Yacob is averaging 3.7 tackles, 2.4 interceptions and 0.7 shots through seven league starts this season.

Yacob made a career-high 33 Premier League starts last season, and he should rival that total this year, as his defensive presence has been invaluable to the Baggies' run to the top half of the table. He rarely etches his name on the scoresheet, but he has become a useful fantasy option in formats that reward defensive stats and should continue as such Saturday versus Tottenham.

Claudio Yacob: Past News Updates   ( ▲ View most recent update )

February 14, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Yacob had four tackles, four clearances and four interceptions in the 1-0 away victory over Everton on Saturday.

A masterpiece defensive performance by Yacob in a crucial away shutout over a prolific Everton side. The defensive midfielder has been one of the few gems in a dull West Brom side this season, however, with no goals and merely one assist on the season, and playing a very defensive role in the Baggies' midfield, Yacob's fantasy upside is very limited.

December 28, 2015

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Yacob tallied one assist and took one shot in Monday's 1-0 win over Newcastle United.

Yacob is a key cog in the West Bromwich Albion midfield, but on the fantasy front, he's not much more than a blip on the radar. His defensive duties in the Baggies midfield hinder his ability to get forward and produce on the offensive side of the ball. The assist was a nice touch and came at a key moment in the match, but it was just his first ever since joining West Brom in 2012.

December 26, 2015

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Yacob is starting Saturday against Swansea City after returning from bereavement leave.

Yacob hasn't been a big fantasy contributor this season, so while his return is certainly a plus, there aren't likely many fantasy managers jumping at the opportunity to add him to their rosters.

December 23, 2015

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Yacob will be available for the Boxing Day match after returning from bereavement leave.

The Argentine will be available for the first time since November after leaving to attend to a personal matter, but his level of fitness will likely determine his availability for the match. Chris Brunt and Craig Gardner have seen additional playing time in Yacob's absence, but the 28-year-old is likely to feature if he is deemed fit ahead of Saturday's matchup.

December 13, 2015

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Yacob is unavailable Sunday against Liverpool as he is away on compassionate leave, manager Tony Pulis said before the match.

Yacob will be replaced in the starting lineup by Craig Gardner.

December 9, 2015

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Yacob served his one-game suspension and will be available for selection Sunday versus Liverpool.

He's one of the better player for the Baggies this season and will have a key role in defense against the Reds. However, he's not a fantasy factor and his return won't affect many rosters.

November 30, 2015

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Yacob is suspended for one game due to yellow card accumulation.

The Argentine picked up his fifth caution in a forgettable game for his standards. He'll miss the important home fixture with the Spurs, however, he won't figure to be sorely missed in fantasy land.
