MLS Fantasy: Double Gameweek 27 Preview

Tipster Gilbert previews the upcoming double gameweek 27 in MLS Fantasy and shares his thoughts on why Montreal and SKC are being overlooked this week.

I want to apologize. Why am I writing this now? Hopefully, I want to be consistent with my articles. And in this article, I want to discuss an interesting review about MLS Fantasy for this gameweek plus the upcoming double gameweek. The current top picks for this DGW are Puig, Gil, and Arango.


LAFC Enters Playoffs

Will you come back to this game later? Not necessarily. They proved themselves against Dallas FC and came close to winning with 10 men but were unlucky to win the game. From this team, we can monitor several players, such as Cristian Arango ($12.1M). With 16 goals and four assists, he can fill in for Vela’s absence, no problem. Although still assisted by one of the greatest prophets in Mexico, Carlos Vela ($9.2M), their attacks had little effect. And today, LAFC remains one of the most prolific attacks for this gameweek with the most goals scored in the league after Philadelphia Union and Austin FC.


What are the Chances of SKC and Montreal keeping Cleansheets?

Considering there will be many double gameweek matches, Montreal and SKC are pretty unique. No one would’ve guessed that Romell Quioto ($10.9M) would be such a prolific player. Besides that, the return of Victor Wanyama ($7.8M) is very influential with the rhythm of his game which is quite unique. Similar to SKC, William Agada ($9.3M) will face two teams which tend to concede a lot and with Salloi’s return, will this be the match his owners in MLS Fantasy waited for?

Yes, this is the review I share for this double gameweek. Of course, you might wonder if this match has an impact at this point, or not. Depending on the match later.

MLS Fantasy: Gameweek 24 Preview

Getting into the playoffs is a challenge for Atlanta United but not impossible, and with the return of Lennon as well as Almada, tipster Gilbert believes that they can put up a strong fight in their final push for a playoff spot starting with DC United in his MLS Fantasy gameweek 24 preview.

In this article, we will give you a minimal preview of the best players that will help you get points. Our MLS Fantasy player picks for gameweek 24 are as follows:

Brooks Lennon (ATL)

Lennon is back. He played his first 90 minutes since Gameweek 14 against Columbus, assisting one goal and finishing on eight points in MLS Fantasy. This week he is up against a DC United side who have lost five straight games and conceded six times against Philadelphia last week.

Emanuel Reynoso (MNU)

In his last eight appearances, Reynoso has only scored less than seven points once. During that time, he has scored seven goals and assisted another five.

William Agada (SKC)

Despite only playing above 70+ minutes in four games, Agada has scored five goals and provided one assist. He faces an Earthquakes side that has conceded seven times in their last two away games.

Thiago Almada (ATL)

Another ATL player back, Almada should have no problem carving out DC United this weekend. We know he is full of talent and set-pieces only add to his potential for points. I’m surprised he is only owned by 5% of MLS Fantasy managers.

MLS Fantasy Player Rankings for Matchday 6

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 🙂



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
BonusRomell QuiotoMTLvs CIN7.7M



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.



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



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

MLS Fantasy Player Rankings for Matchday 4

After a high scoring third matchday (at least in a fantasy sense), the Fantasy MLS saga continues after the elimination of 3/4 remaining MLS teams from CCL, and ahead of a double game week just 3 days after this one ends, prepare yourselves for an amazing week of Major League Soccer.

We’ve seen some absolutely amazing performances and hauls from cheap players like Smith, Rubio, and Cowell, all three of which are viable in this round too. But who will surprise us all this time and who will flop?

There’s much more to be seen in MD4 and FantasyTipsters brings you the best picks for the week.



1Rubio RubinRSLvs SJ7MAfter a haul we forecasted in our last week's picks he'll be looking for another one as the Quakes arrive at the low air pressure away game in Sandy, UT.
2Gonzalo HiguainMIAvs ATL10.5MBack after a family tragedy, he's motivated to play his best to honor his mother who supported him the most as he has recently stated too.
3Raúl Ruidíaz SEA@POR10.9MNot an easy away game but Ruidiaz remains an elite target this season and boasts an incredible record of seven goals and two assists in his eight games against the Timbers.
4Diego RossiLAFC@LA9.5MA player that caused a lot of team values to drop last week due to his slow injury comeback and mediocre performance but he should now be fitter and more motivated to get his team a victory in the "El Tráfico".
5ChicharitoLAvs LAFC9.5M
6Robert BeričCHIvs PHI9.7MChance to fight back at home after an embarrassing loss against NYRB's youngsters last week.
7Cade CowellSJ@RSL5.4MMight not be the best game for Cowell after that performance last week, but you should never count out the players that are on a hot streak.
8Diego RubioCOL vs MIN8.2M
9Lucas CavalliniVAN vs MTL9M
10Jhonder CádizNSHvs NE8.4M
11Corey BairdLAFC@LA7.8M
12Alan PulidoSKCvs ATX8.7M
13Anderson Julio RSLvs SJ8.1M
14Ricardo PepiDALvs HOU5MA true budget buster in a decent matchup.
15Felipe MoraPORvs SEA7.5M



