It looks like we haven’t had enough MLS games lately, so again it’s easier to list the teams that play once i.e.: Chicago, New England, LAFC, Austin, Montreal, Portland, Houston, Vancouver. Everyone plays twice. Andre Blake (PHI, $ 9.5) looks great in goals @ Toronto and against Cincinnati, and Walker Zimmerman (NSH, $ 10.1) is a great option on defense @ Cincinnati and @ Orlando. In midfield, Jamiro Monteiro (PHI, $ 9.5) is your man, and up front it’s Valentin Castellanos (NYC, $ 10.8) against Chicago and @ Miami.
