The most recent MLS fantasy news from RotoWire.
Fantasy AnalysisDempsey scored twice in last weekend's match against Portland before being rested for the Wednesday game against Houston. The team did not release any other details about the situation, so it is unclear exactly how much time he will miss. Nelson Valdez could get more playing time in Dempsey's absence.
Fantasy AnalysisLodeiro has two goals and four assists over his last four games. He has been fantasy gold since joining the Sounders and will continue to be leaned upon as Seattle make a playoff push.
Fantasy AnalysisIvanschitz contributed his team leading seventh assist of the season and now has two in his last three appearances. He came off the bench in this one but should shift back into the starting XI on Sunday at Portland.
Fantasy AnalysisJones came off the bench in this one, likely to give him a breather in the midst of Seattle's busy schedule. The wing back has two goals and two assists on the season and figures to factor on the scoresheet even more as the Sounders make a playoff push.
Fantasy AnalysisFrei has allowed one goal in five straight matches. He's been solid in goal but hasn't kept a clean sheet since mid-July and faces a tall task at Portland on Sunday.
Fantasy AnalysisDespite this being the first goal for Wenger in nearly two months, he leads the Dynamo with five goals on the season. He's been inconsistent in both minutes and production but can make for a good differential play when given the start.
Fantasy AnalysisBruin has come off the bench in the last three games after starting 17 of 20 games earlier in the season. He's capable of chiming in with a goal from time to time but isn't recommended for fantasy purposes as long as he's coming off the bench.
Fantasy AnalysisThe five shots matched a career high and Clark seems to be taking on an increased role in the Dynamo attack lately. He scored a goal last game and has also scored in three straight against Saturday's opponent FC Dallas.
Fantasy AnalysisWillis was seconds away from his fourth clean sheet of the season when Nicolas Lodeiro struck for a 94th minute equalizer. It was a disappointing finish but Willis has been solid of late, having allowed one goal or less in his last nine appearances. Up next is another addition of the Texas Derby with FC Dallas coming to town on Saturday.
