Bundesliga Fantasy returns for the final matchday before another International Break and subsequent wildcard. This week is all about the standout fixtures such as Köln and Leipzig taking on promoted sides Fürth and Bochum but also about the boogie teams. Check out our player rankings for this week, including some differentials that could boost your rank before unlimited transfers.
Boogie team matchups:
- Köln vs Greuther Fürth – The last time the Billy Goats lost a game against the Clover Leaves was in 2007 and they are unbeaten in six games across all competitions against them since then – longer than against any other Bundesliga team.
- Hertha vs Freiburg – BSC are unbeaten in their last five Bundesliga games at home against SCF.
- Stuttgart vs Hoffenheim – VFB haven’t lost in each of their last four Bundesliga home games to TSG.
- Wolfsburg vs Borussia Mönchengladbach – The Wolves are unbeaten in their last 16 Bundesliga home games against the Foals (a club record).
- Bayern Munich vs Eintracht Frankfurt – The Eagles have conceded more goals and lost more games against the Bavarians than any other team.
- RB Leipzig vs Bochum – The Bulls only have a longer winning streak against Augsburg (6) than Bochum (5).
|1||Robert Lewandowski||FCB||vs SGE||18.2M|
|2||Anthony Modeste||KOE||vs SGF||7.4M||Modeste is currently 3rd for total points among forwards and is averaging 10 points a game so far. He should be able to match his average points this week just by spamming shots against Fürth.|
|3||Andrej Kramarić||TSG||@VFB||15.2M||Kramarić has been flying under the radar, and I feel like he has a big game in him against a struggling Stuttgart side that barely managed to edge a draw against Bochum despite conceding 15 shots.|
|4||Patrik Schick||B04||@DSC||14.2M||It might come as a surprise for some, but Arminia are currently at the top for most shots conceded, and I think Schick could be a great differential here.|
|5||Thomas Müller||FCB||vs SGE||16.2M||Immune from the "Nagelsmann roulette" that could strike Leroy Sané this week.|
|6||Emil Forsberg||RBL||vs BOC||11.5M||Forsberg is one of the most inconsistent players in Bundesliga Fantasy along with Grifo but he has a tendency to do well in games with a lot of goals.|
|7||Marco Reus||BVB||vs FCA||13.7M||Perfect Haaland replacement? The potential is there, but the form isn't.|
|8||Yussuf Poulsen||RBL||vs BOC||10.9M||I admit that he isn't one for big scores but could chip in with a goal or two for the team with the most goals from set-pieces against the team that is in the top 3 for goals conceded from that situation.|
|9||Wout Weghorst||WOB||vs BMG||15.3M||As much as I would love to hype Weghorst against Borussia's B team defence, his 0 shot performance against Hoffenheim - A team that is known for conceding lots of shots - puts me off.|
|10||Omar Marmoush||VFB||vs TSG||3.6M||TSG tend to beat big teams like Bayern, BVB, Wolfsburg, etc, then lose to smaller teams like Schalke and Augsburg. I wouldn't be surprised if Stuttgart manage to score over here.|
|1||Christopher Nkunku||RBL||vs BOC||14.9M||If Nkunku isn't in your team this week after getting 28 points against Hertha, you are playing the game wrong.|
|2||Florian Wirtz||B04||@DSC||12M||Does Wirtz need rest? Yes, he does. But when he is averaging a goal or an assist at an unreal rate of every 45.6 minutes for Leverkusen this season, even 60 minutes would be enough for him to do some serious damage.|
|3||Florian Kainz||KOE||vs SGF||7.8M||The only midfielder worth picking from the early game.|
|4||Joshua Kimmich||FCB||vs SGE||16.5M||Kimmich is currently the midfielder with the most points (70) and ownership (53%), so not having him is just a red arrow waiting to happen.|
|5||Christoph Baumgartner||TSG||@VFB||11.7M||Only template players such as Kimmich (12.25), Wirtz (15) and Nkunku (11.5) have averaged more points per game than Baumgartner (9.5) in the last four weeks, and this could possibly be a ceiling game for him considering how many shots Stuttgart concede every game.|
