11. DC United

I was really confident DC would make the playoffs at one point this offseason, but a lack of depth and potential regression in Hernan Losada's high intensity system could be devastating. Julian Gressel is fantastic and will have a massive season, but do they have the horses to compete for a playoff spot? I doubt it.
