top forward option against mediocre competition in the group stage.
