MLS Fantasy Manager: Week 15

FC Dallas players face a tough Portland side on the road.

Russ Isabella-USA TODAY Sports

Lineups lock at 6:30pm tonight! Let's take a look at who to start and who not to start.

FC Dallas

The Hoops play Portland on the road tonight. FCD is coming off their first win since April. But, Portland is coming off an impressive 3-1 road win against Real Salt Lake.

Who to start/add

Fabian Castillo $7.2 - Castillo scored the game winner last week against Colorado and will look to continue his success against the Timbers. If Castillo plays like he did last week, we are in for another win. With not many options this week, (because there is only two games) Castillo could shine for your team.

Blas Perez $8.8 - With not many options, Perez seems like a good choice to go with this week against a sloppy Portland defense.

Who not to start/add

Raul Fernandez $5.2 - First of all, it's unclear who will get the nod to start between Fernandez and Chris Seitz. Second of all, Portland is scoring a lot of goals right now and FCD will be without Matt Hedges.

Stephen Keel $5.9 - I'm assuming Keel and Walker Zimmerman will be the combo used in the center of defense. I wouldn't start either one of them. Portland's Fanendo Adi is a handful.

MLS

UNLIMITED TRANSFERS! There is unlimited transfers this round and next round. There is only two games this round, PORvFCD and MTLvDC.

Who to start/add

Fanendo Adi $8.3 - The Portland striker has started only two games. But, he has scored two goals in each of them. He is on fire and I don't trust our defense without Hedges. We will need to outscore Portland in this one.

Fabian Espindola $9.2 - Espindola is one of the hottest strikers in MLS at the moment and D.C. United will be playing lowly Montreal Impact. You do the math.

Diego Valeri $10.7 - Valeri is always a reliable option week in and week out. I feel bad for picking another Portland attacker. But hey, our defense isn't very good right now.

Who not to start/add

Hassoun Camara $7.3 - Montreal's defense is not good. They are coming off an impressive 2-0 win against New England. But, Eddie Johnson and Espindola are coming into town this week and it doesn't look good for Montreal.

Noberto Paparatto $7.1 - Portland's defense isn't all that great either. Plus Paparatto makes some questionable tackles and could easily add on to his card total.

Justin Mapp $7.3 - The maestro for Montreal s day-today at the moment. i wouldn't risk starting him. Even if he plays, he won't be 100 percent healthy and ready to go.
