MLS Fantasy 2019 - Round 5 Friday Night Power Rankings

What's up MLS Fantasy managers?! Round 5 kicks off in just under an hour with some Friday Night Football! NYCFC is traveling north of the border to visit Toronto in the only matchup of the night, which presents some very intriguing fantasy opportunities.

If you've been following us for a while now, you're well aware of the MLS Fantasy Switcheroo and the advantages that rolling lineups presents. For situations such as this one where you have one or two matches taking place one day before the rest of the league, we highly recommend including adding a couple players from those clubs to your bench. This way, if they have fantastic performances, you are free to throw up to four minimum-priced players who are guaranteed to not play into your starting lineup, thereby maximizing the amount you have to spend on the rest of your squad.

Now that you're ready to implement tonight's strategy, there's only one thing left to do: pick those bench players! We have just the thing to help you make those picks too... here are our Power Rankings for both Toronto FC and NYCFC players who will feature in tonight's match!

MLS Fantasy 2018 - Round 31 Power Rankings: NYCFC, Chicago

What’s up MLS Fantasy managers? We’re rapidly approaching the grand finale of the 2018 season, which means we’ve just got a few weeks to make that final push to the top of our mini leagues!

Round 31 of the fantasy season here features a mere two teams on double-duty, as Chicago travels to face NYCFC on Wednesday night at 7pm EST. With the rest of the league playing on Saturday and Sunday this week, our picks for the single-match teams are coming later in the week… but as is tradition, we’ve prepared a set of Double Matchweek Power Rankings to help you put together those fantasy squads for tonight’s matches!

Before we dive in, one final note here: the bench for our squad this round will heavily feature midweek players in switcheroo roles. NYCFC are in pretty poor form at the moment, and Chicago aren’t much better, so we’re going to be more cautious here and hope for some strong production to swap in. With that being said, let’s hop on in!

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!
