Bayern Munich, RB Leipzig and SC Freiburg might’ve been at the receiving end of some embarrassing losses last week. Still, we expect their players to come good again in our Bundesliga Fantasy player rankings for matchday 13.
|1||Robert Lewandowski||FCB||vs DSC||19.6M|
|2||Thomas Müller||FCB||vs DSC||17.2M||Müller deserves more respect for averaging more fantasy points (13.6) and having more goal involvements (9) in the last five Bundesliga games than Lewandowski (12.6 points, seven goal involvements).|
|3||Andrej Kramarić||TSG||@SGF||15.8M||Hoffenheim have a terrible away record with just one win in six games but opponents Greuther Fürth are awful regardless of whether they play at home or away and are winless even after 12 games.
Ilhas Bebou is also worth a shout as a differential since he loves scoring against bottom feeders.
|4||Leroy Sané||FCB||vs DSC||15.7M||Sané is in a bit of a slump, but I am willing to give him another chance in a game where Bayern should dominate.|
|5||Jonathan Burkardt||M05||@VFB||7.5M||Double digit scores in each of his last four games, and with a matchup against Stuttgart, who have conceded the most shots, I think he will extend his run to five games.|
|6||Patrick Schick||B04||@RBL||14.6M||I don't think he is fully fit to play the entire game but is still incredibly tempting against a Leipzig defence missing both their center-backs in Orban and Simakan, goalkeeper Gulácsi and possibly Gvardiol as well.|
|7||Taiwo Awoniyi||FCU||@SGE||8.8M||Although I've recommended Awoniyi because he is Union's talisman and has eight goals in 12 games, a bit of research has revealed that Max Kruse has a brace in each of his last two games against Frankfurt, which is incredible.
Both strikers have great upside, especially if Hinteregger is out for this game.
|8||Anthony Modeste||KOE||vs BMG||8.4M|
|10||Marco Reus||BVB||@WOB||15.2M||Reus is rarely ever considered as a serious pick in fantasy because he is listed as a forward rather than a midfielder, but he has scored below 7 points just once this season and is Dortmund's best shot at scoring goals in Haaland's absence.|
|Bonus||Lukas Nmecha||WOB||vs BVB||9.2M||Nmecha has a goal in all but one game under Kohfeldt but Dortmund's defence should receive a significant boost this week with the return of Hummels.|
|1||Christopher Nkunku||RBL||vs B04||16.2M||I can overlook his one point performance against Hoffenheim after his brace and assist against Club Brugge in the Champions League (hoping for a similar performance against Leverkusen!)|
|2||Jonas Hofmann||BMG||@KOE||14.1M||I am skeptical of Borussia's away form even though Koln are winless in their last five games. That being said, Hofmann is in the form of his life and should be considered regardless.|
|3||Filip Kostić||SGE||vs FCU||16M||Managers doubt Kostić but he keeps performing even when you least expect it. If you own Kostić this week, you will have the star flexibility of Hofmann-Goretzka-Kostić-Nkunku this week so you won't have to worry about your fixture proof midfielder raining on your parade with a one point performance again.|
|4||Leon Goretzka||FCB||vs DSC||15.4M||As long as Sabitzer doesn't start alongside him again, I wouldn't be too worried about him not being attacking enough.|
|5||Florian Wirtz||B04||@RBL||12.8M||Prevailing wisdom says that Wirtz has a tough fixture but his 13 point haul with no return against Bochum and two assists against Celtic in the Europa League makes me think otherwise.|
|6||Lars Stindl||BMG||@KOE||13.7M||Stindl is a pure high risk, high reward pick. He either gets subbed off at HT or plays a match winning performance for the team.
