Round 11 had only two double game teams this round and for people betting on Toronto’s big players kinda got the rug pulled out from under them. (I was one of those people.) There were three teams that scored four goals (Philadelphia, New England, and Chicago) and none of them played twice! Justin Meram was the top player this week with 23 points, and if he was your captain you would have been in good shape.
BW League Standings after Week 11
In the classic league Blue Suede Sjoberg is still atop the standings. Picking eight players that played twice in Round 11, Eric scored had the highest score in the Classic League. Evergreen Front and Holy Shipp are tied with 856 points, hoping to close the gap on Blue Suede Sjoberg. Counting Cronins is just 10 points back from second place with 846. Only three fantasy managers scored in triple digits this week, but look for that to change in Round 12!
There were some blow outs this week: 102-54, 104-52, 112-66. The closest game was against myself and Drain the Marsch at 71-75 and if wasn’t for the switcharoos he would have kicked my butt. There are no longer any undefeated teams! Ball2Hand fell seven spots after his loss, moving draftKicks into the number one spot! The top six teams are all with one loss, but with the HUGE double game week in Round 12 we will probably see some shake-ups at the top of the table.
Biggest Value Picks
Justin Meram scored 23 points in Round 11, and though he didn’t play the full 180 minutes, he did score 3 goals against Montreal and he got four points from Toronto. At $10.1, Meram was pricey but worth the money.
Haris Medunjanin has been under the radar in recent weeks, but after beating up on DC, Medunjanin will probably be the most transferred player this week. Nineteen points from an $8.2 midfielder is huge, and going into a double game week, you can expect him to do well.
Sebastian Giovinco cost $12.5, and while he didn’t play against Toronto, he did score in Minnesota. Unfortunately, he left in the first half due to injury. Not worth the money.
Fanendo Adi only had two points in San Jose and three in Atlanta. He has hit a rough patch, and I don’t think this will continue but based on the match-ups, I would stay away from Portland this week.
I was going to write a big thing here, with it being a double game week for 10 teams, but earlier in the week I was a guest on MLS Fantasy Insider podcast so go give it a listen instead.

Some good advice on what to do going into round 12. If you don’t want to listen to it here is the gist of it: only pick double game week players and play anyone against RSL.
