While Robert Lewandowski is an easy play in Bundesliga Fantasy this week, Thomas Müller is just as much of a lock in our player rankings for matchday 20.

1Robert LewandowskiFCB@BSC21.9M
2Patrick SchickB04vs FCA16.2MSchick is averaging an incredible five shots per game in his last four matches to go along with his four goals, setting his floor really high and he has great upside against an injury-hit Augsburg team this week.
3Thomas MüllerFCB@BSC19.4MMüller is having the best ever season of his career, and if you don't have him yet, you are missing out.
4Erling HaalandBVB@TSG19MHaaland keeps breaking Bundesliga scoring records, and you would back him to score in this game, but the fact that Hoffenheim are unbeaten in their last seven home games while conceding just five goals makes me feel a bit sceptical especially when you consider Hoffenheim's tendency to turn up against big teams at home.
5Rafael Santos BorréSGEvs DSC9.4MDespite having a goal involvement in his last six games (4G, 4A, 10.1PPG), Borré has been overlooked and could be a good differential with 2% ownership in the early game against DSC, who conceded two goals against Fürth who hadn't scored in their last three games. That being said, he is only worth considering over the template forward line of Lewandowski-Haaland-Müller if Kostić starts.
6Leroy SanéFCB@BSC16.3M
7André SilvaRBLvs WOB16.9MSilva has certainly found his wings under Tedesco with five goals in the same number of games, and he could certainly score against the team in the worst form in the league (Wolfsburg) but he is just another transfer waiting to happen as he plays Bayern next week.
8Jonathan BurkardtM05@SGF8.1M
9Andrej KramarićTSGvs BVB15.9MMost forwards tend to have their best goal-scoring records against relegation fodders but not Kramarić. He boasts the best record of his Bundesliga career against BVB with seven goals and an assist in just nine games against them.
10Anthony ModesteKOE@BOC9.5MJust shots are enough to give Modeste a good score, but Bochum at home and away are two completely different teams. At home, Bochum have conceded the least goals with six behind Mainz's five. Away from home, they've conceded 21 goals which is the most after Fürth (36) and Hertha (26). There is no bigger example of their dominance at home than the fact that they lost 1-0 away against Mainz but managed to beat them 3-1 at home just three days later.
BonusMax KruseFCU@BMG12.8MA one-week punt against a team that concedes shots by the bucket loads?




Midfielders

 

RankNameTeamOpponentValueComments
1Filip KostićSGEvs DSC17.4MThe one player you have to have from the early game.
2Christopher NkunkuRBLvs WOB17.5MWolfsburg have gone from being a top three defence in the league to punching bags in just a few months, and Nkunku should thrive in this game.
3Jesper LindstrømSGEvs DSC8.5MLindstrøm is the best sub-10M midfielder by far right now, and don't be afraid to double up on him and Kostić with games against Arminia, Stuttgart and Wolfsburg coming up.
4Florian WirtzB04vs FCA13.9M
5Patrick WimmerDSC@SGE5.4MWimmer has scores of 10 and 13 in his last two games without any returns. That is what most midfielders manage after scoring.
6Grischa PrömelFCU@BMG6.8MThe head coach's instructions to attack the opposition box is certainly working, and if you ever had a doubt about his goal-scoring credentials, he has now scored in three consecutive games and now faces BMG, who have conceded 20 shots on average in their last six games while being in the top five for most shots conceded in 5/6 of those matchdays.
7Vincenzo GrifoSCFvs VFB15MWith Jeong and Sallai possibly not starting, Grifo might have to shoulder even more responsibility to create chances for the team.
8Julian BrandtBVB@TSG12.2M
9Amine AdliB04vs FCA8.1M
10Jude BellinghamBVB@TSG13.7MBellingham isn't your conventional Bundesliga Fantasy pick but has been highly active in the box for Dortmund: scoring goals, creating them, taking shots, etc. This season, he is the team's highest-scoring midfielder in fantasy and is averaging 11.2 points in his last five starts.

