Swansea was able to keep their first clean sheet away from home in 11 games despite Jordan Ayew being sent off in the 11th minute in a 0-0 draw with Huddersfield.
Swansea was behind from the start following Jordan Ayew's red card for a reckless tackle on Johnathan Hogg. After the sending off, Carlos Carvalhal rallied the troops into a 5-3-1 formation to keep everything contained. Swansea relied on keeping nine men behind the ball and on key saves from Lukasz Fabianski but it was enough to pick up a crucial point in the relegation race. Mar 10 - 12:48 PM

Swansea City managed to win a goalfest last week but had no answers for Tottenham as Spurs scored five times unanswered to grab a 5-0 win.

It couldn't have been a much more one-sided affair. Tottenham managed over 20 shots on the day while Swansea mustered only one, which failed to go on target. The defense was exposed as the match wore on and the attack, which featured Gylfi Sigurdsson starting in a center forward role, had no answers. Despite conceding five, Lukasz Fabianski did well to keep the score from being even more embarrassing. Bob Bradley has been experimenting with several lineup variations but he is running out of combinations and the Swans look to be bad shape.

Poland finish second in their group and head to the knockout stage by scoring the only goal of the match from a substitute and keeping yet another clean sheet in a 1-0 win over Ukraine.

While Poland led all countries in scoring during the qualifiers leading up to this tournament, the attack has been mediocre at best and it has been the defending that has helped them out of their group. It almost reminds one of Leicester City, who were able to adapt from a team that relied on scoring to a team that got results from outstanding defending. The lone goal came from Jakub Blaszczykowski, who began the game on the bench, in the 55th minute, as he was fed the ball from a short corner and fired home. Rack up another clean sheet for Swansea's Lukasz Fabianski as we should see this same Polish defense lining up for their Round of 16 match in a few days.

Lukasz Fabianski came up with a big save on former teammate Mesut Ozil and powered Poland to a nil-nil draw with defending World Cup champions Germany.

Germany hadn't been held scoreless since 2004 in European Championship play but Poland did the trick with a determined effort that saw the Poles the better team for much of the match. When Germany did get their big chance, Ozil produced a good shot but Fabianski was up to the challenge. The result eliminated Ukraine from the group with Germany and Poland tied at four points atop the group after two matches and Northern Ireland a point behind in third. Germany will face Northern Ireland in the final group stage match while Poland will face eliminated Ukraine.

Swansea City are still working toward turning their season around, but they have earned their fourth point in 48 hours in a hard-fought 0-0 draw with Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park.

Interim manager Alan Curtis rang in the changes big time, making eight changes in total, with only Lukasz Fabianski, Ashley Williams and Neil Taylor keeping their places. Once again, they looked rather dim in the final third but were also victim of a couple of quality saves by Wayne Hennessey. Fabianski did well himself though, stopping what was perhaps the best chance for either side by keeping out a Brede Hangeland header from close range. With three clean sheets in a row, the Swans defense is turning it around after having kept just one in their first sixteen gameweeks.

Lukasz Fabianski has generally been very good since arriving at Swansea but he botched a high ball into his box and Laurent Koscielny pounced on it for Arsenal's second goal on the road to a 3-0 loss to the Polish goalkeeper's former team.

Fabianski looked like he'd gotten the better of his move to Wales last season when the Swans won both ties against Arsenal. In the first match of the 2015-16 season it's Fabianski who has egg on his face after a poor effort led to Arsenal's second goal which essentially ended the match as a contest. Fabianski certainly wasn't the only guilty party as the Swans completely switched off on Arsenal's first goal when a Mesut Ozil corner kick found an unmarked Olivier Giroud in the middle of the box for an easy header. The loss continues the Swans' poor recent form and will likely keep the "will Garry Monk lose his job?" narrative alive for at least another week.

Lukasz Fabianski has inked a contract extension that will see the goalkeeper remain with Swansea City for the next four years.

Fabianski was very solid in his first season with the Swans, and he ranked at or near the top of the best keepers across all fantasy formats. It seems to be a perfect fit for him and the club so a long extension was worked out. Kristoffer Nordfeldt was brought in over the summer but strictly as a backup. There should be little challenge from him to take the #1 shirt away. Not that you needed any further reason to pursue him in fantasy, but Fabianski should be settled in for another fine campaign.

