Schurrle, who has been a doubt due to an illness, was an unused substitute Saturday against West Brom.

Manager Jose Mourinho used his subs on Ramires, Didier Drogba and Loic Remy on Saturday, which left Schurrle to stay warm on the bench. He's a decent contributor when he's on the pitch, but his playing is very inconsistent, which makes him a tough fantasy player to rely upon.

Schurre returned from an illness as a late sub in Chelsea's 1-1 draw with Manchester United on Sunday.

Schurrle continues to move in-and-out of the starting XI for Chelsea, and he could very well be the lone striker in Tuesday's Capital One Cup match against Shrewsbury Town, though Diego Costa (hamstring) is expected to return for Saturday's Premier League match against QPR.

Schurrle came off the bench and opened the scoring in Chelsea's 1-1 Premier League draw with Manchester City on Sunday.

After netting in the Premier League opener against Burnley on Aug. 18, Schurrle now has two goals in four appearances. Unfortunately for fantasy owners, it appears that he has lost his spot in the starting XI to Willian, which obviously limits his fantasy value.

Schurrle was an unused substitute for Chelsea's 6-3 win over Everton on Saturday.

Willian got the start in Schurrle's place, and while the former only played 75 minutes before being subbed off, Schurrle stayed on the bench as Chelsea were well ahead. Despite playing in only two of three games, Schurrle still leads the team with 11 shots this season, although only one has landed on goal.

Schurrle had a game-high six shots during Chelsea's 2-0 win over Leicester on Saturday, although none landed on goal.

Schurrle has started both of Chelsea's Premier League matches this season and seems to be ahead of Willian on the depth chart. He is very active on the attack and could be a solid fantasy producer if he continues to be in the starting XI. With Chelsea collecting six points in their first two matches, it's tough to see why manager Jose Mourinho would make a switch now.
