RankNameTeamOpponentValueComments
1Robert LewandowskiFCBVs SVW19.9MThis goal-scoring machine already has 11 goals and 4 assists in 6 games. If that wasn't worrying enough for Bremen, he has scored in his last three games against them in all competitions. Totaling to 5. So expect a few goals in this game.
2Erling Braut HålandBVB@BSC18.4M
3Andrej KramarićTSGVs VFB14.9MThere are a lot of absentees from Hoffenheim in this game but I still have more faith in his ability to score than for Stuttgart to hold him back.
4Thomas MullerFCBVS SVW18.3MMuller has been overshadowed by Lewandowski's towering achievements but don't take him for granted. He has slowly moved his way up as the second highest scorer in fantasy this season on the back of his 4 goals and 5 assists in 7 games. Budget constraints should be the only reason he is not in consideration.
5Lucas AlarioB04@DSC11.4MAlario has scored a brace in each of his last three Bundesliga games and Arminia have conceded 13 in their last four. Talk about consistency.
6Max KruseFCU@KOE12MUnion have started attacking more centrally through Kruse than the fullbacks. Which explains his 5 assists in the last 3 games along with the 2 penalties. Koln have already conceded an alarming 5 penalties so Kruse's set-pieces abilities might come into play here.
7Wout WeghorstWOB@S0415.1MSchalke took a beating against Bayern in the first game of the season losing 8-0 but another six games later, they still remain the worst defense in the league. Most goals, penalties and shots conceded. Weghorst also scored a brace in this same fixture last season. I feel like I might be convincing myself to punt on Weghorst here.
8Marcus ThuramBMGVs FCA14.6M
9Andre SilvaSGEVs RBL15.9M
10Nicolás GonzálezVFB@TSG9.1M
11Matheus CunhaBSCVs BVB14.1MDortmund might not be the best fixture there is but his ability to generate shots and create chances should see him through.

Midfielders

1Leroy SaneFCBVs SVW17.2MHe scored the winning goal against Dortmund in the Der Klassiker and also chipped in with a goal against Ukraine in what was a disappointing International Break for Germany overall. Sane is the one to get if you expect this game to have lots of goals but it is subject to whether he starts or not.
2Filip KostićSGEVs RBL14.7MIn a tough season where it has been difficult to find players who are consistent, Kostic's return is most welcome.
3Vincenzo GrifoSCFVs M0513.5MGrifo's set-pieces are going to be a big problem for the second worst defense in the league.
4Lars StindlBMGVs FCA13MHe has been involved in four of the nine goals Borussia have scored in their last two games across all competitions and the absence of Hofmann makes him an even better prospect.
5Jadon SanchoBVB@BSC17.7M
6Florian WirtzB04@DSC6.7MWirtz is filling in the boots for Kai Havertz and he costs only a third of what he did.
7Giovanni ReynaBVB@BSC7.9M
8Christopher NkunkuRBL@SGE15M
9Josip Brekalo WOB@S0410MWolfsburg might not be the best attacking team there is but it is hard to overlook someone who plays against Schalke.
10Leon GoretzkaFCBVs SVW14.4M

Defenders

1AngeliñoRBL@SGE14.5MTap-ins, headers and now free kicks? The defender with 5 goals already this season keeps getting better.
2Raphaël GuerreiroBVB@BSC15MIt's funny how he kept his best performance for the toughest game of the season when many people took him out. But there is more of where it came from.
3Lucas HernandezFCBVs SVW12M
4Christian GünterSCFVs M0511.4MFreiburg and Mainz have both been awful and will look to end their winless streak but Gunter's set pieces give him the edge for me.
5Ramy BensebainiBMGVs FCA12.3M
6Borna SosaVFB@TSG4MHe is averaging 10 points over the last two games without goals, assists or cleansheets. Sosa is highly attacking, is on set-pieces and it is only time until he breaks through.
7Maxence LacroixWOB@S044.4M
8Christopher TrimmelFCU@KOE9.8M
9Daley SinkgravenSGE@DSC6.4M
10Ismail JakobsKOEVs FCU7M

3Gregor KobelVFB@TSG5.3MKeeper have averaged 5.8 points against Hoffenheim this season.
4Robin ZentnerM05@SCF4.6M