Swansea City have signed goalkeeper Kristoffer Nordfeldt to a three year contract after agreeing to a transfer with Eredivisie side Heerenveen for an undisclosed fee.

Having let Gerhard Tremmel go at the beginning of the offseason, the Swans were in the market for a new backup to Lukasz Fabianksi and they found their man in the 26-year-old Swede, who has five caps for his country. He was statistically one of the better keepers in the Eredivisie last season and should provide more upside if Fabianksi has to miss any time than Tremmel could. The Swans now have three signings already this summer and it is not even July 1.

Lucasz Fabianski was incredible against Arsenal and ended up as the highest scoring goalkeeper of the week.

Fabianski is the highest scoring goalkeeper in the Yahoo! game so far this season and the win against Arsenal showed why. He registered nine saves, a clean sheet, and a win on the way to 28 fantasy points. Despite the great performance, Fabianski faces off against Manchester City next weekend and we'll have to temper our expectations. He is not an option to use next week outside of deep or season-long leagues.

Swansea City are about to embark on a kind run of fixtures, increasing the value of all of their fantasy assets.

The Swans endured a rough patch in their schedule but still managed to collect wins against the likes of Manchester United and Southampton, cementing themselves in the top half of the table. They face a test hosting Liverpool next, though it is at home, then enjoy Aston Villa, Hull City, Everton and Leicester City immediately thereafter. This makes the idea of investing in someone like Lukasz Fabianski a legit one for several weeks. Even if he has a poor score against the Reds, it should only lead to a more attractive price for the following four matches.

Swansea goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski has lost his appeal for his suspension to be overturned.

Fabianki was sent off in Swansea's 3-1 loss against West Ham United for denying a clear goal scoring opportunity but appealed the red card. The FA denied the appeal and Fabianski will miss the next match. Gerhard Tremmel will likely fill in and could be an option for those adventurous enough to experiment with a £ 1.00M goalkeeper. That should open up funds for an overall elite squad elsewhere.

Swansea goalkeeper Lucasz Fabianski was sent off in the team's 3-1 loss to West Ham United.

The goalkeeper rushed out to try and prevent Diafra Sakho from scoring but the referee decided that Fabianski illegally prevented Sakho from a clear goalscoring opportunity and sent him off. Some replays suggest Sakho may have used his hand in handling the ball right before but the referee did not see that. Fabianski will be suspended for one match and Gerhard Tremmel should start in his place. The negative 11 points Fabianski had today has brought his price down to £ 6.52M, which would make him a good investment once he returns.

Lukasz Fabianski is currently the second best goalkeeper in the Yahoo! fantasy game.

Fabianski has been very good this season and that's partly due to his team beating up on bad opposition and partly due to his fantastic play. The problem is that Swansea face Arsenal and Manchester City next and Fabianski isn't likely to continue getting clean sheets. We expect a serious regression here and we would avoid him in the next two matches.

Lukasz Fabianski has continued his impressive season for Swansea and helped them keep a clean sheet over the weekend.

Swansea faced a poor Leicester City side at home but it was still a good outing for Fabianski who was able to save four shots. The ex-Arsenal goalkeeper is third amongst goalkeepers in fantasy scoring this season behind Thibaut Courtois and Fraser Forster. Swansea don't have a good enough defense to make Fabianski match-up proof but he remains a fantastic option against teams in the lower half of the table.

Lukasz Fabianski has enjoyed a successful switch from Arsenal to Swansea City so far this season and it has put him at the top of the leaderboard for goalkeepers in the first six weeks of the Yahoo game.

Fabianski was a highly touted goalkeeping option in the preseason by the Rotoworld staff, given his minuscule price tag, and the faith has paid off so far. In fact, though the keeper position can be a volatile one, budget options have been paying off so far this season. Of the top five scoring keepers to date in Yahoo, only one is from a traditional top 6 club, and that is Thibaut Courtois, who was given a cheap opening price tag himself. Expect the balance to shift somewhat over the course of the season, but six matches should be enough of a sample size to feel some trust in investing in keepers like Fabianski, who just so happens to be home this weekend to a reeling Newcastle side.
