Matchday 2 is in the books. A topsy-turvy week full of shocking results where the top 4 failed to register a win and the rise of some unlikely heroes who have shown us great promise for the upcoming season. MD 3 might not have the most entertaining fixtures but there are points to be won and ranks to be climbed. Let’s look at who made the cut to our rankings this week!


Note: Bayern Munich players Muller, Kimmich, Davies, Sule, Hernandez and Pavard played the entire match against Borussia Dortmund in the Supercup final on Wednesday. From the opposing team, Passlack, Delaney, Dahoud, Can, Akanji and Hitz went all the way.

Similarly, Wolfsburg players Weghorst, Mehmedi, Steffen, Arnold, Otavio, Lacroix, Guilavogui and Rousillon played till the full time in the 2-1 loss AEK Athens in the Europa League Qualifiers on Thursday.

1Robert LewandowskiFCBVs BSC18.4M
2Erling HaalandBVBVs SCF17.5MHe had a good showing in the Supercup chipping in with a goal and an assist
3Andrej KramarićTSG@SGE14.8MThe most in-form player in the league with 5 goals in 2 games. He has risen by 0.8M in that time and might be too expensive to get after a while if he keeps performing this way.
4Serge GnabryFCB@TSG17.3M
5Emil ForsbergRBLVs S0411.4M
6Alasanne PleaBMG@KOE15.1MMight have not gotten himself a goal but he had more shots and dribbles than Thuram.
7Marcus ThuramBMG@KOE14.2M
8Niclas FüllkrugSVWVs DSC11.4MA doubt to start against Arminia but it wouldn't be fair to leave him out after scoring a hattrick.
9Andre SilvaSGEVs TSG14.5MSilva has been on a tear since the corona break scoring 10 goals and assisting 3 in 12 games
10Patrik SchickB04@VFB14.1MHis game winning goal was cancelled out Vs former team Leipzig but the team looked more fluent with him in attack. I expect Leverkusen to dominate Stuttgart like they did against Leipzig and Schick should have good chances.

Midfielders

1Jadon SanchoBVBVs SCF17.4MWith the uncertainty regarding premium midfielders, Sancho is an easy recommend for #1. But he himself is also a doubt to start so watch out for that.
2Dani OlmoRBLVs S0414.2MThere isn't any other Leipzig midfielder worth considering unless Sabitzer comes back.
3Joshua KimmichFCBVs BSC16.6MKimmich is in terrific form scoring in his last 2 games for Bayern. Hertha haven't won at Bayern since 1977 and I don't think that will change this week.
4Daichi KamadaSGEVs TSG11.5M
5Jonas HofmannBMG@KOE12.3M
6Julian BrandtBVBVs SCF14M
7Josip BrekaloWOBVs FCA9.5MPossibly the best midfield pick from the Wolfsburg-Augsburg game and he gives you star flexibility as they have an individual fixture on Sunday.
8Daniel DidaviVFBVs B047.6M
9Daniel CaligiuriFCA@WOB9.5M
10Marius BülterFCUVs M058.3M

Defenders

1Ludwig AugustinssonSVWVs DSC9.6MHe has quickly become a must have asset raking up an assist in each of his 2 games. Arminia also brings a good opportunity to keep a cleansheet with them.
2AngeliñoRBLVs S0413MIt's Schalke.
3Alphonso DaviesFCBVs BSC14.9MIf you're lucky he might even play OOP on the wing but that depends on the availability of Alaba. Which makes it unlikely.
4Raphael GuerreiroBVBVs SCF13.9M
5Pavel KadeřábekTSG@SGE11.1MI think the match of Kadeřábek Vs Zuber is something to look forward to. Might reap dividends for Kadeřábek.
6Christopher LenzFCUVs M059.3MHe seems like a good 2 week punt since he plays Mainz first and then Schalke last the gameweek after.
7Daniel BrosinskiM05@FCU9.1MWith the expelling Beierlorzer and transfer of Baku, Brosinski should now play in his orignal position of RB where he is more comfortable.
8Lukas KlostermannRBLVs S0412.1M
9Ramy BensebainiBMG@KOE11.8M
10IagoWOB@FCA5.3MThe gamble could possibly be worth it if Wolfsburg play their B team again.

Goalkeepers

1Stefan OrtegaDSC@SVW5.5MAs if he didn't surprise me enough with his performance in MD1, he chipped in with an assist in the next one. What a guy!
2Gregor KobelVFBVs B044.9M
3Péter GulácsiRBLVs S0410.9MThe best chance at cleansheet for the week?
4Rafał GikiewiczFCA@WOB7.4MHe has the highest save points so far with 12 in 2 games.
