MLS Fantasy 2018 - Parsing The Percentages, Round 16

What’s up fantasy managers?! Kevin from SoccerCaptains back at you with a quick turnaround ahead of MLS Fantasy Round 16 – we’re hot off the presses with our weekly Parsing the Percentages piece!

Round 16 features a mere six matches, all taking place on Wednesday night (June 13th) – so the player pool is considerably smaller this round. The oddsmakers seem to favor Toronto FC and the ever-potent NY Red Bulls this week, so we’ll seeing a heavy presence from both squads in our lineups.

So, without further ado, let us slide into this week’s analysis!

MLS Fantasy 2018 - Round 15 Picks

Happy Matchday and Happy Friday, MLS Fantasy managers! Round 15 is here, kicking off once again on a Friday night as Toronto travels to Chester, PA to take on a shorthanded Philadelphia Union club.

While we don't have to contend with any clubs on double-duty this week, we've still got players away on international duty and the US Open Cup to think about when crafting our lineups this weekend.

That being said, after seeing the midweek workloads for MLS regulars and factoring in international absences, I think we've got a pretty good feel for who we think will have a productive fantasy round this weekend.

Quick reminder before we jump in - there are NO Sunday MLS matches this weekend, so if you're planning on actively managing as matches are being played, make sure you are available on Saturday evening to do so!

MLS Fantasy 2018 - Parsing The Percentages, Round 15

What’s up MLS Fantasy managers?! Kevin from SoccerCaptains coming back at you once again with the Round 15 edition of our Parsing the Percentages series. This is an especially tricky week – not only are we contending with players away on international duty, we’ve also had all 20 US-based MLS clubs playing midweek for the US Open Cup.

That being said, I think we’ve got some great picks for you today. After surveying the landscape in Vegas and having a look at midweek lineups, I’ve decided to focus on FC Dallas and the Houston Dynamo this weekend, where I think we’ll see some great MLS Fantasy returns this weekend!

MLS Fantasy 2018 - Round 13 Picks

Hello and Happy Friday to all of the MLS Fantasy managers out there! Memorial Day Weekend is here for those of us in the states, which means we're looking at a nice long weekend to kick off the summer!

Going to be honest with you here - Round 13 has been a tricky one to pick so far with the World Cup looming! A few teams are going to be either missing players entirely or limiting minutes due to upcoming international duty, which could materially affect some results this weekend. Nevertheless, we've settled on what we feel is a pretty solid lineup, with some flexibility to make moves throughout the weekend - give it a look after the jump below!
