MLS Fantasy: Who are the top transfers IN for the Conference Semifinals 2nd legs?
Transfer deadline for the Conference Semifinals second legs is Wednesday at 7:45 pm ET!
There's not much time left before the New York Red Bulls and Houston Dynamo battle it out in the second leg of the MLS Cup Playoffs Conference Semifinals (8 pm ET, Univision Dep., MLS LIVE, RDS2, CSN Houston, MSG) and the window to adjust your fantasy team closes.
A couple things to think about before we look at the top transfers this round:
- You have 4 free transfers in the 2nd leg of the Conference Semifinals
- If you don't use all your transfers, only one will roll over to the next round

|Conference Champ. - 2nd Leg||Nov. 23, 3:30 pm ET||4|
|MLS Cup final||Dec. 7, 4 pm ET||6|
There's a quick turnaround between the Conference Semifinals second leg matches and the Conference Championship first-leg matches, so be sure to login and set your team up for the next round before the deadline.

Top 20 Transfers IN (Conf. SF leg 2)
It should be no surprise that Tim Cahill is the most-added player so far this round. He proved to be a vital pickup in the first leg, co-leading all midifelders with nine points, and now he travels back to New York to play in front of his home crowd. One player you won't see on this list is his teammate, Jamison Olave, who will miss the game after receiving a red card in the first leg.
Do you think Olave deserves a suspension for his tackle on Omar Cummings? See what MLSsocccer.com's Simon Borg thinks.
Landon Donovan just squeaks in at the final spot (No. 20). Does this mean fantasy owners aren't predicting big things from him at Rio Tinto Stadium? I hope not. Donovan is a solid play no matter where the game is located.
