Fantasy Focus: Joao. Such goals. Much points. Many skill.

Kelvin Kuo-USA TODAY Sports

In his third game back from injury, he finally hits his stride.

It was not a big scoring week around the league. DCFC led with 73 points. Graham Zusi (SKC, $10.8) wore the armband and tallied an assist on the way to 20 points. Joao Plata (RSL, $7.2) scored two goals and 14 points, while Will Bruin (HOU, $8.4) scored a goal and 11 points. In It Toux Wynne It scored just 43 points but still leads overall.

Positional Leaders


Luis Robles (NY, $6.0) saved a penalty, earned a clean sheet, and didn't have to do much else on his way to 13 points and the goalkeeping lead. Three players tied for second with 8 points -- Clint Irwin (COL, $4.9), Eric Kronberg (SKC, $5.0) and Zac MacMath (PHI, $5.4). Irwin and Kronberg had clean sheets, and MacMath saved his third penalty of the season. Bill Hamid (DCU, $4.7) earned 2 points.


Chad Marshall (SEA, $8.6) scored a goal and 11 points to lead his position. Colorado's Marc Burch ($6.4) tallied a clean sheet and an assist for 10 points and second among defenders, while Futty Danso (POR, $8.2) scored a goal and 9 points to round out the top three. For D.C., Bobby Boswell ($8.2) led with 3 points, while Christian Fernandez ($6.5) scored 2, and both Chris Korb ($5.8) and Jeff Parke ($6.7) scored 1.


Houston's Giles Barnes ($7.3) celebrated Derby County's promotion playoff berth by scoring twice for 12 points. Pedro Morales (VAN, $8.1) scored his own brace for 11 points, and both Diego Valeri (POR, $9.9) and Graham Zusi (SKC, $10.8) tied for third with 10 points, Valeri with 2 assists and Zusi with 1. DCU midfielders were led by Davy Arnaud's ($6.8) goal-that-wasn't-a-golazo-because-of-the-deflection-it-took-so-calm-down and 7 points, followed by Perry Kitchen ($6.3) with 6 points, Chris Rolfe ($6.9) and Nick DeLeon ($6.8) with 2 points, and Lewis Neal ($5.3), Luis Silva ($7.1), and Alex Caskey ($5.7) with 1 point.


Joao Plata's 14 points led all forwards and all players. Chris Wondolowski (SJ, $9.5) scored two goals and 12 points to come in second, while Will Bruin's 11 points were matched by Alvaro Saborio (RSL, $10.5) with a goal and an assist. For United, Conor Doyle ($6.3) and Fabian Espindola ($8.4) each scored 2 points.

Looking Ahead

Toronto's the only team on bye, while six teams -- Houston, Columbus, Seattle, Dallas, San Jose and Colorado -- play twice. The trio of midweek games is on Wednesday, so the deadline is moving up. Obviously you'll want to get the most out of the week by playing the guys on doubles. I like Clint Irwin in goal (30 points) at San Jose and home for Chivas. In defense, even if Colorado don't earn any clean sheets, you could do worse than Drew Moor ($7.1, 43 points). Among midfielders, Seattle is playing FC Dallas and at New England, so if Clint Dempsey's ($10.9) too pricey, Lamar Neagle ($7.8, 49 points will do. At forward, Will Bruin has scored in two straight matches, and Houston has Columbus and Real Salt Lake both at home.

Everyone's Adding: G - Irwin (+336), D - Moor (+552), M - Neagle (+846), F - Obafemi Martins (SEA, $9.8, 55 points, +499)

Everyone's Dropping: G - Chris Seitz (DAL, $5.4, 39 points, -199), D - Kellyn Acosta (DAL, $5.5, 20 points, -313), M - Mauro Diaz (DAL, $8.3, 55 points, -1300), F - Darren Mattocks (VAN, $7.6, 40 points, -286)
