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.

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.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Begovic made one save and conceded once in Saturday's 1-0 loss to Stoke City.

After some strong build-up play, Begovic was a bit slow to react and crawl across the goal to parry Marko Arnautovic's strike, which ended up being the difference in the match. While Begovic hasn't been bad, one has to imagine that with Thibaut Courtois in net, Chelsea would not have lost seven of their opening 12 matches. After the international break, the Blues will look to reset against Norwich City.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Begovic made four saves and conceded three goals in Saturday's 3-1 defeat to Liverpool.

After scoring early, Chelsea seemed content to sit back and absorb pressure. However, Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp's "gegenpress" style seemed to catch up with the Blues as Liverpool poured it on in the second half. Begovic has conceded 10 goals in his last five Premier League starts and 17 times in nine matches this season. In what's been a dreadful season for Chelsea, Begovic has done little to make fans forget about how valuable Thiabut Courtois can be for the team.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Begovic made three saves and conceded two goals in Saturday's 2-1 loss to West Ham.

Begovic has been solid while filling in for Thibaut Courtois in Premier League play, but has conceded two or more goals in three of his last four matches. With Courtois sidelined for the near future, Begovic hasn't done anything to lose his place as the first-choice keeper for now, but also hasn't done anything to suggest he'll keep it upon the Belgian's return.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Begovic made four saves while keeping a clean sheet in Tuesday's scoreless draw against Dynamo Kiev in the Champions League.

Begovic has been very good filling in for Thibaut Courtois for Chelsea this season. He's recorded four clean sheets across all competitions in 11 matches and is one of the only positives for Chelsea this season. Back in the Premier League, Begovic gets West Ham over the weekend.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Begovic had to make just one save en route to a clean sheet in a 2-0 victory over Aston Villa on Saturday.

Chelsea didn't necessarily dominate the match, as they were outpossessed, but Villa really didn't look like they were going to score. Begovic should continue to fill in for the injured Thibaut Courtois while he recovers from a knee injury. Chelsea have been terrible so far this season, but Begovic is still a nice value in fantasy until Courtois returns, which isn't expected for quite some time. West Ham is next on the schedule.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Begovic made two saves and conceded three goals in Saturday's 3-1 defeat to Southampton.

While the scoreline was bad, there wasn't much Begovic could do on any of the three goals. Branislav Ivanovic was miserable on the right flank, allowing Dusan Tadic and Sadio Mane to run roughshod over him, giving Begovic little chance to do much if anything. Chelsea has been poor this season, but few of their problems stem from Begovic, who's been admirable in filling in for Thibaut Courtois.
