Matchday 19 of Bundesliga Fantasy is here and we take a look at the best picks including budget busters in our player rankings for the week.



1Marcus ThuramBMGvs S0413.7MBorussia winning their first away game of the season and in convincing fashion with a scoreline of 1-4 against Hoffenheim was just the sign I needed to see before they face Schalke.
2Randal Kolo MuaniSGEvs BSC13.5MIf he could score seven goals and assist another 10 without a wing-back who could cross well, how many more will he score with one that actually can (Philip Max).
3Alassane PléaBMGvs S0412.3M
4Niclas FüllkrugSVW@VFB8.5MStuttgart are inept at defending set-pieces and crosses in general, haven't kept a cleansheet since August and might play their second defence against the top scorer in the league whose 8/13 or 61% goals have come from headers or penalties. I think I am close to connecting the dots here.
5Eric Maxim Choupo-MotingFCB@WOB6.2MSame as Kolo Muani but with Cancelo instead of Max.
6Andrej KramarićTSG@BOC13.9M
7Leroy SanéFCB@WOB14.9MBayern is Wolfsburg's boogie team and Sane is available on sale but I still don't think this game will be easy for the Bayern attackers.
8Moussa DiabyB04@FCA14.4MHe is putting up good numbers (shots and key passes) and it is only time till he scores again. Augsburg just happens to be his favourite team against whom he has scored the most goals in the Bundesliga with five goals in six games but he is yet to score away against them.
9Andre SilvaRBL@KOE13.9M
10Sébastien HallerBVBvs SCF13.5MFreiburg is not an easy opponent and I am still worried about his minutes.



1Jonas HofmannBMGvs S0416.1MHe has scores of 28, 22 and 13 in his last five matches and somehow I have missed all of these hauls while owning him in his blanks. Surely the same thing doesn't happen this week?
2Jesper LindstrømSGEvs BSC13.4M
3Christoph BaumgartnerTSG@BOC14.1MPerfect game to bounce back for Hoffenheim.
4Dominik SzoboszlaiRBL@KOE15.1M
5Florian WirtzB04@FCA12.8M
6Jude BellinghamBVBvs SCF15.1MWith Reus being a doubt again, I still think Bellingham is the best BVB midfielder to roll with this week.
7Daichi KamadaSGEvs BSC11.9MHertha have conceded 10 goals in the three games since the restart which is more than any other team in the league and tied with Werder Bremen. So even though he is out of form, I am giving Kamada an outside chance to score this week.
8Joshua KimmichFCB@WOB18.2MWolfsburg have been Bayern's punching bag for the last eight years or so but this is probably the best Wolfsburg side we have seen in that period.
9Vincenzo GrifoSCF@BVB15.9M
10Gil DiasVFBvs SVW5MLooked impressive in the limited minutes he got against Paderborn and might cause problems on the wings against Werder Bremen who are missing Weiser.



1Christopher TrimmelFCUvs M059.7MAlways a worry that he gets benched but Trimmel has been well rested for this game.
2Jeremie FrimpongB04@FCA13.2M
3João CanceloFCB@WOB13MThe best defender in FPL makes the jump to Bundesliga Fantasy. I am still not convinced he is the best defender for this week but I am getting him anyways.
4Philip MaxSGEvs BSC9MBefore Frimpong, Raum, Angeliño and Guerreiro, there was Philip Max. Think of him as Cancelo but without the hype. If he could get 12 assists and put up double-digit scores almost every week while conceding a ton of goals for Augsburg, he can do much better at Frankfurt.

Note: Still not confirmed to start this week.
5Ramy BensebainiBMGvs S0412.6M
6David RaumRBL@KOE12.7M
7Alphonso DaviesFCB@WOB17.1MEven if I don't have much faith in Bayern's defence, I will keep him anyways as he plays Bochum next week. Unless Max is somehow confirmed to start.

Update: He is now predicted to start as a center-back this week.
9Julian RyersonBVBvs SCF6.1M
10Konstantinos MavropanosVFBvs SVW12.1MDino has a great floor and I think his headers could really test Werder Bremen from set-pieces. Just need him to score in the opposition goal this time and not his own.



1Frederik RønnowFCUvs M056.5MUnion were leaking goals towards the end of the break but have seemed to have found their rhythm again conceding only two goals since the restart.
2Lukáš HrádeckýB04vs BOC10.1MOne for star flexibility.
3Kevin TrappSGEvs BSC8.7M
4Jonas OmlinBMGvs S047MAvailable on sale.
5Janis BlaswichBVB@S043.1M

Value Rankings


1Serhou GuirassyFWDVFBvs SVW9.1MStuttgart's go-to goal-scorer and has been pretty much their only hope of winning games and getting points.
2Ralf FährmannGKPS04@BMG1.4MThe cheapest new starting goalkeeper in the game.
3Danilho DoekhiDEFFCUvs M056.2MMost of the focus has been on Union wing-backs but Doekhi has four goals in his last six games.
4Joe ScallyDEFBMGvs S046M
5Philip HofmannFWDBOCvs TSG5.5MHoffenheim have the better team on paper here but their defence is far from good.
6Marvin DuckschFWDSVW@VFB8.2M
7Amine AdliFWDB04@FCA8.9M
8Kevin BehrensFWDFCUvs M054.9M
9Janik HabererMIDFCUvs M056.8MThe closest thing that Union have to Isco in midfield.
10Florian KainzMIDKOEvs RBL10.2M
