Freiburg and Schalke might’ve switched roles last week with the former losing against Arminia Bielefeld and the latter winning against Augsburg but the bottom-placed club is still the team to target when these two sides face each other in our Bundesliga Fantasy player rankings for the final Englische Woche of the season.

RankNameTeamOpponentValueComments
1André SilvaSGE@BMG21MDespite having a tough schedule over the last few games playing four of the top six teams, Silva was able to score or assist in each game and Frankfurt have been absolutely ruthless in their last two home games scoring five goals against Union and four against Wolfsburg, the fourth best and second best defenses in the league respectively. In the absence of fans due to covid, this game shouldn't feel like an away one.
2Erling HaalandBVBVs SVW21.2MHe hasn't scored in his past seven games so to say that he is due a goal is an understatement.
3Thomas Müller
FCB@WOB23.2MWolfsburg haven't won against Bayern in 11 games and it is easier to picture the Bavarians dominating again with Max Arnold missing out for the Wolves.
4Max KruseFCUVs VFB12.1M
5Alexander SørlothRBLVs TSG15M
6Ermedin DemirovićSCFVs S047.8MSchalke is the team to target even after their surprising but unconvincing victory against Augsburg who only had one win in the last 10 games against their boogie team. However, Demirović is prone to rotation and might play limited minutes due to the midweek game.
7Marcus ThuramBMGVs SGE15.6M
8Saša KalajdžićVFB@FCU7.8MHis purple patch has probably ended and with consecutive games against Union, Wolfsburg and Leipzig, I won't bet on him to score even though he is certainly capable of it.
9Wout WeghorstWOBVs FCB21.1MWeghorst has only scored once against FCB in his five games against them and might be deprived of service with Arnold out and Gerhardt filling in as a defensive midfielder.
10Matheus CunhaBSC@M0516MThat's a decent nine points (14 with star) *if* the game is postponed. Hoping that the affected players get well soon.




Midfielders

 

RankNameTeamOpponentValueComments
1Christopher NkunkuRBLVs TSG17.6MThis game either ends 1-0 or 4-0. It is hard to predict.
2Filip KostićSGE@BMG20MThe last three games between these teams have all been a high-scoring affair with a minimum of four goals in each game and considering the contrasting form of both teams, we could see something similar along the lines again.
3Dani OlmoRBLVs TSG18.7MTwo early games against Hoffenheim and Koln next make Nkunku+Olmo worth doubling up.
4Rolland SallaiSCFVs S048.9MBoom or bust differential for this week only as the game next week against Hertha might be postponed.
5Leroy SanéFCB@WOB19.6M
6Giovanni ReynaBVBVs SVW9.3MGives you half the thrills of owning Sancho on a budget with an individual fixture this week.
7Ritsu DoanDSC@FCA10.2MAugsburg this week + Schalke next week
8Jonas HofmannBMGVs SGE13.7MBorussia have made it a habit to turn up against big teams and give up points against the smaller one and its the same case with Hofmann.
9Amine HaritS04@SCF12.2MSchalke only play "bad" teams except Frankfurt until the end of the season but the only caveat is that Schalke is the bad team here.
10André HahnFCAVs DSC5.5M

Defenders

 

RankNameTeamOpponentValueComments
1Raphaël GuerreiroBVBVs SVW17.2MBremen currently have the worst form in the league with four losses in a row and even if you don't have Haaland or Reyna then Guerreiro offers some cover with his involvement in attack.
2Borna SosaVFB@FCU6.3MThe fixtures will keep getting tougher for Stuttgart but Sosa is still untouchable.
3Nordi MukieleRBLVs TSG11.2MHoffenheim had just two (!) shots in the entire game against Bayer Leverkusen last week. Replace Mukiele with Angeliño if he starts.
4Christian GünterSCFVs S0411.9MPotential ceiling game for Günter if Freiburg don't flop like they did against Arminia.
5Lucas HernandezFCB@WOB12.4M
6Christopher TrimmelFCUVs VFB11.3M
7Erik DurmSGE@BMG3.4MOther than his fluky goal last week (first BL goal in five years), Durm isn't a bad option to have especially with key players returning in defense for Frankfurt.
8Kevin MbabuWOBVs FCB12MLewandowski has scored in each game against Wolfsburg since 2015 but even though he won't be there to torment them the Wolves have struggled defensively after their seven consecutive clean sheets run ended where they mostly played struggling teams.
9Jeremie FrimpongB04Vs KOE8.6MHoffenheim's failure to register even one shot on target last week can be attributed to their incompetency or Leverkusen's strong defensive display but whatever the case, Köln isn't the worst game to keep a clean sheet.
10Ramy BensebainiBMGVs SGE12.2MIn the highly unlikely event that Borussia keep a clean sheet against Frankfurt.




Goalkeepers

 

RankNameTeamOpponentValueComments
1Florian MüllerSCFVs S045MIt is hard to decide between Müller and Ortega again with the former having a better chance at a clean sheet but less likely to make more saves.
2Stefan OrtegaDSC@FCA7.2MA strong argument can be made for either keeper to start over the other with Ortega having more potential for points for saves.

Fact: Ortega had zero points in the reverse fixture and Müller had nine.
3Marwin HitzBVBVs SVW1.5MHitz is an enabler with an individual fixture this week.
4Gregor KobelVFB@FCU6M
5Ralf FährmannS04@SCF6.5M
