Every day I’m Russellin’

District United led this round with a score of 127 points.

Meanwhile, Olsen’s Army’s overall lead shrunk to a narrow seven points.

Positional Leaders

Goalkeepers

David Bingham (LAG, $7.0) paired a penalty save with a clean sheet for 15 points and the positional lead, while Luis Robles (NYR, $6.8) scored 11 points with the help of a clean sheet of his own. Vito Mannone (MIN, $8.0) rounded out the top three with a clean sheet and 9 points. United’s Bill Hamid ($8.0) scored 3 points.

Defenders

Romain Metanire (MIN, $9.1) paired a goal with a clean sheet for 14 points, while Amro Tarek (NYR, $7.3) matched Metanire’s output with a clean sheet and an assist. Seattle’s Kelvin Leerdam ($8.1) had a goal, an assist, and 12 points. The D.C. defense was led by Frederic Brillant ($8.2) with 6 points, followed by Steven Birnbaum ($8.6) with 5, and the pair of Leonardo Jara ($7.7) and Marquinhos Pedroso ($5.0) with 2 each.

Midfielders

Kansas City’s Johnny Russell ($10.0) scored a hat trick and 19 points, leading all midfielders and all players. Behind him, the disgraceful Kaku (NYR, $7.6) had a goal and an assist for 14 points, and Jonathan Dos Santos (LAG, $10.7) scored a goal and 12 points. DCU’s midfield featured Russell Canouse ($6.9) with 6 points, the pair of Junior Moreno ($8.0) and Lucas Rodriguez ($7.2) with 5 each, Ulises Segura ($4.7) with 3, Luciano Acosta ($8.9) with 2, and Zoltan Stieber ($4.8) with 1.

Forwards

Carlos Vela (LA, $15.4) tallied a goal and two assists on the way to 18 points, leading all forwards, while some dude named Brian White (NYR, $6.6) had a goal, an assist, and 13 points. Chris Wondolowski (SJ, $4.5) rounded out the top three with 12 points on two goals. Wayne Rooney ($11.2) led the United forwards with 11 points, and Quincy Amarikwa ($4.0) scored 1.

Looking Ahead

Atlanta, Minnesota, Montreal, RSL, Philadelphia, Colorado, DCU, Chicago, Kansas City, and the Galaxy all play twice, so click that DOUBLE GAME WEEK box. Andre Blake (PHI, $6.7) is a good option in goal this round, at home against Colorado and at Minnesota. In defense, look at Zakaria Diallo (MTL, $7.6) with home games against RSL and Orlando, and try Jonathan Dos Santos in midfield at SKC and at home against New England. Zlatan Ibrahimovic (LAG, $12.8) is fresh off his two game suspension, so play him at forward.
