Minnesota plays twice this round, and everyone else plays once. I’m holding my breath and taking Bill Hamid in goal @ Cincinnati. In defense I like Auston Trusty (COL, $8.8) @ Austin, and in midfield it’s Jamiro Monteiro (PHI, $9.7) vs. Chicago. At forward, I feel good about Raul Ruidiaz (SEA, $9.3) getting back amongst the goals vs. San Jose.
