There are many exciting fixtures on matchday 11. Still, the one that stands out in our Bundesliga Fantasy player rankings is the match between table toppers Union Berlin against bottom-of-the-table Bochum. Read on to find out more about our picks for the week.
|1||Sheraldo Becker||FCU||@BOC||11.1M||Although he isn't as explosive now as he was at the start of the season, you would want to back him against Bochum because of the matchup.|
|2||Jordan Siebatcheu||FCU||@BOC||8.2M||Slightly doubtful but should start. Also been slightly inconsistent like Becker but targeting Bochum to conceded goals almost always works out (unless you own Frankfurt players against them).|
|3||Jamal Musiala||FCB||@TSG||13.7M||The best Bayern attacker on his day.|
|4||Marcus Thuram||BMG||vs SGE||12.9M||Still split between Thuram and Plea who should be even more involved now that Hofmann is out but it is hard to overlook Thuram who has been in the top five for shots almost every week.|
|6||Dodi Lukebakio||BSC||vs S04||8.5M||Stevan Jovetić might seem like a more fun punt but Lukebakio has scored in each of his last three games and is also on penalties.|
|7||Michael Gregoritsch||SCF||vs SVW||8.9M|
|8||Youssoufa Moukoko||BVB||vs VFB||9.3M||The fact that he is averaging 0.56 goals per 90 over Modeste's 0.22 goals per 90 says it all.|
|10||Moussa Diaby||B04||vs WOB||13.6M|
|1||Dominik Szoboszlai||RBL||@FCA||12.9M||As if the midfield options weren't bad enough already, Hofmann is out and Nkunku is doubtful for this week. The only positive is that Szoboszlai is guaranteed to start. Although Nkunku has most of the limelight, Szoboszlai is meant to be Rose's star player and even got two assists last week while Nkunku blanked.|
|2||Vincenzo Grifo||SCF||vs SVW||14.7M||Werder Bremen might be in the top half of the table but they have kept the same number of cleansheets this season (1) as Bochum and Schalke.|
|4||Florian Kainz||KOE||@M05||9.6M||The early game this week feels like a trap but I also cannot ignore the fact that Mainz have the worst home record in the league with just three points and no wins but also the best away record at the same time with 12 points. Since we have five transfers every week, Kainz might as well be worth a punt.|
|5||Yannick Gerhardt||WOB||@B04||6.5M||Three goals in his last three games and if you have played Bundesliga Fantasy before, you know it is no fluke because Gerhardt is capable of that. You might want to get him this week or next to fill your budget midfielder slot as he faces Leverkusen then Bochum.|
|6||Jude Bellingham||BVB||vs VFB||13.6M||The closest thing that Dortmund have to Reus right now.|
|8||Ritsu Doan||SCF||vs SVW||9.2M|
|7||Julian Brandt||BVB||vs VFB||13M|
|9||Lars Stindl||BMG||vs SGE||10.2M||Gladbach have only lost one of their last eight Bundesliga games against Eintracht Frankfurt (W4, D3) but the Eagles have also picked up more points away against Borussia than any other side in their history. Two contrasting facts but I am still leaning towards a draw with goals for both sides.|
|1||Julian Ryerson||FCU||@BOC||5.8M||The best defence in the league against the worst attack is as lopsided as it gets. My only worry is that he has played the entirety of each of the last three matches but Ligainsider predicts thatTrimmel is the one who could be rotated even though he was rotated for the Pokal game.
Update: Niko Gießelmann is now predicted to start over Ryerson.
|2||Raphael Guerreiro||BVB||vs VFB||12M||Stuttgart have scored 10 goals in their last two games against Bochum and Arminia but I don't think it is a sign that they have turned their form around because both teams are at the bottom of Bundesliga and 2. Bundesliga.|
|3||Benjamin Pavard||FCB||@TSG||12.1M||Hoffenheim have been in free-scoring form but them scoring against Bayern seems more unlikely than not.|
|5||Marvin Plattenhardt||BSC||vs S04||6.8M||He hasn't paid off this year but his set-pieces and matchup against Schalke make him a solid differential.|
|6||Jeremie Frimpong||B04||vs WOB||11.5M|
|7||Jonas Hector||KOE||@M05||10.4M||Mainz have only scored two goals at home this season. For comparison, even Bochum have scored five and Schalke eight.|
|8||Ramy Bensebaini||BMG||vs SGE||12.5M||Borussia have a tendency to beat big teams at home, which is why I am leaning towards Bensebaini rather than a Frankfurt defender.|
|9||Mitchel Weiser||SVW||@SCF||4.4M||I just can't imagine him not conceding this week.|
|10||Paulo Otávio||WOB||@B04||7.7M||Three assists in his last three games but is overlooked by most. Also one yellow card away from suspension.|
|2||Gregor Kobel||BVB||vs VFB||10.2M||Returned from injury and was the star in the midweek Pokal win against Hannover making seven saves.|
|3||Oliver Christensen||BSC||vs S04||3.6M||Cheap and has a good fixture but that is all going for him.|
|4||Sven Ulreich||FCB||@TSG||3.2M||Will keep his spot for another week at least.|
|1||Tobias Sippel||GKP||BMG||vs SGE||2M||He could keep his spot till the World Cup break but it is best to wait for more updates.|
|2||Paul Jaeckel||DEF||FCU||@BOC||6.1M||Cheapest Union Berlin defender.|
|3||Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting||FWD||FCB||@TSG||4.5M||The first thing that comes to mind when you think of Choupo-Moting will always be Stoke City but he is more than that. The last two games have been his first starts of the season and he already has three goals and two assists!|
|4||Marcus Ingvartsen||FWD||M05||vs KOE||4.5M||Has scored in his last two games and as bad as Mainz might be at home, Koln have been terrible defensively and have conceded nine goals in their last three Bundesliga matches.|
|5||Chidera Ejuke||FWD||BSC||vs S04||8.6M|
|6||Stefan Tigges||FWD||KOE||vs FCA||3.7M|
|7||Aarón Martín||DEF||M05||vs KOE||8.4M|
|8||Linton Maina||MID||KOE||@M05||4.3M||Predicted to play OOP as a striker again with Tigges.|
|9||Kiliann Sildillia||DEF||SCF||vs SVW||3.4M|
