Goalkeepers

Bill Hamid has kept a clean sheet in three consecutive rounds of MLS Fantasy, averaging over eight points per game across that stretch. He’ll look to make it four straight weeks with a shutout at home against a Toronto FC side that managed just three shots in a 2-0 loss to FC Cincinatti in Week 9.

Defenders

With FC Dallas dealing with multiple injuries along their backline, Ryan Hollingshead has shifted higher up the field into a more attacking role recently. It’s paid dividends as he’s registered five shots, created four chances, and delivered two assists over the last three games. While the Vancouver Whitecaps attack has shown signs of life of late, Hollingshead carries a big upside as a player who can pickup points on both ends of the field.

Midfielders

Despite failing to make an impact on the scoresheet, Lucas Zelarayan stuffed the stat sheet in Week 9. He finished with seven points through five shots (three on goal), 11 crosses, and four chances created. Look for Zelarayan to continue to shine when the Columbus Crew break in their shiny new stadium at Lower.com Field on Saturday night.

Forwards

Carlos Vela has a goal and three assists over his last four starts, and he’s starting to look a lot more like the point-producing machine that fantasy managers have become accustomed to over the years. The LAFC star isn’t nearly as goal-dependent for fantasy production compared to the majority of forwards, and he’ll look to continue to cause chaos against a Real Salt Lake side that has conceded in four consecutive contests.
