The Scout marks Fantasy Premier League managers' cards as to which defenders they should be considering after the 2017/18 fixtures were published.
Dawson is the natural successor to Gareth McAuley as a source of goals from the West Brom defence.
Largely deployed at right-back, Dawson bettered his more popular team-mate in a number of areas last season.
The 27-year-old had more shots (21 to 16), shots in the penalty area (18 to 16) and shots on target (eight to seven).
His four goals were two fewer than McAuley, but the latter failed to register an attempt from Gameweek 27 onwards.
Dawson could become the prime target in a West Bromwich Albion side boasting a promising run over the first nine Gameweeks.
