Adrian remained on the bench in West Ham's 3-0 win over NK Domzale.
Adrian was expected to be the Hammers' starting goalkeeper this season and that could still be the plan, but it was surprising to see Randolph start in a competitive match. Randolph was just given a new contract after playing well in the EURO 2016 tournament and this is a positional battle to watch going forward this season. If Randolph wins out, he could be available for free in fantasy leagues and will be worth picking up. Aug 4 - 6:57 PM

A calf strain will bring an early end to Adrian’s season. The Spanish goalkeeper missed the home defeat to Swansea, and today, Slavan Bilic confirmed the 29-year-old would not be ready for the visit of Manchester United on Tuesday.

Despite dislocating his finger last season, Saturday was the first match Adrian had missed through injury since joining the club in the summer of 2013. Darren Randolph will deputise in his absence with the Republic of Ireland international expected to fill the void on the final day as well. Bilic reports no fresh injury concerns, but following the shock 1-4 loss to Swansea, the Croatian coach may look to freshen his side. Diafra Sakho, Enner Valencia, James Collins and James Tomkins all make a strong case for a recall as the Hammers push for a Europa League qualifying spot.

For the first time in Premier League history West Ham United played to a 0-0 draw for the third straight match, today against Swansea City.

The opponents, Swansea, were the better side in terms of a scoring threat, but Adrian made a couple of key saves while the Hammers were perhaps lucky to not get penalized for a handball by James Collins just after the hour mark. Nikica Jelavic earned his first start for the Hammers in league play but provided little threat, and the lack of playmakers Dimitri Payet and Manuel Lanzini continues to be felt as West Ham have not scored for three straight matches. Still, considering their attack has been weakened by those absentees, they have done well to keep clean sheets in the mean time and earn some points along the way.

West Ham goalkeeper Adrian will return from suspension this week to face Manchester City on the road.

Adrian is one of the better Premier League goalkeepers but it's hard to recommend him in this matchup against the best Premier League team. You can buy low on Adrian after this match as he is likely going to have done nothing of note in the first six weeks, mainly due to his suspension, but his fortunes should turn around with an easier schedule stating in week eight.

West Ham will appeal Adrian's red card from their match this past Saturday.

Adrian was sent off for dangerous play in what Slaven Bilic deemed an unintentional offense. Adrian raised his foot high when trying to get the ball in the last minutes of the match and the result was a sending off and Carl Jenkinson having to play goalkeeper for the last two minutes. Losing Adrian could hurt West Ham as their backup goalkeeper is not their strongest position. Check back later this week to see if his suspension is lifted.

West Ham have signed Darren Randolph as a backup goalkeeper.

Randolphs comes from Birmingham City and has played all but one of their matches in the past two season. He has two Republic of Ireland caps and more than 300 senior appearances. Despite his resume, he is not going to be challenging Adrian for a starting spot and can happily be left on the fantasy waiver wire unless Adrian goes down with an injury. Adrian had a very solid season for West Ham and won them a few points by single handedly keeping the opposition out despite a number of injuries to their defense. He was the sixth best goalkeeper in the Yahoo! fantasy game and can probably improve on that next season.

West Ham assistant boss Neil McDonald laments his side’s current injury problems following a disappointing derby defeat at the Emirates on Saturday and confirms even his goalkeeper – Adrian – dislocated his finger during the warm-up but the Spaniard insisted he played the game.

Adrian was helpless to stop the Gunners onslaught but continued his impressive form by pulling off a string of outstanding saves however it wasn’t enough as Arsenal won their eighth consecutive league game at home. Defensive injuries and unavailability left the Hammers’ with a patched up back four which was unable to cope with the pace and power of Giroud, Walcott, Ozil and Ramsey. James Tomkins [shoulder] and Winston Reid [calf] were missing while Carl Jenkinson couldn’t play under the terms of his loan agreement forcing Cheikhou Kouyate to drop back into defence but this time there was no goalscoring / man-of-the-match performance leaving Allardyce with just one in twelve putting his side in danger of dropping out of the top 10.

