Winston Reid has struggled to earn his spot back in West Ham's starting lineup because his replacements James Collins and James Tomkins have played spectacularly in his absence.
West Ham have won their last three games and the contributions from James Collins and James Tomkins have been great. The center-backs have developed a partnership and the Hammers lead the league in clean sheets. Manager Sam Allardyce is reluctant to change what works and it seems Reid will have to ride the bench until something changes. If Reid gets his spot back, he will be a great differential player in fantasy. Feb 14 - 6:42 PM

Winston Reid came off the bench in West Ham's last game after a prolonged absence due to injury.

Reid will probably be fit enough to start this weekend and is one of the better fantasy defenders available. He comes at a decent price after being out for long time and I would recommend him as a long term pick. West Ham are one of the better defensive teams and the clean sheet points combined with his defensive stats combine for a winning formula.

Winston Red hopes to return to full training in about a week.

Reid has missed about a dozen Premier League games since he first went down with the ankle injury but seems to be very close to returning to the pitch. I wouldn't consider him a fantasy option for the Chelsea game but Reid could be a very good fantasy contributor after he returns to full fitness. He has shown time and time again that he can produce even without getting clean sheets.

Influential West Ham defender, Winston Reid, is recovering well from a high ankle sprain the required surgery. However, he is still more than a month from returning to fitness.

There hasn't been much of a pattern to West Ham United's results since Reid went down. They will keep some games tight, get blown away when facing a bigger team, and even get a big result against fellow strugglers. Getting Reid back will be a boon to a strapped Hammers side.

Winston Reid's ankle injury is more serious than first thought and the influential defender may well be out until next year.

West Ham may well have missed Reid in the 3-1 defeat at Norwich, but they will certainly miss him going forward. The Hammers were fortunate that James Collins returned from his own injury when he did.

Winston Reid has picked up an ankle injury and will not be fit for Saturday's game against Norwich City nor New Zealand's World Cup playoff game.

It's unfortunate for Reid to pick up the injury now as this is a huge game for his home country. West Ham will hope he can return after the international break as he's been one of their most consistent players and has helped them in being one of the best Premier League defenses. James Collins will most likely start in his place Saturday.

Arsenal are interested in acquiring West Ham defender Winston Reid during the January transfer window.

Winston Reid has been one of the Hammers' best players and won West Ham's Player of the Season award last season. Arsenal are looking for reinforcements in the back since they seem to be title contender this season and Thomas Vermaelen has fallen out of favour with Arsene Wenger. Other teams are reportedly also interested in Reid but the defender wants to remain in London.

West Ham stunned Tottenham at White Hart Lane with a 3-0 away win.

West Ham have struggled to score this year but that wasn't the case as Winston Reid, Ricardo Vaz Te, and Ravel Morrison all scored to stun Tottenham. Many fantasy managers were hoping for a Spurs clean sheet today and many will be disappointed with the result. Spurs need to win at home if they want to challenge for the title and certainly can't allow three goals from teams like West Ham. They drop to sixth place while West Ham go up to 13th with a valuable three points from today.

West Ham are interested in Italian defender Massimo Ambrosini, who no longer has a contract at AC Milan.

The AC Milan defender is past him prime at 36 years of age, and it's unknown how well he can do in the fast paced English game. Ambrosini was a top notch defender, but 36 years are a lot in football. If they can get him on a small salary, he may be able to contribute with some experience.

West Ham have targeted Barcelona defender Marc Bartra.

West Ham didn't have the best of seasons defensively but Winston Reid and James Collins had fairly solid seasons at centre-back. Even with that, West Ham boss Sam Allardyce has been targeting a few centre-backs this summer. The newest rumors involve Barcelona defender Marc Bartra who is on the loan market because Barcelona feel he can use more experience.
