Tottenham's Ben Davies put in his best fantasy performance of the season in Week 15.
In all honestly Spurs were lucky to walk away from the Crystal Palace match with a point, but it was worth noting the performance of Ben Davies. The ex-Swansea full-back was a fantasy favourite last season but had struggled to break in to Maurico Pochettino's first team since signing on at White Hart Lane in the summer. An injury to Danny Rose has opened the door and Davies has been playing well, getting forward and returning 16 points in Week 15 from crosses, tackles and the clean sheet. We'll be monitoring the Welshman's displays and fantasy returns over the coming weeks. Dec 9 - 11:19 AM

Wales full-back Ben Davies admits he is "frustrated" by his lack of Premier League starts since joining Tottenham from Swansea in the summer.

After a fee of approximately £10million was paid, it was widely believed that Ben Davies had been brought in to become Tottenham's new first-choice left back, but the 21-year-old has found his opportunities limited so far. Danny Rose - who signed a new five-year deal just weeks after Davies arrived - has been preferred by Mauricio Pochettino and has been performing well in the league, so Davies will need to make the most of his Europa League and Capital One Cup appearances to have any chance of breaking in to the Premier League starting line-up.

Ben Davies hopes international outings for Wales will help him to secure a regular first team role at Tottenham.

After a fee of approximately £10million was paid, it was widely believed that Ben Davies had been brought in to become Tottenham's new first-choice left back, but the 21-year-old has found his opportunities limited so far. Danny Rose - who signed a new five-year deal just weeks after Davies arrived - has been preferred by Mauricio Pochettino and has been performing well in the league, so it may take more than a couple of international appearances to change his manager's mind.

Ben Davies and Michel Vorm have both completely their moves from Swansea City to Tottenham Hotspur today according to the Spurs official Twitter feed.

Both moves have been in the press as being essentially done deals for over a week but today brings official word that Spurs have a new left back in Ben Davies and a new goalkeeper in Michel Vorm. Based on his form two seasons ago, the notion of Vorm accepting a back-up role to Hugo Lloris would be odd but after a disappointing season that was also marred by injury and the arrival of Lukasz Fabianski, he was surplus to requirements. Davies will be the presumed starter ahead of Danny Rose who has been rumored to be on the move himself. No word as to whether Gylfi Sigurdsson will be moving in the opposite direction.

Tottenham are closing in on the signing of Swansea left-back Ben Davies, according to Sky sources.

This story has been running for the past month with both Tottenham and Liverpool interested in the Swansea defender, but Sky Sports are now reporting that he's on the verge of a move to White Hart Lane. Left-back was a problem for Spurs last season, with Benoit Assou-Ekotto loaned out to QPR, Jan Vertonghen unhappy to cover in that position and Danny Rose not of the required quality to feature for a team with top four aspirations. Davies is a solid defender, comfortable going forward and would represent an upgrade on current options, making him an ideal first signing for Mauricio Pochettino.

Tottenham Hotspur have expressed an interest in Swansea City defender Ben Davies.

Left-back was a problem position for Spurs last season, with Benoit Assou-Ekotto loaned out to QPR, Jan Vertonghen unhappy to cover in that position and Danny Rose not of the required quality to feature for a team with top four aspirations. Swansea's Davies is a solid defender, comfortable going forward and would represent an upgrade on current options. Reports suggest the 21-year-old Wales international could become Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino's first signing.

Ben Davies, who was held out of last weekend's league match with Liverpool, returned to the Swans XI last night in their loss to Napoli and came out healthy, making him available for selection against Crystal Palace on Sunday.

Davies availability gives Swansea a rare full compliment of defenders to choose from as they prepare for a contest they feel they can take three points from. Fantasy managers looking for a clean sheet could do worse than to back a Swan this weekend, with Michel Vorm looking the most appealing option from a financial position.

Ben Davies did not make the squad for Swansea City's trip to Anfield this past weekend because of a minor calf injury.

Neil Taylor started in his place and will continue to do so should Davies not be passed fit for the Swans upcoming match with Crystal Palace. Davies has severely cooled off in fantasy terms after prosperous beginnings due to his attacking abilities. However, a home match with the Eagles presents a potential clean sheet opportunity, so monitor Davies status heading toward the deadline. Should he be ruled out, Taylor would make for a nice budget spot start.

Ben Davies has recovered from the ankle injury he sustained when Swansea City defeated Sunderland last month, and is available for selection in Thursday's Europa match with Kuban Krasnador.

If all goes well for the left back on Thursday, he is immediately thrust into the selection picture for fantasy managers this weekend as Swansea get set to host Stoke City. He's been a great prospect when available this season, averaging over 10 points per appearance. Neil Taylor is no longer an option.

Updating a report earlier in the week, Swansea City fullback Ben Davies will be sidelined for three to four weeks due to an ankle injury, according to the club's offical website.

Scoop up Davies' all but guaranteed replacement Neil Taylor and use as a start or stash while Davies is out. Taylor is no slouch at the position, having held down the left back role before, and at a price of 3.45m, is simply too cheap to not use at least as a bench option with Swansea's nice run of fixtures on deck.

In his first action since recovering from a hamstring injury, Swansea left back Ben Davies suffered an ankle injury that manager Michael Laudrup feels will cause him to "probably miss our next two games at least."

It only took 50 minutes of pitch time to bridge one injury to another, an unfortunate circumstance for Davies. Neil Taylor had been his replacement during Davies' previous absence and will likely continue to do so. Swansea has one of the easiest schedules over the next several gameweeks, and Davies' opportunity to rack up fantasy points in that stretch are looking bleak.

In Michael Laudrup's press conference for Swansea City's upcoming match against Sunderland, the manager admitted that defender Ben Davies remains a doubt and will be assessed once more before deciding on his availability.

Laudrup also confirmed that Pablo Hernandez and Jonathan De Guzman are also available again for selection, and that Ashley Williams is ruled out as expected. The minor hand injury Michel Vorm sustained in international duty will not keep him out of action. The lack of certainty regarding Davies is frustrating for fantasy managers as he has a plus matchup and has been a consistent points scorer. Unless you have a viable bench replacement, he cannot be recommended at this point.

Ben Davies will have a scan today on what is believed to be a hamstring injury suffered near the end of Swansea's 2-0 defeat at Southampton, and could keep the fullback out for a few weeks.

The injury will all but rule out the young left back for his Wales international squad's upcoming World Cup qualifiers, and according to Swansea manager Michael Laudrup, "maybe one or two games for us". With Sunderland and West Ham at home for the Swan's next two PL fixtures, fantasy managers will be hoping for a quick recovery.

A spectacular Ben Davies goal wasn't enough for Swansea to come back against Arsenal.

Swansea lost the game 2-1 but Davies gave the Swans hope late in the game. Arsenal was able to hold on despite some Swansea pressure and the Gunners are now top of the table after Tottenham, Chelsea, and both Mancherter clubs lost points on the weekend. Swansea are now 13th in the Premier League after an extremely tough schedule to start off the season.

The Swans defender missed out on their mid-week Europa Cup match but should be fit to return to the starting line-up against Spurs.

Ben Davies is a promising young player returning from injury. This probably isn't the weekend to pick him for your starting line-up but it is a good chance to see how Michael Laudrup chooses between Davies and Neil Taylor.
