Fantasy Focus: Sharing the Spoils

Joint leaders at every position highlight the week.

Isaiah J. Downing-USA TODAY Sports

Our overall leader is this round's leader, as In It Toux Wynne It earned 90 points. Landon Donovan (LA, $12.0) wore the armband and led the way with 14 points with an assist. Both Robbie Keane (LA, $11.8) and Obafemi Martins (SEA, $9.7) earned 12 points while scoring two goals.

Positional Leaders

Goalkeepers

Both Sean Johnson (CHI, $5.3) and Luis Robles (NY, $5.9) led the goalkeepers with 10 points, and each earned a clean sheet, though Johnson needed two games for his. Four keepers tied with 9 points -- Bill Hamid (DC, $5.5), Evan Bush (MTL, $4.8), Nick Rimando (RSL, $6.1), and Andy Greunebaum (SKC, $4.0) -- with each earning a clean sheet, except Rimando who saved a penalty.

Defenders

Three defenders tied for first on 10 points -- Bakary Soumare (CHI, $6.7), A.J. DeLaGarza (LA, $6.8), and Matt Besler (SKC, $9.3) -- with each earning a clean sheet. Five United defenders scored, as Taylor Kemp ($4.9) and Chris Korb ($5.6) led with 8 points, while each of Steve Birnbaum ($5.4), Bobby Boswell ($8.8), and Sean Franklin ($7.4) scored 7 points.

Midfielders

Portland's Rodney Wallace ($8.2) and Vancouver's Sebastian Fernandez ($6.5) both scored twice for 13 points and the joint scoring lead among midfielders and all players. Mauro Rosales (VAN, $7.3) and Marcelo Sarvas (LA, $7.1) both tallied two assists and 11 points. D.C.'s midfield was led by Luis Silva ($6.9) with 9 points, while Davy Arnaud ($6.3) and Nick DeLeon ($6.6) scored 4 points, Chris Pontius ($7.7) scored 3, and Lewis Neal ($5.3) scored 1.

Forwards

Robbie Keane and Obafemi Martins's 12 points led all the forwards. Thierry Henry (NY, $10.9) and Gaston Fernandez (POR, $6.8) each scored 8 points, with Henry scoring a goal and Fernandez assisting one. For DCU, Fabian Espindola ($8.4) scored 2 points, and Eddie Johnson ($9.3) scored 1.

Looking Ahead

Toronto, Houston, and San Jose each play twice, while everyone else plays once. Games begin on Wednesday. Tyler Deric (HOU, $4.4) has allowed one goal over his last three matches, and he's @ Toronto and vs. DCU. I like Lawrence Olum (SKC, $5.7) as a good bet for a clean sheet in defense at home against Chicago. Brad Davis (HOU, $10.5) is pretty much a must in midfield with his two games, and keep riding the Obafemi Martins train as Seattle is at home against Vancouver.

Everyone's Adding: G - Tyler Deric (+143), D - Nick Hagglund (TOR, $5.5, +263), M - Giles Barnes (HOU, $7.3, +203), F - Chris Wondolowski (SJ, $9.5, +141)

Everyone's Dropping: G - Sean Johnson (-188), D - Dan Gargan (LA, $7.2, -178), M - Jeff Larentowicz (CHI, $7.0, -281), F - Quincy Amarikwa (CHI, $6.5, -169)
