With just two weeks to go in the MLS Fantasy season, Week 13 presents a prime opportunity to shuffle things up on the leaderboards. All 26 teams play twice, and with four teams kicking things off on Tuesday it is vital to look over your lineup before the first kickoff to ensure your squad is set. Let’s jump right in and look at the top plays at each position this week.

Goalkeepers


Steve Clark is in a favorable spot this week with two winnable home games on the slate. Up first, on Wednesday (10 pm ET | TV & streaming info) he faces a sputtering LA Galaxy attack that has scored just once over their last three games. He rounds the week out Sunday (10 pm ET | TSN in Canada; MLS LIVE on ESPN+ in US) against a resurgent Vancouver side that he managed to shutout in their last meeting just four weeks ago.

Because of his ability on attacking set pieces, Reto Ziegler is a good bet for big points on this DGW.| USA Today Sports


Reto Ziegler remains high on the fantasy radar due to his role on set pieces and penalty kicks. Clean sheet points are a real possibility with two home games this week, and if the shutouts don’t come in, the FC Dallas center back could produce some attacking points to fall back on.

Midfielders


Nico Lodeiro is everything we want in a fantasy player. He’s the primary set piece taker, penalty kick taker and string-puller in the Seattle attack. His 8.65 fantasy points per game average is tops among active players, and with games against Vancouver and Colorado incoming, he’s worth moving mountains for to make room for his lofty price tag.

Back from international duty, Diego Rossi is hoping to add on to his league-leading 12 goals this week.| USA Today Sports


We saw the return of fantasy monster Carlos Vela in Week 12. While he delivered a goal in 20 minutes off the bench in an El Trafico win, he’ll likely continue to see his minutes monitored as he gets back up to speed. His return gives a boost to Diego Rossi and the rest of the potent LAFC attack. With Rossi’s minutes more secure, he’s a good bet to add to his league-leading goal haul this week.
