Hazard made the starting XI for Saturday's game against Swansea.

Hazard shook off a knock picked up on Belgian international duty and could well pick up at least an assist given Diego Costa was also declared fit.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Hazard's shot in the 67th minute bounced off defender Seamus Coleman and found the back of the net during Chelsea's 6-3 demolition of Everton on Saturday.

Unfortunately, the own goal doesn't get Hazard any fantasy points in most leagues, and he's not even given credit for a shot attempt. Hazard has been a bit up-and-down this season, failing to register a shot in two of three games, although he scored in the other and is always dangerous with the ball on his foot, but if he isn't going to start scoring more, fantasy owners may start to jump ship given his high price tag in salary cap games.

Hazard scored in the 77th minute of Chelsea's 2-0 win over Leicester on Saturday.

After a relatively quiet Premier League opener last Monday against Burnley, Hazard put both of his shots on target Saturday, which included his first goal of the season. He'll look to start a goal streak next weekend against Everton at Goodison Park.

Hazard started and played 84 minutes before being replaced by Didier Drogba in Chelsea's 3-1 win over Burnley on Monday.

Manager Jose Mourinho speculated in the days ahead of the match that Hazard would be held out after minimal training following a quarterfinal run at the World Cup with Belgium, but there was Hazard on Monday back in his usual spot at kickoff. Hazard helped set up Andre Schurrle's 21st-minute goal by dribbling through multiple defenders to get the ball near the box, showing he remains a top class player in the Premier League. He remains an elite fantasy option with a home match against Leicester City next on the fixture list.

Hazard is in the starting XI for Chelsea's Premier League opener against Burnley on Monday.

Manager Jose Mourinho indicated that he was going to keep Hazard out after a decent run with Belgium in the World Cup, but he has decided to start him, along with Andre Schurrle, Oscar, and Thibaut Courtois. Fantasy owners are surely happy about the news, as any lineup with an active Hazard in it is a worthy competitor.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Hazard is expected to be held out of Chelsea's Premier League opener Monday against Burnley, ESPN FC reports.

Hazard made it to the quarterfinals of the World Cup with Belgium this summer and has not been deemed fully fit yet by manager Jose Mourinho. While Chelsea have the depth to hold off on bringing Hazard on, it's certainly a hit for fantasy owners who likely paid a big price for Hazard expecting him to play.

Hazard played 30 minutes in Chelsea's friendly against Werder Bremen on Sunday, his first action during Chelsea's preseason tour.

Hazard was a late arrival to training this summer after playing for Belgium in the World Cup. He is coming off an excellent 2013-14 Premier League campaign that saw him score 14 goals and assist on seven others, and he is widely picked to be a top player at his position again this season.

Hazard assisted on Divock Origi's 88th minute goal during Belgium's 1-0 win over Russia at the World Cup on Sunday.

Hazard has now picked up an assist in both of Belgium's games in Brazil, although he has yet to find the back of the net. He'll look to break his scoreless streak Thursday in Belgium's group stage finale against Korea Republic.
