Fantasy Focus: It's your boy Grabavoy

Where did that come from?

Noah K. Murray-USA TODAY Sports

There were some big scores this week, and Salisbury United SC was the pick of the litter with 124 points. Sebastian Giovinco (TOR, $13.3) wore the armband and scored 38 points in two games, with two goals and an assist. San Jose's Chris Wondolowski (SJ, $11.2) scored 14 points with two goals in two games, and his teammate, Quincy Amarikwa ($7.0) scored a goal and 12 points. Poor Man's Porales stretched the overall lead to 232 points.

Positional Leaders

Goalkeepers

Three players tied for the goalkeeping lead with 11 points -- Evan Bush (MTL, $5.4), Josh Saunders (NYC, $5.2), and Luis Robles (NYR, $5.8). Each earned a clean sheet, but only Bush did his work in just one game. DCU's Bill Hamid ($6.6) scored 6 points.

Defenders

Damien Perrinelle (NYR, $7.2) scored a goal and earned a clean sheet for 15 points over two games, and the lead among defenders. His teammate, Kemar Lawrence ($6.9) earned a clean sheet in two games for 13 points. Three defenders tied with 11 points -- Eric Miller (MTL, $6.1), Shay Facey (NYC, $6.4), and RJ Allen (NYC, $4.7) -- each of whom earned a clean sheet. The United defense featured Bobby Boswell ($9.6) and Sean Franklin ($8.0) with 2 points, and both Steve Birnbaum ($7.7) and Taylor Kemp ($7.8) with 1 point.

Midfielders

Ned Grabavoy (NYC, $7.3) led New York's only team with two goals and an assist and 20 points over two games, leading the midfielders and all players. Sebastian Giovinco's 19 points were good for 2nd. Frank Lampard (NYC, $10.0) and Benny Feilhaber (SKC, $10.6) tied on 13 points, with Lampard tallying a goal and an assist, and Feilhaber scoring two goals. Chris Rolfe ($9.6) led the DCU midfield with 7 points; while each of Nick DeLeon ($6.4), Perry Kitchen ($7.5), and Markus Halsti ($6.9) scored 2 points; and Chris Pontius ($7.0) scored 1 point.

Forwards

Chris Wondolowski's 14 points led the forwards, while Quincy Amarikwa's 12 points were good enough for a tie with Devon Sandoval (RSL, $5.5), who scored two goals. For D.C., both Fabian Espindola ($10.5) and Alvaro Saborio ($9.2) scored 2 points, and Jairo Arrieta ($6.3) scored 1 point.

Looking Ahead

Four teams play twice this round (CHI, HOU, MTL, SKC), and everyone else plays once. It hurts to admit that Evan Bush is the best goalkeeping option, vs. CHI and DCU. The two-game defender options aren't great, but if you're so inclined you should take Jeff Larentowicz (CHI, $8.3) @MTL and @TOR. Benny Feilhaber's your midfield man @HOU and vs. SEA, and go with David Accam (CHI, $9.2) at forward.
