MLS Fantasy Advice: Rookie magic, golazos, injuries & more – did you cash in on Week 23?

Transfer Deadline: Wednesday, 9 pm ET

After a low-scoring round in MLS Fantasy last week, the top score jumped 30 points in Round 23. Rookies came up huge and big-name players produced as well. It was a good week for several fantasy owners, although some did suffer a little due to various reasons.

A few key players were - or are - battling injuries so be sure to monitor their status as we approach a big double-game-week with LA, Seattle and San Jose all positioned to play multiple games this week.

Drew Moor left Sunday night's game vs. D.C. United with a right knee injury. Javier Morales didn't play due to a hip injury sustained last weekend and Pedro Morales was rested vs Chivas USA, although he did make an appearance later on in the second half.

Here's the recap for Round 23, along with the top transfers in and out so far this week:
