Defenders

Andrew Gutman has played an integral role both defensively and going forward for the Red Bulls. He’s recorded double-digit tallies on multiple occasions, and a defender that’s capable of posting 13 or more points in back-to-back matches could help your squad make up ground in a hurry.

Midfielders

Albert Rusnak is in fine form as Real Salt Lake fight tooth and nail for a Western Conference playoff spot. The Slovakian international has three goals and an assist across his last four matches, so you can expect Rusnak to keep powering RSL's attack against the Portland Timbers and Sporting Kansas City.

Forwards

Speaking of good form, LAFC’s Cristian Arango has been unstoppable of late. He’s the primary reason why LAFC are still alive in the playoff race, amassing seven goals and two assists across their last four matches. Not to be outdone is Sporting KC’s Johnny Russell, who has scored or assisted in nine straight. Look for both fantasy stars to shine with big postseason implications hanging in the balance.
