Colorado Rapids: Tim Howard
Although the 38-year-old is not what he used to be during his days at Everton, he’s still the best player for the Rapids. Becoming a fan favorite, Howard has been very solid in a poor and declining Rapids backline.
FC Dallas: Maxi Urruti
What can you say about Maxi Urruti? The guy is very clinical in front of goal scoring with 11 goals and adding four assists in 16 appearances. He is a well-rounded forward who can give you production every game he plays.
Houston Dynamo: Erik ” Cubo ” Torres
Would you have predicted the type of season Torres is have before the season even started? If you said yes, you are an absolute liar, as Cubo is the clear favorite to win MLS Comback Player of the Year as it shows. Scoring 12 goals in 18 appearances, Torres is the key to the Dynamo’s surprising success this season.
LA Galaxy: Romain Alessandrini
In the Galaxy’s poor season, Romain Alessandrini is hands down the best player on their team. So far after racking up eight goals and seven assists, Alessandrini is loving life in MLS after 10 years with Marsille in Ligue 1. If the Galaxy make the playoffs, Alessandrini will be the main reason why.
Minnesota United: Christian Ramirez
Coming into this season, many people said Christian Ramirez was not going to bring his form from the NASL, in the MLS with new club Minnesota United. Well, he has proven his critics wrong scoring 10 goals in 19 appearances. Ramirez represents the Loons well in their 1st season in Major League Soccer.
Portland Timbers: Diego Valeri
Ever since moving to Portland in 2013, Diego Valeri has been the main piece to the Timbers squad. He has scored over 10 goals in four of his five years in MLS. As one the best attacking midfielders in the league, Valeri is the Timbers star player in an up and down season.
Real Salt Lake: Albert Rusnak
In RSL’ very poor season, Albert Rusnak is their best player. He is money well spent scoring four goals and seven assists this season. Rusnak will be one of RSL’s main stars in the club’s future.
San Jose Earthquakes: Chris Wondolowski
Still in 2017, Wondo is still being Wondo scoring eight goals in 19 appearances. At 35, Wondolowski is still the face of the Quakes and still banging in goals. Well done Wondo, well done.
Seattle Sounders: Clint Dempsey
Clint Dempsey. Clint freaking Dempsey. Whether he is 34 or 24, Deuce is still scoring no matter as age. Scoring seven goals this season, he has been key in the Sounders’ push to the playoffs. The 34 year old is really a true hero.
Sporting Kansas City: Tim Melia
Tim Melia is the best GK in MLS and the best player on SKC. It is not even close, the man has been phenomenal for them this season. He is the clear favorite to win Goalkeeper of the Year and win take Kansas City far this season.
Vancouver Whitecaps FC: Kendall Waston
The last here are the Whitecaps and Kendall Waston is the best player on their team. The Whitecaps have been pretty mediocre at best this season, but the Costa Rican has been solid. He deserves his props off being one of the league’s better defenders.
