In MLS Fantasy Soccer: Manager it’s important to know which players are taking corners, set-pieces and especially, penalty kicks. This will help maximize your potential to accumulate points. The likelihood of Brad Davis getting points in a game increases with every set-piece or corner kick he takes, but if he's first in line to take PKs as well, his ceiling is that much higher than the midfielders who don't. If you're having trouble deciding which player to start, the table below should help you out with some of the most likely players to take each kick.

Keep in mind that the No. 1 option might not be on the pitch at all times, and of course teams switch things up from time to time. Also bear in mind that for free kicks, there's a difference between who'll be taking direct kicks vs. who'd be expected to provide service on an indirect kick.
