RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Martin (ankle), who was unable to play in last weekend's match against Sunderland, is expected to be fit for Thursday's tie with Fulham, the Norfolk Eastern Daily Press reports. Manager Chris Hughton said Martin "probably could have been involved at the weekend, but we knew with this series of games coming up that it's important we made sure we didn't take any risks. So he'll be fine. He'll train today [Monday] and will be available for this series of games."

Martin has made 13 appearances for Norwich City this season, but relies primarily on clean sheets to produce any fantasy value. He's been able to do that just three times this season.

Martin netted for the second time this season as Norwich grabbed a 2-1 win over QPR on Saturday.

Martin is the glue for the Canaries. Not a great fantasy option, his value on the field, to Norwich, is immeasurable.

He's only missing a friendly, so hopefully that indicates this injury isn't serious.

Martin scored the first Premiership goal of his career in Saturday's 3-1 win over Swansea.

A day Martin will surely never, ever forget. He's has bounced around in the lower leagues in England his entire career, and Saturday's goal had to feel phenomenal.
