McAuley returned from an ankle injury to start and play all 90 minutes of West Brom's 3-3 draw with Cardiff City on Saturday.

McAuley's fantasy value is mostly derived from the Baggies' ability to shutout their opponents, something they've failed to do in their last 10 matches.

McAuley, who picked up an ankle injury in last weekend's match against Hull City, has been deemed fit for Saturday's match against Cardiff City, the club's official web site reports.

The Baggies' defense has struggled mightily this season, and McAuley hasn't been a part of a clean sheet since a 1-0 win over Newcastle on New Year's Day. Despite the poor record, a matchup against Cardiff could break the streak.

McAuley scored to seal a 2-0 West Brom win over Everton on Saturday.

The Northern Ireland international can pile some goals in from the back line. He's good in the air, but he also has that sneaky ability to find open spaces on set pieces and put a foot on the ball for a goal or two a year as well.

McAuley was able to redirect a shot past Petr Cech and handed West Brom all three points with its 1-0 victory over Chelsea.

Not only did the victory lift West Brom up to tenth in the table, but it condemned Chelsea to its poor form and sacking its manager, Andre Villas-boas.
