Forwards

 

RankNameTeamOpponentValueComments
1Robert LewandowskiFCB@SGE23.3MMakes that seven games in a row with scores of 12+ for Lewandowski. Easily the best star pick for this week.
2Anthony ModesteKOE@SGF10MModeste is quite possibly the most underrated forward in Bundesliga Fantasy right now. The league's most dangerous player from headers has scored in all but one of his last seven starts and now faces a Fürth team that has conceded the most goals (61) and set-pieces (14), so he could be trouble in the air again.
3Leroy SanéFCB@SGE17.3MWith Müller out, Sané is the clear second-choice when it comes to Bayern forwards since Gnabry and Coman will be utilized as wing-backs.
4Marco ReusBVB@FCA17MOnly Reus can challenge Lewandowski form-wise with a brace in each of his last two games to go along with three assists in the last match, but he is a slight injury doubt for this game.
5Andrej KramarićTSGvs VFB16.2MThere isn't any clearcut forward from Hoffenheim even though Kramarić seems like the safest pick. He hasn't been at his best but adding him to your team gets you a forward with individual fixtures for the next three weeks.
6Moussa DiabyB04vs DSC14.8MDespite their decent numbers defensively (thanks to Ortega), only Stuttgart and Fürth have conceded more shots than Arminia. This is another opportunity for Diaby to get another good score by taking lots of shots in Schick's absence.
7André SilvaRBL@BOC17.2M
8Max KruseWOB@BMG13.6MBorussia haven't kept a cleansheet in their last 11 games since November, and even though Wolfsburg themselves have been poor, they could sneak a win in this game.
9Jonathan BurkardtM05@FCU8.7MEven though Burkardt hasn't scored in his last five games, he has averaged 8.2 points in those games and has the highest xG (3.03), so it is only time till he scores.
10Ihlas BebouTSGvs VFB9.1M




Midfielders

 

RankNameTeamOpponentValueComments
1Christopher NkunkuRBL@BOC18.6M
2Patrick WimmerDSC@B046.5MThis might seem controversial, but Leverkusen have given up at least two goals in each of their last three games, and Wimmer is one of the most in-form midfielders currently with a goal or an assist in each of his last three games. I expect this to be an open game with lots of opportunities for Wimmer to accumulate bonus points.
3Jonas HofmannBMGvs WOB15.4MThis game feels like a relegation six-pointer with how bad both teams have been, but as long as Wolfsburg continue playing with such a weakened backline, I am ready to take the chance against them, and Hofmann is the best bet with an average of 15.8 points in his last five home matches.
4Florian WirtzB04vs DSC14.7M
5Jamal MusialaFCB@SGE12.8MIf the predicted lineups are right, he will play as an attacking midfielder and not a defensive one which gives his upside a massive boost.
6Vincenzo GrifoSCFvs BSC15.6MHertha have conceded the most goals (13) and xGA (12.3) over the last four matchdays. Even though Grifo hasn't been a popular pick lately, he has quietly accumulated scores of 7+ in his last 6/7 games. He could add a goal or assist to his tally this week against a team that has conceded the most penalties and is third for most set-piece goals conceded this season.
7Christoph BaumgartnerTSGvs VFB12MRaum is always worth a shout as he goes up against Stenzel, but Baumgartner has been more effective in the last two games by taking more shots as well as creating more chances.
8Dani OlmoRBL@BOC12.6MOlmo shoots a ton in almost every match he plays, and his 17 point haul with a goal and two assists in just 30 minutes was a glimpse of his capabilities. That being said, he played 80 minutes in the Europa League game and could be a rotation risk.
9Amine AdliB04vs DSC8.6M
10Jesper LindstrømSGEvs FCB9.2MFrankfurt have a habit of beating Bayern Munich at least once every season, and I wouldn't rule their midfielders out. Kostić isn't on this list, but he is always worth a shout, especially when considering that his season-best score of 17 points came in the reverse fixture.

Defenders

 

RankNameTeamOpponentValueComments
1Nico SchlotterbeckSCFvs BSC10.1MHe has been the most reliable defender in Bundesliga Fantasy for a while now and also tops the form ranking among defenders, which makes sense.
2Aarón MartínM05@FCU3.8MThis week pits the league's joint-best defence M05 against a Union side that has failed to score in three games since Kruse left. Left-back Martín has been excellent for the team in defence as well as attack and will be high on confidence after his first goal in the Bundesliga last week.
3Raphaël GuerreiroBVB@FCA14.2MAnother injury doubt for this week, and we will only get more news after the deadline, so he is a skip for me.
4AngeliñoRBL@BOC14.6MWith Gvardiol being suspended, Angeliño is an easy pivot if you want a defender with an individual fixture this week.
5Benno SchmitzKOE@SGF4.7MIt took 17 matchdays for FC Köln to keep their first cleansheet, but the defence has improved massively since then, keeping two cleansheets in their last three games against teams like Frankfurt and Freiburg. Also, watch out for Baumgart's most effective gameplan of having Schmitz cross balls into the box for Modeste, which could be decisive against the worst team in the league when it comes to defending in the air.
6Jeremie FrimpongB04vs DSC7.9M
7Benjamin HübnerTSGvs VFB3.7MIt is 50/50 between him and Kadeřábek. Replace him with Sosa if you think Stuttgart will be able to end their eight-game winless streak in this match.
8Benjamin PavardFCB@SGE12.3M
9Borna SosaVFB@TSG11M
10Ramy BensebainiBMGvs WOB10.7MOnly Bensebaini can get 19 points, and then -7 the next week and it is hard to predict which side he will end up on this week.




Goalkeepers

 

RankNameTeamOpponentValueComments
1Mark FlekkenSCFvs BSC7.9MEven though Flekken has been underwhelming, he is worth keeping for another week since he plays Hertha.
2Robin ZentnerM05@FCU6.9MUnion have barely been getting shots on target so there isn't much to save for Zentner, but his cleansheet odds are high.
3Stefan OrtegaDSC@B048.6MLeague's most in-form keeper against a team that loves shooting whenever they get an opportunity? I am expecting him to make a lot of saves again.
4Marvin SchwäbeKOE@SGF1.1MCheapest starting keeper + plays against the worst attack in the league.
5Manuel RiemannBOCvs RBL6M

Value Rankings

 

RankNamePositionTeamOpponentValueComments
1Georginio RutterFWDTSGvs VFB8.5MFrom Hoffenheim's forward trio, Rutter tends to get the most bonus points for shots.
2Chris FührichMIDVFB@TSG5.6MFührich has been Stuttgart's most electric player lately and has been unlucky to score in the last few games despite having a decent number of shots on target.
3Lucas AlarioFWDB04vs DSC9.2MIt is easy to dismiss Alario as a backup forward, but he has better numbers than most first-choice strikers with 38 goals and 14 assists in 115 Bundesliga games.
4Masaya OkugawaMIDDSC@B047.6M
5Andreas LindeGKPSGFvs KOE4.8MThis game could end 0-0 or 1-1 it is hard to say.
6Karim OnisiwoFWDM05@FCU9.4M
7Florian KainzMIDKOE@SGF9.2MIt is easier to pick players when they have a good fixture than when you expect them to turn their form around, and let's hope that holds true for Kainz this week.
8Anton StachMIDM05@FCU5.6MThe best enabler under 6M.
9Nils PetersenFWDSCFvs BSC7.1M
10Niko GießelmannDEFFCUvs M055.1M
