Fantasy Focus: Are you tired of Robbie Keane?

Kelvin Kuo-USA TODAY Sports

It's him again, one of just four players to score in double digits.

With 87 points, n00bius led all teams in scoring this week. Robbie Keane (LA, $11.0M) was the vice captain and (Mauro Diaz?!) notched 2 goals and an assist for 30 points. Both Erick Torres (CHV, $7.4M) and Javier Morales (RSL, $9.3M) scored 12 points - Torres with 2 goals, and Morales with 1 goal and 1 assist. SGV Galaxy's overall lead shrunk by 3 points.

Positional Leaders


Both Luis Robles (NY, $5.9M) and Michael Gspurning ($5.7M) tied for most points among goalkeepers with 9 points, though Robles needed a penalty save to get there. Troy Perkins (MTL, $5.0M) and Jaime Penedo (LA, $4.9M) scored 8 points. D.C.'s Bill Hamid ($4.8M) scored 2 points. For some reason, Joe Willis ($4.9M) also scored 2 points, though I don't know how.


Three players -- LA's Sean Franklin ($5.2M) and Omar Gonzalez ($6.1M), and Seattle's Jhon Kennedy Hurtado ($4.3M) -- earned clean sheets and scored 9 points. United's Daniel Woolard ($4.0M) led the rearguard with 3 points, while each of Chris Korb ($4.0M), Ethan White ($4.2M), Dejan Jakovic ($5.2M), and Dennis Iapachino ($4.3M) scored 2 points. James Riley ($4.5M) scored 1 point. Neither White nor Iapachino actually played, so expect those numbers to disappear.


The aforementioned Javier Morales led the midfielders with his 12 points. Four players -- Adam Moffat (HOU, $7.0M), Gershon Koffie (VAN, $7.7M) and NY teammates Tim Cahill ($7.9M) and Lloyd Sam ($5.8M) -- scored 9 points. For DCU, goalscorer Nick DeLeon ($7.4M) scored 7 points. Dwayne De Rosario ($9.3M) assisted that goal and scored 6 points, while Perry Kitchen ($5.5M) scored 3 points. Lewis Neal ($5.2M), John Thorrington ($5.3M), and Kyle Porter ($4.7M) scored 2 points, while each of Luis Silva ($7.2M), Collin Martin ($5.5M), and Jared Jeffrey ($6.0M) scored 1 point. Kyle Porter did not actually play.


Robbie Keane's 15 points led all forwards, while Erick Torres and Joao Plata (RSL, $6.5M) scored 12 points. For D.C., just Conor Doyle ($6.9M) scored 1 point. For the record, according to all of this, 18 DCU players earned points in one match, which is impossible.

Looking Ahead

Real Salt Lake is the only team on bye this week. Columbus, Houston, Seattle and Chivas each play twice, and each play on Wednesday night. The rest of the teams play once. It's World Cup qualifying time, so big scorers like Federico Higuain, Robbie Keane, Graham Zusi, Amobi Okugo, Landon Donovan and Omar Gonzalez are out, among others. Of the multi-gamers, Seattle's matchups (vs. Chivas & Chicago) are probably the best, so look at guys like Michael Gspurning and Mauro Rosales ($8.7M). Erick Torres is worth a look because, while the Seattle matchup isn't great, he's got DCU at home in his second match. For the single-gamers, if you want to take a cheap gamble, Portland's Milos Kocic (wait, what?) is in line to start at home against Toronto in place of Donovan Ricketts, and he's only $4.6M.  A similar cheap gamble is SKC's Ike Opara ($4.4M), who will likely start in place of Matt Besler.

You've got until 7:15pm EDT Wednesday to get your changes in. Do it.
