Fantasy Focus: Landon the Free

Sorry, Sounders.

Joe Nicholson-USA TODAY Sports

With a total of 77 points, Striker's Squad led the league this week. Drew Moor (COL, $8.3) scored a goal and earned a clean sheet for 14 points to lead the team. Javier Morales (RSL, $11.2) contributed two assists and 11 points, and each of Pedro Morales (VAN, $9.0) and Dom Dwyer (SKC, $8.6) scored 10 points, Morales with a goal and Dwyer with an assist and the armband. In It Toux Wynne It still leads overall.

Positional Leaders

D.C. United were off this week, so this is going to go quickly.

Goalkeepers

Evan Bush (MTL, $4.8) scored 9 points in two games to lead the goalkeepers. Just behind him was Jaime Penedo (LA, $5.5) with 8 points and a clean sheet, followed by Clint Irwin (COL, $4.8) with a clean sheet and 7 points.

Defenders

Drew Moor's 14 points led the defenders. The duo of Hassoun Camara (MTL, $6.9) and Anthony Soares (NE, $8.4) each scored a goal and 10 points, though Camara did it in two games.

Midfielders

Landon Donovan (LA $10.8) scored a goal and assisted two more on the way to 15 points for the overall scoring lead. On his heels was Yannick Djalo (SJ, $7.7) with his own goal and two assists and 14 points. Javier Morales's 11 points were good for third.

Forwards

Chris Wondolowski (SJ, $9.3) scored a goal and an assist on the way to 12 points and the lead among forwards. RSL's Olmes Garcia ($6.7) and Wondo's teammate Atiba Harris ($6.4) each scored 11 points, Garcia with two goals, and Harris with a goal and an assist.

Looking Ahead

Every team plays this week, and seven of them play twice -- DCU, TOR, NE, COL, CHI, RSL, NY. Games start Wednesday night. With so many teams on doubles, it's a good time to load up on two-game players. I actually like Bill Hamid (DCU, $5.0) in goal with games vs. TOR and @ HOU. At the back, while I don't usually recommend a goalkeeper and defender from the same team in this space, Steven Birnbaum (DCU, $4.6) is too inexpensive to not use this week. Dillon Powers (COL, $8.2) is your man in midfield, @NE and vs. RSL. Among forwards go with Jermain Defoe (TOR, $11.3), because if he doesn't score against DCU, he probably will @MTL.

Everyone's Adding: G - Sean Johnson (CHI, $5.0, +247), D - Bobby Boswell (DCU, $8.6, +451), M - Dillon Powers (+564), F - Bradley Wright-Phillips (NY, $8.6, +686)

Everyone's Dropping: G - Troy Perkins (MTL, $4.9, -297), D - Seth Sinovic (SKC, $8.3, -348), M - Lloyd Sam (NY, $7.0, -454), F - Jack McInerney (MTL, $7.5, -412)
