We have found three Fantasy Bundesliga investments you could make for this weekend's matchday.
Alassane Pléa (Borussia Mönchengladbach), striker - 11.5M

The French striker has been in fine form this season, scoring five times in his first seven Bundesliga appearances. Priced at just 11.5M and with some favorable fixtures coming up for Gladbach (Mainz, Freiburg, Fortuna Düsseldorf, Werder Bremen and Hannover 96 are their next five opponents), he looks like a must-have player. Other good options to consider from Gladbach are Matthias Ginter (defender, 12M), who is a big danger from set pieces, Jonas Hofmann (midfielder, 9.1M), who is really thriving this season, and - of course - Thorgan Hazard (striker, 14.1M).
Evan N'Dicka (Eintracht Frankfurt), defender - 2.4M
Wow - this is a bargain! The central defender, who costs just 2.4M, has started every game this season and scored once for an Eintracht Frankfurt side that is currently in-form. 'Die Adler' have won their last three games and will take on manageable opponents in the coming rounds in the form of Fortuna Düsseldorf (home), FC Nürnberg (away) and VfB Stuttgart (away). Another Frankfurt player to look at is Luka Jovic (striker, 8.8M). The forward showed fine form before the international break and has scored three goals and made one assist in his last three appearances in all tournaments. With Ante Rebic out due to suspension, Jovic looks a certain starter against Fortuna Düsseldorf on Friday evening.
Dan-Axel Zagadou (Borussia Dortmund), defender - 4.9M
Another cheap defender who could be worth bringing into your squad. The young centre-back has started the last three games for league leaders Borussia Dortmund and is set to stay in the line-up for the upcoming rounds with Manuel Akanji ruled out for three weeks with an injury. Another option from Borussia Dortmund is obviously the in-form Paco Alcacer (striker, 11.7M) who should be in the line-up for this weekend's match against VfB Stuttgart after he came off the bench to score a hattrick against Augsburg in his last game for the BVB.
