FPL 2017-2018 Roundtable #2 - September International Break Edition!

Hello everyone, and welcome to the second edition of the SoccerCaptains Fantasy Premier League Roundtable! We're very happy to host our top-notch team of Hass, Joanna, and Tim once again this week. We've got a lot to cover today as we break down how the first month of the FPL season has gone so far, some ideas we have as we come out on the other side of the international break, and, most importantly, whether or not managers should be popping that wildcard for Gameweek 4. I hope you have your notebooks out and your fantasy teams up on your second tab, because we've got some red-hot FPL analysis coming your way!

MLS Fantasy 2017 - Round 27 Picks

After a bit of a reprieve from Wednesday night matches, the MLS Fantasy dives headfirst back into the midweek fray. Round 27 kicks off a run of five straight rounds featuring midweek matchups right up through the October international break.

Therefore, fantasy managers jockeying for position need to make sure that a single midweek deadline isn’t missed down the stretch – which, to be honest, is easier said than done as 7:30pm EST on Wednesday night will occasionally sneak up on people before they know it. One tactic to help mitigate this risk is to set a preliminary lineup on the Sunday prior to the deadline – this way, even if the deadline slips by before managers are able to do their research and make their final transfers, they will at least be able to salvage some points based on double-duty and strong-single-match players alone.

On that note, without further ado, here are our picks for Round 27!

MLS Fantasy 2017 - Round 26 Picks (Live from Red Bull Arena! USA! USA! USA!)

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!

What's up everyone?! We've got a light MLS Fantasy Round 26 this weekend with the international break upon us (let's go USMNT!!!). That being said, despite the light fixture list, this may have been one of the best episodes of the MLSFI podcast recorded so far this season! The crew over there was kind enough to bring me aboard once again as we broke down last weekend's matchups and provide match previews and picks for the Round 26 weekend!

We've embedded the podcast below, but before you dive in, here are the other hosts from the pod this week - make sure to give them a follow on Twitter for all of your MLS Fantasy needs!

FPL 2017-2018 Preseason Roundtable

August 11 is just around the corner, which means that Fantasy Premier League is back once again to dominate our weekends!

To kick off the FPL season right, we've decided to do change it up a bit and host a roundtable discussion with with some of the best fantasy footballers I know!

FPL #Top10K standout and SoccerCaptains contibutor Hass Suleman is here with us today; he's joined by my very good friend and diehard Everton supporter Joanna Stormborn, along with Man City diehard and one of the finest fantasy commissioners I've had the pleasure of playing under, Tim Smith.

We've got some true fantasy heavyweights here folks, and they've got a lot of good advice for managers looking to finalize those Gameweek 1 rosters. So without further ado, let's jump into the roundtable!

MLS Fantasy 2017 - MLSFI Podcast, Round 21

What's up everyone? MLS Fantasy Round 21 is approaching fast with Columbus and Philly on double-duty this week, which means rosters lock Wednesday night! Therefore, in order to make sure you're on top of your picks coming into this round, I wanted to share the latest edition of the MLS Fantasy Insider podcast. Added bonus: yours truly was featured as the guest host this week!

We covered the insanity that was Round 20 with more than half of the league playing twice, followed by a match-by-match Round 21 preview and our picks for the week. Throw in some nerdy pop-culture references, and we've got ourselves one heck of a podcast!

We've embedded the podcast below, but before you dive in, here are the other hosts from the pod - make sure to give them a follow as well!

That being said, we’ve got a few ideas of how we can get your fantasy team to see plenty of green arrows this week. So, without further ado, here is how we're lining up this round, along with some thoughts behind this week’s setup:

Hey everyone, just wanted to make a quick post today and give a quick shout-out to the crew over at Reddit and the MLS Fantasy Subreddit.

Lastly, I just wanted to highlight a quick post I made over there which should be very helpful for managers looking to firm up their lineups before Thursday night's match. I compiled the lineups and substitutions for every match that MLS teams (who are participating in Round 18) played midweek between the US Open Cup and Canada Cup. Link is below!

MLS Fantasy 2017 - MLSFI Podcast, Round 18

Hey everyone, just wanted to take a quick second to share this week's edition of the MLS Fantasy Insider podcast! The team had me on as a guest host this week, and we covered Round 17 results and the upcoming round 18 matches! Some really great stuff on here this week between the Hudson River Derby and Harry Potter quotes - be sure to give it a listen! One fair warning though - this was recorded before the midweek USOC matches, so make sure to factor those in when picking your lineups this week!

Lastly, here are the other hosts from the pod - make sure to give them a follow as well!
