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.

While Manchester City's defense hasn't been a tight as it was early in the season, a home match against Bournemouth puts Aleksandar Kolarov at the top of the defender rankings.

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.

Chester (shoulder) has returned to training and is hopeful to return to league action when Hull City play Swansea City after the international break, reports the Hull Daily Mail. He has missed the Tigers' last eight matches after suffering a dislocated shoulder in January.

Chester currently leads Hull City defenders with two goals this season. Much of his fantasy value comes from keeping clean sheets and Hull City's remaining schedule does not provide much opportunity for that the rest of the season.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Chester was forced off early during Sunday's loss to West Ham United after his dislocated his shoulder, reports the Hull Daily Mail. It is likely the injury will require surgery and force Chester to miss two to three months.

The injury will force Chester to miss significant time but does not have much fantasy impact as the Hull City defenders do not offer many clean sheet opportunities. Chester does have two goals on the season but his low shot totals do not offer much confidence on him being able to add to that total.

Chester is expected to return to Hull City's lineup for Saturday's match at West Bromwich Albion, reports the Hull Daily Mail.

Chester will likely be slotted back into Hull City's Starting XI, but it will be tough for him to have much fantasy value as the Tigers have kept just two away clean sheets all season.

Chester picked up a yellow card at the end of the first half, but responded in the second half by scoring what wound up being the match winner in Friday's 1-3 victory.

The yellow card was Chester's fifth this season and earned the defender a suspension for Hull City's next match. He is due to return for a home match against Everton on New Year's Day.

Chester played the full 90 minutes in Saturday's 3-0 loss to Manchester United.

The Hull City defense has struggled lately and will face another tough match in Tuesday's midweek game at Everton.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Chester is eligible to return to Hull City's lineup for Monday's match against West Ham United after serving his one-match suspension for receiving a red card, reports The Daily Mail.

Chester is expected to return to the lineup now that he has served his suspension. After scoring a goal on two shot attempts in the team's first match, he was a sleeper pick the next week before picking up the red card. While the low number of goals expected from Chester this season make it difficult to predict when they will happen, he will certainly be a fixture in the Hull City Starting XI and can be a valuable fantasy option when the match ups dictate a good chance for a clean sheet.
