Oscar assisted on Eden Hazard's seventh-minute goal during Chelsea's 2-0 win over Hull City on Saturday.

Oscar has not scored a goal himself since Nov. 1 against QPR, but he's picked up four assists in his last seven appearances. He's a mainstay in manager Jose Mourinho's starting XI and should be right back there Dec. 22 at Stoke City.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Oscar picked up his fourth assist of the season during Chelsea's 3-0 win over Tottenham on Wednesday.

Oscar has two assists in his last three Premier League matches, as he continues to play very well setting up the players in front of him. However, he may be a little less attack-minded Saturday against Newcastle, as Nemanja Matic, the midfield rock behind him defensively, is suspended after picking up his fifth yellow card of the season against Spurs.

Oscar took a team-high five shots, though only one was on target, and he made five key passes during Chelsea's scoreless draw with Sunderland on Saturday.

Oscar has been very active in the attack of late, taking 11 shots in the last three games, though only three have been on goal. Chelsea play Spurs on Wednesday, so Oscar could have his playing time limited with their next game coming Saturday at Newcastle.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Oscar scored in the 32nd minute of Chelsea's 2-1 win over QPR on Saturday.

Oscar now has three goals on the season, with each effort coming against a bottom-five club (Aston Villa, Crystal Palace and QPR), while also adding two assists. He's actually outperformed teammate Eden Hazard this season, though the latter continues to have a better fantasy upside.

Oscar scored off a free kick in the sixth minute and then assisted on Cesc Fabregas' 51st minute goal in Chelsea's 2-1 win over Crystal Palace on Saturday.

Oscar has been playing very well of late, recording two goals and an assist in his last three league matches. He's solidified his spot in the starting XI and should continue to center the midfield for a Chelsea squad with strong title aspirations this season.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Oscar scored in the seventh minute of Chelsea's 3-0 Premier League win over Aston Villa on Saturday.

Oscar has now scored in back-to-back matches thanks to his goal in Wednesday's Capital One Cup victory over Bolton. He isn't a high-volume scorer, so while he plays an important role in the Chelsea midfield, there are higher-performing options.

Oscar assisted on Loic Remy's 81st minute goal during Chelsea's 4-2 win over Swansea City on Saturday.

Oscar missed Chelsea's 6-3 Premier League win over Everton before the international break due to an ankle injury, but he made two substitute appearances for Brazil, prompting his return to the starting XI on Saturday. His ankle didn't appear to be a problem at all, as he picked up his first league assist of the season while playing the full 90 minutes.

Oscar was held out of Saturday's Premier League match against Everton after suffering an ankle injury in training Friday, according to Get West London.

There haven't been many details about Oscar's injury, so it is unclear if he will be out for awhile. Luckily for Chelsea, he will be able to rest over the international break with the hope of being ready to face Swansea City on Sept. 13.
