Without a doubt, Josef Martinez has been one of the best players in the MLS for the past three years, winning the MLS championship with Atlanta United in 2017.

The Venezuelan striker has scored a total of 88 goals in the past three three years and was the league's top scorer in the 2018 campaign.

Last year he was fighting to win the top scorer mantle but fell short just behind Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Carlos Vela by only scoring 27 goals, while the Swede got 30 and the Mexican ended up with 34.
