Ruddy made five saves in Wednesday's 4-2 victory over Watford.

The Canaries' overall team effort was more than enough, this time around, to compensate for their defensive and keeper deficiencies. With that being said, though, Ruddy's poor play, at times, have cost the team many headaches and trouble and is one of the reasons why the team has just been relegated. His future with the club could be at high risk and playing him in fantasy is even riskier.

Manchester City need just a point to solidify their Champions League spot for next season, which keeps Kevin De Bruyne near the top of the midfielder rankings for the final week of the season.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Ruddy made one save in Saturday's 1-0 loss to Man Utd.

Ruddy could've probably cover his goal and react a little better to Juan Mata's smartly placed shot for the winner but the main blame for the goal surely falls on the defense and Sebastien Bassong, in particular, who failed to head away the pass to Wayne Rooney who created the danger for the goal. With the absence of Timm Klose Norwich have gone back to a very porous state and Ruddy's fantasy upside is very low regardless if the team will manage to pick up some points in their last two games of the season.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Ruddy made two saves and conceded once in Saturday's 1-0 defeat to Arsenal.

Ruddy wasn't really tested much as Norwich did a strong job for the opening hour of keeping the Gunners mostly at bay. However, when Danny Welbeck got some space, Ruddy had no chance to keep him off the scoresheet. Ruddy will need to take a step up if Norwich is to remain in the Premier League, sitting two points from safety with three matches—home against Manchester United and Watford and then a trip to Everton—remaining.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Ruddy made four saves in Saturday's 1-0 loss to Crystal Palace.

Ruddy did everything he could to help his rejuvenated team continue their successful run to salvation. He had a few good saves but was helpless and capitulated at the Jason Puncheon's fantastic strike that settled the game. Despite the Canaries' surge of late they're still porous at times in defense and the keeper's fantasy upside isn't very high. If Timm Klose's injury turn out to be serious that could also affect the whole defense badly. Ruddy will try to do better in a pivotal home game against survival rivals - Sunderland next Saturday.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Ruddy conceded two and made three saves in Norwich City’s 3-2 home win against Newcastle on Saturday.

Norwich’s stopper didn’t have much to do in the game, apart from picking the ball out of the net twice, but when he did he was called upon to make a stunning late one-handed save that paved the way for Norwich to record a crucial win against fellow relegation battlers, Newcastle. Having said that, Norwich concede too many goals and, therefore, it is hard to recommend Ruddy with no easy games on the horizon.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Ruddy made no saves during Saturday's 1-0 win over West Brom.

The Baggies were the more active team for the most part of the game but could never really test Ruddy. That's the keeper's second consecutive clean sheet and after an absolutely dreadful season, somehow he and the fighting-for-survival Canaries have found some defensive form. Next up for him, in a fortnight, would be a huge relegation battle at home against Newcastle.

March 12, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Ruddy made three saves while keeping a clean sheet in Saturday's scoreless draw with Manchester City.

Ruddy was strong throughout, with the balance of play shifted heavily toward the visiting Citizens. Ruddy lost the starting job from Dec. 5 through Feb. 6, an 11-match spell on the sidelines before being installed back into the starting XI. This was his second clean sheet of the season, but this is likely more of an aberration than the start of a trend. With that being said, Ruddy will need to be strong if the Canaries want to avoid relegation.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

It was another tough outing for Ruddy (two saves) and Norwich, who lost 1-0 at Swansea. Norwich have lost their last two road matches by a 1-0 score line.

Ruddy is a cheap goalkeeper, but he only has one clean sheet on the season and won't have much value until Norwich figures out how to improve their defense.
