MLS GW13 Tips Fantasy Major League Soccer

MLS GW13 Tips Fantasy Major League Soccer Welcome to MLS GW13 Tips Fantasy Major League Soccer. The 16/17 FPL season is now officially over. Countries all over the world are preparing themselves for international tournaments and qualifiers. In short, it’s starting to look like a typical summer season – unless you’re the MLS. The MLS will keep plugging along – and I’ll keep writing about it. If you’ve been on the fence about playing FMLS, build a squad for the summer. Why not? Every week is a wildcard and you’ll learn a little bit about a league that doesn’t follow any of the conventional methodology of football. Some people find that element fun – others find it terribly frustrating. But FMLS continues to be one of the most difficult fantasy games available either way. I’...Read More

MLS GW12 Tips Fantasy Major League Soccer

MLS GW12 Tips Fantasy Major League Soccer Welcome to MLS GW12 Tips Fantasy Major League Soccer. Let me be honest with you, I’m not sure how many tips you all need this week. There are ten teams on a double this round and, inevitably, just filling your roster up with as many of these players as possible is going to yield some good points for you. In fact, the only way that you can really mess this up is to not make your transfers at all. I guess that might not be true either – you could very well pick the wrong double teams and get completely hosed. Maybe the real issue here is that as I’m writing this paragraph, there’s a very real part of me that wonders if I have the strength to write a DGW article with ten teams featured. That’s a lot of writing. And the real problem? DGW’s haven’...Read More

MLS GW11 Tips Fantasy Major League Soccer

MLS GW11 Tips Fantasy Major League Soccer Welcome to MLS GW11 Tips Fantasy Major League Soccer. Just as I’m getting set to wind down my FPL season so that I can cut my workload in half, the MLS decided to really ramp things up on their end. There are DGWs in the MLS as far as the eye can see – so no immediate rest for me. In fact, next week, after my final Fixtures article of the year, the MLS decided to put ten teams on a double. What a way to celebrate the closing of a chapter, eh? More work. Maybe the only good thing that will come of this is that you’ll learn to hate DGWs as much as I do. How did you all like that rotation last week? Oh, you expected Giovinco to travel to Seattle? Foolish notion. You thought NYRB would play their starters to begin the series? Bah. And don’t even ...Read More

MLS GW10 Tips Fantasy Major League Soccer

MLS GW10 Tips Fantasy Major League Soccer Welcome to MLS GW10 Tips Fantasy Major League Soccer. Let me vent a bit of frustration here for you. When I sit down to write an article, I like to be as prepared as possible. Now maybe you don’t agree with the points I make, but I always feel better knowing that the picks I suggest have at least have some kind of foundation. And to have the foundation to create a good article, you need time to study and write. And we don’t have a ton of study time with another DGW this round. As for time to write? That’s never an issue for me. Writing for me is the easy part (for having incredibly fat fingers and the hands of a caveman, I type like Forrest Gump runs: “like the wind blows”). Honestly, the owners of this site must think that I write for hours on end...Read More

MLS GW9 Tips Fantasy Major League Soccer

MLS GW9 Tips Fantasy Major League Soccer Welcome to MLS GW9 Tips Fantasy Major League Soccer. Last week, I advocated pretty hard against taking any San Jose players in a double road game scenario. And even though they got that initial clean sheet in the back for good points, far too many people put their hopes into Wondolowski. And now we’d like to take a pause here in this article for those Wondo owners to think about how stupid that was. While you sit in silence and consider your actions, the rest of us will be pointing and laughing at you. It’s no less than you deserve. …1 …2 …3 I have to admit, I didn’t take much pleasure in laughing at you during the pause. The point of me writing a million words per week (which is probably 999,999 more words than this fantasy game d...Read More

MLS GW8 Tips Fantasy Major League Soccer

MLS GW8 Tips Fantasy Major League Soccer Welcome to MLS GW7 Tips Fantasy Major League Soccer. We get a real DGW this week, and people are looking to set things right from their previous scores I’d imagine. Last week was a bit of a letdown for a lot of folks. The average score, on a full MLS schedule no less, was just 55 points. I’m not a superb mathematician, but an average score of 5 points per starting player has to be some kind of record low when everybody is using a WC at the same time. When you consider all the groaning and moaning people said about unlimited transfers making the game “too easy”, it’s almost satisfying watching so many teams buckle under the pressure of having to remake their team every week. Because the truth of the matter is that it’s harder than it looks. And I thi...Read More

