2021 Fantasy Outlook
After setting the MLS single-season record with 34 goals in 2019, an injury and pandemic-plagued season saw Vela convert four goals in just seven appearances in 2020. The Mexican international has an eye-popping 54 goals and 31 assists over 69 MLS games, highlighting his ability to contribute more than just goals on the attacking end. Arguably the most dynamic attacker in the league, a healthy Vela should be back to producing video game-like stats for one of the top attacking units in the league.
Out against SKC
FLos Angeles Football Club
OUT
September 3, 2021
Vela (quad) is listed as out for Friday's match against Sporting Kansas City.
ANALYSIS
It's another brutal absence for LAFC with numerous players out because of the international break. The main thing for Vela is that he can recover in the next week, as it's the second muscle issue he's dealt with this season.
