MLS Fantasy 2018 - Round 24 Picks

Hello MLS Fantasy managers, and happy match day! It's been a soccer-filled Saturday, and I'm sure many of you have been enjoying the first weekend of Premiere League action, but that's just a mere appetizer to the Major League Soccer action we've got going on this weekend! Plenty of teams are jockeying for positioning in the playoff hunt, which means all of the big names should be on the pitch this weekend and in consideration for your fantasy lineups.

With salaries having been reset to $100m last week, it's been quite the challenge to puzzle together a competitive team while remaining under the salary cap. Nonetheless, we feel as though we've pieced together a very competitive team this weekend - check out our picks below!

MLS Fantasy 2018 - Parsing The Percentages, Round 22

Happy matchday and warm welcome to all MLS Fantasy Managers! Round 22 has arrived with yet another full slate of midweek action as we kick off on a Wednesday Night once again. With nine teams playing twice this round, we will focus on two teams amongst this group whom we feel will provide significant returns on both legs this week. We’ve actually got a bit of a ‘coastal elite’ theme going on this week as we’ve selected the New York Red Bulls and the LA Galaxy as our two clubs this week. So without further ado, let’s get right to it!

MLS Fantasy 2018 - Round 21 DGW Power Rankings: Minnesota, New England

What's up MLS Fantasy managers?! The final week of the MLS Fantasy 2018 spring season is upon us, and Round 21 continues the trend of midweek matches as Minnesota United FC hosts a short-staffed New England Revolution.

As usual, we've taken stock of both squads this week in order to put together some DGW Power Rankings. With Cristian Penilla, Luis Caicedo, and Antonio Delamea all suspended for Wednesday's match followed by a tough trip to Red Bull Arena on Saturday, we're strongly favoring Minnesota players this week... but there is still some New England value to be had for managers feeling bold.

We're targeting a range of 4-5 players on double-duty for our lineup this weekend - here's where we rank them!

MLS Fantasy 2018 - Parsing The Percentages, Round 21

Happy Round 21 to all MLS Fantasy Managers, and congratulations on the completion of the spring portion of the 2018 MLS Fantasy season! After the excitement of the World Cup and seeing France crowned, Soccer Captains is back at ya with our Parsing the Percentages series. Tim had you guys covered earlier this week for the two teams on double-duty this week (MNU & NER), so we will be focusing clubs only participating in a single match this weekend. We’re also going to throw a bit of a wrinkle in here: we’re going with clubs that do not fall on the “Usual Suspects” list that includes Atlanta, RBNY, and Portland… instead, we’re going with clubs that should allow you to diversify your lineup a bit and provide value in the last 2-3 slots in your lineups. Therefore, we’re going with Real Salt Lake at home against Colorado and Columbus at home against Orlando. So without further ado - let's dive in!

Good day everyone and happy Round 20 of the MLS Fantasy season! We’ve got yet another early start this round as NYCFC, Chicago, and Montreal each have a double-game-week slate. This week, we will focus on NYCFC and Chicago as we look to employ the services of as many double game week players that will fit into our lineups, so that they can take advantage of each game.

MLS Fantasy 2018 - Round 19 DGW Power Rankings: Houston & LAFC

All right gang, we've got our first Tuesday Night match of the season, with LAFC traveling to H-town to take on the Dynamo at 8pm EST tonight!

Given that these two squads are the only two participating on the first night, we've decided to take the fantasy-relevant players from both squads and rank them for you! We'll be taking anywhere from 4 to 6 players in total from the below list for our squad this week, given the strength of their matchups on the far leg of this round... and we highly recommend filling out your bench with at least two players from this group as switcheroo picks!
