Ruffier made two saves in Sunday's 1-1 draw to Dijon.

Multiple injuries and players in and out of the squad and particularly the defensive line are hampering Les Verts' form and Ruffier hasn't had a clean sheet in four consecutive matches now across all competitions. The keeper will try to stop that run against the fairly inept Caen, who have only scored nine times in their nine matches.

Stephane Ruffier: Past News Updates   ( ▲ View most recent update )

October 3, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Ruffier hauled in five saves in Sunday's 2-0 defeat to Lyon.

Ruffier was phenomenal to give Les Verts a fighting chance to come back in the game. The keeper frustrated Lyon's attack with some incredible saves but had to surrender a couple of scores at the end to the more clinical hosts. The Greens are playing with a patchwork of a defence and are leaky, at times, which limits Ruffier's fantasy upside.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Ruffier made two saves in Sunday's 3-1 win over Lille.

Continues injuries along the defensive line and endless rotations keep hampering the Greens' defensive form. Nevertheless, Ruffier is doing his best and has kept offenses to seven goals conceded in seven matches with only one allowed in the past three matches. Next up is a visit to Lyon who are surprisingly unpredictable thus far this season.

September 21, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Ruffier made six saves including saving a penalty while keeping a clean sheet in Wednesday's scoreless draw with Nantes.

After a rough opener where he conceded three goals, Ruffier has conceded just twice since and keeping three clean sheets. His performance Wednesday was certainly "man of the match" worthy, making six saves to keep an egg on Nantes' side of the scoreboard including saving a 17th minute penalty after being reduced to 10 men and watching two of his defenders bow out in the opening quarter-hour due to injury. Saint-Etienne will host Lille in their next match where Ruffier will look for his third clean sheet in a row.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Ruffier hauled in three saves en route to a clean sheet in Sunday's 1-0 win over Bastia.

The seemingly much less busier of the two keepers - Ruffier actually had to make more saves. Bastia posted more real danger with the little they managed to create, though, Ruffier was flawless and ended up with a full fantasy basket out of a pretty fortunate night for Les Verts. Ahead of him is a double-header facing the struggling offensively Nantes and Lille that could make up for another successful week.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Ruffier made three saves en route to a heroic 1-1 draw away to PSG in Friday's Ligue 1 clash.

Ruffier was brilliant and had some crucial saves to keep his team in contention before the stoppage-time equalizer. Lucas Moura's penalty conversions was merciless. After a very leaky start of the campaign Les Verts have picked up the slack on the defensive side of the ball and this is third straight match where the keeper doesn't allow goal from open play. He is back in fantasy contention after the Greens were one of the best defensive teams last season.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Ruffier has been suspended for three Europa League matches for his red card during the second leg of the play-off tie against Beitar Jerusalem, L'Equipe reports.

Ruffier was sent off for unsportsmanlike conduct and was slapped with the harsh ban. Jessy Moulin will deputies in Euro matches while that almost certainly guarantees, if healthy, that the former will be between the posts for Ligue 1 action.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Ruffier made two saves, claimed three balls, and kept a clean sheet in Sunday's 0-0 draw with Toulouse.

Ruffier recorded his first clean sheet of the season, which was aided heavily by a stellar performance from his backline. He will have another crack at a clean sheet when Saint-Ettienne host Paris Saint-Germain 9 September.
