Taylor started all six matches for Wales during Euro 2016, tallying one goal on five shots (three on target), 15 crosses, four tackles and one yellow card on eight fouls. He takes his international record to 34 caps and one goal. Wales' fantastic run in the tournament ended in the semifinals after a 2-0 defeat by Portugal.

Taylor was a regular starter with Swansea last season. The 27-year-old wing back, unlike for Wales, played as a left back with the Swans where he was much less successful and productive and could only find some decent fantasy value in formats with peripheral defensive stats finishing the season with one assist, eight clean sheets and 41 tackles in 34 Premier League appearances (33 starts).

Fresh off a two-goal outing Sunday against Aston Villa, Harry Kane takes one of the top spots in this week's positional rankings thanks to a home matchup against Bournemouth.

Neil Taylor: Past News Updates   ( ▲ View most recent update )

June 25, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Taylor and the Wales back line held Northern Ireland scoreless in Saturday's 1-0 win. Taylor didn't have a tackle, but had a shot, showing his activity on the left side.

Taylor has provided the speed along the left side for Wales and had an important block on a cross late in the match. Wales will have a tough task in the quarterfinals with Belgium looking like the next opponent.

June 20, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Taylor attempted three shots and scored the second goal in Monday's 3-0 win over Russia.

Taylor was deployed in a wide role as Wales operated with three at the back, creeping forward in the 20th minute to land a shot on target and tuck his own rebound to put his side up two. Taylor is something of a peripheral character in the attack as Gareth Bale and Aaron Ramsey handle most of the workload, but he could provide some added value in formats that list him as a defender if he continues to play in a midfield role.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Taylor (groin) won't be available for Swansea's last two matches, according to manager Francesco Guidolin.

Taylor and Ashley Williams will both miss the remainder of the campaign for Swansea on the back line. Don't expect much from the defense in a match at West Ham and against Manchester City.

April 9, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Taylor was back in the starting lineup Saturday against Chelsea and helped the Swans keep a clean sheet in a 1-0 win.

Taylor hasn't seen consistent time in the past month, but provided plenty of value after getting a clean sheet against Chelsea. Swansea has a road match next weekend, but is in a favorable situation against Newcastle.

March 5, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Taylor recorded a clean sheet against Norwich City on Saturday, but also added a yellow card.

Taylor has been healthy all year, but isn't as active as his similarly-priced teammate, Ashley Williams. The Swansea defense is only worth a look in home matches against weaker competition.

April 30, 2015

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Taylor (suspension) will be available for Saturday's match against Stoke City.

Taylor had already made 31 Premier League starts before his suspension and it seems likely that he'll assume that same role yet again Saturday despite his recent stint off the pitch.

April 17, 2015

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Taylor has been suspended for the next two matches since he received his 10th yellow card against Everton on Saturday.

Taylor won't be eligible to return for manager Garry Monk until May 2 against Stoke City in Premiere league play. This leaves Monk in a bind since Taylor was the last viable option at left-back with no obvious replacement for the next two matches.
