Courtois needed to make just one save to record his third clean sheet of the season during Chelsea's 2-0 win over West Brom on Saturday.

While the defensive effort was solid Saturday, Chelsea have been fairly leaky this season, which has kept Courtois from posting more clean sheets. That being said, he's allowed just one goal in six other matches this season, giving him a boost in fantasy formats that credit points for the lone scores.

He remains the top Chelsea keeper, though he'll have a tough job facing Manchester United at Old Trafford on Oct. 26 after a much easier Champions League tie against Maribor on Tuesday.
