MLS Fantasy Manager: Week Four

New, 5 comments

Fantasy points will be hard to come by this week due to international friendlies.

Jerome Miron-USA TODAY Sports

It's the fourth week of MLS Fantasy Manager 2015, and it is sure to be a down week for most. With all the international call-ups to navigate through, it will be hard to put together a good squad this week. But, let's try! Lineups lock  Saturday at 2:00 p.m. CT!

FC Dallas

The Hoops will be at home this weekend against Seattle. Seattle will be without Clint Dempsey, but they're still a good team. It will be a tough one on Saturday, but I think we will get the job done.

Here's some guys to think about adding:

Walker Zimmerman $5.5 - Atiba Harris might not start this week. He will be coming off an international friendly and might be a little tired. With no Moises Hernandez or Je-Vaughn Watson, Oscar Pareja will have to experiment with his back line. I think he will go with Zimmerman, and shifting Zach Loyd to either right or left back. But, who knows?

Ryan Hollingshead $5.5 - With all the international call-ups and how well he has been playing, I'd be surprised if Hollingshead doesn't get the start this week. Good/cheap option in the midfield.

David Texeira $7.5 - Tex loves to score against Seattle. It's all he does. I'd bet money Pareja plays him this game. Hopefully Tex can keep up his scoring ways against the Sounders.

No bye weeks, and no double-game weeks. However, clubs will be without some of their star players due to the international break.

Here's some guys to think about adding:

Graham Zusi (SKC) $10.5 - I'm going on a bit of a limb here. Zusi hasn't had a great start to the season. Neither has Sporting Kansas City. But, they will be in New York to take on New York City FC at Yankee Stadium this weekend. If you watched NYCFC's home opener, you know that it was all about attack. SKC has the better offense. NYCFC doesn't have a good defense. You do the math. I'm hoping Zusi comes up big. I'd consider Dom Dwyer too.

Mix Diskerud (NYCFC) $9.1 - Like I said above, the game between NYCFC and SKC will be all about attack. Mix was brilliant at Yankee Stadium last time. I think he will be again.

Will Bruin (HOU) $7.9 - Houston will be playing Colorado this weekend. Colorado is not good. Houston is average. With no Giles Barnes, Bruin will have to step up for the Dynamo.

Kendall Waston (VAN) $8.6 - Not as expensive as someone like Matt Hedges or Omar Gonzalez, but he can put up fantasy points like them. Vancouver tends to play well at home. A Diego Valeri-less Portland Timbers side come to town, and I think Waston and the Whitecaps get their third clean sheet in four games.

Fernando Aristeguieta (PHI) $7.6 - Philly travels to Chicago to take on the lowly Fire, who will be even worse with guys like Shaun Maloney and David Accam out. Aristeguieta has played well when I've seen him. I'd consider starting anyone from Philly against this Chicago team.
