KFC’s Fantasy MLS Forward picks – Week 6

  So here’s my problem with the Big 3 this week, only two of them are really people who I would consider owning and even then, only one that I would want to play. Forwards have just been so inconsistent with points so far this season. You really need someone who is able to generate bonus points from crosses and …

KFC’s Fantasy MLS Midfielder picks – Week 6

Not a bad week for midfielders, especially if you play for Kansas City. There are several players who are poised to bring their total points into the 30s this week. Many of these guys are going to be the clear targets for transfer options as double games weeks come up and as managers look for value. Many good options are …

KFC’s Fantasy MLS Defender picks – Week 6

  There is one word that I can use to sum up defense this past week…. Dallas. If you don’t have someone from FC Dallas on your team right now, you are missing out. They have at least two good options that should be looked at. Other than that, not a lot of clean sheets were earned this week, so …

Thank You for the Great Start!

Hello everyone. Don’t worry, this is not a post saying that KFC is leaving the Fantasy MLS game. I wanted to take a second to thanks everyone for coming to the site and joining the league. For those of you who have not noticed, there is a STATS tab at the top of the Fantasy MLS page. This link lets …

KFC’s MLS Fantasy Keeper picks – Week 6

Three. That’s the number of clean sheets there were this past weekend. If you were lucky enough to have one of those keepers, then you were one of the lucky ones. There were still a few who got decent returns based on saves, so maybe that took the sting out of it for many others. Week 6 has 5 teams …

KFC MLS Fantasy Difficulty Chart: Week 6 – Week 11

As I said last week, the values for this chart will be changing after week 6 in order to make it be more in line with “general performance expectations.” There is a post on the r/FantasyMLS subreddit where anyone is welcome to provide input for this modification. Here is the Direct Link to the thread. When using the chart this …

KFC MLS Fantasy Team – Week 5

Good evening everyone. Sorry this post, as the others this week, was late. I actually just decided on the last trade so I really could not have posted it earlier. The decision was swayed by conversations in chat and on the r/FantasyMLS site. I never pass up an opportunity to learn something new and the continued growth of this community …

KFC’s MLS Fantasy Captain picks – Week 5

If you’re like us, you are breathing a sigh of relief to see so many players coming back from international duty injury free (sorry Keane owners). We’re down one of our normal captain picks this week, but we have a lot of the regulars back. The only concern many people will have is are the internationals fit enough for a …

KFC’s Fantasy MLS Forward picks – Week 5

As we mentioned last week, forwards have been pretty hit or miss so far and that does not look to be changing any time soon, especially with the return of some of the big time midfielders. We really only have 1 main forward recommendation, and he’s on a bye this week. Big 3 Chris Wondolowski (HOU v SJ), Robbie Keane (TOR …

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. You don’t have to worry about the -4 from a goal, but you can still rack up bonus points, goals, and assists. They really can be the whole package, if you are able to pick the right ones. This was a particularly hard …

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. But everyone should be back for week 5, unless injured, and this should help defenses perform more to expectations.  Keep in mind that Columbus and DC are not playing …

KFC’s MLS Fantasy Keeper picks – Week 5

Six teams were able to keep clean sheets this week, which make it pretty decent for keepers.  The International call-ups really hurt many defenses, especially those who lost keepers, yeah I’m looking at you Chicago…OUCH! A couple of the big names are on bye this week and a few tough matches makes it hard to find some standout picks. Big …

KFC MLS Fantasy Difficulty Chart: Week 5 – Week 10

Originally I said I would not be updating the values for team difficulty on this chart. But I have reconsidered that and plan to update some of the lower teams after week 6. If anyone would like to participate in this process, there will be a post on the r/FantasyMLS subreddit about it in the coming weeks. This chart displays …
