The campaign continues! We take a look at MLS Fantasy Round 24 team reveals from some of the most experienced managers around. They share their thoughts on their teams going into the new round including captaincy.
Looking at MLS Fantasy Round 24 team reveals can be extremely beneficial for new managers. Seeing some of the best assets, who managers will be looking to captain and their general thoughts can help bring clarity within our own teams.
- My primary goalkeeper is likely to be Dayne St Clair, with Minnesota probably standing the best chance of a clean sheet among the midweek fixtures. New England and NYCFC defensive assets also appeal given they play twice at home in Round 24. However, I’m not sure I trust either team to keep a clean sheet this gameweek.
- In defence, Brooks Lennon, Rodrigues and Kai Wagner are all locks thanks to their bonus point potential.
- Thiago Martins is also included for now, although he will be a bench play at best. While I have reservations about the NYCFC defence, Martins, like Rodrigues, typically accumulates enough bonus points to make up for the lack of clean sheets.
- There are several good options in midfield this week. I have currently opted for Thiago Almada, Cristian Espinoza, Dániel Gazdag, Carles Gil and Lionel Messi. However, several others, including Lucho Acosta, Hany Mukhtar and Emmanuel Reynoso also appeal. Although, I’d recommend playing Acosta from the bench if you select him as he’s one yellow card away from suspension .
- One of Messi and Gazdag is likely to be my captain. Messi is Messi (although he does seem to be at risk of rotation), while Gazdag has already scored 20 Fantasy points against Toronto and New York Red Bulls this season.
- There aren’t many players that appeal in forward positions. A Philadelphia triple up is a must with their fixtures, which sees Julián Carranza come into my team for the first time since Round 18.
- Cucho Hernández is also worthy of inclusion given his impressive underlying stats, despite Columbus having two away games in Round 24.
- John McCarthy, Diego Palacios (if available) and Dénis Bouanga will be my fallbacks should none of my bench players hit, with LAFC’s solitary Round 24 fixture coming at the end of the gameweek.
- I hit 117 points in Round 23 with an OR move up three spots to 1289.
- Messi captain was a fail. I heard he might not start but I didn’t move him. I think Messi starts against Nashville but maybe not LAFC.
- Captaincy is up in the air but on Almada for now. However, I will watch for Messi news.
- I’m not sure why Silva is yellow flagged for ATL so I will watch as he could be a good pick.
- There is lots of DGWs this week but LAFC does not have one, Van are on the road for both.
- I don’t love any of the goalkeeper options for this double gameweek but I’m currently looking at Sirois and Burki with somewhat favourable fixtures.
- In defence, Julian Gressel was one of the first defenders in my team this week after his 12 pointer in round 23 with five of them coming from bonus accumulation.
- Kai Wagner, Brooks Lennon and Rodrigues were all easy inclusions with their attacking potential and bonus accumulation.
- My last defender is Jordi Alba who kept a clean sheet in his first MLS appearance against the Red Bulls.
- Lionel Messi is, despite him being benched last round, a lock for me in midfield and he’s likely to be my captain if he starts against Nashville in his first game.
- I’m also looking at Daniel Gazdag, Christian Espinoza and Eduard Löwen in midfield this week. Ryan Gauld and Emanuel Reynoso are also in my thoughts.
- My last midfield pick is Luciano Acosta though I’m currently benching him as he’s on yellow card watch so that’s something to consider when picking him for your fantasy teams.
- My FWD picks this week is Josef Martinez, subject to him starting the first game against Nashville. I’m also looking at Cucho who’s continued to impress after Lucas Zelarayan’s departure to the Saudi league during the summer.
- My last forward spot is occupied by Mario Gonzalez who I’ll scrub if my bench does well.
