Philadelphia Union will take on Toronto FC this Friday at Talen Energy Stadium in their last match before the World Cup Break. As the Union prepare for Toronto, we give you the best Union options to slot in your fantasy lineup this week.
Fafa Picault - M - $5.7
If you’re looking for a sleeper this week to insert in your lineup, then Philadelphia Union winger Fafa Picault is your man. Picault did not play in the club’s Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup match this past Wednesday and is set to have fresh legs for Toronto. Picault is coming off a start where he scored a goal for Philadelphia while the club played with nine men. Overall this year Picault has done his damage at Talen Energy Stadium, logging both of his assists this season.
Borek Dockal – M – $9.2
With the Union returning home, the man to play in the middle is Czech international Borek Dockal. Philadelphia’s number 10 has been excellent for the Union, recording three goals and six assists in his first season in MLS. All of his goals have come at Talen Energy Stadium and five of his six assists have been recorded inside of Talen Energy Stadium. With Philadelphia playing host to Toronto, fantasy owners everywhere should take note of Dockal.
Andre Blake – GK – $8.1
Once again the theme of this fantasy segment is the play of Union players inside of Talen Energy Stadium. Fantasy owners who were smart enough to pick up goalkeeper Andre Blake should pencil the Jamaican International in their lineups this week. In 2018, Blake owns a goals-against average of just 1.00 at Talen Energy Stadium. Blake owns an all-time record of 20-10-9 at Talen Energy Stadium in MLS regular-season matches. With Toronto coming to town, look for Blake to stand tall once again in net.
