1Serge GnabryFCB@S0415.3MMusiala might've scored in the last four games but Gnabry has had the higher ceiling and I am leaning towards him a bit more since he will be going up against make shift left-back Mohr.
2Jamal MusialaFCB@S0414.8M
3Leroy SanéFCB@S0416.1MThe last three Bundesliga games between these teams have ended 0-4, 8-0 and 5-0 with Bayern scoring an average of 5.6 goals per game. So double or even triple Bayern forwards isn't looking like a bad option.
4Moussa DiabyB04vs VFB13.9MSince Xabi took over, Diaby has scored five goals with two assists in five games. In that same time frame, Stuttgart have conceded 11 goals in five games. Diaby and the team are slowly gaining confidence so you would back them to win plus he gives you an alternate star options as he plays for the Bayern game.
5Randal Kolo MuaniSGE@M0512.5MIt was looking good for Mainz after they beat Koln 5-0 but after three defeats in a row including an embarrassing 1-0 loss to Schalke, I am not so confident in the Mainz defence anymore. They will bounce back eventually but I am not expecting it against Frankfurt who have won as many points as Bayern (21) in the last 10 games. Muani also plays after Bayern but flexibility might not be as important this week.
6Marcus ThuramBMGvs BVB13.4M
7Florian NiederlechnerFCAvs BOC7.2MConsistency has and will always be the biggest problem with Niederlechner but he does has have four goals and an assists in his last four starts and faces Bochum at home next.
8Andre SilvaRBL@SVW13.1M
9Youssoufa MoukokoBVB@BMG10.2MBorussia are a completely different team at home. Even more so against Dortmund. The last four Bundesliga games between these teams have all been won by the team playing at home.
10Michael GregoritschSCFvs FCU9.4M

1Christopher NkunkuRBL@SVW17.9MHe has eight goals in his last six starts if there was ever any doubt. Early favourite for POTY and he might finally win it this year.
2Leon GoretzkaFCB@S0415.2MAll of the Bayern wingers might be listed as forwards but their defensive midfielders aren't the worst options when you expect them to score 4+ goals against Schalke.
3Dominik SzoboszlaiRBL@SVW14.2M
4Daichi KamadaSGE@M0512M
5Jesper LindstrømSGE@M0513.1M
6Joshua KimmichFCB@S0417.8MDoes not attack as much when Goretzka starts but still worth a shout.
7Jonas HofmannBMGvs BVB15.3M
8Florian KainzKOE@BSC10MI would love to rank him higher but the team is losing steam and him possibly starting in his sixth game in 14 days does not help.
9Vincenzo GrifoSCFvs FCU15.6M
10Nadiem AmiriB04vs VFB7.8MHe won't score freekicks often but he seems like another player who could find his form under Xabi.

Defenders

 

RankNameTeamOpponentValueComments
1Jeremie FrimpongB04vs VFB12.5MNot rarely will anyone rank another defender higher than a Bayern defender playing against Schalke but with how high he has been playing, Frimpong is as good as any Leverkusen attacker and his next match is against Stuttgart who will be without three first-choice defenders so there is potential for points on both ends.
2Noussair MazraouiFCB@S0411.1MSchalke have only scored two goals against Bayern across all competitions since 2017. The easiest cleansheet all season.
3Lucas HernandezFCB@S0410M
4Mitchel BakkerB04vs VFB9.3M
5David RaumRBL@SVW12.5M
6Paulo OtávioWOB@TSG8.5MI am expecting both sides to score goals but it is worth noting that Wolfsburg have kept a cleansheet in three games in a row. Switch with Kabak if you think Hoffenheim will win.
7Ramy BensebainiBMGvs BVB12.6MA lot less confident about a Borussia cleansheet with Olschowsky playing.
8Niklas SüleBVB@BMG10.7M
9Julian RyersonFCU@SCF5.9M
10IagoFCAvs BOC7.5M
BonusJonas HectorKOE@BSC10MOutside cleansheet chance. Yes, the options in defence are that bad this week that I had to add a Koln defender.

1Manuel NeuerFCB@S0412.1MIf you want to go all in on Bayern and get the goalkeeper too. You are probably less likely to get a red arrow if you Bayern hoard this week anyways.
2Lukáš HrádeckýB04vs VFB9.8M
3Rafal GikiewiczFCAvs BOC6.9MOver the last few weeks Augsburg have shown how bad they are at conceding chances but that isn't bad for Gikiewicz as that means more shots to save.
4Mark FlekkenSCFvs FCU11.3MFlekken missing out on the World Cup squad feels really harsh. Depending on how he takes the news it could be more incentive for him to do better against Union.

