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.

Euro 2016: Saturday-Sunday Cheat Sheet

Iceland's surprising run to the quarterfinal has them matched up with the home nation on Sunday, but Saturday features a heavyweight battle between Italy and Germany.

Olivier Giroud: Past News Updates   ( ▲ View most recent update )

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.

June 26, 2016

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.

June 10, 2016

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.

May 15, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Giroud scored three goals on four shots (three on target) in Sunday's 4-0 victory over Aston Villa.

Giroud opened the scoring in the fifth minute and then scored twice toward the end of the second half for his first career Premier League hat trick. While the Gunners sorely lacked finishing quality at times, Giroud's raw numbers ended up being quite solid. He finished with 16 goals in 38 Premier League matches, which put him tied for sixth behind Riyad Mahrez and ahead of teammate Alexis Sanchez, Chelsea's Diego Costa and Manchester United's Anthony Martial.

May 8, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Giroud scored a goal and tallied an assist in Sunday's 2-2 draw with Manchester City.

After a putrid run that saw 15 matches without a goal, Giroud broke duck on a confident, simple header off a corner kick to knot up the score. His assist on Alexis' goal was a clever bit of skill, laying the ball off to the talented Chilean before a strong strike equalized once again. With Danny Welbeck succumbing to a serious-looking knee injury, it will be on Giroud to ensure Arsenal's place in the top-three next week against Aston Villa.

April 30, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Giroud tallied an assist in Saturday's 1-0 victory over Norwich City.

Giroud was shaky all match and seems to have lacked confidence, going 15 Premier League matches without a goal. While he did pick up an assist on a clever knock-down for Danny Welbeck, Giroud has shown little of late to merit inclusion in the starting XI in the final two matches.

April 21, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Giroud took four shots (two on target) in Thursday's 2-0 win over West Brom.

Giroud enjoyed his first Premier League start since Mar 2 with energetic but, yet another, fruitless effort. Until January he was well on pace to make his most prolific season with Arsenal jersey but an improbable dry spell since then has put a hold on those plans. He's only scored two goals in FA Cup action since Jan 13 and has even lost out the starting gig upfront to Danny Welbeck. Giroud will probably go back to the bench on Sunday versus Sunderland as Welbeck may have been just rested against the Baggies.
