The Sosa-Sasa duo from Stuttgart is one to watch in our Bundesliga Fantasy player rankings for matchday 23 due to their recent performances and the fact that they play Schalke this week.

RankNameTeamOpponentValueComments
1Erling Braut HaalandBVBVs DSC20.2MArminia has turned into a punching bag in the last four weeks conceding 14 goals - the most within that period.
2Robert LewandowskiFCBVs KOE24.4M
3Saša KalajdžićVFBVs S046.4MSaša has scored in each of his last three games and I can imagine him extending it to four games in a row against Schalke.
4André SilvaSGE@SVW19.6MIt is easy to overlook Silva's goal-scoring run because of Lewandowski but he currently has the same amount of goals as Messi and Ronaldo this season with 18. He also adds much needed star flexibility this week with an early fixture against Bremen.
5Wout WeghorstWOBVs BSC19MHis good run of form means that he returns every game but the problem remains the same that he often fails to score in double digits because of his lack of bonus.
6Lucas AlarioB04Vs SCF11.4MAlario has been in and out of the starting XI but has nine goals in the same number of starts and the Leverkusen attack is much more dangerous with him leading the line rather than Schick.
7Andrej KramarićTSG@FCU17.2M
8Kingsley ComanFCBVs KOE15.8M
9Ermedin DemirovićSCF@B047.6MLeverkusen have drawn against Mainz and Augsburg but the main reason for that can be attributed to their defending. They haven't kept a clean sheet in their last 10 Bundesliga games and the defense doesn't seem to be in safe hands with their backup keepers.
10Matheus CunhaBSC@WOB15.4MYes, Wolfsburg haven't conceded in their last six games and Cunha hasn't scored in his last 13 games but he is still averaging 7.75 points in his last eight games which is comparable to Weghorst with single returns.




Midfielders

 

RankNameTeamOpponentValueComments
1Filip KostićSGE@SVW18.1M10 points with an assist is disappointing by his high standards but an early game against Bremen that just conceded four goals against out-of-form Hoffenheim could see him improve.
2Jadon SanchoBVBVs DSC21.2MIf goals are to be expected against Arminia's leaky defense then Sancho could be a fantasy jackpot. He has scored or assisted Dortmund's last 10 goals out of 17 (59%) in the last eight games.
3Leroy SanéFCBVs KOE18.8MMore likely to score compared to Kimmich when he starts and has looked sharp in the last few games.
4Christopher NkunkuRBLVs BMG16.1M
5Joshua KimmichFCBVs KOE18.6MMore likely to assist compared to Sané and has a better floor.
6Amin YounesSGE@SVW7.6MHe shoots a lot, scores screamers and is giving premium options a run for their money with an average of 11 points in his last six games. A Frankfurt midfield double up with Kostić + Younes seems like a smart strategy now.
7Christoph BaumgartnerTSG@FCU12.5MA late inclusion to the list after his return to the predicted lineups, Baumgartner is getting back to his old levels with double digit scores in four out of his last six games and he loves playing against Union with a goal in each of his two starts against them.
8Dani OlmoRBLVs BMG17.6M
9Yannick GerhardtWOBVs BSC7.5M
10Nadiem AmiriB04Vs SCF13.5MLeverkusen's early season form has faded away and they have won just once in their last eight games across all competitions (W1, D2, L5) but Amiri still remains the best option from midfielders playing on Sunday (other than Baumgartner).
11Lars StindlBMG@RBL15.7MThe injury to Hofmann solves the selection dilemma between both and Stindl has had his best games without him in the team. Not expecting any heroics against Leipzig however.

Defenders

 

RankNameTeamOpponentValueComments
1Borna SosaVFBVs S045.1MSosa and Sasa have a formidable partnership with the target man scoring with each of the Argentinian's last three assists. They have a more than good chance to repeat the same against Schalke who have scored just once in their last five games while conceding 12 goals.
2AngeliñoRBLVs BMG17.2M
3Raphaël GuerreiroBVBVs DSC16.8MJust 12 points for a goal + clean sheet against Schalke does raise questions about whether Guerreiro is worth the premium.
4Paulo OtávioWOBVs BSC9.3MSix clean sheets in a row with an unchanged XI but the team's balance might be disturbed due to the suspension of Brooks.
5Niklas SüleFCBVs KOE11.9M
6Erik DurmSGE@SVW3.5M
7Christopher TrimmelFCUVs TSG10.7MTrimmel is mostly prefered because of his attacking threat but he hasn't assisted in his last eight games. So Nico Schlotterbeck is worth a shout as he is half the price and takes more shots = better floor.
8Phillip MweneM05Vs FCA1.5MAugsburg is another team that has struggled to score goals and Mwene could be a decent enabler as Mainz are doing a full 180 under Bo Svensson. Moussa Niakhaté is also worth a shout as he is on penalties.

Bonus: Mainz play Schalke on Friday next week (If you chose to get a player from one of the most avoidable fixtures this season).
9Pavel KadeřábekTSG@FCU9.6M
10Mads PedersenFCA@M051.4MAnother enabler that offers flexibility this week but with a better floor so you could interchange him and Mwene's rank based on which team you think wins.




Goalkeepers

1Gregor KobelVFBVs S045.1MA home game against Schalke is a good bet for a clean sheet.
2Florian MüllerSCF@B044.3MLast week was a bad one for keepers and Müller was no exception with a rare blank but could bounce back against a struggling Leverkusen.
3Stefan OrtegaDSC@BVB6.3M
4Koen CasteelsWOBVs BSC10.7M
5Rafał GikiewiczFCA@M057.9M
