Positional Leaders

Goalkeepers

Alex Bono (TOR, $4.9) led the goalkeepers with a clean sheet and 10 points. A trio of goalkeepers — Brian Rowe (LA, $5.5), Joe Bendik (ORL, $5.2), and Andre Blake (PHI, $5.5) tied with 9 points, with each earning a clean sheet. DCU’s Bill Hamid ($5.5) scored 5 points.

Defenders

Florian Jungwirth (SJ, $5.9) notched a goal and a clean sheet on the way to 17 points, leading all defenders and all players. Joevin Jones’s 12 points were good enough for second. A trio of defenders tied for third with 11 points — Daniel Steres (LA, $6.2), who had a clean sheet; Kemar Lawrence (NYR, $5.5), who scored a goal; and Victor Bernardez (SJ, $5.4) who had a clean sheet. For United, Sean Franklin ($5.2) led with 6 points, followed by Bobby Boswell ($5.4) with 4, Kofi Opare ($4.4) with 3, Taylor Kemp ($5.6) with 2, and Chris Odoi-Atsem ($4.5) with 1.

Midfielders

Jack Harrison’s (NY, $7.9) two goals and 14 points were good enough to tie Nicolas Lodeiro for the midfield lead. Osvaldo Alonso (SEA, $9.8) scored a goal and 13 points. For D.C., Luciano Acosta ($8.9) scored 12 points; followed by Sebastien Le Toux ($6.5) with 7; each of Jared Jeffrey ($5.4), Lamar Neagle ($7.5), and Lloyd Sam ($8.4) with 4, Ian Harkes ($5.8) with 3, and Marcelo Sarvas ($7.0) with 1.

Forwards

Juan Agudelo (NE, $8.5) led the forwards with 15 points on two goals. Portland’s Fanendo Adi ($9.8) had a goal and an assist for 13 points, and Jozy Altidore’s 12 points were good for third. For D.C., Patrick Mullins ($8.4) dropped in with 1 point.

Looking Ahead

Four teams play twice this round: ORL, TOR, SKC, and NYR, so it’s a good time to load up on two gamers. In goal, Tim Melia (SKC, $5.8) is a good idea in goal at home against the Red Bulls and away to Minnesota, while Erik Zavaleta (TOR, $5.1) should be in your defense at home against Orlando and at Seattle. In midfield, go with Victor Vazquez (TOR, $8.8), and at forward, pair Sebastian Giovinco with Dom Dwyer (SKC, $8.9).
