MLS Fantasy 2019: Week 12 Fantasy Forecast

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 12 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 12 Insight

9 teams have a Double Gameweek:


D.C. United

Houston Dynamo

Vancouver Whitecaps

Atlanta United

Seattle Sounders

Orlando City


FC Dallas

Teams to bank on:

Toronto, Houston, Seattle and LAFC

Teams to avoid:

Dallas, Orlando and D.C. United

Teams that could either way this week:

Vancouver Whitecaps are the only team this week that in my estimation might surprise us with performances against Atlanta and Sporting KC. Just a hunch more than anything based on their performance against Portland in a recent 1-0 win. For this season, Fredy Montero is on standby with my team.

Autoroo Selections:

Of my picks below, Adnan and Lundkvist will be there. I might put Adnan out for Kee-hee at the last minute. My midfield looks set, as well as my Forward line, so you'll unlikely see many changes to this and my actual final team.

Captaincy Picks:

I'm pretty locked in to picking Vela this week, though my captaincy article below touches on the alternatives.
