By National Team:

Brian Rowe    G    Los Angeles Galaxy
Rowe made five saves in a 0-0 draw with Colorado on Wednesday.

Fantasy Analysis

Rowe has a combined 14 saves and just one goal against in his last three appearances. Up next is in-state rival San Jose Earthquakes, who are in the midst of a 13 game undefeated streak at home and are unbeaten in their last three home matches against the Galaxy.
John Guidetti    F    Celta Vigo
Guidetti made three appearances (one start) for Sweden in Euro 2016, recording one shot off target, one dribble and one foul. His international goes up to 12 caps and one goal. Sweden were knocked out finishing dead-last in Group E with one point and the only goal they scored came on opponents' own goal.

Fantasy Analysis

Guidetti couldn't win out a regular starting spot for Celta Vigo last season, nevertheless, he was still heavily involved in play. The 24-year-old forward managed to find some fantasy production, despite limited playing time, as well scoring seven goals and averaging one shot per game in 35 La Liga appearances (12 starts).
Oscar Hiljemark    M    Palermo
Hiljemark didn't make an appearance for Sweden in Euro 2016. His international tally remains at 10 caps and one goal. Sweden were knocked out finishing dead-last in Group E with one point and the only goal they scored came on opponents' own goal.

Fantasy Analysis

Hiljemark was a key cog in the middle of the park for Palermo last season. The 23-year-old central midfielder also had a solid fantasy production scoring four goals and assisting on five more occasions while making an appearance in all 38 Serie A matches (36 starts).
Albin Ekdal    M    Hamburger SV
Ekdal made three appearances (two starts) for Sweden in Euro 2016, recording two shots, with one on target, two crosses, three dribbles and a yellow card on three fouls. His international tally goes up to 25 caps with no goals. Sweden were knocked out finishing dead-last in Group E with one point and the only goal they scored came on opponents' own goal.

Fantasy Analysis

Ekdal found regular playing time hard to come by for Hamburger last season. Even when on the field, though, the 26-year-old didn't offer much fantasy production playing primarily as a holding midfielder. He tallied four yellow cards with no goals or assists in 14 Bundesliga starts.
Sebastian Larsson    M    Sunderland
Larsson made all three starts for Sweden in Euro 2016, combining a total of one shot off target, 10 crosses, one dribble and six fouls. He takes his international tally to 87 caps and six goals. Sweden were knocked out finishing dead-last in Group E with one point and the only goal they scored came on opponents' own goal.

Fantasy Analysis

Larsson took a step back last season and lost out his regular starting spot for Sunderland. The 31-year-old still offers a nice versatility in the middle of the park but his fantasy upside would be very limited off the bench. He recorded merely one assist in 18 Premier League appearances (six starts).
Emil Forsberg    M    RB Leipzig
Forsberg made all three starts for Sweden in Euro 2016, combining a total of two shots off target, three crosses, three dribbles and two fouls. He takes his international tally to 20 caps and two goals. Sweden were knocked out finishing dead-last in Group E with one point and the only goal they scored came on opponents' own goal.

Fantasy Analysis

Forsberg was a key cog in RB Leipzig's promotion-winning campaign last season scoring eight goals in 32 Bundesliga II appearances. The 24-year-old creative midfielder will bring a variety of skills and good fantasy potential if he remains a regular starter for the club in Bundesliga.
Pontus Jansson    D    Torino
Jansson didn't make an appearance for Sweden in Euro 2016. His international tally remains at eight caps with no goals. Sweden were knocked out finishing dead-last in Group E with one point and the only goal they scored came on opponents' own goal.

Fantasy Analysis

Jansson was just a fringe player for Torino last season. The 25-year-old center back barely collected a goal, a clean sheet and five tackles in seven Serie A appearances (six starts). He isn't going to be much of a fantasy factor unless he earns a more prominent role with the club.
Zac MacMath    G    Colorado Rapids
MacMath made four saves in a 0-0 draw with the LA Galaxy on Wednesday.

Fantasy Analysis

MacMath now has six clean sheets on the season and is tied for most shutouts in MLS with Clint Irwin. The Rapids have let in a league low 11 goals through 16 games and are back in action on July 4th versus Portland.
Axel Sjoberg    D    Colorado Rapids
Sjoberg had 12 clearances in a 0-0 draw with the Galaxy on Wednesday. He also picked up a yellow card on his only foul committed.

Fantasy Analysis

The towering center back has been a key ingredient to a Rapids defense that has allowed a league low 11 goals through 16 games played. Despite his 6-foot-7 frame, he's only scored one goal in 28 appearances and is best suited for fantasy formats that encourage defensive contributions.
Sunny    M    Real Salt Lake
Sunny is out at least six weeks with multiple facial fractures, according to Chris Kamrani of The Salt Lake Tribune.

Fantasy Analysis

Sunny suffered the facial fractures Wednesday, when he collided with the Red Bulls goalkeeper Luis Robles. He is expected to miss not less than six weeks, and he will likely be replaced by John Stertzer in the starting lineup.
