Let's look at how West Weber FC lined up in Week 6:
West Weber FC opted for the five-man backline but it was the forwards are who carried the squad to victory. A captained Chicarito Hernández (LA Galaxy) posted 14 points after banging in a goal in another El Trafico classic. Coming in a close second was Jesús Ferreira (FC Dallas), who tallied 12 points off the bench for West Weber FC in a dominant win against the Colorado Rapids, as the United States international put together another stellar performance.

Top-performing Player Overall
Leonardo Campana (Inter Miami) (18 points) - Campana lead Inter Miami to the team’s first win of the season, a 3-2 stunner against reigning Supporters’ Shield winners, the New England Revolution. The Miami striker did his best to show supporters what life could be like without Gonzalo Higuaín, as he scored a hat trick (15 points), played 90 minutes (2 points) and took four shots (1 point).
Top Crew Players
Jonathan Mensah and Miloš Degenek (5 points) - It is never a good sign when a team’s top two fantasy performers are the center backs because it usually means the team didn’t score any goals. The Crew lost 1-0 on the road to the Philadelphia Union, with the lone goal coming off a goalkeeping gaffe from Eloy Room, which was no fault of the center back pairing. Both Mensah and Degenek held strong, as Mensah played 90 minutes (2 points), completed 73 passes (2 points) and recovered 11 balls (1 points) and Degenek also played 90 minutes (2 points), completed 76 passes (2 points) and recovered seven balls (1 point).
