Matchday 1 is in the books. An action-packed week full of goal-heavy games but it ended with the final game being a goalless draw. Matchday 2 promises another exciting week of Bundesliga football with mostly stronger teams playing away. Let’s look at who made the cut to our rankings this week!
Note: Bayern Munich players Gnabry, Lewandowski, Muller, Kimmich and Pavard played the entire match against Sevilla in the UEFA Super Cup.
|1||Robert Lewandowski||FCB||@TSG||18.4M||He looks as dangerous as ever and boasts an amazing record against Hoffenheim, Scoring in each of his last 5 games against them.|
|3||Alasanne Plea||BMG||Vs FCU||15M||Plea's return is a huge boost in what is considered one of the easiest fixtures this week.|
|5||Marcus Thuram||BMG||Vs FCU||14M||The other half of the lethal Plea-Thuram duo.|
|6||Matheus Cunha||BSC||Vs SGE||12.3M||He has scored in 7 of his last 11 games and plays first this week.|
|7||Emil Forsberg||RBL||@B04||11.4M||He was all over Mainz creating and scoring goals but was unlucky to not come out with more. Might be more effective than Poulsen against a Leverkusen team that has strong presence in the air.|
|8||Wout Weghorst||WOB||@SCF||14M||Freiburg displayed their defensive woes conceding an astonishing 26 shots to newly promoted Stuttgart which was worse than Schalke's 21 and Mainz's 23. So you would expect the big Dutch man to have some shots on goal.|
|10||Saša Kalajdžić||VFB||@M05||4M||In his 25 minutes off the bench, he impressed a lot registering 5 shots and 1 goal. Mainz had similar amount of shots conceded to Freiburg and Schalke so he should have some great chances again this week.|
|1||Leroy Sane||FCB||@TSG||17M||He was too good against Schalke but that might be the case for almost every team because that is the caliber of player he is.|
|3||Filip Kostić||SGE||@BSC||15M||Kostic had 11 crosses from open play but couldn't find the end of one against a defensive Arminia team. I don't think it's going to stay that way for long.|
|4||Jonas Hofmann||BMG||Vs FCU||12.1M||His combination of floor and ceiling makes him an interesting pick for me not just for this week but also for the long term.|
|6||Lars Stindl||BMG||@BVB||12M||He is going to be a popular pick from Borussia this week and hopefully he makes a comeback from the terrible game he had against Dortmund.|
|7||Giovanni Reyna||BVB||@FCA||7.2M||He was really impressive against Borussia and might be an absolute bargain at 7.2M.|
|9||Ritsu Doan||DSC||Vs KOE||7.1M||The most dangerous player on the pitch in the game Vs Frankfurt and I fancy him to do even better against Koln.|
|1||Raphael Guerreiro||BVB||@FCA||13.9M||Missed last week due to injury but is more or less confirmed to feature this week. His attacking upside is immense.|
|2||Ludwig Augustinsson||SVW||@S04||9.2M||An assist, 6 crosses and 10 points despite conceding 4 goals. How much damage can he do to Schalke? I think a lot.|
|3||Alphonso Davies||FCB||@TSG||14.9M||Another big absentee for MD1 but he came off the bench against Sevilla and should start the next Bundesliga game.|
|5||Ramy Bensebaini||BMG||Vs FCU||11.7M||The Borussia defenders had a torrid outing against Dortmund but I expect them to bounce back Vs Union. Ramy had an assist against them last time out.|
|6||Peter Pekarik||BSC||Vs SGE||5.3M||Involved in attack and scored the winning goal. Not bad for a 33 year old right-back.|
|7||Daniel Brosinski||M05||Vs VFB||9.1M||Might be surprising to some but Brosinski is a bonus points magnet and is on set-pieces.|
|8||Marc-Oliver Kempf||VFB||@M05||5.2M||The only Stuttgart defender who scored more than 0 in the last game and he did it convincingly with 11 bonus points.|
|1||Florian Muller||SCF||Vs WOB||4.1M||The shots conceded statistic makes me feel confident about saves for Muller.|
|2||Alexander Schwolow||BSC||Vs SGE||10.2M|
|3||Robin Zentner||M05||Vs VFB||5.1M|
|5||Stefan Ortega||DSC||Vs KOE||5.1M||The surprise package from MD1, he racked up easy saves because of his team's defensive style of play.|
|4||Yann Sommer||BMG||Vs FCU||11.7M||Worst performing keeper in fantasy for MD1 but he should bounce back.|
