MLS Fantasy Advice: Who are you giving the all-important captain's armband to in Round 22?

TRANSFER DEADLINE: Friday, 10:30 pm ET

Things haven't changed much since early this week. MLS Fantasy managers are stockpiling LA Galaxy players like canned goods before a hurricane.

Landon Donovan didn't make the top five (show some respect, people), but he sits just outside the group at No. 6. Four Galaxy players in the top six is pretty significant, especially since no team has a double-game week in Round 22.

Th Galaxy have a couple DGWs coming up in Rounds 24, 25 and 27, so it's probably time to join the crush for LD, Keano, Gyasi or whoever else tickles your fancy in the next couple weeks.

Last week Bradley Wright-Phillips was the most-captained player in MLS Fantasy. This week, there isn't a clear-cut consensus of who it'll be, but looking at the top transfers can help you get a better idea of what to expect.

Is it best to give the captain's armband to a LA Galaxy player? Or is there another player – a sleeper pick that nobody else is hip to maybe – that could explode for big points this week?
