In Round 4 of MLS Fantasy Manager, the high score jumped back up a bit to 81, but the overall average dropped even more: 38 points. There were 11 more goals than we saw in Round 3, but only one team recorded a clean sheet.
Jermain Defoe was the most-captained player for the second week in a row. Unfortunately, the high-priced attacker left the game just after the 60-minute mark with what looked to be a left hamstring injury. Stay tuned for more updates on his status later in the week. For now, he's questionable.
Here's the Monday recap along with some bonus-point studs and the top transfers both in and out.
