The 2014 World Cup has almost wrapped up Group Play, and as we approach the Knockout Stage, many fantasy fans will be looking for a fresh set of rankings. To help you pick your squad, here are the top-five fantasy soccer midfielders for the Knockout Stage of the 2014 World Cup.
Hazard has been the offensive charge for Belgium this year in the World Cup. He assisted on two goals through the first two games of Group Play and will be a major contributor in each game Belgium is on the pitch.
The Netherlands are scoring goals at will right now, and it all starts with Sneijder. He is the leader of this offensive attack and will see plenty of touches in the next round. As long as the Dutch are scoring goals, Sneijder will keep filling the box score.
As expected, Neymar is red-hot right now and is drawing a ton of attention from opposing defenses. It is only a matter of time until the other Brazilian sharpshooters get some space to hit shots. Oscar will be much more involved in the Knockout Stage and the midfielder will rack up assists.
Through the three Group Play games, Toure has been completely held out of the box score. However, Toure was been constantly peppering the ball on net. The midfielder has shot the ball nine times (six on goal) and has still been active despite the lack of points. Look for him to breakthrough his slump in a big way in the next round.
Germany may not have officially made it to the next round, but it seems all but guaranteed considering their goal lead in the Group. Despite all the attention, Muller has actually lived up to the hype this year by recording a hat trick in the first game of Group Play. The 24-year-old has matured as the leader of this Germany attack and the youngster will continue to put balls in the back of the net.
