MLS Fantasy 2019: Week 4 Fantasy Forecast

March 22, 2019

| The Hype Train |

 

Ahead of each Week in MLS Fantasy the Hype Train provides its informative Fantasy Forecast, where 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 round of games. 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: Week 4 Deadline

For the 2019 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 Week progresses.

 

 

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 Week, within their budget limitations, using the rules of MLS Fantasy - formations, the player limits of 3 players-per-club, and each team must pick a captain.

MLS Fantasy: Week 4 Insight

 

The obvious picks:

LAFC

Dallas

New York Red Bulls

 

The differentials:

The other two remaining home sides – New England and Philadelphia – have advantageous fixtures this week due to international call-ups and due to Cincinnati being an expansion side on the road.

 

First names on my team sheet this week:

Ziegler (penalties), Vela (form), Zimmerman (bonus points), Gil (popular)

 

Captaincy picks:

(C) – Vela

(VC) – Gil

(VVC) – BWP

(VVVC) - Ziegler

 

Other comments:

I don’t think there will be a lot of gains this week from players due to the 5-game format, so the best advice is to just follow the trends of player price rises and captaincy picks to keep you ticking over until you are able to experiment with your team more effectively.
