Predicted goals allowed:
Team of the week:
Franklin, Williams, John, Freeman
Davis, Jewsbury, Donovan, Rogers
Subs: Ricketts, Borchers, Beckerman, Mendoza
Davis – Davis is second in the league in assists this season. Houston are predicted to score over three goals combined in their two games away at a suddenly leaky Columbus and home against San Jose.
Jewsbury – Portland hosts a New England side who have been looking a lot better of late. But so have Portland, and Jewsbury’s set pieces and PK duty always give him the chance to score fantasy points.
Espindola – With Saborio suddenly looking interested again, it makes Espindola a better fantasy option. I simply couldn’t list Saborio in my team of the weak after his play-acting last week, but he would be a fine pick too.
Montero – Montero certainly hasn’t had the season that many expected of him after his highly productive first two seasons in MLS. For some reason, I am predicting Montero to bag a goal this week instead of just pull the strings linking up with Fernandez and Rosales.
Franklin – Franklin has been playing out of position the last couple games. He has performed decently well as an outside midfielder and has the bonus of potential clean sheet points. Franklin didn’t even travel to Morelia, so expect him to start against Vancouver.
