Lambert signed a two-year contract with West Brom on Friday after transferring from Liverpool.

Lambert found playing time very hard to come by in his only season with Liverpool, and with the arrivals of Danny Ings and Christian Benteke, the outlook was even bleaker. He'll get plenty of first-team opportunities with the Baggies, particularly if Saido Berahino is sold.

West Brom is about to open transfer discussions with Lambert's representatives this week, reports the Daily Mail.

West Brom and Liverpool would still need to arrive at a transfer fee, but Liverpool has said they would not block a move if Lambert wanted to leave. West Brom is reportedly ready to offer around 3 million to secure the transfer.

Lambert tallied two goals and two assists on 25 Premier League outings during his first season with Liverpool.

Lambert's 25 appearances is a bit deceiving since he was often used as a substitute and only saw a total of 824 minutes on the pitch. His previous two seasons at Southampton resulted in a total of 28 goals, although manager Brendan Rodgers used him at a far lesser rate at Anfield and that's to be expected ahead of next season as well.

Lambert made his second-straight start against Chelsea on Sunday but only managed to accrue a yellow card during his time on the pitch.

Lambert spent the majority of his season on the bench but has been given a second opportunity over the final stretch of the season as a starter. That said, he only played for 68 minutes Sunday and will likely struggle to produce if he's featured yet again Saturday when Liverpool faces Crystal Palace.

Lambert got the rare start against QPR on Saturday and helped out with an assist while taking four shots during his full 90 on the pitch, two of which were on goal.

This was the first time Lambert was placed in the starting XI in a Premier League match since Dec. 6. His value has plummeted since that time but may be on the up swing if manager Brendan Rodgers keeps him in the rotation over the final three matches of the season.

Lambert is starting Saturday against QPR.

Despite star striker Daniel Sturridge missing most of the season with various injuries, Lambert has been unable to crack the starting XI, playing behind either Mario Balotelli or Raheem Sterling when he's moved up from the midfield. However, the matchup against QPR is a very solid one from a fantasy perspective, and Lambert could make for a decent value play in many salary-cap formats.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Lambert was an unused substitute in Sunday's match against Manchester United.

Lambert hasn't seen time on the pitch since Mar. 4 and even then he was subbed onto the pitch for limited minutes. As a result, the 33-year-old is better left untouched until he finds a way to get back into the action under the direction of manager Brendan Rodgers.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Lambert has two goals over 19 Premier League appearances for Liverpool this season.

Lambert has been relegated to a role off the bench of late and is not seeing significant time on the pitch. Unless manager Brendan Rodgers has a change of heart, Lambert will likely spend the majority of his time on the bench moving forward.
