This is the home of MLS (Major League Soccer) fantasy football, FF247 style! We have a beginners guide and we will keep you up to date with any major developments throughout the MLS campaign as well as regular updates on our very own MLS league and Team.

MLS GW30 Tips Fantasy Major League Soccer

MLS GW30 Tips Fantasy Major League Soccer GW29 went off as many thought it would – which is odd, because the MLS is rarely ever predictable. Seattle and Portland won at home. Colorado earned a clean sheet and yet couldn’t score a goal to save their lives. Bruce Arena pulled out a road draw while hiding a key ‘injury’ in his squad. Frank Lampard got hurt again. And Jozy Altidore rose above his skill level to keep Toronto atop the Eastern Conference. Oh yeah, Landon Donovan scored too. All in all it was a pretty pedestrian set of affairs this past week. Do we dare hope for more of the same this round? This is the last round before another difficult set of scheduling takes over, so maybe we’ll get lucky, right?

MLS GW26 Tips Fantasy Major League Soccer

MLS GW26 Tips Fantasy Major League Soccer “…even if you do make the right moves, you could still be wrong.” — Guy Sanchez, GW25 MLS Tips article I called it folks. You knew it was coming, and I knew it was coming, and we still act surprised when this game completely punches you right in the face while throwing your plans out the window. In case you missed it, several of our big players in the league got rotated out during the midweek matches. Absent from starting lineups were Clint Dempsey, Jordan Morris, Robbie Keane, Steven Gerrard and Giovani dos Santos. Some subbed in late, but for the most part, several pieces of our teams that we were banking on to guide us through this landmine-infested stretch of bye weeks failed us. Not a lot you can do about it except dust yourself of...Read More

MLS GW25 Tips Fantasy Major League Soccer

MLS GW25 Tips Fantasy Major League Soccer This weeks deadline is Wednesday 24th August 7.30PM EDT. That’s American time – add 5 hours here in the UK to make it Thursday 12.30AM. Roughly! GW25 starts midweek on Wednesday, so you don’t get a lot of prep time to deal with this tricky situation of a round. In fact, I’m sure you’ll probably see more than a couple of Twitter posts about people missing the trade deadline altogether. With the MLS lulling us into a false sense of scheduling normalcy for a bit, and the FPL season really getting into our daily lives, this has the chance to be one of those gameweeks that you can make up a bit of ground in just by making simple trades to bring in active players. But don’t get me wrong, with all of the byes this week, and the MLS coaches’ ge...Read More

MLS GW24 Tips Fantasy Major League Soccer

MLS GW24 Tips Fantasy Major League Soccer This weeks deadline is Friday 19th August 11PM EDT. That’s American time – add 5 hours here in the UK to make it Saturday at 3AM. Roughly! If this thing of ours, this FMLS game, is starting to feel a bit arduous, just remember that we only have 11 more weeks to go. This is the final third, the home stretch. We can do this. This game is not going out with a whimper though, and it’s not going to be ‘normal’ for the duration of the year. The schedule and the format of the game is about to devolve into that wonky FMLS style that you’ve all come to love and hate so much. We had an odd week this past round – but suffice to say that those who made the move away from capping Giovinco on a gamble to climb the rankings are probably feeling ...Read More

MLS GW23 Tips Fantasy Major League Soccer

MLS GW23 Tips Fantasy Major League Soccer This weeks deadline is Friday 12th August 11PM EDT. That’s American time – add 5 hours here in the UK to make it Saturday at 3AM In some ways, GW22 was the round that the FMLS season died for many players. The highest score in the game was 160 points (much of that due to Giovinco doing what Giovinco does) – but also because Jorales finally paid off and teams that had Dempsey or Morris on a dare did very well. Most people scored over 100 points, but even if you did, you probably still saw red arrows. It’s an infuriating game to say the least. Probably none of your LA players paid off for you, and any NYC players you held over were pretty worthless in a 0-0 draw. And then Molino gets left off the roster with no explanation prior to ...Read More

MLS GW22 – Tips Fantasy Major League Soccer

MLS GW22 – Tips Fantasy Major League Soccer This weeks deadline is Wed 3rd August 7PM EDT. That’s American time – add 5 hours here in the UK to make it Thursday at midnight Any week that follows Frank Lampard being the highest fantasy scorer in the game is going to be a bit of a letdown. I mean honestly, how can this week even come close to stacking up to the previous round? It can’t and it won’t. So we just have go on knowing that the Frank Lampard hat-trick was probably the most unexpected high point of the season. In other news, the site team for FF247 moved up to 3rd place in the overall rankings for the game. I’d like to think that these articles that I write contribute to that score, but I know better. Mito uses a bit of black magic and luck and continually puts up ...Read More

MLS GW21 – Tips Fantasy Major League Soccer

MLS GW21 – Tips Fantasy Major League Soccer This weeks deadline is Sat 30th July 3PM EDT. That’s American time – add 5 hours here in the UK to make it Sat at 8PM The MLS isn’t in the habit of making their scheduling coincide with perfectly timed fantasy articles – and that’s kind of the situation we have on our hands again this week. Full disclosure: this article is being written prior to the MLS All Star game vs. Arsenal. Now, we could’ve waited until after the AS game to check on injuries and any players that played heavy minutes, but that would’ve meant having this article posted for a single day before the round locked. There’s no perfect solution, so we’ll just get this out there, and then the burden of being in the know about injuries from the AS game falls to...Read More

MLS GW20 – Tips Fantasy Major League Soccer

MLS GW20 – Tips Fantasy Major League Soccer This weeks deadline is Fri 22nd July 11.00PM EDT. That’s American time – add 5 hours here in the UK to make it Sat at 4.00AM Well, it’s finally happened. The FPL game has opened up and you can already feel the apathy towards the MLS game gaining momentum. I get it, no judgements here. Who doesn’t want to finally get their hands on a shiny new FPL squad? Who doesn’t want to try to balance Aguero’s salary against a budget defense? Which of you can’t wait to prove your genius by getting that newly transferred player that’s actually going to produce in GW1? I count myself with all of you. But we do have this MLS game to see out. If you’ve made it this far into the year, what’s another 14 rounds? With that being said, the MLS game di...Read More

MLS GW17 – Tips Fantasy Major League Soccer

MLS GW17 – Tips Fantasy Major League Soccer This weeks deadline is Sat 9th July at 1am GMT. (So Friday night going into Saturday morning basically for our UK users) As of the writing of this article, the New England v. NYC game has yet to go off to close out the previous round. But does it really matter at this point? Chances are that somebody you need from the last game of Round 16 may get benched or play limited minutes anyway, so I won’t get my hopes up (or put off writing the article any longer than I have to). And, while we’re on the subject of chances, it’s highly doubtful that you took a chance on several of the players currently on the Dream Team. In all of our preparations for the DGW and for the byes, the MLS slapped us once more in the face with players scoring big points ...Read More

MLS GW16 – Tips Fantasy Major League Soccer

MLS GW16 – Tips Fantasy Major League Soccer This weeks deadline is Sat 2nd July at 1am GMT. (So Friday night basically!) Before we get into this week’s MLS issues, let’s take a brief look back at some of the craziness that happened to us during DGW15. First of all, we had four teams on a double (LA, NYRB, PHI, RSL), and we thought very highly of the prospects for those four teams. But when you look at the Dream Team for the week, you’ll see that only three DGW players actually made the list. The only LA player on the list is their goalkeeper. The only NYRB player on the list is Gideon Baah, a defender who has played a total of 447 minutes this year for his team. Oh, and the only Philly representative on the list is some dude named Roland Alberg. And this Alberg scored four goals duri...Read More

MLS GW15 – Tips Fantasy Major League Soccer

MLS GW15 – Tips Fantasy Major League Soccer This week gets back to ‘normal’ in a sense. We have four DGW teams to choose from and the week starts on Wednesday (7pm ET). Enjoy this week while you can. We have a couple of DGW selections next week – and then we have to try to play the standard game for a while without a boost of double-match action. And if this last round is any indication of the types of scores we might be seeing going forward, it’s a bit worrying. #1) Know your DGW teams This week we get (what we thought were) some good teams to choose from for our DGW rosters. LA, NYRB, Philly and RSL are all playing twice. Philly and New York are 1 and 2 in the Eastern Conference, and RSL and LA are both in the playoff spots in the West. So it’s good to remember that you’re no...Read More

MLS GW13 – Tips Fantasy Major League Soccer

MLS GW13 – Tips Fantasy Major League Soccer Let’s be honest here, this article doesn’t need to be very long because there isn’t a whole lot that needs to be said about this GW in FMLS. For starters, if you love to watch football, why wouldn’t you be watching the international friendlies that are going off on Wednesday instead of a few MLS games? Spain kicks off the day, Poland v Netherlands and a Belgium match will round out the middle of the schedule, and then the night will be capped off with Mexico v Chile? C’mon. It’s not even a question for even casual fans. And then you have to take into account that the MLS is giving 8 teams a bye for the round. Somehow, 8 teams were afforded a bye week…but 12 teams have to make a push to get some points. Does it make sense? Of course no...Read More
