Fantasy MLR: Round 2 Waiver Wire Suggestions

After an exciting first weekend in MLR, there are some key fantasy takeaways to discuss.

First, scoring is up across the league, and that is awesome!

And the explanation behind that is the inclusion of more stats, such as earning points for tackles and meters gained.

As a result, we saw more diversified scoring across the league. Again, it's only one round, but back three players dominated the top ten in scoring this weekend.

Still, there was a flurry of waiver wire moves in Round 1 as fantasy managers reacted to the release of each MLR club's match day 23.

One thing to note: the Chicago Hounds and Old Glory DC are off this weekend with early-season byes.

As we check in on the best available at each position, it's interesting to note that many of the top available players are with Chicago and D.C. So it'll be fun to track how managers navigate this bye week.

So, who should managers target in the waiver wire process this week?

Let's dive into the top scorer from each position and then list the top available players.
