Diaz took two shots and drew two fouls during FC Dallas' 3-0 loss at Seattle on Saturday.

Diaz has been very quiet of late, failing to score a goal or assist on one in five consecutive matches. Dallas as a whole have been brutal over that span, scoring just once as a team. Diaz is vital to their attack and will need to bounce back with the help of Fabian Castillo and Blas Perez if they're to get out of this funk.

Diaz did not practice Thursday, though head coach Oscar Pareja said Diaz was only being rested and he will play Friday against Sporting Kansas City, the Dallas Morning News reports.

Diaz has been instrumental for FC Dallas this season and has become an elite fantasy option in his own right. The team could be without Fabian Castillo, who is dealing with a knock, which could put even more pressure on Diaz to spark the attack.

Diaz continued his stellar play of late in Saturday's 2-1 victory over the Galaxy, setting up both of the team's goals to earn his third consecutive man of the match honor.

The Argentine has been exceptional over his last three games for FC Dallas, with two goals and three assists over that span. Diaz is proving his qualities as one of the better playmakers in MLS and will look to continue his fine run of form versus the New York Red Bulls next week.

Diaz put forth his second straight man of the match performance on Friday with two shots, a goal and an assist in FC Dallas' 4-1 victory over the Dynamo.

After missing nearly a month due to a leg injury, Diaz has accounted for two goals and an assist in his two games since, and has been vital to the FC Dallas attack. As long as the young Argentine can stay on the field, he should continue to play a large role.

Diaz took two shots and scored in the 31st minute of FC Dallas' 1-1 draw with the Rapids on Friday.

Fabian Castillo set up the goal after slicing through the Rapids' defense, leaving Diaz with a relatively open goal to shoot at. The goal was his first of the season, and came after he missed four games while fatigue. He lasted just 64 minutes, but his playing time will likely continue to build up.

Diaz, who has missed the last three games due to fatigue, said he is 100 percent fit and could feature Saturday against Toronto, MLSSoccer.com reports. “It was not an injury; it was more fatigue, and I decided to work with the coaches on strengthening instead of getting an injury," Díaz said. “It was just my entire lower body. It was fatigued from the preseason and the start of the season, and the decision was for me to strengthen everything so I do not pick up another injury.”

Dallas are 0-2-1 without Diaz, who many expected to be a major contributor this season. While they have plenty of attacking talent in Fabian Castillo, Blas Perez and Tesho Akindele, Diaz will surely be a huge boost when he does return.

Diaz scored in the 84th minute to rescue a 2-1 victory over Portland on Saturday.

Both teams went down to ten men, which really opened thing up for Diaz to do what he does in the midfield for Dallas. It was a fantastic strike to win it for FCD.

Diaz netted what would be the eventual winning goal for FCD in Saturday's 3-2 win over Montreal on Opening Day.

Diaz looked good for Dallas when he got a nice, short look a season ago. He went 88 minutes on Saturday and definitely appears to be a big part of Dallas' plans for 2014.
