Okazaki put together two goals and one assist in a big win against Hamburg last Saturday. He now has eight goals on the season.

It'd be rather difficult to name more than a handful of players in the Bundesliga that have delightfully surprised fans as much as Okazaki has this season. He currently sits in third place among the league's top scorers. His proficiency around the goal has been paramount to his success. At the halfway point in the term, his value on the fantasy market is escalating.

Okazaki scored in the 8th and 68th minutes of Saturday's 2-0 win over TSV Eintracht Braunschweig.

Okazaki was in fine form Saturday, taking five shots on the day, with three landing on goal. It was the most shots he's taken in a Bundesliga match this year and the first time he's scored since Mainz's opening-weekend match against VfB Stuttgart.
