Roster change deadline: Wednesday October 7, 7:30pm ET
Amount of Free Transfers this week: UNLIMITED
The New York Red Bulls still control first place in the Shield race and could take a huge step forward by beating the Montreal Impact on Wednesday night. The LA Galaxy drew with the Seattle Sounders to open the door a bit for RBNY. No one said it won't be difficult though. They will have to go into Montreal and deal with Didier Drogba while Matt Miazga is on international duty.
You have unlimited transfers this week. Make these guys your four RBNY players in the lineup: Dax McCarty, Felipe Martins, Sacha Kljestan and Bradley Wright-Phillips. Besides Damien Perrinelle and Luis Robles, everyone else has the potential to be in the bench to start the game. I'd shy away from grabbing defensive players since RBNY is not at full strength and as mentioned before, there is a man named Drogba. I personally wouldn't bet on a clean sheet. Which means in order to win, RBNY will need multiple goals.
Another piece of advice: grab on players on Montreal, RBNY, Colorado, Vancouver and Dallas. You have unlimited transfers next week too, so there is no excuse to have a starter on bye.
