Fantasy MLS: Top Picks for Round 14

Robbie and the Galaxy are definitely keen to have Donovan back - Troy Taormina-USA TODAY Sports

This is the last Fantasy MLS week until TWO unlimited transfer rounds, and Dynamo Theory breaks down the top prospects for the double-game week.

For the second week in a row, I had a great captain pick -- this time, it was Fabian Espindola. He's no Robbie Keane, but he at least kept me on the front page of the overall leaderboard. As soon as the shocking news of Landon Donovan's release back to LA Galaxy was released, I had a feeling everyone that didn't bank on Keane was doomed to drop a few spots in the rankings this weekend.

Round 14: Go For Broke Before the Unlimited Transfer Window

Round 15 is an unlimited transfer week, due to the fact that there are only two matches scheduled: MTL v DC and POR v DAL. With that in mind, transfers for Round 14 only need to take into account this week's match-ups. No planning two or three weeks out is needed, so take a look at these guys, and see which ones work with your lineup and budget:

Goalkeepers:
Clint Irwin (COL, $4.9): Irwin's averaging around five points per game, and is the best value DGW option for Round 14.
Steve Clark (CLB, $5.0): Clark has picked up 29 points in the last six matches, despite the Crew only having one clean sheet in that time frame.
Jeff Attinella (RSL, $5.0): Nick Rimando's replacement is no slouch, and has picked up a total of 13 points in his last two matches for Real Salt Lake.

Defenders:
Drew Moor (COL, $7.6): Moor's scored 64 points in his 11 appearances. Only concern is that he only played one of the two games when the Rapids had a DGW in Round 10.
Chris Klute (COL, $7.4): Klute has made an appearance in all of the last seven matches for Colorado, playing 90 in six of them.
Michael Parkhurst (CLB, $7.4): Should be available for the Crew, but Columbus has two tough matches in Round 14.
Matt Borchers (RSL, $8.8): Expensive, but worth it.
Dan Gargan (LA, $6.3): If you still have Gargan, he may be worth a look against Chivas USA.

Midfielders:
Dillon Powers (COL, $7.4): Powers is back at 60+ minutes, and put the beat-down on Montreal last week, earning 14 points.
Jeff Larentowicz (CHI, $7.2): Scoring for the Fire midfielder has been very consistent. If he gets an assist: 6 points. No assist: 3 points.
Hector Jimenez (CLB, $5.7): Budget option worth taking a look at for the DGW.
Javier Morales (RSL, $11.2): Non-budget option, but he's scored 41 points in three matches, AND has a double-game week. Bling bling.
Luke Mulholland (RSL, $6.4): Budget RSL midfield option
Landon Donovan (LA, $10.7): USMNT's loss is FMLS and MLS's gain.

Forwards:
Harrison Shipp (CHI, $6.4): Showed a flash of brilliance against the New York Red Bulls, but aside from that, has been mediocre. Will he go off again?
Quincy Amerikwa (CHI, $6.3): It's #QuincyTime. Need I say more?
Devon Sandoval (RSL, $6.8): With Alvoro Saborio out on international duties, and Joao Plata potentially injured, Inigo Montoya Sandoval may be a sneaky budget play if he's healthy.
Robbie Keane (LA, $11.0): Landycakes + Robbie Keane + playing against Chivas = POINTS
Federico Higuain (CLB, $10.5): Pipa will be fresh off his suspension. He scored 10 and 15 points in his two previous matches, AND he has a double-game week.

Best of luck to everyone, and remember to pick a different captain than me!