|7||Julian Brandt||BVB||vs FCA||10.1M||Brandt in his preferred position as an advanced #8 or #10 is criminally underrated and could be worth a shout as a punt before unlimited transfers hit.|
|8||Ridle Baku||WOB||vs BMG||11.8M|
|9||Chris Führich||VFB||vs TSG||5.5M||Touted as the next Marco Reus, Führich scored 13 goals and assisted 2 in 34 matches for Paderborn in the 2. Bundesliga last season. He would've been a popular pick at the start of the season if it wasn't for injury, and I think he holds the most promise out of all Stuttgart midfielders (If you expect them to cause an upset).|
|10||Filip Kostić||SGE||@FCB||14.8M||There hasn't been much talk about Kostić at all, but he has been quietly scoring over nine points in each of his last four games, and even if Frankfurt lose over here, he could get some points to his name.|
|1||Angeliño||RBL||vs BOC||14.1M||It was a long time coming since we saw Angeliño have a good game with an assist and five key passes last week against Hertha, and I am hoping that he can build on it in another possible goal-fest against Bochum.|
|2||Raphaël Guerreiro||BVB||vs FCA||14.6M||I can put Guerreiro's blank against Borussia behind me this week since he plays Augsburg who have scored just twice in six games.|
|3||Jeremie Frimpong||B04||@DSC||7.4M||The question about who is better - Bakker or Frimpong - remains, but the latter was much more attacking and direct in the last game.|
|4||Benno Schmitz||KOE||vs SGF||4.7M|
|5||Christian Günter||SCF||@BSC||12.1M||The only thing I would keep in mind is that Hertha is Freiburg's boogie team and they haven't won an away game against the Berliners in their last five attempts (D2, L3).
Fun fact: Günter has the most double-digit scores by any player so far in Bundesliga Fantasy with 5 (tied with Haaland).
|6||Alphonso Davies||FCB||vs SGE||14.1M||He has been disappointing since I bought him, which is typical of fantasy, but I am willing to ride with him for another week thanks to the money saved from selling Haaland.|
|7||Kevin Mbabu||WOB||vs BMG||11M|
|8||Niko Gießelmann||FCU||@M05||4.4M||I love Gießelmann, but I am a bit worried about whether he starts or not and if he gets subbed out early because he has played the entirety of Union's last three matches, including the Europa Conference League game.|
|9||Daniel Brosinski||M05||vs FCU||5.4M||The only defender that is on all set-pieces is back in the starting XI but he is bad news for Widmer owners since Brosinski is expected to push him to the right center-back position|
|2||Lukáš Hrádecký||B04||@DSC||8.9M||Surprise! surprise!
Hrádecký might be expensive, but he is the top-scoring keeper with 50 points and leads the league in most shots saved with 25 (tied with Riemann).
|3||Robin Zentner||M05||vs FCU||6.7M||Zentner had the most saves last week with eight and this game probably has no goals or just one max.|
|4||Manuel Riemann||BOC||@RBL||5.3M||Can his save points balance the negative points that he will get for goals conceded just like he did in the 0-7 loss against Bayern Munich? I think so.|
|5||Florian Müller||VFB||vs TSG||8M|
|1||Benjamin Henrichs||DEF||RBL||vs BOC||7.5M||If you aren't able to fit in Angeliño or even the Leipzig center-backs for that matter then Henrichs is expected to start this week at right wing-back and costs just 7.5M.|
|2||Paulinho||FWD||B04||@DSC||6.8M||A good time for his first Bundesliga goal this season?|
|3||Ihlas Bebou||FWD||TSG||@VFB||7.7M||Missed the start of the season due to injury, but those who played Bundesliga Fantasy last year will know that Bebou has a formidable partnership with Kramarić.|
|5||Lukas Kübler||DEF||SCF||@BSC||4.4M||The cheaper alternative to Günter.|
|7||Joe Scally||DEF||BMG||@WOB||2.1M||His jammy clean sheet came in handy last week in a matchday where most defenders struggled, but I wouldn't expect much this time out.|
|8||Dejan Ljubicic||MID||KOE||vs SGF||5.8M|
|9||Marcus Ingvartsen||FWD||M05||vs FCU||5.9M|
|10||Jurgen Ekkelenkamp||MID||BSC||vs SCF||4.9M|
