It is derby week in the Bundesliga with many local rivals facing each other and we take a look at the impact it has in fantasy in our Bundesliga Fantasy player rankings for matchday 24.



1Sadio ManéFCBvs FCA15.9MMüller is a doubt, Musiala might play limited minutes or deeper while Mané is well rested. Seems like a good week to punt on him and he is on sale too.
2Randal Kolo MuaniSGEvs VFB14.3MAs reliable as Kolo Muani is, Stuttgart's defence has tightened up over the last few games and I think Bayern are just likely to score more goals so their attackers have a higher ceiling.
3Jamal MusialaFCBvs FCA15.9MMore likely than not that Gravenberch slots in for Goretzka so Musiala isn't a very big risk.
4Ludovic AjorqueM05@BSC8.8MAjorque right now reminds me of Füllkrug at the start of the season. Cheap, overlooked and consistent. He has three double digit scores in the last four games including an 11-pointer in the last game without a return. Mainz are on a four game winning run so he could be a good differential.
5Michael GregoritschSCFvs TSG10.6MBest forward with a standalone fixture this week.
6Niclas FüllkrugSVWvs B049.2MThis matchup has generally been low-scoring over the past few years but with Alonso being adament that he doesn't need to rotate much after playing his full strength XI in the Europa League, I think we might see some goals in this game.
7Moussa DiabyB04@SVW15M
8Sébastien HallerBVB@S0413.7M
9Andre SilvaRBLvs BMG14.1M
10Sheraldo BeckerFCU@WOB12MUnion already beat Wolfsburg 2-1 in the Pokal just over a month ago, so they have a good idea what it takes to beat them. That being said, Becker's inconsistency is keeping me away from this one.



1Florian KainzKOEvs BOC9.5MThe best standalone fixture this week + on sale.
2Vincenzo GrifoSCFvs TSG16.9MHoffenheim is the most out of form team in the league having lost each of their last six games and not winning a game since October but they are also one of the worst teams at defending set-pieces.
3Jude BellinghamBVB@S0416MBellingham was at his fantasy-best when Reus was out and Brandt hadn't hit form. This is one of the biggest derbies in the world and there is incentive for both teams to win the game so expecting it to be open even though Schalke have conceded only once in their last six Bundesliga games.
4Florian WirtzB04@SVW13.4M
5Dominik SzoboszlaiRBLvs BMG15.8M
6Jonas HofmannBMG@RBL16.7MI have ranked him low but I will probably hold him considering his record against top 6 teams. Still expecting a Leipzig win.
7Joshua KimmichFCBvs FCA18.3MBetter fantasy-wise when Goretzka isn't playing but hasn't hit a double-digit score since MD14, so I am not sure he is worth the price.
8Jae-Sung LeeM05@BSC7.9M
9Linton MainaKOEvs BOC4.6MPredicted to play OOP up top.
10Yannick GerhardtWOBvs FCU7.3MInvolved in Wolfsburg's last 3/4 goals.



1João CanceloFCBvs FCA13.1MIn this week's Nagelsmann roulette, Cancelo is predicted to start and Davies is predicted to be benched.
2Jonas HectorKOEvs BOC11MHector is someone worth looking at regardless of the fixture. He is averaging 10.2 points over the last five games and has played against teams like Union, Wolfsburg, Eintracht Frankfurt and Leipzig in that period. Worth noting that Bochum haven't scored even once in their last three games.
3Raphaël GuerreiroBVB@S0413MIf you can't help but get him every time he is predicted to start, I don't blame you. He has scores of 18, 17 and 28 in just his last three matches with four assists. Also great for star flexibility this week.
4Jeremie FrimpongB04@SVW13.8M
5Christian GünterSCFvs TSG14.1MFeels like a straightforward cleansheet considering Hoffenheim haven't scored in three games but always worried that this might be the game they bounce back in.
6Borna SosaVFB@SGE12.2MSosa's attacking potential > Frankfurt defenders with higher cleansheet odds.
7David RaumRBLvs BMG13M
8Danny da CostaM05@BSC5.7M
9Mitchell WeiserSVWvs B045M
10Niko GießelmannFCU@WOB8.2M



1Rafał GikiewiczFCA@FCB7.3MCeiling game for the league's second best keeper at saving shots.
2Marvin SchwäbeKOEvs BOC6.3MDecent cleansheet potential and plays first.
3Mark FlekkenSCFvs TSG10.4MIf you need a keeper who plays on Sunday.
4Robin ZentnerM05@BSC6.6M
5Yann SommerFCBvs FCA8.9M
