FC Dallas players face a brutal double-game week on the road against Los Angeles and Real Salt Lake.

Anne-Marie Sorvin-USA TODAY Sports

Running a little late today. Lineups lock at 6:00! Let's take a look at who to start and who not to start.

FC Dallas

FC Dallas faces Los Angeles Galaxy and undefeated Real Salt Lake on the road this week. It is a double-game week for FCD players, but it doesn't look good.

Who to start/add

Fabian Castillo $6.9 - How about that passion last game? You can tell Castillo really wants to bring this team back to form. Castillo is one of the few players who is creating chances for this team at the moment.

Je-Vaughn Watson $6.1 - JVW is a favorite of Oscar Pareja's evidently. He can play numerous positions and is the closest thing to a lock at playing both games this week.

Who not to start/add

Adam Moffat $5.5 - Man this guy has been in horrific form lately. Lazy, sloppy passes game in and game out. Plus he most likely won't start both games, maybe not even one the way he has been playing.

Walker Zimmerman $5.8 - It looks like Stephen Keel is back, so don't play Zimmerman. In fact, I wouldn't play Keel either.


Double-game weeks for LA, FCD, HOU, and DC. Plan accordingly!

Who to start/add

Robbie Keane $11.0 - Keane just flat out scores goals. I have a feeling Keane is keen to score a few goals this week. Both games are at home against FCD and Philadelphia. I think he will produce just fine without Landon Donovan.

Javier Morales $11.1 - Morales is the man in form at the moment. He has collected 43 POINTS in the past three weeks and has RSL rolling. I don't see him stopping anytime soon.

Dan Gargan $6.3 -Gargan has been a solid pickup for LA this season. With a double-game week ahead against two teams not scoring much lately, he's a good bet to get a decent amount of points.

Who not to start/add

Andrew Wenger $5.8 - He hasn't done much since joining Philadelphia from Montreal. He only has a goal and an assist to his name.

Seth Sinovic $8.5 - Sporting Kansas City is so depleted on the back line. They might end up starting two full backs (Sinovic, Chance Myers) as center backs against Toronto. They are at home, which helps. But, I'm calling another Toronto win and for Jermain Defoe to keep scoring.

Jhon Kennedy Hurtado $7.8 - The Chicago Fire have conceded 19 goals this season. Hurtado only has 35 fantasy points. They're on the road against Columbus and red-hot Federico Higuain. Don't count on him getting many points.

Bye week: Chivas USA