Bundesliga Fantasy Player Rankings for Matchday 14

With just two weeks left for the World Cup break, we take a look at the best players that could help you gain rank in our Bundesliga Fantasy player rankings for the first “English Week” of the season.


Forwards

 

RankNameTeamOpponentValueComments
1Sadio ManéFCBvs SVW17.7MSince it is a midweek game, minutes are a concern and Mané tends to play full games plus was subbed off at 64 minutes in the last game while Musiala played the entire match which he rarely does.
2Marcus ThuramBMG@BOC13.2MThe player that shoots the most in the bundesliga (3.8 shots per game) against Bochum who have conceded the most shots (221). There isn't much else to say.
3Alassane PléaBMG@BOC12.2MThere is always a worry that Borussia could flop even against the worst team in the league away but I have a good feeling that they win this match convincingly with a good margin. He isn't putting up Thuram numbers but Pléa is in great form since returning from injury with five assists in five games.
4Jamal MusialaFCBvs SVW14.6M
5Marcus IngvartsenM05@S044.6MDespite his blank against Wolfsburg, he did have five shots which was more than any other Mainz player in the game and has four goals in his last five matches. Schalke have conceded the most penalties (3) after Bochum (5) so you will get some cover there too.
6Randal Kolo MuaniSGEvs TSG12.1MWas unlucky to not score in the last game but it is hard to keep him out of the action.
7Youssoufa MoukokoBVB@WOB10.1MI would like to think that Diaby is the best forward with a standalone fixture this week but odds seem to suggest that Moukoko is a better pick with a 38% chance of scoring. They did give him the second-highest goal scoring odds last week (49%) and he ended up being the highest scoring player for the week tied with Choupo-Moting who was just below him with a goal scoring probability of 47%.
8Moussa DiabyB04@KOE13.6MFour goals and two assists in his last five Bundesliga games but still underrated as a whole by Bundesliga fans and Bundesliga Fantasy managers.
9Sheraldo BeckerFCUvs FCA11MUnion and Becker are out of form but both have to bounce back eventually, especially if the aim is a top four finish. Augsburg have been conceding lots of big chances lately and this could be the game where Becker turns his form around.
10Serhou GuirassyVFBvs BSC8.4MHertha are in bad form too but both teams have shown a lot of fight in the last few weeks and this could be game with lots of goals as six points are on the line. I just find Guirassy a lot more risky with so many good games this week.




Midfielders

 

RankNameTeamOpponentValueComments
1Jonas HofmannBMG@BOC15.4M
2Christopher NkunkuRBLvs SCF17.5MSimply the most fixture-proof player in the league right now. He has seven goals in his last six Bundesliga games and is now the top scorer in the league with 11 goals.
3Daichi KamadaSGEvs TSG11.7M
4Joshua KimmichFCBvs SVW17.4MKimmich's best scores came when Sabitzer partnered him in midfield as his defensive work rate helped him attack more and with Goretzka possibly being replaced by Sabitzer for this game, I am tempted to transfer him in.

Even more so when I think about how Schalke with the least shots in the league (109) after Augsburg (93) managed to have the most shots in MD13 with 19 shots away against Werder Bremen.
5Lars StindlBMG@BOC10.3MWas rested in the last game so I am a little less worried about him being subbed early.
6Florian KainzKOEvs B0410MI like Kainz as a differential this week. Leverkusen might've drubbed league-leaders Union 5-0 but I am still a bit skeptical about them keeping a cleansheet in this game. Might be goals on both ends with how terrible both defences have been.
7Anton StachM05@S0410MFairly inconsistent this year but against Schalke, I am willing to give him a chance.
8Dominik SzoboszlaiRBLvs SCF13.8M
9Jude BellinghamBVB@WOB14.4MDortmund are still favourites in the game but surprisingly, they had the least shots on MD13 with just six against Bochum despite scoring three goals and that is putting me a bit off.
10Vincenzo GrifoSCF@RBL15.6MThis game looks evenly matched on paper but historically, Leipzig are unbeaten in their last six games against Freiburg and the last three games between these two sides across all competitions have ended 1-1. So there isn't much attacking potential for Grifo.

