So with the Dynamo having two weeks off from MLS play, I decided to take two weeks off from providing fantasy advice. Hopefully your team didn't suffer too much!

This weekend, the Dynamo travel to Chicago for an Eastern Conference tilt with the Fire. Historically, the Dynamo have done well at Toyota Park, coming away with a 3-1-2 record and 10 goals scored in six matches.

When you begin to carve out a career for yourself in MLS, versatility is a key factor which helps to set you apart from the rest. Houston’s Nathan Sturgis could show just how big an asset that is this weekend, as the club could be without three of its starting midfielders due to injury and suspension.

While the Houston Dynamo prepare for their first Eastern Conference showdown of the year on Sunday against the Chicago Fire, forward Calen Carr is preparing for a bit of a homecoming.

The speedy forward was traded to Houston from Chicago in March of 2011 after spending five years in red. A year has passed and much has changed for the 6-foot tall Carr, who played an important role with the Dynamo during the run to MLS Cup.

If any team knows how influential it can be to host an MLS Cup final, it's the Houston Dynamo.

After all, the club played what amounted to an away game at The Home Depot Center last November when it lost to the LA Galaxy 1-0 in the season’s deciding game. But a change in MLS rules will now grant that advantage to the team with the best record.

There is only so much I can say about the Dynamo's place in the power rankings after consecutive bye weeks. So let's get down to it. With the sudden surge of Thierry Henry and the New York Red Bulls, and results pending from a Brad Davis MRI, the folks at MLSsoccer.com dropped the Dynamo to the No. 6 spot in their rankings. They said:

Add injury concerns to the problems already facing the Houston Dynamo midfield.

Stalwart Brad Davis missed Monday’s training session with the Dynamo to undergo an MRI on his calf muscle, according to head coach Dominic Kinnear. The left midfielder sustained the injury during this past Saturday’s training session.

“He hurt his calf a little bit so we’ll have to see about his availability for Sunday [vs. Chicago],” Kinnear told the media after Monday’s training session.
