James Tomkins is a late fitness test for West Ham's match against Crystal Palace this weekend.
Tomkins is currently recovering from a hamstring injury and is questionable for the weekend. That leaves West Ham vulnerable at the back as fellow center-back James Collins is suspended for receiving a red card last match. Winston Reid is a lock to start this weekend and he has proven to be a fantastic fantasy choice even when he doesn't get a clean sheet. Aug 21 - 8:47 PM

Date:

James Tomkins will return to West Ham's squad to face Manchester City in the League Cup semi-final tomorrow.

Tomkins missed the last game with a one match ban for the red card he received against Cardiff City a week ago. He will provide much needed help for the Hammers' defense but is not a good fantasy option.

James Tomkins was sent off during West Ham's match against Cardiff for a second yellow and will serve a one match ban.

West Ham continue to shoot themselves in the foot by adding more and more suspensions to a squad decimated by injuries. The good news is that it's only a one match ban and Tomkins can return against Chelsea on the 29th. West Ham are looking to sign a new defender to help out the struggling squad so it's unknown if Tomkins' replacement will come from in house or from outside help.

James Tomkins is back in West Ham's squad after missing the first three games of 2014.

Tomkins has recovered from his groin injury and could feature tomorrow. Ricardo Vaz Te, Winston Reid, James Collins, and Joey O'Brien will all miss Saturday's clash due to injuries. Kevin Nolan is out with a suspension. It's likely the Hammers' defense will continue to struggle and Cardiff City could take advantage tomorrow.

West Ham United have signed central defender Roger Johnson on loan from Wolverhampton Wanderers for the remainder of the season.

With injuries plaguing the Hammers defensive core as of late, Johnson will allow Sam Allardyce to breathe a (short-lived) sigh of relief. Center backs James Tomkins, Winston Reid and James Collins are all recovering from injuries at the moment so it was important for them to acquire an experienced player to help prevent the goals from pouring in. The Hammers have conceded 30 goals in 20 games and currently find themselves in 19th place at the midway mark with 15 points. Johnson will have a relatively low fantasy price tag, but is a dicey option at best with games coming up against Newcastle and Chelsea.
Jan 6 - 4:44 PM

James Tomkins will not be fit to face Fulham on January first with a groin injury.

Tomkins is one of three West Ham defenders(James Collins and Winston Reid the other two) who won't be fit for the game so don't be surprised to see another shootout involving West Ham.

West Ham defender James Tomkins has been released on bail after being arrested outside of a nightclub in Brentwood.

Tomkins has been charged with assaulting a police officer, resisting arrest, and being drunk and disorderly in a public place. He will appear in court next month but there have been no news yet if West Ham will take any disciplinary action against Tomkins.

West Ham defender James Tomkins is expected to recover in time for this weekend's match against Aston Villa.

West Ham have been good defensively at home and Tomkins has been a decent fantasy contributor since getting the starting spot, but I don't want to bet anything against Christian Benteke. Benteke missed a penalty last week and is going to come into this game hungry for goals, so I would avoid Tomkins and the rest of the West Ham defense for this one.

David Gold, West Ham co-owner, insists James Tomkins is not for sale.

James Tomkins is a talented defender, but he hasn't played as much as James Collins and Winston Reid this year. He is only 24 years old and is still developing, so expect him to get more playing time as he improves.
