MLS Fantasy Advice: Captain Robbie Keane, bench Andrew Farrell & Dillon Powers – right move?


For the second straight week the most-captained player was New York Red Bulls striker Bradley Wright-Phillips.

In last week's captains' poll, the Golden Boot leader garnered 21.8 percent of the votes and Robbie Keane was right behind him with 21.6 percent of the votes. Unfortunately, those of you who sided with either of these two only netted four total points.

Rounding of the top five vote-getters were: Diego Valeri (17 percent), Clint Dempsey (14 percent) and Landon Donovan (12.3 percent).

Gyasi Zardes was selected just 4.5 percent of the time. Even the "Other" category did better than that (8.5 percent). Luckily for me, I went with Zardes.

LA have DGWs coming up in Rounds 24, 25 and 27 so it should be of no surprise to see Zardes, Keano, and Dan Gargan atop this list. Chris Wondolowski will also benefit from a DGW in Round 24, as will the entire Seattle Sounders roster. Where are they on this list?

Top 5 Transfers IN (Round 23)
