  7. Bundesliga Fantasy Player Rankings: Matchday 17

Our Bundesliga Fantasy player rankings are here for the first “Englische Woche” of the year and we look at key players from teams such as Wolfsburg and Stuttgart that stand out due to their relatively easier fixtures against Mainz and Arminia Bielefeld respectively.


Forwards

 

RankNameTeamOpponentValueComments
1Robert LewandowskiFCB@FCA22.9MNow make that six consecutive games with goals scored for Lewandowski. No force in Augsburg capable of stopping him from making it seven.
2Erling Braut HaalandBVB@B0419MA rare blank for the golden boy but he only had one shot in the entire game against Mainz since Reus and the others gobbled up most of it.
3Wout WeghorstWOB@M0517.6MThere are few good forwards in the game currently and even fewer with a good matchup this week. Weghorst is one of them.
4Andre SilvaSGE@SCF17.6MThe arrival of Jovic and in brilliant fashion with a brace is sure to disturb the power dynamic up top for Frankfurt. But as long as he remains an option off the bench, it shouldn't concern Silva owners much.
5Thomas MüllerFCB@FCA20.5M
6Ermedin DemirovićSCFVs SGE7.3M
7Saša Kalajdžić VFB@DSC4.9MStuttgart seem like they can only win away from home with the joint best away record and Kalajdžić gets a chance to prove himself again in the absence of top-scorers Wamangituka and González against the most resilient defense outside the top 10.
8Alassane PléaBMGVs SVW15.8MHe has struggled in the Bundesliga this season with just two goals but the slump won't last forever and he is the only forward in this list who has an individual fixture this week.
9Leon BaileyB04Vs BVB13.5M
10Andrej KramarićTSG@BSC16M

Midfielders

 

RankNameTeamOpponentValueComments
1Jonas HofmannBMGVs SVW13.2M
2Filip KostićSGE@SCF16.3MA more safer pick compared to Grifo and his linkup play with fellow Serbian international Luka Jovic is very encouraging.
3Vincenzo GrifoSCFVs SGE13.9M
4Lars StindlBMGVs SVW15.2MA possible double up on two of the best midfielders in the game is certainly a tempting play with two early kickoffs in a row against Bremen and Dortmund.
5Leroy SanéFCB@FCA17.9MKimmich for the floor. Sané for the ceiling.
6Christopher NkunkuRBLVs FCU14.6MLeipzig have failed to score over two goals in a game without Nkunku starting in the XI and his return is set to give the team a huge offensive boost. He was already in top gear in the game against Wolfsburg registering four key passes and finishing on seven points in just 45 minutes.
7Ritsu DōanDSCVs VFB9.1MIt must be exciting owning someone who can easily get double digit points just by bonus but he is one of the more frustrating players to watch since he rarely finishes any of the multiple chances he gets.
8Jadon SanchoBVB@B0419.5M
9Gonzalo CastroVFB@DSC5.5MStuttgart love dominating possession with their strong attacking football whereas Arminia are mostly happy to just sit back. This could invite a lot of pressure from Castro & Co.
10Nadiem AmiriB04Vs BVB13.6M




Defenders

1AngeliñoRBLVs FCU16.2M
2Borna SosaVFB@DSC4.7MA steady bonus point generator, he is a constant threat with his pin-point crosses and plays the worst attack in the league - Arminia Bielefeld.
3Raphaël GuerreiroBVB@B0416.1M
4Erik DurmSGE@SCF3.6MThese are two in-form teams going up against each other and it could turn into a spam fest with lots of potential bonus for Durm.
5Maximilian MittelstädtBSCVs TSG8.3M
6Maxence LacroixWOB@M054.7MNot much to offer other than a clean sheet and some bonus on budget.
7Alphonso DaviesFCB@FCA14.2MThe Bayern defense has been bad but it is tough to imagine Augsburg scoring.
8Stefan LainerBMGVs SVW10.3M
9Christopher TrimmelFCU@RBL10.8MThe defender with the most assists this season (6), he will always have attacking upside even against the best defense in the league which has conceded five goals over their last two games.
10Christian GünterSCFVs SGE12M

Goalkeepers

 

RankNameTeamOpponentValueComments
1Stefan OrtegaDSCVs VFB6.3MOnly Bayern, Dortmund and Leipzig have taken more shots than Stuttgart and that could only mean one thing for Ortega. Plenty of saves.
2Gregor KobelVFB@DSC5.5M
3Florian MüllerSCFVs SGE3.9MThe best keeper within 4M currently with an average of 7.8 points in his last five games but Flekken's return is right around the corner.
4Robin ZentnerM05Vs WOB4.9M
5Andreas LutheFCU@RBL5.2M
