Predicted goals conceded
Team of the week:
Besler, Franklin, Soares, Segares
Zusi, Jewsbury, Donovan, DeRosario
Subs: Nielson, Ihemelu, Sanna Nyassi, Perlaza
Jewsbury – Portland host Vancouver in a Cascadia Derby match (on a related, but non-fantasy note: I’m excited to see what the TA tifo is) on top of a trip to Kansas City. As always, Jewsbury is the offensive pick from Portland.
Kamara – Kansas City host both Portland and DCU. You can’t ask for much better offensive fixtures than this in the same week. Of course there’s rotation risk in the Sporting frontline, but Kamara should get at least 120 minutes.
Zusi – See above. Add in the threat of set pieces and a bit less rotation risk, and you have some potential for points.
Donovan – I said it a few weeks ago, but Donovan has by far the highest points per game out of any player. A predicted goals scored of 2.5 for LA against rivals San Jose looks like a decent prospect for Donovan.
De Rosario – Two games for DeRo will provide him with ample opportunity to expand upon his last 2 fantastic gameweeks. He’s the second highest scoring player in terms of PPG, and should always be considered for the armband when DC has a favorable week.
