RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Dempsey (hamstring) is starting Saturday against FC Dallas.

Dempsey was unable to play for the US Men's National Team over the international break due to the ailment, but he's back Saturday in a very big spot for Seattle against a Dallas squad that has been scoring well lately.

Dempsey suffered a right hamstring strain during training with the US Men's National Team on Monday and he will be sidelined for 2-to-3 weeks, USSoccer.com reports.

Dempsey will miss international friendlies against Denmark and Switzerland, with his return to an MLS pitch in question.

Dempsey took a game-high four shots and scored two goals during Seattle's 3-0 win over New England on Sunday.

Dempsey's first game from the penalty spot and his second came on a helpful pass from Obafemi Martins, who could have easily scored the goal himself. Dempsey looked downright dominant Sunday and should consistently be near the top of the midfield producers this season.

Dempsey scored in the 81st minute of the United States' 2-2 draw with Portugal at the World Cup on Sunday.

Dempsey was the lone striker Sunday with Jozy Altidore (hamstring) sidelined, and he was able to take a short Graham Zusi cross and direct it into the goal off his stomach. The score gave the US a 2-1 lead, which they ultimately squandered with just seconds remaining. Dempsey did not appear to be limited by his broken nose at all, and he did not even wear a mask during the game. He's found the back of the net in both of the US' games in Brazil and he'll be looking to make it three-for-three against Germany on Thursday. The US will advance to the knockout round with a win or a draw.

Dempsey, who suffered a broken nose in Monday's World Cup match against Ghana, has not decided if he will wear a protective mask Sunday against Portugal, USA Today reports.

Dempsey is obviously at a bigger risk of further injury if he goes without the mask, although many players say it is uncomfortable to wear it. Either way, Dempsey will be in the starting XI come Sunday.

Dempsey scored 35 seconds into USA's 2-1 win over Ghana in their opening match of the World Cup on Monday. However, he was kicked in the face in the first half and could have a broken nose.

Ghana controlled possession for most of the game, putting added importance on Dempsey's goal. He was clearly struggling to breath through his nose during post-match interviews, and he could be forced to wear a mask Sunday against Portugal.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Dempsey made it a staggering five goals in two games for Seattle in Saturday's 3-2 win over FC Dallas.

If Dempsey is not in your lineup, you may as well retire your Fantasy MLS career. A Clint Dempsey with a chip on his shoulder after the early two-game suspension is a very, very scary thing.
