Atlanta United

Adam Jahn ($4.0m) – Jahn failed to score, despite some decent hold up play. Tough matchup vs. SKC, but he should start again.

Chicago Fire

Robert Beric ($9.8m) – Was a bust in week 2, but looks to bounce back in week 3 vs. Orlando. Still a keystone of this attack.

C.J. Sapong ($8.5m) – Injured

Elliot Collier ($4.3m) – Not a viable option

Colorado Rapids

Kei Kamara ($9.8m) – A boom or bust player, he was the latter in week 2. He gets Vancouver, but they somehow managed a clean sheet against the Galaxy. He could easily score this week.

Diego Rubio ($7.0m) – Came off the bench again. Looks to be a super sub at this point.

Andre Shinyashiki ($4.9m) – Another start has him looking like a regular in the XI, but he did very little with it. A sneaky budget option against one of the worst teams.

Columbus Crew

Gyasi Zardes ($9.2m) – Got himself a goal, and should have confidence again. He gets RSL, who have been a tough team to read thus far.

Fanendo Adi ($5.8m) – Not a viable option

D.C. United

Ola Kamara ($7.9m) – Hamstring injury may hold him out for a while, but tbd.

F.C. Cincinnati

Jurgen Locadia ($9.7m) – Despite starting, he was held goalless against ATL. DC will be missing Mora, and have looked inconsistent on defense. It could be a big week for Locadia.

Yuya Kubo ($8.9m) – Bagged an away goal in ATL, and could be a decent start in a nice home matchup with an injured DCU.

Brandon Vasquez ($5.7m) –

Kekuta Manneh ($5.3m) – Not a viable option

F.C. Dallas

Zdenek Ondrasek ($10m) – He is on fire. I would insist you take him if he weren’t traveling to Yankee Stadium. Should NYCFC rest players, it could be easier.

Jesus Ferreira ($7.8m) – Unavailable: Olympic Qualifyers

Fafa Picault ($6.6m) – He will need to get on the stat sheet before we can consider him.

Ricardo Pepi ($5.2m) – Scored as a sub. Not a viable option still

Houston Dynamo

Mauro Manotas ($9.4m) – After getting smoked, Houston has a home matchup vs. Seattle, who have not looked great defensively. Not a bad start, but Manotas doesn’t get enough bonuses to be consistent.

Alberth Elis ($9m) – Injured

Christian Ramirez ($6.4m) – Not a viable option

Inter Miami

Julian Carranza ($8.5m) – Injured

Juan Agudelo ($5.9m) –

Robbie Robinson ($4.9m) – Didn’t play 60 minutes, but still managed an assist. Still not worth rostering.

L.A. Galaxy

Christian Pavon ($11.3m) – Update: He is going to have bad games. This team does not look very good at all, so in games where they struggle Pavon will see very few bonus points. Still a great player, he gets Miami in their home opener.

Chicharito ($10.8m) – Honestly, it is going to be like this for a while. Stay away until he finds his groove.


Carlos Vela ($14.4m) – Bye

Diego Rossi ($10.6m) – Bye

Adama Diomande ($9.5m) – Injured

Bryan Rodriguez ($7.9) – Bye

Minnesota United

Luis Amarilla ($11.5m) – Goal and assist with a missed penalty. He may be a consistent goal source, but isn’t going to get many bonuses. Home opener should see him in the spotlight however.

Mason Toye ($7m) –

Montreal Impact

Maxi Urruti ($9.5m) – Bye

Romell Quito ($8.2m) – Bye

Nashville S.C.

Dom Badji ($5.9m) – Stay away. New team, weak attack, and Badji is not a good fantasy asset.

David Accam ($5.4m) – Maybe down the road, but wait on the Nashville attack for a few weeks.

Daniel Rios ($4m) –

Abu Danladi ($4m) –

New England Revolution

Gustavo Bou ($10.7m) – Gil may be returning, so stay tuned, but Bou may have one of the highest floors at the forward spot. Portland’s defense is mediocre at best.

Christian Penilla ($8.2m) – Should definitely start, and coming off a pretty solid performance, he could be worth a look against a mediocre Chicago defense

Adam Buksa ($8.2m) – Got himself a goal, and may get another one this week at home.

Bunbury ($7m) – Simply not good enough, there are far better options.


Heber ($8.9m) – Quite a murky situation with CCL, I would expect Heber to be rested but who knows.

Valentin Castellanos ($6.9m) – Can’t be trusted for 90 minutes, faces a tough Dallas defense as well.

New York Red Bulls

Brian White ($6.4m) -Not the most interesting target for your attack. There are too many options available, and NYRB will be getting their goals as a collective unit.

Tom Barlow ($4.4m) –

Orlando City S.C.

Dom Dwyer ($7m) – Injured

Tesho Akindele ($4.9m) – Sure, he could get his first goal this week. Probably not. Stay away from Orlando’s forwards

Benji Michel ($4m) –

Santiago Patino ($4.3m) –

Philadelphia Union

Kacper Przybylko ($8.4m) – Yes he went scoreless, but it is any day now that he grabs a goal or two. Him or Santos are solid options at home against SJ.

Sergio Santos ($7.2m) – With a goal and assist, he showed that he is ready for a breakout season. Solid budget option

Portland Timbers

Jaroslaw Niezgoda ($9m) –

Felipe Mora ($7.4m) – Showed very little involvement in the game. He will need to make adjustments in order to get more chances. He will explode one of these days, but maybe be patient for now.

Jeremy Ebobisse ($5.9m) – Unavailable: Olympic qualifiers

Real Salt Lake

Sam Johnson ($7.5m) – Injured

Giuseppe Rossi ($6.8m) – DNP, still not match fit.

Jeizon Ramirez ($6.6m) – Keep on waiting, he won’t get 90 minutes for a few games.

Corey Baird ($5.4m) – He may be starting, but this attack is struggling.

San Jose Earthquakes

Andres Rios ($7.5m) – Definitely looking decent, but playing in Philly this week is a tough task.

Chris Wondolowski ($6.4m) – Super sub; not worth owning

Danny Hoesen ($4.9m) – If he gets hot, you may want to ride the hot streak, but until that point I would stay far away.

Seattle Sounders

Raul Ruidiaz ($10.4m) – Scored on a penalty, and gets worst team in MLS this week. Solid start

Jordan Morris ($10.2m) – Could have had 20 fantasy points, but ended with two. Facing Houston this week, his ceiling is miles high.

Sporting Kansas City

Alan Pulido ($12m) – This man is a revelation. A goal and an assist continues his form, but he has to head to Mercedes-Benz this week. He is still a strong play, and could easily score against ATL’s overrated defense.

Khiry Shelton ($7.4m) – A goal and an assist in SKC’s domination of Houston. I still do not trust him to be consistent at all, simply based off his previous experience.

Toronto F.C.

Jozy Altidore ($8.9m) – Managed 5 points after bonuses, and he gets NSC. While Nashville has struggled to score, their defense is nothing to laugh at so manage your expectations.

Vancouver Whitecaps

Lucas Cavallini ($7.4m) – His goals will come, and a matchup with the Galaxy is a prime opportunity for such an occasion. No reason you should not start him if you are interested

Tosaint Ricketts ($5.2m) – Got himself a goal in a start, and his position is something to monitor but cannot be trusted long term at this time.

Fredy Montero ($4.9m) – Relegated to the bench, stay away until further notice.
