Fantasy Free-kick: Week 2

Everyones excited about fantasy - Joe Nicholson-USA TODAY Sports

As the new guy around here it is my duty to keep the WTR readers up to date on this season's Smarter Than...insert coaches name here contest and this new feature, the MLS Fantasy column. This column can be whatever you, the readers, want it to be. Comment below or feel free to tweet me your suggestions @Stouffvillain.

Kudos to the Toronto Hammerheads who have come out the gate on fire this season. With 144 points through the first two weeks they are currently sitting on top of the WTR MLS Fantasy league. Will Bruin has been a star for the Hammerheads thus far but someone else will have to step up this week as Houston is the only team on a bye this week. The week 2 winner is Narly19 whose decision to not wait and see and instead go straight to the Jermain Defoe well paid off handsomely as his captain brought in 26 of his 73 points.

HE’S ON FIRE

This week’s hottest fantasy players adds are well known to TFC supporters. Jermain Defoe leads all players with 1,800+ adds this week. The only other player to crack 1,000 is the dancing Ecuadorian Joao Plata. Playing in a more fluid offense than the one he played in while in Toronto Plata has really found a home in Utah.

YOU’RE AS COLD AS ICE

These are the guys who are being kicked to the curb more than any others. Mike Magee has already dropped $0.2m this season and is leading the way this week in drops. In the preseason many were looking at Zach Loyd to be the steal of the season at $5.5m but after being beaten out for his position he then picked up a knock and now is right behind Mike Magee in drops. Lastly is Max Urruti has cracked 500+ drops. Failing to score in what is supposed to be a potent offense will do that.

VIEW FROM THE BUNKER

TFC host DC this week, who are coming off a bye, and looking to show their followers the egg they laid in Columbus in week one wasn’t what their front office concocted this offseason. Defoe, Osorio and Jackson look to be good starts this week. The TFC defence also looks like a solid play. Eddie Johnson can score at a moment’s notice but DC didn’t show much to fear in their opener.

Here's your current top ten in the WTR league, best of luck to your squad this week.
