Latest Major League Soccer Fantasy News

The most recent MLS fantasy news from RotoWire.

Brad Evans    M/D    Seattle Sounders FC
Evans may sit out Tuesday's friendly against Celaya FC, as he continues to recover from a hamstring injury.

Fantasy Analysis

Evans has been unable to play after meeting up with the team last week, and while he may continue to sit, he's fully expected to be fit for the season-opener on March 6 against Sporting KC.
Marcelo Sarvas    M    D.C. United
Sarvas was traded to D.C. United on Monday in exchange for targeted allocation money and a 2018 conditional draft pick.

Fantasy Analysis

Sarvas started 21 games last season after recovering from knee surgery, finishing with two goals and one assist in his only season with the Rapids.
Nigel de Jong    M/D    Los Angeles Galaxy
De Jong signed with the Galaxy on Saturday on a free transfer from AC Milan, the Los Angeles Times reports.

Fantasy Analysis

De Jong was released from the final two-and-a-half years of his contract with the Italian giants, allowing him to sign a one-year deal with Los Angeles for a non-DP spot, though it is believed the club used target allocation money. The Galaxy have made number of big-name signings this offseason, including Ashley Cole and Jelle Van Damme, though they are clearly all on the latter stages of their careers.
Matt Miazga    D    Chelsea
Miazga will not be loaned out by Chelsea after he joins the club this month. "He will be one of the squad members for the rest of the season," manager Guus Hiddink said Friday. "A young guy stepping up to the national team, and if you have young players you can see what they are capable of in training."

Fantasy Analysis

Miazga has not officially signed with Chelsea yet, though it is expected to be completely in the coming days after transferring from the New York Red Bulls. Miazga is one of the top American prospects, and while he will get a chance to be with Chelsea's first team, it'll be very tough for him to get regular playing time ahead of Kurt Zouma, Jason Terry or, to a lesser extent, Gary Cahill.
Ashley Cole    D    Los Angeles Galaxy
Cole signed with the Galaxy on Wednesday.

Fantasy Analysis

Cole most recently was employed by AS Roma the past two years but previously saw stops at Chelsea, Crystal Palace, and Arsenal. He'll be a surefire starter for the Galaxy in 2016 while having plenty of opportunities for clean sheets but he isn't necessarily considered an offensive threat.
Matt Miazga    D    Chelsea
Miazga is expected to sign with Chelsea this week, ESPN FC reports.

Fantasy Analysis

There have been rumors for quite some time that Miazga was set to join a Premier League club during the winter transfer window, and the latest landing spot has him at Stamford Bridge. Miazga, 20, was excellent with the Red Bulls last season and has already made his international debut with the U.S. Men's National Team. With John Terry toward the end of his career and Gary Cahill struggling to find his previous form, Miazga certainly has a chance to compete for first-team football alongside Kurt Zouma.
Jack Harrison    M    New York City FC
Harrison will not participate in preseason training due to a pelvic injury, NYC FC announced Monday.

Fantasy Analysis

Harrison, the No. 1 overall pick in this year's draft, doesn't have a defined spot yet, as the 19-year-old has plenty of competition for a starting job, though the club traded up to get him, so he's clearly a huge part of their plans. Until he begins training, it'll be tough to know when he will make his MLS debut.
Andre Blake    G    Philadelphia Union
Blake will be the starter for the Union this season, according to Kevin Kinkead of CBS 3 in Philadelphia.

Fantasy Analysis

Blake made six appearances last season, posting two clean sheets and 26 saves while allowing nine goals. The 2014 No. 1 overall pick was certainly the favorite to win the spot, with manager Jim Curtain confirming it Monday.
Chris Klute    D    Portland Timbers
Klute underwent surgery on his meniscus during the offseason, but he is expected to rejoin training in the coming days, according to Jamie Goldberg of The Oregonian.

Fantasy Analysis

Klute was a popular fantasy option last season when he got starts for the Crew, though they were few and far between. He'll get a shot at more starts with Portland this season, though a full guaranteed job isn't certain yet.
Jordan Morris    F    Seattle Sounders FC
Morris officially signed with the Sounders on Thursday.

Fantasy Analysis

Morris recently left Stanford and was on a trial at Werder Bremen before ultimately deciding to sign with Seattle as a homegrown player. Morris, who played in the Sounders academy, won the NCAA title this season and has already played seven times for the U.S. Men's National Team. With Clint Dempsey and Obafemi Martins to learn from, big things will be expected from Morris right away.
