Latest Major League Soccer Fantasy News

The most recent MLS fantasy news from RotoWire.

Robbie Keane    F    Los Angeles Galaxy
Keane could return from his groin injury to play Friday against the Dynamo, MLSSoccer.com reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Keane finally returned to fully training this week and looks poised to make his return after almost seven weeks out. The Galaxy have struggled to score goals without Keane, so his return will be a huge boost to both L.A. and fantasy owners.
Jozy Altidore    F    Toronto FC
Altidore will be sidelined for 4-to-5 weeks after suffering a hamstring injury Saturday against the Revolution.

Fantasy Analysis

Altidore suffered the injury while attempting a shot and came off immediately after. It wasn't the same reaction as the one he had during last summer's World Cup, but the end result is similar. While the timeline will allow him to return before the Gold Cup this summer, it's unclear if he'll be fully fit for it.
Innocent    F    San Jose Earthquakes
Innocent will miss 4-to-6 months after undergoing left knee surgery Wednesday to repair a torn meniscus, the San Jose Mercury News reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Innocent had been sidelined with what was believed to be a shoulder injury, but the knee issue is clearly much more serious. His absence comes at a tough time for San Jose, who will also be without midfielder Tommy Thompson, who is gone for the U-20 World Cup.
Roger Espinoza    M/D    Sporting Kansas City
Espinoza will not play Saturday against the Rapids because of a groin injury.

Fantasy Analysis

There wasn't much indication before the math that Espinoza was hurt, so his absence will surely force fantasy owners to make a quick switch. The team has not released the severity of the ailment, so it's unclear how much time Espinoza will miss.
Jozy Altidore    F    Toronto FC
Altidore came off in the 19th minute of Saturday's match against New England with a suspected hamstring injury.

Fantasy Analysis

Altidore suffered a hamstring injury early in last summer's World Cup and missed the rest of the tournament with the ailment. He's been very productive of late, scoring three times in his last three games, but he finished Saturday without attempting a single shot.
Obafemi Martins    F    Seattle Sounders FC
Martins is not expected to play Saturday against Vancouver because of a leg injury, the Seattle Times reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Martins is dealing with a bone bruise, and while X-rays came back negative, he's still feeling pain and was unable to train this week. Additionally, he's no guarantee to train next week either, which makes him questionable to play May 23 against Sporting KC.
Graham Zusi    M    Sporting Kansas City
Zusi is out Saturday against Colorado because of a concussion.

Fantasy Analysis

Zusi suffered the head injury last weekend against D.C. United, and he has not resumed training yet.
Jordan Allen    M    Real Salt Lake
Allen is starting Saturday against Montreal.

Fantasy Analysis

There was some concern that Allen could miss the match if he had to leave for the U-20 World Cup in New Zealand, but he will play Saturday and then leave for the tournament, allowing fantasy owners one more game before the break.
Matt Hedges    D    FC Dallas
Hedges was solid in defense on Friday, helping FC Dallas to a clean sheet in a scoreless draw with the New York Red Bulls.

Fantasy Analysis

While he wasn't as involved on set pieces as he normally is, the 25-year-old was instrumental in keeping a dangerous New York attack at bay and continues on as a reliable fantasy defender who is capable of contributing at both ends of the pitch. Hedges will look to continue his strong season against the Montreal Impact next week.
Dan Kennedy    G    FC Dallas
Kennedy made three saves en route to his first clean sheet of the season in Friday's scoreless draw with New York.

Fantasy Analysis

The 32-year-old was never really put to the test in this one, but was up to the task whenever his name was called. Kennedy is still unbeaten on the season, and should be in goal once again as FC Dallas takes on Montreal next week.
