Chelsea will play early on Saturday against Newcastle after only having two days of rest, leaving the question of players being rested.
The Blues played Wednesday night against Tottenham and now have to face Newcastle in the earliest match on Saturday. With only two days of rest, be weary of players getting rested. Primed candidates for rest are John Terry due to age and and Eden Hazard due to extensive playing time. Oscar, Willian and Azpilicueta could also be in jeopardy. We would avoid these Chelsea players this weekend and instead focus on Gary Cahill and Diego Costa who are rested. Dec 4 - 10:06 PM

John Terry scored an own goal to open up the scoring at Stamford Bridge today but it was irrelevant as the Blues topped Swansea City 4-2.

Swansea looked very impressive in the beginning, pushing Chelsea back and forcing the own goal. They also missed a few other chances that could have increased their lead. The missed chances ended up hurting them, as Diego Costa went on a scoring spree and finished them off in the second half. There is still some concern about Chelsea's defense, but their incredible scoring record this season has pushed them to first place, three points clear of second place Swansea.

Chelsea captain John Terry is our top defensive pick for Week 2 of the Yahoo Fantasy Premier League game.

He wasn't on the score-sheet at Burnley - that was left to Branislav Ivanovic - but Terry is our preference from the Chelsea defence for the Leicester match. Picking him up won't come cheap, but it could prove a worthwhile acquisition when you consider the high probability of a clean sheet against Leicester, and the chance of a goal from a set piece.

John Terry scored twice to help Chelsea come from behind and win their first friendly of the summer against AFC Wimbledon.

AFC Wimbledon took a 2-0 lead in the first half but Jose Mourinho made eight changes at the break and his side came back to win 3-2. Mohamed Salah scored one while John Terry added two. John Terry took the summer off after not being called up to England's World Cup squad and will look to have a successful season at Chelsea. He should be a premium fantasy option considering Jose Mourinho's defensive approach and Chelsea tendency to earn clean sheets. Young midfielder Lewis Baker played great and was involved in all three goals, making a case towards a first-team call up this season.

John Terry has signed a new one year deal with Chelsea and will remain at Stamford Bridge next season.

This will be Terry's 20th year at the club. Terry had a fantastic season this year after suffering from multiple injuries and a lack of trust last season. Terry led Chelsea's squad to 16 clean sheets in his 34 matches. He only missed four matches due to injury and looked healthy and fresh during the entire season. Terry and Gary Cahill should continue to anchor the Chelsea defense next year and we expect them to be one of the best defensive teams in the Premier League once again. Terry, Cahill, Branislav Ivanovic, and Cesar Azpilicueta are all expected to be great fantasy choices next season.

John Terry is a doubt for Chelsea's match this Sunday due to a knock he picked up in training this week.

Terry is getting up there in age and knocks like this are becoming a more common occurrence. Terry is no longer a part of England's National Team and Chelsea are not longer in the title race, leaving the Blues' captain with nothing to play for on Sunday. With that in mind, we find it unlikely for him to feature on Sunday. David Luiz is his most likely replacement next to Gary Cahill. Luiz is a good fantasy pick, especially since he gets involved in the attack. Use him with confidence this week.

Jose Mourinho lost his appeal against an improper conduct charge for his involvement in a sideline incident against Aston Villa.

He will be fined £8,000 for his conduct but will not be suspended for any length of time. Mourinho has been very outspoken since his return to England and continually gets himself in trouble for improper conduct or comments about the referees. Don't expect him to change, as The Special one has been doing his ever since he started coaching. His behavior is part of the reason he is hated and loved by fans around the world.
May 8 - 6:24 PM

Jose Mourinho said in his team's press conference that John Terry has recovered from him foot injury and will start the Champions League match against Atletico Madrid tomorrow.

Terry was considered badly injured and was expected to miss the match but he has made a spectacular recovery and will be starting tomorrow. Terry has trained yesterday and today and that will be enough for him to participate. Defenders usually don't expand as much energy as midfielders and strikers so Terry should be able to go the full 90 minutes alongside Gary Cahill. The news for Petr Cech have not been as good and he has been ruled out for tomorrow's match and likely for the rest of the season.

