Matic tallied an assist in Sunday's 4-0 victory over Manchester United.

Even in this deeper-lying role, Matic has shown a real knack as a playmaker, particularly when paired with the more defensive-minded N'Golo Kante as it's allowed Matic to roam the central channel with impunity. He now has assists in three-consecutive matches (all victories) and has five in nine Premier League matches. Despite a bevy of competition in the center of the park, Matic has established himself as undroppable for Chelsea.

Nemanja Matic: Past News Updates   ( ▲ View most recent update )

October 15, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Matic tallied an assist in Saturday's 3-0 victory over Leicester City.

The Serbian midfielder has been given more space in the center of the park this season and has flourished in a more creative role, picking out his fifth assist in just 10 matches across all comps, picking out Diego Costa in the seventh minute to open the scoring.

September 16, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Matic won snared four interceptions and added an assist during Friday's 2-1 loss to Liverpool.

Typically known for his defensive contributions, Matic pushed up more than usual on Friday and created the Blues' only goal as he snuck down the end line and deftly chipped a pass that Diego Costa buried. Matic now has two assists to his name this season, which is just two off of his career-high in that category. A League Cup match versus Leicester awaits on Tuesday, with a league fixture versus Arsenal set to follow on Saturday.

August 27, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Matic had one assist, two key passes and two clearances in Saturdayís victory against Burnley.

Matic only had two assists last season and may be getting in good form under Chelseaís new manager. This is Maticís second straight match with an assist (first league assist). Maticís next match is September 11th against Swansea City.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Juventus has made a second transfer offer to Chelsea worth £17 million for Matic, reports the Daily Mail.

Sources say the midfielder may be interested in playing in Italy, but might prefer to join former manager Jose Mourinho at Manchester United. However, Chelsea are also interested in keeping Matic and will try to hang on to the man who scored twice in 33 appearances last season.

May 7, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Matic had one goal on his only shot in Saturday's 3-2 loss versus Sunderland.

Matic has now started three straight games and has one goal and one assist while tallying only one shot. Matic does not get involved in the attack enough to make him worth the risk in fantasy. Matic's next match comes Wednesday at Liverpool.

April 23, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Matic picked up an assist on two key passes and four dribbles in Saturday's 4-1 drubbing of Bournemouth.

Matic had a nice run to the goal line and passed the ball smartly back to Eden Hazard, who was clinical for the fourth goal. Matic played well, though he doesn't get involved in the attack much, which limits his fantasy upside in most formats.

April 15, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Matic (leg) is available for Saturday's match against Manchester City.

Matic was thought to need another week to recover, but the 27-year-old Serbian is fit ahead of schedule. His playing time has come in fits and starts this season as Guus Hiddink has deployed a different rotation than that of Jose Mourinho, leaving Matic out in the dark with increasing regularity. The holding midfielder isn't much of a goal scorer and his impact doesn't really show up on a fantasy stat sheet; however, his impact to the side is still palpable.
