A better player than a pun.

MLS: New England Revolution at Vancouver Whitecaps Anne-Marie Sorvin-USA TODAY Sports

Jamestown Hundred FC led the round with a score of 95 points:

It was not a tremendously high-scoring week, so this is a pretty good score, especially considering that substitution shenanigans weren’t used. MILLERtime When WYNNE’n still leads comfortably overall.

Positional Leaders

Goalkeepers

Jesse Gonzalez (DAL, $6.0) kept a clean sheet and saved a penalty in his first match of 2018 on his way to 15 points, leading all goalkeepers. Tim Melia (SKC, $8.8) duplicated Gonzalez’s feats for 14 points, while Andre Blake (PHI, $7.6) merely kept a clean sheet for 10 points. D.C.’s David Ousted ($4.8) scored 4 points.

Defenders

A trio of clean sheet-keeping defenders scored 11 points, splitting the positional lead — Michael Ciani (LA, $5.3), Matt Besler (SKC, $9.7), and Keegan Rosenberry (PHI, $8.4). The United defense was led by Joseph Mora ($4.5) with 5 points, followed by Frederic Brillant ($6.7) with 4, Steve Birnbaum ($6.5) with 3, and both Nick DeLeon ($6.9) and Oneil Fisher ($4.0) with 1.

Midfielders

Vancouver’s Cristian Techera ($6.9) scored a hat trick on the way to 19 points, leading the midfielders and all players. Behind him was Sebastian Blanco (POR, $9.5), who scored two goals and 13 points, and Romain Alessandrini (LA, $8.7), who scored a goal and 11 points. The DCU trio of Paul Arriola ($6.3), Zoltan Stieber ($8.1) and Yamil Asad ($8.2) led the midfield with 5 points each, followed by Luciano Acosta ($8.1) with 2 points, and Junior Moreno ($5.6) with 1.

Forwards

Samuel Armenteros (POR, $4.5) led all forwards with 13 points on two goals and one ritual sacrifice of Colorado defender Danny Wilson:

Meanwhile, Houston’s Romell Quioto ($9.0) had an assist on the way to 10 points, and Maxi Urruti (DAL, $9.1) scored a goal and 9 points. Darren Mattocks ($7.0) was the lone United forward to score, with 7 points.

Looking Ahead

It’s another big double-game week, with eight teams playing twice: New England, Philadelphia, RSL, the Galaxy, Atlanta, Chicago, Houston, and Dallas. Load up on guys who are playing twice and hope they all play both games. In goal, I like Richard Sanchez ($6.5) at Philly and at home against San Jose, and in defense go with Alejandro Fuenmayor ($7.3) at both RSL and Montreal. Obviously captain Miguel Almiron (ATL, $14.8) in the midfield at New England and at home against Philly, and back Alberth Elis (HOU, $11.3) to add to his five goals and one assist over his last six matches.
