McAuley will not play Saturday against Everton after suffering a hamstring injury during Wednesday's FA Cup match against Peterborough, manager Tony Pulis said Friday.

McAuley has been a consistent starter for the Baggies this season, and while their defensive record isn't quite as strong as many had hoped under Pulis, it could only get worse without one of their starting centerbacks. James Chester looks likely to take his place in the first XI.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

McAuley had a team-leading nine clearances, four interceptions and four aerials won 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 and only one loss in the last five games. McAuley has one goal and with 2.6 aerials won average per game is a threat at every set piece. He also has merely one yellow card. He's getting another favorable matchup on Feb. 2 when the Baggies host Swansea.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

McAuley scored West Bromwich Albion's only goal in a 2-1 loss to Bournemouth on Saturday.

McAuley found himself on the receiving end of Craig Gardner's corner and made no mistake with a beautifully placed glancing header for his first of the season. Although the goal was nice, the Northern Irishman shouldn't be looked upon to produce on the fantasy front. His side has only won once in their last six matches and have failed to keep a clean sheet since a 1-0 victory over Norwich City back in October.

McAuley served his suspension and will be available for selection Sunday versus West Ham.

The Northern Irish will be right back in the center of the defense for the tough visit to the Hammers. With Chris Brunt now suspended and the lack of another true left back, probably, Jonas Olsson or Jonny Evans will be shifted to the left side or Craig Gardner will be moved back in defense.

McAuley (calf) is starting Saturday against Crystal Palace.

Palace have been shut out in three straight Premier League games, but they're still a dangerous attack, making McAuley a bit of a fantasy gamble.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

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

McAuley was unable to play this past Monday due to the ailment, and with an inability to train, it looks like he could wait until after the international break to return.

McAuley (calf) is starting Saturday against Watford.

McAuley missed the opener Monday against Man City due to the ailment, but he'll slot right back into the starting lineup Saturday against the newly promoted outfit that scored twice against Everton at Goodison Park last weekend.
