Clint Dempsey: With almost 50% of the votes, Dempsey is the clear runaway winner of the Captain Poll this round and it’s easy to understand why. He has scored a goal or earned an assist in 5 of his last 7 games, he’ll be playing against a Dallas team that is struggling to get a positive result on the road, Seattle has no upcoming bye rounds, and he could once again be partnered with Obafemi Martins. If all the stars align, Papa Deuce could come up with a big score.
Ignacio Piatti: In a distant second place is Montreal’s Ignacio Piatti and I feel that she should be getting a little more respect. Over the past 5 rounds, Piatti has been the driving force for Montreal’s offense and at $9.8m is a great value. Normally I’d be hesitant to recommend a player from an away team, but after the strong away showing in Round 14 and the uncertain form of NYC FC, he’s definitely worst considering.
Kei Kamara: If Columbus did not have a bye in Round 16, Kei Kamara would easily be my top pick for this round. However, with the Mega DGW on the horizon he could potentially represent an extra trade that you could avoid by just waiting to bring him in. But I can understand the lure of the current top scorer in MLS.
