This is the second to last ranking before the end of the regular season. Clubs either have 2 or 3 games left to play and it is looking like Tolkin is going to hold on to the #1 spot over Gaga Slonina. 

TRENDING UP

  • Kayden Pierre: With Graham Zusi out, Pierre has received another run of starts and for the most part he has been good and has shown his continued development from last season
  • Cade Cowell: Cade has been earned the opportunity to start the last 4 games and while he has not delivered a goal contribution, he’s been dangerous and creating an adequate amount of chances
  • Tayvon Gray: recorded his first assist of the season and is having a quietly solid season as a first team, part-time starter
  • Daniel Edelman: Danny has started the last 7 games with Frankie Amaya out, he appears to be the preferred option and has been playing pretty well 

TRENDING DOWN

  • Caleb Wiley: Caleb has seen a significant drop in minutes with Gutman back and Atlanta opting to go with different options at left-wing
