Sigurdsson made two key passes and had 3 shots on target but could not help Swansea slump to a 0-2 home loss to Hull on Saturday.

Sigurdsson returned to the starting line-up after his exploits for Iceland in Euro 2016 and he looked the most likely for Swansea to make the breakthrough forcing a fingertip save onto the crossbar from Jakupovic in the Hull goal. Whatever the fantasy format, Sigurdsson is always a good pick-up.

August 15, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Sigurdsson came off the bench for the last 30 minutes of Swansea's 0-1 win against Burnley at Turf Moor on Saturday.

Deemed not fit enough to start, Sigurdsson eased himself back into the fold with a tidy second half display for the Swans. A consistent fantasy performer, expect him to be in the points again this season regardless of the fantasy format.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Sigurdsson is on the bench for Swansea City's visit to Burnley on Saturday.

Sigurdsson is not in the starting XI Saturday but could be include later as a substitute. After Iceland's extended run in Euro 2016, Sigurdsson was forced to report to Swansea's training camp later than most players, which may explain his absence from the starting XI against Burnley. When Sigurdsson is on the pitch he has high fantasy value.

August 12, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Sigurdsson could be rested for Saturday's Premier League opener against Burnley after his participation in the European Championship this summer, Wales Online reports.

Sigurdsson is expected to be a major focal point of the Swans' attack this season, but he didn't get a full preseason in thanks to Iceland's surprisingly deep run in this summer's tournament, so manager Francesco Guidolin appears ready to sit him for one game to ensure he's fit for the rest of the term.

August 2, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Sigurdsson signed a four-year contract extension with Swansea City on Tuesday.

Sigurdsson had two more years left on his old contract, but the Swans locked him up for the additional time with the aim of keeping him in Wales for as long as they can. The Icelandic midfielder has been tremendous for Swansea over the past few seasons, and he'll be the main cog in their attack again this season.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Sigurdsson won two tackles and provided an assist from two crosses in Sunday's loss to France.

Sigurdsson wasn't as impactful as normal against a superior France side, but he was able to whip in a cross to help his team get on the board after going down four goals in the first half. Sigurdsson was one of Iceland's most influential players this tournament, despite finishing with just one goal and one assist from five matches, and he will now turn his attention to sorting out his future at club level.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Sigurdsson had one shot on target, four tackles, and a yellow card in Monday’s 2-1 upset over England.

Sigurdsson continues to be a key part of Iceland’s Euro 2016 success. He has started all four matches and will have a great chance to start Sunday’s quarterfinal against France. He has one assist and one yellow card so far in the tournament.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Sigurdsson converted a penalty kick in Saturday's 1-1 draw with Hungary.

While the penalty was garnered under somewhat dubious circumstances, the Swansea starlet took one step on his run-up and left no doubts, rocketing the ball into the bottom corner. This was Sigurdsson's 14th goal for Iceland in 41 caps and had a chance to make it 15 as time expired, but he blasted his free kick at the precipice of the penalty area right into the wall. He'll need to show his quality once again in the final match of the group stage against Austria.
