Ramires returned to light training Monday after a break following the World Cup.

Ramires, who is suspended for the season-opener against Burnley on Aug. 16 due to a violent conduct charge stemming from last season, will have to fight for a spot in the starting XI this season, although he's not much of an offensive player anyway, which limits his fantasy upside.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Ramires is in the starting XI in place of Hulk (hamstring) for Brazil's World Cup match against Mexico on Tuesday, reports.

Hulk downplayed the injury in the previous days, but it's clearly enough to keep him limited. Ramires isn't nearly the offensive threat that Hulk is, so it's tough to expect significant fantasy production from the Chelsea midfielder.

Ramires was given a four-match suspension after Chelsea accepted the charge of violent conduct, and he will miss the remaining games this season, as well as the first of next season, reports the Daily Mail.

The midfielder's clash with Sebastian Larsson was caught on video, which generated the charge. He and the team chose not to appeal, and he will begin serving the ban immediately.

Ramires was sent off during Saturday's Premier League match at Aston Villa and will now miss the next three games.

Ramires isn't a great fantasy contributor, but he's a favorite of manager Jose Mourinho. With the ban, he will now miss matches against Arsenal, Crystal Palace and Stoke City.

Ramires scored in the 35th minute of Chelsea's 2-1 win over Crystal Palace on Saturday.

Eden Hazard set Ramires up for his first goal in Premier League play this season. The Brazilian is definitely a favorite of manager Jose Mourinho, although he doesn't have nearly the fantasy upside of teammates Hazard and Oscar in the midfield.

Ramires assisted on Demba Ba's 90th minute goal during Chelsea's 3-0 win over Southampton on Sunday.

The assist was Ramires' second this season, with the first coming back against Cardiff on October 19. He doesn't get involved in Chelsea's scoring nearly enough to warrant much fantasy consideration, with Oscar, Eden Hazard and occasionally Juan Mata as better plays out of the Chelsea midfield.
