1Robert LewandowskiFCB@M0525.7MA reminder that Lewandowski needs just five goals in the last four matchdays to break Gerd Müller's record. There is no bigger motivation than that and it is hard to pass on the best player in the league when he starts.
2André SilvaSGE@B0421.2M
3Thomas MüllerFCB@M0523.6MLewandowski's return should boost his production in fantasy even more.
4Erling HaalandBVB@WOB21.9MSancho returning to the starting XI is similar to the situation above.
5Wout WeghorstWOBVs BVB21.6MA towering striker in the form of his life should score against a team that goes into a frenzy while defending headers, right? The only worry here is that Wolfsburg haven't scored against BVB in each of their last eight Bundesliga games against them since 2016.
6Andrej KramarićTSG@SCF18.1MI won't hedge my bets on Hoffenheim because of how unpredictable they are but they only play teams in the bottom seven for defense until the end of the season. That is Freiburg, Schalke, Arminia, and Hertha which makes Kramarić a differential option as he tends to pick up form towards the end of the season.
7Alexander SørlothRBLVs VFB15.1MA good matchup but Leipzig have failed to score in their last two home games.
8Max KruseFCUVs SVW12.2M
9Marcus ThuramBMGVs DSC15.8M
10Leon BaileyB04Vs SGE15M




Midfielders

1Christopher NkunkuRBLVs VFB18MStuttgart are down to their third choice wingbacks and if Wolfsburg's wide players such as Gerhardt (16) and Brekalo (14) hauling last week is something to go by then Nkunku and Olmo should have a good game.
2Filip KostićSGE@B0420.9M
3Jadon SanchoBVB@WOB21.3MSancho was able to rack up nine points in just 30 minutes after coming off the bench against Union. A display of his potential as an asset in Fantasy Bundesliga.
4Dani OlmoRBLVs VFB18.7M
5Leroy SanéFCB@M0519.9MMusiala deserves better than to be replaced by an out-of-form Sané.
6Jonas HectorKOE@FCA10.5MHector has three goals and two assists in six games after returning form injury, is a threat from headers and has full freedom to bomb forward in attack from deep in midfield under new head coach Funkel. His closest equivalent is Tomáš Souček from West Ham.
7Rolland SallaiSCFVs TSG9.3M
8Jonas HofmannBMGVs DSC14MHow well Hofmann does is anybody's guess at this point. Borussia will manage to beat top six teams such as Bayern, Dortmund and Frankfurt but lose to teams like Hoffenheim, Augsburg, Koln and Mainz.
9Maximillian ArnoldWOBVs BVB16.4M
10Ritsu DoanDSC@BMG10.7MDoan had a monster game against Schalke last week scoring 16 points without being involved in the only goal of the match but he can still be a boring, high floor pick with tougher individual fixtures this week against BMG and next week against Hertha.

Defenders

1AngeliñoRBLVs VFB16.6MHopefully Nagelsmann doesn't resent him now and he plays the full 90 minutes.
2Raphaël GuerreiroBVB@WOB17.5M
3Alphonso DaviesFCB@M0515.4MAlaba might've been the best Bayern defender last week with his 22 pointer but it is too late to hop on that train as Goretzka's return will move him back to center back.
4Ramy BensebainiBMGVs DSC12.6MThe Arminia attack shouldn't create too much fear for Borussia as they aren't capable of comebacks.
5Christopher TrimmelFCUVs SVW11.6M
6Erik DurmSGE@B043.4MThe Frankfurt defence now looks much better because they don't have to force Ilsanker to fill in at center back.
7Ludwig AugustinssonSVW@FCU9.3MHe is averaging seven points per game in his last six games despite not winning in any of them.
8Christian GünterSCFVs TSG12.4M
9Paulo OtávioWOBVs BVB9M
10Jannes HornKOE@FCA1.4MA small chance that FC Köln sneak a clean sheet in the early fixture against an Augsburg team that couldn't even score against Schalke.




Goalkeepers

1Florian MüllerSCFVs TSG5.2MHoffenheim have scored just once in their last three away games and Müller has potential for a clean sheet as well as saves against a team that shoots a lot but doesn't score as often.
2Stefan OrtegaDSC@BMG7.5M
3Gregor KobelVFB@RBL5.6MA ceiling pick for this week and he was the highest-scoring keeper in the matchday of the reverse fixtures with 17 points out of which 12 were just for saves.
4Andreas LutheFCUVs SVW4.8M
5Marwin HitzBVB@WOB1.7M
