Blink and you’ll miss the front end of a crucial double game week. A rare three-game Tuesday slate gets the party started, and with 21 teams playing twice we could get two whacks at hitting a good score.

Rotation is sure to be a factor, so if you’re loading up on DGW players you’ll want to confirm that your players are starting in the first game. Let’s get right into the latest rankings to help carry your team up the leaderboards in Week 21.

Teams NOT on a DGW: NE, NSH, PHI, SEA, SKC, VAN

Goalkeepers

Brad Guzan has kept a clean sheet in three of his last four home appearances, and a pair of favorable matchups at Mercedez-Benz Stadium in Week 21 puts him in a good spot to continue to produce. Up first is an FC Cincinnati side that ranks last in the Eastern Conference in goals scored before closing out the week against a D.C. United group that Atlanta recently beat 2-1 in Week 17.

Defenders

Oswaldo Alanis converted a penalty kick in Week 20’s 1-1 draw at Dallas, giving his fantasy stock a massive bump if he has emerged as San Jose’s primary penalty kick taker. He’s fully capable of turning in a serviceable score through bonus points alone, and given his attacking appeal, Alanis makes for a strong play with two opportunities to top double-digit points.

Midfielders

Marcelino Moreno and Ezequiel Barco have been key ingredients in Atlanta United’s run of five wins over their last six games. Add recently acquired DP Luiz Araujo into the mix and suddenly fantasy managers are faced with a tough decision considering only three players from the same team can be rostered in MLS Fantasy. Expect all three attackers to play an important role in what sets up as arguably the most favorable DGW schedule versus FC Cincinnati and D.C. United.
