Hennessey started five matches for Wales during Euro 2016, hauling in 14 saves and two clean sheets while conceding five goals. He takes his international record to 62 caps. Wales' fantastic run in the tournament ended in the semifinals after a 2-0 defeat by Portugal.

Hennessey won the starting job at goal with Crystal Palace over Julian Speroni last season. The 29-year-old keeper, though, wasn't very effective and with the Eagles earning clean sheets rarely his fantasy upside wasn't too high. He finished the season with eight clean sheets and 80 saves in 29 Premier League starts.

July 6, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Hennessey was beaten twice despite making four saves in Wednesday's loss to Portugal.

Hennessey and company put up another spirited fight, but he was no match for a thundering header from Cristiano Ronaldo that was followed just two minutes later by a crafty deflection by Nani to cap off the scoring. Hennessey allowed just five goals in five matches, conceding multiple times only to England and Portugal, and although his tournament is over, he and his mates enjoyed a remarkable run to the semi-finals.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Hennessey made four saves and conceded just once during Friday's 3-1 win over Belgium.

Despite being under pressure from a talented Belgian side, but Hennessey made a couple of crucial saves to preserve a one-goal lead until his side salted away the win with a late goal. Hennessey has been a crucial member of the fairy tale run to the semi-finals, allowing just three goals in the four matches he has started, and another strong performance will be needed in Wednesday's match versus Portugal, with the right to go to the championship match on the line.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Hennessey secured a clean sheet in Wales' 1-0 win over Northern Ireland on Saturday. Hennessey made three saves for his second straight clean sheet.

Wales weren't expected to have a good defense coming into the tournament, but have now held Russia and Northern Ireland scoreless in back-to-back matches. Surely, Hennessey will get a harder test next in the quarterfinals with Belgium the likely opponent.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Hennessey stopped both shots he faced in Monday's 3-0 victory over Russia.

Wales dominated the game and were on the front foot for most of the time, leaving Hennessey with little to do as Wales secured top spot in the group. Hennessey did not feature in the opening match versus Slovakia and was beaten twice versus England, but his side tightened things up at the back Monday and he enjoyed a much better result. Wales are riding high at the moment after a successful opening round at their first Euro tournament in 58 years, and they will face the third-place nation from Group A, C or D Saturday as the knockout phase commences.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Hennessey wasn't challenged all that often against England, but when he was, he allowed the final goal in the closing minutes of a 2-1 loss. Hennessey finished with two saves in the game.

Wales have played well this tournament, but defensively still lack that extra level. Against a desperate Russia team next match, expect more goals to be allowed by Hennessey.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Crystal Palace beat Stoke City 2-1, but Hennessey couldn't secure the clean sheet to go with two saves.

It has been a rough close to the season for Crystal Palace, but a win here should give them confidence going into the final match at Southampton. However, it still wouldn't be wise to use Hennessey in fantasy.

May 1, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Hennessey made three saves in Saturday's 1-0 loss to Newcastle.

Hennessey couldn't do much about a brilliant Andros Townsend's free kick. He did well, though, to keep his team in contention the rest of the game with the Magpies pushing hard in a desperate need of the win. The Eagles have suffered an improbable fall in their form from the beginning of the season which has significantly hampered the keeper's fantasy value for a while now. Hennessey, however, will be hoping to get a nice rebound on Saturday when the Eagles are taking on the dreadful, of late, Potters.
