McAuley started all four games for Northern Ireland in Euro 2016, recording one goal on three shots (two on target), one own goal, one clean sheet, three tackles and four fouls. He takes his international record to eight goals in 65 caps. N. Ireland lost 1-0 to Wales on Saturday with McAuley's own goal and were knocked out of the tournament at the round of 16.

McAuley had a solid campaign with West Brom last season. The 36-year-old center back was reliable, though, not very productive fantasy player. He finished the season with one goal, one own goal, 10 clean sheets, 46 tackles and four yellow and one red cards in 34 Premier League starts.

Gareth McAuley: Past News Updates   ( ▲ View most recent update )

June 25, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

McAuley knocked in the only goal of Northern Ireland's 1-0 loss to Wales. It was a lose-lose situation as the ball was likely to go in if McAuley touched it or not. He didn't have too much work on the day, finishing with three aerials won.

It was an unfortunate ending to McAuley's tournament as he eventually was subbed out for a forward shortly after the own goal. McAuley was at the head of the Northern Ireland defense that allowed just three goals in four games.

June 16, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

McAuley landed two shots on target, scored the opening goal and helped keep a clean sheet during a Man of the Match performance in Thursday's 2-0 win over the Ukraine.

The veteran defender sprung up to nod home the most important goal in his nation's history in the 49th minute, as the defense tightened the screws to preserve Northern Ireland's first ever Euro victory. McAuley and company have allowed just one goal through two games, but they will face a tough test Tuesday as they try to secure a place in the next round versus Germany.

March 6, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

McAuley secured two interceptions and won a tackle during Sunday's 1-0 win over Manchester United.

The 36-year-old put in a solid shift as the Baggies recorded a big win, but he still made a relatively small fantasy impact. McAuley is more valuable to his team in real life than he is to fantasy owners, and this should remain the case versus Arsenal next week.

February 27, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

McAuley (hamstring) is returning to the starting lineup for the match against Crystal Palace on Saturday.

McAuley has been a solid piece of the defense for West Brom so far this season, and his return to the starting lineup could help keep a struggling Palace attack out of the net. However, Yannick Bolasie's return may challenge the defender in his returning match.

February 26, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

McAuley (hamstring) is expected to be available Saturday against Crystal Palace, manager Tony Pulis said Friday.

McAuley has been a steady piece of the West Brom defense this season, and he looks poised to return to the starting XI after sitting out since Feb. 10. Palace have struggled to score of late, though their attack should be bolstered by the return of Yannick Bolasie.

February 12, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

McAuley will not play Saturday against Everton after suffering a hamstring injury during Wednesday's FA Cup match against Peterborough, manager Tony Pulis said Friday.

McAuley has been a consistent starter for the Baggies this season, and while their defensive record isn't quite as strong as many had hoped under Pulis, it could only get worse without one of their starting centerbacks. James Chester looks likely to take his place in the first XI.

January 24, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

McAuley had a team-leading nine clearances, four interceptions and four aerials won in the 0-0 draw to Aston Villa on Saturday.

West Brom defensive rearguard have been fairly solid fantasy performers throughout the season. They have tallied eight clean sheets and only one loss in the last five games. McAuley has one goal and with 2.6 aerials won average per game is a threat at every set piece. He also has merely one yellow card. He's getting another favorable matchup on Feb. 2 when the Baggies host Swansea.
