Hennessey (knee) played the full 90 minutes keeping a clean sheet for Wales in Monday's World Cup qualifier 4-0 win over Moldova.

Hennessey is quickly back from his minor injury concern denying the inferior side of Moldova from any hope for a consolation notch. However, despite this solid display his situation in Crystal Palace is still a conundrum. Once he returns to Premier League action he'll have to face the fierce competition of Steve Mandanda for the starting spot at goal. None of them has been particularly impressive in their starts and the decision may come at game-time.

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

August 27, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Hennessey (knee) is not in the 18-man squad on Saturday against Bournemouth.

Steve Mandanda will get the start for Palace, a situation that will likely continue as long as he's fit, pushing Hennessey into a reserve role.

August 26, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Hennessey is dealing with a minor knock and may not be ready for Saturday's match against Bournemouth.

If Hennessey can't go, it's likely Steve Mandanda would get the start after he held a clean sheet midweek in the League Cup match. At home against Bournemouth, either goalkeeper will have some value.

August 20, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

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.

August 13, 2016

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.

July 10, 2016

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.

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.
