The title race is heating up in the Bundesliga, but so is the fight for a spot in Europe and a place in the Bundesliga for next season. With many potential six pointers this week, we take a look at the teams to target and players to consider in our Bundesliga Fantasy player rankings for matchday 23.



1Thomas MüllerFCB@VFB15.8MChoupo-Moting has gone from being a backup with barely any minutes to the first casualty when the manager needs to make subs before an important game so I think Müller is more safer here.

He is in better form with two goals and three assists in his last five Bundesliga matches and Stuttgart is one of his favourite teams to play against as he has four goals and six assists in his last 11 games against them with just one blank away from home.
2Randal Kolo MuaniSGE@WOB14.1MA quick reminder that Kolo Muani has blanked in two games in a row just once this season.
3Jamal MusialaFCB@VFB15.9MSlowly picking up form with Kimmich+Goretzka back in midfield but feels like an early sub risk with the PSG game coming up.
4Karim OnisiwoM05vs TSG11.6MMainz are on a three-game unbeaten streak and convincingly thrashed Borussia at home so I can't see how they won't do it against vs the most out of form team in the league. Just not sure I want to spend a transfer on him with so many popular players predicted to not start this week.

Update: He is a doubt for this week according to Ligainsider.
5Michael GregoritschSCF@BMG10.7M
6Niclas FüllkrugSVW@FCA9MLikely holding him this week if Weiser returns.
7Andrej KramarićTSG@M0514.1MHoffenheim have their backs on the wall and it is sooner rather than later that they win. Although Onisiwo is better on paper, I am leaning towards Kramarić. If they don't win against Mainz, they definitely have to win at home against Hertha next week.
8Sardar AzmounB04vs BSC10.3M
9Mergim BerishaFCAvs FCA10.1M
10Marcus ThuramBMGvs SCF13.8M



1Jonas HofmannBMGvs SCF16.6MAs streaky as he has been, I am willing to hold my recency bias back and get burned again by starring him at home to Freiburg. He is averaging 13.8 points at home and over 20 points in 60% of the games against top 6 teams.
2Vincenzo GrifoSCF@BMG16.9MWas close to securing top four spot if Borussia actually had their four first-choice keepers out this week. Sippel isn't too bad and there is a chance that Omlin comes back. Still expecting a good game for Grifo.
3Christopher NkunkuRBL@BVB17.7MNkunku is basically Hofmann but without the inconsistency. Despite being out for a while, he is still second for goals scored with 12 and even though he blanked in the reverse fixture which Leipzig actually won 3-0, I think he is too good to leave out. Especially if Dortmund have second-choice full-backs playing.
4Florian WirtzB04vs BSC13.1MPretty much the only Leverkusen attacker worth considering.
5Marco ReusBVBvs RBL15.5MThis a game between two teams who are tied for having the second best attack as well as the second best defence in the league. So it could go either way but I still prefer Nkunku.
6Jae-Sung LeeM05vs TSG7.8MThe midfield options aren't as great as the forward options so Lee is probably worth a punt after three consecutive double-digit scores in a row of 17, 10 and 19.
7Rodrigo ZalazarS04@BOC4.6MSchalke have finally learnt how to score and Zalazar looked like the most dangerous player for them in the last game. He always had the talent but Schalke now managing to retain a good amount of possession in games certainly helps. So it isn't surprising that he is averaging over 10 points a game in the last three games since he returned from injury.
8Leon GoretzkaFCB@VFB15.4M
9Christoph BaumgartnerTSG@M0514.3MKramarić is the one getting more shots and key passes but Baumgartner is the most active player for the team in attack so if they win, I can't see how he won't do well either.
10Jesper LindstrømSGE@WOB13.8M



1Alphonso DaviesFCB@VFB18MIf you have Davies or plan to get him in, make sure to drop a small prayer hoping that he crosses 70 minutes this week.
2Jeremie FrimpongB04vs BSC13.8M
3Josip JuranovićFCUvs KOE7.7MWith Gießelmann and Roussillon both being a doubt, Trimmel could still sneak a start in.
4Moritz JenzS04@BOC3.5MBochum have scored a grand total of zero goals over the past three games while Schalke have conceded just once in their last four. Jenz is boring but is still probably the best Schalke defender from a fantasy perspective.
5Anthony JungSVW@FCA2.5MOn set-pieces if Weiser remains out?
6Christian GünterSCF@BMG12.7M
7Mitchel BakkerB04vs BSC9.6M
8Philip MaxSGE@WOB9.1M
9Danny da CostaM05vs TSG5,6M
10Paulo OtávioWOBvs SGE8.7MIf you are predicting Wolfsburg to win.



1Yann SommerFCB@VFB8.9MOne for star flexibility.
2Ralf FährmannS04@BOC2.1M
3Frederik RønnowFCUvs KOE6.6M
4Rafał GikiewiczFCAvs SVW7.1MSaves + cleansheet potential.
5Jiri PavlenkaSVW@FCA5.9MSaving a ton of shots and averaging 8.4 points over the last four games.

Value Rankings


1Henning MatricianiDEFS04@BOC1MA defender from the most in-form defence in the league for just 1M is the biggest bargain you will find this week.
