Roster change deadline: Friday April 3, 7:00pm ET

Amount of Free Transfers this week: 2

This seems all familiar.  Play a game, have a bye week, play D.C. United.  That's how weeks 1 through 3 went, and that's how weeks 4 through 6 are going to go as well.  After beating the Columbus Crew SC 2-1, the New York Red Bulls will have another 13 day break before traveling to DC for Atlantic Cup part II on Saturday 4/11.

Now, I wouldn't sell all of your RB players, but you can put them on the bench.  If you are one of the lucky owners of Bradley Wright-Phillips (26 points), Lloyd Sam (20 points), Dax McCarty (18 points) or Luis Robles (17 points), sit them for Week 5.  You can Bag some other players to make space for ones that will earn points in Week 5.

The Red Bulls did a good job at going on the road and grabbing three points without their international players.  Everyone will get another break to recuperate.  Maybe this time, Ronald Zubar (5 points) will be healthy enough to face DC.  He has been unavailable since Week 1 versus Sporting Kansas City when he left with a hamstring strain.  Roy Miller, Kemar Lawrence, Karl Ouimette, Dane Richards, and Andrew Jean-Baptiste will all return from international duty.
