The new year brings some new wrinkles in the MLS Fantasy game, but before we get to any of that, here is the link to sign up your squad: Here, RIGHT HERE.
(You shouldn't need the league code, but just in case here it is: 11235-1923.)
So, the big changes to this year's game first.
- You start with $120 million, up from $100m.
- However, you have to spread that across 18 players now, instead of 15 (2 goalkeepers, 6 defenders, 6 midfielders, and 4 forwards).
- No more automatic substitutions. (!)
Finally, here are some additional modifications for the 2014 season.
- No Vice-Captain anymore, only Captains.
- Defenders cost a lot more this year. No more grabbing solid defenders at a relative discount compared to middies and forwards.
- Fantasy ends after the regular season.
- Four players max from each team.
- No penalty will apply to
Will Bruinplayers who miss a big chance.
- You are issued 1 wildcard at the start of the season.
- Two points for earning a penalty.
- One point for causing an opponent's own goal.
Good luck! Rosters lock down March 8 at 2:45 PM ET, so get to it! See you all on the fantasy pitch.