If you are planning to bring him in, you should also know that he is one yellow card away from suspension.
|7||Daniel Caligiuri||FCA||@BSC||9.8M||Caligiuri will be underowned against Hertha who have conceded the most set-piece goals so far with eight and could be incredibly dangerous from his set-pieces.|
|9||Vincenzo Grifo||SCF||@BOC||13.7M||Wirtz' performance against Bochum will certainly tempt some to bring Grifo in but there is a stark contrast in how the Bochum defence performs home and away. They've conceded the least goals at home with three but the second-highest goals away from home with 16.|
|10||Jean-Paul Boëtius||M05||@VFB||7.4M||Boëtius has been in a serious slump this season with zero goals and assists despite being an attack-minded midfielder. But if he had to finally get a goal involvement then I think it might be in this game.|
|1||Alphonso Davies||FCB||vs DSC||14.6M||Bayern haven't kept a cleansheet in their last six games across all competitions and I don't expect it in this game either but I would hate to miss out on a Davies haul like his 19 pointer without a return against Freiburg.|
|2||Christian Günter||SCF||@BOC||12.7M||The best away defence against the best home defence? This game might be a 0-0 after all.|
|3||Kevin Akpoguma||TSG||@SGF||5.8M||Akpoguma does a bit of everything for the team. Win duels, score goals, take lots of shots and create chances. He is what we thought Sosa would be this season and is an extremely underrated pick.|
|4||Raphaël Guerreiro||BVB||@WOB||14.6M||He is doubtful so it is best to wait for more news till the deadline.|
|6||Silvan Widmer||M05||@VFB||7.7M||Stuttgart have created a grand total of zero big chances in their last 4 games and although Mainz haven't kept a cleansheet in their last seven games, I am willing to punt on a defender from the early game.|
|7||Jeremie Frimpong||B04||@RBL||8.2M||Outside chance for a cleansheet this week.|
|8||Paulo Otávio||WOB||vs BVB||10.6M|
|10||Borna Sosa||VFB||vs M05||10.9M||I certainly don't expect Stuttgart to turn their winless form around in one game but stranger things have happened.|
|2||Manuel Riemann||BOC||vs SCF||5.6M|
|3||Lukáš Hrádecký||B04||@RBL||9.5M||This game could end either way but you can always expect lots of save points from Hrádecký.|
|5||Pavao Pervan||WOB||vs BVB||1M||The best out of all the enabler keepers.|
|2||Maximilian Mittelstädt||DEF||BSC||vs FCA||7.1M||If you can put Mittelstädt's blank last week behind you, he could actually be a great differential pick for the upcoming weeks with games against Augsburg, Stuttgart and Arminia.|
|4||Dennis Geiger||MID||TSG||@SGF||6.2M||Defensive midfielders aren't exactly the best picks when it comes to Bundesliga Fantasy but thanks to DNL Fantasy, we now know that defensive midfielders are averaging 12.6 points in the last eight matches against Greuther Fürth.|
|5||André Hahn||MID||FCA||@BSC||8.4M||Now that he is expected to play OOP as a striker again, he is a serious mid-range midfield option.|
|6||Florian Kainz||MID||KOE||vs BMG||8.5M|
|7||Erhan Mašović||DEF||BOC||vs SCF||1.4M||Bochum's cheapest defender but one yellow away from suspension.|
|8||Eduard Löwen||MID||BOC||vs SCF||5.8M||He is fairly consistent with attacking bonus points for someone that isn't involved too often in goals. Surprisingly, Freiburg have the highest expected goals allowed (xGA) with 4.41 and shots conceded over the last two weeks with 42, so he could have a high floor game again.|
|9||Josep Martínez||GKP||RBL||vs B04||1M|
|10||Marvin Schwäbe||GKP||KOE||vs BMG||1M||Other than Funk, Schwäbe might stick around in the first XI for the longest since Horn is out for the Hinrunde or till MD17.|
|Bonus||Omar Marmoush||FWD||VFB||vs M05||3.6M||I feel like if someone had to bust my Mainz cleansheet for the eighth time in a row then it would be this guy.|
