The arrival of matchday 11 in Bundesliga Fantasy signals the start of the “Englische Woche” – a run of matchdays where a team plays thrice in a week from weekend to midweek to the weekend again. The relief from UCL and Europa games is short-lived as another hectic schedule awaits us. These are our Bundesliga fantasy player rankings for the week:

1Robert LewandowskiFCB@FCU20.7MIt was surprising that Lewandowski wasn't involved in a single goal when Bayern scored three and some might be having their doubts on whether he is essential or not. I would say you can avoid him but at your own risk. I don't think it is worth it.
2Wout WeghorstWolfsburgVs SGE16.4MWolfsburg was one of the teams with the least goals scored initially but that has turned around in the last three games in which they have scored nine goals in total, corresponding to Weghorst's purple patch who has scored four goals and assisted one in those games. Additional bonus is that he plays in the first game of the week against a Frankfurt team that hasn't kept a cleansheet in their last 23 Bundesliga games.
3Yussuf PoulsenRBLVs SVW11.4M
4Kingsley ComanFCB@FCU14.1MA bit unexpected but Coman has been the most in-form player for Bayern as of late and it is evident in his recent performances where he has scored two goals and assisted four in his last three games. Including the hattrick of assists against Leipzig last week.
5Alassane PléaBMGVs BSC16M
6Leon BaileyB04Vs TSG12.9MLeverkusen have been on a demolition derby as of late by scoring atleast three goals in nine out of their last 12 games across all competitions and Hoffenheim should be a more challenging game but it is tough to imagine that they will be spared.
7Andrej KramarićTSG@B0415.6MIt has almost become frustrating to own Kramaric after the introduction of Bebou up top. He plays like a secondary attacker now with Bebou taking a big pie out of his potential points.
8Andre SilvaSGE@WOB16.1M
9Marco ReusBVBVs VFB16.8M
10Jean-Phillipe MatetaM05Vs KOE11.6MMainz and Mateta's form has been a bit topsy-turvy so it is tough to set expectations. Especially against Koln who haven't conceded more than one goal away.

Midfielders

1Vincenzo GrifoSCFVs DSC12.9MNo other midfielder has scored more points over the last two weeks than Grifo with 16 points and a goal in each game. You can expect him to take on a lot of shots as well as create many in a game where Freiburg will be desperate to end their nine game winless streak.
2Daniel Caligiuri FCAVs S0410.5MCaligiuri has been a vital cog of the Augsburg attack being their top goal scorer this season and he will be a threat from set-pieces against the worst defending team from dead ball situations. Simply the best option against Schalke this week.
3Lars StindlBMGVs BSC13.3M
4Jadon SanchoBVBVs VFB17.9M
5Florian WirtzB04Vs TSG7.4M
6Giovanni ReynaBVBVs VFB8.3MPacks the same punch as Sancho at half the price.
7Daichi KamadaSGE@WOB13MIt is tough to select between him and Kostic but Kamada has simply been better this season and has the third highest key passes after Muller and Nkunku.
8Dani OlmoRBLVs SVW14.9MI would prefer Nkunku but since he doesn't feature in any predicted lineups, Olmo will be my second choice.
9Josip BrekaloWOBVs SGE10.6M
10Ritsu DoanDSC@SCF7.9M

Defenders

 

RankNameTeamOpponentValueComments
1Christian GünterSCFVs DSC11.7MDangerous set-piece and crossing ability always makes him a good option against lower teams.
2Marcel HalstenbergRBLVs SVW12.8MIf Angelino is rested then this penalty taking defender becomes the best asset from the Leipzig defense.
3Lucas HernandezFCB@FCU11.9MUnion might be the team with the most goals scored after Bayern but the absence of Max Kruse takes away all the venom from them.
4Mats HummelsBVBVs VFB14.2MThis is assuming Guerreiro doesn't start.
5IagoFCAVs S045.1MThere is a real chance that no-clean-sheet-in-seven-games-Augsburg gets scored on by the lowest scoring team in the league in Schalke but Iago is still worth a shout.
6Ismail JakobsKOE@M056.8M
7Oscar WendtBMGVs BSC6.4MThe suspension of Cunha should boost Borussia's clean sheet possibility a bit. Not that I am expecting one.
8Borna SosaVFB@BVB4.1M
9Lars BenderB04Vs TSG10.1M
10Maxence LacroixWOBVs SGE4.8M

Goalkeepers

1Rafał GikiewiczFCAVs S047.4MThere might not be many shots to save for Gikiwicz but a good cleansheet chance should do.
2Stefan OrtegaDSC@SCF5.3MYes, I rated him over Müller who has better cleansheet odds since he is in better form and gets a lot of save points.
3Robin ZentnerM05@DSC4.5M
4Florian MüllerSCFVs DSC2.1M
5Gregor KobelVFB@BVB5.1M
