Kyle Duncan (NYR, $5.1) nearly doubled his total output for the season in scoring 23 points on a goal and two clean sheets, leading all defenders and all players. Meanwhile, his teammates, Aaron Long ($7.7) and Kemar Lawrence ($5.7), had two clean sheets apiece on the way to 18 and 17 points, respectively. Frederic Brillant ($9.4) led the United back line with 14 points, followed by Steven Birnbaum ($7.3) with 10 points, and Joseph Mora ($6.2) with 8 points.
Atlanta’s Pity Martinez ($9.9) tallied a goal and an assist on the way to 18 points, leading the midfielders.

It’s the penultimate round of the season, and Portland, Atlanta, San Jose, New England, NYC, Philadelphia, the Galaxy, LAFC, Minnesota, Kansas City, RSL, and Houston all play twice. Vito Mannone is your man in goal, with home games against Kansas City and LAFC, while Florian Jungwirth (SJ, $7.7) looks good in defense at home against Philadelphia and Seattle. Cristian Pavon (LAG, $11.0) is your man in midfield at RSL and vs. Vancouver, and stick with Zlatan Ibrahimovic at forward.
