Ivanovic started the first six league matches of the season, but he was displaced from the lineup by Marcos Alonso in Gameweek 7.

Ivanovic endured a poor run of form during September as the Blues conceded seven goals in three matches, and watched from the bench as a reshuffled back line in a 3-4-3 formation shut out Hull on Oct. 1. After seeing immediate results, it would not be surprising if manager Antonio Conte kept Alonso in the side Saturday versus Leicester.

August 27, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Ivanovic had two interceptions, three clearances, four crosses while picking up a clean sheet and a yellow card Saturday in a win against Burnley.

Ivanovic is the defender Chelsea has favored in the attack early this season, sending in 14 crosses. This is Chelseaís first clean sheet of the season, surrendering one goal in both matches to start the season. Ivanovicís next match is September 11th against Swansea City.

August 20, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Ivanovic sent in seven crosses and won two headers in Saturday's 2-1 victory against Watford.

Ivanovic has 10 combined crosses in two matches to begin the season. The right back is not a huge contributor of goals (two last season), but does become involved in the offense through crosses. Ivanovic's next league match is Saturday against Burnley.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Ivanovic suffered through an immensely turbulent season in 2015/16, scoring a pair of goals with two assists as Chelsea finished 10th in the table and had the 12th-best defensive record.

Ivanovic was part of a squad-wide epidemic of poor form to begin the season, and just as he began to round into form, his fantasy value took a large hit as he moved to center-back to finish out the season. It is unclear just how Ivanovic will be deployed by incoming manager Antonio Conte, but he seems unlikely to reprise his role as one of the top two-way fantasy defenders regardless.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Ivanovic (groin) is starting on Sunday against Leicester.

Ivanovic will line up at centreback alongside Gary Cahill, with Cesar Azpilicueta and Baba Rahman on the outside.

May 13, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Ivanovic (groin) will need to pass a fitness test prior to Sunday in order to be in the squad against Leicester City.

For most of the year, Ivanovic has been an ironman for the Blues as he appeared in 32 of a possible 37 Premier League matches. In his previous five contests, the 32-year-old fired off four crosses from the back line in addition to making nine tackles and five interceptions. While he doesn't rack up the stats, fantasy owners know they are getting a consistent defender who will be on the pitch, which is a valuable trait.

April 23, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Ivanovic posted one shot off target and two tackles in Saturday's 4-1 win over Bournemouth.

The Blues' defense wasn't the most efficient, allowing the Cherries to post up constant threat on Asmir Begovic, especially while the hosts were still in contention. Ivanovic hasn't been the same fantasy weapon as last season, especially lining up as a centerback recently, but he's still an important piece of Chelsea's back line with a consistent spot in the starting lineup.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Ivanovic and the Chelsea defense held Aston Villa scoreless in a 4-0 road win Saturday. It is Chelsea's first clean sheet since Feb. 3.

A year after scoring four goals and six assists, Ivanovic has been a bit of a disappointment this season. He has just eight clean sheets on the campaign to go with two goals and three assists.
