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’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.

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 Captain picks – Week 4

International duty, what a bitch right? A lot of the best go-to captains are either injured, on a bye, or on international duty. The only good thing about that means that the list is short this week.  Keep reading for the list.

KFC’s Fantasy MLS Forward picks – Week 4

Forwards have been pretty hit of miss so far this season. In a couple of the fantasy circles we hang around in, people have been talking about the benefits of the 4-5-1 and 5-4-1 formations. It’s worth a look and we’ll try to address it in a future post. For now… there are some forwards who could have some good …

KFC’s Fantasy MLS Midfielder picks – Week 4

Oh what a difference a day can make. In the first draft of this post, Brad Davis was listed as one of the “Big 3” picks below. It only made sense since he, surprisingly, did not get called up to the USMNT. Then… he got called up. SO! After a quick revision, the new list is ready to go. My …

KFC’s Fantasy MLS Defender picks – Week 4

  Several teams have taken a beating this week when it comes to their defenders (Thanks WCQ!) and Real Salt Lake leads that list. The loss of defenders could be a big blow to managers this week, but forwards have also left, so some teams may not be a strong on the attack. Checkout the list here! Big 3 Aurélien …
