That’s a lot of points

MLS: Philadelphia Union at Atlanta United FC Adam Hagy-USA TODAY Sports

Nobody in the league could beat Wang, who scored 176 points this round:

Captaining the leading scorer for the round is generally a good move. MILLERtime When WYNNE’n’s overall lead took a hit this week, and it now stands at 24 points.

Positional Leaders

Goalkeepers

Nick Rimando (RSL, $6.8) led all goalkeepers this week with 13 points on the strength of a clean sheet over two games. Behind him were David Bingham (LAG, $7.5) had 10 points over two games, and Andre Blake (PHI, $8.1) scored 9 over his two.

Defenders

Ryan Hollingshead (DAL, $4.5) led the defenders with 20 points on a goal and two assists in two games. RSL’s Justen Glad ($8.0) and NYC’s Andre Tinnerholm each scored 15 points to round out the top three, with Glad earning a clean sheet in two games, and Tinnerholm pairing a clean sheet and an assist in his one match.

Midfielders

Aleksandar Katai (CHI, $8.5) tallied a goal and an assist over two games for 19 points and the midfield lead. Trailing him were Miguel Almiron (ATL, $14.6), with an assist and 18 points over two matches, and Teal Bunbury (NE, $10.2), with two goals, an assist, and 17 points.

Forwards

Josef Martinez (ATL, $9.7) led all forwards and all players with four goals over two games and 29 points. Well off the pace were Zlatan Ibrahimovic (LAG, $8.2), with two goals over two matches on the way to 16 points, and Alan Gordon (CHI, $4.5), somehow, with a goal in each of his two matches for 14 points.

Looking Ahead

Minnesota’s on bye, and everyone else plays once. I like Joe Willis (HOU, $5.1) in goal at home against Colorado, who has just one point in five road games this year. In defense, Ryan Hollingshead continues to be a good, cheap option, at home this round against Montreal. In midfield, I like Romain Alessandrini (LAG, $9.2) at home against an RSL team that’s awful on the road, and go with Diego Rossi (LA, $10.0) at forward at San Jose
