After an intense but draining set of midweek games, we try to navigate through all the possible rotations in our Bundesliga Fantasy player rankings for matchday 6.



1Serge GnabryFCBvs VFB14MGnabry might be the lowest-scoring Bayern forward in fantasy so far, but he always deserves mention when he plays teams prone to conceding lots of shots and have weak wing-backs defensive such as Stuttgart. His recent record isn't that bad either, with five goals and three assists in just his last three games against the Swabians.
2Jamal MusialaFCBvs VFB12.7MBayern might rotate heavily in this game, especially their attackers, but I am more confident than not that both Gnabry and Musiala start.
3Niclas FüllkrugSVWvs FCA6.1MOne of the only viable options amongst forwards with standalone fixtures.
3Patrik SchickB04@BSC15.4MFantasy managers aren't really spoilt for choice this week, making an out-of-form Schick look like one of the best options this week.
5Sheraldo BeckerFCU@KOE10.3MJoint top scorer and should be the focal point of the attack if Siebatcheu is out. I wish I could rank him higher, but he did play 90 minutes in the midweek game, and with how good defensively Koln have been this season, I don't think his ceiling is that high.
6Michael GregoritschSCFvs BMG8M
7Marcus ThuramBMG@SCF11.3MI'd like to think that he is less likely to score than Gregoritsch, but Thuram could outscore him even if he scores solely because of the number of shots he generates. Thuram is averaging four shots per game which is only behind Sané (4.4) and tied with Mané.
8Lukas NmechaWOB@SGE11.6MEintracht Frankfurt conceded three goals against Werder Bremen, then kept a cleansheet against Leipzig and ended up conceding three goals in the last 25 minutes against Sporting CP. Which Frankfurt will turn up this time? With the team possibly playing the same defence except for the injured Lenz for their third game in a week, Wolfsburg should fancy their chances in this game, and Nmecha could be a good differential.
9Karim OnisiwoM05@TSG9.8M
10Simon ZollerBOC@S045.2MIn a do-or-die/win-or-get-sacked game for Thomas Reis, there will be a lot of impetus on Bochum to score goals.



1Joshua KimmichFCBvs VFB16.5MKimmich had five shots compared to Mane's one despite playing as a midfielder, and even though Goretzka will eat into his returns, with a game against Stuttgart he is still one of the safer picks in midfield.
2Vincenzo GrifoSCFvs BMG14.4MMust-have if you want star flexibility and Borussia will be missing both first-choice center backs Itakura and Elvedi so Grifo could be trouble from set-pieces.
3Christopher NkunkuRBLvs BVB16.1MNew manager bounce? Dortmund has been Leipzig's boogie team historically but Leipzig did the double over them last season scoring three goals and assisting another three against them in both games.
4Daichi KamadaSGEvs WOB10.8MKamada has scored or assisted in each Bundesliga game this season and if Kolo Muani is rested, the team will rely on him to score goals again vs a Wolfsburg side that conceded four goals against a young and inexperienced Koln attack.
5Marco ReusBVB@RBL15.4M
6Ritsu DoanSCFvs BMG8.7M
7Florian KainzKOEvs FCU9.1MDeserves a mention based on form, but it is worth noting that Union haven't conceded more than a single goal in a match this season even against Bayern.
8Kevin StögerBOC@S046MWas most likely given less points in the last game and I am willing to give him another shot against Schalke.
9Leon GoretzkaFCBvs VFB13.6M
10Dominik SzoboszlaiRBLvs BVB11.7MMight be on limited minutes and Dortmund have been solid defensively so probably not worth the gamble.



1Alphonso DaviesFCBvs VFB15.6MPavard has been putting on his best Philip Lahm impression this season but as much as I love him, he seems like a big risk this week with Nagelsmann hinting at rotation. Also worth mentioning that Kicker has both Pavard and Davies benched.
2Mitchel WeiserSVWvs FCA3.8MI tried to pass both his assists at the end of extra time as fluke but now it doesn't seem like it after he got his third assist in six games last week. Augsburg haven't scored in each of their last two games, plus he plays early, so it almost seems like a no-brainer this week.
3Jonas HectorKOEvs FCU10.3MBoring but safe with a high floor.
4Christian GünterSCFvs BMG13.1M
5Julian RyersonFCU@KOE5.4MA match against the team that has conceded the least goals at home (1) and the team that has conceded the least goals away (1)? I wouldn't rule a 0-0 out with both teams being tired after their midweek games.
6Aarón MartínM05@TSG8.4MBo Svensson doesn't just deserve credit for making Mainz a team that went from being relegation contenders to a team that is capable of competing for an European spot but also for fixing their away form in just a few months time.

Only Furth had a worse record away from home last season (4 points, 49 goals conceded) than Mainz (11 points, 34 goals conceded) but as it stands, Mainz have the best away record in the league with Freiburg. Both teams have won each of their three away games while only conceding two goals.
7Raphael GuerreiroBVB@RBL12.6MGuerreiro Bit of a reach for offensive output, but I don't hate the play.
8Jeremie FrimpongB04@BSC11.3MFrimpong has led the club for key passes in every game since he was moved to the wing. Seaone is in a similar situation as Reis after losing to Club Brugge, so I am hoping they go all out in this game. That being said, he always seems to flop once everyone starts buying him.

Update: Most predicted lineups now say that he will play as a right-back and not as a winger.
9Marvin PlattenhardtBSCvs B047MOne for those who believe Hertha can cause an upset.
10AngeliñoTSGvs M0512.3M



1Manuel RiemannBOC@S048.9MRiemann has been among the top five goalkeepers for shots saved in every single matchday this season.
2Mark FlekkenSCFvs BMG10.8MGot an individual fixture for two weeks in a row.
3Jiri PavlenkaSVWvs FCA5M
4Alexander SchwolowS04vs S046.1M
5Florian MüllerVFB@FCB6.9MBayern is the worst fixture possible to keep a cleansheet but despite conceding plenty of goals against them last season, Müller had six and seven shots saved in each game for an average of 6.5 points per game.

Value Rankings


1Alexander MeyerGKPBVB@RBL2.5MThe cheapest starting keeper in the game right now and should hold his spot for the next 2-3 weeks.
2Kiliann SildilliaDEFSCFvs BMG3.7MI prefer Josip Stanišić more this week for the price *if* he starts.
3Marvin DuckschFWDSVWvs FCA6.7MShoots more than Füllkrug and just needs to find the back of the net, not aim for the stands.
4Anthony JungDEFSVWvs FCA3M
5Jeong Woo-yeongMIDSCFvs BMG7.1M
6Marius BülterFWDS04vs BOC4.3MMight not play up top but is on penalties.
7Dodi LukebakioFWDBSCvs B047.7M
8Gerrit HoltmannFWDBOC@S048.1MAlternate attacking option from Bochum
9Romano SchmidMIDSVWvs FCA4.9MThe only midfielder from Werder Bremen, if any, worth considering.
10Florian DietzFWDKOEvs FCU1.4M
