After a chaotic set of midweek games that saw Barcelona get knocked out by Bayern Munich and FC Köln have a match finish a day later than originally planned, the Bundesliga returns for another exciting weekend, and so do our player rankings for matchday 12.



1Jamal MusialaFCBvs M0514M
2Niclas FüllkrugSVWvs BSC7.4MAlready has one foot in the World Cup squad, now needs to score in the next two home games against Hertha and Schalke to confirm his spot.
3Serge GnabryFCBvs M0514.9MProbably the most overlooked player right now. Serge Gnabry has one goal and six assists in his last four games across all competitions.
4Michael GregoritschSCF@S049MThe best fixture possible but his recent form and possible new manager bounce for Schalke does not make him a must-have for me.
5Lukas NmechaWOBvs BOC11.4MThis game might be more evenly matched then we think. Bochum did not just beat the league leaders last week but they also managed to hold them to just eight shots in the game. Also a small chance that Nmecha gets rotated because of poor form.
6Timo WernerRBLvs B0414.6MOther than the game against Schalke, Leverkusen have conceded an average of three goals in their last four matches under Xavi, so it doesn't seem like their defence will improve any time soon.
7Mergim BerishaFCA@VFB8.8MBerisha has two goals and four assists in his last five Bundesliga games alone and it is hard to imagine this game not having goals with Stuttgart not having kept a cleansheet in their last seven Bundesliga games.
8Sheraldo BeckerFCUvs BMG11.1M
9Silas Katompa MvumpaVFBvs FCA10.7MStuttgart might be struggling defensively but Augsburg are even worse. They have conceded 11 goals in just their last three games across all competitions against Koln, Bayern and Leipzig.

Silas put on a star show against Bochum recently with two goals and an assist so he might be worth a shout if you want to do something a little off the wall. Not to mention that Augsburg might field a second-choice right-back and third-choice left-back this week.
10Marcus ThuramBMG@FCU13.1M
BonusAndrej KramarićTSG@KOEFC Köln will be without both first-choice center-back Kilian and first-choice left-back Hector this week. Adding to an already hectic schedule of two games in two days.



1Christopher NkunkuRBLvs B0416.9MThat win against Real Madrid might just be what Leipzig needed to push for a top four spot/title (if it isn't too late).
2Vincenzo GrifoSCF@S0415.1MGrifo might not be the shiniest, most exciting toy on the shelf when shopping for our few big ticket players this week, but his well-rounded fantasy game and set-piece responsibilities always pays off against the worst sides.
3Dominik SzoboszlaiRBLvs B0413.2M
4Yannick GerhardtWOBvs BOC6.4MWolfsburg's top-scorer this season even though he has started in just four games.
5Ritsu DoanSCF@S049.2M
6Daichi KamadaSGEvs BVB11.7MSurprisingly, SGE-BVB tends to be a high-scoring game with an average of four goals per game in the last two matches against both sides. So I might just hold onto Kamada as he plays Augsburg next.
7Christoph BaumgartnerTSG@KOE12.7MAny Hoffenheim player is worth a punt against a tired Köln side this week but Baumgartner is probably my favourite.
8Maximilian ArnoldWOBvs BOC11.3MHe is rediscovering some of his old form now that he has a chance of making the World Cup squad and could be worth a punt against the team that has conceded the most set-piece goals so far.
9Jude BellinghamBVB@SGE14M
10Leon GoretzkaFCBvs M0514.6M



1Mitchel WeiserSVWvs BSC4.4MGet him in your team if you haven't already.
2Christian GünterSCF@S0413.5M
3Paulo OtávioWOBvs BOC7.8MAnother massively overlooked player because no one pays attention to Wolfsburg but he is averaging 10.75 points per game over his last four matches. He is one of the best players at winning duels in the week and has also been more involved in the attack lately with three assists in his last four.
4Benjamin PavardFCBvs M0512.3MThis season Bayern have dominated almost every team from Bochum to Barcelona but having followed Mainz under Bo Svensson for a while, they can surprise any team. Bayern might have one of the best cleansheet odds for the week but it is worth noting that Mainz have scored in every game against them since Bo took over.
6Niklas SüleBVB@SGE10.7MBundesliga Fantasy managers will know that Süle is a different beast when he plays as a right-back. Think of Frimpong but slightly less attacking.
7David RaumRBLvs B0412.2M
8Julian RyersonFCUvs BMG5.8M
9Ramy BensebainiBMG@FCU12.4M
10Luca PellegriniSGEvs BVB8.4MFew will have confidence on Frankfurt beating Dortmund but I think Frankfurt could sneak a cleansheet here.



1Mark FlekkenSCF@S0411MAlthough these are different teams, Schalke haven't scored against Freiburg in their last three Bundesliga matches.
2Jiri PavlenkaSVWvs BSC5.6MA great second option if you want to take advantage of his back-to-back home games against Hertha and Schalke.
3Koen CasteelsWOBvs BOC10.2M
4Sven UlreichFCBvs M053.4MNeuer might also miss the upcoming game so the MD13 game is also in doubt.
5Manuel RiemannBOC@WOB9M
