It was Blacksburg ‘96 at the top of the chart this round, with a score of 114 points.

That score was just one point better than 4-4-2 Loko, who is the overall leader by a seven-point margin.

Positional Leaders

Goalkeepers

A trio of goalkeepers topped the position this round with 10 points — William Yarbrough (COL, $6.8), John McCarthy (MIA, $5.5), and Carlos Coronel (NYR, $5.4) — with each earning a clean sheet. DCU’s Chris Seitz ($4.7) scored 2 points.

Defenders

Seattle’s Brad Smith ($6.0) put up a goal, an assist, and a clean sheet on the way to 18 points, leading all defenders and all players. Behind him was the NYC duo of Anton Tinnerholm ($7.2) and Alexander Callens ($6.7), who each scored 12 points on the strength of a clean sheet, while Tinnerholm added a goal. Tony Alfaro ($4.9) led the D.C. defense with 6 points, followed by Brendan Hines-Ike ($6.0) with 2 points, and the pair of Joseph Mora ($4.5) and Andy Najar ($4.3) with 1 each.

Midfielders

Carles Gil (NE, $10.6) paired a goal with an assist on the way to 17 points, leading the midfielders. Damir Kreilach (RSL, $7.5) added a goal to his two assists on the way to 15 points, while Marcelino Moreno (ATL, $8.2) scored a goal and 12 points. The United midfield was led by the pair of Julian Gressel ($8.4) and Yamil Asad ($6.5) with 6 points each, followed by Edison Flores ($7.3) and Moses Nyeman ($4.2) with 3 point each, Felipe Martins ($4.4) with 2, and Junior Moreno ($6.1) with 1.

Forwards

Cade Cowell’s (SJ, $5.4) 16 points came on a goal and two assists, leading the forwards ahead of Raul Ruidiaz (SEA, $10.9), who scored two goals and 14 points. Rubio Rubin (RSL, $7.0) rounded out the top three with two goals and 13 points. The D.C. forwards were Erik Sorga ($4.1) with 2 points, and both Adrien Perez ($4.0) and Kimarni Smith ($4.0) with 1 point.

Looking Ahead

Cincinnati is the lone team on bye this round. Minnesota has scored one goal in three games, and Colorado has two clean sheets in three matches, so William Yarbrough is worth a look in goal for the Rapids. Alex Roldan (SEA, $6.5) looks good in defense at Portland, and Eduard Atuesta (LA, $10.7) is worth a look in midfield at the Galaxy. Save a little money at forward with Rubio Rubin at home against San Jose.
