Kaka had an assist, two shots, four crosses and two fouls drawn during Orlando City's 5-3 loss at New York City FC on Sunday.

Kaka's assist was his first since May 17 against the Galaxy, and while he continues to be a vital piece of the Orlando City attack, he has yet to have his full breakout performance that many were expecting in his first year in MLS.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Kaka scored in the fifth minute but was given a straight red card in the 45th of Orlando City's 1-1 draw with Real Salt Lake on Saturday.

Kaka's goal was his third in the last four games, as he continues to find different ways to put the ball in the back of the net. Unfortunately, he'll now miss next weekend's match against FC Dallas before returning July 18 against the Red Bulls after being caught stomping on RSL midfielder Javier Morales.

Kaka took a game-high six shots and ultimately scored the winning goal off a rebounded missed penalty for the 1-0 victory over D.C. United on Sunday.

Kaka had a poor outing last week against the Fire, failing to even take a shot after 89 minutes on the field, but Sunday's performance was far more representative of what he brings to the table for Orlando. As it stands, the Brazilian has seven goals, 31 shots, 11 on goal, and two assists after his first 15 Major League Soccer outings.

Kaka scored from the penalty spot for the third consecutive game during Orlando City's 2-2 draw with Columbus on Saturday.

Kaka now has six goals on the season, but only his first two were from open play, the latter of which came back on March 28 against Montreal. It's a little tough to rely on penalties for fantasy purposes, but Kaka continues to be the engine that makes the Lions' attack roll.

Kaka failed to attempt a single shot during Orlando City's 3-0 loss at Columbus on Saturday.

Kaka came into the match with two goals in his last three games, and Saturday's performance was the first time he's finished an MLS match without even taking a shot. The Brazilian superstar, who still has three goals and one assist in seven games this season, will look to break through next weekend against Toronto, who allowed three goals to FC Dallas on Saturday.

Kaka scored off a deflected free kick in the 91st minute during Sunday's 1-1 draw with New York City FC.

Kaka saved the day for OCSC after they went down to 10 men earlier in the match. He looked every bit the best player on the pitch Sunday and he'll continue to be the obvious focal point of the expansion franchise.

Kaka was officially unveiled by Orlando City SC on Tuesday, ahead of the club's move to Major League Soccer in 2015.

Kaka was released from his contract at AC Milan on Monday and now becomes one of the biggest signings in MLS history. While his best days are behind him, he's still a very good player who has recent UEFA Champions League experience. Orlando City also announced that Kaka will be sent on a six-month loan to Sao Paulo FC, his hometown club, and will return to the States in January.

Kaka is set to become the first signing for Orlando City, who will begin playing in Major League Soccer in 2015, the Orlando Sentinel reports.

Kaka, who was the 2007 Ballon d'Or winner, is currently on his second stint with Serie A side AC Milan, who he joined from Real Madrid last summer. He had seven goals and four assists in 30 appearances with the Rossoneri, and he immediately becomes one of the biggest acquisitions in MLS history.
