What is MLS Fantasy Soccer: Manager?
MLS Fantasy Soccer: Manager is a traditional salary cap game. In a nut shell, you've got $100 million to spend on players. You can pick any player in MLS to be on your team.
There are lots of decisions to make, of course. Should you play a 4-4-2 or a 4-3-3? Should you go for several high-priced stars and fill in the rest of the roster with low-priced player who might not get a lot of points? Or should you take a more balanced approach? These are just a few of the strategy questions you'll need to answer.
