Round 6 was promising for some players that haven’t been getting results: Dom Dwyer scored a goal this week, Sebastian Giovinco had a promising game, and Albert Rusnak was the highest scoring player of the week (though selected by only 1.8% of managers).
BW League Standings after Week 6
The top three stayed put this week with Abbie, Eric Lang, and Eric Rode holding firm. Phil Kenney made a big run back up the table with the highest score of the week with 87 points by captaining Alessandrini who had 20 points. Walker Zimmerman and Matt Hedges were both top defenders this week, also on Phil’s team.
Head to Head
There were some shake-ups at the top of the table this week! Now the top five teams are undefeated, and Abbie is still at the top. Eric Lang dropped a game falling all the way down to 9th place. Seth Sinovic came up huge for many managers, and Rapids BR used him to jumped a few spots. (He won our match by two points. Not like I’m upset or anything.)

Biggest Value Picks
Albert Rusnak was the highest scorer this week, and only picked by 1.8% of managers. RSL has struggled to score, and it took a blizzard to produce goals. He did look good this week, but is he worth $9.2, especially considering he is coming to Colorado this weekend?
Seth Sinovic scored his first regular season goal, and was the highest scoring defender in Week 6 - just missing out on the clean sheet bonus. SKC’s defense is no joke!
Sorry to say it, but Tim Howard, and the Rapids defense as a whole, didn’t have a great game. There were plenty of opportunities to make saves and score. With only two points and being one of the higher priced keepers, we are going to expect more. But I am betting on Tim this week.
Nick Lima was selected by 20% of managers but only scored four points this week. He played the full 90 but didn’t get a clean sheet, which really hurt Lima this week.
Going into Week 7, can the Rapids bounce back at DSGP? Can Sporting KC continue to put goals away? How many goals will Atlanta put in on Montreal? (I’m betting more than two.)
