Fantasy Bundesliga tips:
10 players to consider for Matchday 20
By Rune Gjerulff @runegjerulff
Here are 10 players you should consider bringing into your Fantasy Bundesliga team for Matchday 20.
Instead, we will highlight players with a maximum ownership percentage of 15%, who could offer great value as differentials for Matchday 20.
Bastian Oczipka, Union Berlin (Defender, 2.3M, 0%)
Oczipka came into Union's starting eleven after Niko Gießelmann picked up an injury, and the former Schalke 04 player could keep his starting place after impressing and providing an assist in each of his last two games. Of course, the 33-year-old is at risk of getting rotated out of the side, but with a price of just 2.3 million, he might be worth a punt.
Aaron Martin, Mainz (Defender, 3.5M, 2%)
Coming off a 15-point haul against Bochum, Aaron remains one of the best value-for-money players in the game as Mainz approach a match against bottom-placed Fürth. His teammates Jeremiah St. Juste (6.8M), Moussa Niakahaté (7M, on penalty duty) and Silvan Widmer (7.9M) are also worth considering.
Jeremie Frimpong, Leverkusen (Defender, 7.5M, 10%)
Frimpong only picked up four points against Gladbach last week after being forced off with a knock in the 56th minute, but showed plenty of attacking intent before leaving the pitch. Fortunately for Leverkusen, the 21-year-old attacking right-back is fit to feature this weekend as they face an Augsburg side, who have won just once away from home this season.
Jesper Lindstrøm, Frankfurt (Midfielder, 8.5M, 2%)
Lindstrøm hasn't been involved in a goal for the past two games, but the Dane still managed to pick up 14 points against Augsburg, and it's probably only a matter of time before he will start producing goals and assists again – especially considering Frankfurt's favorable run of fixtures. They're even playing the Friday night fixture this week, meaning that the 21-year-old will provide great flexibility.
Corentin Tolisso, Bayern (Midfielder, 9.2M, 0%)
Tolisso was handed a rare start last week and repaid the faith in him with a goal and a great performance. With Leon Goretzka sidelined indefinitely, the Frenchman should keep his place in the middle of the park.
Vincenzo Grifo, Freiburg (Midfielder, 15M, 8%)
In what was arguably their worst performance of the season, Freiburg were thrashed 5-1 by Borussia Dortmund last week in a game that saw talismanic midfielder Vincenzo Grifo come off at half-time. But with Mark Flekken and Nico Schlotterbeck back in the team, Freiburg showed a great response against Hoffenheim in mid-week, winning 4-1 after a Grifo brace. They now face a Stuttgart side, who have taken just one point from their last four games without scoring a single goal.
Andreas Voglsammer, Union Berlin (Striker, 6.5M, 0%)
After getting on the scoresheet in Union's DFB-Pokal win over Berlin rivals Hertha last night, Voglsammer has now scored two games in a row, and he will be keen to continue his good run against a struggling Gladbach side.
Jonathan Burkardt, Mainz (Striker, 8.1M, 2%)
Jonathan Burkardt is on the barren run in front of goal, having failed to find the net in his last five league games, but should have a good chance of finding his scoring touch against Fürth.
Rafael Borré, Frankfurt (Striker, 9.4M, 2%)
Borré has scored or assisted in his last six Bundesliga games and plays for a Frankfurt side with a great schedule.
Thomas Müller, Bayern (Striker, 19.4M, 14%)
Despite being owned by just 14 percent of managers, Müller is the third-highest scoring player in the game with a total of 221 points to his name. In his last three games alone, he has amassed a whopping 44 points.
