Coleman started and scored in the 3-0 win over Aston Villa on Saturday.

Coleman was a question mark coming in due to a head injury, but he played the full match and contributed by scoring a goal and snatching a clean sheet. He was the No. 1 defensive fantasy option last year, and he appears finally fit to try to rediscover his form.

Seamus Coleman: Past News Updates   ( ▲ View most recent update )

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Coleman (head) is in the starting XI for Everton's Premier League match against Aston Villa on Saturday.

Coleman has been sidelined for nearly a month with a head injury suffered during Europa League play, but he finally returns to the pitch with a solid clean sheet opportunity against a Villa side that has struggled to score this season, though they do welcome back striker Christian Benteke on Saturday.

Everton manager Roberto Martinez said Thursday that Coleman (head) could return Saturday against Aston Villa or Thursday against Lille in the Europa League.

With Everton not playing the first match, many fantasy owners won't have the luxury of waiting for confirmed lineups to make their decision on Coleman, who will likely be replaced by Tony Hibbert if he can't go against Villa.

Everton manager Roberto Martinez said Thursday that Coleman is still not fully recovered from his head injury, though he should return relatively soon. "I don't think...Seamus will be out for too long and I expect (him) to play some part in the next block of six games. We are going to assess (him) day by day," Martinez said.

While it's good that Coleman appears close to regaining fitness, Martinez's words certainly does expel confidence that Coleman will be fully fit to face Aston Villa on Oct. 18 after the international break. With John Stones sidelined for 10-to-14 weeks with an ankle injury, Coleman will be needed sooner rather than later.

Coleman suffered the injury during a Europa League clash with VfL Wolfsburg last month, and he has not been able to take the field since. If he is unable to play, John Stones will likely start in his place again.

Everton manager Roberto Martinez said Friday that Coleman will face a late fitness test ahead of Saturday's Merseyside derby due to a head injury that has kept him out of the last two games.

Coleman suffered the injury last week against VfL Wolfsburg in the Europa League, and while he was available off the bench to face Crystal Palace last weekend, he did not play. If Coleman sits out again, John Stones will likely start in his place.

Coleman is available off the bench for Sunday's Premier League match against West Brom.

Coleman picked up a small head injury in Thursday's Europa League match against VfL Wolfsburg, which is why he's not starting Sunday. However, he did not suffer a concussion, so he should return soon. John Stones will start in his place.