Adrian was sent off during the Hammer's 0-0 draw against Southampton in mid-week for illegally handling the ball outside of the box but has appealed the decision and won.

West Ham appealed the red card immediately, citing that Sadio Mane fouled Adrian before he handled the ball. They won the appeal and Adrian will not serve a ban. West Ham have had a solid season once again and their defense is reliable against lesser oppositions. Adrian should be owned in all draft-leagues and is an option in the Yahoo! game in weeks where the schedule is favorable.

West Ham United goalkeeper Adrian was sent off in the Hammers' 0-0 draw against Southampton.

The goalkeeper was sent off for handling the ball outside of the area but West Ham were able to hold off a strong Southampton push at the end of the match. Adrian will serve a one match ban when West Ham face West Brom in the FA Cup this weekend so he is not going to miss any more Premier League action due to it, which is great for fantasy owners. Southampton will want another crack at this match, but it's not over for them yet as they are still in the top four, a point ahead of Arsenal.

Adrian made the most of a match in which he was constantly under fire by Chelsea's attack, making several saves, but the volume was too much to handle as the Blues would beat him twice and the Hammers would leave Stamford Bridge empty-handed in a 2-0 loss.

Adrian made seven official saves and most of them were of the acrobatic variety. A couple of them came in the game's opening half hour and it allowed West Ham to keep things level until Chelsea finally broke through. The Hammers meanwhile offered very little threat, with their best two chances being supplied by substitute Morgan Amalfitano late on when Chelsea were already sporting a two goal cushion. Though Adrian is bound to have an unappealing fantasy score from this match, he should be a solid buy in kinder fixtures ahead.

Adrian has been good since taking over from Jussi Jaaskelainen but not today as he was caught out of his net in the 8th minute by Wayne Rooney in a 2-0 loss to Manchester United.

West Ham were never really in the match with Rooney scoring on eight minutes and then again in the thirty third. Adrian was forced into four saves in addition to the two goals he conceded and his teammates yielded 55% of the possession to the away team. The result will be distressing to Sam Allardyce as he had a full strength line-up which has been rare this season. It is highly unlikely that the Hammers are in danger of going down but the gulf in quality between even a sub-par United side and Big Sam's best eleven was pretty wide.

West Ham goalkeeper Adrian has been in fantastic form as West Ham have won three in a row.

Adrian started off his Hammers career poorly but has picked up great form in the past few games. He has averaged over 16 points in his last six games, partly because of the wins and clean sheets West Ham have produced and partly because of his 29 saves over that period. Those numbers will surely go down, but Adrian seems to be a great goalkeeper to use in fantasy at the moment and a fairly safe bet for the rest of the season.

Chelsea slipped up in the race for the title as they were held to a 0-0 draw by a dogged West Ham at Stamford Bridge.

On paper this looked to be an easy home win for Chelsea, but West Ham defended incredibly well and their goalkeeper Adrián put in a man-of-the-match performance. The stopper tipped an Oscar shot on to the bar, before keeping out efforts from John Terry, Samuel Eto'o, Eden Hazard and Frank Lampard. Jose Mourinho's men remain in third place in the Premier League, three points behind new leaders Manchester City. The Hammers remain in the relegation zone.

West Ham chose to go with Adrian instead of Jussi Jaaskalainen at goal against Cardiff and the Spanish keeper rewarded them with a clean sheet.

The West Ham squad has been a mess as of late and the goalkeeper position is no different. Adrian and Jussi have been taking turns in goal but it seems like the Spanish keeper is the preferred choice at the moment. Adrian had conceded a total of 11 goals in his last two games(both Cup Matches) but rewarded the Hammers with seven saves and a clean sheet(for a total of 27 fantasy points) on Saturday. Despite the fantastic game, I would stay away from any West Ham goalkeeper as the Hammers can conceded five goals on any give day.
