Didier pays dividends

Jean-Yves Ahern-USA TODAY Sports

While extending the overall lead to 217 points, Poor Man's Porales led this round with 80 points. The New England duo of Lee Nguyen ($11.4) and Chris Tierney ($7.5) scored 16 points each, with Nguyen tallying 3 assists, and Tierney contributing a goal and a clean sheet. Obafemi Martins (SEA, $11.8) rounded out the top scorers with an armband-aided 14 points on the strength of a goal.

Positional Leaders

(D.C. United were on a bye)

Goalkeepers

Jesse Gonzalez (DAL, $4.2) led his position with 8 points and a clean sheet. Bobby Shuttleworth (NE, $5.4) earned a clean sheet of his own and 7 points, while Tally Hall (ORL, $5.7) rounded out a poor week for goalkeepers with 5 points.

Defenders

Chris Tierney's 16 points were good enough to share the positional lead with Atiba Harris (DAL, $6.3), who scored a goal and earned a clean sheet. Four players tied for third with 9 points -- the FC Dallas trio of Kellyn Acosta ($6.3), Matt Hedges ($9.7), and Zach Loyd ($7.9) joined Andrew Farrell (NE, $8.3) in earning clean sheets, with Acosta adding an assist.

Midfielders

Lee Nguyen's 16 points led his position. Clint Dempsey (SEA, $11.9) combined a goal and an assist to earn 11 points, and Diego Fagundez (NE, $7.4) did the same for 10 points.

Forwards

Didier Drogba (MTL, $10.2) scored a hat trick on the way to 17 points and the overall scoring lead. Three players scored 10 points -- Kennedy Igboananike (CHI, $7.6), David Texeira (DAL, $7.2), and Conor Casey (PHI, $7.0), with Casey scoring two goals, and Igboananike and Texeira scoring one goal with an assist.

Looking Ahead

Colorado and Kansas City play twice this week, and everyone else plays once. Games start on Wednesday night. You want David Ousted (VAN, $5.8) in goal at home against Colorado and their 0.96 goals per game, and Chris Tierney in defense at Toronto. Get Benny Feilhaber (SKC, $10.4) back in the midfield for his two games @Portland and @Orlando, and his teammate Dom Dwyer ($10.4) has three goals and an assist in his last five matches.
