Goalkeepers

Stefan Cleveland has filled in admirably since usual starter Stefan Frei went down with an injury in Week 5. On Sunday (9:30 pm ET | FS1, FOX Deportes), the Sounders host a struggling Austin FC attack that hasn’t scored in back-to-back games. At just $4.9 million, Cleveland makes for a strong value play, especially if your ‘keeper candidate strikes out on your bench.

Defenders

Brooks Lennon has emerged as Atlanta United’s leading set-piece taker, giving him fantasy upside with additional opportunities to tally an assist on Saturday (3:30 pm ET | MLS LIVE on ESPN+). Nashville SC have scored just one goal across their last two games, including a 0-0 draw in their only road game of the season. Look for Lennon to continue to rack up fantasy points on both ends of the field.

Midfielders

Carles Gil produced a 15-point effort in Week 6 to overtake Brad Smith as the highest-scoring player in MLS Fantasy. The majority of those points came in the form of bonus points, highlighting his ability to contribute regardless of goals or assists. When New England goes to TQL Stadium on Saturday (3 pm ET | MLS LIVE on ESPN+), he should have little trouble pulling the strings against an FC Cincinnati defense that has conceded a league-high 14 goals.

Forwards

Carlos Vela returned to the starting lineup for the first time since Week 1, assisting on a goal and finishing with seven points across 59 minutes. The LAFC star's price continues to drop, and he’s simply too cheap to ignore at home against New York City FC (5 pm ET | 5 pm ET | UniMas, TUDN, Twitter).
