Fantasy: Positional rankings for Week 6 games this week and weekend

Week 6 of MLS Fantasy starts on Wednesday and it’s another packed week that sees 10 teams playing twice. While there are several attractive options that only play once, players on a DGW come with the added bonus of having two opportunities to turn in a good score. With that in mind, let’s get into it!

Goalkeepers

Brad Guzan has the best schedule of any DGW goalkeeper, albeit Atlanta United are on the road for both games. He kept a clean sheet the last time he faced both Inter Miami CF and Nashville SC, and the expansion sides rank dead last in the goal scoring department.

Brad Guzan ATL at MIA, at NSH $8.2
Clement Diop MTL vs. TOR, at VAN $8.4
Sean Johnson NYC vs. CIN $10.1

Defenders

Reto Ziegler converted a penalty kick against Minnesota United in Week 4 and he continues to stand over a share of set pieces. His ability to garner points on both ends of the field makes for an appealing anchor in defense.
