Shaqiri started in all four matches for Switzerland in Euro 2016. He tallied one goal on 10 shots (four on target), one assist on 29 crosses, five dribbles and nine fouls and takes his international tally to 17 goals in 56 caps. 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.

Shaqiri was a solid addition to the Stoke squad last season, though, he suffered multiple injuries that reduced his overall fantasy production and were hampering his form. The 24-year-old creative midfielder, though, still had a decent production and he always brings a high upside. He finished the season with three goals, six assists and an average of 1.5 shots per game in 27 Premier League starts.

Xherdan Shaqiri: Past News Updates   ( ▲ View most recent update )

June 26, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Shaqiri put in 15 crosses and scored a goal on three shots during Saturday's win over Poland.

Shaq was looking to set up teammates often Saturday, but his best contribution came on a highlight-reel overhead strike off the post an in to tie the game in the 82nd minute. Unfortunately, Switzerland couldn't complete the comeback and lost in a shootout, ending his tournament with a goal and an assist to his name after four matches.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Shaqiri landed two shots on target, put in two crosses and assisted on the only goal in Saturday's win over Albania.

The attacker didn't find an incredible amount of room to operate Saturday, but his corner in the fifth minute found the head of Fabian Schar for the goal that would ultimately earn his side the three points. Shaqiri will be relied upon as one of the few viable attacking threats for the Swiss side, and he should be front and center for Wednesday's matchup versus Romania.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Shaqiri (hamstring) has been ruled out for Saturday's match against Manchester City.

After being withdrawn at halftime against Spurs with a hamstring concern, Shaqiri has been ruled out for Saturday's match as well. The big-ticket signing from Inter Milan this summer hasn't quite had the influence on the side week-in and week-out the team might've hoped. He'll look to recover in time to finish the season off strong to build off his three goals and six assists in 30 matches across all comps.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Shaqiri was taken off from Monday's match against Tottenham at halftime because of a hamstring injury, the Stoke Sentinel reports.

The severity of Shaqiri's injury is still unclear, though the quick turnaround to Saturday's match against Manchester City does him no favors.

April 10, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Shaqiri tallied an assist in Sunday's 4-1 defeat to Liverpool.

Shaqiri exploited Liverpool's weakness in defending set pieces, finding Bojan Krkic for the Potters only goal. Shaqiri missed the past two matches with an injury, but when he's in the lineup, he's a good source of assists (Sunday's was his seventh in the Premier League), but doesn't provide much of a goal-scoring threat.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Shaqiri could return from his thigh injury Sunday against Liverpool, the Stoke Sentinel reports.

Shaqiri has been a huge piece of the Stoke attack this season, though as more of a facilitator than a goal scorer. His fantasy upside is higher in formats that give points for peripheral stats, particularly since he's on most corners and set pieces.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Shaqiri (thigh) will miss the Swansea match Saturday, according to manager Mark Hughes.

Shaqiri has been one of Stoke's best fantasy players this season, but that's not saying much. Even in a favorable matchup, Marko Arnautovic may be the only Stoke midfielder worth a look. Due to injuries, Charlie Adam or Giannelli Imbula could get a start.