Defenders

 

RankNameTeamOpponentValueComments
1Christian GünterSCFvs VFB13M
2Mitchel BakkerB04vs FCA6.4MOn a yellow card warning, but he could be a solid play with cleansheet + attacking upside in this game. I selected him over Frimpong because @FPLShy pointed out that he has a better Expected Goal Involvement (xGI) over the last three games.
3Nico SchlotterbeckSCFvs VFB9.2MLast week's thrashing made it clear that Nico is essential to SCF's defence, and with a game against Stuttgart, who haven't scored in four games, I think he could continue his good run of 11.6 points per game in his last five starts before injury.
4Joško GvardiolRBLvs WOB10.7MI was pretty confident of Leipzig's cleansheet last week, but after watching them get dominated by Stuttgart and Gulácsi having to make eight saves to bail them out, I am a bit more sceptical this week.
5Aarón MartínM05@SGF3.5MHis set-pieces and overall involvement in the attack give him a slight edge over Widmer. That and the fact that he is half the price too.
6Raphaël GuerreiroBVB@TSG13.9MGuerreiro has been less than impressive in the last few games, and with Brandt and Bellingham taking over most of the set-pieces, it might be better to spend the money on your midfield and defence.
7Armel Bella KotchapBOCvs KOE3.6MKotchap does a bit of everything on the pitch for Bochum, which is why he racks up so many bonus points and has scores of nine and eight in his last two games without keeping a cleansheet. Given Bochum's defensive record at home, he could finally get one this week against FC Köln.
8Benjamin PavardFCB@BSC12.5MPavard has been putting a solid shift for the champions, keeping three cleansheets in his last five games while averaging 10 points. With a match against Hertha, who haven't scored in their last two encounters against the Bavarians, he could add another cleansheet to his name.
9Evan NdickaSGEvs DSC10.5M
10Bastian OczipkaFCU@BMG2.3MGießelmann is the defender with the most goal involvements this season (6) but Oczipka has been incredible in his absence and could hold on to his spot for the next two games against Borussia and Augsburg.




Goalkeepers

1Mark FlekkenSCFvs VFB7.6MFun fact: Flekken has the highest save percentage of any keeper this season (80.3%), with Gulácsi coming in second at 73.8%.
2Manuel RiemannBOCvs KOE6.2MThis game feels like 1-0 either way.
3Yann SommerBMGvs FCU9.6MSommer saved 12 shots last week and two penalties to break the all-time Bundesliga Fantasy record for the highest score by a keeper with 24 points. He is now averaging 15 points in his last three games. Is this what a purple patch for a goalkeeper looks like?
4Robin ZentnerM05@SGF6.5M
5Sascha BurchertSGFvs M054.2MIt might come as a surprise to some, but since he won his spot in the starting XI back, Burchert has been the team's best player.

Value Rankings

1Omar RichardsDEFFCB@BSCC7.1MHernandez could steal a start, but Richards still has a better chance to start.
2Marvin SchwäbeGKPKOE@BOC1.2MThe good news for Schwäbe owners is that he is the undisputed #1 for FC Köln now.
3Masaya OkugawaMIDDSC@SGE7.3MFew might've noticed, but Okugawa has scored in each of his last four games just like a certain Robert Lewandowski.
4Benjamin HenrichsDEFRBL@WOB7.3M
5Ermedin DemirovićFWDSCFvs VFB8.9MOne of Freiburg's most highly-rated talents, and I am excited to see how well he does now that he finally gets a start. Certainly one to watch.
6Miloš PantovićFWDBOCvs KOE3.9MHe only seems to score extra-ordinary goals but is still Bochum's most dangerous player.
7Andreas VoglsammerFWDFCU@BMG6.5M
8Joe ScallyDEFBMGvs FCU2.2MThe best enabler in the game is back, but Borussia have been far from good.
9Branimir HrgotaFWDSGFvs M057.6M
10Florian KainzMIDKOE@BOC8.9M
