With that being said, let’s get into the top players and values to help your side shoot up the leaderboards.

Goalkeepers

Joe Willis and Nashville SC have kept three consecutive clean sheets, and now he’ll look to keep it going at home on Sunday against expansion side Austin FC (9 pm ET | FS1, FOX Deportes). It's also worth highlighting the value that's emerged from Seattle Sounders starter Stefan Frei and Portland Timbers starter Steve Clark both suffering injuries. Their backups warrant consideration at home in Week 6.

Defenders

It’s wash, rinse and repeat with Brad Smith as he continues to deliver the fantasy goods. He scored another goal and finished with 13 points in Week 5, marking the fifth consecutive week that he’s delivered eight or more fantasy points. The consistent two-way production makes Smith a high-upside play until further notice.

Midfielders

Carles Gil ($11.6 million) continues to show why he’s the most expensive player in the game. He’s averaging over nine fantasy points per game, as his ability to accumulate points across multiple categories makes him reliable for consistent production. Look for Gil to play an integral role going forward in Saturday’s clash with the New York Red Bulls (8 pm ET | MLS LIVE on ESPN+).

Forwards

Week 5 saw Carlos Vela return from an injury that he sustained on opening weekend, with the star striker logging 20 minutes off the bench. While it’s unclear if Vela will start against the Colorado Rapids on Saturday (10:30 pm ET | MLS LIVE on ESPN+), his status is worth monitoring leading up to kickoff. He's proven capable of piling up points in limited minutes, and he brings some serious value at just $9.5 million.
