Seamus Coleman scored a crucial goal to help Everton to a win over QPR last weekend and he appears to be a better pick than Leighton Baines in fantasy at the moment.
It has been a while since we have seen the attacking exploits of Coleman, something that had been commonplace in the previous two seasons, but the tough reality is that it has been a while since Baines has been a fantasy stud either. To be fair to the left back, he is still the third-highest scoring defender in Yahoo this season, but unlike in previous seasons, he isn't creating much distance between himself and several defenders who are priced millions less. Just this past week Coleman outscored his teammate 13 to 4, yet Baines got the bigger rise in price even though both have the same ownership percentage. All it takes is for one penalty to set Baines up for a monster day, but week to week, Coleman is matching him on a points per pound basis. With his attacking form emerging, that should only tip the scales in Coleman's favor. Mar 25 - 7:31 PM

Seamus Coleman had a rough fantasy score in his last game and it saw his price drop to a very attractive number as Everton get set to host the league's basement dwellers, Leicester City.

Everton have shown signs of turning their season around in recent weeks, especially defensively, but a 0-1 result at Stamford Bridge in which Coleman was yellow carded caused the attacking fullback's price to take a dip to 11.71m. Any Toffee coverage in the back looks like a good idea this week, it is just a matter of whether you want to pay a premium for someone like Leighton Baines or roll the dice on Tim Howard as a budget play.

Looking for anything positive to build off of, Everton's defense surely received a morale boost after keeping West Brom from scoring in their last league mach.A

A solid 14 points from Seamus Coleman in the Yahoo game against the Baggies, reminiscent of potential from season's past, but not nearly common enough this term. Leighton Baines would have 17 himself and would have doubled that score in all likelihood were it not for the stinginess of Kevin Mirallas. Their next match against Crystal Palace looked promising enough a couple weeks ago, with Mile Jedinak and Yannick Bolasie off on international duty, but the Eagles have scored five times over their past two as Alan Pardew has changed the club philosophy and Jason Puncheon is hitting form again. Still, with an increase in scoring has impacted their defending negatively and an attacking fullback like Coleman can still deliver the goods even if Everton concede.

Seamus Coleman and Gareth Barry have emerged with minor injury doubts on the eve of the Week 11 deadline.

Coleman missed out on the midweek Europa match and with the rash of injuries in the back combined with his reputation of playing through knocks, it was probably a cautious move by Martinez to make sure his right back is fit for the trip to Sunderland. Barry, meanwhile, picked up a fresh knock during midweek action and may be in more of a position to sit out Sunday, with seldom-used Darron Gibson available to partner James McCarthy in central defense should Martinez be looking for a way to get Gibson some playing time.

Everton's Seamus Coleman can continue his good form at Burnley in Week 9.

Vital to Everton and a genuine goal threat, Burnley will find it difficult to cope with Coleman's runs down the right flank and the full-back could have a huge fantasy week. We marginally prefer him to Leighton Baines, but both are expensive options so you'd need to feel confident in Coleman's returns in order to splash the cash.

Everton manager Roberto Martinez will make a late decision regarding the involvement of Steven Pienaar and Seamus Coleman ahead of this weekend’s Merseyside Derby against Liverpool.

The Toffees will be hoping that at least one of the pair can return in time for the early kick-off at Anfield although full-back Coleman [minor head injury] is the player most likely to be given the green light. Steven Pienaar [thigh] has been sidelined for over a month and his involvement – certainly from the start – would be a risk with little more than a few days on the training ground. Everton will be hoping to avoid defeat for the third time in a week although the team that lost to Swansea on Tuesday did contain a number of players returning from long-term absence – Tony Hibbert, Bryan Oviedo and Antolin Alcaraz with James McCarthy and Arouna Kone on the bench.

The blow to the head Seamus Coleman suffered during Thursday's Europa clash with VL Wolfsburg is not expected to keep him out of Sunday's clash with Crystal Palace.

Roberto Martinez was quoted as saying "there is nothing to be too worried about" and thinks the dynamic right back will be fine for Sunday. It is a plus matchup for the Toffees, so this comes as comforting news for those expecting big things from Coleman.

The Everton defense made several mistakes, first early, then later on often, as they would concede six goals to Chelsea in a wild 3-6 final.

