The numbers are in for Week 19 of the MLS season. Below you can see which players had the most productive weeks, according to the Audi Player Index, as the league heads towards the playoff push. 

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