Fantasy Focus: Rosinbagger!

So what if he didn’t win Rookie of the Year?

Colorado Rapids v Real Salt Lake

Both West Knox United (left) and Make Amarikwa Great Again tied at the top this round with 84 points.

West Knox United remains at the top of the league overall by 22 points.

Positional Leaders

Goalkeepers

Clint Irwin (COL, $4.6) posted a clean sheet and seven points, leading the goalkeepers, Matt Turner (NE, $6.6) scored 5 points, and Steve Clark (POR, $7.7) scored 4.

Defenders

Colorado’s Keegan Rosenberry’s ($6.1) clean sheet and assist led the defenders and tied the lead among all players with 13 points. His teammate, Lalas Abubakar ($6.0), posted a clean sheet and 9 points, good enough for a tie with Toronto’s Auro ($8.4), who also had a clean sheet.

Midfielders

Marky Delgado (TOR, $8.4) led the midfielders with a goal, an assist, and 12 points, just ahead of Jesus Medina, who scored 11 points on two goals. Nick DeLeon (TOR, $5.8) rounded out the top three with 10 points on the strength of a goal.

Forwards

Rapids players led three of four positions, as Andre Shinyashiki ($6.3) scored two goals, leading the forwards and tying for the overall lead with 13 points. Behind him, Diego Rossi (LA, $9.5) scored a goal and 8 points, while Patrick Mullins (TOR, $4.7) scored a goal and 7 points.

Looking Ahead

Everyone is back in action, and eight teams play twice — NYC, Toronto, Houston, Minnesota, Colorado, the Galaxy, Real Salt Lake, and San Jose. I like Vito Mannone (MIN, $8.3) in goal at Houston and vs. Minnesota, and Ben Sweat (NYC, $4.5) as a cheap option in defense vs. both Toronto and San Jose. Stay with Alejandro Pozuelo (TOR, $9.6) in midfield at NYC and vs. Colorado, and go with Valentin Castellanos (NYC, $7.3) as a cheap forward option.
