Buffon conceded one goal and had zero saves in a 2-1 win over Fiorentina on Saturday.

Buffon was not called upon often, as Fiorentina only mustered four shots in the match. However, the one shot on target evaded him, as he was unable to stop the close-range header from Nikola Kalinic off of a corner kick. He should face a few more shots when he visits Lazio on August 27th.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Buffon made two saves and was beaten once in Saturday's shootout loss to Germany.

The ageless 'keeper was beaten in the early stages of the second half by a close-range effort, but he otherwise was effective again and helped his side hang in the game until they eventually lost in penalties. Buffon had a fantastic tournament, only allowing one goal in four games played, and he appears primed for another strong season with Juventus as they get back in action in August.

Buffon was not forced to make any saves during Friday's 1-0 victory over Sweden.

Italy's defensive scheme worked to perfection Friday, as they blanketed Zlatan Ibrahimovic and limited Sweden to just four total shots, all off target. Buffon is still playing at a high level, but the strength of the defensive-minded side in front of him boosts his fantasy value even further. He will look to finish the group stage with a perfect defensive record in Wednesday's fixture with Ireland.

Buffon stopped all three shots he faced during Monday's 2-0 win over Belgium.

Facing what was considered the toughest opponent in the group, the Italians executed their game plan to perfection and frustrated the Belgian attackers. Buffon wasn't forced into any big-time saves, but he was aided by several misfires from in close and was able to do enough to preserve the clean sheet. Coming off an excellent club season with Juventus, Buffon should be a strong fantasy play throughout the tournament due to Italy's defensive-minded style and their pedigree for performing on the biggest stages.

Buffon had an excellent season, leading the Biancaneri to a Serie A record 29 wins while compiling a defensive record 12 goals better than the closest competitor.

Buffon's current contract runs for two more seasons, and he is currently preparing to participate in Euro 2016 with the Italian national team this summer before reprising his role as Serie A's top shot-stopper.
