The scoreless draw between Portland and New England on Thursday left fantasy owners wanting more, and with three games kicking off simultaneously on Saturday afternoon, it didn't take long for them to get it.

Unfortunately for most, the goals and ejections weren't all that helpful. Thierry Henry, Federico Higuaín, Ryan Johnson and Jack McInerney were all fantasy duds, while the likes of Danny Cruz, Justin Mapp, Mauro Rosales and Luis Robles all shined. Luckily for some, there's still quite a few big name players set to play later today. Landon Donovan and Graham Zusi headline Sunday's crop ... need we say more?
