Reminder: The transfers deadline locks 6:45 pm ET on Wednesday, so be sure to make all your moves before then. As usual, you'll be able to substitute players up until their scheduled game time.

For the second week in a row, fantasy owners will be able to benefit from teams playing multiple games within the same round. This week, it's Houston and New York who will benefit.
For those who invested in Kofi Sarkodie prior to his red card against Philadelphia on Saturday, be aware that the Houston right back will be available to play in at least one of the games in Round 8. Is it worth it to take a minus-four-point hit to bring in another defender? Maybe. Better choose wisely though.
As I mentioned last week, DGWs are critical to success in MLS Fantasy. In Round 9 there is no DGW, but from Rounds 10-14, there are 21 opportunities to capitalize on this feature.
TEAM-BY-TEAM BREAKDOWN (Rounds 10-14)
- Three - Houston
- Two - Colorado, Columbus, Dallas, Sporting KC
- One - Chicago, Chivas, D.C., LA, New York, Philadelphia, Portland, Real Salt Lake, San Jose, Seattle
Top Transfers (IN)
Lloyd Sam has pretty much peaked in price already, but you still have the chance to make money on all the other guys. Make your transfers today and build that team value.

Top Transfers (OUT)
It's starting to seem like a growing trend at this point. As seen with the top four transfers out this week, instead of using your two free transfers on players you'd like to swap out, you have to use them on players who are either injured, suspended or on a bye.
With DGWs starting to occur more and more each round, who you transfer in and out will involve much more strategy.
