Latest Major League Soccer Fantasy News

The most recent MLS fantasy news from RotoWire.

Jermain Defoe    F    Toronto FC
Defoe is expected to have surgery on his injured groin during the offseason, MLSSoccer.com reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Defoe missed 14 games this season due to the nagging groin injury, and while he will have surgery to correct the issue, it's unclear if he'll remain with TFC after a season ripe with rumors that he was looking for a way out just months after transferring from English Premier League side Tottenham.
Obafemi Martins    F    Seattle Sounders FC
Martins signed a contract extension this week that will increase his salary to more than $3 million per season, ESPN FC reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Martins has had an excellent season for Seattle, scoring 17 goals and making a strong case for MVP. He has been a quick hit after transferring from La Liga side Levante on a 3 million transfer fee just last year.
DeAndre Yedlin    D    Seattle Sounders FC
Yedlin told ESPN FC this week that he could join Tottenham in January instead of staying in Seattle until this summer.

Fantasy Analysis

Yedlin signed with Tottenham this summer with the initial expectation that he would join Spurs next summer, if not January 2016 after another season with the Sounders. However, with Kyle Walker and Kyle Naughton both battling fitness issues, Yedlin could join now to help fill the void. He has reportedly applied for a Latvian passport and could make the move if it is approved. Yedlin's Latvian passport would not affect his playing status for the U.S. men's national team.
Landon Donovan    F    Los Angeles Galaxy
Donovan picked up the 136th assist of his MLS career Saturday against Toronto, breaking a tie with former New England Revolution star coach Steve Ralston.

Fantasy Analysis

Donovan had three assists last weekend against the Red Bulls and is now the MLS all-time leader in goals and assists. Donovan, who has already announced that he will retire at the end of the season, leads MLS with a career-high 19 assists this season.
Carlos Bocanegra    D    Chivas USA
Bocanegra announced Thursday that he will retire at the end of the MLS season, ESPN FC reports.

Fantasy Analysis

The former U.S. national team captain has spent 15 years in professional soccer, while appearing in the 2006 and 2010 World Cups. His 110 national team appearances made him the 12th player in history with at least 100 caps for the U.S.
Jermaine Jones    M    New England Revolution
Jones signed a designated player contract with the New England Revolution of Major League Soccer on Sunday, MLSSoccer.com reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Jones' stock rose considerably after a number of fine performances for the U.S. during the World Cup. He was heavily linked to the Chicago Fire earlier this summer, but apparently ended up with the Revs following a blind draw between the two clubs. He was out of contract after his deal with Turkish side Besiktas expired in June, and he'll join the Revs immediately.
Todd Dunivant    D    Los Angeles Galaxy
Dunivant will be back in the starting lineup Saturday at left back, Galaxy Insider reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Dunivant has been nursing various injuries this season and looked out of form earlier this week, but with Robbie Rogers out again he'll be pressed back into action.
Robbie Rogers    F/M    Los Angeles Galaxy
Rogers will miss a second consecutive game Saturday with a quadriceps injury, Galaxy Insider reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Rogers has been a revelation as the left back for the Galaxy, but he got hurt last week when the Galaxy got waxed by Columbus, and his presence was missed earlier this week when the Galaxy squeaked by Colorado.
DeAndre Yedlin    D    Seattle Sounders FC
Yedlin officially signed a four-year contract with Tottenham on Wednesday after transferring from the Sounders of Major League Soccer, although he will stay with Seattle until joining Spurs for the 2015-16 Premier League season.

Fantasy Analysis

Yedlin was a long-shot to make the US Men's National Team for this summer's World Cup, but Yedlin made an impact in his multiple appearances off the bench for the Americans. At just 21 years old, he has a bright future ahead of him, and he'll be able to give Tottenham a nice boost in 2015. He primarily plays as an attacking defender, but he could see time as a midfielder as well.
DeAndre Yedlin    D    Seattle Sounders FC
Yedlin has completed a medical and is set to join Tottenham, though he will remain with the Sounders for the remainder of the MLS season, Goal.com reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Yedlin shot to fame with the USA during the World Cup, with clubs around the world immediately showing their interest thereafter. The speedy defender will have his work cut out for him in the Premier League though, especially with Kyle Walker and Danny Rose in the mix at the full-back position for Spurs. Yedlin is expect to head to White Hart Lane in January.
