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.



1Sheraldo BeckerFCU@BOC11.1MAlthough 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.
2Jordan SiebatcheuFCU@BOC8.2MSlightly 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).
3Jamal MusialaFCB@TSG13.7MThe best Bayern attacker on his day.
4Marcus ThuramBMGvs SGE12.9MStill 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.
5Sadio ManéFCB@TSG17.3M
6Dodi LukebakioBSCvs S048.5MStevan Jovetić might seem like a more fun punt but Lukebakio has scored in each of his last three games and is also on penalties.
7Michael GregoritschSCFvs SVW8.9M
8Youssoufa MoukokoBVBvs VFB9.3MThe fact that he is averaging 0.56 goals per 90 over Modeste's 0.22 goals per 90 says it all.
9Emil ForsbergRBL@FCA10.9M
10Moussa DiabyB04vs WOB13.6M



1Dominik SzoboszlaiRBL@FCA12.9MAs 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.
2Vincenzo GrifoSCFvs SVW14.7MWerder 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.
3Daichi KamadaSGE@BMG11.7M
4Florian KainzKOE@M059.6MThe 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.
5Yannick GerhardtWOB@B046.5MThree 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.
6Jude BellinghamBVBvs VFB13.6MThe closest thing that Dortmund have to Reus right now.
8Ritsu DoanSCFvs SVW9.2M
7Julian BrandtBVBvs VFB13M
9Lars StindlBMGvs SGE10.2MGladbach 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.
10Leon GoretzkaFCB@TSG14.3M



1Julian RyersonFCU@BOC5.8MThe 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.
2Raphael GuerreiroBVBvs VFB12MStuttgart 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.
3Benjamin PavardFCB@TSG12.1MHoffenheim have been in free-scoring form but them scoring against Bayern seems more unlikely than not.
4David RaumRBL@FCA12.5M
5Marvin PlattenhardtBSCvs S046.8MHe hasn't paid off this year but his set-pieces and matchup against Schalke make him a solid differential.
6Jeremie FrimpongB04vs WOB11.5M
7Jonas HectorKOE@M0510.4MMainz have only scored two goals at home this season. For comparison, even Bochum have scored five and Schalke eight.
8Ramy BensebainiBMGvs SGE12.5MBorussia have a tendency to beat big teams at home, which is why I am leaning towards Bensebaini rather than a Frankfurt defender.
9Mitchel WeiserSVW@SCF4.4MI just can't imagine him not conceding this week.
10Paulo OtávioWOB@B047.7MThree assists in his last three games but is overlooked by most. Also one yellow card away from suspension.



1Frederik RønnowFCU@BOC6.6M
2Gregor KobelBVBvs VFB10.2MReturned from injury and was the star in the midweek Pokal win against Hannover making seven saves.
3Oliver ChristensenBSCvs S043.6MCheap and has a good fixture but that is all going for him.
4Sven UlreichFCB@TSG3.2MWill keep his spot for another week at least.
5Janis BlaswichRBL@FCA3.5M

Value Rankings


1Tobias SippelGKPBMGvs SGE2MHe could keep his spot till the World Cup break but it is best to wait for more updates.
2Paul JaeckelDEFFCU@BOC6.1MCheapest Union Berlin defender.
3Eric Maxim Choupo-MotingFWDFCB@TSG4.5MThe 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!
4Marcus IngvartsenFWDM05vs KOE4.5MHas 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.
5Chidera EjukeFWDBSCvs S048.6M
6Stefan TiggesFWDKOEvs FCA3.7M
7Aarón MartínDEFM05vs KOE8.4M
8Linton MainaMIDKOE@M054.3MPredicted to play OOP as a striker again with Tigges.
