Backing him up was Matt Hedges (DAL, $5.4) with a clean sheet, a goal, and 14 points, as well as Dominic Oduro (CLB, $7.0M) with a goal, an assist, and 11 points. cvIMPACT is back in the lead overall.

Positional Leaders

D.C.'s Bill Hamid ($4.8M) scored 4 points.

Three players scored for United in defense -- Daniel Woolard ($3.8M) with 3 points, Chris Korb ($3.9M) with 2, and Dennis Iapichino ($4.3M) scored 1.

Midfielders

United saw Conor Doyle ($6.1M) score 2 points and Michael Seaton ($5.3M) score 1.

Looking Ahead

Chivas plays twice, and everyone else plays once in the final round of the regular season. The first game of the week is Wednesday. RSL and Portland play Chivas, Houston plays DCU, and Montreal plays Toronto, so you have quite a bit to choose from in terms of good matchups. The best of that bunch are Nick Rimando (RSL $6.3M) in goal because he's at home, Bobby Boswell (HOU, $5.7M) in defense because lol and DCU, Will Johnson (POR, $8.2M) in midfield, and Alvaro Saborio (RSL, $9.7M) at forward.

After this week, the floodgates open. We get unlimited transfers to prepare for the wildcard playoff round, so think about making your moves early before everyone starts buying and selling, so you get in while the selling prices go down and the buying prices go up. Also note that we get 10 transfers after the wildcard round.
