Benny Feilhaber was the top Fantasy Player last week when he earned 13 points for all the managers who had him on their team. I was not one of them but hopefully some of you had him on your team. The last several rounds have not been as kind to our league's top 10 compared to the first few rounds but overall our league is still a strong league.
I have added section at the end entitled Fantasy Help. Check it out if you want.
- With CCL matches causing the postponement of two MLS regular season matches an extra transfer has been given to all players

A good source of information comes from Ben Jata, the MLS Fantasy Editor, and his article this week posted a lot of the stats that I will be posting below. Another good read is from our own Portlandpete in the fanposts and can help those who are also new to the Fantasy League. Finally there is a good article on MLS concerning choosing a captain that is a good read.
