That’s Lucas Zelarayan, by the way.
The leader this round was Peachy Swagger, with a total of 110 points.
Meanwhile, we have a change at the top of the leaderboard, as familiar pacesetter BL4CKnRED has ascended to the top, and now possesses a 10-point advantage over former leader Check Joself.
As we get to the positional roundup, D.C. United players are absent because they were on bye.
Stefan Cleveland (SEA, $5.8) led the goalkeepers with a clean sheet and 10 points, while similarly-cheap Tomas Romero (LA, $5.2) did the same on the way to 9 points. Tied for third were William Yarbrough (COL, $8.3) and David Ochoa (RSL, $6.1), who each had a clean sheet and 8 points.
The duo of Alex Roldan (SEA, $8.5) and Aaron Herrera (RSL, $6.9) tied for the defensive lead with 13 points, with each of them tallying a clean sheet and an assist. Roldan’s teammate, Jimmy Medranda ($5.7) rounded out the top three with a clean sheet and 12 points.
Lucas Zelarayan (CLB, $9.7) led all midfielders and all players with 15 points on a goal and an assist, just ahead of RSL’s Damir Kreilach ($9.4), who scored two goals and 14 points. There was a third place tie, with both Hany Mukhtar (NSH, $9.5) and Luciano Acosta (CIN, $10.1) pairing a goal and an assist on the way to 13 points.
Both Adam Buksa (NE, $6.9) and Patryk Klimala (NYR, $6.7) scored a goal and 9 points to lead the forwards, while Carlos Vela (LA, $8.9) was one of many with 8 points, helped by an assist.
Houston, Austin, and Kansas City are on bye this round, and everyone else plays once. Keep an eye on Montreal’s goalkeeper situation, as James Pantemis ($6.4) may be a good option to save a little money, at home vs. Cincinnati. In defense, look at Eddie Segura (LA, $7.4) and his three clean sheets from his last four matches, vs. RSL, and in the midfield Alvaro Medran (CHI, $8.3) is averaging 12 points over his last three games, with five assists during that stretch, and he’s @ Nashville. At forward, I’m backing Gustavo Bou (NE, $10.4) to resume his goal-scoring streak @ Atlanta.
