Fantasy Focus: Straight as Lodeiro

Colorado was sleepless

MLS: Colorado Rapids at Seattle Sounders FC Joe Nicholson-USA TODAY Sports

With a score of 148 points, Fan of ManU in US led the league this round.

Positional Leaders


It was tight at the top, with David Bingham (LAG, $5.3) posting a clean sheet and 10 points to lead the position, followed by Bill Hamid (DCU, $8.1) with a clean sheet of his own and 9 points. Sean Johnson (NYC, $6.2) also had 9 points.


Ronald Matarrita (NYC, $4.7) led the defenders with a goal and a clean sheet for 13 points. Behind him was the pair of Mark McKenzie (PHI, $6.7) and Tim Parker (NYR, $9.4), who each had a clean sheet and 12 points. For D.C., Frederic Brillant ($5.5) led with 10 points, followed by Joseph Mora ($6.3) with 8, Steven Birnbaum ($8.3) with 7, and Oneil Fisher ($6.6) with 1.


Seattle’s Nicolas Lodeiro ($14.3) led all midfielders and all players with 23 points on the strength of a goal and two assists. Right on his tail was Luciano Acosta (DCU, $12.0) with three assists and a goal for 21 points, and further behind was Victor Rodriguez (SEA, $5.7), who scored 15 points on a goal and an assist. The remaining United midfielders were Paul Arriola ($8.0) with 14 points, Yamil Asad ($9.4) with 10, Russell Canouse ($7.9) and Junior Moreno ($6.7) with 5 each, and Ulises Segura ($5.0) with 1.


D.C.’s Wayne Rooney ($12.3) led the forwards with two goals, an assist, and 16 points, while Zlatan Ibrahimovic (LAG, $13.6) had a brace and 15 points. Angelo Rodriguez (MIN, $7.1) rounded out the top three with 12 points on two goals of his own. The other scoring DCU forward was Darren Mattocks ($4.1) with 1 point.

Looking Ahead

NYCFC is on bye, and everyone else plays once. I’m liking Jesse Gonzalez (DAL, $4.9) in goal at home against Orlando, and Nouha Tolo (SEA, $6.2) as a budget defensive play at home against Houston. I like Victor Vazquez (TOR, $8.9) in the midfield at home against Vancouver, and his teammate Sebastian Giovinco ($14.0) at forward, with his six goals in his last six games.
