Things return to normal this week, as just three teams are on bye, and nobody plays more than once. This round we have a tie at the top of the leaderboard between Futbol5 and Bayern Neverlusen on 118 points. Both teams captained Camilo (VAN, $8.0M), who rewarded them by scoring 50 points on 3 goals and 2 assists. Futbol5 also got 12 points from Michael Harrington (POR, $5.3M) and 11 from Matteo Ferrari (MTL, $4.8M). Bayern Neverlusen was also aided by Troy Perkins (MTL, $5.0M) with 12 points, and Russell Teibert's (VAN, $5.6M) 11. Stallions FC is still the overall leader.
Portland's Donovan Ricketts ($5.1M) led all goalkeepers with 17 points, primarily helped by his 2 clean sheets. Perkins and his 12 points were second, and Andy Greunebaum (CLB, $5.3M) scored 9 points. DCU's Bill Hamid ($4.8M) scored 3 points.
Jordan Harvey (VAN, $4.5M) scored 2 goals on the way to 16 points to set the pace for defenders. Behind him were two Portland players - Pa-Modou Kah ($5.0M), who scored 14 points, and Harrington with his 12. Five D.C. defenders scored, in a manner of speaking. Brandon McDonald ($4.9M) scored 3 points, while Chris Korb ($4.2M), Taylor Kemp ($4.3M), and Alain Rochat ($5.1M) each scored 1. Daniel Woolard's ($3.9M) 3 positive points were outweighed by his 4 negative points, and he finished at -1.
Patrice Bernier (MTL, $7.8M) and Darlington Nagbe (POR, $8.0M) were the joint top scoring midfielders with 13 points. Bernier assisted on one goal, and Nagbe scored one. Brian Mullan (COL, $6.0M) scored 12 points. Dwayne De Rosario ($9.3M) led the United midfielders with 7 points. Perry Kitchen ($5.6M) scored 3 points, Nick DeLeon ($7.4M) and Sainey Nyassi ($5.6M) scored 2 points each, and John Thorrington ($5.3M) scored 1.
Camilo's 25 points led all scorers. Kenny Miller ($7.9M), also from Vancouver, scored 16 himself. Dominic Oduro (CLB, $7.2M) scored 10 points. D.C. United forwards were led by Lionard Pajoy's ($7.6M) 2 points. Rafael ($7.7M) and Casey Townsend ($5.6M) each scored 1 point.
You're probably starting to cycle back in players you had to drop for the byes. Montreal, New England, and Vancouver are on bye this week, so you can look to transfer some of those players out. Colorado has scored the 3rd fewest goals in the West, and they're away to Portland, so Donovan Ricketts is a good idea in goal. In defense, playing away to Dallas is not a great matchup, but Aurelien Collin is still the leading defender despite having not played since June 1st. Darlington Nagbe has scored 25 points in his last 4 matches, and looks like he's found good form. Lastly, Chris Wondolowski (SJ, $10.0M) is expensive, and he hasn't scored more than 2 points in a game since May 8th, but San Jose is playing D.C. United, so now is the time for him to probably break his slump. Similarly useful would be teammates Alan Gordon ($7.2M) and Steven Lenhart ($8.2M.) Happy hunting!