1Lucas ZelarayánCLBvs DC8.6MAmong the best players in the league, Zelarayán was rested in midweek CCL action and is playing one of the worst defences so far this season at home, what else can I say?
2NaniORLvs NYC9.7MWhile NYCFC might not be as easy to score against as their opponents from last week, Nani remains a top player and a must-have for many managers.
3Randall LealNSHvs NE8MConsistent, a guaranteed rise in value regardless of performance and always a threat.
4Caden ClarkRBNYvs TOR5.7MThis young wonderkid will look to continue his run of good performances against an unconvincing Toronto side at home.
5Carles GilNE@NSH10.6M
6Cristian Cásseres Jr.RBNYvs TOR7.6MA more experienced option among the Red Bull midfielders is also more likely to return big with his key passes ability.
7Luka StojanovićCHIvs PHI6MA player that's always prowling around the box at his price tag is always a fine option.
8Eduard AtuestaLAFC@LA10.7MAmong the finest midfielders of the game, he will need to be at his top state if LAFC want to win the LA derby this week.
9Jack PriceCOLvs MIN8.6MMight want to check if he starts first after that knock last week.
10Lewis MorganMIAvs ATL8.6M
11Damir KreilachRSLvs SJ7.5MA revelation last round playing at home might be the switcharoo you need.
12Cristian DajomeVANvs MTL7.3M
13Mauricio PereyraORLvs NYC7.9M
14Víctor VázquezLAvs LAFC6.9M
15Diego FagúndezATX@SKC6.1M



1Waylon FrancisCLBvs DC5MThe only team that hasn't conceded yet is very likely to keep another clean sheet, so targeting Columbus Crew defenders seems logical.
2Brad SmithSEA@POR6MLast week we saw Smith closer to opposition goal than Ruidiaz on average and he seems to enjoy playing out of position so even an away game makes him a must-have with how involved he is in attack.
3Kevin LeerdamMIAvs ATL5.4M
4Auston TrustyCOLvs MIN6.3MA bonus point machine that has a good chance of getting a clean sheet is always a great pick in my book.
5Cristián GutiérrezVANvs MTL6M
6Walker ZimmermanNSHvs NE7.2MIs he finally due a goal or not?
7Andrew GutmanRBNYvs TOR6.1M
8Rodrigo SchlegelORLvs NYC6M
9Ryan HollingsheadDALvs HOU6.4MA player that was once considered a must-have is still looking for his true self.
10Boris SekulićCHIvs PHI6.3MSekulić has proven he can assist on multiple occasions so far and a clean sheet isn't out of question either but is less likely.



1John McCarthyMIAvs ATL5.5MDecent game for him and if the Higuain brothers successfully return and help Miami dominate the game then he shouldn't have a lot to worry about.
2Eloy RoomCLBvs DC7MHis price tag might be pretty high but he hasn't conceded any goals so far and that is not likely to change this week.
3David OchoaRSLvs SJ4.6M
4Phelipe Megiolaro Alves
DALvs HOU4.7MA solid replacement for Maurer with another favorable fixture.
5William YarbroughCOLvs MIN6.8M

MLS Fantasy Player Rankings for Matchday 3

After the second round full of surprises and solid showings by NYCFC and Austin FC among others, Fantasy MLS moves on to the third matchday in a week full of CCL games affecting 3/4 CCL teams playing in MD3, as Toronto will be given a bye this round.
That means having to rely on unexpected picks. A matchday full of close ties will make the difference between good and top managers going forward into the season.

We’ve seen some absolutely amazing goals, better than some recent goals of the season and we’re only two rounds in so get your popcorn ready and enjoy!

There’s much more to be seen in MD3 and FantasyTipsters brings you the best picks for the week.



