Consider which West Bromwich Albion players could be suitable for your FPL team this season.

As well as budget choices, our scout is investigating all possible selections from each squad in the 2020-21 Fantasy Premier League.

West Brom FPL players

Let’s take a closer look at West Brom’s FPL team and make some recommendations.

🥅 Goalkeepers

Sam Johnstone doesn’t look like the best £4.5m option as things stand, so avoid for now.

👬 Defenders

Semi Ajayi scored five goals from centre-back last season, but at £5m we’re not tempted when there are so many good £4.5m options elsewhere.

🏃 Midfielders

£6m Matheus Pereira is the one to watch after he racked up eight goals and sixteen assists in last season’s Championship.

All in all, he seems like the only West Brom player worth considering.

Welcome back to £5.5m Matt Phillips, who’s been a great fantasy football pick in the past – but probably not anymore.

🥳 Forwards

Welcome back also to £5.5m Charlie Austin, but his total of eleven goals in the Championship last season don’t suggest a prolific campaign ahead.

The similarly priced Hal Robson-Kanu has never really been a goal-scorer, so don’t look to the Baggies for a striker.
