Ruddy conceded two goals but made three saves and a claim in a dreadful home loss to Leicester City on Saturday.

In his defense, there wasn’t much he could do on both goals, especially, on the first one which came from the spot from the current Premier League goal scoring leader – Jamie Vardy. Ruddy would have a rare opportunity for a clean sheet, though, when visiting the rock-bottom-worst-offense winless Newcastle in week 9.

Fantasy Premier League Rankings: Gameweek 9

While Manchester City's defense hasn't been a tight as it was early in the season, a home match against Bournemouth puts Aleksandar Kolarov at the top of the defender rankings.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Ruddy made six saves and conceded one goal in a 1-1 draw to Liverpool on Sunday.

It's been a strange campaign for Ruddy, as he's had to make four saves or more, or one save or less in every match thus far. The low-totaled shot games came against Bournemouth, Stoke, and Sunderland, so it's clear that it's a matter of competition for Norwich. With all the lower-end squads Norwich has played, that means their schedule is about to get significantly tougher. In fact, they have to play one of the hottest team next Saturday in West Ham in their upcoming fixture.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Ruddy made one save and conceded one goal in Norwich City's 3-1 victory over Bournemouth.

The usually high-powered Bournemouth were on their back heels all game and were only able to generate seven shots, two of which went on net. Ruddy was aided by the post and Robbie Brady in the first half to keep the Cherries off the score sheet and allowed Ruddy to settle into the game. While not a great play from week-to-week, Norwich City looks the part of being a Premier League team, though don't count on too many clean sheets from the 28-year-old keeper.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Ruddy made five saves but conceded three goals in Sunday's 3-0 defeat to Southampton.

Playing with 10 men for upwards of an hour, Ruddy saw the defense in front of him wear down over the course of the match. He did well to make as many saves as he did, but in the end, he was woefully overmatched by the Saints. He'll look to get back on track after the international break when they take on Bournemouth.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Ruddy made one save while conceding a late goal in Saturday's 3-1 victory over Sunderland.

Ruddy was just two minutes plus stoppage time away from keeping a clean sheet, but conceded a goal off a set piece in the 88th minute. He did make one save, but was mostly untroubled as he was handed a 3-0 lead within the first hour of the match. City's backline is the weak link on the team, which will leave Ruddy susceptible to numerous good chances and limit his ability to rack up clean sheets.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Ruddy made two saves during Saturday's scoreless draw with Manchester City.

Ruddy's clean sheet may be the most shocking line of the weekend, keeping out a Man City squad that had scored more goals (26) than every Premier League team other than Liverpool and Chelsea have scored at home. While it's a solid result, Ruddy remains a very questionable fantasy option.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Ruddy didn't make a single save but posted a clean sheet during Saturday's 1-0 win over Hull City.

Ruddy now has seven clean sheets on the season, although only two have come in his last seven matches.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Ruddy made 10 saves en route to a clean sheet during Saturday's 2-0 win over West Brom.

A remarkable performance for Ruddy, recording three more saves than his previous season-high. He has recorded clean sheets in two of his last three matches, although the other match was an embarrassing 5-1 loss to Liverpool last Wednesday.
