RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

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.

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.

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.

Giroud scored two goals during Arsenal's 2-1 win over Newcastle on Saturday.

Giroud is simply on fire right now, scoring nine goals in his last nine matches in all competitions, including four in his last three games. He is now tied for the team-lead with 13 goals on the season, which puts him six behind league-leader Harry Kane.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Giroud was very effective Tuesday versus Monaco, finishing with seven shots, two crosses and a goal in Arsenal's 2-0 Champions League victory.

The Frenchman tried to make up for missing several easy chances in the first leg, but fell short as Monaco advanced on away goals. Giroud is in excellent form with seven goals and an assist in his last eight matches, and Arsenal will now shift focus back to the Premier League, where they will face Newcastle on Saturday.
