This weekend, Orlando City will travel to Colorado to take on the second ranked team in the Western Conference - the Colorado Rapids. The Rapids have one of the best defenses in the league, and Orlando City will have to put in some extra effort to find that offensive magic. Here are some players to keep an eye on for your DraftKings roster!
Haven’t tried DraftKings? It’s easy. Each player is given a salary cap of $50,000 to draft their eleven player lineup. Players’ salaries are determined by their on-field performance, FPPG, or Fantasy Points Per Game.
Cyle Larin 21 FPPG $9,300 -- With 12 goals this season, including one off an assist by Kaká last week against the Chicago Fire, Cyle Larin will be a strong part of the attacking game necessary to find goals against a strong Rapids defense. Look for Larin to continue to connect with star midfielder Kaká and find the back of the net.
Kaká 29.5 FPPG $9,800 -- With four goals and eight assists this season, Kaká is on fire. He had a stellar game against Chicago, that Kreis called a “special performance.” Look for Kaká to continue his hot streak, and connect with players like Larin and Molino while scoring some goals of his own.
Kevin Molino 3.5 FPPG $6,800 -- After coming from a slight injury, Kevin Molino gave the offense a boost in last week’s match against the Chicago Fire. He’s back to full health this week, and is a contender for a starting role in Saturday’s matchup. Look for Molino to continue his magic and helping to create the strong attack necessary to score against Colorado.
