Martin scored a wonderful goal in the 61st minute of Norwich's 1-1 draw to Liverpool on Sunday.

The finish was spectacular for Martin, as he looked more like a striker than a center back. After a punched ball by Simon Mignolet, Martin simply chested the ball and than poked a volley in mid-air to finish upper-90 as smoothly as possible. The defender has very little fantasy upside as he won't be attacking much and wont get many clean sheets on Norwich, but he's deserved his due on this day. The crazy thing is that he has three goals, but he'll have trouble finishing the season with any more than five. In any case, Martin will look to keep the impressive stretch going against West Ham next Saturday.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Martin scored during the 28th minute of Norwich City's draw against Stoke City on Saturday.

Martin has now remarkably scored in back-to-back matches from his center back position. While that's definitely an unexpected development from the defender, Martin's early season returns have been fantastic. As the captain of the Canaries, Martin will now target earning his first clean sheet sooner than later.

Martin scored a goal on his only shot in Saturday's 3-1 victory over Sunderland.

Not known as much of a scorer, Martin opened the scoring on Saturday in the 26th minute, carefully slotting the ball into the corner off a rebound. With just two goals in 48 starts last season for the Canaries in the Championship, Martin likely won't become a heavy goal scorer this season either, though he does log heavy minutes and provides a steady presence in defense for the recently promoted side.

Martin was an unused substitute for Norwich City's loss to Fulham on Thursday.

Martin returned from an ankle injury that held him out the prior weekend. After being a fairly consistent starter, he has made one substitute appearance and stayed on the bench for the club's last three league matches.

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.

Martin was named in the provisional squad and is expected to resume normal action.

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