Bundesliga Fantasy is finally back after a short hiatus, but which are the best players for matchday 16? We take a look in our player rankings.



1Randal Kolo MuaniSGEvs S0412.7MSchalke showed some signs of improvement before the break but the losses against Werder Bremen and second-division Nurnberg in friendlies this month suggests otherwise. Muani has double-digit returns in his last 6/7 games and I expect him to add another one against Schalke.
2Jamal MusialaFCB@RBL15.2M
3Niclas FüllkrugSVW@KOE7.8MKoln have conceded the most goals over the last six Bundesliga games (14), have made no signings to improve their defence and Baumgart has kindly leaked the starting XI ahead of the game so Bremen can prepare accordingly. This can only go one way.
4Alassane PléaBMGvs B0412.2MThuram is a doubt but Pléa is just as good.
5Youssoufa MoukokoBVBvs FCA9.3M
6Serge GnabryFCB@RBL15.7MGnabry had a World Cup to forget but was the most in-form player in the league before the tournament with six goals and two assists in six matches and I think he is one differential that could do well against Leipzig who have struggled to defend their wings.
7Moussa DiabyB04@BMG14.2MI like Diaby and the derby match against Borussia is usually high-scoring but I would be wary of how unpredictable the Foals are at home.
8Christopher Antwi-AdjeiBOCvs BSC3.3MBochum won their last two games and Antwi-Adjei was the star in both matches. They will be confident of securing three points against a mix-match Hertha team with new faces and I can see him spamming lots of shots.
9Karim OnisiwoM05@VFB10.9MStenzel will be starting for Stuttgart? Need I say more?
10Sheraldo BeckerFCUvs TSG11.2MUnion are out of form but are still unbeaten at home.



1Jesper LindstrømSGEvs S0413.1M
2Daichi KamadaSGEvs S0412MTwo midfielders against Schalke is lower risk and not the other way around.
3Jude BellinghamBVBvs FCA14.7MWith Reus possibly out, he could play in a more attacking role where he has thrived. Might also be on penalties. One yellow card away from suspension.
4Jonas HofmannBMGvs B0415.7M
5Florian KainzKOEvs SVW10.1MBaumgart knows that his defence won't win him games if they are to survive so attacking is the only option he has. Kainz is the team's leading goal-scorer with five goals and four assists so the team will be heavily relying on him for any sort of goal threat.
6Dominik SzoboszlaiRBLvs FCB14.5MYes, Bayern are good but Leipzig isn't the team with an unbeaten home record without a reason. There might be a few goals for both sides in this game and he is a decent differential for the week before Schalke in MD17.
7Christoph BaumgartnerTSG@FCU13.8M
8Vincenzo GrifoSCF@WOB16MSo safe it is almost boring but with the budget everyone has right now, he isn't a bad shout for a fifth midfielder even though he has tricky fixtures.
9Florian WirtzB04@BMG11.3MFirst game in over a year so he is wait and watch for me till he faces Bochum in MD17.
10Joshua KimmichFCB@RBL18MNot the best way to spend 18M but the other midfield options aren't any better.



1Mitchell WeiserSVW@KOE5MNot expecting a cleansheet but no one buys Weiser for it anyways. One yellow card away from suspension.
2Raphael GuerreiroBVBvs FCA12.1MThe form of the Dortmund full-backs is so bad that Dortmund considers replacing them as a priority but looking at MD16 only, they have a great chance to keep a cleansheet against Augsburg without Berisha and Guerreiro does have a goal and an assist in his last two home games against them.
3Evan NdickaSGEvs S0410.2MFrankfurt haven't kept a cleansheet in their last seven Bundesliga games but if there is one team that they can keep a cleansheet against it is Schalke. Ndicka will also be a big threat from headers.
4Alphonso DaviesFCB@RBL16.6M
5Jeremie FrimpongB04@BMG12.7MPotential to be involved in a goal or two.
6Aarón MartínM05@VFB8.4MJust a hunch that Mainz full-backs could do well in this game.
7Paulo OtávioWOBvs SCF8.4MWolfsburg, surprisingly, have conceded the least goals over the last six matches (5, same as Bayern) and are on an eight game unbeaten streak. Not essential against Freiburg but you will want to have him next week against Hertha.
8Ramy BensebainiBMGvs B0413M
9Christopher TrimmelFCUvs TSG8.1MThe departure of Ryerson means his spot in the starting XI should be fixed and he is also available for a 0.9M discount right now.
10Christian GünterSCF@WOB14.2M



1Yann SommerFCB@RBL9.3MFully expecting Szoboszlai and Olmo to keep him busy on his debut.
2Kevin TrappSGEvs S048.4M
3Gregor KobelBVBvs FCA10.4M
4Alexander SchwolowS04@SGE5.5MAveraging four saves a game in his last four games and rotates perfectly with Sommer over the next nine matchdays.
5Jiri PavlenkaSVW@KOE5.6M

Value Rankings


1Eric Maxim Choupo-MotingFWDFCB@RBL5.8MJust a small recap of his pre-World Cup performance. He was averaging 12.6 points per game in his last six games with six goals and two assists in that period.
2Marvin DuckschFWDSVW@KOE8MFeels like just the right game for him to spam a lot.
3Janis BlaswichGKPRBLvs FCB3.3MStill the cheapest nailed starting keeper in the game.
4Lars StindlMIDBMGvs B0410.7MBreaking my rule of including sub-10M players in this list since the team values are so high. Stindl is predicted to play OOP as a striker against Leverkusen.
5Finn DahmenGKPM05@VFB2.5MCould sneak a start this week.
6Hrvoje SmolčićDEFSGEvs S044MThe cheapest Eintracht Frankfurt defender.
7Felix NmechaMIDWOBvs SCF3.7MWolfsburg owe most of their good form to this talent who is having a breakout season so he is one to watch.
8Danilo SoaresDEFBOCvs BSC6MSwap with Mittelstädt if you think Hertha will win.
9Jonas WindFWDWOBvs SCF10.3M
10Lukas KüblerDEFSCF@WOB6M8.2M cheaper than Günter and available for a discount.
BonusLinton MainaMIDKOEvs SVW4.5M
