Fantasy Focus: Epic Feilhaber

Now, about that hair.

Peter G. Aiken-USA TODAY Sports

A score of 77 set the pace this round, as Cathedral SC led the way. Pedro Morales (VAN, $11.3) wore the armband and scored 14 points with an assist. Trailing him was Benny Feilhaber (SKC, $9.4), who assisted two goals en route to 12 points, while Jeff Larentowicz (CHI, $7.5) scored 9 points on the strength of a goal. Poor Man's Porales still leads overall.

Positional Leaders

Goalkeepers

DCU's Bill Hamid ($6.3) and New England's Bobby Shuttleworth (NE, $5.5) tied atop the goalkeeper scoreboard with 8 points, each of them earning a clean sheet. Meanwhile, three goalkeepers tied for third with 7 points, each of them earning clean sheets of their own -- Nick Rimando (RSL, $6.1), Stefan Frei (SEA, $5.5), and David Ousted (VAN, $5.5).

Defenders

Nat Borchers (POR, $7.9) led the defenders with 10 points and a goal. Behind him, four players tied on 9 points -- Larentowicz; and Jamison Olave (RSL, $8.3), Chad Marshall (SEA, $8.7), and Kendall Waston (VAN, $8.7), each of whom had clean sheets. For United, Bobby Boswell ($9.1) and Taylor Kemp ($7.5) scored 7 points, while Sean Franklin ($8.1) and Kofi Opare ($5.1) scored 6 points.

Midfielders

Benny Feilhaber's 12 points led all midfielders and all players. Sebastian Giovinco (TOR, $11.2) was close behind with 11 points on a goal and an assist. Three players tied for third with 10 points -- Shaun Maloney (CHI, $9.1), Javier Morales (RSL, $11.1), and Benoit Cheyrou (TOR, $8.2) -- each of them scored a goal, and Maloney and Cheyrou added an assist. D.C.'s midfield was led by Luis Silva ($8.5) with 6 points; while each of Davy Arnaud ($6.6), Perry Kitchen ($7.5), Chris Pontius ($7.0), and Chris Rolfe ($8.6) scored 3 points; and Nick DeLeon ($6.4) and Michael Farfan ($6.4) scored 1 point.

Forwards

Four players tied with 8 points, leading the position. Each of Fernando Aristeguieta (PHI, $7.7), Obafemi Martins (SEA, $11.3), Octavio Rivero (VAN, $8.8), and especially Tesho Akindele (DAL, $8.2) PUT IT IN YOUR GOAL. For United, both Jairo Arrieta ($6.5) and Conor Doyle ($5.5) scored 1 point.

Looking Ahead

Two teams are on bye (CHI, TOR), and two teams play twice (CLB, VAN,) and they play each other on Wednesday. The Vancouver guys are probably the better options for taking advantage of the double, as they're scoring pretty freely compared to the Crew, so try to get Rivero and Pedro Morales in. Otherwise, Chris Seitz (DAL, $5.1) is the goalkeeper to use, at home against goalless Colorado. In defense, try on Donny Toia (MTL, $4.9) on the cheap, as Montreal visits Houston. Have a look at Kelyn Rowe (NE, $8.8) at home against Columbus. Lastly, at forward, Tesho Akindele is your man.

Everyone's Adding: G - David Ousted (+310), D - Atiba Harris (DAL, $6.0), M - Pedro Morales (+324), F - Octavio Rivero (+624)

Everyone's Dropping: G - Tyler Deric (HOU, $5.0, -65), D - Axel Sjoberg (COL, $4.7, - 299), M - Jose Villareal (LA, $6.3, -349), F - Jozy Altidore (TOR, $9.6, -439)
