Fantasy Focus: Fire Ant

That's a lot of points.

Dan Hamilton-USA TODAY Sports

It was a big scoring week, and Attakora Diaspora rose to the top with a total of 129 points. Sebastian Giovinco (TOR, $12.9) wore the armband and scored 56 points with three goals and an assist over two games. The duo of Kei Kamara (CLB, $9.6) and Benny Feilhaber (SKC, $10.7) scored 12 points each, with Kamara scoring twice and Feilhaber scoring once and adding an assist. Poor Man's Porales still leads overall.

Positional Leaders

Goalkeepers

Tally Hall (ORL, $5.7) led all goalkeepers with 10 points on a clean sheet over two games. Luis Robles (NYR, $5.6) and DCU's Bill Hamid ($6.6) each earned a clean sheet and 9 points.

Defenders

Kemar Lawrence (NYR, $6.6) earned a clean sheet and tallied an assist over two games for 15 points and the lead among all defenders. Jordan Harvey (VAN, $7.2) scored 14 points with two assists and a clean sheet. Both Luke Boden (ORL, $5.3) and Pa-Modou Kah (VAN, $7.0) scored 13 points, with each scoring a goal and adding a clean sheet. For United, Bobby Boswell ($9.6) and Chris Korb ($5.7) scored 8 points, and both Steve Birnbaum ($7.8) and Taylor Kemp ($8.0) scored 7 points.

Midfielders

Sebastian Giovinco's 28 points led all players, and were 13 more points than the next highest scorer. Vancouver's Cristian Techera ($7.4) scored two goals and 13 points. Four players scored 12 points -- Felipe Martins (NYR, $8.5), Sacha Kljestan (NYR, $9.6), Benny Feilhaber, and Collen Warner (TOR, $6.6) -- Martins and Warner each scored once, and Kljestan had an assist. The DCU midfield featured Chris Rolfe ($9.5) with 8 points, Davy Arnaud ($6.5) and Perry Kitchen ($7.5) with 3 points, and Nick DeLeon ($6.5) and Chris Pontius ($7.0) with 1 point.

Forwards

Kei Kamara's 12 points were good enough to share the forward lead with Robbie Keane (LA, $11.7), who scored a goal and added an assist. Mike Grella (NYR, $6.2) scored 10 points with 2 assists. Jairo Arrieta ($6.3) led the D.C. forwards with 6 points, followed by Alvaro Saborio ($9.4) with 2 points and Conor Doyle ($5.2) with 1.

Looking Ahead

Columbus and Montreal are on bye, and everyone else plays once. Keep an eye on next week when Columbus, NYC, San Jose and Kansas City all play twice. I like David Bingham (SJ, $5.5) in goal at home against Colorado, and Chris Tierney (NE, $7.3) in defense at home against Houston. Get Sebastian Lletget (LA, $6.6) in your midfield at Dallas, and since Robbie Keane's back in the groove, play him at forward.
