Feilhaber attempted two shots, put in four crosses and earned an assist in Sunday's away loss at Dallas.

Feilhaber helped Sporting KC jump out to an early lead when he fired in a cross that Lawrence Olum nodded home, giving him his first assist of the season. Feilhaber has accounted for a goal in each of his three starts this season, and he will head into next week's clash versus San Jose with some momentum.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Feilhaber scored on just one shot in a 2-0 win against the Red Bulls on Saturday.

Feilhaber, who made his 2016 debut last week, now has two goals in his first two games. As long as he's fit and on the field, Feilhaber will remain of the more reliable players in the league and will hope to pass his totals of 10 goals and 11 assists last season. Feilhaber should be expected to have an impact again when SKC faces Colorado on Wednesday.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Feilhaber converted a stoppage time penalty, his only shot of the game, and was shown a yellow card in Saturday's 1-2 loss to Salt Lake.

SKC was excited for Feilhaber to make his 2016 debut and although it wasn't a vintage performance from him, he played the full 90 minutes and did successfully convert a penalty late in the game. Feilhaber will likely remain one of the key players for SKC this season, and the fact that he played the full 90 minutes bodes well for his value against the Red Bulls on Saturday.

Feilhaber will see his first action of the season on Saturday as Sporting Kansas City host Real Salt Lake.

Feilhaber likely had this rivalry match circled on his calendar for some time. SKC will be thrilled to get back last year's MVP candidate.

Feilhaber (abdomen) practiced fully Friday and is expected to return April 2 against Real Salt Lake, according to Sam McDowell of the KC Star.

Feilhaber has yet to play this season due to his injury, though he's got a bit of a benefit in his recovery because of SKC's break due to international play. He has tremendous fantasy upside when he's fit, though it may take him some time to get his match fitness back.

Feilhaber (abdomen) is out Sunday against Toronto FC.

Feilhaber wasn't fully expected to return, though it's tough that he can't even make the bench yet. His next opportunity to play will come April 2 against RSL.

Feilhaber (abdomen) did not participate in practice Tuesday, Sam McDowell of the Kansas City Star reports.

It is still unclear when Feilhaber, who missed the opener Sunday, will see the field for the first time this season. However, he could come back sooner rather than later since he is listed as day-to-day.

Feilhaber's abdomen injury is not considered serious, but he does not have a firm return date, manager Peter Vermes said after Sunday's match against the Sounders. "They're minor," Vermes said regarding injuries to Feilhaber, Brad Davis and Seth Sinovic. "But they're the ones that can become long-term if you don't give them the time that they need to get better, and the time is not four weeks. If you push them they could become four to six weeks, and that's what we don't want to do. So we want to make sure those guys are healthy, ready to go and fit. So until they're ready there's nothing else to really have a discussion about."

Connor Hallisey started in place of Feilhaber, finishing with two shots (one on goal) and four crosses, and he'll likely keep that spot until Feilhaber returns to match fitness.
