Courtois solidified his status as the dominant goalkeeper at Chelsea this season, as he led the club to the top defensive record in the Premier League and kept an impressive 17 clean sheets.

The Belgian emerged as a big-game player, with wins over Arsenal, Manchester United, Tottenham and Liverpool, and he limited fellow 'keeper Petr Cech to just 10 appearances on the season. Courtois' future lies at Chelsea, where he is firmly entrenched as the No. 1 with Cech reportedly on his way out.

Courtois made four saves but allowed one goal during Chelsea's draw with Burnley on Saturday.

Chelsea were badly exposed on a corner that was headed home by Ben Mee, in which Courtois had no chance to make the save. It occurred after midfielder Nemanja Matic was sent off, with the header coming in the area he usually occupies. Courtois continues to be considered one of the best keepers in the Prem, though he hasn't had a clean sheet since blanking West Ham on Boxing Day. Chelsea are off in Gameweek 27, so fantasy owners will have to make adjustments while the Blues face off against Spurs in the Capital One Cup final.

Courtois made zero saves and was beaten for one goal during Chelsea's 2-1 win over Aston Villa on Saturday.

Villa came into the game without a goal in their last six matches, but a perfect cross from Carles Gil was headed home by Jores Okore, with Courtois unable to even come close to stopping it. While he is widely considered an excellent fantasy option, Courtois hasn't had a clean sheet in Premier League play since Boxing Day.
