A score of 85 points led this week, as !n It Toux Wynne It crept closer to 2nd place in the table. Benny Feilhaber (SKC, $10.4) wore the armband and scored 18 points over two games with an assist. Bobby Burling (COL, $4.9) scored a goal and 13 points, while the KC duo of Tim Melia ($5.0) and Kevin Ellis ($6.6) each scored 10 points with a clean sheet. Poor Man's Porales is still the overall leader.

Positional Leaders

Goalkeepers

Tim Melia's 10 points led all goalkeepers. Both Evan Bush (MTL, $5.2) and David Ousted (VAN, $5.9) earned a clean sheet and scored 10 points. For United, Bill Hamid ($6.6) scored 5 points.

Defenders

Bobby Burling's 13 points led the defenders. Omar Gonzalez (LA, $10.2) earned a clean sheet on the way to 11 points. Kevin Ellis's 10 points were tied with teammate Matt Besler ($9.7) and also Victor Cabrera (MTL, $6.8), each of whom earned a clean sheet. The D.C. defense was led by Steve Birnbaum ($7.8) with 9 points, followed by Sean Franklin ($8.0) with 4 points, Bobby Boswell ($9.6) with 3, and Taylor Kemp ($7.9) with 2.

Midfielders

Sacha Kljestan (NYR, $10.3) scored one goal and assisted on another on the way to 14 points, leading his position and all players. Adrian Winter (ORL, $6.8) scored two goals and 13 points, while Cristian Techera (VAN, $7.6) tallied a goal and an assist for 12 points. DCU's midfield featured Chris Pontius ($7.0) with 4 points; Markus Halsti ($6.9) with 3; the trio of Nick DeLeon ($6.4), Perry Kitchen ($7.5), and Chris Rolfe ($9.5) with 2, and Michael Farfan ($6.3) with 1.

Forwards

Kei Kamara (CLB, $9.8) scored two goals and 12 points, leading all forwards. David Accam (CHI, $9.2) scored a goal and 8 points, which was equaled by Tesho Akindele (DAL, $8.1), who PUT IT IN YOUR GOALLLLLL! DC's forwards were Fabian Espindola ($10.5) with 2 points (and for whatever reason 0 assists, despite his cross to Birnbaum for the goal), Alvaro Saborio ($9.2) with 2 points of his own, and Jairo "Fuera de Lug" Arrieta ($6.3) with 1 point.

Looking Ahead

Six teams play twice this round -- MTL, NE, NYC, NYR, SJ, and TOR. Everyone else plays once, and games start Wednesday night. Some big names are included in the two-game teams, so it's a good time to load up. Also note that Montreal play twice over three of the next four rounds (round 29, 30, and 32.) In goal, David Bingham (SJ, $5.8) has no clean sheets in his last two games, but he's playing MTL and @NYC, so he's got a good shot at at least one. In defense, try on Chris Tierney (NE, $7.5) against NYR and @MTL. Sebastian Giovinco (TOR, $13.1) looked unaffected by his injury this past weekend, so use him in his games @NYC and against COL. At forward, it's probably Bradley Wright-Phillips ($11.3) @NE and @POR.
