After a stressful double gameweek that had us all worried about our stars after the first part of it, which we have not been able to cover properly due to holidays and other obligations, Fantasy Tipsters is back with our matchday 6 rankings for MLS fantasy.

As we’re closing in on NT breaks and preparations for continental championships or just friendlies, there are many options. We’re here to help you make the right ones 🙂


Forwards

1Carlos VelaLAFCvs COL9.5MHe should finally be back to the starting XI so a #1 spot is just there to remind you how impactful a possible haul by him could be on your rank.
2Raúl Ruidíaz SEAvs ATL11MRui is finding goal involvements one way or the other and this round shouldn't be an exception.
3Alan PulidoSKC@SJ8.8MPulido looks to have finally found his goal-scoring form so he's a decent shout away to the Quakes.
4Bjorn JohnsenMTLvs CIN5.2MGreat opportunity should he start.
5Gonzalo HiguainMIA@CHI10.6MHiguain got right back on track in the last game and Chicago look like a good next target for him.
6ChicharitoLA@POR10.4MPortland might turn out to be just the game for an elite poacher like Cheech.
7Cade CowellSJvs SKC5.6M
8Jhonder CádizNSHvs ATX7.5M
9Diego RossiLAFCvs COL8.9M
10Valentin CastellanosNYCvs CLB9.5M

Midfielders

1Carles GilNEvs RBNY11.6MThe midfielder with the highest average points so far (9.33) is the most popular captain pick for this week and for a reason.
2Mauricio PereyraORLvs TOR8.4MHe has mostly been a floor player so far this season but with Nani suspended we could a ceiling game from him soon as his involvement in attack increases.
3Jamiro MonteiroPHI@DC10.5MThe fact that it is an away game shouldn't affect Monteiro much given that it is one of the worst teams in the league.
4Lewis MorganMIA@CHI9.6M
5Randall LealNSHvs ATX7.9M
6Eduard AtuestaLAFCvs COL10.2M
7Djordje MihailovićMTLvs CIN7MHe is an option if you need an attacker against Cincinnati but only off the bench.
8Joao PauloSEAvs ATL9.6M
9Cristian Espinoza SJvs SKC8M
10Fafà PicaultHOUvs VAN6.9M
11Bryan AcostaDALvs RSL7.6M
12Jesus MedinaNYCvs CLB8.9MNYCFC have a big home advantage to their unique stadium and Medina has three goals in his two games at home this season.

Defenders

1Walker ZimmermanNSHvs ATX8.2M
2Brad SmithSEAvs ATL7MThree goals and an assist in five starts isn't too bad for a defender.
3Antonio CarlosORLvs TOR8.1M
4Anton TinnerholmNYCvs CLB7.6MA home game against a team that defends well but isn't as sharp on the attack plus a chance to play out of position? Count me in!
5Ryan HollingsheadDALvs RSL6.1M
6Eddie SeguraLAFCvs COL6.2MLAFC might be at the bottom of the Western conference for now but they won't be there for too long.
7Kamal Miller MTLvs CIN6MEarly switcheroo option against Cincinnati who are yet to win a game.
8Adam Lundqvist HOUvs VAN5.8M
9Rodrigo SchlegelORLvs TOR7M
10BressanDALvs RSL6.9M




Goalkeepers

 

RankNameTeamOpponentValueComments
1Stefan ClevelandSEAvs ATL4.4MAt 4.4M Cleveland seems like a must for any keeperoo and his clean sheet odds aren't bad either.
2Pedro GalleseORLvs TOR7.7MAs much as Toronto are trying to find their way through injuries and suspensions and incorporate their new signings, they still don't look likely to score vs Orlando.
3Joe Willis NSHvs ATX6.7MAustin have shown that they can find space and threaten the opponents away, but can they really score against a stiff Nashville side?
4Phelipe Megiolaro Alves
DALvs HOU5.4MHis potential rise in value and good performance on replacing Maurer is not something to be overlooked.
5Marko MarićHOUvs VAN5.8MHouston seem likely to keep a clean sheet here and Marić could be a great differential pick should they manage to do so
