Fantasy Players to Watch: Union vs. Real Salt Lake

Up next for the Union is a road match against Real Salt Lake, and here are three guys you should consider adding to your roster as the team chases five straight wins. 

Ilsinho - MF - $7.9

Ilsinho may be a high-risk high-reward pick for this week, but he has a solid chance to give you some big points. Against Houston, Ilsinho registered 10 points, his highest output of the season, thanks to his first goal of the season. Moving to the No. 10 position has allowed Ilsinho to become more offensively minded, and fantasy owners should be rewarded sooner than later from the shift. 

Chris Pontius - MF - $8.4

Pontius has enjoyed a successful campaign so far through the 2017 season, but not in the way many expected. Pontius has yet to score a goal, but he paces the Union with six assists. Pontius has scored five points or more in each of his last four games, including dual nine-point matches. And after the switch to the right side, Pontius has also gotten closer to netting his first goal of the season. He will eventually break through, and Real Salt Lake is a good a place as any. 

Oguchi Onyewu - D - $4.7

Fantasy owners may be surprised to know Onyewu is the second highest scoring defender on the Union, trailing Fabinho by three points. Onyewu has excelled in the last four games, posting scores of eight points or more in three of his last four games. He's been a stalwart on the backline for the Union, and while he may be a slightly risky choice on the road, he'll reward owners with another solid performance.
