Williams started all six matches for Wales during Euro 2016, scoring one goal on seven shots, with two on target and adding 11 tackles and five fouls. He takes his international record to two goals in 65 caps. Wales' fantastic run in the tournament ended in the semifinals after a 2-0 defeat by Portugal.

Williams was excellent bolstering the Swansea squad in a trying campaign last season. The 31-year-old center back held a decent fantasy upside, as well, as he finished the season with two goals, one assist, nine clean sheets and 68 tackles in 36 Premier League starts.

July 2, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Williams won three tackles, attempted four shots and scored his side's opening goal in Friday's 3-1 win over Belgium.

The central defender got forward and was a menace on set-pieces, connecting with an Aaron Ramsey cross to pull even in the 30th minute. Williams has been essential to Wales' fairy tale run to the semi-finals, as he has helped his side produce a defensive record of 0.8 goals against per game in addition to his crucial strike, and he will look to help secure another improbable win as they take on Portugal Wednesday.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Williams returned to training Tuesday after suffering a bruised shoulder during Saturday's win over Northern Ireland, and he could play in Wales' Euro 2016 quarterfinal match against Belgium on Friday, Sky Sports reports.

Williams has been a rock for the Wales back line, and his return will certainly be a boost against the high-powered Belgium attack. That being said, he gets most of his fantasy value through peripheral defensive stats, making him a fairly low-upside players.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Williams and the Wales back line held Northern Ireland scoreless in Saturday's 1-0 win. Williams was great again, but injured his shoulder toward the end of the match and his status is in doubt for the quarterfinal game. Wales won't know the extent of his injury until scans on Sunday.

Williams has been vital for Wales in their success at the Euros and without him, things won't be the same. Williams couldn't move his arm after injuring it, so it's definitely an injury to monitor ahead of the quarters.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Williams secured four interceptions and captained his side to a clean sheet during Monday's 3-0 victory over Russia.

Williams played well positionally and helped his side claim top spot in the group by finishing with just three goals against through the first stage. The skipper doesn't venture forward with regularity, making him fairly reliant on matchups versus weaker opponents to generate fantasy value. That said, he could carry some appeal into Saturday's match versus the third-place finisher from Group A, C or D.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

After playing in every match of the campaign, Williams will be rested for the final two matches, according to manager Francesco Guidolin.

With little to play for, Swansea are sitting a few of their stars for the final two matches. That said, Swans defenders don't have much value in those matches, traveling to West Ham and home to Manchester City in the finale.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Williams and the Swansea back line kept a clean sheet en route to a 1-0 home win over Chelsea on Saturday.

Williams has been great in fantasy as of late. In addition to Swansea's three straight home clean sheets, Williams has added a goal and assist in two of the last three road matches.

April 2, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Williams had one assist and conceded four fouls in Saturday's 2-2 draw at Stoke.

He also picked up sixth yellow card of the season. Though the Swansea captain is an first-choice center back, this was just his first assist of the year. Williams has started all 32 games, but the tackles and clean sheet number aren't where you'd want them to be for Williams to find his way into your lineup.
