Fantasy Focus: Almirowned

Atlanta’s attack, y’all.

MLS: Atlanta United FC at San Jose Earthquakes John Hefti-USA TODAY Sports

With a blistering 145 points, DeadCity FC killed everyone, leading the league this round.

That’s some solid midfield production. Ruidiaz was just a flop.

Positional Leaders

Goalkeepers

Brad Guzan (ATL, $5.9) set the pace with 13 points on the strength of a clean sheet. Behind him were John McCarthy (PHI, $5.0), who had a clean sheet and 11 points, and Luis Robles (NYR, $8.9), who did the same for 10 points.

Defenders

LAFC’s Walker Zimmerman ($7.0) led all defenders with a nuclear two goals and one clean sheet for 20 points in just one game. Just behind him, Auston Trusty (PHI, $8.5) had two clean sheets and an assist for 19 points, and Nick Lima (SJ, $4.8) had a goal and an assist for 13 points.

Midfielders

The Atlanta duo of Miguel Almiron ($12.0) and Julian Gressel ($10.9) lapped the field, scoring 45 points between them. Almiron’s 24 came on a goal and two assists, and it led the midfield and all players. Gressel did the same, but for just 21 points. Somewhere off in the distance was Federico Higuain (CLB, $7.0), who scored 14 points with a goal and an assist.

Forwards

Another Atlanta duo, Hector Villalba ($10.9) and Josef Martinez ($13.6) led the forwards by scoring two goals each, and 18 and 16 points respectively. Darwin Quintero (MIN, $13.5) rounded out the top three with 16 points of his own on two assists.

Looking Ahead

Rejoice! D.C. United is back! NYC and Chicago play twice, and Orlando is on bye. I like Joe Willis (HOU, $6.6) in goal at home against San Jose, and Auston Trusty in defense at Columbus. Maxi Moralez (NYC, $10.3) is your midfield man with games vs. Chicago and @ Minnesota, and it’s really hard to argue against David Villa (NYC, $9.5) at that price with two games.