Defenders

 

RankNameTeamOpponentValueComments
1Ramy BensebainiBMG@BOC12.6M
2Aarón MartínM05@S048.5MOn set-pieces + great cleansheet odds this week.
3Lucas HernandezFCBvs SVW10MHernandez has the left-back spot on lock until the World Cup with Davies being out injured unlike Mazraoui who could still lose his spot when De Ligt returns for the game against Schalke later this week. And Hernandez' ability to win lots of duels should give him a decent floor.
4Jeremie FrimpongB04@KOE12.2MKoln have scored the least goals in the last three games (1) and also conceded the most goals over the last six games (16) so possibly there will be points on both ends for Frimpong here. Not a bad punt till the break considering he plays Stuttgart at home next week too.
5Silvan WidmerM05@S049.4M
6Niklas SüleBVB@WOB10.6MLike I mentioned above, Dortmund just didn't create many chances against Bochum but Süle's heatmap indicates that he was a lot more attacking than Guerreiro.
7Borna SosaVFBvs BSC12.6MOther than the game against Dortmund which Stuttgart lost 0-5, Sosa is averaging 15 points in his last four starts with an assist in each of those games. Most overlooked player in the game right now?
8Noussair MazraouiFCBvs SVW10.7M
9Julian RyersonFCUvs FCA5.7M
10David RaumRBLvs SCF12.5MFreiburg always seem to score against Leipzig so he is probably the first name to leave my team this week.

1Manuel NeuerFCBvs SVW12.2M

3Robin ZentnerM05@S046.9M
4Mark FlekkenSCF@RBL11.4MFlekken has nine points in each of his last three games. Consistency.
5Jiri PavlenkaSVW@FCB5.8MMany keepers register their highest scores against Bayern because they are forced to make lots of saves. Maybe this could be the game for Pavlenka.

1Eric Maxim Choupo-MotingFWDFCBvs SVW5.5MChoupo-Moting now has a return in each of his last seven games. Not even Messi can say that...

3Nadiem AmiriMIDB04@KOE7.8MAlternate midfield option and pretty much the only attacking one from Leverkusen.
4Sven MichelFWDFCUvs FCA4.6M
5Dodi LukebakioFWDBSC@VFB8.8MOne yellow card away from suspension.

Bundesliga Fantasy Player Rankings for Matchday 13

Bayern’s Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting is in the form of his career in his 16th season with eight goals and three assists in just his last eight matches so it only makes sense that he deserves a spot in our Bundesliga Fantasy player rankings for matchday 13.

RankNameTeamOpponentValueComments
1Niclas FüllkrugSVWvs S047.7MLeft it late against Hertha last time out but Schalke is much easier opposition.
2Marcus ThuramBMGvs VFB13M
3Jamal MusialaFCB@BSC14.3MAlmost fixture-proof at this point and well rested for the game against Hertha.
4Sadio ManéFCB@BSC17.7MAlso considered Gnabry and Choupo-Moting who are also in great form but I prefer the higher upside of Mané and Gnabry has a terrible record against Hertha (1G, 2A in 11 matches).
5Randal Kolo MuaniSGE@FCA12MAugsburg still can't stop conceding goals and to make matters worse, they conceded 31 shots against Stuttgart in the last game which was their highest total in a game since 2007...
6Marvin DuckschSVWvs S048MAlways matching the number of shots+key passes that Füllkrug or out does him. Just needs to finish his chances.
7Alassane PléaBMGvs VFB11.9MWith Hofmann out, Pléa will be a lot more busy with playmaking but that just makes Thuram+Pléa one of the best double ups for this week in a matchday where I wish we had five forward spots instead of three. Plus, he plays Bochum next.
8Youssoufa MoukokoBVBvs BOC9.7MThe only Dortmund forward predicted to start this week so you are not spoilt for choice.
9Andre SilvaRBL@TSG12.8MThe biggest winner from Werner's departure. Silva has already had a good start to life under Marco Rose with four goals and four assists in just 13 games and now should be nailed to start most games until Werner is back. One for the long term.
10Sheraldo BeckerFCU@B0411MLeverkusen have conceded the most goals over the last three games (9, same as Bochum) and that probably makes Becker a great differential now that most he has blanked in five games in a row and most serious managers won't own him.




