FC Dallas

FC Dallas hosts New England Revolution this week. FCD should get all three points this week against a team that has lost five straight. The Hoops will be in good shape to get a good amount of fantasy points.

Who to start/add

Matt Hedges $8.5 - FCD should be able to get the shutout this weekend and all three points against a struggling Revolution side.

Mauro Diaz $7.8 - Hopefully Diaz gets the start. Either way, he will be on the field at some point and he will change the game and consistently make plays.

Andres Escobar $6.0 - Escobar is a good value option. He is cheap and puts up decent numbers.

Who to not start/add

Hendry Thomas $6.4 - Our pal just recovered from an injury and received another knock and will most likely be out for a while.

Jair Benitez $6.1 - Benitez is doubtful for the upcoming game. Moises Hernandez will most likely get the nod.

Victor Ulloa $4.8 - Ulloa hurt his knee in training this week and will have an MRI. He was back at training today, but that doesn't mean he will be 100 percent for the game this weekend. Defensive midfielders don't get many fantasy points anyways (at least ours don't).


So many double-game weeks for teams this week: New York, Toronto, Columbus, Sporting Kansas City, New England, Philadelphia, and Los Angeles.

Who to start/add

Bradley Wright-Phillips $8.7 - The Golden Boot race leader is on a double-game week. You would be dumb not to captain him, right?

Graham Zusi $10.6 - SKC is at almost full force and on a double-game week. Honestly, almost any of their guys are good pickups.

Michael Parkhurst $7.8 - Columbus isn't scoring at the moment. But, they have two home games this week. With almost no scoring options, they will most likely be holding the ball and playing defensively for as long as they can.

Who not to start/add

Matt Besler $9.3 - Okay I lied. Not everyone is a good option on SKC's roster. Who knows when Besler will be sold. I wouldn't take the chance. Go with Aurelien Collin or Seth Sinovic.

Chris Wondolowski $9.3 - Who else rolled their eyes when Wondo scored for San Jose last week? Yeah, it still hurts... The Earthquakes only have one game this week and it's away against New York. Bottom of the table vs top of the table. Doesn't look good.

Victor Bernardez $8.3 - San Jose is just not very good. BWP, Thrierry Henry, and Tim Cahill are doing work in New York. I don't see this going well for SJ.

Bye Week: Seattle Sounders
