REMINDER: All transfers need to be finalized by Saturday at 5:45 pm ET.


Prepare to earn your MLS Fantasy: Manager victories over the next few weeks.

That's because several MLS players will be out of action due to international duty and 14 teams will have a bye between Rounds 15 and 16, including the New York Red Bulls and Sporting KC who will be off for both weekends.

So pay close attention to the MLS schedule over the next few weeks and try to avoid stocking up on players with byes in upcoming rounds.

Before we get into our poll question of the week, I want to address a couple stat corrections that could have potentially affected your score and/or your opponent's score in Round 12.

STAT CORRECTIONS: The league overturned two own goals that were awarded in Round 12. These changes (updated on May 25) may have impacted your overall ranking as well as the outcome of any head-to-head league matches. The stat corrections for each player are listed below:

1. Ricardo Clark's own goal switched to Juan Agudelo goal (HOU-NE, May 18)

Ricardo Clark (HOU)

  • Original score: 1 point
  • Updated Score: 3 points

Juan Agudelo (NE)

  • Original Score: 1 point
  • Updated Score: 6 points

2. Ethan White's own goal switched to Ike Opara goal (DC-SKC, May 19)

Ethan White (DCU)

  • Original Score: 3 points
  • Updated Score: 5 points

Ike Opara (SKC)

  • Original Score: 3 points
  • Updated Score: 9 points

Graham Zusi (SKC)

  • Original Score: 7 points
  • Updated Score: 10 points

Agudelo's goal was unassisted, but since Opara's goal came from a corner kick taken by Graham Zusi, the most-popular player in FS:M jumped three points. And if you captained him, he jumped from 14 to 20. This update affected everyone who owned Zusi, so if you haven't gone back and checked your score from Round 12, do it now!

Poll Question of the Week: After Round 14 ends, there will be 22 more weeks left of fantasy soccer before the playoffs start. So with a tough stretch of games coming up, does it make sense to use the Wildcard now? Have you used it already? Or maybe you forgot you still had it.

Whatever the case may be, we want to hear where you stand on the Wildcard. Vote in the poll to the right and leave your comments below. The results will be shared on next week's episode of Starting Lineup.
