Fantasy Focus: One Ant Army

Shame about the defense

Andy Marlin-USA TODAY Sports

A score of 94 points lead the round, authored by (~^-^)~umad?~(^-^~). David Villa (NYC, $11.1) wore the armband and scored 24 points on two goals. Sebastian Giovinco (TOR, $12.5) scored 20 points on a hat trick and an assist, and both Donny Toia (MTL, $4.9) and Tim Melia (SKC, $5.0) posted a clean sheet and 9 points. Poor Man's Porales saw overall their lead slip to 120 points.

Positional Leaders

D.C. United was on bye this week


Tim Melia's 9 points were good enough to lead the position. The trio of Tyler Deric (HOU, $4.8), Evan Bush (MTL, $5.0), and Brian Silvestre (PHI, $4.5) each posted a clean sheet and 8 points.


Kevin Ellis (SKC, $6.5) scored a goal and earned a clean sheet on the way to 13 points and the positional lead. Behind him were Donny Toia, Anthony Wallace (NYR, $6.1), and Matt Besler (SKC, $9.6), each of whom scored 9 points -- Wallace with a goal and Besler with a clean sheet.


Sebastian Giovinco's 20 points led all midfielders and all players. Philadelphia teammates Cristian Maidana ($9.2) and Vincent Nogueira ($8.3) scored 14 points each -- Maidana with 3 assists, and Nogueira with 2 goals.


Bradley Wright-Phillips (NYR, $11.4) scored 15 points on 2 goals and 1 assist to lead all forwards. David Villa's 12 points were matched by Dominic Oduro (MTL, $7.1), who scored 2 goals.

Looking Ahead

Chicago and Columbus play each other twice, and everyone else plays once. The best options for two gamers are Kei Kamara (CLB, $9.4), Ethan Finlay (CLB, $8.8), and Harry Shipp (CHI, $8.1). Otherwise, use Brian Rowe (LA, $4.6) in goal vs. San Jose, and Amadou Dia (SKC, $4.5) on the cheap at home vs. Montreal. In Midfield, Benny Feilhaber (SKC, $10.2) is your non-Giovinco man, and at forward I like Joao Plata (RSL, $9.3) at home against Houston.
