RankNameTeamOpponentValueComments
1Robert LewandowskiFCB@VFB20.3MLewandowski thrives against a team that gives up lots of shots. But then he does so against every other team.
2Erling Braut HålandBVBVs KOE18.8MDespite his recent heroics, he ranks second for me due to Koln's strong defensive record away this season where teams have failed to score more than one goal against them + the small possibility of him being rested.
3Andrej KramarićTSG@M0515.3MKramaric's goal against Stuttgart in MD8 and Liberec in the Europa League means that he has now scored in 8 games in a row for Hoffenheim. This streak started last season.
4Lucas AlarioB04Vs BSC11.5MHis rare blank against Arminia doesn't concern me much as goes up against a shaky Hertha defense this week.
5Alassane PléaBMGVs S0415.4MOpposition strikers have scored in each of Schalke's last four games.
6Thomas MullerFCB@VFB18.4M
7Yussuf PoulsenRBLVs DSC11.5M
8Matheus CunhaBSC@B0414.4MCunha has been one of the best forward assets in fantasy assets and has scored double digits in six out of his eight games this season. So him playing against a strong defensive team does not concern me anymore.
9Wout WeghorstWOBVs SVW15.5MBremen might have held Bayern and Lewandowski back last week but this could quickly turn into a header fest if Wolfsburg get their set-pieces right.
10Max KruseFCUVs SGE12.3M

Midfielders

1Christopher NkunkuRBLVs DSC14.9MHe hasn't been anything special as his form would suggest but it is fair to hopeful of some bonus and possibly a goal/assist in this game.
2Lars StindlBMGVs S0413.1MStindl is the best midfielder to get from Borussia in fantasy and has been thriving in the absence of Hofmann.
3Jadon SanchoBVBVs KOE17.6MA good shout in a game where Dortmund are expected to score a few goals but you should be wary of the rotation risk here since he played the entire game against Club Brugge in the UCL.
4Leroy SaneFCB@VFB17.2M
5Filip KostićSGE@FCU14.7M
6Josip Brekalo WOBVs SVW10.3MI expect him to be a popular pick this week because of his floor and the star flexibility since he plays first. But you have to be patient with him if you expect a goal or assist.
7Giovanni ReynaBVBVs KOE7.9M
8Florian WirtzB04Vs BSC7M
9Christoph BaumgartnerTSG@M0510.6M
10Daniel Caligiuri FCAVs SCF10.3MCaligiuri's strong performance against Borussia warrants a spot in the rankings against a Freiburg team that has conceded the second highest shots and also gave Mainz their first win last week.

Defenders

1AngeliñoRBLVs DSC14.9MArminia have scored just once in the last three games and that was a Hradecky own goal. They have conceded nine goals in the same period.
2Raphaël GuerreiroBVBVs KOE15.3MGuerreiro is an easy recommendation but it is still a doubt whether he starts or not due to problems in his thigh.
3Oscar WendtBMGVs S046.4MOne advantage that Wendt has over Lainer is that he is on corner kicks and free kicks now. He even scored a stunning free kick in the midweek UCL game against Shakhtar and he is going to be a real threat against a Schalke side that has conceded a league-high nine goals from set-pieces.
4Nordi MukieleRBLVs DSC10.6MNot as attacking as Angeliño but he is a duels won monster and Arminia is too good to pass up.
5Stefan LainerBMGVs S0410.4M
6Lucas HernandezFCB@VFB12M
7Ludwig AugustinssonSVW@WOB9.5M
8Maxence LacroixWOBVs SVW4.6M
9Christopher TrimmelFCUVs SGE9.7M
10Christian GünterSCF@FCA11.5M
