Fantasy Focus: Lord of the Wings

A Red Bull actually led something

MLS: Columbus Crew SC at New York Red Bulls Vincent Carchietta-USA TODAY Sports

Peachy Swagger was the leader this round, scoring 116 points.

That was just one point better than BL4CKnRED, who stretched their overall lead to 30 points.

Positional Leaders

Goalkeepers

The pair of Tim Melia (SKC, $7.4) and Mason Stajduhar (ORL, $4.6) led the goalkeepers with 10 points and a clean sheet each. Brad Guzan (ATL, $7.7) had a clean sheet of his own and 9 points. D.C.’s Jon Kempin ($4.5) scored points.

Defenders

John Tolkin (NYR, $5.8) paired a goal with a clean sheet on the way to 17 points, somehow leading all defenders and all players. Behind him was the pair of Kai Wagner (PHI, $8.3) and Brooks Lennon (ATL, $7.9), who each tallied a clean sheet and an assist on the way to 13 points. For DCU, Frederic Brillant ($6.7) scored 5 points, followed by both Andy Najar ($8.7) and Joseph Mora ($4.0) with 2, and the trio of Antonio Alfaro ($5.1), Chris Odoi-Atsem ($4.0), and Steven Birnbaum ($4.0) with 1.

Midfielders

Rodolfo Pizarro (MIA, $6.2) scored two goals on the way to 13 points, sharing the positional lead with Luka Stojanovic (CHI, $5.5), who paired a goal with an assist. Marcelino Moreno (ATL, $11.0) rounded out the top three with a goal, an assist, and 12 points. The United midfield was led by Julian Gressel ($10.0) with 8 points, followed by Edison Flores ($6.7) with 7, Paul Arriola ($7.7) with 6, Drew Skundrich ($4.5) with 5, Felipe Martins ($4.0) with 4, the trio of Junior Moreno ($6.9), Kevin Paredes ($5.2), and Yamil Asad ($4.7) with 3, and Russell Canouse ($5.2) with 2.

Forwards

New England’s Adam Buksa ($8.1) scored two goals and assisted one on the way to 16 points, leading the forwards. A pair of Austin players were second and third, with Cecilio Dominguez ($6.7) scoring 12 points on a goal and an assist, and Sebastian Driussi ($8.5) scoring a goal and 11 points. The D.C. scoring forwards were Yordy Reyna ($5.5) with 6 points, Ola Kamara ($10.0) with 4, and Griffin Yow ($4.0) with 2.

Looking Ahead

Everyone plays once this round, except for San Jose, who are on bye. I like Tim Melia in goal vs. Colorado, and Antonio Carlos (ORL, $8.1) in defense vs. Miami. Emanuel Reynoso (MIN, $10.5) is your midfield man at Houston, and get Raul Ruidiaz (SEA, $8.9) in at forward vs. Portland.
