Bundesliga Fantasy is back for matchday 27 after a short International Break and despite Eintracht Frankfurt playing Borussia Dortmund in a tough game, the eagles top our player rankings and it could be a potential goal fest with the number of absentees for each team.

1Wout WeghorstWOBVs KOE20.3MWeghorst is in great form, has one of the best fixtures this on paper that has had at least four goals in each game since 2018. He might be reliant on multiple returns for a good score but it's a good possibility against Köln.
2André SilvaSGE@BVB20.2MThis game is all about who is more motivated to get that last Champions League spot over the other but Dortmund are a hot mess right now.
3Saša KalajdžićVFBVs SVW7.3MWerder Bremen have conceded the most headers in 2021 so it is all about using his head to the best effect for Saša.
4Erling Braut HaalandBVBVs SGE20.8MHaaland is one of the most consistent strikers in the world and shouldn't be doubted but no goals in 13 shots over three matches for the Norway National Team is sure to raise some eyebrows.
5Leon BaileyB04Vs S0414.6MForm doesn't matter when you play Schalke. It is a golden opportunity for any forward to add some goals to their name.
6Max KruseFCUVs BSC12.1M
7Thomas Müller
FCB@RBL22.6MAn easy recommendation on any other day but the absence of Lewandowski slightly tilts the tie in favor of the best defense of the league over the best attack.
8Patrick SchickB04Vs S0415.7MIf form does matter to you then Schick could be an even better pick than Bailey with his threat from headers against the worst set-piece defending team in the league.
9Matheus CunhaBSC@FCU15.6M
10Alassane PléaBMGVs SCF16.9M




Midfielders

1Filip KostićSGE@BVB19.4MIt doesn't matter if Can starts at right-back or Meunier. With both teams missing key players in midfield and defense, Kostić could run riot in a potential goal fest.
2Christopher NkunkuRBLVs FCB17.3MThe hunter might turn prey in this fixture and Leipzig will fancy their chances in a must-win game against a Bayern team that is far from their best.
3Florian WirtzB04Vs S048.3MIt is almost impossible to predict who will do better between Wirtz and Demirbay against Schalke because both have been equally bad.
4Maximilian ArnoldWOBVs KOE16.3MIf budget isn't a constraint then Arnold is a great differential with a minimum score of nine in his last six games.
5Lars StindlBMGVs SCF16MStindl's best performances have come in the absence of Hofmann but ending an eight game losing streak against Schalke has no significance.
6Leroy SanéFCB@RBL19.5M
7Marco RichterFCAVs TSG9.8M
8Vincenzo GrifoSCF@BMG14.6MHe could be a sneaky pick if you expect Borussia to go back to their old ways before the win against Schalke. Also plays Arminia in the early fixture next and Schalke after that.
9Christoph BaumgartnerTSG@FCA13.1M
10Thorgan HazardBVBVs SGE12.6MFrankfurt will be missing Hasebe, Hinteregger and Toure in defense so the makeshift backline of Tuta-Ilsanker-Ndicka doesn't inspire much confidence.

Defenders

1Borna SosaVFBVs SVW5.8MProbably won't keep a clean sheet this week but has great attacking upside and that is all that matters.
2Kevin MbabuWOBVs KOE11.7MOnly Schalke and Arminia have scored fewer goals away from home than Köln.
3Phillip MweneM05Vs DSC2.4MMainz are up there with Wolfsburg and Leverkusen in terms of clean sheet potential this week.
4Raphaël GuerreiroBVBVs SGE16.8M
5Jeremie FrimpongB04Vs S048.6MIf Borussia could keep a clean sheet after conceding in eight games straight then there is hope for Leverkusen who have done it just once in their last 18 games. That was against Borussia.
6Christopher TrimmelFCUVs BSC11.2MTrimmel was at his old best in the previous game registering six key passes but the biggest perk of owning him is that he plays in the last game of the week.
7Deyovaisio ZeefuikBSC@FCU7.5MLast week's most surprising performer, Zeefuik racked up an impressive 19 points against Leverkusen last week. However, it is yet to be seen if Hertha can replicate such performances away from home.
8Nordi MukieleRBLVs FCB11.3MThe clean sheet odds here are in Leipzig's favour. Not that I am expecting them to keep it.
9Pavel KadeřábekTSG@FCA9.6M
10Christian GünterSCF@BMG11.8M




Goalkeepers

1Florian MüllerSCF@BMG4.6MMüller's monster haul on matchday 26 means that he has the two highest scores in a single game for a keeper this season. 22 points against Stuttgart on MD18 and 18 points against Augsburg on MD26.
2Stefan OrtegaDSC@M056.9MIf your main emphasis is on gaining points rather than just rotation then Ortega and Müller make the best combo.
3Robin ZentnerM05Vs DSC5MMainz have gone from being shut by opponents to shutting them out and are more likely to keep a clean sheet against Arminia than not but they don't generate too many shots so the potential for saves isn't much.
4Koen CasteelsWOBVs KOE10.9M
5Frederik RønnowS04@B041M
