Fantasy Focus: Rolling With Robbie

Despite the late game collapse, Robbie Keane leads again


Currently 115th in the league, Beta Theta Pirate led all teams with 73 points. Robbie Keane's (LA, $10.6M) captaincy, along with 2 assists and a shocking 7 attacking bonus points, helped him on the way to 32 points. Kansas City's Claudio Bieler ($8.6M) and San Jose's Shea Salinas ($7.7M) both scored a goal and added an assist for 12 points and 11 points respectively. SGV Galaxy jumped back into 1st with a 66-point round.

Positional Leaders


Luis Robles (NY, $5.5M) and Brad Knighton (VAN, $5.0) each kept clean sheets and earned 9 points. RSL's Nick Rimando ($6.3M) was close behind with 8 points. For D.C. United, Bill Hamid ($4.8M) allegedly conceded a penalty kick and earned just 2 points.


Philadelphia's Sheanon Williams ($4.9M) assisted on 2 goals and scored 11 points. Both Jamison Olave (NY, $5.8M) and Aaron Maund (RSL, $4.9M) scored 9 points. DCU's Alain Rochat ($5.1) led the way with 4 points. Behind him, Daniel Woolard ($3.9M) scored 3 points, while both Chris Korb and Ethan White (each $4.2M) scored 2.


Colorado's Dillon Powers ($5.7M) and Shea Salinas scored 11 points each. Amobi Okugo (PHI, $7.7M) and Yordany Alvarez (RSL, $5.9M) each scored 9 points. Six D.C. midfielders scored this week. Chris Pontius ($8.1M) and Kyle Porter ($4.8M) tied for the lead with 4 points, while Perry Kitchen ($5.6M), Dwayne De Rosario ($9.3M), John Thorrington ($5.3M) and Sainey Nyassi ($5.6M) all scored 3 points.


Robbie Keane's 16 points led all forwards easily, while there was a three-way tie at 12 points for 2nd between Kei Kamara (SKC, $9.2M), Claudio Bieler, and Daniele Paponi (MTL, $6.6M). Three DCU forwards scored 1 point -- Lionard Pajoy ($7.6M), Casey Townsend ($5.6M), and Carlos Ruiz ($7.8M).

Looking Ahead

Three teams are on bye this round (HOU, NE, POR), and it only covers the matches on Wednesday and Thursday. The following round starts on Saturday, so there won't be much time to make moves.

Sheanon Williams is the man to watch, as he's scored 13, 12, and 11 points the last 3 weeks, and he's only $4.9M. He has some difficult matches coming up (@RSL, @HOU) before what should be an easy one (vs. CHV). DC's offense is still inept, so Seattle's Michael Gspurning ($5.6M, 69 points) is a safe bet. In the midfield, look towards San Jose's Sam Cronin ($6.6M, 76 points), who has scored a goal, an assist, and 19 points in the last 3 matches. Deshorn Brown (COL, $5.9M, 61 points) is a budget forward option, and he's scored 15 points in 3 matches.
