The Losada goes a little slower gets the nod this week, leading the round with a score of 98 points.

BL4CKnRED still leads overall, extending their advantage to 46 points.

Positional Leaders

Goalkeepers

Tim Melia (SKC, $7.5) kept a clean sheet and scored 10 points, leading the position. Just behind him was a trio of guys with a clean sheet and 9 points — Nick Marsman (MIA, $6.8), Stefan Frei (SEA, $8.8), and Przemysław Tyton (CIN, $5.3). For D.C., Jon Kempin ($4.8) scored 3 points.

Defenders

Nashville’s Walker Zimmerman ($8.3) led all defenders and all scorers with 15 points on the strength of a goal and a clean sheet. Trailing him were George Campbell (ATL, $4.1), whose own goal and clean sheet were good for 14 points, and Teenage Hadebe (HOU, $5.7), whose clean sheet and assist helped him to 13 points. The United defense featured Donovan Pines ($5.7) and Steven Birnbaum ($4.0) with 4 points each, Antonio Alfaro ($5.0) with 2, and Joseph Mora ($4.0) with 1.

Midfielders

Ezequiel Barco (ATL, $9.2) scored a goal on the way to 13 points, leading the midfielders. He was just ahead of the 12-point pair of Fafa Picault (HOU, $8.7), with two goals, and Haris Medunjanin (CIN, $5.8), with a goal and an assist. The DCU midfield was led by Russell Canouse ($5.6) with 4 points; followed by Kevin Paredes ($5.0) with 3; Paul Arriola ($7.5) with 2; and the trio of Yamil Asad ($4.4), Felipe Martins ($4.0), and Drew Skundrich ($4.0) with 1 point each.

Forwards

Cristian Arango (LA, $9.5) continued his hot streak, leading the forwards with two goals and 14 points. Off the pace were Ricardo Pepi (DAL, $7.2), with a goal and 8 points, and D.C.’s own Ola Kamara ($9.9) with a goal and 7 points. United’s remaining scoring forwards were Yordy Reyna ($6.5) with 2 points, and Ramon Abila ($4.6) with 1.

Looking Ahead

Everyone plays twice this week, except for Nashville, New England, Philadelphia, Kansas City, Vancouver, and Seattle. Despite playing just once, I like Matt Turner (NE, $7.0) in goal vs. Columbus, and I like Anton Walkes (ATL, $8.7) in defense vs. Cincinnati and DCU. Hany Mukhtar (NSH, $12.5) has just one game as well, but he’s a great option in midfield @ lowly Toronto, and Joseph Martinez (ATL, $8.9) is a fine option at forward.
