Thiago Motta    M    Paris Saint-Germain
Motta made one tackle and picked up a yellow card in Monday’s 2-0 win over Spain. As a result, he will be suspended for Saturday’s matchup with Germany.

Fantasy Analysis

Motta made his fourth appearance at Euro 2016, his third as a substitute as he replaced Daniele De Rossi in the 54th minute. Expect to see De Rossi and Marco Parolo manning Italy’s center midfield in place of the suspended Motta.
Michy Batshuayi    F    Marseille
Batshuayi scored a goal and was issued a yellow card off the bench in Sunday's 4-0 victory over Hungary in the Round of 16 at the Euros.

Fantasy Analysis

After 23 goals and 10 assists for Olympique Marseille in Ligue 1 across all comps, Batshuayi is the odd-man-out up front in the starting XI. However, he was able to come in off the bench in the 76th minute and near-instantly change the game. Two minutes after coming on, he poked home an Eden Hazard cross to double Belgium's advantage and in just 15 minutes of play, helped Belgium grow their advantage from 1-0 to 4-0.
Gelson Fernandes    M    Rennes
Fernandes made three appearances off the bench for Switzerland in Euro 2016 committing three fouls and takes his international tally to 58 caps and two 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

Fernandes had a very solid campaign as a regular starter with Rennes last season. The 29-year-old holding midfielder, though, doesn't typically bring much fantasy upside and now he finished the season with one goal, one assist and eight yellow cards in 33 Ligue 1 starts.
Jacques Francois Moubandje    D    Toulouse
Moubandje didn't make an appearance for Switzerland in Euro 2016. He remains with 11 caps and no 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

Moubandje had a rotation player role with Toulouse last season. The 26-year-old left back had a minimal fantasy production even when on the field recording five clean sheets, 44 tackles, four yellow and one red cards in 23 Ligue 1 appearances (20 starts).
Kamil Grosicki    F    Rennes
Grosicki put in four crosses, attempted three shots and provided an assist in Saturday's win over Switzerland.

Fantasy Analysis

Grosicki was a bit fortunate to see his past land at Jakub Blaszczykowski's feet before the latter put Poland ahead in the 39th minute, but he was very effective nonetheless. He has alternated starts with bench appearances through the first four matches of the tournament, but Saturday's performance could very well earn him another start for Thursday's quarterfinal match versus Portugal.
Alejandro Bedoya    M    Nantes
Bedoya committed one foul in Saturday's Copa America Centenario third-place game 1-0 loss to Colombia. He finished the tournament with three shots (one on target), two fouls drawn and two yellow cards on 10 fouls in five starts and takes his international tally to 53 caps and two goals.

Fantasy Analysis

Bedoya had a rotation player role with Nantes last season. The 29-year-old winger managed to find some production, though, despite limited opportunities and finished the season with three goals, three assists and an average of 1.6 shots per game in 28 Ligue 1 appearances (22 starts).
Danijel Subasic    G    Monaco
Subasic made one save and conceded once in Saturday's 1-0 extra time defeat to Portugal in the Round of 16 at the Euros.

Fantasy Analysis

The Monaco keeper didn't see a shot on target for the first 100 minutes during a relatively dull game played virtually entirely in the middle-third of the pitch. However, at the end of the match, Portugal hit an extra gear and found the back of the net just three minutes shy of heading to penalties. After a strong season at Monaco, they'll begin in the third-qualification round of the Champions League next season as they look to build off last season's third place finish in Ligue 1.
Michy Batshuayi    F    Marseille
West Ham submitted a transfer offer of €35 million for Batshuayi, reports Sky Sports.

Fantasy Analysis

The forward is currently with Belgium at the Euro 2016 tournament, and has been attracting interest from a number of clubs. He scored 24 goals in Ligue 1 last season and is expected to make his decision after Euro 2016.
Ermir Lenjani    D    Nantes
Lenjani started all three matches for Albania in Euro 2016, totaling three shots off target, 10 crosses, five dribbles and four fouls. He takes his international tally to 22 caps with three goals. Albania finished third in Group A with three points but were still eliminated as the weakest third team.

Fantasy Analysis

Lenjani found playing time hard to come by last season with Nantes. Even when on the field, though, the 26-year-old left midfielder wasn't much effective recording merely one goal, one assist and averaging one shot per game in 20 Ligue 1 appearances (15 starts).
Lorik Cana    D    Nantes
Cana appeared twice (one start) during Euro 2016 for his country Albania recording a clean sheet, one shot on target and two yellow and one red cards on two fouls in a very quiet tournament for the star of the team. He takes his international tally to 93 caps with one goal. Albania finished third in Group A with three points but were still eliminated as the weakest third team.

Fantasy Analysis

Cana had a rotation player role last season with Nantes. The 32-year-old center back didn't have much to offer in fantasy either totaling for seven clean sheets, 28 tackles and five yellow cards in 21 Ligue 1 appearances (20 starts).
