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.

Branislav Ivanovic: Past News Updates   ( ▲ View most recent update )

May 15, 2016

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.

April 2, 2016

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.

February 27, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Ivanovic headed home the match-winner in Saturday's 2-1 victory over Southampton.

As the match wound to a close, Ivanovic got his head through a Willian corner and blasted it past the massive Fraser Forster to give Chelsea the three points. Wearing the armband for the sixth time this season, Ivanovic slotted home his second goal of the season, off his pace of six across all comps last season.

February 3, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Ivanovic took one shot (one on target) while keeping a clean sheet in Wednesday's scoreless draw with Watford.

After two assists in his previous three matches, Ivanovic was decisive at the back and probing moving forward again on Wednesday. This was the team's second straight clean sheet and they'll look to make it three when they take on Manchester United.

January 24, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Ivanovic tallied an assist while keeping a clean sheet in Sunday's 1-0 victory over Arsenal.

With Arsenal down to 10 men, the full back was given even greater freedom to roam up the pitch and found Diego Costa right at the doorstep of the goal thanks to the disorganized Arsenal back line down their skipper for the first and only goal of the match. The assist was only his second of the season, but they've both come in the past three matches.
