Latest Major League Soccer Fantasy News

The most recent MLS fantasy news from RotoWire.

DeAndre Yedlin    D    Seattle Sounders FC
Yedlin officially signed a four-year contract with Tottenham on Wednesday after transferring from the Sounders of Major League Soccer, although he will stay with Seattle until joining Spurs for the 2015-16 Premier League season.

Fantasy Analysis

Yedlin was a long-shot to make the US Men's National Team for this summer's World Cup, but Yedlin made an impact in his multiple appearances off the bench for the Americans. At just 21 years old, he has a bright future ahead of him, and he'll be able to give Tottenham a nice boost in 2015. He primarily plays as an attacking defender, but he could see time as a midfielder as well.
DeAndre Yedlin    D    Seattle Sounders FC
Yedlin has completed a medical and is set to join Tottenham, though he will remain with the Sounders for the remainder of the MLS season, Goal.com reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Yedlin shot to fame with the USA during the World Cup, with clubs around the world immediately showing their interest thereafter. The speedy defender will have his work cut out for him in the Premier League though, especially with Kyle Walker and Danny Rose in the mix at the full-back position for Spurs. Yedlin is expect to head to White Hart Lane in January.
Landon Donovan    F    Los Angeles Galaxy
Donovan will retire at the end of the current MLS season, ESPN FC reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Donovan is already Major League Soccer's all-time leading scorer, and after failing to make the US Men's National Team for this summer's World Cup, it's tough to say he's got anything left to accomplish in America. It's been a storied career and he easily goes down as one of the best players ever in US history.
Jermain Defoe    F    Toronto FC
Defoe will miss the next 2-to-3 weeks due to a groin strain and he will not play in the MLS All-Star Game against Bayern Munich, the club's official website reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Defoe has been excellent for Toronto this season, scoring 11 goals and assisting on two others.
Yannick Djalo    F    San Jose Earthquakes
Djalo left Saturday's win over the Seattle Sounders with a quad injury.

Fantasy Analysis

Djalo, on loan from Benfica, has been on and off the pitch due to nagging leg injuries this season. When healthy, he has nine goals in three games.
Todd Dunivant    D    Los Angeles Galaxy
Dunivant (abdomen) was available as a sub in Saturday's win over Portland, though he did not play.

Fantasy Analysis

Dunivant might have a hard time getting his job back, as Robbie Rogers has taken over the left back job with aplomb.
Gyasi Zardes    F    Los Angeles Galaxy
Zardes scored his eighth goal of the season in the Galaxy win over Portland on Saturday, tying the game in extra time of the first half.

Fantasy Analysis

Seven of Zardes' eight goals this season have come since June 8. He began the year as a part-time player, even sitting out two games early on the season, but he's the last seven games and played the full game in all but one of those games. The Galaxy are playing their best soccer of the season right now, have nearly everyone healthy and in form, and Zardes is a big part of that.
Robbie Keane    F    Los Angeles Galaxy
Keane had two goals, including the game-winner, and an assist in the Galaxy win over Portland on Saturday afternoon.

Fantasy Analysis

Keane and the Galaxy are in great form right now. They dominated most of the run of play in the game. Keane's second goal was on a penalty kick, the first successful conversion in four tries this season by the Galaxy.
Frank Lampard    M    Manchester City
Lampard is expected to be sent on a six-month loan to Manchester City ahead of the 2015 MLS season, the BBC reports.

Fantasy Analysis

With New York City FC not set to begin play until the 2015 season, Lampard will join the parent club to keep his fitness. Lampard could be available to the club for Premier League and Champions League matches, although he is unlikely to have a major fantasy impact in either.
Frank Lampard    M    Manchester City
After being introduced by New York City FC yesterday Lampard may undertake a temporary loan to Melbourne City as he waits for the next Major League Soccer season to begin, reports Sky Sports.

Fantasy Analysis

While the current MLS season is underway, New York City FC doesn't enter the league until next year. Lampard said there haven't been specific loan discussions yet, but that a short-term loan is a possibility.
