Fantasy Focus: Check yourself before Borek yourself

He’s been feast or famine, and this week was a feast

MLS: Vancouver Whitecaps at Philadelphia Union Derik Hamilton-USA TODAY Sports

Our overall leader, MILLERtime When WYNNE’n, also led the league this round with 101 points:

It’s quite a feat to do this despite high-scoring David Villa and Graham Zusi scoring two points combined. The overall lead is now up to 72 points.

Positional Leaders

Goalkeepers

NJ’s Luis Robles ($7.2) posted a clean sheet and 11 points on the way to a position-leading 11 points. Behind him, Evan Bush (MTL, $8.6) and Andre Blake (PHI, $8.1) both put up a clean sheet and 7 points.

Defenders

LA’s Laurent Ciman ($10.3) scored a goal and kept a clean sheet on the way to 16 points and the lead among defenders. On his heels were Jersey teammates Kemar Lawrence ($8.2) and Aaron Long ($8.8), who both duplicated Ciman’s feat for 15 and 14 points, respectively.

Midfielders

Borek Dockal (PHI, $10.2) scored twice on the way to 17 points, leading all midfielders and all players. Meanwhile, SKC’s Daniel Salloi ($11.0) added a goal to two assists on the way to 15 points, just ahead of Ilsinho (PHI, $6.8), who paired a goal and an assist for 14 points.

Forwards

Jo Inge Berget (NYC, $4.6) and Mauro Manotas (HOU, $7.4) both scored two goals and 13 points while tying for the lead among forwards. Clint Dempsey (SEA, $5.3) rounded out the top three with a goal and 9 points.

Looking Ahead

I’m staying with Tyler Miller (LA, $6.6) in goal against abysmal-on-the-road Philadelphia, and I like Antonio Delamea (NE, $4.0) as a super cheap value play in defense at home against DCU. Columbus duo Federico Higuain ($10.5) and Gyasi Zardes ($9.1) could be in for big things at home against RSL, so play them in the midfield and at forward, respectively.
