Goalkeepers

Andre Blake posted his third straight clean sheet in a 2-0 win over Charlotte FC in Week 5. He’ll look to run it to four in a row Saturday when the Philadelphia Union host a Columbus Crew side that was shut out by Nashville SC in their last outing and have just one goal in their last two matches (6 pm ET | ESPN+ in the US, DAZN in Canada).

Midfielders

Carles Gil was kept at bay by a stingy New York Red Bulls unit last round, logging just four points in Week 5. That should be little reason to hesitate to roster him on the road against an Inter Miami CF defense that has shipped three goals in consecutive matches and 13 goals across their last four (Saturday, 3 pm ET | ESPN, ESPN Deportes).

Forwards

Javier "Chicharito" Hernandez comes into the El Trafico rivalry hot, netting a brace in Week 5 to put him just one goal back in the Golden Boot presented by Audi race. LAFC’s Carlos Vela is level with the Galaxy striker on four goals, and both star forwards figure to see multiple opportunities in Saturday’s heavyweight clash in California (7:30 pm ET | FOX, FOX Deportes).
