RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Coleman made a surprise early return to the lineup Saturday, but did not come off the bench during Everton's 2-1 victory over Aston Villa.

Coleman's return to the bench is a promising sign, as it brings more hope that he should be ready to return to the pitch for the February 9 match against Tottenham. Coleman has been one of fantasy's top defenders with five goals and one assist, in addition to helping Everton keep nine clean sheets.

Coleman (hamstring) is available off the bench for Saturday's Premier League match against Aston Villa.

Manager Roberto Martinez said Thursday that he thought the weekend would come too quickly for Coleman, but it appears he was a bit off in his prediction. While Coleman isn't starting, it's certainly good news that he could play if needed.

Coleman (hamstring) is not expected to play Saturday against Aston Villa. Manager Roberto Martinez said Coleman "is a little too early for the weekend," but added he "should be available for the first game after Villa."

With that timeframe, Coleman should be able to return to the pitch for Everton's match against Tottenham on February 9 at White Hart Lane.

Coleman (hamstring) will not be fit for Tuesday's Merseyside derby at Anfield, the Liverpool Echo reports.

There was some hope that Coleman would be able to return for one of the biggest Merseyside derbies in recent memory, but it looks like the hamstring is still bothering him. His next shot at the pitch will come Saturday against Aston Villa.

Everton announced that Coleman suffered a "minor soft tissue injury" during Wednesday's draw with West Brom.

Coleman came up limp during the match and immediately held his hamstring. He has already begun the process of recovery, although it's unclear what his availability will be for the Merseyside derby on January 28 at Anfield.

Coleman suffered a hamstring injury during Monday's match at West Brom. Manager Roberto Martinez said "the next 24 hours are going to be vital to find out how he feels and the extent of the injury. Seamus is a really fit boy, so when he has that feeling that something is wrong with his hamstring, we need to take that seriously."

Coleman has been a remarkable fantasy contributor this season, both for the number of clean sheets that Everton have recorded, and the high number of goals he's scored (five) for a defender. Luckily for Everton, there are no Premier League matches this weekend, so Coleman will have a little extra time to rest up before the big Merseyside derby on January 28 at Anfield.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Coleman was taken off in the 78th minute of Monday's match against West Brom after picking up a knock.

Coleman was seen holding his hamstring as he came off the pitch, and it was clearly serious enough to force him off. He'll likely have a scan this week to determine the extent of the injury.
