Willian was very active on Saturday, getting off three crosses, four key passes, four completed dribbles and an assist in a 2-0 win over Aston Villa.

Willian seemed to take over the Eden Hazard role for Saturday's game and did it very effectively. Not only did he setup the whole offense, he did a nice job of getting back on defense and not leaving the pitch open. That is what manager Jose Mourinho criticized of Eden Hazard earlier in the week and Willian clearly wanted to send a message. It seems unlikely he'll keep this role, but the performance is a good sign going forward.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Willian scored off a free kick in the first half of Saturday's match against Southampton, but he had to be replaced in the 64th minute because of an illness.

Willian was reportedly throwing up at halftime, and while he was still able to play for nearly 20 more minutes, he eventually couldn't go any further, coming off for Pedro. He has been tremendous on free kicks this season and is likely to continue taking them when the club comes together after the international break.

Willian scored in Saturday's 2-2 draw at Newcastle.

Willian struck an 86th minute free kick that went straight into the back of the net. The Brazilian is one of manager Jose Mourinho's trusted lieutenants and contributes as much on the defensive side of things as he does going forwards. For this reason he is not as valuable as the likes of Pedro and Eden Hazard from a fantasy point of view.

Willian (hamstring) is fully fit and available for Saturday's fixture against Newcastle.

After sitting out the mid-week match against Walsall and last weekend's fixture against Arsenal, Willian is back and ready to feature against Newcastle. The Brazilian midfielder has one assist in five Premier League matches and a goal in the team's Champions League match against Maccabi Tel-Aviv.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Willian (hamstring) has been ruled out for Saturday's match against Arsenal.

Willian picked up the injury during Wednesday's Champions League match against Maccabi Tel Aviv, though not before scoring off an excellent free kick that likely should have been saved. With Oscar and Pedro also battling injuries, it's unclear how the Blues will line up against the Gunners.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Willian is available off the bench Saturday against Everton.

With John Obi Mikel entering the starting XI to play alongside Nemanja Matic, Cesc Fabregas will play the No. 10 role, with Pedro on the wing, leaving no spot for Willian.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Manager Jose Mourinho said Friday that the club will not be selling Willian.

The addition of Pedro this week has increased the speculation that Willian could be moved, but Mourinho tried to squad the rumors as much as he could Friday. However, even if he stays with the club, Willian could lose playing time on the wing to Pedro, or he could move more centrally in place of Oscar.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Willian will be unavailable for the beginning of the 2015/16 Premier League season, as he will get an extended rest following the Copa America this summer, reports.

Willian was a consistent starter for Chelsea this season, though his statistical totals (two goals and three assists in 36 games) made him a fairly pedestrian fantasy option in most formats.
