Decision Day 2015 is upon us and, surprisingly, has nothing to do with politics or even Donald Trump. Sunday marks the final day of the MLS regular season and there is much still to be decided. Which team out of Portland, San Jose, Seattle, and Sporting KC will be left out of the playoffs? Will it be the Red Bulls or FC Dallas that lay claim to the Supporters’ Shield? Which teams grab the knockout round byes?

It’s the biggest DFS slate of the year for MLS with all 20 teams playing Sunday afternoon and evening. Personally, I won’t have a ton of skin in the game as I’ll actually be in attendance at Sporting Park watching Sporting KC take on the Galaxy though I’ll have to get some action this week. Because of the full slate, we’ll look at a variety of players to target without getting too in-depth. I’ll only be targeting players on teams that have something to play for as I don’t trust the already-eliminated teams to field normal starting lineups.

I was all set to write this big intro paragraph about whether or not we had to have the Atomic Ant, Sebastian Giovinco, in our lineups this week until I started my research and discovered Giovinco won’t be playing for Toronto on Wednesday night. He won’t be there because he’s with the ITALIAN NATIONAL TEAM helping the Azzuri qualify for Euro 2016. It can’t be overstated how crazy it is that an MLS player is good enough to be among the best 23 for one of the world’s soccer powers. He’s the kind of Designated Player (DP) that MLS needs to bring in more of instead of its obsession with the aging star Frank Lampard-types. As I write this, Giovinco just assisted on the equalizing goal for Italy against Norway. What a talent.

Here in the Twin Cities the leaves are changing color, the temperatures are dropping, everything is pumpkin-flavored, and that can only mean one thing: time to construct late-season MLS DFS lineups! OK so maybe most people wouldn’t make that same connection but here we are. Almost every MLS franchise has work yet to do in the last few weeks of the regular season whether it be running down the Supporters Shield or making a push to secure their playoff spot.

The two-game Wednesday MLS slate on a daily fantasy site that’s “fit for a king” features three teams in the hunt for the league’s best record and one, Impact de Montreal, that desperately need points to fend off Orlando City for the sixth and final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference.

Impact-ing (see what I did there?) these two games is MLS’ refusal to allow room for the international break resulting in many players being called up to their national teams which keeps teams at less than full strength. Look out for starting lineups as there will surely be some surprises.