Midfielders

 

RankNameTeamOpponentValueComments
1Christopher NkunkuRBL@TSG17.1M
2Jude BellinghamBVBvs BOC14.4MBellingham has been a different player since Reus got injured and is now up to nine goals and two assists this season in 19 matches making him the top-scorer for Dortmund despite playing as a central midfielder. With form like that, you would back him to score against Bochum.
3Jesper LindstrømSGE@FCA12.7MKamada being ruled out will keep the debate him and Lindstrøm out for a while and I think he might do even better in his absence against Augsburg.
4Vincenzo GrifoSCFvs KOE15.5MThe Köln fixture might not seem like the worst on paper but they have conceded the most goals over the last six games (16) and might miss Hector on this game.
5Julian BrandtBVBvs BOC13.1M
6Lars StindlBMGvs VFB10.3MDoes not have the same upside as he used to have but not a bad pick nonetheless. Replace him with Hofmann if he starts.
7Dominik SzoboszlaiRBL@TSG13.5M
8Leon GoretzkaFCB@BSC14.6MIt is going unnoticed but Goretzka has three goal involvements in his last four games and double-digit scores in the three out of his last four games.
9Florian KainzKOE@SCF10.1MI would like to think that he will score in this game but Streich rested the entire backline except Günter midweek meanwhile Kainz might be starting in his third game in a row in just six days.
10Leonardo BittencourtSVWvs S044.7MWill randomly score once in a while but remains hard to predict as always.
BonusAnton StachM05vs WOB10.1MA goal and two assists in his last four games. Faces Schalke next.

Defenders

 

RankNameTeamOpponentValueComments
1Mitchel WeiserSVWvs S044.8MSchalke have only scored once in their last three games and haven't won away in the league in three years. Sure you still don't want Weiser?
2Alphonso DaviesFCB@BSC16.8MWith De Ligt being ruled out, Pavard will likely play as a center-back and Davies is the next best thing.
3Raphael GuerreiroBVBvs BOC12.3MMaybe it is last season's 3-4 Bochum win against Dortmund still lingering in my head but I have a hunch that they score again over here. Regardless, the attacking potential of both BVB full-backs should be on full display over here.
4Ramy BensebainiBMGvs VFB12.4M
5Niklas SüleBVBvs BOC10.6M
6Noussair MazraouiFCB@BSC10.7MIt is not a bad idea to hoard Bayern players until the World Cup break. They play Hertha, Werder Bremen and Schalke next so I am expecting all nine points and plenty of goals.
7Aarón MartínM05vs WOB8.6MJust have a strong feeling that Mainz bounce back against Wolfsburg.
8Christian GünterSCFvs KOE13.9M
9David RaumRBL@TSG12.4M
10Christopher TrimmelFCU@B049.8MJust be careful because apparently no Union wing-back is nailed this week.

1Jiri PavlenkaSVWvs S045.7M
2Manuel NeuerFCB@BSC12.2MStill a slight chance that Ulreich plays ove rhim.
3Gregor KobelBVBvs BOC10.5MThe most in-form goalkeeper in the league and that is starting to slowly reflect in his scores.
4Robin ZentnerM05vs WOB7.2MFlying under the radar despite averaging 7.6 points per game across his last five matches.
5Florian MüllerVFB@BMG6.8MSippel has the better cleansheet odds but Florian Müller is much better at saving shots and that is more important because Borussia will probably bombard him with it.

3Mergim BerishaFWDFCAvs SGE9MI feel like Ligainsider got their Frankfurt predicted lineup wrong but there is no way that Jakic plays center-back against Augsburg?
4Janis BlaswichGKPRBL@TSG3.2M

Bundesliga Fantasy Player Rankings for Matchday 12

After a chaotic set of midweek games that saw Barcelona get knocked out by Bayern Munich and FC Köln have a match finish a day later than originally planned, the Bundesliga returns for another exciting weekend, and so do our player rankings for matchday 12.

