A midweek clash between LAFC and Minnesota United on Wednesday night (10:30 pm ET | MLS LIVE on ESPN+) begins a jampacked Week 14 of MLS Fantasy.

The Loons come with added appeal as the only team with two games this round, giving fantasy managers the potential for an extra shot at a serviceable score. Keep an eye on the results from Thursday’s Concacaf Gold Cup semifinal matches, as several players could return to MLS action as soon as this weekend if they are eliminated.

Let’s hone in on the top options and values at each position to help your team gain some ground on the leaderboards.

Teams on a DGW: MIN

Goalkeepers

Andre Blake is poised to make his return from Gold Cup duty after Jamaica bowed out in Sunday's quarterfinal against the United States. Blake has allowed just one goal across his last four outings at Subaru Park, notching three clean sheets in the process. Philadelphia's longtime starter could keep it going against Chicago Fire FC, who have lost all five of their road games and scored just two goals in that span.

Defenders

Romain Metanire returned to action with five points in Week 13, and he’s averaged over eight points per game across his last three appearances. With Minnesota playing twice this round, there are plenty of chances to come away with a result. The right back supplies a healthy dose of attacking upside to go along with his defensive coverage, and he should be a handful on the flank for both LAFC and Vancouver.

Midfielders

Emanuel Reynoso supplied the game-winning assist in Saturday’s 2-1 victory over Portland, posting an eye-popping 15 crosses, nine chances created and six shots to finish with 13 fantasy points. With Franco Fragapane (thigh) ruled out for Week 14, look for Bebelo to continue to shoulder more of the attacking load during Minnesota’s double game week.

Forwards

Carlos Vela has scored in three straight games and he’s scored or assisted in each of his last seven starts. The LAFC star has been automatic, and despite a tough matchup against Minnesota United, Vela is the first forward I’m looking to when I click the “Add Forward” button.
