1Robert LewandowskiFCBVs VFB25.7MLewandowski has failed to score just once in the last 15 matchdays. With form like this you could argue that you won't need star flexibility this week with no standout options in the individual fixtures.
2Erling Braut HaalandBVB@KOE20.4M
3Thomas Müller
FCBVs VFB22.2MA perfect double up combo with Lewandowski but you will have to compromise your star flexibility this week.
4André SilvaSGEVs FCU19.8M
5Alassane PléaBMG@S0416.7MPléa has just three goals this season in 21 Bundesliga games but you can never count a forward out against second division bound Schalke.
6Wout WeghorstWOB@SVW19.8MWeghorst got 21 points in a 5-0 rout of Schalke but an away game against Bremen has been a low-scoring affair for Wolfsburg recently with the team failing to score more than one goal in each of their last four games away at the Weser Stadium.
7Andrej KramarićTSGVs M0517.8MThere are few forwards to select from the Sunday fixtures but this game could go either way with Mainz's recent form.
8Saša KalajdžićVFB@FCB7.3MSaša could score against Bayern's shaky defense but I expect Bayern to dominate the proceedings.
9Yussuf PoulsenRBL@DSC12.8MA low ceiling pick with the highest ceiling amongst forwards from the early game.
10Patrick SchickB04@BSC15.8M




Midfielders

1Christopher NkunkuRBL@DSC16.9MLeipzig have made it a habit to thump newcomers to the Bundesliga and there couldn't be a more better pick from the early game thank Nkunku.
2Filip KostićSGEVs FCU19M
3Lars StindlBMG@S0415.6MStindl is the most obvious pick from Borussia against Schalke because no other player from the team has looked even remotely good in Fantasy. Also the fact that he is on set-pieces including penalties.
4Joshua KimmichFCBVs VFB19.2M
5Dani OlmoRBL@DSC18MArminia is another low-block team for Olmo to feast on with his shot-making abilities.
6Leroy SanéFCBVs VFB19.2M
7Christoph BaumgartnerTSGVs M0513.2MHoffenheim's best attacking performances have come at home and Baumgartner has played an important role in almost all of them.
8Amine HaritS04Vs BMG12MThere is a big difference between Borussia and Schalke but the former has the worst form in the league currently with four losses in a row and it isn't difficult to imagine Schalke scoring in this game.
9André HahnFCA@SCF5.2MIt is a showdown of the two teams who have conceded the most shots after Schalke so Hahn is expected to rack up plenty of bonus points even if he won't play as a striker.
10Florian WirtzB04@BSC8.4M

Defenders

1Marcel HalstenbergRBL@DSC14MEasily the best defender for the week as he plays against a dysfunctional attack.
2Ramy BensebainiBMG@S0412.1MThere is a huge potential for points against Schalke but he might not even play.
3Kevin MbabuWOB@SVW11.6M
4Borna SosaVFB@FCB5.8M
5Alphonso DaviesFCBVs VFB14.9M
6Timothy ChandlerSGEVs FCU5.1MFBL veterans will remember Chandler as an OOP defender on the wing with an eye for goals. He could be a decent differential with a possible wildcard over the upcoming international break.
7Nico SchlotterbeckFCU@SGE4.5MWith Trimmel in a massive slump of form, his team's center back who is more attacking and consistent with bonus than him might be a better pick.
8Pavel KadeřábekTSGVs M059.8MOne for you if you expect Hoffenheim to dispose of in-form Mainz.
9Phillip MweneM05@TSG2.2MMainz have turned a new page and conceded just once in their last three games but Hoffenheim have scored in each of their last 12 Bundesliga games against them.
10Jeremie FrimpongB04@BSC8.8MSince matchday 15, only Hertha have scored fewer goals (5) than Schalke (6).




Goalkeepers

 

RankNameTeamOpponentValueComments
1Stefan OrtegaDSCVs RBL6.7MIt could be a big game for Ortega as the keeper with the most saves plays against the team with the most shots after Bayern.
2Frederik RønnowS04Vs BMG1M0.1% chance of a cleansheet but Borussia bombarding his goal with shots is a guarantee.
3Florian MüllerSCFVs FCA4.6MHe could have a more than decent score with a fair chance at a clean sheet against trigger happy Augsburg.
4Robin ZentnerM05@TSG4.9M
5Koen CasteelsWOB@SVW10.9M