RankNameTeamOpponentValueComments
1Jamal MusialaFCBvs M0514M
2Niclas FüllkrugSVWvs BSC7.4MAlready has one foot in the World Cup squad, now needs to score in the next two home games against Hertha and Schalke to confirm his spot.
3Serge GnabryFCBvs M0514.9MProbably the most overlooked player right now. Serge Gnabry has one goal and six assists in his last four games across all competitions.
4Michael GregoritschSCF@S049MThe best fixture possible but his recent form and possible new manager bounce for Schalke does not make him a must-have for me.
5Lukas NmechaWOBvs BOC11.4MThis game might be more evenly matched then we think. Bochum did not just beat the league leaders last week but they also managed to hold them to just eight shots in the game. Also a small chance that Nmecha gets rotated because of poor form.
6Timo WernerRBLvs B0414.6MOther than the game against Schalke, Leverkusen have conceded an average of three goals in their last four matches under Xavi, so it doesn't seem like their defence will improve any time soon.
7Mergim BerishaFCA@VFB8.8MBerisha has two goals and four assists in his last five Bundesliga games alone and it is hard to imagine this game not having goals with Stuttgart not having kept a cleansheet in their last seven Bundesliga games.
8Sheraldo BeckerFCUvs BMG11.1M
9Silas Katompa MvumpaVFBvs FCA10.7MStuttgart might be struggling defensively but Augsburg are even worse. They have conceded 11 goals in just their last three games across all competitions against Koln, Bayern and Leipzig.

Silas put on a star show against Bochum recently with two goals and an assist so he might be worth a shout if you want to do something a little off the wall. Not to mention that Augsburg might field a second-choice right-back and third-choice left-back this week.
10Marcus ThuramBMG@FCU13.1M
BonusAndrej KramarićTSG@KOEFC Köln will be without both first-choice center-back Kilian and first-choice left-back Hector this week. Adding to an already hectic schedule of two games in two days.

1Christopher NkunkuRBLvs B0416.9MThat win against Real Madrid might just be what Leipzig needed to push for a top four spot/title (if it isn't too late).
2Vincenzo GrifoSCF@S0415.1MGrifo might not be the shiniest, most exciting toy on the shelf when shopping for our few big ticket players this week, but his well-rounded fantasy game and set-piece responsibilities always pays off against the worst sides.
3Dominik SzoboszlaiRBLvs B0413.2M
4Yannick GerhardtWOBvs BOC6.4MWolfsburg's top-scorer this season even though he has started in just four games.
5Ritsu DoanSCF@S049.2M
6Daichi KamadaSGEvs BVB11.7MSurprisingly, SGE-BVB tends to be a high-scoring game with an average of four goals per game in the last two matches against both sides. So I might just hold onto Kamada as he plays Augsburg next.
7Christoph BaumgartnerTSG@KOE12.7MAny Hoffenheim player is worth a punt against a tired Köln side this week but Baumgartner is probably my favourite.
8Maximilian ArnoldWOBvs BOC11.3MHe is rediscovering some of his old form now that he has a chance of making the World Cup squad and could be worth a punt against the team that has conceded the most set-piece goals so far.

1Mitchel WeiserSVWvs BSC4.4MGet him in your team if you haven't already.
2Christian GünterSCF@S0413.5M
3Paulo OtávioWOBvs BOC7.8MAnother massively overlooked player because no one pays attention to Wolfsburg but he is averaging 10.75 points per game over his last four matches. He is one of the best players at winning duels in the week and has also been more involved in the attack lately with three assists in his last four.
4Benjamin PavardFCBvs M0512.3MThis season Bayern have dominated almost every team from Bochum to Barcelona but having followed Mainz under Bo Svensson for a while, they can surprise any team. Bayern might have one of the best cleansheet odds for the week but it is worth noting that Mainz have scored in every game against them since Bo took over.
5AngeliñoTSG@KOE12.7M
6Niklas SüleBVB@SGE10.7MBundesliga Fantasy managers will know that Süle is a different beast when he plays as a right-back. Think of Frimpong but slightly less attacking.

Bundesliga Fantasy Player Rankings for Matchday 11

There are many exciting fixtures on matchday 11. Still, the one that stands out in our Bundesliga Fantasy player rankings is the match between table toppers Union Berlin against bottom-of-the-table Bochum. Read on to find out more about our picks for the week.

1Sheraldo BeckerFCU@BOC11.1MAlthough he isn't as explosive now as he was at the start of the season, you would want to back him against Bochum because of the matchup.
2Jordan SiebatcheuFCU@BOC8.2MSlightly doubtful but should start. Also been slightly inconsistent like Becker but targeting Bochum to conceded goals almost always works out (unless you own Frankfurt players against them).
3Jamal MusialaFCB@TSG13.7MThe best Bayern attacker on his day.
4Marcus ThuramBMGvs SGE12.9MStill split between Thuram and Plea who should be even more involved now that Hofmann is out but it is hard to overlook Thuram who has been in the top five for shots almost every week.
5Sadio ManéFCB@TSG17.3M
6Dodi LukebakioBSCvs S048.5MStevan Jovetić might seem like a more fun punt but Lukebakio has scored in each of his last three games and is also on penalties.
7Michael GregoritschSCFvs SVW8.9M
8Youssoufa MoukokoBVBvs VFB9.3MThe fact that he is averaging 0.56 goals per 90 over Modeste's 0.22 goals per 90 says it all.

