Audi MLS Player Index Week 1: Who finished in the top 20?

The Audi Player Index was introduced to MLS this season and we now have our first numbers coming in after Week 1. Below you can find the top 20 players according to the Audi Player Index in Week 1.

The Index is calculated by rating nearly every action on the field according to the amount of positive or negative impact on the team's success, the position of the player and and key tasks and the place on the field where the action takes place. The most influential player possible is a goal from outside the box, which would give a forward 545 points.
