Giovinco ($12.6m – 24.6% Ownership)
This is the guy that many people the safe bet when it comes to a captain choice. Toronto will once again be w/o two of their three big stars and all of the focus will be on Gio, which is exactly how I believe he likes it. He only played for 45 last round so we know he’ll be coming out swinging. He’s honestly a toss up for number one pick for me, but I can’t argue that he should be in the top two.
Piatti ($10.4m – 8.3% Ownership)
Rounding out my top two captain picks, and also the second highest pick in the r/FantasyMLS poll, is Piatti. He’s been on fire for the last 6 rounds and has a double home game this week. Everything is set for Montreal to have a great DGW as long as they are able to capitalize on these chances. The only down side is they do have one of the tougher DGW schedules, but the Impact have a history of performing under pressure.
Bradley Wright-Phillips ($11.3m – 15.6% Ownership)
At a distant third is last years’ Golden Boot winner, BWP. The loss of Henry has really been felt on his goal totals this season, but his recent run of form, and a promising schedule make him a very tempting captain choice for Round 23.
