MLS Fantasy 2018: Gameweek 10 - Fantasy Forecast

May 4, 2018

 

Ahead of each Gameweek in MLS Fantasy the Hype Train provides its informative Fantasy Forecast, where the three members of the Hype Team will duel for MLS supremacy in predicting scores, as well as going head to head in picking a Scout Picks squad for the relevant Gameweek. In addition, we give our insight into who are the players to watch and those to drop, as well as providing insight into captaincy picks, differential players for the week, and more. Welcome to the Forecast. All aboard.

 

 

MLS Fantasy: Gameweek Deadline

For the 2018 MLS Fantasy season there is a 'Rolling Lockout', which means you can make substitutions and transfers until the second a player's game kicks off, which means you can chop and change your lineup as any Gameweek progresses.

 

You can view the schedule and a real time Gameweek deadline countdown clock (in the London GMT timezone) on our dedicated MLS Fantasy page.

 

 

How does our Forecasting work?

The Hype Team will compete in a weekly head to head dual of wits. The 3 members of the team will provide weekly insight for the Gameweek ahead, providing score predictions, a Scout Picks squad that follows MLS Fantasy rules, and will provide what insight they can for the fixtures at hand.

  • MLS Fixture Prediction: As pundits, we are testing our football acumen with MLS predictions and will be providing regular updated tables and stats in each edition of the MLS Forecast. A perfect score is worth 3 points whilst a correct result is worth 1 point. An incorrect score is worth nothing.

  • Blank Box: We've left an open space for the team to write that helps with the Gameweek hustle; identifying captaincy picks, transfers, attacking options, clean sheet potential, teams to look our for and avoid, differential players, as well as general analysis and comments.

  • Scout Picks: Picking a squad of 15 for a single Gameweek, without any budget, using the rules of MLS Fantasy - formations, captains and vice captains, and the player limits of 3 per club, and each team must pick a Captain.

 

 

MLS Fantasy - Fixture Prediction: 2018 Points Table

In our predictions a perfect score is 3 points, and predicting the right outcome is worth 1 point (aka if a team wins but, you predict it, but don't get the perfect score). Below is the Gameweek and overall rundown of our MLS predictions for the season.

Blank Box: Gameweek 10

 

Auto-rotation picks:

Toronto’s Auro could slot on the bench and so could most of Seattle’s defence. Leerdam is only $4.1m so could fill the void. Left-back Tolo was superb against LAFC so would be our top pick from Seattle if this was the case. D.C. United are the team without a game this week, so make sure to stack up on their players should your bench players come good.

 

Darks horses:

Toronto, Minnesota, New England, LA Galaxy (form for the Galaxy has been poor as of late and we don’t think many will back them against Houston but can come good on the road).

 

Must have picks:

Almiron, Lodeiro, Zusi, Russell

 

Differential pick:

Quintero looks a real player and could star for Minnesota again.

 

Captaincy:

Heart say Almiron, but I will probably stick the armband on Lodeiro (a force of habit in home fixtures)
