Opening kickoff for the 2017 MLS season is right around the corner, which means that it's about time once again to post The List!
If you've played MLS Fantasy in the past, you're already quite familiar with the fact that the amount of information that is offered to players on the site is exponentially less than what you get when you play other fantasy games. This is mostly due to the way the league rules are currently set up - teams aren't required to disclose injuries like in other sports, so all you really see are players tagged with injury updates or international duties.
That being said, fantasy players who manage to stay on top of the MLS news cycle are able to put themselves at a huge advantage over the competition. I personally have found the most efficient way of doing this is to utilize Twitter; by creating a List on Twitter that tracks a combination of local beat writers, supporters' news sites, fantasy accounts and so on, you will have a considerable amount of fantasy-relevant information at your disposal (especially when you factor in Twitter's Advanced Search function. )
Below, I've compiled a list of MLS-related Twitter accounts that are solid resources for MLS Fantasy players. This list is a work in progress, of course; if there are any community members out there who have any additional accounts they believe should be followed, drop us a line or let us know in the comments below!
Additionally, we also highly recommend you check out the /r/FantasyMLS community over at Reddit. It's a growing and very well-run subreddit filled with plenty of fellow MLS Fantasy enthusiasts, definitely worth a look as well!
