Manager Roberto Martinez said Tuesday that Osman's groin injury, which he suffered last weekend against Swansea City, is not considered serious, and he has a chance to face Burnley on Saturday.

Osman hasn't been a big fantasy contributor this season, but he helps the Toffees move the ball up the pitch, which helps players like Romelu Lukaku and Steven Naismith. He'll face a late fitness test before the weekend fixtures, though not too many fantasy teams should be affected.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Osman was forced off in the first half against Swansea City because of a groin injury, according to the Liverpool Echo.

Osman has been an important piece for the Toffees recently, though his replacement, Steven Pienaar, helped set up Everton's first goal.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Osman grabbed an assist off a Seamus Coleman goal in the 2-1 win over QPR Sunday.

This now gives Osman two assists and a single goal on the season and he's been lost in fantasy relevance due to Everton's defensive struggles. Osman is a very reliable player, but not a fantasy option at this point of his career. Look for Osman to continue to start in Everton's next match on April 4th against Southampton.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Osman scored the winning goal in the 2-1 win over West Ham Saturday.

Osman hasnt contributed much this season, but the goal is a very promising sign. Osman now has an assist and a goal on the season and he'll look to build on that next weekend against Spurs.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Osman recorded an assist in the 3-2 loss to Crystal Palace Sunday.

Osman is a very reliable source of assists from the defensive position and he got his first of the season Sunday. The defense has been suspect from Everton, so it remains to be seen if they'll continue attacking so heavy out of the back.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Osman suffered a laceration near his eye after getting kicked in the face during Sunday's win over Arsenal, PA Sport reports.

Osman had to come off after just 10 minutes due to the injury. He headed straight for the dressing room and was replaced by Ross Barkley, who is a more upside fantasy play anyway.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Osman was unable to score, but got off five shots in the 0-1 loss to Spurs on Sunday.

With Romelu Lukaku (ankle) out and Ross Barkley not starting, Osman was asked to be the goal scorer Sunday. Consider this a one time deal and once the full team is healthy, there likely won't be as many chances for Osman up front.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Osman had a big game Saturday, contributing a goal and an assist in an easy 4-1 win over Fulham.

Osman was everywhere Saturday and he filled up the stat sheet. He tallied a goal, an assist, and even got off five shots during the game. Ironically, he did this once earlier this year against Aston Villa, but has not recorded a goal or an assist besides those two matches. Osman is a bit lost in the shuffle in the Everton squad and would be hard to trust in fantasy terms.
