RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

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 is available off the bench for Wednesday's match against Everton.

Petr Cech will get the start in his absence.

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.

Manager Jose Mourinho said Friday that Courtois (finger) is still not fully fit, but he will be available for selection Saturday against Swansea City.

Given the lack of full fitness, Petr Cech will likely get another start in Courtois' place.

Courtois is available off the bench for Saturday's Premier League match against Newcastle, according to ESPN FC.

Petr Cech is getting the start for Courtois, who allowed five goals to Spurs his last time out. It's unclear if Courtois will sit for a number of matches, as Cech continues to be one of the best keepers in the Prem.

Courtois didn't have to make a single save to pick up his seventh clean sheet during Chelsea's 2-0 win over West Ham on Boxing Day.

Courtois now has six shutouts in his last seven starts, including five in Premier League play. The Chelsea defense has been excellent of late, and they'll look to continue their fine streak Sunday at Southampton.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Courtois (groin) made two saves during Chelsea's 2-0 win over Stoke City on Monday, his sixth clean sheet of the season.

Courtois had not played since Dec. 6 against Newcastle, but the Potters didn't do much to test him in his first game back. With the injury break, it's possible that he could play every game throughout the condensed holiday schedule, though if he does not, Petr Cech would be back to protect the woodwork.
