The most recent MLS fantasy news from RotoWire.
Fantasy AnalysisHusidic is going to find playing time hard to come by when he does return to full fitness, so his continued absence isn't likely to affect too many fantasy teams.
Fantasy AnalysisVillarreal started the Galaxy's USL match last Sunday, with the expectation that he would be back for Friday's match. With the Galaxy off next weekend, his next opportunity to play an MLS match will be Sept. 12 against the Impact.
Fantasy AnalysisAlashe left last weekend's match against D.C. United with the injury and it'll cost him another game, with his next opportunity to play coming next Saturday against the Union.
Fantasy AnalysisPerez Garcia is a consistent starter when he's fully fit, and his position on the bench Friday certainly makes him an unsavory fantasy option, but it's a step in the right direction to get his starting job back next Saturday against Philadelphia.
Fantasy AnalysisKennedy was a surprising scratch from last week's game in Vancouver but it turns out FC Dallas had been keeping his right knee strain under wraps until official lineups needed to be published. If the netminder is unable to play Saturday then Jesse Gonzalez will be in line for just the second start of his MLS career.
Fantasy AnalysisDiaz sat out last week against Vancouver but apparently his quad injury isn't severe enough to immediately be ruled out for this coming Saturday. His status won't be made clear until lineups are officially announced ahead of kickoff but Rolando Escobar will be waiting in the wings if Diaz is deemed unfit.
Fantasy AnalysisHamid sat out last week against the Earthquakes but another absence would be fairly surprising since manager Ben Olsen was simply allowing his goalkeeper to rest in preparation for the final stretch of the season. If he's ruled out for whatever reason, Andrew Dykstra will almost certainly receive another start in net.
Fantasy AnalysisEspindola sat out the last three games with a sprained left knee but he's returned to training and seems to be in line for a comeback. He almost always starts when healthy, so a direct return to the starting XI alongside Chris Rolfe and Alvaro Saborio is not out of question.
Fantasy AnalysisHiguain faces a late fitness test ahead of Saturday's game and his availability won't be made clear until official lineups are published shortly before kickoff. If he's unable to play, Cedrick Mabwati could be given his first MLS start.
Fantasy AnalysisJones was dealing with a tight groin earlier in the week but has drastically improved over just a few days and seems to be in store for his 21st start of the season Saturday.
