Ramires picked up his fourth assist of the season by setting up Eden Hazard in the 22nd minute of Wednesday's 1-0 win over West Ham.

Ramires got the start as part of Jose Mourinho's squad rotation, so he's not necessarily locking himself into a consistent starting spot. With Nemanja Matic's three-match ban now over, it's likely Ramires could move back to a reserve role.

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.

Ramires (groin) came on for Willian in the 86th minute of Saturday's match against West Brom, finishing with 10 touches.

Chelsea were comfortably up 2-0 for the entire second half, and Ramires was brought on to make sure it stayed that way. He's been a decent fantasy producer this season when healthy, though he continues to play a more defensive role, which will limit his upside in most formats.
