Philadelphia Union will return to the pitch this weekend when they square off against Western Conference foe Vancouver Whitecaps. As Head Coach Jim Curtin prepares his Starting XI, we give insight on who you should start this weekend in your fantasy lineup.
Borek Dockal - M - $9.7
Borek Dockal has found his grove in Major League Soccer and the results are showing on the Union stat sheets. Dockal enters this week in a tie for seventh in MLS with six assists in 2018. Dockal’s six assists lead all Philadelphia Union players. Dockal is also tied for the club lead in goals scored with Ilsinho. With the Union returning to Talen Energy Stadium, look for Dockal to play a huge role as five of the Czech international’s six assists have come in home matches.
Keegan Rosenberry – D – $9.4
If you’re looking for a solid player to insert on your backline, look no further than the former No. 3 overall pick in the 2016 MLS SuperDraft. Keegan Rosenberry has matched his games played total from last season and has surpassed his minutes total from 2017. The MLS All-Star has been the leader on a young backline for the Union that features two members of the Philly Five. Rosenberry has not only been exceptional on defense, but he’s also contributed offensively. The Georgetown product is just one goal and one assist shy of tying personal bests in both categories.
Alejandro Bedoya – M - $8.9
The Captain for Philadelphia is having his best season yet in a Union kit. Alejandro Bedoya has been instrumental in the club’s summer run as they battle for prime positioning in the Eastern Conference standings. Philadelphia has earned a results in every match played since May 9, when Bedoya plays 90 minutes for the club. This past weekend Bedoya led the Union to a 2-1 victory over Eastern Conference rival New York red Bulls in the Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup. With his two assists, Bedoya became just the fifth player in club history to record two assists in an Open Cup match.