John Terry's foot injury is not as bad as initially feared by the club and the defender has a small chance of returning for the second leg of Chelsea's Champions League clash with Atletico Madrid.

Scan results gave the defender hope of returning for the second leg after initially being ruled out for several weeks. Terry is very important to Chelsea's success as he is much more reliable than his replacement, David Luiz. He is still 100% ruled out for the match against Liverpool this weekend but if he can return in midweek, he could be a fantasy option in weeks 37 and 38.

John Terry injured his foot during Chelsea's Champions League match against Atletico Madrid today.

Terry tried to play through the pain but eventually limped off the pitch in the second half and was replaced by Andre Schurrle. David Luiz dropped back into defense and Schurrle played in midfield. After the match, Mourinho mentioned that Chelsea would have to play in the final for Terry to play in the Champions League again, implying that the defender could miss up to a month. David Luiz will have to take his spot but the Brazilian is a liability in defense and is certainly a big downgrade. Chelsea face Liverpool's high scoring attack this weekend without their best defender and number one goalkeeper, raising the value of Liverpool's strikers.
Apr 22 - 5:44 PM

Chelsea are close to agreeing on a two year contract extension with John Terry.

Chelsea assistant Steve Holland reported that Chelsea are working on giving Terry a new contract and he hopes to have a deal soon within the next two weeks. Terry has had a phenomenal comeback season under Jose Mourinho and he's led Chelsea to 15 clean sheets in his 32 appearances. That is a phenomenal record and he continues to be a good fantasy choice. Age doesn't affect defenders as much as other positions and they can usually compensate for their lack of speed with intelligence and positioning. Expect Terry's form to continue.

John Terry will be assessed again on Saturday to determine his availability for Chelsea's match against Swansea on Sunday.

Terry is dealing with a foot problem and initial reports suggest he has a good chance of missing this weekend's match. Chelsea are likely to be cautious with Terry, considering the matchup is an easy one and they have an important Champions League game 10 days from now. Due to the uncertainty, I wouldn't recommend Terry nor David Luiz for fantasy purposes. Gary Cahill is still set to start and will be a good option, along with Cesar Azpilicueta and Branislav Ivanovic.

John Terry scored an own goal to give Crystal Palace a 1-0 win over Chelsea in a poor match from the Blues.

Chelsea had 67% of the possession and were the better team for a majority of the game but never found the answer to cracking Crystal Palace's defense. After the goal, Chelsea tried to pressure but the result only made Palace even more dangerous on the counter attack. The Blues were lucky not to have conceded more. With the result, Chelsea seriously hurt their chances of the Premier League title. They are three points ahead of Manchester City but have three extra games to their name. The title race is still wide open and is turning out to be one of the best in recent history.

John Terry turned in a brilliant shift for Chelsea, leading his club to a 1-0 win over Everton and keeping them top of the league table.

Terry came ever so close to getting a touch on the ball that would deflect off of Tim Howard for the only goal of the game. Had he done that, fantasy owners would be dancing in the streets right now. Unfortunately, Terry had come back from injury and considering the opponent and the doubt to his starting meant most active managers probably avoided him. He won every tackle, he won every challenge in the air, and he completed 95 of 96 passes in his efforts. The Chelsea defense continues to dominate, and having one representative on a weekly basis regardless of opponent is looking like a legitimate strategy. They travel to Fulham next.
Feb 22 - 10:38 AM

Jose Mourinho confirmed that John Terry is fit to face Everton on Saturday after missing the last two Premier League games due to a muscle injury.

Terry is priced reasonably in fantasy and will be a good choice this weekend, especially since he is playing at home. Fellow center-back Gary Cahill is also fit to play, meaning Chelsea's regular starting back four is ready to go. Chelsea have kept a clean sheet in six of the last eight Premier League matches that Terry has played in and those clean sheet points are a lot to pass up.
