The first double game week of the 2022 MLS Fantasy season is in full swing, and if you didn’t load up on DGW players, there are several single-game players worthy of a roster spot. Let’s jump right in and look at the top options still available for Week 5.

Goalkeepers

Philadelphia Union's Andre Blake has kept a clean sheet in two straight matches, and he’s in a good spot at home against Charlotte FC (7:30 pm ET | MLS LIVE on ESPN+ in US, DAZN in Canada). The expansion side has scored just one goal in two road games this season.

Defenders

Kai Wagner has two assists in four appearances and continues to be a key contributor on both ends of the field. Look for Philadelphia's left back to have a big impact at home against Charlotte FC.

Midfielders

Carles Gil has picked up right where he left off from his 2021 Landon Donovan MVP-winning campaign, hitting double-digit points in all three matches he’s started this season.

Gil does enough across the board to warrant paying for his hefty $12 million price tag (the most expensive player in the game) regardless of if he scores or assists vs. the New York Red Bulls (7:30 pm ET | MLS LIVE on ESPN+ in US, DAZN in Canada).

Forwards

Gonzalo Higuain opened his 2022 account last week, and he continues to play an integral role in Inter Miami CF's attack.

He’s taken on more of a playmaker role through the first four games of the season, and at home against Houston Dynamo FC (8 pm ET | MLS LIVE on ESPN+, DAZN in Canada) presents an excellent opportunity for the former Juventus and Real Madrid star to continue to make an impact on the attacking end.
