Latest Major League Soccer Fantasy News

The most recent MLS fantasy news from RotoWire.

Jozy Altidore    F    Toronto FC
Altidore picked up a red card against the Revolution on Saturday and is expected to be suspended for Wednesday's game against Orlando City, barring a repeal from the league.

Fantasy Analysis

Unless the league takes action ahead of Wednesday's game, Eriq Zavaleta has a chance to enter the starting XI as he plays in place of Altidore.
Collen Warner    M    Toronto FC
Warner (suspension) will be eligible to return Wednesday against Orlando City.

Fantasy Analysis

Warner sat out Saturday's game against the Revolution due to yellow card accumulation but will be expected to rejoin the starting XI when Toronto faces Orlando.
Guly do Prado    M   
Do Prado and the Fire mutually agreed to part ways Tuesday.

Fantasy Analysis

The Fire have dealt with multiple injuries this season but recently regained some key players which forced do Prado into a permanent role off the bench. He's now eligible to sign elsewhere, but it'll be unlikely for him to join another team in MLS and immediately see playing time.
Bright Dike    F   
Dike was waived by Toronto FC on Tuesday, Kurtis Larson of the Toronto Sun reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Dike only made 11 appearances for Toronto over the past three seasons, with a total of just 39 minutes coming in the past two years. The recent acquisition of Josh Williams ultimately forces Dike into expected free agency where he'll be able to sign elsewhere immediately.
Osvaldo Alonso    M    Seattle Sounders FC
Alonso is dealing with a hamstring injury but hasn't been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Galaxy, Matt Pentz of the Seattle Times reports.

Fantasy Analysis

The results of Alonso's MRI were made public but fortunately for him they didn't reveal anything that will threaten his long-term future. As for Sunday, he'll face a late fitness test ahead of kickoff while Lamar Neagle is the most likely candidate to move back into the starting XI if Alonso is deemed unfit to play.
Giles Barnes    F    Houston Dynamo
Barnes suffered a knock during Saturday's game against Sporting Kansas City but is still expected to play this Saturday against the Earthquakes, Darrell Lovell of MLSsoccer.com reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Barnes still managed to play the full 90 against SKC, so it would be surprising if he was ruled out against San Jose. Nevertheless, the capable midfielders of Leonel Miranda and Luis Garrido will be ready for extra minutes if Barnes is given the weekend off.
Will Bruin    F    Houston Dynamo
Bruin suffered a knock during Saturday's game against Sporting Kansas City but is still expected to play this Saturday against San Jose, Darrell Lovell of MLSsoccer.com reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Bruin seems like a sure bet to assume his normal role up front in the starting XI against the Earthquakes, but Cubo Torres will likely be the beneficiary if Bruin is ultimately deemed unfit to play Saturday.
Tyler Deric    G    Houston Dynamo
Deric suffered a knock during Saturday's game against Sporting Kansas City but is still expected to play this Saturday against San Jose, Darrell Lovell of MLSsoccer.com reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Deric's minor knock doesn't appear to be much of a concern but he'll still face a late fitness test Saturday and backup Joe Willis will be on hand if Deric is surprisingly ruled out.
Ricardo Clark    M    Houston Dynamo
Clark (hamstring) is not expected to play against the Earthquakes on Saturday, Darrell Lovell of MLSsoccer.com reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Clark picked up a hamstring injury during last weekend's game against Sporting Kansas City and had to prematurely exit the field in the 80th minute with a noticeable limp. During his expected absence, Cubo Torres, Luis Garrido, and Leonel Miranda could all see additional playing time.
Matt Hedges    D    FC Dallas
Hedges suffered a head injury during Sunday's game against the Fire, Stephen Hunt of The Dallas Morning News reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Luckily for Hedges, FC Dallas doesn't play again until Aug. 15 against the Galaxy, at which point he'll likely face a late fitness test to determine his availability.
