Fonte started four matches for Portugal during Euro 2016, tallying three clean sheets, three shots (two on target), four tackles and one yellow card on two fouls. He improves his international record to 15 caps with no goals yet. Portugal won Euro 2016 after a triumphant 1-0 extra-time victory in the final over the hosts France.

Fonte was an indispensable part of Southampton's defense last season. The 32-year-old center back played a major role in one of the top defenses in the league and helped bolster a six-straight-clean-sheets run at one point, though, he's not much of a fantasy factor outside the shutout performances. He finished the season with two goals, one assist, 11 clean sheets, 53 tackles and four yellow and one red cards.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Fonte helped secure a clean sheet during Wednesday's 2-0 semi-final victory over Wales.

Fonte did not enjoy his busiest 90 minutes, as Portugal made things tough on a Welsh side that was without Aaron Ramsey, but he held things together from a positional standpoint and helped book a place in the final. Portugal have allowed just one goal in 330 minutes since re-configuring its back line to include Fonte, and he should keep his place heading into Sunday's pivotal match versus the winner of Germany and France.

Fonte kept a clean sheet in Saturday's 1-0 victory in extra time over Croatia in the Round of 16 at the Euros.

The Southampton skipper turned in arguably his best performance of the Euros against Croatia, effectively batting back all of their attacks and not letting anything get on frame. His eight clearances and four interceptions were second on his team in both. He'll need another strong performance Thursday against the talented Polish attack in the quarterfinals.

Fonte tallied an assist in Sunday's 4-2 victory over Manchester City.

Fonte might not have been at his best defensively, but did provide a rare assist. That's now nine matches in a row for the Saints' skipper without a clean sheet while the assist was his first in 42 matches across all competitions.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Fonte (head) is starting Saturday against Aston Villa.

Fonte left last weekend's match after taking a knock to the head, but he was cleared to train this week and will take his regular spot in the starting XI against the Premier League's worst side.

Fonte (head) will be available for Saturday's match against Aston Villa, manager Ronald Koeman said Thursday.

Fonte left last weekend's match with the injury, which eventually forced him to be taken to the hospital for evaluation, but he returned to training this week and will likely take his normal starting spot alongside Virgil van Dijk.

Fonte was forced off with an injury in Saturdayís 1-1 draw versus Everton.

The official stopped the match for an apparent head injury and signaled for Fonte to receive treatment. According to the NBC Sports broadcast, Fonte was at the hospital with a possible concussion. Maya Yoshida replaced Fonte and will probably slot in his place if Fonte is unable to play due to the concussion. Southamptonís next match is Saturday versus Aston Villa.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Fonte was shown a direct red in the 80th minute of Saturday's 1-1 draw to Sunderland.

Fabio Borini beat Fonte to a through ball and in an attempt to get to the ball from behind the latter, actually, tackled the forward. Unfortunately for the central defender that was a last man tackle and he saw a direct red. The 32-year-old is facing a three-match ban and Maya Yoshida will probably slot in his place during the suspension. Fonte finished the game with 10 clearances, five interceptions and two fouls.
