Hennessey made four saves in Saturday's 1-0 loss to Tottenham Hotspur.

It's the second time in as many weeks that Hennessey and the Eagles have been sunk by a goal after 80 minutes. Though he appears to still be Palace's No. 1 despite the club's signing of Steve Mandanda, Hennessey is a subpar option in goal as of right now.

Wayne Hennessey: Past News Updates   ( ▲ View most recent update )

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Hennessey made a pair of stops in Saturday's 1-0 loss to West Bromwich Albion.

He couldn't do much on Salomon Rondon's header, but just the two saves is a disappointing, yet expected total against a conservative WBA side. With new signing Steve Mandanda waiting in the wings, Hennsessey's spot is by no means locked down. There are several better options at keeper.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Hennessey is in the starting XI for Saturday's match with West Bromwich Albion.

Hennessey gets the start in net ahead of Julian Speroni and new signing, Steve Mandanda. Crystal Palace have a plethora of keepers at their disposal as Wayne Hennessey will open the season as the starting goalkeeper.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

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.

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.
