As always, be sure to check out the lineups before kickoff tonight. Also, the below rankings take into account the current weather forecast for Hurricane Florence, which has the storm moving further south (which would mean that DC is likely to play this weekend).

MLS Fantasy 2018 - Round 28 NYCFC Power Rankings

What’s up MLS Fantasy managers?! We’re officially headed down the home stretch here in Round 28 with 80% of the season now behind us. The fantasy soccer gods have rewarded us with a bit of a reprieve as the September FIFA International Break is here, so there will only be seven MLS teams playing this week. As luck would have it, Eastern Conference playoff contenders NYCFC are on double-duty and will play at home twice, which means that we’ve gone ahead and prepared our usual Double Matchweek Power Rankings for you!

As always, be sure to check out lineups on Wednesday night, as those will definitely influence our rankings. (UPDATE: NYCFC is fielding a full-strength lineup, so we’ve slightly tweaked our rankings accordingly, bumping up David Villa) So without further ado, let’s jump in to the picks below!

MLS Fantasy 2018 - Round 27 DGW Power Rankings

What's up MLS Fantasy managers! We've got another quick turnaround this week with eight teams on double-duty, so as always we've got some Round 27 Power Rankings coming your way!

Couple of things to note before we dive in:

• The New York Red Bulls are playing their fourth match in 12 days, so we're likely to see some rotation. Therefore, the below rankings are contingent upon the starting lineups, which will be announced at 7pm EST

• We've split out the Midfielder section into two categories: Defensive and Attacking. We're big proponents of including at least one defensive midfielder during rounds which have several teams playing twice, as their bonus potential offers a very solid floor at prices that are often quite affordable.

So without further ado, let's jump on in!
