There were several midfielders who performed well, which makes picking just a few a little difficult. Keep reading to see the ones that seem to have promising games next week.
Graham Zusi (Kansas City) vs Toronto
Owned by: 34.6%
This pick was pretty much a given right. Zusi with Williams for 2nd highest score in week 1 and he seems to be settling right back into his form from last year. The game against Toronto should not be too challenging for Kansas City and I expect Zusi to one again have plenty of opportunities to put points on the board.
Diego Valeri (Portland) vs Montreal
Owned by: 11.4%
Valeri provide to be an effective and important part of Portland’s team in week 1. Their game against Montreal should not be one that they have to claw their way back from. I’d expect Valeri, and Portland, to be able to come away with a win this week.
Jackson Goncalves (FC Dallas) vs Chivas
Owned by: 2.2%
FC Dallas played well in their first game, but I think people expected more. Still, several players showed promise and Jackson was one of them with some nice attempts on goal and crosses…OH and that goal. Chivas should present Dallas with a good opportunity to get a more convincing win.