The officiating of today's match wasn't top notch by any means but it does not excuse today's defensive showing. Several times, Toffee defenders would try to play their marked man into an offside position and several times it cost them. They would rally after the early deficit but as the 2nd half played out, the back was breached time and again. Coleman got the worst of it from a fantasy perspective. Though he provided an assist to one of Everton's three scores, that was negated by an own goal he was credited with after deflecting an Eden Hazard shot home. Though the idea of keeping a clean sheet against Chelsea wasn't necessarily a realistic one, coughing up a half dozen on your own ground is a jarring reflection of the state of the Toffee defense.

Seamus Coleman will miss the trip to Thailand where Everton are playing a preseason friendly due to hamstring tightness.

Roberto Martinez stated it was a precautionary move so Coleman still looks set to start in the Toffees opener against Leicester City. They still have one remaining friendly in Germany this weekend so it's possible Coleman may miss that one as well. Should that happen, we should expect further details about his availability for the opener.

Seamus Coleman has signed a new contract with Everton that will see him remain with the club until 2019.

There was some talk of another club swooping in to grab the Irish right back, but Coleman and Everton have made a successful marriage thus far and his attacking ability is not the easiest thing to replace at his position. Roberto Martinez recently inked a five year deal himself to stay at Goodison Park and Leighton Baines is sticking around as well so the nucleus of the club remains intact.

Seamus Coleman was one of two Everton defenders to register an own goal and that was all it took for Southampton to take the points in a match the Toffees could not afford to lose as their chase for a Champions League spot took a major hit in a 2-0 loss.

Everton were immediately behind the eight ball when, in the opening minute, Antolin Alcaraz perhaps showed a bit of rust heading a Ricky Lambert cross perfectly into the wrong goal. A half hour later, it was Coleman's turn, as he directed a Nathaniel Clyne cross into the Toffees own net. The defense almost cost them again in the second half when John Stones nearly was called for hand ball. Meanwhile, the attack could not break the Southampton line as Romelu Lukaku was either off target or shooting directly at Artur Boruc. With Arsenal hosting a struggling Newcastle side, odds are Everton will be four points behind them with only two matches to play.

In a heated contest between Everton and Cardiff City, it was a goal from Seamus Coleman in the final moments that gave the Toffees a thrilling 2-1 win.

Everton were threatening all afternoon, but the match was goalless at halftime as Cardiff's keeper David Marshall made three top notch saves. Gerard Deulofeu made a sprint down the left flank and beat Marshall to get Everton finally on the board in the 59th minute. Cardiff then would equalize ten minutes later setting up an edge-of-your-seat final twenty minutes at Goodison Park. With under a minute of stoppage time left, Aiden McGeady sent a cross to the far post which Gareth Barry redirected back into the middle of the box where Coleman was there to strike home in dramatic fashion. With a double gameweek against Swansea and Newcastle, both of whom were in bad form today, be sure to grab some Toffees for your XI.

"Seamus Coleman has come through training really well" according to Everton manager Roberto Martinez, signaling a return at fullback for the Toffees XI this weekend against Tottenham Hotspur.

Coleman made a surprise return to the Everton bench last week, but that may have been more out of necessity than anything else, as Martinez was very short on defenders for that match. With Crystal Palace at home following this weekend's trip to Spurs, it would be best to take a "wait and see" approach and scoop him up quickly should he look promising and fit against Spurs.

An update on the injury to Everton fullback Seamus Coleman has been released. According to Everton's official website, he has a "minor soft tissue injury."

The update does not go beyond that, with no timetable for his return. However, when taken into the consideration the phrasing of the injury, Coleman's willingness to play through knocks, and with a ten day layoff between Premier League matches, there seems to be every possibility he could return in time for the Merseyside Derby. John Stones is the likeliest candidate to deputize should Coleman fail to return in time.

Seamus Coleman was substituted out of today's match against West Brom with a hamstring injury. The move may have just been preventative, but Everton will learn more over the coming days.

Coleman, who has been in great form for Everton recently, was replaced by youngster John Stone. Tony Hibbert would be a more natural replacement if Coleman is forced to miss any future matches but there's no one on the roster who can match Coleman's energy and work on both ends of the pitch.
