Ramires came on for Andre Schurrle at halftime and picked up an assist on the last of Diego Costa's three goals during Chelsea's 4-2 win over Swansea City on Saturday.

Ramires has been in remarkable form of late, posting one goal and three assists in his last two Premier League matches. Manager Jose Mourinho is still using a number of different players in his starting XI, which makes relying on Ramires for fantasy purposes a bit tough given the inconsistent playing time.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Ramires had a goal and two assists during Chelsea's 6-3 rout of Everton on Saturday.

As a defensive midfielder, this output was extremely surprising from Ramires. Coincidentally, Nemanja Matic, who also plays more defensively, had a goal and an assist himself. Fantasy players are advised not to go too crazy on Ramires, as he has now matched his goal and assist production from last season.

Ramires, who missed Chelsea's Premier League opener on Monday due to a four-match ban stemming from last season, came on for Andre Schurrle in the 64th minute of Chelsea's 2-0 win over Leicester on Saturday.

Ramires is primarily a defensive midfielder and he lacks touch around the goal, which keeps him from being a reasonable fantasy producer.

Ramires returned to light training Monday after a break following the World Cup.

Ramires, who is suspended for the season-opener against Burnley on Aug. 16 due to a violent conduct charge stemming from last season, will have to fight for a spot in the starting XI this season, although he's not much of an offensive player anyway, which limits his fantasy upside.

Ramires is in the starting XI in place of Hulk (hamstring) for Brazil's World Cup match against Mexico on Tuesday, reports.

Hulk downplayed the injury in the previous days, but it's clearly enough to keep him limited. Ramires isn't nearly the offensive threat that Hulk is, so it's tough to expect significant fantasy production from the Chelsea midfielder.

Real Madrid is reportedly very interested in signing the Chelsea midfielder. The London club does not seem ready to let the player go, though, and Real Madrid will have to work to complete any agreement.

Ramires was given a four-match suspension after Chelsea accepted the charge of violent conduct, and he will miss the remaining games this season, as well as the first of next season, reports the Daily Mail.

The midfielder's clash with Sebastian Larsson was caught on video, which generated the charge. He and the team chose not to appeal, and he will begin serving the ban immediately.

Ramires has been charged by the FA for swinging at Sunderland's Sebastian Larsson and he is facing a four-match ban, The Guardian reports.

Ramires is likely to appeal the suspension, especially with only three Premier League matches remaining this season.
