Graham Zusi is locked in at the moment, and if not for Chris Wondolowski and his goal-scoring exploits, Zusi could walk away with league MVP. Zusi has five goals for the season, which tied his career high set last year, and his 14 assists are tied for the most in the league. Clearly, last year was no fluke for the rising U.S. men's national team candidate.
