Dawson headed one home on two shots (one on target) but also notched in an own goal and had three crosses on Monday's 1-1 draw to Tottenham.

Dawson was unfortunate to get the credit for the own goal as the ball just slid underneath him as he was trying to head it out of danger with a Spurs' player breathing right down his neck. He compensated, though, later in the game with a great effort for the equalizer that gave the Baggies a valuable point in a tough environment. That's his fourth goal of the season.

Dawson had two shots off target, four crosses and seven clearances in the Saturday's 1-0 home loss to Norwich.

He's been a decent fantasy option this season, typically being involved in the offense and having the ability to burst loads of crosses and key passes. He's also been a threat at set pieces, managing to score three goals.
