I’m trying something new this week and posting the captain poll early to try and get more responses. I have not looked at a lot of numbers yet, but I believe I have three solid early choices. Don’t forget, the transfer deadline is Wednesday the 23rd at 10:30pm EST so be sure to get all of your trades in and captain set. Remember, you don’t get a Vice Captain this year.

Having trouble deciding on who to pick for your captain? Here are a few things to keep in mind. Is the team playing at home? Are there any key injuries (on either team)? Who had a good Preseason? Did Andrew Wiebe see his shadow this morning?All of these things help. Here are my top choices:
1) Justin Mapp: Mapp is tied for the top choice captain this week and I can see how he takes the edge due to his double game week. He only costs $8.0 and he’s earned 3 assists in his last 4 games. Away to RSL and then home to POR is not the easiest schedule, so this could be a time when a DGW player does not hit top points.
2) Clint Dempsey: Dempsey is the other top vote earner in our poll this week and I good choice for captain if you are looking at a SGW player. First game back from the World Cup, he gets a goal. Add that to the form Seattle is on and LA averaging giving up 1 goal each away game and you have the making for a promising captain choice.
3) Marco Di Vaio: Many people are going for Jack McInerney, who actually came in 3rd in our poll, but it’s Di Vaio who has scored 3 goals in his last 4 games. I believe that is the better bet if you want to go with a MTL forward this week.
If you are thinking about being bold, consider Drew Moor.
