Ryan Shawcross has been a standout for Stoke City and fantasy managers alike and his excellence continued in the Week 6 clean sheet win over Newcastle.
Ryan Shawcross's name was linked with a return to the club he came up with, Manchester United, a number of years ago but since that infatuation faded (if it was ever there) he has faded from the collective consciousness somewhat. A pillar at Stoke City since 2008, it is easy to forget about him. With the advent of statistics that describe central defending play, Shawcross has started to re-emerge for fans and fantasy managers. In the Yahoo format he is averaging just over 10 points/match this season on performances like the one he put in on Monday. Three blocked shots, two interceptions and a tackle won leading to a clean sheet is a lot of fantasy goodness in almost any format. Expect his solidity to continue. Oct 1 - 5:23 PM
