Chester started all six matches for Wales during Euro 2016, tallying three shots off target, six dribbles, 17 tackles and two yellow cards on five fouls. He takes his international record to 17 caps and no goals. Wales' fantastic run in the tournament ended in the semifinals after a 2-0 defeat by Portugal.

Chester found playing time hard to come by with West Brom last season. The 27-year-old versatile defender was unable to bring much fantasy value off the bench finishing the season with no goals or assists in 13 Premier League appearances (nine starts).

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Chester and the Wales back line held Northern Ireland scoreless in Saturday's 1-0 win. Chester was great in the win, finishing with seven tackles and second on the team in terms of possession with 6.7 percent.

That's the second straight clean sheet for the Wales back line, but getting a third will be a bit difficult, especially if Belgium takes down Hungary on Sunday.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Chester won two tackles, made four interceptions and helped keep a clean sheet during Monday's 3-0 victory over Russia.

Chester was excellent as a member of Wales' back three Monday, making several crucial interventions and helping limit the opposition to just two shots on target. Chester helped the debutantes to the top spot in Group B on just three goals allowed through three matches, and he should be in the lineup once again as they begin the knockout phase Saturday versus the third-place side from Group A, C or D.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Chester won four tackles, snared an interception and blocked a shot during Sunday's 1-0 win over Manchester United.

Chester has now started six of the last seven matches, helping the club to four wins and a pair of shutouts in that span, but his lack of involvement on the offensive limits his fantasy appeal. The Baggies will take on Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium next week.

February 28, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Chester had four tackles, four clearances and a yellow card in 47 minutes off the bench in the Saturday's 3-2 victory over Crystal Palace.

Chester was introduced in place of injured Chris Brunt but didn't impress. With some injuries mounting across the Baggies defensive line he finally got his chance for a more significant role with the team this season and unless Jonny Evans returns from his injury the former may be up for another start on Tuesday against the Foxes. Even if he starts ,though, he hasn't showed a lot of fantasy potential.

February 14, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Chester had eight clearances, two tackles, two interceptions and a clean sheet in the 1-0 victory over Everton on Saturday.

The Baggies fended off 33 shots (two off the post), 14 corners and picked up a priceless win despite only 27 percent possession. Chester was fairly quiet in his third consecutive start across all competitions and second straight in Premier League and he will probably go back to the bench with the return of Chris Brunt. With only five league appearances (three starts) on the season, Chester's fantasy value is very limited off the bench.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Chester is expected to move to West Brom on an 8 million transfer, the BBC reports.

Chester has one year left on his deal with Hull and was widely expected to find a new club after the Tigers were relegated last season. He's a former Manchester United trainee and could be a decent fantasy option under manager Tony Pulis, if he can grab a starting spot.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Chester has been deemed fit to face Swansea City on Saturday after recovering from a shoulder injury.

Chester was a regular starter for the Tigers before suffering the injury Jan. 18 against West Ham, and while he may not be inserted right back after the long layoff, it's only a matter of time. Unfortunately, Hull City aren't much of a defensive unit, leaving little available clean sheet points for Chester, who has two goals in 16 appearances this season.
