Brunt is suspended for one game for yellow-card accumulation.

The Baggies put an outstanding defensive stand against the title contender - Arsenal but Brunt became a victim of that picking up his fifth yellow card of the season. He'll miss the important visit to the Hammers on Sunday. Gareth McAuley returns from suspension and will probably take his spot in the starting XI with one of the central defender shifted to the left. Another option is slotting the half back Craig Gardner at the left back instead of Brunt.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Brunt tallied an assist and was issued a yellow card in Saturday's 2-1 victory over Arsenal.

Brunt picked up his second assist of the season on a nice cross to James Morrison for the team's equalizing goal. He was also issued his fifth caution of the season, which should lead to a one-game suspension for the steady left back.

Brunt (groin) is starting Saturday against Arsenal.

Brunt was deemed fit Friday by manager Tony Pulis and he'll slot right into his regular starting spot, though it will likely be tough going against a very strong Gunners side.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Brunt (knock) is fit and ready to go for the big clash with Arsenal on Saturday, confirmed manager Tony Pulis in a press conference for the club official website.

He has been a decent fantasy option with the Baggies recording six clean sheets this season. However, the match up is a nightmare with the Gunners possessing one of the most prolific offenses in the league and scoring in each of the last six fixtures against West Brom.

Brunt (knock) is starting Saturday against Manchester United.

Brunt missed last weekend's match due to the ailment, but he'll slot right back into the starting lineup against a Manchester United attack that is very hot-and-cold this season.

Brunt got the start on Oct. 31 against Leicester City but was then substituted off in the 82nd minute with an undisclosed injury. However, he's expected to be ready for the upcoming match against Manchester United on Saturday.

Brunt has been seeing plenty of the pitch in the month of October, with four Premier League starts, plus he's also spent time playing for Northern Ireland in the month. Looking ahead, he'll most likely continue seeing time in both international and club play as he returns to full fitness.

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.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

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.
