You’ve read all the advice from the MLS Experts, you’ve chatted with other managers here at MLS Fantasy Boss, and you lurked around /r/FantasyMLS to get a heads up on all new developments. Now it’s time to sit back and relax and enjoy!
I was pretty satisfied with my teams performance last week. I made a late sun of Dia on for Ramos and was able to come away with 72 points in the end. AS with most people, my midfield was disappointing, but Kah and Opara came in big for me on defense. This week I decided to be a little reckless and embrace the possibility that I could take a -4 before Round 3.
Here is my MLS Fantasy Boss Round 2 Team. Go #TeamBoss!
MLS Fantasy Boss Round 1 Team
I was very please with Deric so I saw no reason to make any changes. Kaka deflections be damned!
I toyed with the idea of swapping for some more sure starters on defense and maybe dropping Ramos, but in the end, I decided that midfield was where I wanted to spend my money. So I’m keeping with Kah and Opara, and rolling the dice once again on Dia who is a much bigger question mark this week than last.
My biggest change came in adding Dempsey to my team and dropping Diaz. Yes, I know that Seattle has a bye next round, but I really like the San Jose match up and I’m perfectly happy to absorb a -4 if I can get a sweet return this week from both Oba and Dempsey. Everything else stayed the same.
I had to cut money from one position to upgrade my midfield and I decided it had to be Wenger. He was my only forward not to score and I think there will be better Philly options in the future. So it;s just Obafemi and Keane up top this week. I brought in Badji because he started in Round 1. It’s not guarantee for the rest of the season, but it’s a better chance than some of the other $4.5m guys.
Swapped teh “C” from Keane to Dempsey for this week. I’m sure this will be a popular move so I did entertain Oba for a few days. But this was the choice that just felt right.
