Fantasy Players to Watch: Union vs. LA Galaxy

The Union are hitting the road once again, flying out to Los Angeles to take on the Galaxy at 10:30 p.m. ET Saturday night. Here are three players to target in this week in fantasy. 

CJ Sapong - F - $7.8

It's no secret Sapong has been a bright spot for the Union, and he's definitely a player to target in fantasy this week. Sapong has four goals on the season and added an assist against Montreal last Saturday. He's coming off a 14-point performance against Montreal, and has a goal in his only visit to StubHub Center in a Union kit. Sapong has found his scoring touch, and it'd be smart to ride his strong performances into this week. 

Roland Alberg - MF - $7.9

Along the lines with Sapong, Alberg is finding his scoring touch once again. He had two goals against Montreal, one of which he converted on a penalty kick. Alberg's 12 points was the second best for the Union in fantasy, and is looking to build off that for the rest of the season. Alberg has 11 goals in 33 games played for the Union, and his .33 career goals per game is the best ratio for a player with more than 15 games played. There may be sexier midfielder picks this week, but Alberg has a chance for another major week against the Galaxy. 

Haris Medunjanin - MF - $8.0

If at this point you haven't picked up Medunjanin, now would be a good time to do so. He picked up his team leading third assist against Montreal on Sapong's goal. He is one of the top players in MLS in creating chances. His price has risen throughout the 2017 season, but he's still a worthy pick up. You're going to want him on your team.