1Dominik SzoboszlaiRBL@FCA12.9MAs if the midfield options weren't bad enough already, Hofmann is out and Nkunku is doubtful for this week. The only positive is that Szoboszlai is guaranteed to start. Although Nkunku has most of the limelight, Szoboszlai is meant to be Rose's star player and even got two assists last week while Nkunku blanked.
2Vincenzo GrifoSCFvs SVW14.7MWerder Bremen might be in the top half of the table but they have kept the same number of cleansheets this season (1) as Bochum and Schalke.
3Daichi KamadaSGE@BMG11.7M
4Florian KainzKOE@M059.6MThe early game this week feels like a trap but I also cannot ignore the fact that Mainz have the worst home record in the league with just three points and no wins but also the best away record at the same time with 12 points. Since we have five transfers every week, Kainz might as well be worth a punt.
5Yannick GerhardtWOB@B046.5MThree goals in his last three games and if you have played Bundesliga Fantasy before, you know it is no fluke because Gerhardt is capable of that. You might want to get him this week or next to fill your budget midfielder slot as he faces Leverkusen then Bochum.
6Jude BellinghamBVBvs VFB13.6MThe closest thing that Dortmund have to Reus right now.
8Ritsu DoanSCFvs SVW9.2M
7Julian BrandtBVBvs VFB13M
9Lars StindlBMGvs SGE10.2MGladbach have only lost one of their last eight Bundesliga games against Eintracht Frankfurt (W4, D3) but the Eagles have also picked up more points away against Borussia than any other side in their history. Two contrasting facts but I am still leaning towards a draw with goals for both sides.
10Leon GoretzkaFCB@TSG14.3M

Defenders

 

RankNameTeamOpponentValueComments
1Julian RyersonFCU@BOC5.8MThe best defence in the league against the worst attack is as lopsided as it gets. My only worry is that he has played the entirety of each of the last three matches but Ligainsider predicts thatTrimmel is the one who could be rotated even though he was rotated for the Pokal game.

Update: Niko Gießelmann is now predicted to start over Ryerson.
2Raphael GuerreiroBVBvs VFB12MStuttgart have scored 10 goals in their last two games against Bochum and Arminia but I don't think it is a sign that they have turned their form around because both teams are at the bottom of Bundesliga and 2. Bundesliga.
3Benjamin PavardFCB@TSG12.1MHoffenheim have been in free-scoring form but them scoring against Bayern seems more unlikely than not.
4David RaumRBL@FCA12.5M
5Marvin PlattenhardtBSCvs S046.8MHe hasn't paid off this year but his set-pieces and matchup against Schalke make him a solid differential.
6Jeremie FrimpongB04vs WOB11.5M
7Jonas HectorKOE@M0510.4MMainz have only scored two goals at home this season. For comparison, even Bochum have scored five and Schalke eight.
8Ramy BensebainiBMGvs SGE12.5MBorussia have a tendency to beat big teams at home, which is why I am leaning towards Bensebaini rather than a Frankfurt defender.
9Mitchel WeiserSVW@SCF4.4MI just can't imagine him not conceding this week.
10Paulo OtávioWOB@B047.7MThree assists in his last three games but is overlooked by most. Also one yellow card away from suspension.

1Tobias SippelGKPBMGvs SGE2MHe could keep his spot till the World Cup break but it is best to wait for more updates.
2Paul JaeckelDEFFCU@BOC6.1MCheapest Union Berlin defender.
3Eric Maxim Choupo-MotingFWDFCB@TSG4.5MThe first thing that comes to mind when you think of Choupo-Moting will always be Stoke City but he is more than that. The last two games have been his first starts of the season and he already has three goals and two assists!
4Marcus IngvartsenFWDM05vs KOE4.5MHas scored in his last two games and as bad as Mainz might be at home, Koln have been terrible defensively and have conceded nine goals in their last three Bundesliga matches.

