Ben Arfa (coach's decision) didn't make the 18-man squad for the clash with Toulouse on Friday.

Ben Arfa will be a healthy scratch for a fourth consecutive match. At this point the striker's situation is getting critical and will be hard to predict when his exile will be ended or what exactly is going on between him and coach Unai Emery. His fantasy value is next to none at the moment.

Ben Arfa (coach's decision) didn't make the 18-man squad for Tuesday's Ligue 1 clash with Dijon.

Ben Arfa continues to be in exile. Coach Unai Emery confirmed the striker didn't suffer an injury and is out of the squad solely for sporting reasons. It's still unclear, though, for how long will this issue continue. That's the third consecutive game Ben Arfa has been left out of the squad.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Ben Arfa was left out of the 18-man squad for Friday's Ligue 1 fixture versus Caen due to an undisclosed reason.

Ben Arfa was left out of the group for second consecutive match. There was still no indication of an injury, though, coach Unai Emery's statement that he will not tolerate players out of form could be the explanation for the striker's absence. Under those circumstances Ben Arfa's immediate fantasy upside gets very limited.

Ben Arfa didn't make the 18-man squad for Tuesday's Champions League clash with Arsenal, L'Equipe reports.

There was no indication if Ben Arfa's exclusion has been due to fitness concerns or just a coach's decision. The forward has been training but it's something worth keeping an eye on.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Ben Arfa signed a two-year contract with Paris Saint-Germain on Friday after transferring from Nice.

After flopping in the Premier League, Ben Arfa bounced back last season by scoring 17 goals and assisting on six others for Nice, showing PSG enough to warrant bringing him on. PSG will have a huge hole to fill with the departure of Zlatan Ibrahimovic, and while Ben Arfa doesn't play as a striker, he'll surely be used to move the ball up field.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Ben Arfa enjoyed a stellar season for Nice, finishing with 17 goals and six assists while making 33 league starts.

The 29-year-old languished in five seasons in England, never scoring more than five times in any one campaign, but he thrived in his return to France and ascended to sixth in the race for the Golden Boot. Ben Arfa's contract is up at the end of June and has drawn the ire of some major clubs from around Europe, making it increasingly unlikely that he suits up for Nice again next season.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Ben Arfa officially signed with Nice on Monday. ESPN FC reports the deal is an 18-month contract.

Ben Arfa was released from his Newcastle contract last week after his loan to Hull City ended prematurely. He now returns to Ligue 1 four-and-a-half years after leaving Marseille for the Prem, and he is surely expected to get more playing time back in France that he was getting in England.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Ben Arfa and Newcastle have agreed to end his contract, paving the way for him to join Ligue 1 side Nice, the BBC reports.

Ben Arfa will undergo a medical Monday to finalize his deal. Newcastle loaned him to Hull City for the first part of this season, but he failed to get much playing time and they canceled his loan deal before it even expired. Now heading to Ligue 1, his days in the Premier League are likely over for good.
