My score in Round 1 was, respectable. I took some chances with the Dallas defense and those did not pay off. My round 2 team had two focuses to it. How to recover from my Round 1 gamble, and how to setup my team to bring in some big name attackers after CCL games are over.

Keepers – Sticking with these guys here. I’ve liked what I have seen so far so no reason to reinvent the wheel.
Defenders – Two big disappointments here last week, the Dallas defense and Kah’s injury. In the end, I decided that these transfers could wait because none of my players looked in danger of losing value. I like the clean sheet chances of Seattle and Houston this week, and I’m hoping that Hedges can gets some bonus points. Best case, the SKC offense if still a little tired from the CCL game.
Midfielders – Biggest changes came here. Pappa has some good moments, but I decided there was a better option from Seattle over the next few rounds. I dropped him for Morales (VAN) because he looked good in Round 1 and has a very good chance of stating this week. I was also able to avoid Pappa’s price drop. I also traded out Donovan. I did not do this until last night because I wanted to see if his price would drop. If it did not, I was going to trade Kah. But it did so I brought in Dempsey. This was a sideways move for Pappa, but I think he will energize the Seattle offense over the next few round.
Forwards – No change here. I think Oba will do better with Dempsey.
Bench – McNamara gets a start now and Acosta is riding the bench. With hope, he’ll stay healthy and earn some more value.
Captain – I debated a lot between Dempsey, Oba, ad Davis this week. Finally decided to go with Davis because I like is bonus production. I also think Montreal’s defense is worse that New England’s, so he has a good chance for goals and assists.
That’s what I’m going with. How does that compare to your team?
