RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

De Jong was red carded for a studs up challenge in the 2-0 win over Vancouver on Monday.

De Jong showed why he is nicknamed "The Lawnmower" when he flew in studs up on Blas Perez in the 74th minute. At the moment he is eligible to return July 15 against Houston, but could be facing further disciplinary action.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

De Jong returned to training for the Galaxy and could play in Sunday's match against San Jose, according to manager Bruce Arena.

It hasn't been the best season for De Jong. Before injuring his knee, he was suspended for three matches. Nevertheless, De Jong isn't much of a fantasy option in his defensive midfield role. Most of the scoring on the Galaxy is left to the forwards or Steven Gerrard.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

De Jong is out Sunday against the Revs because of a knee injury, according to Adam Serrano of the team's official website.

De Jong was considered doubtful due to an injury picked up in training, and his absence will allow Jeff Larentowicz to get a start.

May 6, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

De Jong is not expected to play Sunday against the Revolution because of an undisclosed injury, according to Kevin Baxter of the Los Angeles Times.

De Jong must have suffered his injury during training, as he's been suspended for the last three games due to a dangerous tackle. On the plus side for the Galaxy, Steven Gerrard is expected to return from his injury.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

The MLS Disciplinary Committee has suspended de Jong for three games and issued an undisclosed fine for his foul against Darlington Nagbe in Los Angeles' match against Portland on Apr. 10, reports.

De Jong will miss matches against Houston on Apr. 15, Real Salt Lake on Apr. 23 and at Sporting Kansas City on May 1. Fantasy owners should look for the rehabbing Steven Gerrard to be rushed back into the club's starting lineup as a result.

April 13, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Coach Bruce Arena confirmed that De Jong will be suspended for the game against Houston on Friday.

The suspension was expected after De Jong's tackle on Darlington Nagbe in Sunday's game against Portland. While it is confirmed that he will miss Friday's game, it has yet to be announced how long De Jong's suspension will be, but it will likely be more than just the one game.

April 11, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

De Jong is expected to be suspended for his dangerous tackle on the Timbers' Darlington Nagbe during Sunday's match, according to Grant Wahl of Sports Illustrated.

De Jong was given a yellow card for the incident, which was very surprising given the severity of the tackle and the fact that Nagbe had to be stretchered off the pitch. The length of De Jong's suspension is unclear, though it looks likely to be more than just one game.
