Willian: Past News Updates   ( ▲ View most recent update )

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Willian signed a four-year extension with Chelsea on Tuesday keeping the player in London through July of 2020.

Willian was one of the few consistent performers in a dreadful Chelsea campaign last season and seems like he'll be counted on for a while even by the new management. With a better performance from the Blues the attacking midfielder may have even higher fantasy upside during the 2016/17 season.

Willian recorded three starts for Brazil in Copa America 2016, hammering four shots (one on target) and two fouls, taking his international tally to six goals in 38 caps. Brazil finished third in group B with four points and were shockingly eliminated of Copa America 2016.

Willian was one of the few effective weapons for Chelsea in a tortures season. The creative winger had a solid fantasy value scoring five times and assisting for a goal on six more occasions in 35 Premier League appearances (32 starts) with a total of 11 goals in 48 appearances across all competitions.

Willian lit up the stats sheet tallying an assist, three shots (one on target), three dribbles, six crosses and a yellow card in Monday's 2-2 draw to Tottenham.

Willian was all over the place doing everything. His fantasy owners will regret him only getting an assist from his fantastic delivery from a corner which created a chaos in the Spurs defense and allowed Gary Cahill to open the Blues' account for the day. He's now on five goals and six assists in Premier League and 11 goals and seven assists in 45 appearances across all competitions with Chelsea having one more game left than the majority of the teams in the league the rest of the way.

Confirmation and more specifics on the injury will follow after the game but Willian was down on the ground for a few minutes and limped off very slowly. The attacking midfielder, who, finished the game with a goal on four shots (one on target), two dribbles and five crosses, was replaced by Ruben Loftus-Cheek.

Willian was absent from the last two matches for undisclosed reasons and will be making his return against a strong Man City squad. He'll hope to continue his attacking and creating success as he becomes a focal point in the Chelsea midfield.
