Ward tallied an assist in Friday's 1-1 draw with Everton.

The rated fullback takes his defensive responsibilities considerably more seriously than he does moving forward, having scored just four goals and adding eight assists in 152 matches for Palace; however, on Friday he was ruthless up the right flank and provided the final ball to Christian Benteke to equalize and secure a point for Palace. In their last five matches, they've collected 11 points after dropping their first two to take them out of the basement and into the pack of the Premier League.

Joel Ward: Past News Updates   ( ▲ View most recent update )

April 19, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Ward (knock) will not play Wednesday against Manchester United, but he is expected to be available for Sunday's FA Cup semifinal against Watford.

Ward's absence will likely allow Martin Kelly to get a rare start.

April 10, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Ward tallied an assist, clean sheet, two crosses and five clearances in Saturday's 1-0 win over Norwich.

A very gentle and precise pass, from Ward, between two Norwich defenders sent the ball on Jason Puncheon's run to the middle which ended with a fantastic shot for the game-winner. The former wasn't as active offensively but his solid defensive effort helped his team snatch a rare clean sheet. That's his first assist of the season and with only two goals in 25 Premier League games he's one of the least appealing fantasy options from the Crystal Palace defense.

October 31, 2015

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Ward (knock) is starting Saturday against Manchester United.

Ward recently returned from a knee injury, but he'll be thrust into the starting lineup, with Pape Souare unable to play because of his own knock, leaving Martin Kelly in the first XI as well.

October 30, 2015

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Ward (knock) is questionable for Saturday's match against Manchester United.

Ward missed time with a knee issue recently, and while he was able to make a substitute appearance during the Eagles' mid-week Capital One Cup match against Manchester City, he may not be strong enough to supplant Martin Kelly in the starting XI on Saturday.

October 24, 2015

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Ward (knee) is not in the 18-man squad to face Leicester City on Saturday.

Ward returned to training this week but apparently is still working on his match fitness, which is why he is out Saturday. Martin Kelly will continue to start in Ward's absence.

October 22, 2015

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Ward (knee) returned to training Tuesday and could feature Saturday against Leicester City, the Croydon Advertiser reports.

Assistant manager Keith Millen said Ward is recovered from his injury but is still working on his match fitness, which could keep him from starting against the Foxes. If he's on the bench, Martin Kelly will likely continue to start, though it's a tough fantasy matchup.

October 14, 2015

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Ward (knee) is doubtful for Saturday's match against West Ham, the South London Press reports.

Ward has been out since the second week of September after suffering the injury in training, and while he's unlikely to play Saturday, he may be able to return for Palace's next match, which will come Oct. 25 at Leicester City.
