Fantasy Focus: The Drogs of Society

It's nice to get away with punching another player so you can do this the next week

Stephen R. Sylvanie-USA TODAY Sports

With a score of 103 points, Salisbury United SC led the league for the second week running. Didier Drogba (MTL, $10.6) wore the armband and scored 36 points on three goals over two games. Meanwhile, Lee Nguyen (NE, $11.7) scored a goal and 12 points, while Sebastian Giovinco (TOR, $13.5) assisted one goal, and had another assist changed to a goal for 10 points. Poor Man's Porales still leads overall.

Positional Leaders

Goalkeepers

Houston's Tyler Deric ($5.1) earned a clean sheet in two games for 12 points to lead his position. Evan Bush (MTL, $5.5) earned his own clean sheet over two games for 9 points. There was a three-way tie for third at 6 points, as Jon Busch (CHI, $5.0) played twice, Andre Blake (PHI, $5.1) made 10 saves in his one game, and David Bingham (SJ, $5.7) earned a clean sheet in his one match. Bill Hamid ($6.6) scored 3 points for DCU.

Defenders

Three Houston defenders led the way, as Damarcus Beasley ($7.2) earned a clean sheet and an assist on the way to 14 points, while David Horst ($8.4) and Raul Rodriguez ($8.1) scored 11 and 10 points respectively on clean sheets of their own. Victor Bernardez (SJ, $7.8) joined the party with a clean sheet and an assist for 10 points. Taylor Kemp ($7.8) led the United backline with 3 points, while each of Steven Birnbaum ($7.7), Bobby Boswell ($9.6), and Sean Franklin ($8.0) earned 1 point.

Midfielders

Dynamo players led this category too. Brad Davis ($10.7) scored a goal and earned an assist for 16 points, while Giles Barnes ($9.2) did the same for 13 points, and Leonel Miranda ($6.9) scored just a goal for 12 points. Two more players scored 12 points -- Lee Nguyen, and Kaka (ORL, $11.9), the latter of whom assisted on three goals. DCU's midfield featured Nick DeLeon ($6.4) and Chris Pontius ($7.0) with 3 points, Chris Rolfe ($9.6) with 2, and both Markus Halsti ($6.8) and Michael Farfan ($6.3) with 1.

Forwards

Didier Drogba's 18 points leading the forwards and all players in points and unpunished punches. Cyle Larin (ORL, $5.9) was close behind with 17 points on a hat trick, and Will Bruin (HOU, $8.0) scored a goal and added two assists for 16 points. D.C.'s forwards were led by Fabian Espindola ($10.5) with 3 points, while both Jairo Arrieta ($6.3) and Alvaro Saborio ($9.1) had 1 point.

Looking Ahead

Everyone plays once this round, with games starting on Friday. Try on Bobby Shuttleworth (NE, $5.3) in goal at Chicago, and Atiba Harris (DAL, $6.5) is worth a look in defense at home against Houston. Go with midfielder Sacha Kljestan (NYR, $10.5) at home against Columbus, and get Didier Drogba at Orlando while he's relatively inexpensive.
