Most Starts

More stats heading into the 2016 season, this time it's the most starts.

In league play only one new player hit the 100 start mark, and that was Chance Myers who finished the season with 108 starts for KC. Heading into 2016 KC should have at least one if not more people joining the list. Benny Feilhaber is 18 starts away from 100 so he should be able to make it. Other players are close but may be unlikely, Paulo Nagamura sits on 74 currently, but I'm not sure that he'll have 26 starts for Kansas City in 2016 to reach the century mark. The other possibility is Dom Dwyer who sits on 66 currently. Dwyer would have to start all 34 games this season to reach the century mark. Certainly possible, but with the Champions League this year as well I don't see it happening for Dwyer. Eslewhere, Matt Besler should join the 200 start club, needing just 22 starts to get there. Graham Zusi should reach the 150 start mark in 2016 as well.

Here's the full list.

Kerry Zavagnin - 228
Nick Garcia - 224
Davy Arnaud - 213
Jimmy Conrad - 203
Preki - 199
Chris Klein - 183
Matt Besler - 177
Jack Jewsbury - 142
Mo Johnston - 142
Graham Zusi - 137

Jacob Peterson - 47
Kevin Ellis - 43
Krisztian Nemeth - 23
Tim Melia - 23
Ike Opara - 23
Soni Mustivar - 20
Amadou Dia - 13

Jimmy Medranda - 8
Connor Hallisey - 6
Erik Palmer-Brown - 6
Jon Kempin - 5
Bernardo Anor - 4
Jordi Quintilla - 3
Amobi Okugo - 1

In all competitions KC again had one player join the list as Benny Feilhaber jumped into the century club as he finished the 2015 season having started 103 games across all competitions. Joining the list in 2016 should be two players. While I don't expect Nagamura to start a ton of games for KC next year, with him just needing eight starts in all competitions to get to 100 he should easily make it. Dwyer needs just 19 starts to reach 100 which he too should be able to reach. Elsewhere, Chance Myers could get to the 150 start mark with 18 starts across all competitions in 2016.
