Bundesliga Fantasy is back and Tipster Andres Garcia shares his thoughts on the players worth considering in his latest article including his own drafts.

Happy New Year to everybody! I hope you had a great holiday season and that this year you will be able to achieve all your goals. And if between these goals, there’s to win your Bundesliga Fantasy League, you’re in the right place. I will try to help and advise you with a bunch of players, strategies, and performance trends, so you can dominate your league in this second half of the season. With nothing more to add, let’s begin! Let’s start with the advice on players to buy:

Buy the “Must Own” Players

The unlimited transfer window is the clear opportunity to go grab those players who were balling all year, but in any case, they aren’t in your team. I’m talking about players like:

  • Harry Kane (FWD / FCB / 19.4M / 84%)
  • Florian Wirtz (MID / B04 / 18M / 69%)
  • Alejandro Grimaldo (DEF / B04 / 14.4M / 78%)
  • Xavi Simons (MID / RBL / 17.3M / 66%)
  • Leroy Sané (FWD / FCB / 18.6M / 36%)
  • Kevin Stöger (MID / BOC / 10.9M / 17%)

These players aren’t matchup-dependent players, so I think they have to be the cornerstone of every team. I’ll give you a Draft with all these players and other studs.

AFCON/Asia Cup or Injured Stars Replacements

To build around these players you can complete your team with short/medium-term players. In this case, we are going to talk about some players who’ll be starters and have a very good opportunity to shine thanks to the unavailability of some stars, like:

  • Patrick Schick (FWD / B04 / 11.3M / 6%) – replacement of Boniface
  • Deniz Undav (FWD / VFB / 10.7M / 10%) – replacement of Guirassy
  • Sasa Kalajdzic (or Kalimuendo/Etitiké if they arrive) – replacement of Marmoush

These three players are among the top eight forwards for the next month, and their price is affordable for any team to accompany Kane and Sané. I like Undav much more in the long term because of the probable exit of Serhou Guirassy from Stuttgart. I’ll give you a Draft with two of these players so you can compete.

Great Team Schedule (from GW17 to GW 24-25)

We all know that some players depend on the matchup to produce a good amount of points, so it is a good strategy to follow the teams with a good run of matches. Then, following the short/medium-term options to complete your team, we are gonna propose to you some teams with a good schedule for the next game weeks, so you can target some differential players between the period of the GW17 to GW24-25.

Fantasy Bundesliga Teams to Target:

  • BVB Players (Kobel, Bynoe-Gittens, Füllkrug, Maatsen?, Sancho?)
  • FCU Player (Volland, Hollerbach, Juranovic)
  • SGE players [from GW18] (Pacho, Tuta, Nkounkou)
  • TSG players (Skov, Bauman, Prömel)
  • VFB players (Mittelstädt, Führich, the right-wing between Millot and Leweling)

Among these options, I would prioritize Hollerbach (cheap and averages 9.66pts since he’s a starter), Pacho (averaged 6.43pts against the same rivals he has between GW18-24), Mittelstädt and Sancho if he finally arrives at the BVB. I will give you a Draft with many of these players so you can rotate between them during the next matchups.

Cheap, Starters, and Effective Players

To finish your team, if you need very cheap players so you can afford a large number of expensive studs, I recommend these safe floors and high-upside players:

  • Patrick Mainka (DEF / HDH / 4M / 17%)
  • Brajan Gruda (MID / M05 / 1.8M [SALE] / 7%)
  • Merlin Röhl (MID / SCF / 3.1M / 5%)
  • Jordy Makengo (DEF / SCF / 2.2M [SALE] / 4%)
  • Eren Dinkçi (FWD / HDH / 5.3M / 2%)
  • Aleksandar Pavlovic (MID / FCB / 1.4M / 5%)

All these players are starters on their teams and lately, they’re producing a good quantity of points. Buy them before their price increases.
I’ll give you some drafts with these players, so you can see various combinations you can make with these types of players in your team:

Now we go with the sell/don’t buy options:

AFCON/Asian Cup and Injured Players

These sales are obvious, but sometimes the app has bugs or doesn’t update the status of the players early, so I bring you a list of players that will be absent for a while:

  • Serhou Guirassy (VFB/ FWD/ 15M/30%) AFCON and probable exit of the league.
  • AFCON Cup: Omar Marmoush ; Haller ; Kossounou ; Naby Keïta ; Tapsoba ; Bensebaini ; Chaïbi ; Laïdouni , Skhiri ; Mazraoui ; Adli ; Silas Mvupa ; Haidara ; Samassekou.
  • Injuries: Victor Boniface ; Gnabry ; Ryerson ; Cvancara ; Philipp Max ; Geiger ; Kyereh ; Gosens ; Fofana (will be called back from Chelsea)
  • Asia Cup: Min Jae ; Ko itakura ; Ito ; Takuma Asano ; Ritsu Doan ; JaeSung Lee ; WooYeong Jeong.

Declining Schedule/Tendencies

Jonas Hofmann (B04/ MID/ 18.2M/ 35%). Even when Wirtz is out, he hasn’t produced 10+pts since GW11. Leverkusen’s offense depends more on Wirtz and the wing-backs than on him. And his high price makes him a droppable option. I would rather have Brandt, Stöger, or even Olmo when he returns from his injury.

FCB/VFB defenders: Except for Davies and Mittelstadt who have attacking upside, I would sell or not buy any defender of this team. Bayern has conceded eight goals in their last five matches. Then, on the Stuttgart side, their schedule is nice for the attacking options, but they face really good offenses and Ito (a very important player) is out.

RBL Defenders: Their schedule is very tough and they have been conceding a lot of goals in the last matches (7 in the last 5 matches). I’ll keep one between Raum/Hendrichs just because of their attacking upside.

Wolfsburg, Augsburg, and Gladbach players: Bad schedule and they’re one of the eight worst teams in the last five matches. I would especially sell Reitz.

Tim Skarke (The only useful SV Darmstadt player): Bad team, bad schedule, and I don’t see how he can keep his production.

Thank you for reading. I hope these tips can help you to build your Fantasy squad.
