Are injuries and World Cup qualifiers hurting your fantasy team? Ask the experts

By Ben Jata

Due to CONCACAF Champions League semifinal second-leg games against Monterrey and Santos Laguna, Round 6 fixtures in Fantasy Soccer: Manager for both the Seattle Sounders and LA Galaxy have been rescheduled. With that in mind, we've added an extra transfer (three total) to that round to accommodate your potential losses. One additional transfer will carry over to Round 6 (for a total of four) if you don't use them all up this week.

Injuries are starting to become a growing concern (i.e. Chance Meyers in Sporting KC) and USMNT absences could mean less playing time when some starters return to their team (e.g. Graham Zusi, Omar Gonzalez, Eddie Johnson, etc.). With that being said, MLS Experts Jason Saghini and Andrew Wiebe will be back again on Thursday for another episode of “Starting Lineup." This new MLS Fantasy Soccer: Manager series is specifically designed to help you field your Best XI possible. If you're having trouble figuring out who to start, who to pick up, who to drop or just a general question about the game let us know. We're here to talk fantasy soccer, that's it!

Post your questions in the comments section or tweet them to @MLSFantasy, the offical MLS twitter account for FS:M. And if for some reason you missed the most recent episode of Starting Lineup last week, check it out below.
