Fantasy Focus: Goals dot Accam

A brace for your face

MLS: Columbus Crew SC at Philadelphia Union Derik Hamilton-USA TODAY Sports

This round’s leader was Nap-Nasty, with a score of 74 points in what was quite a low-scoring week. Let the record show that we can finally see last round’s teams (again)!

This is a healthy reliance upon Cincinnati players. Make Amarikwa Great Again’s overall lead shrunk to eight points.

Positional Leaders

Goalkeepers

Orlando’s Brian Rowe ($5.2) led the goalkeepers with a clean sheet and 10 points. Behind him, both Carlos Coronel (PHI, $5.0) and Spencer Richey (CIN, $5.8) earned a clean sheet on the way to 8 points.

Defenders

Walker Zimmerman (LA, $7.8) scored a goal on the way to a position-leading 12 points, while the Cincinnati duo of Greg Garza ($5.5) and Forrest Lasso ($5.0) posted dueling clean sheets on the way to 10 points.

Midfielders

Cincinnati’s Kenny Saief ($8.1) paired a goal and an assist for 14 points, leading the midfielders. Trailing him were Sacha Kljestan (ORL, $7.8) and Ilsinho (PHI, $6.0), who each scored a goal and 9 points.

Forwards

David Accam (PHI, $5.8) resurfaced and added an assist to his brace on the way to 15 points, leading all forwards and all players. Meanwhile, Kekuta Manneh (CIN, $6.4) rounded out a big scoring week for the Federal Communications Commission, with a goal, an assist, and 12 points, and Diego Rossi (LA, $9.0) scored a goal on the way to 9 points.

Looking Ahead

Everyone’s in action this round! After seeing New England’s display at home against Cincinnati, I’m leaning towards Vito Mannone (MIN, $6.5) in goal on the road against the Revs. In defense, stick with Walker Zimmerman at San Jose, and I like midfielder Memo Rodriguez (HOU, $5.6) to add to his three goals in two matches when he goes to Colorado. Lastly, after Carlos Vela (LA, $12.3) failed to really deliver against RSL, I’m keeping him in at forward at San Jose.
