MLS Fantasy Advice: Montreal Impact flip the script, deliver big-time in Round 16

We're back and break-free from here on out!

Round 16 of MLS Fantasy was an incredible week for defenders with a season-high 10 teams logging clean sheets. The top score jumped up 21 points from last round (86 points to 107 points) and the average score rebounded as well.

After a lackluster performance against Vancouver in midweek, Jack McInerney and the Montreal defense picked it up in their second match of the week (3-0 win vs. Houston Dynamo) with the Canadian champions seeing four of their players tied for the highest score of the round (14 points).

You have just two transfers to help tweak your lineup for Round 17 so use them wisely. Here's the recap for Round 16 along with the top transfers in and out so far this week:
