Defenders

Malte Amundsen (NYC, $4.0) paced the defenders with 18 points on two assists and a clean sheet. Behind him was Christian Makoun (MIA, $6.6) with a goal, a clean sheet, and 14 points, and Rudy Camacho (MTL, $8.0) with a goal and 12 points. For D.C., Donovan Pines ($5.4) scored 4 points, followed by Chris Odoi-Atsem ($4.0) with 3, Steven Birnbaum ($5.2) with 2, and the duo of Antonio Alfaro ($4.0) and Joseph Mora ($4.0) with 1 each.

Midfielders

Philadelphia’s Daniel Gazdag ($5.5) scored two goals, leading the midfielders with 14 points. Right behind him was the pair of Federico Higuain (MIA, $4.0) and Yimmi Chara (POR, $9.2), who each had a goal and an assist for 13 points.

Looking Ahead

It seems we haven’t had enough matches in MLS recently, so once again it’s easier to list the teams who are playing once, which are: Chicago, New England, LAFC, Austin, Montreal, Portland, Houston, Vancouver. Everyone else plays twice. Andre Blake (PHI, $9.5) looks great in goal @ Toronto and vs. Cincinnati, and Walker Zimmerman (NSH, $10.1) is a great option in defense @ Cincinnati and @ Orlando. In midfield, Jamiro Monteiro (PHI, $9.5) is your man, and at forward it’s Valentin Castellanos (NYC, $10.8) vs. Chicago and @ Miami.
