MLS Fantasy: Player rankings to help you decide who starts and who sits

The transfer deadline for Round 19 of MLS Fantasy Soccer: Manager is almost upon us (Wednesday, July 3 at 6:45 pm ET) and the Round 20 deadline is just a few days away (Saturday, July 6 at 7:15 pm ET).

With the July 4 holiday, this could prove a difficult week for fantasy owners since many will be in transit. Remember to use the MLS Fantasy mobile site if you're on the go at m.fantasy.mlssoccer.com.

In the meantime, if you're still trying to make some decisions heading into Round 19, below are my individual player rankings which should help those who are still on the fence at some positions. And remember to tune in to MLS Live on your notebook, tablet or mobile phone to follow all the action. Good luck managers!
