Good morning and happy World Cup Week, MLS Fantasy managers! The crew over at the MLSFI podcast invited me back this week, where we talked fantasy, the World Cup, and hamburgers!

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!

MLS Fantasy 2018 - Parsing The Percentages, Round 13

What’s up MLS Fantasy managers! It’s your boy K-to-the-Manner hot off the press here at SoccerCaptains bringing you the latest installment of our Parsing the Percentages series – we’ve waded into the Vegas landscape once again to see which teams the oddsmakers favor in order to make recommendations for your fantasy teams this weekend!

This weekend, the bookies seem to be favoring the Seattle Sounders coming off a bye week against a flailing RSL… while Tim’s very own New York Red Bulls are also heavily favored at home against Philadelphia after coming away with a great road win against Atlanta FC last weekend.

MLS Fantasy 2018 - Parsing The Percentages, Round 12

Good morning all and happy Friday to MLS Fantasy managers! My goodness, the east coast has been riddled with rain for days now, but we are back at it today for our weekly Parsing The Percentage piece.

With one match already in the books for Round 12, we expect managers will have at least a handful of players already locked in. However, there's still quite a bit more soccer to be played this weekend, and we're optimistic we'll be able to provide you with a few picks to help you finalize those last few roster slots.

MLS Fantasy 2018 - Round 12 DGW Power Rankings: San Jose & Vancouver

Good afternoon and happy match day, MLS Fantasy managers! We’ve got another unique situation this week as we have two teams playing twice during Round 12. San Jose visits Vancouver on Wednesday night at 10:30pm EST, followed by Saturday fixtures with the Earthquakes headed home to host DC United and the Whitecaps travelling down to the Lone Star State to take on FC Dallas.

Thanks to the flexibility of the MLS Fantasy game in 2018, we don’t have to make ALL of our roster decisions on Wednesday night – just the ones that will involve players from these two teams. Therefore, we’ve put together a quick set of Power Rankings for players from these two teams, taking into account both expected fantasy returns and potential rotation risk.

As always, we advise fantasy managers check the starting lineups when they come out at 9:30pm EST tonight, as it’s possible that one (or both) of these teams rests some regulars midweek to ensure full strength over the weekend.

For our team, depending on Wednesday night lineup announcements, we will likely see anywhere from five to eight total players from these two teams end up on our roster – four of which will be occupying all of our bench slots in switcheroos.

Anyway, we've gone on long enough, and it's time for the good part: Here are our Round 12 DGW Power Rankings!
