After a good season for The Baggies where they finished 10th in the Premier League and scored a total of 43 goals, in this article we take a look at what does Tony Pulis's side offer us in terms of FPL choices.
Arriving from Southampton for £12 million this season the star man for The Baggies is Jay Rodriguez. He scored a total of 5 goals and assisted 2 and thus scored a total of 73 points in 24 appearences last season. Priced at £6.0m this season Rodriguez is an excellent choice to consider as a third striker provided he is fit and away from injuries. The pre-season games should help us judge how well he adapts himself with his current club.
Scoring 5 goals, assisting 5 and scoring a total of 110 points the player i'm talking about is none other than Nacer Chadli. Priced at £6.0m this season, he is one of the key West Brom players not to forget that he does take set-pieces for them so i can only hope that he justifies his price tag and be an excellent choice.
The budget pick from West Brom is undoubtedly Ben Foster. Last season in 38 appearences he kept a total of 6 cleansheets and thus ended up scoring 113 points. Priced at £4.5 this is season which is totally a bargain considering his abilities and in my opinion he is a player everyone should have as he tends to free up our budget which enables us to focus on the other aspects of building our team.
If we talk about West Brom's defenders the first name that will come to our mind will be Gareth Mcauley but wait! i'm going to recommend Craig Dawson. Dawson scored a total of 4 goals and kept 6 cleansheets in 37 appearences and ended up scoring a total of 102 points. Now the dilema for all of us which west brom defender to choose since all the major 4 defenders ( Mcauley, Dawson, Evans, Nyom) all are priced at £5.0m. Well the answer to that are their pre-season performances plus their new signing Ahmed Hegazi who is just priced at £4.5m may well turn out to be an excellent differential provided Tony Pulis plays him regularly!
Priced at £6.0m this season scored 4 goals and assisted 8 last season and scored a total of 115 points i'm talking of Matt Philips. Philips is one of the best attackers out there currently for The Baggies and has a very important role to play for them so as to they have a good upcoming season. So if you need a decent midfielder under £7.0m who would be able to provide consistent point returns then you could go to Philips.
So in short Looking at the West Brom side and their first six fixtures i would definitely like to have Ben Foster and a defender or a midfielder probably Dawson or Philips in my side. But players like Chadli, Evans, Mcauley, Hegazi, Rodriguez, Rondon are all worth a watch.
