Begovic made seven saves in Wednesday's 1-1 draw to Liverpool.

Despite Begovic's magnificent play, he was unsure in the air all game long. A very poor clearance he made in stoppage time sent the ball right on the header of the wide open Christian Benteke for the equalizer. With new manager on the horizon and a very hesitant number 1 keeper - Thibaut Courtois - Begovic almost made a brilliant case for himself taking over the starting gig at the goal. If Courtois is set to miss the season finale on Sunday too, Begovic will be facing another strong challenge taking on the Foxes and their creative threats - Jamie Vardy and Riyad Mahrez.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Begovic made three saves in Monday's 2-2 draw to Tottenham.

Begovic made everything he could to keep his team in contention in the first half when the Blues had a slew of sloppy plays allowing the Spurs to dominate and put a constant threat on the keeper. Begovic had a good month recording 11 saves, clean sheet and a win in his three starts since Apr 9 but his run is probably over with Thibaut Courtois serving his suspension.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Begovic made three saves in Saturday's 4-1 win over Bournemouth.

Begovic, who returned to the starting lineup with Thibaut Courtois' suspended, was very busy the whole game with the Cherries conceding early and pushing hard for a come back. The keeper made some good saves but was fortunate enough on a few occasions not to concede more goals after some hesitant reactions. Begovic will have a much tougher test against the dominant Spurs on May 2.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Begovic was given the start Saturday at Swansea and recorded five saves, but failed to keep a clean sheet in the 1-0 loss.

Begovic will get a chance to be the club's No. 1 goalkeeper next season and will be a clean sheet candidate the rest of the way.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Begovic will be a substitute for Saturday's match against Bournemouth now that Thibaut Courtois has returned to the starting lineup.

Begovic has been holding down the starting goal keeper position since the injury to Thibaut Courtois back in August. He'll most likely remain on the bench as a backup, now that the Belgian keeper has returned to the lineup, and his Premier League starts will be very limited.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Begovic may lose his spot in the starting XI thanks to the return of Thibaut Courtois in Saturday's fixture with Bournemouth.

Begovic has done yeoman's work in filling in for Courtois, but as soon as the Belgian international was fully fit, he was always going to recapture his starting spot back. It's unclear as to whether Courtois will play on Saturday, which may mean Begovic gets another start, but from that point moving forward, Premier League starts will come few and far between for Begovic.

November 29, 2015

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Begovic made four saves while keeping a clean sheet in Sunday's scoreless draw with Tottenham Hotspur.

Begovic made a number of smart saves in a match that the Bosnian keeper did well to preserve a point for the Blues. In 12 matches in relief of an injured Thibaut Courtois, Begovic has conceded 18 goals and kept four clean sheets including in each of the past two matches. With Courtois' return imminent, Begovic will provide a sturdy backup, but nothing more in the not too distant future.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Begovic made two saves while keeping a clean sheet in Saturday's 1-0 victory over Norwich City.

Begovic had a mostly quiet day, needing only two saves to keep a clean sheet. With Thibaut Courtois coming back in December, Begovic's role as a starting keeper is quickly coming to a close. In 11 matches, Begovic has conceded 18 goals and kept three clean sheets.
