August 20, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Costa had one goal and picked up a yellow card in Saturday's 2-1 win over Watford.

Costa has been consistent this season, picking up a yellow card, getting lucky not to be sent off with a questionable no call from the official and then the late game winner in both matches. This match Costa's close call came on a dive just outside the box which should have resulted in his second yellow. Fortunately for Chelsea he stayed in the match and capitalized on a beautiful through ball from Cesc Fabregas late in the match to give The Blues their second straight thrilling victory. Costa's next league match is Saturday against Burnley.

August 15, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Costa scored a goal on three shots (two on target) and picked up a yellow card in Monday's 2-1 victory over West Ham.

This match featured what Chelsea fans love about Costa, a goal-hungry, tenacious centre forward with a knack for scoring timely goals, and the Costa that looks a razor's edge from being sent-off at any moment. Costa's goal was well-taken from the edge of the box, linking up well with summer signing Michy Batshuayi to grab all three points. However, he picked up a caution in the 19th minute for dissent and didn't seem to change his rather reckless style of play for the following 70 minutes. He had a pair of challenges that other refs may have issued cards for including a raised-studs challenge on keeper Adrian in the 68th minute. The specter of disciplinary problems will haunt the Spanish striker wherever he goes, but he showed why he's worth the risk.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Costa (back) is starting on Monday against West Ham.

Costa's back injury was never considered serious, and he'll get the opening start for the Blues despite continued transfer rumors about going back to Spain. Michy Batshuayi is available off the bench.

August 15, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Chelsea manager Diego Conte said that Costa is not leaving the club, and that he is set to lead the team's attack once he returns from a back injury on Monday, reports the Daily Mail.

Chelsea faces West Ham in the season-opening match, but there had been speculation about Costa's future in the league. Conte said that he is happy the striker decided to stay, and that he admires his spirit and wants his passion in the side.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Costa will not play Saturday against Real Madrid because of a back injury, Sky Sports reports.

Costa was unable to play against Liverpool earlier this week due to the injury, and it is unclear if he will be fit enough to take part in Chelsea's Premier League opener, which comes 15 Aug. against West Ham.

July 12, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Costa scored 16 goals and provided seven assists in all competitions this season.

Like many of his teammates, Costa began the season with a wretched run of form, but he seemed to flip a switch around Christmas time, as he scored 12 goals and added six assists from that point forward, putting him among the top producers in the league during that time. Costa troublingly dealt with numerous conduct issues, as he was sent off, received suspension and was at the root of several confrontations with opponents. Despite his antics and being linked with a return to Atletico Madrid, Costa is expected to remain in London as new manager Antonio Conta takes the reins.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Costa (hamstring) will not feature against Leicester City on Sunday.

Costa was stellar in his previous two contests as he recorded a goal and an assist. While the team may have had a forgettable year, the forward managed 14 scores in all competitions despite appearing in just 36 contests. If he can stay healthy for the entire campaign, the 27-year-old is poised to have another standout season in 2016-17.
