Renato Sanches    M    Bayern Munich
Sanches scored Portugal's only goal in their 1-1 win over Poland in penalties on Thursday. The 18-year-old was used throughout the pitch for Portugal and finished with three shots and the second-most possession on his team.

Fantasy Analysis

At times, Sanches tried to do too much, but his skill is more than evident. He'll be a player to monitor when Portugal face either Wales or Belgium in the semifinals.
Robert Lewandowski    F    Bayern Munich
Lewandowski scored his first goal of Euro 2016 in Poland's 1-1 loss in penalties to Portugal on Thursday. Lewandowski finished with four shots and was dangerous from the start, scoring the goal in just the second minute.

Fantasy Analysis

Poland made it to the quarterfinals despite Lewandowski only scoring one goal in five matches. Looking at the stat sheet, Lewandowski was underwhelming, but he did plenty as captain for the Polish in the tournament.
Raphael Guerreiro    D    Borussia Dortmund
Guerreiro returned to training Wednesday after picking up a knock during Portugal's Euro 2016 round of 16 clash with Croatia on Saturday, Sky Sports reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Guerreiro played the full 120 minutes of Saturday's match but came out of the game with a minor muscular problem, forcing him to miss a few days of training. He's expected to be available for selection and will be hoping to continue his strong performance at the Euros. The full back has two clean sheets in three appearances and Poland are not the most prolific team at the Euros, scoring three goals in four matches.
Breel Embolo    F    FC Schalke 04
Embolo completed a transfer to Bundesliga side FC Schalke 04 for an undisclosed fee from FC Basel.

Fantasy Analysis

Embolo caught the attention of the bigger clubs with his performance in last season's Europa League as he tallied two goals and an assist in seven starts and one substitution off the bench. In addition, the midfielder netted 10 scores in Super League competition. Fantasy owners can expect the teenager to take some time to adjust to the higher level of competition offered by the Bundesliga but will certainly want to watch his development.
John Brooks    D    Hertha BSC Berlin
Brooks was held out of the Copa America match against Colombia with inflammation in his knee, BZ-Berlin reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Brooks' knee injury will have little impact for the US National Team now that Copa America Centenario has wrapped up. However, without further details on the severity of the injury, concerns are high for Hertha BSC, who are qualified for the Europa League this upcoming season. The defender averaged a tackle per match in the Bundesliga last season along with tallying three goals and an assist in all competitions. When healthy, the 23-year-old's speed on the wing make him an attacking threat, albeit one that hasn't materialised often in Germany.
Neven Subotic    D    Borussia Dortmund
Subotic said that he wants to transfer in order to play more frequently, reports the Daily Mail.

Fantasy Analysis

The defender was not the first-choice this past season, and played only six league matches for the squad. He is contracted through 2018, but is anxious to find more playing time with a potential move.
Henrikh Mkhitaryan    M    Borussia Dortmund
Dortmund has agreed to Manchester United's transfer fee offer of £26.3 million for Mkhitaryan, reports Sky Sports.

Fantasy Analysis

The midfielder has already agreed to personal terms with United and is expected to undergo a medical exam with the club in the next week. He has one year remaining on his current contract with Dortmund, but now looks likely to head to the Premier League this summer.
Admir Mehmedi    F    Bayer Leverkusen
Mehmedi started in all four matches for Switzerland in Euro 2016. He tallied one goal on five shots (two on target), eight crosses and three dribbles and takes his international tally to 45 caps and five goals. Switzerland finished 1-1 with Poland in regular and over-time of their Round of 16 clash Saturday but were knocked out of the finals after 5-4 penalty shoot-out.

Fantasy Analysis

Mehmedi was a valuable squad rotation player for Leverkusen last season. The 25-year-old versatile midfielder was lining up all over the field, including on the bench when necessary, bringing a decent fantasy upside when trusted with a starting role. He finished the season with two goals and five assists in 28 Bundesliga appearances (14 starts) and totaled seven goals in 43 appearances across all competitions.
Haris Seferovic    F    Eintracht Frankfurt
Seferovic appeared in all four matches (three starts) for Switzerland in Euro 2016. He combined for nine shots, with one off the post and five on target, four crosses and two fouls and takes his international tally to 33 caps and seven goals. Switzerland finished 1-1 with Poland in regular and over-time of their Round of 16 clash Saturday but were knocked out of the finals after 5-4 penalty shoot-out.

Fantasy Analysis

Seferovic had a decent campaign with Eintracht Frankfurt last season. The 24-year-old checked in some consistent production, though, continuous disciplinary issues kept hampering his fantasy upside. The left winger finished the season with three goals, five assists, an average of two shots per game and 10 yellow cards in 29 Bundesliga appearances (25 starts).
Fabian Frei    M    FSV Mainz 05
Frei came off the bench once for Switzerland in Euro 2016. He tallied one shot off target and one dribble and takes his international tally to nine caps with one goal. Switzerland finished 1-1 with Poland in regular and over-time of their Round of 16 clash Saturday but were knocked out of the finals after 5-4 penalty shoot-out.

Fantasy Analysis

Frei had a reserve role with Mainz 05 last season and couldn't offer much fantasy upside playing primarily as a holding midfielder. The 27-year-old tallied two assists and less than one shot per game in 18 Bundesliga appearances (11 starts).
