Fantasy points have been pouring in over the last two rounds and Round 23 sets up nicely to continue that trend.

With 12 teams playing twice, fantasy managers are in prime position to double up on points across the board. In addition to roster rotation, it’s important to be mindful of multiple high-profile DGW players one yellow card away from suspension.

LAFC and D.C. United kick the round off on Tuesday (10:30 pm ET | MLS LIVE on ESPN+), so let’s jump right in and look at the top plays and values at each position.

Teams on a DGW: ATL, CLT, COL, DAL, DC, LAFC, NE, NYC, PHI, RBNY, TOR, VAN

Goalkeepers

Maxime Crepeau posted his seventh clean sheet of the season in LAFC’s 5-0 triumph over Charlotte FC last round. He’ll look to make it two straight shutouts on Tuesday, going up against a D.C. United team that has been held scoreless for over 270 minutes, including five straight on the road.

Defenders

Diego Palacios is firing on all cylinders, making things happen on the attacking end while also holding it down defensively for LAFC. The left back has an assist in three straight appearances, four if we’re counting his pinpoint delivery to teammate Carlos Vela in the 2022 MLS All-Star Game presented by Target. With two favorable matchups in Round 23, we can look for “Chiqui” to continue to thrive on both ends of the field.

Midfielders

Carles Gil scored a goal on nine shots (four on frame) on the way to 12 fantasy points in New England’s 1-0 win over D.C. United in Round 22. While the Revolution have both of their DGW matches on the road, Gil has shown that he’s in the “matchup proof” conversation as someone who can pile up the points regardless of goal contributions.

Forwards

Lorenzo Insigne scored for the second straight match after firing off eight shots (five on goal) in Toronto FC’s 3-1 win over Portland last round. He’ll look to breach a stingy New England Revolution defense before going on the road to face an Inter Miami team that has given up two or more goals in each of their last four games at DRV PNK Stadium.
