Olsson had a team-leading three blocked shots, six clearances and three interceptions 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 with only one loss in the last five games. Olsson isn't a regular starter but he's always the next man up when somebody from the defense falls down. He has one goal and three yellow cards and with a solid keeper behind his back and with a favorable matchup he could be a decent and cheap fantasy option if called upon duty.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Olsson (hamstring) is starting Saturday against Southampton.

Olsson's fantasy value is a bit limited given that he's a centerback of a squad that hasn't played particularly well of late, though a Tony Pulis defense always has to be considered.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Olsson is being monitored ahead of Saturday's match versus Southampton after recently returning from a hamstring injury.

The center-half returned from a two-week absence on Wednesday against Chelsea, and he was able to play 90 minutes in the draw. As such, Olsson appears set to start once again versus the Saints, although he will likely need to pass a late fitness test.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Olsson came off in the 16th minute of Monday's match against West Brom due to injury, according to the Newcastle Chronicle.

Olsson has been a consistent starter for the Baggies, and while the clean sheets haven't been that plentiful, he has been active on set pieces recently. Craig Gardner replaced him Monday but is unlikely to be the long-term substitute if Olsson has to miss additional time.

Olsson scored a goal off his lone shot also adding team-leading 10 clearances and two blocked shots in the brave 2-2 draw with Liverpool on Sunday.

The Swedish made a beautiful header for his first goal of the season meeting a Chris Bruntís corner. He connected with Brunt once more before that but the goal was disallowed for offside. That was Olssonís best game of the season but donít get too excited about him since he may be going back to the bench with the return of Claudio Yacob.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Olsson (groin) is unlikely to play Saturday against Crystal Palace, the Birmingham Mail reports.

Olsson picked up the injury Monday against Everton and hasn't been able to train this week, making him a long shot to play. While Crystal Palace have struggled a bit recently, they are still capable of scoring in bunches, making Olsson less than a top-tier fantasy option this week anyway.
