Jeremy got us started with the note that Real Salt Lake and the Montreal Impact are two-gamers this week. With Montreal having a few players doing well in the early going (Davy Arnaud, Justin Mapp, and Sanna Nyassi) despite Montreal's lack of success on the scoreboard there are options aplenty from the two teams.
I won't spend too much time rehashing the other choices from those two teams but if you're thinking ahead beyond this week (and maybe already have some RSL players in your line-up), here are some thoughts on how to be looking at some strategic moves either this week or next:
- Not selling them now - remember you have limited transfers (either by week or by "game segment" depending on which site you use). Be careful selling guys from the above three teams because there is every chance that you'll want them again soon. This is a great time to use your bench. If you need to sell some players then look to Houston (bye week this week followed by @Chicago).
- Starting to buy now - This applies more to DC United and Sporting KC since Vancouver is on a bye next week but starting to acquire guys like DeRo (if his first 3 weeks got you nervous enough to sell), Salihi (he was knocking on the door last weekend and looked much better), or just about anyone on Sporting KC (but especially Nielsen, Zusi, Sapong, and Besler).
