Fantasy Focus: New Jersey is Red

The Red Bulls put up points in New York City proper

Andy Marlin-USA TODAY Sports

This round's leader was Birdbomb SC, who put up 98 points. Will Johnson (TOR, $8.3) led the way with 15 points with one goal scored, while teammate and captain Sebastian Giovinco (TOR, $12.7) scored 14 points in two games. Both Axel Sjoberg (COL, $5.9) and Darlington Nagbe (POR, $9.3) scored 13 points, with Sjoberg pairing a goal with a clean sheet, and Nagbe scoring a goal. !BL4CKnRED-2014Champ's lead shrank to just 8 points.

Positional Leaders

Goalkeepers

Luis Robles (NYR, $6.0) led his position with two clean sheets and 15 points. Sean Johnson (CHI, $5.6) played in his first two games of the season and took home 12 points, while Clint Irwin (TOR, $5.6) earned a clean sheet and 11 points. Travis Worra ($4.0) scored 5 points for DCU.

Defenders

Red Bulls center backs Aurelien Collin ($8.1) and Chris Duvall ($6.6) scored 16 and 14 points respectively, with two clean sheets apiece. Axel Sjoberg's 13 points were matched by Rodrigo Ramos (CHI, $6.1) with one clean sheet, and Connor Lade (NYR, $6.3) with two. For United, Taylor Kemp ($7.8) tallied 3 points, while each of Steve Birnbaum ($7.7), Bobby Boswell ($8.1), and Sean Franklin ($8.1) scored 2.

Midfielders

Dax McCarty (NYR, $9.2) and teammate Felipe Martins ($8.6) led the midfielders with 20 and 18 points respectively. McCarty somehow scored two goals, and Felipe had an assist. Will Johnson's 15 points were good for third. United's midfield was led by Marcelo Sarvas ($7.1) with 4 points, followed by each of Nick DeLeon ($6.4), Lamar Neagle ($7.8), and Patrick Nyarko ($7.3) with 3, and both Julian Büscher ($5.5) and Jared Jeffrey ($5.5) had 1.

Forwards

Bradley Wright-Phillips (NYR, $10.9) scored 21 points with two goals and two assists to complete the Red Bulls' position-leading sweep. Tesho Akindele (DAL, $7.4) PUT IT IN YOUR GOAAAAL twice for 14 points, while Cyle Larin (ORL, $9.3) did the same for 13 points. Alvaro Saborio ($7.8) led the DCU forwards with 3 points, tailed by Luciano Acosta ($8.6) with 2 points, and Fabian Espindola ($10.1) with 1.

Looking Ahead

Orlando and Philadelphia play twice, and everyone else plays once. The first game is Wednesday night. Be wary of loading up on two-game players, because there aren't that many high scorers to be had here. Try on Jake Gleeson (POR, $4.4) in goal @ Chicago, who are scoring less than a goal a game. In defense, Axel Sjoberg is your man in defense at home against Philly. I do advocate Orlando teammates, midfielder Kaka ($11.0) and forward Cyle Larin in their games vs. Philly and @ NYC.
