KFC’s Fantasy MLS Midfielder picks – Week 5

As most managers are probably starting to figure out, Midfielders are the cash cows of fantasy MLS.

KFC’s Fantasy MLS Defender picks – Week 5

Just like keepers, defenders had a pretty good this week thanks to several clean sheets. That’s always a good result when your team is worrying about loosing players to International duty.
