This round’s leader was Greenville FC, with a total of 112 points and 11 playing starters. This is a good trend.
Bayern Neverlusen’s overall lead is back up to 12 points.
RSL’s Andrew Putna ($5.7) was narrowly the top-scoring goalkeeper, with 11 points on the strength of a clean sheet. On his tail was the pair of Alex Bono (TOR, $5.2) and Steve Clark (POR, $5.8), who each put up a clean sheet and 10 points. D.C.’s Bill Hamid ($5.3) scored 4 points.
Anton Tinnerholm (NY, $10.0) led all defenders and all players with 18 points on a goal, clean sheet, and an assist. Just off the pace were Richie Laryea (TOR, $8.2) with a goal, two assists, and 14 points, and Auston Trusty (COL, $6.1) with a clean sheet, an assist, and 13 points. The United defense was led by Joseph Mora ($4.7) with 8 points, followed by Frederic Brillant ($7.8) with 6, Steven Birnbaum ($5.7) with 5, and the pair of Oneil Fisher ($4.0) and Chris Odoi-Atsem ($4.0) with 3 points each.
NYC’s Alexandru Mitrita’s ($6.0) two goals and 17 points led all midfielders, just ahead of Daniel Royer’s (NYR, $9.7) 16 points on a goal and two assists. Fabian Herbers (CHI, $10.1) rounded out the top three with a goal and 15 points. DCU’s midfield featured Yamil Asad ($5.2) with 5 points, followed by Junior Moreno ($8.7) with 4, Yordy Reyna ($4.0) with 3, Julian Gressel ($7.2) and Moses Nyeman ($4.0) with 2, Federico Higuain ($4.0) with 1, and Russell Canouse ($4.8) with -2.
Tom Barlow (NYR, $4.0) scored two goals and 13 points, leading the forwards and proving that he is not actually a mid-90s reliever. Meanwhile, Jordan Morris (SEA, $12.7) tallied a goal and an assist for 12 points, and Kacper Przybyłko (PHI, $13.0) put up two assists and 11 points. United’s scoring forwards were Ola Kamara ($5.2) and Griffin Yow ($4.0) with 2 points each, and Erik Sorga ($4.0) and Gelmin Rivas ($4.0) with 1 each.
I still like Dayne St. Clair (MIN, $8.5) in goal this round, at home against Cincinnati. In defense I’m saving some money with Henry Kessler (NE, $7.0) at home against Nashville, and while Nicolas Lodeiro (SEA, $14.7) is an obvious midfield choice at home against Seattle, you can balance the books with Anthony Fontana (PHI, $4.7) and his four goals in the last 131 minutes. Ride with Jordan Morris at forward.
