The most recent MLS fantasy news from RotoWire.

Andre Blake    G    Philadelphia Union
Blake made one save and conceded one goal during Saturday's 1-1 draw with the Rapids.

Fantasy Analysis

Philadelphia was on the back foot for most of the match, but they only allowed two shots on goal and managed to salvage a point with a late goal. Blake and company have played extremely well of late, and the 'keeper has now gone seven matches without tasting defeat and has allowed multiple goals just two times since mid-April. A Wednesday fixture with the Crew is next on the schedule.
Zac MacMath    G    Colorado Rapids
MacMath was beaten by the only shot he faced during Saturday's 1-1 draw with the Union.

Fantasy Analysis

Colorado dominated the game, limiting Philadelphia to just one shot on goal, but they let a one-goal lead slip away in stoppage time just three minutes after opening the scoring. While the draw is slightly disappointing, MacMath has been on a roll during his five-match unbeaten streak, as he has allowed just two goals in that stretch. He will draw a favorable matchup with the low-scoring Fire on Jun. 18.
Quincy Amarikwa    F    San Jose Earthquakes
Amarikwa (hamstring) is in the starting lineup Saturday against Dallas.

Fantasy Analysis

Amarikwa has missed the last four games with the injury, but he has recovered enough to be in the starting lineup Saturday. Amarikwa could have fantasy value in a potent San Jose attack, but he has not produced much possibly limiting his value.
Maximiliano Urruti    F    FC Dallas
Urruti (ankle) is available off the bench Saturday against San Jose.

Fantasy Analysis

Urruti has missed the last two games with the injury, but he practiced all week and is available off the bench. If Urruti can get playing time he could have fantasy value because he can produce on offense.

Hedges (knee) is in the starting lineup Saturday against San Jose.

Fantasy Analysis

Hedges has not seen action in the last seven games, but he is back in the starting lineup Saturday. His fantasy value is still limited because he is not involved on offense.
Mauro Diaz    M    FC Dallas
Diaz (illness) is in the starting lineup Saturday against San Jose.

Ilsinho (hamstring) is available off the bench Saturday against Colorado.

Fantasy Analysis

Ilsinho has struggled with injuries this season, missing the last three games with the hamstring injury, but he is available for Saturday's game. His fantasy value will be limited coming off the bench, but even if he were starting his fantasy value is limited until he can produce on offense.
Fanendo Adi    F    Portland Timbers
Adi (hamstring) is available off the bench Saturday against Chicago.

Fantasy Analysis

Adi missed last weekends game with the injury, and was questionable for a return Saturday, but he has recovered enough to be on the bench. If Adi comes on he could provide some fantasy points since before his injury he was one of the top forwards in MLS.
Sebastian Giovinco    F    Toronto FC
Giovinco left Saturday's match early with what appeared to be a groin injury.

Fantasy Analysis

Giovinco went down holding his inner thigh or groin, and limped off the field, after being subbed out. Ashtone Morgan was brought on in his place. It will be a big blow to not only Toronto, but fantasy players as well, if Giovinco has to miss an extended period of time. He has been dominate this season with eight goals and five assists. Morgan could fill in if he is to miss more games.
Baggio Husidic    M    Los Angeles Galaxy
Husidic is available off the bench Saturday against Montreal.

Fantasy Analysis

Husidic was expected be on international duty and unavailable for Saturday's game, but he will instead be on the bench. If he can get playing time he will have an opportunity to produce fantasy points since he is involved in the offense.
