Foster (ankle) is starting Saturday against West Ham.

Foster did not play Monday against Spurs due to the minor knock, but he'll slot back into the starting XI against a West Ham side that is very tough to shut out.

Foster did not play Monday against Spurs because of an ankle injury, according to manager Tony Pulis.

Boaz Myhill started in place of Foster, who could also miss Saturday's match against West Ham.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Foster made four saves in Thursday's 2-0 loss to Arsenal.

The Gunners were in total control of the game and cannonaded Foster heavily all game long. The keeper, though, could call himself fortunate with Arsenal being unable to keep half their chances on target. Foster has been a decent fantasy option, at times, but he's in a dreadful situation right now with his team losing three consecutive games and having to play Tottenham, West Ham and Liverpool in three of their last four fixtures.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Foster made three stops and let in one goal in Saturday's 1-0 loss to Watford.

He was a bit unlucky on Watford's goal, as Watson's flick was likely very hard to Foster to see as it veered to the far post. Since back into the team in January, Foster has four clean sheets in 11 starts. He hasn't looked bad at all, but with Arsenal, Spurs and West Ham to come, you'll want to avoid him for the time being.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Foster made two saves and conceded two goals in Saturday's 2-1 loss to Manchester City.

Foster was fairly sharp throughout, but had little chance on Aguero's penalty or on the series of deflections and caroms that led to Samir Nasri's goal. Since returning to the side 10 matches ago, Foster has been pretty strong, conceding fewer than two goals in seven of 10 matches while collecting 13 points over that stretch to likely keep them in the Premier League. After a visit from Watford next weekend, the schedule does the Baggies no favors, sending them to Arsenal and Spurs in back-to-back matches before a visit from West Ham.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Foster made no saves in Saturday's 1-0 home loss to Norwich.

The Baggies' defensive inconsistency this season is significantly affecting Foster's fantasy performance. He was untroubled for the most part of the game but a serious defensive lapse allowed Robbie Brady to notch the winner unbothered from close range. Foster's next fixture comes in a fortnight when the Baggies are visiting the fighting-for-survival Black Cats.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Foster stopped all seven shots he faced during Sunday's 1-0 win over Manchester United.

The usually reliable 'keeper had allowed multiple goals in each of his last three matches heading into Sunday, but he was able to answer the bell against a less than potent Red Devils lineup. Foster will ride the wave from this excellent performance into a tough away match versus Arsenal next week.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Foster made three saves and allowed a pair of goals in Tuesday's draw with Leicester.

West Brom were under siege for much of the match, and Foster was fortunate to see Jamie Vardy and Shinji Okazaki both drill the woodwork on close-range headers. Foster has now allowed multiple goals in each of the last three matches after starting off strong upon returning from injury, and he will look to right the ship versus Manchester United this weekend.
