Anichebe, who has missed the last few games with a hamstring injury, was available off the bench for Saturday's match at Norwich City, although he did not make an appearance.

Anichebe has three goals and three assists this season, most of which have come in 2014. That being said, he remains a relatively weak fantasy option given the struggles of the West Brom attack overall.
