Just like MLS teams, Kentucky Football Club has gone through some changes during the offseason. I’m now excited to be able to say that we have officially moved to a new home. You can find all of our new posts at MLSFantasyBoss.com.

The site looks better, our name makes more sense, we have a new Twitter account, and I’ve even launch a new feature that  hope everyone will enjoy (Live Chat).

I also want to thank everyone who has visited our site in the past and all of the members of the /r/FantasyMLS subreddit. You are a great community to be a part of and make this a fun hobby to have.

KFC’s Fantasy MLS Defender picks – Week 7

Defenders

If you got some great points from your defensive line this week, take a moment to thank Kansas City. If you did not have a great week, it’s understandable. Not many clean sheets and 2 of the 3 were unexpected. If you loaded up on SKC players though, it came with a price. They have a bye this week. Fortunately, everyone else is playing and there are some good options.

Big 3
Omar Gonzalez (DAL v LA), Jeff Parke (PHI vs TOR), and Josh Williams (MON vs CBL).

KFC MLS Fantasy Team – Week 6

I want to start with another reminder. Games start this evening at 8:30PM so I hope that this article is not too late for those of you who like to see the KFC team.  The transfer deadline is 8:15PM, so don’t forget to make your trades. And now, our fantasy MLS week 6 team.

KFC Team Week 6

Week 5 summary

Overall, we were very pleased with the result of our team. The biggest letdown was the LA game, and I’m sure many of you all agree. I’m not sure what happened but there was a clear breakdown and it lead to a goal for Toronto and a -8 point hit to out team. This is the rink that you run when you double up on defensive players, you just have to balance that risk with reward. Captain Zusi paid off big for us, and we were also very happy the performances from Davis and Earnshaw.

Week 6 Changes

Having 5 teams on a bye this week did make choices a little hard, but fortunately, we knew that was coming and were able to plan a bit for it (mostly by not grabbing too many Montreal players).  Fortunately, we had the extra trade that MLS Fantasy gave to everyone. This trade helped us to free up some extra cash and do a little prep for the double game week coming up.

Our first trade happened early, we dropped Kwame Watson and replaced him with Michel Garbini Pereira. I get a little nervous to have 2 Dallas defenders (especially after what happened to LA), but overall, we decided that Michael was clearly going to be gaining a lot of value this week and that the Toronto game had a good chance of going in Dallas’s favor. Hedges and Michael are also very good bonus point generators.

The 2nd and 3rd trade we made two goals. 1) Clear out our 1, underperforming, Montreal player, and 2) do a little prep for the double game week. To accomplish the second goal, we wanted to bring in a New York player. Buy grabbing a midfielder we would kill 2 birds with one stone. But first we needed some cash. There was an obvious choice Clint Irwin. We dropped Cudicini and replaced him with the cheapest starting keeper in the league. We still believe his value is going to go up and with Hamid being out starting Keeper for the next few games, it was an easy choice.

With the extra money, we dropped Davy Arnaud and replaced him with Dax McCarty. This gives us New York coverage from a player who is neither in poor form or injured. We think other people will notice this and that Dax’s value will rise as the week 8 double games gets closer.

Our bench is easy this week. Both of our Colorado players are on the bench and our two remaining LA players.

Captain

Again, not a hard choice, Zusi.

Week 7 Prep

The most important detail to note about week 7 is that Sporting Kansas City does not have a game. We’re happy that we only have to worry about Zusi for this week. We can easily replace him with one of our LA players and still field a full XI. The plan right now it to make one trade and save the other for getting a good team ready for week 8.

So that’s the KFC team for Week 6. What do you think? How did your team do? Want input on your team? Stop by r/FantasyMLS and post. There are many good members who can help out with questions.

KFC Official MLS League

Last night, during the Super Bowl, KFC kicked off it’s MLS league. Originally we were going to use ESPN, because we thought the MLS provided game was Facebook based. We realized we were wrong and got everything up and running.

If you would like to join our KFC league, and have a shot at winning a SWEET ASS TROPHY, end us an e-mail and we will send you the league code.

Fantasy MLS

Our New Home

Welcome to the new home of KFC fantasy soccer. We’ve had a few new ideas about how to get some more people involved in out league, and I thought that might require us getting a bit more powerful blog tool. So we’ve moved to WordPress.

If you are just finding this site, please remember that we are still getting things sorted out, for the 2013 MLS season. We are still running our BPL league, and information about that league can be found in the About page.

Thanks!
