Delaney (suspension) won't play this Saturday against West Brom.

Delaney (suspension) was given his marching orders in the first half of last week's 2-1 defeat against Chelsea after picking up two yellow cards. Delaney and central defensive partner Scott Dann (knee) are both out and it will be down to Brede Hangeland and Adrian Mariappa to fill the void.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Delaney was given his marching orders in the 43rd minute in Saturday's 2-1 defeat to Chelsea.

Delaney needlessly brought down Chelsea forward Loic Remy for a second yellow card that evened up the numbers. The centre back's first yellow came after he argued back with the referee following an earlier foul and he is now out of next week's match at West Bromwich Albion.

Delaney kept a clean sheet in Saturday's 2-0 win over Leicester.

Delaney has made a big difference since returning to the team to partner Scott Dann in the centre of the Crystal Palace defence and looks a good bet to record a clean sheet in most home games.

Delaney picked up his first clean sheet of the campaign in Saturday's stalemate with Burnley.

Delaney performed well throughout alongside central defensive partner Scott Dann and also looked a threat to score from corners.

Delaney started his first game of the season in Saturday’s 3-1 defeat to West Ham United.

Delaney was called into the side by caretaker manager Keith Millen to replace injured Scott Dann (quad). Delaney is a backup to both Dann and Brede Hangeland, with the latter’s back problems likely to mean Delaney will be used often, which could come with a number of clean sheets.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Delaney should get his first start of the season this Saturday against West Ham.

Delaney is likely to deputise for Scott Dann after caretaker manager Keith Millen admitted he only has an “outside chance” of being fit for Saturday’s game. Delaney played in all but one of Palace’s games last season and West Ham represents an opportunity for a first clean sheet of the season

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Delaney came on for Scott Dann in the 75th minute of Crystal Palace's 2-1 loss to Arsenal on Saturday.

Delaney had picked up a knock during Palace's preseason tour of the United States, but his appearance Saturday appears to show that he's gotten beyond it. Dann actually suffered his own knock during the match, and Delaney could be in the starting XI next Saturday against West Ham.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Delaney is being evaluated by club staff for an knock he picked up during Crystal Palace's United States Pre-Season tour, reports the Croydon Advertiser. Delaney limped off the field after last Saturday's tune up match against Brentford, but has assured fans the injury is minor and plans to participate in the August 9 friendly against FC Augsburg.

Delaney is not much of a threat on the attack and will depend on Crystal Palace to keep clean sheets to earn any fantasy value.
