West Brom struggled defensively, but McAuley scored a late goal off a corner in Saturday's 2-1 loss at Liverpool. He finished with six aerials won and three successful tackles.

Clean sheets will continue to be rare for the West Brom back line, but McAuley at least has value when charging forward for corners.

Gareth McAuley: Past News Updates   ( ▲ View most recent update )

August 28, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

McAuley kept a clean sheet in Sunday's scoreless draw with Middlesbrough.

Paired back with his Northern Irish battery mate, Jonny Evans, who had been playing left back, the 36-year-old didn't have a particularly busy afternoon, keeping the Middlesbrough front-four at arms length and letting just two shots to reach the cage. McAuley will look for his third clean sheet in four matches after the international break when they travel to Bournemouth.

August 20, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

McAuley had one goal, on two shots, two tackles and five clearances in Saturday’s 2-1 loss against Everton.

McAuley’s goal came early in the match when his header found a wide open net as teammate Saido Berahino and Everton goal keeper, Maarten Stekelenburg, got tangled up on the corner. McAuley has scored one goal in each of the last two seasons and only recorded seven shots last season. McAuley’s next league match is Sunday against Middlesbrough.

August 13, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

McAuley had eight clearances and a tackle in Saturday's 1-0 win over Crystal Palace.

McAuley continued to show the form he played with last season and at Euro 2016. A true Tony Pulis player, McAuley, like Jonny Evans, is a very strong fantasy option in the defense.

June 27, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

McAuley started all four games for Northern Ireland in Euro 2016, recording one goal on three shots (two on target), one own goal, one clean sheet, three tackles and four fouls. He takes his international record to eight goals in 65 caps. N. Ireland lost 1-0 to Wales on Saturday with McAuley's own goal and were knocked out of the tournament at the round of 16.

McAuley had a solid campaign with West Brom last season. The 36-year-old center back was reliable, though, not very productive fantasy player. He finished the season with one goal, one own goal, 10 clean sheets, 46 tackles and four yellow and one red cards in 34 Premier League starts.

June 25, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

McAuley knocked in the only goal of Northern Ireland's 1-0 loss to Wales. It was a lose-lose situation as the ball was likely to go in if McAuley touched it or not. He didn't have too much work on the day, finishing with three aerials won.

It was an unfortunate ending to McAuley's tournament as he eventually was subbed out for a forward shortly after the own goal. McAuley was at the head of the Northern Ireland defense that allowed just three goals in four games.

June 16, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

McAuley landed two shots on target, scored the opening goal and helped keep a clean sheet during a Man of the Match performance in Thursday's 2-0 win over the Ukraine.

The veteran defender sprung up to nod home the most important goal in his nation's history in the 49th minute, as the defense tightened the screws to preserve Northern Ireland's first ever Euro victory. McAuley and company have allowed just one goal through two games, but they will face a tough test Tuesday as they try to secure a place in the next round versus Germany.

March 6, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

McAuley secured two interceptions and won a tackle during Sunday's 1-0 win over Manchester United.

The 36-year-old put in a solid shift as the Baggies recorded a big win, but he still made a relatively small fantasy impact. McAuley is more valuable to his team in real life than he is to fantasy owners, and this should remain the case versus Arsenal next week.
