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.

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.

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.

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.

Hennessey made five saves during Sunday's 1-1 draw with Arsenal.

Hennessey's goal was under siege early and often, but he put forth a strong performance that allowed his side to hang in long enough to salvage a draw. The 'keeper has been in great form of late, having allowed just four goals in his last six matches, and he will carry that momentum into Wednesday's fixture with Manchester United.

Hennessey made four saves en route to a clean sheet in Saturday's 1-0 win over Norwich.

Hennessey snaped a 13 game winless streak in Premier League with a fantastic game and even added a very rare clean sheet to his game tally. The Canaries were no pushovers and put up a serious fight but the Palace keeper was sure-handed and took his team in a safe distance from the relegation zone. Despite this excellent performance, though, his fantasy perspective on the immediate horizon is not very bright with fixtures, in the next couple of weeks, against Everton, Arsenal and Man Utd in succession.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Hennessey conceded two goals while making four saves in Saturday's 2-2 draw versus West Ham.

Hennessey was caught guessing on the goal off a free kick by West Ham's Dimitri Payet. Hennessey has a chance for his first clean sheet in league play since late December, as Crystal Palace faces Norwich City Saturday, another squad battling relegation.
