Fantasy Focus: Fits to Adi

It was a week of slim pickings.

Demonbarber12’s 96 points led the league this round. Fanendo Adi (POR, $9.8) led the team with an armband-aided 26 points on the strength of two goals. He was supported by teammates Diego Valeri ($10.7), with an assist and 10 points, and Sebastian Blanco ($8.8) with an assist of his own and 8 points. !BL4CKnRED still leads overall.

Positional Leaders

Goalkeepers

Both Matt Lampson (CHI, $4.7) and Jake Gleeson (POR, $5.6) posted a clean sheet and tied for the positional lead with 8 points. Tim Melia (SKC, $5.6) rounded out the top three with 5 points.

Defenders

Joao Meira (CHI, $6.2) posted a clean sheet and 11 points, leading the position. A trio of defenders tied with 9 points, each of them with a clean sheet to his name — Brandon Vincent (CHI, $5.2), and Portland’s Roy Miller ($5.1) and Amobi Okugo ($4.8).

Midfielders

Diego Valeri’s 11 points led the position, while Gerso Fernandes (SKC, $8.3) scored a goal and 8 points to tie with Sebastian Blanco for second.

Forwards

Fanendo Adi led all forwards and all players with his 13 points. Chicago teammates David Accam ($10.0) and Nemanja Nikolic ($10.3) tied for second with 8 points, as Accam tallied an assist while Nikolic scored a goal.

Looking Ahead

Every team plays once this week, so you’ve got your full selection of players. Until D.C. United’s goal scoring ticks up (10 goals in 14 matches), it’s going to make sense to play the opposing goalkeeper, which this week is Alex Bono (TOR, $5.0). In defense Zarek Valentin (POR, $4.7) is a good budget play with two consecutive clean sheets and 28 points over the last three rounds, so use him on the road against low-scoring Colorado. Columbus owns the worst defense (26 goals allowed) in the East, so Miguel Almiron (ATL, $9.6) is a great option at home against the Crew, assuming he’s not on the bench this week. At forward, look at Christian Ramirez (MIN, $8.0). He has three goals over his last five matches, and this round he’s at MLS’s worst defense (35 goals allowed), Real Salt Lake.
