Mathieu Debuchy has a groin injury, and will miss around a month.
Newcastle are thin at fullback. Davide Santon would normally switch flanks to play on the right, but he's a doubt to make the Fulham match with his own injury. Paul Dummett is the starting left-back, and Massadio Haidara is a left-sided player as well. Mar 13 - 5:56 PM

Mathieu Debuchy refused to commit to Newcastle United beyond this season. The right back is being linked to PSG and Bayern Munich.

Debuchy continues to be a strong fantasy performer, regardless of how the team does. Newcastle are set for a major revamp this summer after not making a permanent signing in 18-months.

Newcastle United fullback, Mathieu Debuchy, left the match against Chelsea before halftime and will miss the Spurs match on Tuesday.

Debuchy has had a fine season, but his drop in form is matched by the club's troubles. He's a fantasy stay-away until they show that they can right the ship.

Matheu Debuchy struggled on the fantasy sheet once again in Newcastle's loss to Chelsea.

Debuchy has been quiet since his return from suspension and is disappointing owners right now. He was once of the best defenders in the game early on but Newcastle's form has dropped and the clean sheets are no longer there. I would give Debuchy another week or two before I drop him, but he certainly doesn't look as good as he did at the beginning of the season.

Mathieu Debuchy has served his three-match ban and will return for Newcastle as they travel to Norwich.

Newcastle are in a bit of turmoil with the proposed sale of Yohan Cabaye to PSG, but on the plus side they can welcome back Mathieu Debuchy to settle the defence and give the team some attacking impetus out of the back.

Mathieu Debuchy will not play against Manchester City this weekend as he is serving the second of his three match ban after being sent off against West Brom.

Debuchy missed Newcastle's FA Cup loss to Cardiff and will also miss their league match at West Ham. He will return at Norwich City on 28 Jan. Davide Santon and Massadio Haidara will be fullbacks for the Magpies. Haidara is an interesting fantasy option, at least as bench filler, though more so against the Hammers than Manchester City.

Mathieu Debuchy was sent off for a horrible challenge on Claudio Yacob.

Debuchy lost the ball in midfield and flew in with both feet trying to win it back. This was as clear-cut a red card as you'll see, and ten-man Newcastle couldn't hold out against West Brom, losing 0-1 to a late Saido Berahino penalty.

Mathieu Debuchy came off in late against Manchester United with what is being reported as a hip injury. He's in the Newcastle squad for the match against Southampton, but has to be considered a bit of a doubt.

I would expect Debuchy to make the game. If not, Davide Santon would switch flanks and Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa could cover the left. It might be wise to stash a half-decent defender on your bench this week... just in case.

Mathieu Debuchy picked up his fifth yellow card of the season (four in the League, one in the League Cup) and will be suspended for Norwich City's week 12 visit to St James Park.

Debuchy has been a fantasy stud this year and managers will hate to see him missing from such a tasty matchup. His absence may see Davide Santon switch flanks and Masadio Haidara come in. Otherwise, a center back may have to play out-of-position on the right.

Mathieu Debuchy scored his first Premier League goal of his career, levelling the match with Sunderland at 1-1, but the Magpies would fall late on in a 2-1 defeat.

The defensive bargain of the Yahoo game at the start of the season has finally paid off for managers who have kept and started this week. Even when not scoring goals and Newcastle not keeping clean sheets, Debuchy has been a stat filler in fantasy all season. His next two fixtures against Chelsea and Tottenham are not ideal, but he can remain on your bench if you can afford it.

Newcastle United pair Mathieu Debuchy and Mousa Sissoko were called up for France's World Cup qualifiers against Georgia and Belarus. Teammate Yohan Cabaye was left out.

The pair will now face two long trips to Eastern Europe days ahead of the Magpies trip to Aston Villa. Cabaye's exclusion is likely the result of the fact that he isn't playing matches as his transfer saga rolls on unresolved.
