Deadcity United is the first leader of the season, topping the group with 93 points.

Positional Leaders

Goalkeepers

LA’s Kenneth Vermeer ($7.0) led the goalkeepers with a clean sheet and 10 points. Behind him, the pair of Jesse Gonzalez (DAL, $7.0) and Eloy Room (CLB, $6.5) each had a clean sheet of their own for 9 points. For D.C., Bill Hamid ($5.7) scored 3 points.

Defenders

Kyle Duncan (NYR, $6.0) led all defenders and all players with 15 points on the strength of a goal and two assists. Meanwhile, Milton Valenzuela (CLB, $6.5) had a clean sheet and 12 points, and Eddie Segura (LA, $7.0) did the same for 11 points. Steven Birnbaum ($5.4) led the United defense with 3 points, followed by both Frederic Brillant ($5.3) and Joseph Mora ($4.8) with 1 point.

Midfielders

Minnesota’s Kevin Molino ($9.0) scored two goals and 14 points, leading the midfield. Just behind him were Florian Valot (NYR, $8.0) with two assists and 13 points, and Jack Price (COL, $9.5) with an assist and 12 points. The DCU midfield was led by Julian Gressel ($11.0) with 9 points, followed by Russell Canouse ($6.5) with 7 points, Felipe Martins ($6.6) with 4, Edison Flores ($9.3) with 3, the pair of Junior Moreno ($5.8) and Ulises Segura ($4.8) with 2 each, and Yamil Asad ($7.3) with 1.

Forwards

Maxi Urruti (MTL, $8.5) paired a goal with an assist on the way to 14 points, leading all forwards, while Jordan Morris (SEA, $10.5) scored twice on the way to 12 points. Carlos Vela (LA, $13.8) rounded out the top three a goal and 9 points. Ola Kamara ($8.8) was the only scoring United forward, with 2 points.

Looking Ahead

So it’s round 2, and with all the money you could ever want and unlimited transfers, you can probably buy anyone that strikes your fancy ¯\_(ツ)_/¯. That said, in goal I like David Bingham (LAG, $7.0) at home against Vancouver, and in defense I like Xavier Arreaga (SEA, $6.5) at home against Columbus. I like Ezequiel Barco (ATL, $9.5) in the midfield at home against Cincinnati (even despite the injury to Josef Martinez), and throw on Cristian Pavon (LA, $12.0) at forward.
