Ethan Finlay ($8.8m – 26.1% Ownership)
Finlay had a rough game against Montreal in Round 19, but every player has an of game and I expect that game to be an outlier by the end of the season. The normal Finlay performance is one full of goals and assists and two games against Chicago will offer him ample opportunities for both. He easily becomes my top captain pick for Round 20.
Kei Kamara ($9.4m – 37.6% Ownership)
Contrary to my opinion, the MLSFB/Reddit poll has Kamara just edging Finlay out as top pick. This is no surprise as Kamara is the top scoring player in the league right now and will be one of Finlay’s prime targets during their double game against Chicago. No matter who ends up getting more points, I don’t think either of these two players would be a poor choice.
Sebastian Giovinco ($10.3m – 24% Ownership)
After his goal scoring bonanza in Round 19, it looks like Gio has his groove back. Philly has only won 1 of its last 6 away games so the chances of Gio coming away with another good score are high. But will his numbers be enough to beat the players with a DGW? It’s a risk in my opinion.
