The most recent MLS fantasy news from RotoWire.

Brad Davis    M    Sporting Kansas City
Davis scored the the lone goal for Kansas City in the 1-1 draw against LA on Sunday.

Fantasy Analysis

The goal was Davisí second of the season, and his first since becoming a starting midfielder. After coming back from injury he has been a crucial to the offense of Kansas City creating shots both for himself and others. He is yet to earn an assist, but if he continues to create opportunities his fantasy value should increase.
Graham Zusi    M    Sporting Kansas City
Zusi earned an assist in Sundayís 1-1 draw with LA.

Fantasy Analysis

Zusi earned his third assist, and just his first points since April 9. He already has more than half the assists he had last season, but he has yet to put the ball into the back of the net. If Zusi is going to increase his fantasy value he will need to begin scoring.
Matt Besler    D    Sporting Kansas City
Besler earned an assist in the 1-1 draw with LA on Sunday.

Fantasy Analysis

The assist was Beslerís first of the season, and just his fourth in the last two. He delivered a long ball to Graham Zusi, who headed the ball to Brad Davis for the goal. Besler is known as one of the best defenders in MLS, but he does not offer much on offense limiting his fantasy potential in most formats.
Tim Melia    G    Sporting Kansas City
Melia gave up one goal, and had no saves, in the 1-1 draw with LA on Sunday.

Fantasy Analysis

Melia gave up the goal on a chip shot by Giovani Dos Santos. He was not tested much more, with the backline giving up just four shots. Melia has been one of the top goalkeepers, and if the backline continues to give up minimal shots he will remain a good fantasy option.
Ashley Cole    D    Los Angeles Galaxy
Cole accrued two yellow cards, earning him a red card in Sundayís 1-1 draw against Kansas City.

Fantasy Analysis

Cole will be suspended for the next match May 8. His replacement could be either Leonardo or Nigel de Jong coming off his own suspension.
Brian Rowe    G    Los Angeles Galaxy
Rowe gave up one goal, and had no saves, in the draw with Kansas City on Sunday.

Fantasy Analysis

Rowe did not see many shots with their only being one shot on goal by Kansas City. Rowe failed to stop the only shot on goal, but he has still only given up more than one goal in once. He has been one of the top goalkeepers in MLS, and one of the best fantasy options.
Gyasi Zardes    F    Los Angeles Galaxy
Zardes earned an assist in the 1-1 draw with Kansas City on Sunday.

Fantasy Analysis

Zardes now has two assists on the season, half as many as he did all of last season. He is having a great start to the season and is one of the best fantasy options at the forward position.
Giovani Dos Santos    F/M    Los Angeles Galaxy
Dos Santos scored the lone goal for LA in the 1-1 draw against Kansas City on Sunday.

Fantasy Analysis

Dos Santos had a nice chip shot goal, for his fourth goal of the season. This was the third straight game that he has scored, after returning from his leg injury. He know has four goals in just five games on the season, and is one of the best forwards in MLS.
Michael Bradley    M    Toronto FC
Bradley had three tackles, one interception, and three crosses as Toronto fell 2-1 against Portland.

Fantasy Analysis

Bradley was not as dominant as he has been in previous matches this season, partly due to the fact that Portland attempted to exploit the wings. Expect more of the same when teams who utilize their width compete against a Toronto side who prefer to play more narrow.
Jake Gleeson    G    Portland Timbers
Gleeson made four key saves to earn his Portland Timbers a 2-1 victory over Toronto FC.

Fantasy Analysis

Gleeson was on fine form on Sunday, making several point-blank saves, frustrating Toronto's attack.
