Erling Haaland is scoreless in his last 237 minutes, but we explain why he is still one of our highest rankings forwards this week with a game against Stuttgart in our Bundesliga Fantasy player rankings for matchday 29.


Forwards

 

RankNameTeamOpponentValueComments
1Robert LewandowskiFCBvs FCA24.4MBayern are averaging 3.4 goals at home against Augsburg in their last five games, so you might want to hold onto Lewandowski even though he has blanked in his last two games.
2Erling HaalandBVB@VFB18.5MVFB-BVB tends to be a high-scoring fixture with at least three goals in the last 14 games dating back to 2013. So despite going scoreless for 237 minutes, if I had to back Haaland to break his goal drought, it would be in this game.

Plus, he gives you star flexibility this week if you own Lewandowski and Pléa.
3Alassane PléaBMG@SGF15.5MThis game could go either way because Fürth have done well to hold both Freiburg and Frankfurt to 0-0 draws in the last two games. He should still get plenty of bonus even if Fürth make it difficult to score, so he is a solid choice for the third forward spot.
4Marco ReusBVB@VFB16.6MThe Mercedes-Benz Arena is one of Reus' favorite grounds to play in. He has failed to score or assist in just two of his nine Bundesliga away games there in his entire career.
5Thomas MüllerFCBvs FCA20.4MListed Müller but leaning more towards Gnabry as a differential against a team that doesn't have the best fullbacks.
6Anthony ModesteKOEvs M0510.5M
7Moussa DiabyB04@BOC15.6M
8Lukas NmechaWOBvs DSC8.8MNmecha has looked hungry for goals ever since he returned from injury, and every game is a chance to prove that he should be Germany's #9 for the world cup. Arminia have been poor, and even though they have conceded only about half the goals as Fürth, they are close to overtaking them for shots conceded. In a big relegation six-pointer, two full starts should be enough for Nmecha to start firing now.
9Omar MarmoushVFBvs BVB4.5MHe has been shooting at free will lately and is quite easily the best forward on budget, but he only has a goal and assist to show for it in his last six games despite his high floor.
10Stevan JovetićBSCvs FCU10.7MThese are two teams trying to break free from bad form, but Hertha have to win this derby game at any cost, and Jovetić is one to watch if they are to score.
BonusPatrick SchickB04@BOC16.3MSchick had 20 goals in 21 games before injury but it is likely that he gets subbed off early in this game.




Midfielders

 

RankNameTeamOpponentValueComments
1Christopher NkunkuRBLvs TSG19.6MNine goals and six assists in his last 11 games are Lewandowski+Müller numbers.
2Jesper LindstrømSGEvs SCF10MMuch more consistent than Kostić and has more returns lately too.
3Filip KostićSGEvs SCF18.3M
4Joshua KimmichFCBvs FCA18.6MHis numbers are slightly inflated because of his four assists, but three shots and two key passes against Villareal make me think he is due another good score this week.
5Lars StindlBMG@SGF13.1MLooked better against Mainz than he has for most of the season, with two shots and two key passes. Stindl could be a good differential this week, especially when you consider that he had a hattrick of assists in the reverse fixture. Worth noting that he is always at a risk of being subbed early around the 60 minute mark.
6Chris FührichVFBvs BVB6.4MFührich has put up decent numbers despite playing in midfield rather than on the wing. His being pushed up this week because of Kalajdžić's absence should certainly help.
7Patrick WimmerDSC@WOB6.6MAugsburg managed to score three goals against Wolfsburg, so I wouldn't count Arminia out.
8Giovanni ReynaBVB@VFB10.7M
9Vincenzo GrifoSCF@SGE16.5M
10Maximilian ArnoldWOBvs DSC13.4MAlso considered Demirbay, but he might play deeper this week with Paulinho taking over the #10 role.

Defenders

 

RankNameTeamOpponentValueComments
1Ramy BensebainiBMG@SGF10.8MOver the last three matchdays, Fürth have only scored one goal while accumulating 1.63 xG - both worst in the league.
2Raphaël GuerreiroBVB@VFB14.3MSame as last week, I am not expecting Dortmund to keep a cleansheet, but there is plenty of attacking potential.
3Dayot UpamecanoFCBvs FCA13.3MA major doubt if he starts, so Süle is more nailed, but you will have to hope that he plays as a right-back for a big score.
4Nico SchlotterbeckSCF@SGE10.4MHe dropped his worst score last week against Bayern Munich (-2), but it is easy to forget that he is the highest-scoring defender in the game for a reason.
5AngeliñoRBLvs TSG15.5MAveraging 10.75 points over the last four games compared to Gvardiol's 6.75 points.
6Borna SosaVFBvs BVB11.7MNot essential this week, especially now that Kalajdžić is out. Still, worth a shout as a differential.
7Evan NdickaSGEvs SCF11.MTwo cleansheets in his last two games, but the streak will probably end this week.
8Aarón MartínM05@KOE3.9M
9Mitchell BakkerB04@BOC6.2M
10Marvin PlattenhardtBSCvs FCU5.7MIf Hertha have to score, they will rely on two things: Jovetić and Plattenhardt's set-pieces.




Goalkeepers

 

RankNameTeamOpponentValueComments
1Yann SommerBMG@SGF10.2MThe most in-form keeper in the Bundesliga right now with an average of 6.3 saves per game and scores of 13, 15, and 9 in his last three games.
2Andreas LindeSGFvs BMG5.1MLinde averages 3.71 shots per game since he joined Fürth. He has only played seven games so far, but that is higher than any other keeper in the league, with Trapp coming a close second (3.7).
3Mark FlekkenSCF@SGE8.3MFlekken conceded four goals against Bayern but could still get five points thanks to the six shots he saved.
4Kevin TrappSGEvs SCF9.8M
5Lukáš HrádeckýB04@BOC6.1MThe highest-scoring player in the reverse fixture with 15 points, a cleansheet and seven saves.

Value Rankings

1Anton StachMIDM05@KOE6.2MStach had 13 points in the last game without any return. He is what we expected Wimmer to be right now.
2Omar RichardsDEFFCBvs FCA6.5MLikely to fill in for Davies, who is a doubt, and Hernandez, who will be rested for the second leg against Villareal.
3Frederik RønnowGKPFCU@BSC2.7MWill play for another week since Luthe is out.
4Ansgar KnauffFWDSGEvs SCF3MDespite being a forward playing as a wing-back, Knauff has done great so far, generating lots of bonus points and also scored a great goal midweek against Barcelona.
5Niko GießelmannDEFFCU@BSC5.4MThree Union defenders were in the top six for points among defenders for MD12 when both these sides met. That being said, they are yet to beat Hertha away in the Bundesliga.
6Jonathan BurkardtFWDM05@KOE9.1M
7Marvin SchwäbeGKPKOEvs M051.3M
8Jérôme RoussillonDEFWOBvs DSC8.5MAs bad as the Wolfsburg defence is, Arminia have only scored once in their last five Bundesliga games.
9Florian KainzMIDKOEvs M059.3M
10Georginio RutterFWDTSG@RBL8.2M
