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.

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.

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.

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.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Williams made an impressive 13 clearances and three interceptions on his way to helping Swansea record a clean sheet in their 1-0 home win against Aston Villa on Saturday.

Saturday's result against Villa went a long way to preserving Swansea's Premier League status for another season. Williams has been excellent over the last five games, averaging 11 clearances per outing, which has seen Swansea only concede five goals over that period.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

A few days after scoring the winner at Arsenal, Williams grabbed a clean sheet against Norwich City.

Williams hasn't missed a league match all season and is Swansea's most consistent defender. However, he still only has seven clean sheets on the season to go with two goals.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Williams won three tackles, made two interceptions and scored the only goal of Monday's 1-0 win over Watford.

The captain was exceptional in what was a Man of the Match performance, keeping the Swansea back line organized and thumping home a header in the 27th minute. Williams played a vital role in the win that lifted the Swans from the drop zone, and his leadership will be key in helping the club get back on track after a terrible first half of the season. He will try to carry this momentum into Sunday's match versus Everton.
