Davis Villa ($11.0m – 20.4% Ownership)
With 4 goals in his last 3 games, Villa has definitely found a nice run of form. This week NYC is hosting Orlando who has allowed 13 goals during their 9 away games. If Villa’s forms holds out, I can easily see him coming away with a brace this week. I agree with the poll that he’s the best captain option for round 21!
Kaka ($11.7m – 19.7% Ownership)
This one may come out of nowhere, especially for those who know that I’ve not been big on Kaka all year but I’ve been warming up to him in the second part of the season. What really stands out to me that NYC have allowed 17 goals in 10 home games… that THE WORST record in the league. Orlando is also the 4th best team at scoring on the road so Kaka could be quite the differential captain pick.
This is 50/50 for me honestly. Both players excel at earning points and are both quite affordable. Toronto is definitely not known for their defense so this could be another week where we see Kamara or Finlay coming away with top points for the round.
