Krul (elbow) is expeted to be fit for Newcastle's upcoming clash with Leicester on Saturday, ESPN FC reports.

Krul was in question for the match after suffering an elbow injury while on international duty with the Netherlands. While Krul's matchup against Leicester at home is a good one on paper, fantasy owners should be cautious with the Dutch keeper after only picking up one clean sheet over his first six matches.

Krul has been sent home from international duty after suffering a left elbow injury in training Saturday, De Telefraaf reports.

The severity of the injury has yet to be determined, but Krul will miss Monday's Euro 2016 qualifier against Iceland. If he is forced to miss any Premier League time, Rob Elliott will likely deputize.

Krul made two saves and allowed one goal in Newcastle's 0-1 loss to Stoke on Monday.

Krul has only picked up one clean sheet over the first six matches of the season. The Dutch keeper was a popular cheap fantasy option going into the season, but with turmoil brewing on Tyneside, it has been difficult for any Newcastle player to return fantasy value.

Krul allowed four goals and recorded three saves in Newcastle's 0-4 loss to Southampton on Saturday.

Krul has allowed seven goals over his last two Premier League matches and is becoming more and more difficult to trust even in good matchups. Newcastle will welcome Hull City to St. James' Park next week.

Krul allowed three goals while making four saves in Newastle's 3-3 draw with Crystal Palace on Saturday.

Krul had an erratic game which ultimately ended with a disappointing result for both Toon fans and fantasy owners. Krul is still a solid low cost fantasy keeper despite the mediocre results so far. With Newcastle's next five matches coming against: Southampton, Hull, Stoke, Swansea, and Leicester, now is the time to lock the Dutch shot stopper into fantasy lineups.
