Pity Martinez - Atlanta United - Fantasy 2020

From Carlos Vela exiting with a Grade 2 MCL sprain to five matches being postponed on Wednesday, a bizarre Week 3 of MLS Fantasy is in the books. Week 4 presents a quick turnaround, with games getting underway Friday when the Montreal Impact host Toronto FC (8 pm ET | TSN, TVA Sports, MLS LIVE on ESPN+). With games coming hot and heavy, it's vital to monitor starting lineups and news before anticipated roster rotation. With that being said, let’s key in on the top fantasy options at each position in Week 4.

Goalkeepers


Philadelphia Union goalkeeper Andre Blake came through with a pair of clean sheets for a serviceable nine points in Week 3. Up next is a struggling D.C. United attack that's scored just one goal over their last three games, and they'll be without a key contributor in midfielder Edison Flores.

New England Revolution left back Alexander Buttner has one assist in four MLS games | USA Today Sports Images


Alexander Buttner had a coming out party in Week 3, pumping in an eye-popping 23 crosses over two games and assisting on the game-winning goal in Tuesday’s win against D.C. United. The former Manchester United left back has assumed an increased role on set pieces since Carles Gil had Achilles surgery. Facing a New York Red Bulls side that's scored once in their last four games, the opportunity is there for fantasy points on both ends of the field.

Pity Martinez helped Atlanta United get back on track during a 2-0 win over Nashville SC last weekend. The former South American Player of the Year earned a shiny 14 points for his efforts. Now, with Ezequiel Barco questionable, Martinez should continue to shoulder the attacking load against Orlando City on Saturday (3:30 pm ET | Univision, MLS LIVE on DAZN in Canada).

Gustavo Bou scored in his last outing and continues to fire off shots at will. He leads the league with 30 shots and ranks third among all forwards in total fantasy points through the first three rounds. Look for “La Pantera” to further impose his will at home against a struggling New York Red Bulls side on Saturday (8:00 pm ET | FS1, MLS LIVE on DAZN in Canada).
