With Eintracht Frankfurt’s talisman Filip Kostić ruled out for the game against Stuttgart, his deputy Jesper Lindstrøm has another chance to prove his mettle, making him one of our top picks in Bundesliga Fantasy for matchday 21.

1Robert LewandowskiFCBvs RBL22.2M
2Patrick SchickB04@BVB16.3MWith both teams missing key players in defence and leaking goals every game, this could turn out to be a goal-fest, but Bayer Leverkusen is better prepared for it with Wirtz, Diaby, and Schick firing on all cylinders. Whereas Dortmund are missing Haaland.
3Thomas MüllerFCBvs RBL19.8MThere are only four consistent forwards in this game - Lewandowski, Müller, Schick and Haaland. With the Norwegian wunderkind being ruled out for the time being, Müller is a perfect replacement and has an individual fixture in the next 3/4 matchdays.
4Leroy SanéFCBvs RBL16.7MHe might be flying under the radar, but it is worth noting that he has scores of 17,10,13 and 12 in his last four games.
5Jonathan BurkardtM05vs TSG8.2MHoffenheim are in a downward trajectory after losing two games in a row, and they might be missing as many as six first team players against Mainz.
6Rafael Santos BorréSGE@VFB9.5MHe would be ranked much higher if Kostić was available.
7Max KruseWOBvs SGF13.2MKruse might be an even better fantasy pick at Wolfsburg than he was at Union Berlin. I expect him to be more involved now, so hopefully, there are plenty of shots, and key passes to go along with his set-pieces, including penalties.
8Breel EmboloBMG@DSC11.3MArminia is one of Embolo's favorite teams to play against as he has three goals and an assist in just two starts against them.
9Taiwo AwoniyiFCU@FCA8.8M
10Marco ReusBVBvs B0416.3M
BonusBranimir HrgotaSGF@WOB7.8MWolfsburg only improved their attack in the transfer window and with Kohfeldt still at the helm despite being on an 11 game winless streak, I am as skeptical as ever about a Wolfsburg cleansheet let alone a win.




Midfielders

 

RankNameTeamOpponentValueComments
1Jesper LindstrømSGE@VFB8.7MThe last time Kostić wasn't in the squad, Lindstrøm had 14 points without a goal or assist. With a match against the team that has conceded the most shots so far, I am expecting more of the same.
2Jonas HofmannBMG@DSC14.5MLeap of faith here, but I expect Borussia to bounce back in this game.
3Florian WirtzB04@BVB14.2M
4Patrick WimmerDSCvs BMG5.8MOne yellow card away from suspension, but if you have 5.8M to spend on a midfielder then he is still the one to get.
5Joshua KimmichFCBvs RBL17.1MKimmich has been on his fantasy best in the last three games with two assists, 16 key passes, and an average of 11.6 points. Tolisso is also worth a shout since he has scored or assisted in each of his last three games.
6Julian BrandtBVBvs B0412.2M
7Marco RichterBSC@BOC8.2MThe Bochum defence is notoriously bad away from home, and Richter could continue his good run with scores of 11,7 and 19 in his last three games. Also, plays Greuther Fürth next week.
8Vincenzo GrifoSCF@KOE15.1M
9Gerrit HoltmannBOC@BSC5.4MHertha have conceded an average of 2.6 goals in their last five matches, and wingers have scored in all but two of those games. Bochum's most dangerous player could be a good one-week differential with an early game against the Berliners.

Defenders

 

RankNameTeamOpponentValueComments
1Evan NdickaSGE@VFB10.8MOut of all the players on the pitch, surprisingly, Ndicka had the most shots in the last game with four as he was found himself in good situations in the opposition box. Maybe a goal is on the horizon but right now the focus is on cleansheets because Stuttgart haven't scored in their last six Bundesliga games and counting. Lenz is also worth a shout if he takes on the Kostić role for the team.
2Christopher TrimmelFCU@FCA10.7MWith Union's best playmaker Kruse leaving, the team could switch to their old tactic of building the attack through wing-backs. Trimmel has zero assists compared to nine last year, but that could change with a game against FCA and added set-piece duties.
3Aarón MartínM05vs TSG3.5M
4Nico SchlotterbeckSCF@KOE9.4MDespite being a center-back, Nico has outscored Günter in the last 5/6 games.
5Jeremie FrimpongB04@BVB7.9M
6Ramy BensebainiBMG@DSC10.4MWe could finally see Ginter-Elvedi-Friedrich start together, so that should improve the defence a bit at least.
7Niko GießelmannFCU@FCA5.2MIf you can't afford Trimmel, Gießelmann should be just as good.
8Raphaël GuerreiroBVBvs B0413.9MGuerreiro might not be worth the premium anymore. Atleast until he gets a double-digit score which he hasn't done in his last five games.
9Lucas HernandezFCBvs RBL12M
10Borna SosaVFBvs SGE10.7MJust in case Stuttgart finally turns up in this game now that they have an almost full-strength squad.

Value Rankings

1Christopher LenzDEFSGE@VFB7.8MHe might only play for one week.
2Eduard LöwenMIDBOC@BSC6.2MBochum's midfield bonus point generating machine that tends to get scores of 10+ without any returns.
3Anton StachMIDM05vs TSG5.2MStach has scores of 11 and 12 in his last two games but without a goal or an assist.
4Dominique HeintzDEFFCU@FCA2.2MThe cheapest entry into Union's defence against Augsburg.
5Masaya OkugawaMIDDSCvs BMG7.5MOkugawa is the most underrated player in Bundesliga Fantasy right now. He has four goals and scores of 8+ in his last five games but isn't talked about much and only has 2% ownership.
6Maximilian MittelstädtDEFBSCvs BOC7.3MIf you expect the worst away attacking team to draw a blank against Hertha.
7Karim OnisiwoFWDM05vs TSG8.9MIt is always a 50/50 guess on who scores between him and Burkardt.
8Robert AndrichMIDB04@BVB8.4M
9Marvin SchwäbeGKPKOEvs SCF1.3M
