Fantasy Picks: Billy Jones (West Bromwich Albion) 0

Up until last week, and the 4-1 battering at Anfield, West Brom had an exceptional defensive record in the league - they had conceded just 6 times in 8 games.

On the basis that many other teams will also be picked apart by Luis Suarez and Daniel Sturridge, the performance seven days ago can probably be treated as an anomaly and it shouldn’t have too many lasting effects.

West Brom have a squad full of players who are undervalued on fantasy football - Stephane Sessegnon, Morgan Amalfitano, Claudio Yacob - but have a look at the £5m the game is asking for Billy Jones.

Jones is not a particularly progressive full-back, and he doesn’t spend games slinging cross-after-cross into the penalty-box, and so will never be a particularly good source of assist points - but that’s not a problem, because he’s part of a very capable defensive unit and for that price you can live with assist points alone.

…and West Brom are playing Palace today.
