October 2, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Chiellini kept a clean sheet in Sunday's 3-0 victory over Empoli.

With a combined age of 96, the Juventus back-three has barely slipped this season, racking up clean sheet after clean sheet while winning six-of-seven in Serie A as they already look well on their way to another Italian crown. With the wing backs providing much of the offensive support, Chiellini's offense will really only come from set pieces.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Chiellini and the Juve back line held Dinamo Zagreb scoreless in Tuesday's 4-0 Champions League win. He finished with one shot and two successful tackles.

It was another dominant performance by Juventus, who have three straight clean sheets. They'll try and make it a fourth against Empoli this weekend, a club that has just two goals in six league matches.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Chiellini had a clean sheet and two tackles in a 0-0 draw with Sevilla.

He was quiet on the offensive end, but helped to stop numerous attacks on the night.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Chiellini had an assist on two key passes, two interceptions, two fouls, and two crosses on Saturday in a 2-1 win over Fiorentina.

The dynamic defender was yet again key in the win, as his wonderful cross led to Sami Khedira's opening goal. He will likely be one of the first names on the team sheet when the club travels to Lazio on the 27th.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Chiellini made four starts for Italy during Euro 2016, tallying one goal on his lone shot, three clean sheets, five tackles and one yellow card on four fouls. He takes his international record to seven goals in 88 caps. Italy were eliminated dramatically after a quarterfinals penalty shoot-out loss to Germany.

Chiellini had a solid campaign with Juventus whenever on the field last season. The 31-year-old veteran center back, though, found his fantasy value primarily on clean sheets as he finished the season with one goal, 13 clean sheets and 35 tackles in 24 Serie A appearances (21 starts).

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Chiellini made three interceptions during Friday's 1-0 victory over Sweden.

Chiellini and his defensive mates were tasked with slowing down the dangerous Zlatan Ibrahimovic, and they did so with relative ease, limiting him and the rest of the Swedes to four shots off target. Chiellini is a key cog in the formidable Italian back line and will continue as such as the unit looks to secure a perfect defensive record in the group stage Wednesday versus Ireland.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Chiellini won two tackles and made three interceptions during Monday's 2-0 victory over Belgium.

Chiellini was excellent in a positional sense as Italy played the back-three formation to perfection and stifled one of the most gifted attacking corps in the tournament. He is not known for his offensive contributions, but as a member of one of the strongest defensive units in the tournament, he will carry modest fantasy value into Friday's match versus Sweden.
