Fantasy Focus: Collin Card

Jasen Vinlove-USA TODAY Sports

The price is down, but the points are up

The leader in points this round is Team USA, who amassed 84 points, primarily with Philadelphia Union players who had two matches, and made up the top four scorers on the team. Leading was captain Zac MacMath ($5.5), who scored 24 points while not saving a penalty but notching a clean sheet. Amobi Okugo ($9.1) was second with 11 points on the strength of his own clean sheet. Clean sheet earning Raymon Gaddis ($7.1) and also Maurice Edu ($9.3) earned 9 points each. The overall leader is still name-changing In It Toux Wynne It.

Positional Leaders

Goalkeepers

MacMath's 12 points led all goalkeepers. Bobby Shuttleworth (NE, $5.0) was just behind him with 10 points after saving a penalty, and Nick Rimando's (RSL, $6.2) clean sheet helped him to 8 points. DCU's Andrew Dykstra ($4.0) earned 3 points.

Defenders

Aurelien Collin (SKC, $9.9) went down in price while inactive last round, but he led all scorers with 14 points this week, scoring a goal and earning a clean sheet. Dallas' Matt Hedges ($8.6) was just behind him with a goal and an assist for 13 points, while Okugo's 11 points was good for third. Sean Franklin ($7.7) was the leading United defender with 5 points, ahead of teammates Jeff Parke ($6.7) and Christian Fernandez ($6.4) with 4 points each, and Bobby Boswell ($8.0) with 3 points.

Midfielders

New Jersey's Eric Alexander ($6.8) contributed two assists and 10 points to lead his position. Maurice Edu's 9 points tied with Seattle teammates Clint Dempsey ($10.4), with two assists, and Lamar Neagle ($7.4) with a goal. D.C.'s midfield was led by Nick DeLeon ($6.8) with an assist and 6 points, followed by Perry Kitchen ($6.3) with 3 points, the trio of Chris Rolfe ($6.9), Davy Arnaud ($6.9), and Lewis Neal ($5.3) with 2 points, and Alex Caskey ($5.8) with 1 point.

Forwards

Kansas City's Dom Dwyer ($8.0) led all forwards with 12 points on the strength of 2 goals. Darren Mattocks (VAN, $7.6) scored and added an assist for 10 points, and Aaron Wheeler (PHI, $6.0) is now a defender but he scored 8 points over two games. For United, Javier Espindola ($8.2) led with 8 points, while Eddie Johnson ($9.5) scored 2, and Conor Doyle ($6.3) scored 1.

Looking Ahead

Chicago, Los Angeles, and Toronto are all on bye, while New York and Houston play twice. The first game of the week is Wednesday, April 23rd, so get your changes in. New York and Houston play each other in Jersey for their extra game, and I like Houston's second game (vs. Portland) more than I do New York's (@ Columbus). I like Eric Kronberg (SKC, $5.0, 27 points) in goal this week, he of two clean sheets in a row and three out of four, and he's away at New England. In the back, David Horst (HOU, $6.0, 23 points) is back from his suspension and scored 8 points this week. In midfield, Lloyd Sam (NY, $7.0, 36 points), even if he wasn't playing twice, is the guy to get. At forward, if you have something against Chivas' Erick Torres, Dom Dwyer's (31 points) four goals have come in his last four games.

Everyone's Adding: G - Tally Hall (HOU, $6.0, 32 points, +432), D - Horst (+502), M - Sam (+1597), F - Will Bruin (HOU, $8.4, 29 points, +392)

Everyone's Dropping: G - MacMath (44 points, -347), D - Kofi Sarkodie (HOU, $6.6, 24 points, -678), M - Thomas McNamara (CHV, $4.9, 21 points, -1071), F - Quincy Amarikwa (CHI, $6.6, 37 points, -440)
