Major League Soccer: Week 3 Fantasy Plays

Gaz's MLS Fantasy tips were red hot last week, he's back with more great insights this week.

Stick With The Little Pea

This might be cheating, but it needs saying. If you haven’t got Chicharito in your team already, you need to put him in ASAP. I advised this last week and said he was Captain material. It couldn’t have turned out better with Chicharito bagging a hat-trick and earning those who Captained him 36 points in the process. His value has already increased by $1 Million. All in all there is little downside to having him in your side.

Clean Sheet On The Menu For City

NY City put in a quality road performance last week and look to be hitting form. Anton Tinnerholm has been central to their defence and he looks like a good pickup in Week 3. City are up against Philadelphia Union who usually struggle for goals. Tinnerholm has picked up 13 points across two games this season and looks like he’ll score decent points this week.

Call A Nani

Orlando have had a slow start to the season with two draws but showed signs of kicking into life last week. Nani scored a delightful back-healed goal in that game and is an integral part of the Orlando attack. Up against a Cincinnati team that have conceded 7 goals in their opening two games, Nani could have a big day in terms of fantasy numbers.

Return Of The King

Nicolas Lodeiro is back from injury and looks like starting for the Sounders in their home tie versus galaxy. Lodeiro adds a lot of attacking flair and if he’s 100% fit will surely post some big numbers this weekend. Lodeiro racked up 8 goals and 12 assist last season and should post similar again this year. He’s pricey at $10.5M but I think he’ll prove his worth.
