Fantasy Focus: Lion King

Cyle Larin just can't wait to score goals.

Adam Hunger-USA TODAY Sports

Just one team scored more than 100 points: Leister City FC, with 109. David Villa (NYC, $11.2) wore the armband and led the way with 32 points on two goals and an assist. Laurent Ciman (MTL, $7.9) paired a goal with a clean sheet for 14 points, and Kellyn Acosta (DAL, $6.3) tallied a goal and an assist for 12 points. Poor Man's Porales is still the leader overall.

Positional Leaders


It was not a good week for goalkeeper scoring. Just two players earned clean sheets -- Tyler Deric (HOU, $4.9), who led with 8 points, and Evan Bush (MTL, $5.1), who scored 7. Every other goalkeeper scored 4 points or fewer. Andrew Dykstra (DCU, $5.1) was one of the 4-point scorers.


Laurent Ciman's 14 points led all of the defenders, followed by Kellyn Acosta's 12 points. Kendall Waston (VAN, $9.2) scored a goal and 9 points. United's defenders were led by Chris Korb ($5.7) with 7 points, followed by Bobby Boswell ($9.5) with 3 points, Steve Birnbaum ($7.8) with 2, and Taylor Kemp ($7.8) with 1.


Kwadwo Poku (NYC, $6.7) contributed 3 assists en route to 14 points and the lead among midfielders. Both Michael Barrios (DAL, $7.7) and Brad Davis (HOU, $10.1) earned 13 points -- Barrios with two goals, and Davis with a goal and an assist. Nick DeLeon ($6.5) led the DCU midfield with 10 points, followed by Davy Arnaud ($6.5) with 6, Chris Rolfe ($9.2) with 4, Perry Kitchen ($7.4) with 2, and Miguel Aguilar ($4.9) with 1.


Cyle Larin (ORL, $6.0) scored a hat trick and 17 points to lead all forwards and all players. David Villa's 16 points were good enough for second. Both Jozy Altidore (TOR, $10.0) and Octavio Rivero (VAN, $9.1) scored a goal and 9 points. United featured Fabian Espindola ($10.3) scoring 8 points, Alvaro Saborio ($9.6) scoring 7, and both Jairo Arrieta ($6.3) and Conor Doyle ($5.3) with 1.

Looking Ahead

It's MLS All-Star week, so there are no midweek matches, and everyone plays once. The following presumes that any all-stars are going to still play at the weekend. I like Tim Melia (SKC, $5.0) in goal at home against Houston, and Kellyn Acosta, with his 41 points in his last 5 games, away to Chicago. Ethan Finlay's (CLB, $9.1) your man in midfield away to Orlando. David Villa is riding a streak of two games with 12 points or more, followed by a dud (last eight games: 12, 12, 1, 14, 12, 2, 16), so sure, keep playing him.

Everyone's Adding: G - David Ousted (VAN, $5.7, +60), D - Matt Miazga (NYR, $5.8, +257), M - Sebastian Giovinco (TOR, $12.7, +67), F - Cyle Larin (+407)

Everyone's Dropping: G - Stefan Frei (SEA, $5.8, -77), D - Jorge Villafana (POR, $6.2, -149), M - Scott Caldwell (NE, $7.5, -112), F - Kriztian Nemeth (SKC, $8.6, -70)
