Playtime Analysis – 2016 Round 5

Playtime Analysis - 20Playtime Analysis is a weekly overview offering useful tips for the coming weeks about players that aren’t going to be getting their usual time on the pitch.  Whether it be value subs, injured stars, or international absences, you can find it here in Playtime Analysis.

Worra $4.0 DC: Time to find a new keeper if Worra was your only starter. With the addition of Tally Hall, Worra’s time as the starter may be coming to an end. Trading up to Melia with three DGWs on the horizon is the obvious move, but several other keepers are floating around the $5.0 price point that could fill the void.

Redding $4.9 OC: Redding has been a great cheap option, but the injury during the game last weekend may see him miss a few. At least Orlando City will get some return on the expensive Aurellien Collin contract. With three road games in the next four, Orlando players aren’t in the highest of demand, but the matchups are the worst possible.

Feilhaber $11.0 SKC: Feilhaber made his season debut Sunday, but it was a lackluster performance at best. His inclusion in the lineup will likely push Jordi Quintilla out of the starting XI for the time being, but given the young Spaniards early performances, we could see another player on split time for SKC. This midfield jumble is one to watch out for. Mustivar and Zusi remain the two big locks in the lineup.

Magee $7.2 LA: In the absence of Keane, Magee should get his chance to shine and start the majority of games. He’s a proven goalscorer on a team that needs someone to step up. Definitely worth taking a risk on.
