It appears that Alan Irvine may have changed Saido Berahino's role to "late-match change of pace" after dropping the forward from the starting line-up for two consecutive weeks.
West Brom isn't enough of an attacking force that you'd think they could afford to rotate their leading goal-scorer on a regular basis but that is what Alan Irvine has done over Week 15 and Week 16. After starting Berahino consistently from Week 1 through Week 14, Irvine decided to try a different approach with a player who hadn't scored since the end of October. While bringing Berahino on late didn't directly create a goal, it certainly changed up the attacking mix and a goal and a win did come within a few minutes of the player being introduced. Fantasy managers should be aware that the arrangement could continue which would have an impact on Berahino's opportunity to collect phantom points over the course of an entire match. Dec 17 - 3:32 PM
