MLS Fantasy Round 16 Top Picks

With the new set of Major League Soccer fixtures approaching we take a look at the MLS Fantasy Round 16 top picks. X is full of some of the best fantasy managers in the world. Because of that we bring in expert @dmpwright to reel off some of the best options for the big round ahead.

Looking at the MLS Fantasy Round 16 top picks can be extremely useful to managers. Focusing on some of the best assets for the new week could help with some of the most important decisions in the game like transfers and captaincy.

Round 16

There’s an extremely limited schedule for Round 16. Just eight teams play (New England, New York Red Bulls, Sporting Kansas City, Seattle, St Louis City, Portland, Minnesota and FC Dallas) due to international fixtures. Finding scrubs shouldn’t be difficult at least!

Top targets – Carles Gil, New England Revolution – Midfielder, $13.0m

Once a firm fixture in most MLS Fantasy managers’ teams, Carles Gil has been relegated to a differential for much of this season. This is in part due to the scoring changes but also as a result of New England’s well documented struggles under Caleb Porter.

Predictably, Gil’s xG+xA has dropped off considerably compared with previous seasons (only 0.29 per game so far this term). However, his recent Fantasy scores have been decent enough – including two nines and a 10 in his previous six outings. I expect him to have chances against the Red Bulls.

Evander, Portland Timbers – Midfielder, $13.5m

I highlighted Evander’s early-season performances in my Round 5 picks and he’s continued to go from strength to strength since then. He currently ranks fifth among all midfielders for xG+xA (0.61 per game) and 10th for both key passes (2.38 per game) and shots on target (1.00 per game). That translated into seven goals and six assists on the season so far.

I expect Evander to be in the thick of it once again when Portland travel to St Louis City, who have a fairly obliging home defence, having allowed the tenth-most xGA (1.32 per game).

João Klauss, St Louis City – Forward, $10.0m

I’m expecting goals in the game between St Louis City and Portland. Because of that I can’t overlook João Klauss from the home side, who is among the best forwards in the league for xG+xA (0.62 per game) and total shots (4.48 per game). While that hasn’t translated into many returns, Klauss does have a fairly solid points ‘floor’. This is something that shouldn’t be overlooked in a week with limited options across the board.

Differential – Cameron Harper, New York Red Bulls – Defender, $4.4m

For the record, I’m not predicting many clean sheets this round. However, we’re all required to have at least three defenders, so we might as well try to clean sheet hunt…right? I had my eye on Cameron Harper ahead of the Round 15 DGW, which he unfortunately missed due to injury.

While listed as a defender, Harper typically plays further forward for the Red Bulls, where he’s bagged three goals in as many appearances. Is it point chasing? Maybe, but given defenders are likely to be a crapshoot this week, he’s as good a pick as any. Andrés Reyes is a decent fallback should Harper miss out once again.
