Lescott took home another clean sheet in Sunday's 4-0 win at home to Burnley.

Lescott impressed at centre back alongside Craig Dawson and has a 100 percent record in the clean sheet department since his debut last weekend at Tottenham. Fantasy managers can count on Lescott to earn clean sheets in almost all home games and a handful of away games, just so long as the injury problems stay away.

Lescott played his first 90 minutes as a West Brom player during Sunday's 1-0 win at Tottenham.

Lescott earned a clean sheet at the heart of manager Alan Irvine's defence after missing much of preseason through injury. The England capped defender is what the team has needed through the early weeks of the season that saw a worrying number of goals conceded. West Brom are a good bet to keep clean sheets when he is in the side and fantasy managers should consider him for this reason alone but take into account his injury problems at the same time.

Lescott (knee) is in contention for a comeback in Saturday’s game against Everton, reports the official club website.

A behind-closed-doors friendly against Hull City saw Lescott complete the 90 minutes, though manager Alan Irvine did caution “it is really important that we do not rush him because that could lead to a set-back”. West Brom have been haemorrhaging goals in the Premier League thus far and Lescott’s eventual debut will bring a much needed top level presence to the back four.

Lescott (knee) has been sent to the USA by manager Alan Irvine to regain his fitness over the international break, reports the official club website.

Lescott has yet to play a minute for West Bromwich Albion since moving on a free transfer in the summer and manager Irvine admitted “the plan is that he will come back from that absolutely ready to go and we can have him for the following week ready to train with the lads”. Once Lescott reaches full fitness he will slot straight into a defence that has already leaked five goals in its opening three games. Fantasy managers, meanwhile, should be very wary of his injury problems before considering him.

Lescott (knee) won’t make his debut this Saturday at Swansea City, manager Alan Irvine told the Birmingham Mail.

Lescott has almost overcome the knee injury that hampered preseason and manager Alan Irvine admitted that it is now a case of getting Lescott up-to-speed fitness wise over the international break. Lescott’s past injury problems mean that manager Irvine won’t rush him back into the side and fantasy owners should be very wary of how regularly Lescott picks up injuries before picking him.

Lescott (knee) is still out injured and the earliest he will start training with the squad is the end of this week, manager Alan Irvine told the club website.

Lescott won’t be rushed back by Albion after moving on a free transfer from Man City this summer. It’s almost certain he will get the nod as first choice at centre back once fit, though he has limited fantasy value thanks to West Brom’s low clean sheet total and Lescott’s decreasing goal and assist numbers in recent seasons.

Lescott (knee) is out for West Brom's Premier League opener against Sunderland.

Lescott injured his knee during a preseason friendly against Nottingham Forest and isn't back to fitness. It is not expected to be a long-term concern, but he does not have a clear timetable for return yet.

Lescott injured his knee during West Brom's friendly against Nottingham Forest, Goal reports.

Lescott should be a late fitness test for West Brom's EPL opener against Sunderland on Aug. 16. While the injury seems minor, the team may want to hold him out to ensure he's healthy for the long haul of the season.
