Union, MLS

A pretty solid MLS game-week 14 for me! 80 points for a week rank of 396, which moved me up 93 places to make my overall rank 903. It was a difficult week for almost everyone, so I’m pretty happy with my score and progress this week, even if I still had some misses. Let’s check out what went right and what went wrong in GW14.

What Went Right

I said going into MLS GW14 that clean sheets were going to be near impossible to find, and then I went and got a clean sheet from each of my defenders – Kai Wagner (7), Bird Risa (7), and Andrew Privett (8). Evander’s 11, Ryan Guald’s 12, and Riqui Puig’s 13 were all really solid picks as well, though I did put the armband on the one that scored the least of those 3 (Evander).

What Went Wrong

Almost everyone else didn’t really work out like I had hoped. Alex Bono got a 3 in the early game so I decided to run John McCarthy as my keeperoo, but he also got a 3. Lucho Acosta also got a 3 which was disappointing as it was his lowest score of the season, but I had thought about captaining him so I’m feeling a bit thankful for that. None of my forwards hit, 0 for 3 in MLS last week.

Denis Bouanga had just 2 points in the early slot, and I decided to run Jonathan Rodriguez as Hans Wolf only scored 4 points on my bench, but Rodriguez only scored 3 points. And my biggest miss of the week? Benteke’s 0 points in a full 90 minutes played. Yikes.

MLS Housekeeping

if you didn’t know, it’s another big MLS double-game week. Not every team is doubling, and not every team plays. Columbus is on a buy, so target them for your Autoroos, Switcheroos, and Keeperoos.

FC Cincinnati, New England Revolution, NYCFC, San Jose Earthquakes, Seattle Sounders, and St Louis City SC are the teams playing only 1 game in GW15. Inter Miami, LAFC, New York Red Bulls, and Philadelphia Union are the only teams playing double-home MLS games in GW15.
