The most recent MLS fantasy news from RotoWire.
Fantasy AnalysisMancosu only had 12 minutes to make an impact with the game already out of hand, and he did just that by latching onto a Patrice Bernier through ball in stoppage time before slotting it home to cap off the scoring. Mancosu opened his MLS goal account in just his second appearance since joining Montreal, and he appears to have earned a substitute role for the time being. He will likely begin next week's match versus DC United on the bench, but he could factor more heavily into the club's plans if he continues to impress.
Fantasy AnalysisWith more playing time Larentowicz has started to make himself a valuable option, now with five straight starts. He has a goal and assist in the last four matches. That said, he's still one of the last options to look at in the Galaxy midfield.
Fantasy AnalysisBernier held down his typical holding role Saturday, and he made a rare appearance on the scoresheet when he burst forward to set up Matteo Mancosu with a perfectly-weighted through ball in stoppage time. The assist was Bernier's first of the season, and he should not be viewed as an especially attractive fantasy option heading into next week's fixture with DC United.
Fantasy AnalysisEven though Dos Santos' numbers have taken a dive over the last couple months, he's still one of the most valuable players on the Galaxy. After traveling to Seattle next weekend, Dos Santos should be able to do something in one of the following home games.
Fantasy AnalysisPiatti was a force Sunday, as he got on the scoresheet with a superb half-volley in the 72nd minute just 20 minutes after slipping a through ball that Didier Drogba dispatched into the net to complete his hat-trick. Piatti could have had an even bigger game, but Andre Blake stuffed him from in close in the 42nd minute, although the rebound fell for Drogba to tap home. Piatti is in a superb run of form at the moment, with eight goals and two assists in his last nine matches, and he will look to keep it rolling next week versus DC United.
Fantasy AnalysisIt was business as usual for Keane who found a hole in the defense to put in Giovani dos Santos' cross just seven minutes into the match. The Galaxy have shown they can score anywhere and that includes Keane, who has two goals in the last two road matches.
Fantasy AnalysisNYC FC likely wanted to give Matarrita one more week of rest before returning so it wouldn't be surprising if he was back at practice this week and ready for next weekend's match.
Fantasy AnalysisOyongo was one of Montreal's most active players Saturday, and he took advantage of his freedom on the wing to pick out Didier Drogba for the opening goal of the match, before deftly chipping a cross to Ignacio Piatti in the 87th minute as the latter settled and smashed home a half-volley. Oyongo has been an attacking force of late, as he now has three helpers in his last two matches, and he will look to keep up his fine form next Sunday versus DC United.
Fantasy AnalysisA clean sheet was always going to be difficult for the Galaxy in this situation, but they still walked away with three points. The Galaxy are at Seattle next, but get back-to-back home matches afterward with at least one clean sheet a likelihood.
Fantasy AnalysisIt was a vintage performance from the veteran striker, who made his presence felt inside the penalty area and scored the first three goals of the match inside 51 minutes. Drogba had gone three matches without scoring, but Saturday's outburst brought him to an impressive eight goals and three assists in just 12 appearances this season and will look to ride this momentum into next Sunday's matchup with DC United.
