Bundesliga Fantasy is back for the final matchday before yet another international break and unlimited transfers that come with it. This week at the top of our player rankings are Bayern Munich, who have flipped a switch after losing 5-0 to Borussia Mönchengladbach, scoring five goals in each of their two games since then.
|1||Robert Lewandowski||FCB||vs SCF||19.1M||As good as Freiburg are, I think their unbeaten run ends in this match. Bayern have scored five goals in each of their last two games since being thrashed 5-0, and Lewandowski has had a hand in six of those goals.|
|2||Leroy Sané||FCB||vs SCF||15.2M||All he needs to do is start, and the number of shots that and pass to shots that he spams will ensure that he has a good score.|
|3||Wout Weghorst||WOB||vs FCA||15.1M||It can be difficult to trust him after a run of mediocre performances under a bad coach. Still, considering how good Nmecha has been up top under Kohfeldt with two goals in the same number of games (8 shots and 3 KP in total), I think Weghorst can do even better if Covid-19 did not have any severe effect on him.|
|4||Thomas Müller||FCB||vs SCF||16.7M||Müller has been flying under the radar again despite being the only forward to have double-digit scores in the last two games other than Lewandowski.|
|5||Lucas Alario||B04||@BSC||9.5M||Leverkusen bounced back massively after the loss against Wolfsburg with a 4-0 win against Real Betis, with Diaby scoring twice and assisting two goals. This week is another coin toss between him and Alario, but Diaby has never scored or assisted in his three starts against Hertha, whereas Alario has four goals and three assists against them in just six games.|
|6||Andrej Kramarić||TSG||@BOC||15.9M||Kramarić might've scored above 10 points in his last 4/5 games, but playing Bochum away can be extremely tricky considering they've kept a clean sheet in 3/4 home games this season.|
|9||Hamadi Al Ghaddioui||VFB||vs DSC||4.2M||If Sosa finally fires in this game then Al Ghaddioui could be a great differential as he is owned by just 1% of managers.|
|10||Anthony Modeste||KOE||vs FCU||8M||Took an incredible seven shots last week but failed to score.|
|1||Christopher Nkunku||RBL||vs BVB||15.9M||Nkunku is on a mission to prove why he should be in the same conversation as some of the world’s biggest talents, such as Haaland Mbappé with the form he is in. The fact that he has more goals in the Champions League (5) in a group consisting of Manchester City and PSG than the Bundesliga (4) is a testament to his potential.|
|2||Filip Kostić||SGE||@SGF||15.6M||Assuming that he is cleared to play on Sunday. JP Hauge is high on my list of differentials if he doesn’t start because he could be destructive on the left flank against Greuther Fürth in his absence.|
|3||Dominik Szoboszlai||RBL||vs BVB||11.5M||When it comes to fantasy, Nkunku+Szoboszlai is almost as good as Lewandowski+Müller. Especially if Szoboszlai is on every set-piece from corners to penalties.|
|4||Florian Wirtz||B04||@BSC||12.6M||Wirtz was another player that starred in the midweek Europa League win with a goal and assist.|
|5||Jonas Hofmann||BMG||@M05||13.8M||He is in good form and worth a shout for the early game but Mainz usually means trouble when you own attacking players against them.|
|6||Yannick Gerhardt||WOB||vs FCA||6.9M||One could make an argument for Arnold being the best midfielder from Wolfsburg now that he has more attacking freedom. Still, the much cheaper Gerhardt has always stood out as a better long-term option last season when he played in an attacking role.|
|7||Philipp Förster||VFB||vs DSC||5.7M||Expected to play OOP as a striker against the team that is second for most shots conceded so far after Stuttgart.|
|10||Joshua Kimmich||FCB||vs SCF||16.8M||If you own Kimmich, it might be time to let go and consider other options because he is simply not generating enough attacking bonus points and hasn't contributed even once in Bayern's last 24 goals across seven games.|
|1||Paulo Otávio||WOB||vs FCA||10.2M||The new manager bounce is real. What is the proof? Wolfsburg went from having the best defence in the Bundesliga to conceding in eight games in a row across all competitions to not conceding a single goal from open play against two dangerous attacking teams (Leverkusen and RB Salzburg) under Kohfeldt.
Fun fact: Leverkusen only had one shot on target in the entire game against Wolfsburg last week. It was the penalty that Alario missed at 90+6'
|3||Alphonso Davies||FCB||vs SCF||14.2M||The best Bayern defender in fantasy, but an early sub is always a looming threat considering he has started in each of their last three games.|
|5||Silvan Widmer||M05||vs BMG||7.6M|
|6||Borna Sosa||VFB||vs DSC||10.8M||Sosa has blanked in his last four games, but he could have a great game on both ends against the worst attack in the league. Especially with the towering Al Ghaddioui (closest thing to Saša) to spam crosses to.|
|7||Ramy Bensebaini||BMG||@M05||10.5M||If Borussia switch to four at the back, Bensebaini might be better than Scally with his spot-kicks.|
|8||Christian Günter||SCF||@FCB||13M||Günter could certainly get some points to his name like Gießelmann did last week, but the Bayern team after they've been thrashed is the most dangerous Bayern.|
|9||Angeliño||RBL||vs BVB||14.3M||Dortmund might be struggling, but Leipzig’s defence has been so bad that they've conceded the most goals after four UCL games (13). There is also the fact that Leipzig haven't beaten Dortmund in the last 10 Bundesliga games, which makes me feel that they won't keep a clean sheet over here.|
|10||Danilo Soares||BOC||vs TSG||6.5M|
|1||Manuel Riemann||BOC||vs TSG||5.6M||This could be one of those games where he saves a ton of shots.|
|3||Robin Zentner||M05||vs BMG||6.1M||If you want a keeper for a week that rotates with Riemann, Flekken and Bredlow.|
|4||Mark Flekken||SCF||@FCB||7.2M||Flekken hasn't scored below five points in any games this season, so there isn't any reason to doubt why he can't do it against Bayern.|
|5||Fabian Bredlow||VFB||vs DSC||1.6M||50/50 that he starts.|
|1||Joe Scally||DEF||BMG||@M05||3M||Still the best budget enabler by far.|
|2||Jonathan Burkardt||FWD||M05||vs BMG||7M|
|3||Sebastian Bornauw||DEF||WOB||vs FCA||6.5M||The cheapest defender from Wolfsburg and has set-piece threat that could come into play against Augsburg.|
|4||Robin Hack||DEF||DSC||@VFB||5.5M||Stuttgart are missing many key players in defence such as Kempf, Mavropanos and Müller so Arminia's Hack could be a great boom or bust differential pick considering the amount of shots that he takes every game.|
|7||Rafael Santos Borré||FWD||SGE||@SCF||7.8M||I am not too high on Borré this week, considering he has scored just once this season, and he might struggle even more if Kostić misses out.|
|8||Danny Blum||FWD||BOC||vs TSG||3.5M||The man who has ruined Frankfurt's and Borussia's clean sheets in his last two games.|
|9||Kevin Akpoguma||DEF||TSG||@BOC||5.5M||Akpoguma is an expert at getting jammy clean sheets and attacking returns.|
|10||Marius Funk||GKP||SGF||vs SGE||1M|
