Brunt tallied an assist in Monday's 3-2 defeat to Everton.

Early in the second half, the defender put in a nice ball to Craig Dawson off a corner who headed it home to give the Baggies a comfortable looking 2-0 lead. The assist was Brunt's first of the season after picking up 10 in 34 Premier League matches last season. Part of that could be attributable to his long spell in the midfield last season, but is a good, probing fullback who occasionally shirks his defensive responsibilities in favor of pressing on the attack.

Brunt will have a late fitness test ahead of Saturday's match against Stoke City because of a hamstring injury.

Brunt is still considered a midfielder in many fantasy formats, but he plays mostly as a defender on the wing. Either way, his fantasy upside will be greatly reduced if he doesn't start.

Brunt grabbed his fourth assist of the season in Saturday's 2-2 draw against Crystal Palace.

Brunt's corner was headed home by Victor Anichebe in the 51st minute. The winger now has four assists on the season and next week's game against Leicester City represents a good chance for him to add to this.

Brunt overcame a groin injury to grab an assist in Monday's 2-2 draw with Manchester United.

Brunt played in striker Saido Berahino in the 66th minute who made no mistake with the finish. Brunt returned home early from international duty and only resumed training over the weekend. The winger now has three assists on the season and the weekend's clash with Crystal Palace presents a good chance to embellish that number.
