Landon. Again. And while we're here, it's also all about the U.

Stephen Dunn

A total of 130 points vaulted Eagles Screaming to the scoring lead this round. The duo of Landon Donovan (LA, $11.8) and captain Sebastien Le Toux (PHI, $8.4) scored 22 points each, with Le Toux contributing an assist over two games, and Donovan notching two goals and two assists in one game. Lee Nguyen (NE, $8.8) rounded out the top scorers with two goals and an assist in two games for 20 points. In It Toux Wynne It still leads.

Positional Leaders

Goalkeepers

Zac MacMath (PHI, $4.8) earned two clean sheets and 19 points to lead all goalkeepers. The trio of Bill Hamid (DCU, $5.3), Joe Bendik ($4.4), and David Ousted (VAN, $4.9) each earned clean sheets on the way to 9 points.

Defenders

The four starting Philadelphia defenders each earned a pair of clean sheets to top the charts this round. Sheanon Williams ($7.7) added 2 assists for 20 points, while Ethan White ($6.2) scored 15, and both Raymon Gaddis ($6.5) and Amobi Okugo ($8.4) scored 14. For United, Steve Birnbaum ($5.2), Sean Franklin ($7.4), and Taylor Kemp ($4.8) earned 7 points, and Bobby Boswell ($8.8) earned 5.

Midfielders

Landon Donovan's 22 points led all midfielders and all players, and he has averaged 15 points over the last five matches he's played. Not per round with those two-gamers. Per match. Lee Nguyen's 20 tied him with Diego Valeri (POR, $10.2), who assisted on three goals, and added an outstanding 8 attacking bonus points. DCU's midfield was led by Luis Silva ($6.9) with 5 points, Davy Arnaud ($6.3) and Perry Kitchen ($6.5) with 4, Nick DeLeon ($6.7) with 3, and Lewis Neal ($5.3) and Kyle Porter ($4.4) with 1.

Forwards

San Jose's Chris Wondolowski ($9.5) scored two goals and assisted another for 16 points and the lead among forwards. Behind him was Conor Casey (PHI, $7.1), who scored a goal in each of his two games for 14 points, while Obafemi Martins (SEA, $9.5) scored his two goals in one game for 13 points. David Estrada ($5.8) led the forwards for D.C. with 3 points, and Fabian Espindola ($8.7) scored 2.

Looking Ahead

Everyone plays at least once this week, with LA, Montreal, New York, Vancouver, and San Jose all play twice. Games start on Wednesday. LA may be on the road for both of their matches, but they're against Montreal and San Jose, so I don't need to tell you to use your Keanes (back from international duty), Donovans and Zardeses. Otherwise, the players and matchups for the two-game teams aren't that great, even the Metros, who play United and Philadelphia. I like Bobby Shuttleworth (NE, $4.9) in goal vs. MTL, and get Michel (DAL, $7.5) in vs. Vancouver. I do like Pedro Morales (VAN, $8.5) to break out vs. SJ and @ DAL, and Dom Dwyer (SKC, $8.5) @ CHV.

Everyone's Adding: G - David Ousted (VAN, $4.9, +243), D - Dan Gargan (LA, $7.3, +252), M - Landon Donovan (+562), F - Bradley Wright-Phillips (NY, $8.9, +487)

Everyone's Dropping: G - Bobby Shuttleworth (-166), D - Andrew Farrell (NE, $7.4, -153), M - Chris Rolfe (DCU, $7.0, -769), F - Fabian Espindola (-321)
