Ospina made two saves en route to a clean sheet in Saturday's Copa America Centenario third-place game 1-0 win over USA that gives Colombia the bronze medals. Ospina finished the tournament hauling in nine saves, three clean sheets and three goals conceded in five starts taking his international tally to 67 caps.

Ospina is one of the main contenders for goalkeeper of the tournament. He added two more gems to his record book, particularly brilliant was his confident save of a Clint Dempsey's perfect free kick execution. Unfortunately for the 27-year-old keeper he had a reserve role in league action for his club Arsenal last season limiting his outstanding fantasy value there.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Ospina had a rough start to Wednesday's game against Chile, allowing two goals in the first 11 minutes. He finished with just two saves as Colombia was on the attacking end for much of the remaining match.

Colombia will meet the United States again in their next match after having beaten them 2-0 in group stages. With how the USA looked last match, another clean sheet wouldn't be too surprising for Ospina.

Ospina made one save and caught two crosses during Colombia's scoreless draw against Peru on Friday. He also caught a penalty kick during the shootout.

Much like his colleague Pedro Gallese, Ospina responded every time he was needed. Things will get tougher for him in the next round, however, as Colombia will face either Chile or Mexico in the tournament's semifinals.

Ospina made three saves en route to a Copa America quarterfinals clinching 2-1 win over Paraguay on Tuesday.

Ospina was fantastic in the second half helping Los Cafeteros hold a crucial victory to get a quarterfinals berth. The keeper made three jaw-dropping saves, though, he had to capitulate at Victor Ayala's vicious strike. Ospina would look to get another solid fantasy outing on Saturday when Columbia is taking on the scoreless, so far in the tournament, team of Costa Rica in the last group stage match.

Ospina made one save during Colombia's 2-0 win over the United States in the Copa America opener on Friday.

Ospina's single save came from a Clint Dempsey free kick that almost hooked into the net. However, the U.S. struggled to get much going throughout the match, leaving little for Ospina to deal with, a situation that could continue with their two remaining group stage matches.

Ospina made four saves while conceding three goals in Saturday's 3-3 draw with West Ham.

Surprisingly selected over the now-fit Petr Cech, Ospina and the Arsenal defense came undone in the ten minutes either side of halftime, conceding three times to Andy Carroll. Ospina looked uncomfortable coming off his line all afternoon and Carroll's size was problematic throughout. Cech will likely be the one getting the starts moving forward barring a setback with his hamstring.

Ospina made two saves while keeping a clean sheet in Saturday's 4-0 victory over Watford.

Ospina has acquitted himself well in Petr Cech's absence, keeping consecutive clean sheets in the Premier League. Arsenal looked the dominant side throughout and Ospina was there to make sure nothing slipped through the cracks. With Cech's return coming sooner rather than later, it's unclear what Ospina's role will be moving forward as they're out of all other competitions; however, he's shown over the past month that he's more than capable of stepping up if need be.

Ospina made two saves while keeping a clean sheet in Saturday's 2-0 victory over Everton.

Ospina was knocked around a bit, but with Petr Cech sidelined, the Colombian needed to play the full 90 and made the most of his second Premier League start of the season, keeping his first clean sheet after a very strong performance against Spurs last week. Ospina will get a chance to heal up over the international break before returning against Watford on April 2.
