Goalkeepers

Carlos Coronel ranks among the league’s best goalkeepers with four clean sheets on the season and up next he faces an Inter Miami side that ranks dead last in goals scored. Since the Red Bulls play one of the earlier games of the round, he makes for a good candidate to use off the bench in a “keeperoo” scenario.

Defenders

Keegan Rosenberry has emerged as the highest priced defender in MLS Fantasy, and for good reason. He’s averaged 8.6 fantasy points per game across the last five rounds, and a home game against the San Jose Earthquakes presents an ample opportunity to continue to produce.

Midfielders

After a pair of duds in Week 9 and 10, Carles Gil bounced back with a banger and 11 points in Week 11. He continues to lead the league with 10 assists and he’ll look to add to his haul against an Atlanta United side that he beat up for 17 points in Week 3.

Forwards

Carlos Vela has delivered a goal or an assist in each of his last four starts, averaging over eight fantasy points per game over that span. His price is still suppressed from his slow start to the season, making him a “set-it-and-forget-it” selection at home against Real Salt Lake.
