After the second round of the DFB Pokal, where Bundesliga teams fought tooth and nail to advance to the next round, Bundesliga Fantasy is back for matchday 10 for the penultimate week before another subsequent unlimited transfer period.

1Robert LewandowskiFCBvs FCU18.7MThis is the one week where I wish Haaland was available for a star punt. As fixture proof as Lewandowski is, Union always makes it tough for Bayern to score, and the last two games between these two teams ended 1-1.
2Andrej KramarićTSGvs BSC15.6MKramarić plays Hertha in the early fixture against whom he has scored in the last three consecutive games and boasts the best record of his Bundesliga career with eight goals and one assist in 10 games. He has also never lost to the Berliners in those games as far as good omen goes.
3Karim OnisiwoM05@DSC7.4MHe is coming off a 1G+2A (25 pts) haul against Augsburg, for which he led the league in xG and xA for MD10. If you want some insight on how he might perform against Arminia's leaky defence, he had a goal and assist in the midweek 3-2 DFB Pokal win against them.
4Breel EmboloBMGvs BOC10.4MI have high hopes but it would be typical of Borussia to lose against Hertha then win against 5-0 against Bayern and lose to Bochum again.
5Marco ReusBVBvs KOE14.6M
6Yussuf PoulsenRBL@SGE11.1MPoulsen certainly knows about a thing or two on how to get past Frankfurt's defence as he has scored in each of his last two games against them.
7Anthony ModesteKOE@BVB7.8MIf you are playing with Akanji+Pongračić as your center back pairing then you can always expect to concede goals.
8Thomas MüllerFCBvs FCU16.3M
9Lucas HölerSCFvs SGF7.5MFreiburg's leading goal-scorer Höler has moved beyond his goal reliant days for fantasy points and has been relatively consistent this season, averaging 8 points per game. A great chance for him to add another goal to his tally awaits against the worst defence in the league in Greuther Fürth.
10Lucas AlarioB04vs WOB9.6MHe might've not started a single game for Leverkusen this season but it is easy to forget how consistent Alario is. He has 36 goals and 14 assists in just 51 starts in the Bundesliga for the club.




Midfielders

 

RankNameTeamOpponentValueComments
1Christopher NkunkuRBL@SGE15.7MNkunku is an easy pick for the #1 midfielder because there is no other premium midfielder that is in form and expected to start.
2Jonas HofmannBMGvs BOC13.4MHis floor is a bit volatile but it is still undeniable that he is in great form.
3Florian WirtzB04vs WOB12.7M
4Jamal MusialaFCBvs FCU12.2MBayern's brightest teenager has two goals and three assists in the Bundesliga this season despite starting in just two games. Bayern might use this game to let off some steam from their embarrassing Pokal loss, and Musiala could undoubtedly do some damage in his third start.
5Woo-Yeong JeongSCFvs SGF5MIn-form, plays against the worst team in the league that has been hit by Covid and costs just 5M. What is not to love?
6Christoph BaumgartnerTSGvs BSC11.7M
7Filip KostićSGEvs RBL15.3MLeipzig have failed to win against Frankfurt in their last four attempts. Maybe Frankfurt could get something from this game out of nowhere like they did against Bayern?
8Julian BrandtBVBvs KOE10.6M
9Marco RichterBSC@TSG7MIf Höler has become less reliant on his goals for points, Richter has done just the opposite. He isn't taking as many shots but has scored in each of his last two games.
10Daniel CaligiuriFCAvs VFB9.8MAugsburg need points, and they will see Stuttgart's out of form team as a good opportunity to get three points at home. I expect shots and goals for both sides here, so Caligiuri could be worth a shout as a differential.

Defenders

 

RankNameTeamOpponentValueComments
1Christian GünterSCFvs SGF12.8MTo summarise how good Freiburg have been this season, they are the only unbeaten team left after nine matchdays and have conceded the least goals with six.
2Silvan WidmerM05@DSC7.5MNow that he has been reinstated as a wing-back, Widmer is a good pick for fantasy again.
3Jeremie FrimpongB04vs WOB7.7M
4Alphonso DaviesFCBvs FCU14.1M
5Konstantinos MavropanosVFB@FCA7.1MOnly Günter is averaging more points (12) over the last four matchdays among defenders than Dinos (11.25). Surprisingly, he is also ranked 6th for the most in-form player in Europe's top five leagues ahead of players such as Nkunku and Alexander-Arnold, so maybe there is a correlation.
6Joe ScallyBMGvs BOC2.6M
7AngeliñoRBL@SGE14.2MAngeliño has been plagued by inconsistency but is still the Leipzig defender in my opinion.
8Maximilian MittelstädtBSC@TSG6.8MHertha have gone from having the worst defence in the league to keeping two clean sheets in a row so I feel like that their good run is going to end eventually. However, Mittelstädt is still worth a shout since he plays OOP on the wings in the week’s first game.
9Paulo OtávioWOB@B0410.2MOtávio was one of last season's fantasy favourites but I will probably wait and see how Wolfsburg play under Kohfeldt before seriously considering him.
10Niko GießelmannFCU@FCB4.3M




Goalkeepers

1Mark FlekkenSCFvs SGF7.2MThe clean sheet odds were already in Freiburg's favour, but the Covid-19 outbreak pushes it even higher.
2Fabian BredlowVFB@FCA1.5MIt is confirmed that he will start again this week.
3Manuel RiemannBOC@BMG5.7MRiemann saved a penalty in his last Bundesliga game and scored one in the midweek DFB Pokal game against Augsburg. I love an in-form keeper that can do both against a trigger happy Borussia side.
4Robin ZentnerM05@DSC6.1M
5Lukáš HrádeckýB04vs WOB8.9M

Value Rankings

 

RankNamePositionTeamOpponentValueComments
1Lukas KüblerDEFSCFvs SGF4.5MThe other Freiburg wing-back that no really talks about despite him being almost 3x cheaper than Günter.
2Stefan BellDEFM05@DSC5.5MSurely Mainz have learnt from all their defensive errors in the Pokal game?
3Jonathan BurkardtFWDM05@DSC6.7MJust like Onisiwo, Burkardt also had a goal and assist in the Pokal game against Arminia.
4Al GhaddiouiFWDVFB@FCA4.2MIt is a three-way fight between Al Ghaddioui, Faghir and Marmoush for the one striker spot, so I wouldn't bet on either of them starting.
5Amine AdliMIDB04vs WOB8.2M
6Taiwo AwoniyiFWDFCU@FCB8.5MAwoniyi has four goals in his last three matches, but if his goal-scoring run were to end, it would probably be in this game.
7Piero HincapiéDEFB04vs WOB6.6MExpected to deputise for the injured Bakker, and he is the cheapest member of the Leverkusen backline expected to start.
8Marwin HitzGKPBVBvs KOE2.2MKobel's injury status isn't clear, so Hitz could start over him for the next game.
9Mateo KlimowiczMIDVFB@FCA6.7M
10Marius FunkGKPSGF@SCF1MLife is all about taking the chances you get with both hands, but Marius Funk has yet to make a single save in his three starts.
