Rate the U: Jack Elliott is the man

Jack Elliot was the top rated player for the second time this season in our Community Player Ratings poll

MLS: Philadelphia Union at Toronto FC Nick Turchiaro-USA TODAY Sports

Jack Elliot received the highest rating in our Community Player Ratings poll for the second time this season after his performance in the 2-1 win over Toronto FC.

Jack (average rating of 4.52) has become the man on the back line for the Philadelphia Union, and a consistent fan favorite in our community poll this season. He currently sits in third place in the overall average rating this year behind Jamiro Monteiro.

Jack Elliot is a 6-foot-6 central defender that the Union drafted with the 77th pick in the 4th round of the 2017 MLS SuperDraft. Jack played his college ball at West Virginia, and his hometown is London, England.

Elliot currently sits in a three-way tie for the most minutes played for the squad this season. He has so far played every regular season match. Captain Alejandro Bedoya and midfielder Haris Medunjanin are the other two players tied with Jack for most minutes played this season.

One part of Jack’s game is not only getting back and recovering break away runs from opposing attacking players but he is also attempting to disperse the ball quite a lot this season. He is sending long balls forward to the Union’s strikers and attacking midfielders.

Jamiro Monteiro (1 goal, 2 shots) and Kacper Przybylko (1 assit and 2 shots on goal) also finished near the top of the Community Poll this week. Jim Curtin comes in fourth place this week with an average rating of 4.3.

Marco Fabian, comes in at the bottom of the table this week, with an average rating of 2.91 out of 5. The Mexico international is coming back from a recent injury and still adjusting to his new team.

The Union face the Seattle Sounders at home tonight at 7:30 p.m. Check back here after the game to fill out our player rating poll.
