Buy 'Em or Bag 'Em Week 25: Well Deserved Rest

A stretch of big games coming up. But let's first take a deep breath.

Roster change deadline: Wednesday August 19, 7:30pm ET

Amount of Free Transfers this week: 2

After a stretch of six straight games without a loss (and only losing once since June 20th), the New York Red Bulls will have a bye week.  They'll have 11 days of rest before taking on the Chicago Fire on August 26th.   RBNY has been playing very well the last few weeks and have their eyes set on D.C. United, who are only five points up while RBNY have three games in hand.  They could be making a push for the Supporter's Shield, but one step at a time.

This week was supposed to be reserved for RBNY vs New England, but an AC/DC concert got in the way of that.

Usually my advice would be to bag all of your RBNY players during the bye week.  But let's not get very carried away.  My recommendation will be to put them on the bench.  They have a double in Week 26, so you'll want to keep the players close by to take advantage.  RBNY have Chicago on August 26th, then ends the week with their last game of the season against DCU on August 30th.

Buy 'Em

  • Players on Columbus, NYCFC (if you have to), San Jose and Sporting KC

Bag 'Em

  • RBNY (bench them)
  • Players on New England
