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.

Arsenal may be eliminated from the title race, but a home match against Norwich easily puts Petr Cech on top of the goalkeeper rankings this week.

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.

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.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Hennessey (knock) will have a late fitness test for Sunday's match against Liverpool.

Hennessey has been between the sticks for the team's past 22 matches and after a strong start, he has seen the team slide from as high as fifth on the table at the start of 2016 to 14th. If he can't go, look for Julian Speroni to get the nod in his place.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Hennessey made four saves and let in two goals on Tuesday night in a 2-2 draw with Sunderland.

With the Palace defense sputtering as part of this second half swoon, it's hard to trust Hennessey as a fantasy keeper option. Though a deflection on the first goal rendered him helpless, and the second goal was just a perfectly placed strike, there are better available keepers out there right now.
