Rankings Recap: How the bye week affected FC Dallas

Another bye week for FCD meant some shifting in the latest rankings.

MLS: Portland Timbers at FC Dallas Jerome Miron-USA TODAY Sports

FC Dallas enters the second month of the season as the only unbeaten team in the Western Conference. The three home games and two bye weeks probably helped that out a good bit but that is a healthy place to be in at this stage in the season.

The bye week didn’t sway a lot of the power polls out there as the club hosts Colorado this weekend.

Comment: FC Dallas move up despite sitting out the week due to the unusual number of road wins in Week 5. Next up for them is a home game against a suddenly resurgent Rapids side. Can Roland Lamah continue his scoring ways?

ESPNFC (This week: 18, Last Week: 16)

Comment: No match for FC Dallas this week, so they lose a bit of ground to the surrounding pack.

Soccer America (This week: 10, Last week: 11)

Comment: The only team to sit out the weekend gets back to work Saturday at home against Colorado.

Pro Soccer USA (This week: 10, Last week: 11)

Comment: Idle last week, so rested for this weekend’s home game against the highly inconsistent –and winless on the road – Colorado Rapids.
