Buy 'Em or Bag 'Em Week 4: BWP, Lloyd Sam and Dax McCarty

Coming off a big win against DC, RBNY will have to play Columbus minus a few players

Jim O'Connor-USA TODAY Sports

Roster change deadline: Saturday March 28, 1:00pm ET

Amount of Free Transfers this week: 2

The New York Red Bulls experienced one of their most complete 90 minutes in recent history when they defeated rival D.C. United 2-0 on Sunday night. Their next challenge awaits on Saturday March 28th when they travel to the dangerous Columbus Crew SC. Red Bull will be without three defenders due to international duty (Jamaica: Kemar Lawrence; Canada: Karl Ouimette; Costa Rica: Roy Miller).

I recommend to Bag the international call ups; they aren't going to get you any points this week. Columbus is going to be missing three of their own: Wil Trapp, Waylon Francis and Justin Meram.

If you have the cash to spend, Buy Bradley Wright-Phillips (1 goal, 1 assist). He looks like he is starting to hit his stride as long as he gets the service he got in the DC game. Another big Buy is Lloyd Sam (2 goals). He is relatively inexpensive for the amount of points he has scored the last two games.  Lastly, Dax McCarty (1 assist) is only 2 fantasy points behind Sam... and is cheaper!  He has been doing the defensive dirty work.

On a personal note, I am using my wildcard.  I have a few injured guys, a few suspended guys and a few guys I thought were going to see more of the field.  I need to reshuffle and hope my team (and 2 transfers per week) can take me through the first Unlimited transfer slot during Week 15.
