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.

Ruddy made one save during Norwich City's 1-0 loss to Hull City on Saturday. Ruddy was not challenged much during the match, as the one goal he allowed came on a penalty kick in the game's 22nd minute.
