Greetings and salutations from beautiful Red Bull Arena in Harrison, NJ! The sun is out, the supporters are tailgating, and we are gearing up for what should be an INCREDIBLE evening of USA soccer!
HOWEVER!!! Despite all of the festivities, we cannot forget that there are just nine rounds left in the MLS Fantasy season! At this stage, every point matters… especially when you are like me and missed out on a massive double-match-filled round last weekend while on vacation due to a hike that went three hours longer than expected with absolutely no signal!
If you haven’t had a chance to check out this week’s MLSFI podcast, I highly recommend you do so as we did a great job of breaking down what to expect from the Round 26 matches. That being said, my lineup has been set, and here’s who we have going for us this week!
