MLS Fantasy 2018 - Round 10 Picks

MLS Fantasy Round 9 is in the rearview mirror, and that means we're officially more than a quarter of the way through the MLS season! It's been a pretty exciting 2018 so far here in the world of US club soccer: MLS teams performed exceptionally well in the CONCACAF Champions League, LAFC has exploded out of the gate and sit second in the Western Conference, and Zlatan has arrived!

If you're wondering what any of this has to do with fantasy... not much! But since we're on the subject, last week's score of 88 brought our point total to a flat 800 points on the season thus far. That puts us at 181 overall, just 108 points shy of the league leader. We're still optimistic we can come within the Top 100 before the 'spring season' of MLS Fantasy comes to a close, as long as some of our bolder picks work out for us.

Speaking of bold picks... here's how we're lined up coming into the Toronto/Philadelphia match on Friday night to kick off Round 10!

MLS Fantasy 2018 - Parsing The Percentages, Round 10

What’s up MLS Fantasy managers?! Kevin from Soccer Captains here, and I’m coming to you on a beautiful Thursday afternoon here on the east coast! It’s finally north of 80 degrees here, and no better place than the outdoors to bring you my weekly Parsing the Percentages piece.

Our selections of Atlanta and Columbus last week worked out quite well once again, as the Vegas betting scene once again provided very good guidance for our fantasy squads in Round 9. We look to continue that success as we step into Week 10, where the oddsmakers are favoring Toronto FC vs. Philadelphia and Sporting KC vs. Colorado. Let’s dive in!

MLS Fantasy returns once again on a Friday night, as Round 9 kicks off with RSL traveling to Vancouver for a Western Conference showdown!

This week is shaping up to be a very interesting one, with possibilities galore for fantasy managers. Round 9 matches are pretty well-spaced apart across the board throughout the weekend... and with three Sunday matches to go along with a Friday night fixture, there will be plenty of time for managers to actively manage their lineups throughout the weekend.

We will get into more details about which matches we plan on monitoring for mid-round lineup changes. In the meantime, here are our choices for Round 9!

MLS Fantasy 2018 - Parsing The Percentages, Round 9

Happy Thursday to all MLS Fantasy managers, and happy NFL Draft Day as well (especially those New York Giants fans!). Kevin from Soccer Captains coming back at ya for our weekly Parsing the Percentages series to further your chances of increased production for MLS Fantasy squads this weekend.

We hit a bit of a speedbump last week as the Chicago Fire shocked the league by traveling to Harrison, NJ and coming away with a rare road win against the New York Red Bulls. Nevertheless, we still have a very strong track record year-to-date, and we’re looking forward to coming back strong this weekend. That being said, let’s jump right in and break down the two clubs the oddsmakers favor for Round 9: Atlanta United FC and Columbus Crew SC.

MLS Fantasy 2018 - Round 7 NYCFC DGW Power Rankings

Good morning and happy match day!!! It is currently 2pm as I type this from 30,000 feet on my JetBlue flight to Aruba for a much-needed vacation!

Of course, the first day of this vacation comes at the same time as the first Wednesday night match of the MLS season as RSL visits Yankee Stadium. NYCFC are the first team to have a Double Gameweek this season, so MLS Fantasy managers should strongly consider bringing the maximum number of players (4) into their lineups.

Therefore, we decided to put together a quick list ranking which players we believe should be in your lineups this round!
