Goalkeepers

Maxime Crepeau has allowed just one goal through the first three games of 2022, and now he faces a Vancouver Whitecaps FC side that has scored just once in their first three games (10 pm ET | MLS LIVE on ESPN+, DAZN in Canada). With LAFC a sizable home favorite on Sunday, Crepeau is in an ideal spot to collect his third clean sheet of the season.

Defenders

Mamadou Fall has played a pivotal part in LAFC topping the Western Conference table after Week 3. He’s done his job defensively and continues to be an attacking threat on set pieces. Look for the 19-year-old center back to make an impact on both ends of the field in a favorable matchup at home with Vancouver.

Midfielders

Lucas Zelarayan continues to be a fantasy menace, notching 15 or more points in three straight appearances to start the season. Regardless of the tough matchup at New York Red Bulls this Sunday (2 pm ET | MLS LIVE on ESPN+, DAZN in Canada), Zelarayan has shown that he’s fully capable of contributing a serviceable point haul through peripheral stats and bonus points alone.

Forwards

Josef Martinez logged his first goal of 2022 after firing off four shots on goal in last week’s 2-1 win over Charlotte FC. The Venezuelan striker was a handful throughout the match and he figures to be picked out early and often at home against a CF Montréal unit that has conceded a league-high eight goals through three games.
