Reid, Michael and Blayne get together to review the bits of fantasy information that can be taken from last week's round and help you prepare for the upcoming DGWs in Round 28.
Even with Round 27 being a short week, it still held a few fantasy lessons and that is the focus of the first part of the show, that and the surprising number of players who got involved in scoring. However, the big question is who will be available in Round 28 and Michael covers all the latest rumors about who will and will not be available for the midweek. The show ends with a review of the best player options for Round 28 and includes several discussion about which SGW players are actually viable this week.



Week 28 of MLS Fantasy marks the start of three big double-game weeks before rounding the 2019 regular season. With just four weeks to go, let’s take a look at the top players at each position to help your team gain some ground in the standings.

Sean Johnson controls a save for New York City FC | USA Today Images


Sean Johnson is the only goalkeeper with two home games this week, and he’s only allowed one goal over the last 180 minutes at Yankee Stadium. With a depleted defense in front of him for at least one game this week, the New York City FC be leaned on heavily to keep Toronto and San Jose off the board.

Anton Tinnerholm on the dribble | USA Today Images


Anton Tinnerholm has an assist in consecutive home appearances, and he’s topped seven points in each of his last four games at Yankee Stadium. With multiple DGW defenders still missing out through international duty, Tinnerholm is the most reliable NYCFC option to rack up points on both ends of the field.
