Bonus Points: Looking at the hottest players for Round 23's double-game week

As Schuyler Redpath pointed out in this week’s Monday Morning Center Back, Round 23 is just around the corner. With four teams on a double-game week and the transfer deadline looming (Wednesday, 8 pm ET), this week’s Bonus Points is going to focus on exactly what you need for this week: the form and playing minutes for the players on DGW squads. These players will have double the opportunity to score points for your team in Round 23, and quite a few of them are hot right now.

Without further ado, here are the points per 90 minutes and the percentage of team minutes played for all DGW players that had at least 90 minutes over the past five matches:

Most of the points are being generated at the attacking end of the pitch, so that’s where you should focus your transfers this week. Dax McCarty, Sebastian Giovinco, Ignacio Piatti, Sacha Kljestan, Cyle Larin and Bradley Wright-Phillips have all been scoring goals and starting consistently for their clubs.

The only high-scoring forward on this list to be careful of is Anatole Abang – he’s scored two goals in the Red Bulls’ last four matches, but he’s only started once in that time frame. So keep that in mind if you’re thinking about depending on him for points.

Who are you bringing in for the DGW? Are you going all-in this week, or are you saving some transfers for the DGW in Round 25? Let me know in the comments section below, and good luck this week!
