Goalkeepers

After punching their ticket to the Concacaf Champions League final, Stefan Frei and the Seattle Sounders will look to get their regular season run back on track. Frei is in prime position to collect his first clean sheet of the season against an Inter Miami side that has scored just six goals in six games, with three of those coming in last week’s 3-2 outburst versus New England.

Defenders

Brooks Lennon is in a good bounce-back spot after logging just two points against Charlotte FC last week. He continues to play an integral role on set pieces, and playing at home against a leaky FC Cincinnati side presents a good opportunity for Lennon to post a monster score.

Midfielders

Carles Gil keeps racking up fantasy points despite New England’s early-season struggles. He has three goals and an assist in five starts, and he’ll be eager to help the Revs get back on track at home against expansion side Charlotte FC.

Forwards

Carlos Vela will look to put his name back on the scoresheet after coming close on numerous occasions in last week’s El Trafico thriller. He’s averaging seven fantasy points per game and is in prime position to keep it rolling at home against a Sporting KC side that is 0W-4L-0D on the road, having been outscored 9-2 over that span.
