Fantasy Focus: You just want to be held? Or you want the LZ?

That’s Lucas Zelarayan, by the way.

The leader this round was Peachy Swagger, with a total of 110 points.

Meanwhile, we have a change at the top of the leaderboard, as familiar pacesetter BL4CKnRED has ascended to the top, and now possesses a 10-point advantage over former leader Check Joself.

As we get to the positional roundup, D.C. United players are absent because they were on bye.

Positional Leaders

Goalkeepers

Stefan Cleveland (SEA, $5.8) led the goalkeepers with a clean sheet and 10 points, while similarly-cheap Tomas Romero (LA, $5.2) did the same on the way to 9 points. Tied for third were William Yarbrough (COL, $8.3) and David Ochoa (RSL, $6.1), who each had a clean sheet and 8 points.

Defenders

The duo of Alex Roldan (SEA, $8.5) and Aaron Herrera (RSL, $6.9) tied for the defensive lead with 13 points, with each of them tallying a clean sheet and an assist. Roldan’s teammate, Jimmy Medranda ($5.7) rounded out the top three with a clean sheet and 12 points.

Midfielders

Lucas Zelarayan (CLB, $9.7) led all midfielders and all players with 15 points on a goal and an assist, just ahead of RSL’s Damir Kreilach ($9.4), who scored two goals and 14 points. There was a third place tie, with both Hany Mukhtar (NSH, $9.5) and Luciano Acosta (CIN, $10.1) pairing a goal and an assist on the way to 13 points.

Forwards

Both Adam Buksa (NE, $6.9) and Patryk Klimala (NYR, $6.7) scored a goal and 9 points to lead the forwards, while Carlos Vela (LA, $8.9) was one of many with 8 points, helped by an assist.

Looking Ahead

Houston, Austin, and Kansas City are on bye this round, and everyone else plays once. Keep an eye on Montreal’s goalkeeper situation, as James Pantemis ($6.4) may be a good option to save a little money, at home vs. Cincinnati. In defense, look at Eddie Segura (LA, $7.4) and his three clean sheets from his last four matches, vs. RSL, and in the midfield Alvaro Medran (CHI, $8.3) is averaging 12 points over his last three games, with five assists during that stretch, and he’s @ Nashville. At forward, I’m backing Gustavo Bou (NE, $10.4) to resume his goal-scoring streak @ Atlanta.
