Who?

Anne-Marie Sorvin-USA TODAY Sports

Our overall leader was our leader this round, as In It Toux Wynne It scored 94 points. Thierry Henry (NY, $11.0) and Pedro Morales (VAN, $8.5) tied for the team lead with 13 points. Each scored a goal and assisted another in two games. Robbie Keane (LA, $11.8) scored an armband-aided 12 points with an assist.

Positional Leaders

Goalkeepers

San Jose's Jon Busch ($5.7) and Toronto's Joe Bendik ($4.3) led the goalkeepers with 10 points each, with Bendik saving a penalty, and Busch playing twice. Meanwhile, both Luis Robles (NY, $5.9) and David Ousted (VAN, $5.0) each scored 9 points, each with a clean sheet in two matches. DCU's Bill Hamid ($5.4) earned 5 points.

Defenders

Vancouver's Kendall Waston ($7.0) tallied a clean sheet and a goal over two games for 21 points and the positional and overall lead. Well behind him, Jamison Olave (NY, $9.1) scored 14 points in two games, with a clean sheet and an assist, and Omar Gonzalez (LA, $10.0) scored a goal and 10 points. For United, Steve Birnbaum ($5.3), Bobby Boswell ($8.8), and Taylor Kemp ($4.9) scored 4 points each, and Sean Franklin ($7.4) scored 3.

Midfielders

Javier Morales (RSL, $10.8) scored 13 points with a goal and an assist, to tie Pedro Morales for the midfield lead. Dilly Duka (MTL, $5.8) and Graham Zusi (SKC, $10.6) each scored 12 points, Duka with two assists, and Zusi with an assist and a goal. Nick DeLeon ($6.7) led United's midfielders with 4 points, while Davy Arnaud ($6.3) and Perry Kitchen ($6.5) scored 3, Luis Silva ($6.9) scored 2, and each of Lewis Neal ($5.3), Chris Pontius ($7.7), and Kyle Porter ($4.4) scored 1.

Forwards

Peguy Luyindula (NY, $6.3) scored a goal and 15 points to lead the forwards. Blas Perez (DAL, $8.4) was a step behind with two goals and 14 points, while Thierry Henry's 13 points were good for third. D.C.'s David Estrada ($5.8) scored 2 points, and Fabian Espindola ($8.5) got Geigered and scored -2.

Looking Ahead

Kansas City is off, and everyone else plays just once. Joe Bendik is a good look in goal, as Toronto hosts Chivas. Nat Borchers may be out for Salt Lake on a red card, but they're hosting Colorado, so play Chris Wingert ($6.7) instead in defense. In the midfield, get Javier Morales back in, as he's averaging 9 points per game in the last 5 games he's played. At forward, Chris Wondolowski (SJ, $9.6) is heating up with 5 goals and an assist in 6 games, and he's playing @ Montreal.

Everyone's Adding: G - Bill Hamid (+185), D - DeAndre Yedlin (SEA, $7.4, +102), M - Clint Dempsey (SEA, $10.5, +165), F - Obafemi Martins (SEA, $9.5, +804)

Everyone's Dropping: G - Luis Robles (-68), D - Dan Gargan (LA, $7.3, -258), M - Landon Donovan (LA, $12.0, -164), F - Bradley Wright-Phillips (NY, $8.9, -1035)
