Azpilicueta was sent off in the 40th minute of Chelsea's Premier League match against Crystal Palace on Saturday due to a two-footed late challenge.

Azpilicueta has three clearances and two interceptions before being sent off. It's a tricky situation for the Spaniard, who will now be replaced by Filipe Luis in the starting XI, a player who has been more active in Champions League play this season than in the Premier League.

Azpilicueta took one shot on goal and registered his second consecutive clean sheet during Chelsea's 2-0 win over Arsenal on Sunday.

Azpilicueta continues to start Premier League matches for Chelsea, but he has been benched for their two Champions League matches in favor of Filipe Luis. There is little reason at this point to think manager Jose Mourinho will change that tactic any time soon, so fantasy owners in those respective games should plan accordingly.

Azpilicueta assisted on Diego Costa's 59th minute goal during Chelsea's 3-0 win over Aston Villa on Saturday.

The Chelsea defense has not been as solid as it was last season, with Azpilicueta earning just his second clean sheet in six Premier League matches. While he plays on the outside, a vast majority of his fantasy value is still derived from clean sheets. In addition, Filipe Luis is waiting in the wings if Azpilicueta starts to falter.

Azpilicueta signed a five-year contract extension with Chelsea on Tuesday.

Azpilicueta has started all three of Chelsea's Premier League matches this season, although he'll continue to have to look over his shoulder for the upcoming Filipe Luis, who was brought in from Atletico Madrid this summer.

Azpilicueta started and played all 90 minutes of Chelsea's 6-3 victory over Everton on Saturday.

Despite the summer signing of Felipe Luis from Atletico Madrid, Azpilicueta continues to find a place in the starting XI. He looked a bit shaky at Goodison Park, but it probably wasn't enough to get him benched in favor of Luis.

Azpilicueta registered his first clean sheet of the season during Chelsea's 2-0 win over Leicester City on Saturday.

Azpilicueta has started both of Chelsea's Premier League matches this season, but with Felipe Luis waiting for his shot off the bench, it could be only a matter of time before Azpilicueta starts losing a little playing time.

Azpilicueta started and played all 90 minutes of Chelsea's 3-1 win over Burnley on Monday.

Azpilicueta got the start in the season-opener, but he's going to have plenty of competition for playing time from Felipe Luis, who joined from Atletico Madrid this summer.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Azpilicueta is in the starting XI for Chelsea's Premier League match against Arsenal on Monday.

Azpilicueta gets the start ahead of Ashley Cole, who has fallen out of favor with manager Jose Mourino lately. It's a big task for Azpilicueta, as Arsenal have one of the finer attacks in the Premier League.
