Make Amarikwa Great Again led the league this round, coming in with 162 points.
Meanwhile, Demonbarber19 is still the overall leader by three points.
Daniel Vega’s (SJ, $5.5) two clean sheets helped him to 17 points, leading all goalkeepers. Brian Rowe (ORL, $5.5) was scored on from beyond midfield by Wayne Rooney, and he also posted a clean sheet on the way to 13 points, while D.C.’s own Bill Hamid ($6.4) had a clean sheet and 12 points.
A trio of San Jose defenders set the pace this round, led by Tommy Thompson ($6.0) with 24 points on two clean sheets and a goal. Close behind him was Florian Jungwirth ($6.5) with two clean sheets and 22 points, and also Marcos Lopez ($5.0), who did the same for 17 points. For DCU, Steven Birnbaum ($7.0) led with 14 points, followed by Frederic Brillant ($6.9) with 13 points, Leonardo Jara ($6.3) with 12, Joseph Mora ($6.5) with 8, Chris McCann ($4.4) with 2, and Marquinhos Pedroso ($4.7) with 1.
San Jose’s Vako ($7.0) came into this round having scored 31 points thus far this season, and then he doubled his output for the season by scoring 31 more points on 3 goals and an assist over two games, leading all midfielders and all players. Maxi Moralez (NYC, $11.5) broke up the Earthquake-fest by compiling two goals, two assists, and 23 points, but Magnus Eriksson ($8.0) brought it back for San Jose with 18 points on the strength of just an assist. United’s midfield featured Luciano Acosta ($9.7) with 10 points, Russell Canouse ($7.0) with 9, Lucas Rodriquez ($7.0) with 8, Chris Durkin ($5.8) with 6, Ulises Segura ($5.7) with 5, and Zoltan Stieber ($5.8) with 2.
Wayne Rooney ($11.5) led all forwards with 20 points on the strength of two goals. NYC’s Valentin Castellanos ($7.5) scored two goals and earned two penalties on the way to 17 points, and Kacper Przybylko (PHI, $7.5) rounded out the top three with 15 points on two goals. D.C.’s other scoring forward was Quincy Amarikwa ($5.5), with 2 points.
We’ve got another round with a bunch of teams playing twice: NYC, Seattle, Orlando, Philadelphia, Chicago, Atlanta, Minnesota, San Jose, Kansas City, LAFC, Houston, the Red Bulls, RSL, and Columbus. In goal, I’m leaning towards saving money with Matt Freese (PHI, $4.0) and his home/away with Orlando. In defense I like Tristan Blackmon (LA, $4.5) at Kansas City and vs. Vancouver, and in the midfield bet on Jamiro Monteiro (PHI, $9.8). At forward, I like Carlos Quintero (MIN, $10.5) with games vs. San Jose and at Montreal.