RankNameTeamOpponentValueComments
1Leroy SanéFCBvs SCF15.7MNot Musiala but in even better form with four goals and an assist in his last four games across all competitions and unlike Mane, he was subbed off early in the midweek game.
2Andrej KramarićTSG@S0413.8MIt might come as a surprise to some but Schalke have the worse form in the league, even worse than Bochum. They have shipped 16 goals in their last six games and might be without two first-choice center-backs in the next game. Kramarić hasn't been at his best but with five goals and three assists in his last seven games against Schalke, I am fairly confident of him getting a decent score unless Schalke cause an upset like they did last year.
3Niclas FüllkrugSVWvs M057.3MThe most clinical finisher in Germany right now and plays for the team that has scored that has scored the most goals in the last six games (13) against the team that has conceded the second most goals (11) in the same period.
4Marcus ThuramBMG@WOB12.5M
5Timo WernerRBLvs BSC14.8M
6Randal Kolo MuaniSGEvs B0411.1MBayer Leverkusen beating Schalke 4-0 but then losing 0-4 to Porto at home shows that they haven't really turned their form around.
7Moussa DiabyB04@SGE13.8MSo Frankfurt might be without both first-choice wingbacks and will have to play at Jakić at center-back? It isn't looking too good for them.
8Alassane PléaBMG@WOB11.5MDoesn't shoot as much as Thuram but is better at setting up other player and finishing the chances he gets. Ranked below Thuram because he could get limited minutes.
9Marvin DuckschSVWvs M057.7MAfter going goalless in his first six games, he is now reigniting his partnership with Füllkrug and has two goals and an assist in his last three games. Not the worst double-up if you want to cheap in attack.
10Tiago TomásVFBvs BOC7.8MOutside pick for goal-scorer.




Midfielders

 

RankNameTeamOpponentValueComments
1Christopher NkunkuRBLvs BSC16.7MQuite easily the best midfielder this week.
2Jonas HofmannBMG@WOB15.2MPléa could slightly hurt his scores but still one of the best midfielders in fantasy.
3Daichi KamadaSGEvs B0411.3MIf you haven't joined the Kamada hype train yet, it isn't too late.
4Christoph BaumgartnerTSG@S0412.4MPredicted to play OOP as a striker against Schalke. Doesn't get better if you want a differential.
5Lars StindlBMG@WOB10.3MA return in every game since he has come back from injury.
6Leon GoretzkaFCBvs SCF14.2MEvery year Goretzka hits purple patch at least once where he gets involved in goals a lot. This might be one of those times as he has three goals and two assists in his last three games.
7Chris FührichVFBvs BOC7.1MIf you expect Stuttgart to win.
8Jude BellinghamBVB@FCU13.5MBellingham has more goals than Modeste this season.
9Linton MainaKOEvs FCA4MAlso predicted to play OOP as a striker.
10Philipp FörsterBOC@VFB3.9MIf you expect Bochum to cause an upset.

Defenders

1Mitchel WeiserSVWvs M054.6MAveraging 11 points a game in his last four games even without a cleansheet.
2David RaumRBLvs BSC12.5M
3AngeliñoTSG@S0412.4MOne week exception for owning a Hoffenheim defender.
4Konstantinos MavropanosVFBvs BOC12.1MSosa has struggled to replicate his form without Sasa so I prefer Mavropanos over him for his goal-threat from headers.
5Benjamin PavardFCBvs SCF12.1MHe is good as long as he doesn't play at center-back.
6Ramy BensebainiBMG@WOB12.4M
7Ozan KabakTSG@S048.2MSchalke only had two shots in the entire game against Leverkusen and just three against Dortmund. So it isn't surprising that they didn't score in both games.
8Jonas HectorKOEvs FCA10.4MKoln have been prone to defensive errors lately so it might be a while until they keep a cleansheet again.
9Jeremie FrimpongB04@SGE11.7M
10Julian RyersonFCUvs BVB5.6M




Goalkeepers

1Manuel RiemannBOC@VFB9MWith two of the lowest-scoring teams going head to head, either team can keep a cleansheet in this game.
2Mark FlekkenSCF@FCB11MExpecting this to be a high-scoring games but there should be saves aplenty for Flekken.
3Florian MüllerVFBvs BOC6.7M
4Janis BlaswichRBLvs BSC3.5MCheapest starting keeper in the game and should keep his spot till 2023 at least.