MLS GW7 Tips Fantasy Major League Soccer

MLS GW7 Tips Fantasy Major League Soccer Welcome to MLS GW7 Tips Fantasy Major League Soccer.THIS WEEKS DEADLINE IS 00:00am UK TIME Saturday. (That’s Friday night, basically!) Just as a continuation on the intro from my FPL Fixtures article earlier in the week: I am still drinking kale shakes with ground ginger root. My wife is serious about getting my blood pressure down and getting me to cut weight, yet she has no regard for my personal joy nor happiness. But I’m smarter than my wife gives me credit for. Since I don’t want to have kale shakes and celery forced upon me at all hours, I’ve taken the bold step into daily intermittent fasting. Basically I eat no food and consume no calories for 18-20 hours per day. Ha! I’ll show her… Basically I hate everything right now. You, ano...Read More

MLS GW6 Tips Fantasy Major League Soccer

MLS GW6 Tips Fantasy Major League Soccer Welcome to MLS GW6 Tips Fantasy Major League Soccer.THIS WEEKS DEADLINE IS 3:30am UK TIME (Saturday early, early, really early morning, basically!) Before this round has even kicked off, we’ve already had a heaping dose of MLS-y business going on in the world. First off, the people of St. Louis have rejected a bid to fund a stadium for a new MLS franchise in their city, and that’s kind of a big deal. In a sports league that doesn’t have promotion nor relegation, entering the league is usually as simple as giving the league as much money as one can muster, and giving the promise of a free stadium. But the people of St. Louis decided they didn’t want to give the league any money so that one day they could try to buy their own aging European superstar,...Read More

MLS GW5 Tips Fantasy Major League Soccer

MLS GW5 Tips Fantasy Major League Soccer THIS WEEKS DEADLINE IS SATURDAY 1st APRIL AT 00:30AM UK TIME (Friday night, basically!) Imagine this: you’re sitting at your job, and you start to feel a bit overwhelmed. Maybe you start to think that this whole theory of “fake it ‘til you make it” might not work out. You try to put on a brave face, but there’s always a part of you that feels a bit underqualified to be doing what they pay you to do. After all, the ultimate consequence for being found out as a bit of a fraud is that your employer will fire you and you’ll have to tell the wife and kids that ramen and canned tuna fish are going to on the menu for a while. Now you have two options here: you either a) continue to stick it out and hope for the best, or you b) apply to be a scheduler in th...Read More

MLS GW4 Tips Fantasy Major League Soccer

MLS GW4 Tips Fantasy Major League Soccer THIS WEEKS DEADLINE IS SATURDAY 25th MARCH AT 6pm UK TIME This shouldn’t be a long article. As a matter of fact, this shouldn’t be an article at all. You see, the MLS just can’t help itself. There is a fundamental problem within the hierarchy of the MLS that refuses to conform to certain norms within the footballing world. And it’s because of statements like this that will ensure I’ll be writing for you all here for years to come instead of ever getting a chance to write a fluff piece on the MLS site. The major football leagues are on a break this weekend to allow for international duty. England has taken the weekend off. I imagine Germany, Scotland, Spain and the rest followed suit. Even Mexico took a little break. But the MLS? They just couldn’t d...Read More

MLS GW3 Tips Fantasy Major League Soccer

MLS GW3 Tips Fantasy Major League Soccer THIS WEEKS DEADLINE IS SATURDAY 18th MARCH AT 6pm UK TIME GW2 was the round when the scores actually started to ‘count’. Well, unless you were in H2H leagues – because those scores stayed in place from the first round. But the classic scoring reset itself. Listen folks, this is the MLS. If you’re participating and you’re active in the league and the game, you just have to accept that some things are going to be a bit off. There’s no other way around it. All in all though, GW2 was a fun week to watch. Even though the league says there’s no way that they could do a winter schedule like everybody else in the world, we had a snow game in Minnesota that was so unique and had so much scoring that the league couldn’t stop gushing about how great it w...Read More

MLS GW2 Tips Fantasy Major League Soccer

MLS GW2 Tips Fantasy Major League Soccer THIS WEEKS DEADLINE IS SATURDAY 11th MARCH AT 7pm UK TIME Well, depending on your point of view, the Opening Week Challenge was either a complete success – or a complete failure. In one sense, having a one-off challenge where just one person wins is a bit of a letdown; to win the prize felt more like hoping for your lottery ticket to win than anything else. But at the same time, with the inclusion of two new teams into the league and a slew of new players to look at on already established squads, it was actually kind of nice to see players in action before scores started counting against us. So your feelings on GW1 will largely depend on whether you’re a glass half-full or half-empty type of person. All of that being said, one thing that is un...Read More
