Friday May 4
MLS Fantasy Round 9 is in the rearview mirror, and that means we're officially more than a quarter of the way through the MLS season! It's been a pretty exciting 2018 so far here in the world of US club soccer: MLS teams performed exceptionally well in the CONCACAF Champions League, LAFC has exploded out of the gate and sit second in the Western Conference, and Zlatan has arrived!
If you're wondering what any of this has to do with fantasy... not much! But since we're on the subject, last week's score of 88 brought our point total to a flat 800 points on the season thus far. That puts us at 181 overall, just 108 points shy of the league leader. We're still optimistic we can come within the Top 100 before the 'spring season' of MLS Fantasy comes to a close, as long as some of our bolder picks work out for us.
Speaking of bold picks... here's how we're lined up coming into the Toronto/Philadelphia match on Friday night to kick off Round 10!
