Ignacio Piatti (MTL, $10.8) and Lee Nguyen (NE, $11.8) each notched a goal and an assist for 14 and 11 points respectively. !BL4CKnRED-2014Champ expanded their overall lead to 21 points, and became the first team to cross the 1000 point plateau this season.

Ken Tribbett (PHI, $6.2) went from not playing since round 5 to playing twice in round 12, scoring 15 points on a goal and an assist, leading all defenders. D.C.'s Taylor Kemp ($8.0) notched a clean sheet and an assist for 11 points, which was equaled by DaMarcus Beasley (HOU, $7.2), who scored a goal of his own. The rest of United's defense featured Bobby Boswell ($8.2) and Kofi Opare ($5.5) with 8 points, and Sean Franklin ($8.2) with 7.

Eight teams are on bye in the final round before the Copa America break -- Chicago, Colorado, Montreal, New England, the Red Bulls, Orlando, Toronto, and Vancouver. Everyone else plays once. Go with Chris Seitz (DAL, $4.9) in goal at home against Houston, and Keegan Rosenberry (PHI, $5.9) in defense at home against Columbus. Diego Valeri (POR, $10.8) is a must in your midfield at home against San Jose, and I like Joao Plata (RSL, $9.5) as a forward at NYCFC.