1Raúl Ruidíaz SEALA10.4MThe player is always a threat to opposition defenders and the Galaxy have been far from good defensively in a while.
2Jhonder CádizNSHvs MIA8.4MMiami's leaking defence is a great scoring opportunity for Cadiz who saved his team yet again last week.
3Cade CowellSJvs DC4.9MCowell is on fire after his last week's performance and a match against a DC United team plagued by injuries and his price makes him a really highly rated pick.
4Robert BeričCHI@RBNY10.2MThe silent hardworking Slovenian is always there for you and this week is no exception as he plays NYRB in the first game of the week.
5Gustavo BouNEvs ATL9.6MA man that failed to deliver last week will be motivated this week against an Atlanta team that is worn out from CCL play.
6Lucas CavalliniVAN vs COL9.3MCavallini's form is something to worry about for Colorado.
7Diego RossiLAFC@HOU10MAn easy recommendation if he starts.
8Anderson Julio RSLvs SKC8MDebuting with a brace and leaving the opposition powerless is enough praise for this rising star to guarantee him a spot in our rankings.
9ChicharitoLA@SEA9MKneejerk or not, Seattle or not, you just have to put him in consideration after five goals in his first two matches.
10Rubio RubinRSLvs SKC6.5MAnother cheapish pick who's looking to revive his career in MLS, solid last week and a favorable fixture means he's a good one to consider for this week too.
11Cecilio DomínguezATX@MIN9.5MGreat game by playoff oriented Austin carried by this man's brace, what can we say.
12Mason ToyeMTLvs CLB5.8MWill he get to toy-e around with another opposition defence? It might be Columbus but will they try hard or focus on the CCL?
13Valentin Castellanos
14Romell QuiotoMTLvs CLB8.7MIn another episode of "we target the CCL defences" here's Romell Quioto
15Corey BairdLAFC@HOU7.5M



1NaniORLvs CIN9.2MCheeky skilled player against a team that just can't defend.
2Cristian DájomeVANvs COL7.2MOne of the best differential picks there is in a great game at home.
3Randall LealNSHvs MIA7.5MConsistent, a guaranteed rise in value regardless of performance and always a threat.
4João Paulo MiorSEAvs LA9MThreat from both inside the box and outside it, Mior is a player to be seriously considered for every team especially with his floor.
5Mauricio PereyraORLvs CIN8MComing back from suspension, he's expected to make an immediate impact as Orlando try to finish another day in the office with three points. Replace him with Mueller if he starts.
6Carles GilNEvs ATL10.1M
7Cristian EspinozaSJvs DC8.4MEspinoza has proven his quality (except with penalties) in the last game and he'll be looking to continue where he started.
8Jamiro MonteiroPHIvs NYC9.4M
9Emmanuel ReynosoMINvs ATX9.3MExpecting Minnesota to finally turn things around against the newest addition to the league - FC Austin.
10Jesús MedinaNYC@PHI7.8MThe young Paraguayan was orchestrating everything that happened at the Yankees stadium last round and he will under the spotlight again
11Ezequiel BarcoATL@NE8.2M
12Luka StojanovićCHI@RBNY5.5M
13Diego FagundezATX@MIN5.6M
14Gianluca BusioSKC@RSL7.1M
15Dairon Asprilla POR@DAL4.9M



1Cristián GutiérrezVANvs COL5.5MGutierrez has been wonderful so war and the matchups keep rewarding his bonus points opportunities.
2Alex Roldan SEAvs LA6MA proven pick with a great floor versus a leaky defence can't disappoint.
3Rodrigo SchlegelORLvs CIN5.5MA defender with a home game against Cincinnati is a must especially if Lucho is out.
4Zachary Brault-GuillardMTLvs CLB6MZBG has been nothing but great and a home match vs a CCL team that will probably rotate is not half bad for his run of form.
5Paul MarieSJvs DC5MGreat match for SJ warrants their spot among defenders and a defender that goes forward is always the best pick.
6Donny TolaRSLvs SKC4.5M
7Brandon ByeNEvs ATL4.9MTired Atlanta who couldn't defend in CCL are a good target for a New England home match
8Kai WagnerPHIvs NYC6.5M
9Ryan HollingsheadDALvs POR6.4M
10Jukka RaitalaMINvs ATX4.1MHe's cheap and better than a scrub but that's all there is going for him.



1JT MarcinkowskiSJvs DC5MA good game against a toothless opponent means that a SJE clean sheet is likely.
2Matt TurnerNEvs ATL6.4MOne of the only two teams which kept a clean sheet at home last week and ATL couldn't even score at home in the midweek game.
3David OchoaRSLvs SKC4.6M
4Phelipe Megiolaro Alves
DALvs POR4.3MSince Jimmy Maurer is questionable, a new budget buster is ready to take his spot and the 4.3M price tag will make him an interesting pick for the keeperoo.
5Dayne St. ClairMINvs RSL5.9M

MLS Fantasy Player Rankings for Matchday 2

The elite soccer division of the US and Canada is back after an amazing first round. A lot of surprises in the first round of the MLS Fantasy, from Vela getting subbed off by accident to Portland getting shut down. As a result, some favorites got less than they expected before the first kickoff.

We’ve seen some absolutely amazing goals, better than some recent goals of the season and we’re only one round in so get your popcorn ready and enjoy!

There’s much more to be seen in MD2 and FantasyTipsters brings you the best picks for Matchday 2.



