1Robert LewandowskiFCBVs DSC23.8MA hectic schedule with four games in 10 days but should be good to go against Arminia as they play on Monday. Expecting more attacking responsibility (incl. shots) for him in the absence of Thomas Müller.
2André SilvaSGEVs KOE19MLewandowski's incredible goal-scoring run of nine consecutive games might've come to an end but Silva's has just begun and he has scored double digit points in each of his last six games.
3Erling Braut HaalandBVBVs TSG19.6MHe has only assisted and not scored in his last two games but Haaland hasn't gone over two games this season without scoring. Third for goals conceded Hoffenheim is a good game for him to get amongst the goal-scorers again.
4Wout WeghorstWOBVs BMG18.7MThe position change of Gerhardt has helped improve Wolfburg's attack massively and Weghorst has been the biggest beneficiary, scoring five goals in his last six games with him as the #10.
5Leon BaileyB04Vs M0514.4MBo Svensson has been playing some rigid football with Mainz winning games against Leipzig and Union but Leverkusen possesses a different challenge with the amount of talent in their attack and they are fresh off scoring five goals against Stuttgart last week.
6Kingsley ComanFCBVs DSC15.5MThe absence of Thomas Müller means there is something for everyone and it is a xA boost for Coman.
7Andrej KramarićTSG@BVB17.3MBorussia Dortmund is Kramarić's favorite team to play against in the league with eight goal involvements in six games and he put on a one man show in the same fixture last season with four goals in a 0-4 win.
8Saša KalajdžićVFBVs BSC5.7MHe has been in and out of the team but is making a strong case to be a permanent member in the starting XI again after scoring three goals in his last two games. Now that Gonzalez is out for a month, he has no competition, will play against Hertha, Koln and Schalke until his return and is an absolute bargain at just 5.7M.
9Matheus CunhaBSC@VFB15MPál Dárdai is always full of praise for his star player so it makes you think that Cunha is due a return sooner than later and he is always one to consider against a team that concedes a lot of shots like Stuttgart.
10Taiwo AwoniyiFCUVs S047.5M




Midfielders

 

RankNameTeamOpponentValueComments
1Filip KostićSGEVs KOE17.6MKostić is in the form of his life and another 20+ pointer takes his average to 14.25 points per game over the last eight matches. He is still owned by just 7% despite proving that he is essential almost every week.
2Christopher NkunkuRBLVs FCA15.6MThe perfect pick from the early fixture and got 14 points against Schalke just for bonus. There is a catch though as he might play limited minutes due to the upcoming UCL game against Liverpool.
3Joshua KimmichFCBVs DSC18.4M
4Jadon SanchoBVBVs TSG20.6MDortmund are apparently in a "crisis" and Sancho seems to be the only player who is immune from it's effects.
5Leroy SanéFCBVs DSC18MA more attacking alternative to Kimmich.
6Dani OlmoRBLVs FCA16.8MNot involved in goals very often but still good for 8-14 points every game.
7Florian WirtzB04Vs M058.6M
8Yannick GerhardtWOBVs BMG7.1MThe best asset from the Wolfsburg midfield in fantasy and got two individual fixtures upcoming next including an early kickoff against Arminia at home next week.
9Lars StindlBMG@WOB15.3M
10Vincenzo GrifoSCF@SVW14.3MLooked like his old self against Dortmund after a few average games but consistency is key and that is what separates him from other premium midfielders right now.

Defenders

1AngeliñoRBLVs FCA17.1MAugsburg have scored just three goals in their last five games. Not the best attacking form heading into a match against the best defense in the Bundesliga.
2Christopher TrimmelFCUVs S0410.5MTrimmel is on set-pieces and plays the worst defense in the league which also happens to have the worst attack. One couldn't ask for more.
3Raphaël GuerreiroBVBVs TSG16.3M
4Paulo OtávioWOBVs BMG8.9MWolfsburg have now extended their consecutive clean sheet run to four games but they have a big task ahead of them against Borussia's well rested attackers.
5Borna SosaVFBVs BSC4.5MHe was left out of the squad in the game against Bayer Leverkusen much to the surprise of his owners in fantasy but is predicted to start against Hertha.
6Erik DurmSGEVs KOE3.4MThese are two in form teams going up against each other so goals are to be expected rather than clean sheets. Some attacking bonus for Durm however, would be much appreciated.
7Christian GünterSCF@SVW11.7M
8Ludwig AugustinssonSVWVs SCF9.3M
9Alphonso DaviesFCBVs DSC14.1MI prefer right-back Niklas Süle instead if he starts in that position.
10Tim Fosu-MensahB04Vs M058.7MMainz have failed to score against Leverkusen in their last three games against each other so a clean sheet is on the cards but I wouldn't bet on it after their resurgence under Svensson.




Goalkeepers

 

RankNameTeamOpponentValueComments
1Rune JarsteinBSC@VFB2.5MJarstein is Pál Dárdai's choice of keeper and put in a shift against Bayern with a penalty save and nine points for saves finishing on a total of 15 points. He is also the cheapest starting keeper in the game currently at 2.5M and plays trigger happy Stuttgart next.
2Rafał GikiewiczFCA@RBL8MLeipzig haven't looked as lethal in the final third as they did with Werner and Gikiewicz is a brilliant shot stopper which means potential points for shots saved.
3Robin ZentnerM05@B044.7M
4Loris KariusFCUVs S044.4MKarius could make a great budget keeper if he puts the ghosts of his past away.
5Stefan OrtegaDSC@FCB6.3MAnother great shot stopper but you never know how many goals Bayern Munich will score.
