Foster stopped three of four shots faced in Tuesday's 1-1 draw with West Brom.

The veteran missed the first 22 matches of the season due to injury, but he has been excellent since returning, allowing just one goal on seven shots againstin two Premier League matches. Foster was a strong fantasy 'keeper last season, and his return should provide a boost to a West Brom back line that already ranked inside the top-10 in the league. He should be between the posts once again this weekend versus Newcastle.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Foster registered four saves en route to a clean sheet in his Premier League season debut in the 0-0 draw to Aston Villa on Saturday.

Foster picked up where he left off last season. The Villans controlled the game and were pushing hard for the win but the keeper denied every thought for it helping his team grab a valuable point in a really tough moment of the season. Foster's fine form right off the bat will probably mean the end of a nice run by Boaz Myhill, who would be relegated to a Premier League backup. If Foster retains the starting job he'll have a golden opportunity to back up his work against another bottom-three offense in Swansea.

Foster could return for Saturday's FA Cup match versus Bristol City after recovering from a knee injury.

The 32-year-old has not played this season after undergoing surgery to repair a damaged ACL last March, but he played 45 minutes for the West Brom Under-21s on Tuesday before participating in a training session. Manager Tony Pulis indicated that he "could be involved" in Saturday's match, indicating that he will likely require one final assessment before being given the green light. Foster should immediately step back into the No. 1 role ahead of Boaz Myhill once he is deemed fit.
