27-Year-Old Midfielder Chelsea Premier Full Name: Ramires Santos do Nascimento
Ramires, who has been battling a thigh issue of late, played nine minutes off the bench in Saturday's win over Hull City, finishing with five passes.
John Obi Mikel got the start in place of the suspended Cesc Fabregas, one game after he started in place of the suspended Nemanja Matic. The two starts surely don't play well into Ramires' fantasy prospects, though it's more likely because his thigh isn't 100 percent as opposed to Mikel passing him on the depth chart. With the condensed holiday schedule coming up, Ramires will be needed as healthy as possible.
