Draft Primer with Player Rankings: Midfielders


MLS Fantasy midfielders are the bread and butter of any squad. This is the bulk of where your points will come from and you can play 3-5 them under normal conditions. Midfielders generally have a higher point floor than other positions but may sacrifice some ceiling over forwards.

You will never go wrong drafting the best midfielders early as long as you pick up one quality forward to start on your squad. Playing a heavy midfield squad will generally keep your team competitive and give you a real chance to win each week.

Midfielder selection can be interesting because they tend to take more set pieces than other positions. Finding a player takes corner kicks and free kicks will be a huge boost to your team.
