RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Giroud scored in the 49th minute of Saturday's 3-0 win at Swansea City.

Giroud opened the Arsenal scoring with a header off a corner kick just minutes into the second half Saturday. In doing so, Giroud brought his Premier League tally to six goals, and he's been in particularly good form lately, notching four goals in his past five appearances across all competitions for the Gunners. With Theo Walcott (calf) sidelined, Giroud has a great opportunity to impress now that he's almost assured a starting XI place in Walcott's absence.

Giroud scored a goal on six shots (two on target) and picked up a yellow card in Saturday's 2-1 victory over Everton.

After a tepid opening half-hour, Giroud struck first for the Gunners, putting his head on a looping Mesut Ozil ball to get Arsenal on the board. After spending a long spell as a super-sub, a role he's taken with aplomb, he was rewarded with a spot in the starting XI. His hold-up play provides a vastly different look than that with the pacey Theo Walcott, but Giroud's ability to be successful off the bench may keep him there.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Giroud is starting Saturday against Everton.

Giroud has played well off the bench of late, including a goal against Bayern Munich during Tuesday's Champions League match, and he'll get the start as a reward, with Theo Walcott moving to the bench.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Giroud scored a goal on two shots (two on target) and was issued a yellow card in Tuesday's 2-0 victory over Bayern Munich in the Champions League.

Giroud's 77th minute goal opened the scoring for Arsenal and ended up being the winner for them. Since being relegated to the bench as a super-sub, Giroud has found a niche as a late scorer, scoring in three of his six substitute appearances in the Premier League all while playing less than a half-hour. With Theo Walcott also performing well, it will be difficult for Giroud to crack the starting XI once again, but has found his role on a deep and talented Arsenal team.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Giroud was introduced as a 64th minute substitute and scored shortly after in Arsenal's 3-0 win over Watford on Saturday.

Giroud once again began the match on Arsenal's bench, but was thrown on as a replacement for Theo Walcott after the Gunners scored their first goal. Following his two goals for France over the recent international break, Giroud showed improved composure in front of goal with a rare right-footed finish from close range Saturday. In doing, so Giroud brought his season tally to an understated four goals through nine league matches, evidencing the impact he can have regardless of role.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

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.
