Rafael Czichos (CHI, $9.5) scored a goal and kept two clean sheets for 24 points, leading the defenders and sharing the overall lead. Behind him was the NYCFC pair of Thiago Martins ($10.2) and Tayvon Gray ($6.5) who each kept two clean sheets on the way to 21 and 18 points respectively. The United defense featured Brendan Hines-Ike ($5.6) with 11 points, followed by Andy Najar ($6.8) with 6, Steven Birnbaum ($5.) with 5, and Chris Odoi-Atsem ($4.0) with 1.

Everyone plays once this round. I like Gabriel Slonina in goal at Vancouver, and Alexander Callens (NYC, $10.6) in defense vs. Miami. Emanuel Reynoso looks great in midfield at Houston, and Jefferson Savarino (RSL, $10.9) is your man at forward vs. Dallas.
