Round 3 ended on a giant EAH note. On the plus side, I ended up above the average even with all the suspensions. On the negative, my midfield did not perform well and I had to take a -8 just to get a full team. This week I’m much happier. I liked most of my games so I was abel to make a couple of prep trades for Round 5. More on that below.

Keepers – Again, no change. I’m going with Kronberg this time because of the away record that SKC had last season. I also think that Colorado might be a little easier game than Vancouver.
Defenders – Small change here, and by small I mean downgrade. I dropped Hedges and brought in E. Miller. This was a trade made purely for money. I needed to free up some cash for my Round 5 team. I picked Hedges because Marshall has good CBI numbers and is not playing for a defensive unit that is missing many of its starters. Seattle does have several away games coming up, but I’m willing to roll with those. Horst is also back in this week and Remick in on the bench but I have some rotating options this week since Chivas is playing last.
Midfielders – No change. I like the lineup that I have and am willing to give P. Morales one more week.
Forwards – Defoe is still here, but I’m not expecting much this week. Higuain could also have a tough game, but I always expect attacking bonus points from him and he was an upgrade from a $4.0m player. So even if he gets 2, it’s more than I would have received.
Bench – Surprisingly, my bench is actually filling out. I have at least 3 players who actually play and are cheap. Go team!
Captain – I’m going with J. Morales this week. Toronto allowed a goal against Seattle in their first game, and kept the expected clean sheet in game 2. Even without Plata, I think RSL’s offense will be the toughest they have faces this season. J. Morales should be a key player in that offense and I think he will get a good score.
That’s what I’m going with. How does that compare to your team?
