MLS Fantasy 2018 - Round 19 DGW Power Rankings: Houston & LAFC

All right gang, we've got our first Tuesday Night match of the season, with LAFC traveling to H-town to take on the Dynamo at 8pm EST tonight!

Given that these two squads are the only two participating on the first night, we've decided to take the fantasy-relevant players from both squads and rank them for you! We'll be taking anywhere from 4 to 6 players in total from the below list for our squad this week, given the strength of their matchups on the far leg of this round... and we highly recommend filling out your bench with at least two players from this group as switcheroo picks!

So without further ado... here are the rankings!

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!

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!