1Carlos VelaLAFCvs SEA10MHe just has to be here, expecting a comeback statement from him after what happened last week. Tough opponents, but nonetheless he is one of the most explosive players in the league. PS: It might not be best to captain him 🙂
2Gustavo BouNEvs DC9.9MAfter a great first week, Bou will be looking to partner up with Gil yet again and bring his team a victory in a tempting home game.
3ChicharitoLAvs RBNY8.5MHis first game matched his tally from last year, great movement and spirit to come back from behind. All eyes will be on Chicharito who is now on course to prove the critics calling him "washed" wrong.
4Ramón ÁbilaMINvs RSL8MBest summarised by two classic books:

Charles Dickens - Great Expectations
Franz Kafka - Process
5Jhonder CádizNSHvs MTL7.9M
6Raúl Ruidíaz SEA@LAFC10.5MOne of the hardest possible matches for him and his club, but Ruidiaz is good at handling it and the season opener surely gave him a lot of confidence.
7Valentin CastellanosNYCvs CIN8.2MA good game and an early one for the NYC forward to prove that he can be consistent again.
8Gonzalo HiguainMIA@PHI10M
9Robert BeričCHI@ATL10M
10Robbie RobinsonMIA@PHI4.5MAfter a great first round it would be odd to miss out on such a player bargain.



1Emanuel ReynosoMINvs RSL9.3MWhat else can be said about the main guy in Minnesota except him having to assemble the forces and get their first win of the season, which they look to be pretty capable of.
2Carles GilNEvs DC9.9MPossibly the most popular captain pick for week 2, Gil has shown pure class and the matchup promises to offer him plenty of attacking points opportunities.
3Randall LealNSHvs MTL7MLeal was the most dangerous player on the pitch against Cincinnatti and if Nashville could produce a similar performance in attack at home again then Leal could be in line for another big performance again.
4Jamiro MonteiroPHIvs MIA8.9MCan the engine of the somewhat tired CCL team propel his team to victory, playing as a #10 again?
5Kellyn AcostaCOLvs ATX6.3M
6Rodolfo PizarroMIA@PHI8.9MA standout performance in the first round of a man orchestrating every attack of his team is a good reason to have him in your squad for the next game, be it away or not.
7Eduard AtuestaLAFCvs SEA9.7MAtuesta deserves a top 10 spot on any home matchday rankings. He has proven that on multiple occasions with his high floor.
8Sebastian LletgetLAvs RBNY7.2M
9Hany MukhtarNSHvs MTL8.4M
10Yimmi CharaPORvs HOU7.7MThe classic hit or miss pick is always somewhere in your mind, you're not sure whether to put him in or not but then he comes back with a big haul when you expect it the least.



1Danny WilsonCOLvs ATX5MA game against the newcomers shouldn't produce much hassle for the Scottish centre-back and his price point makes him attractive to Fantasy MLS managers.
2Christian MaflaNEvs DC4.5MWith Jones out after a red card in the first round, Mafla looks to be poised to start the next match at LB and his price point is not to be overlooked.
3Anton TinnerholmNYCvs CIN6.1MA real bonus point magnet in another game looking well for him. He might just be the man to get this week.
4BressanDAL@SJ5.5MThis solid Dallas defender might prove to be a great asset in what smells of a one-sided tie away in California.
5Richie LaryeaTORvs VAN6MAfter a goal and a great performance overall in the first round despite conceding 4 goals, another matchup against a fellow Canadian squad should give a good opportunity for better-rested Toronto to keep a clean sheet at home.
6Brent KallmanMINvs RSL4,4M
7Guðmundur ThórarinssonNYCvs CIN4.7MCheapest way into the NYC defence that seems likely to grab a clean sheet this week.
8Tristan BlackmonLAFCvs SEA5MWhile the Seattle game might prove to be much harder for LAFC compared to the first round ATX one, Blackmon remains a good option given his price point.
9Nicolas Isimat-MirinSKCvs ORL5.6M
10Nick DePuyLAvs RBNY4.6M



1William YarbroughCOLvs ATX6MColorado playing in their home fortress against newcomers who have proven they can possess a threat, but an away goal vs Colorado would be a surprise nonetheless even for decent Austin.
2Dayne St. ClairMINvs RSL5.9MAfter an underwhelming performance on matchday 1, Minnesota will be looking for a clean sheet vs RSL, hopefully, this time a shutdown of their opponents.
3Jimmy MaurerDAL@SJ6MAnother decent game for the experienced goalkeeper, playing against possibly the weakest team in MLS away will turn some eyes towards him.
4Matt TurnerNEvs DC5.9MNE will look to keep a CS in this match with their home advantage against a DC attack that doesn't inspire much confidence.
5John PulskampSKCvs ORL4.2MHe is cheap and will be looking into proving he's worthy of a spot on the team while the other options are away. A great keeperoo option for this week as he plays first.
