Fantasy Bundesliga tips:
10 players to consider for Matchday 22
By Rune Gjerulff @runegjerulff
Here are 10 players you should consider bringing into your Fantasy Bundesliga team for Matchday 22.
Instead, we will highlight players with a maximum ownership percentage of 15%, who could offer great value as differentials for Matchday 22.
Sven Ulreich, Bayern (Goalkeeper, 1M, 4%)
With Manuer Neuer ruled out for weeks after undergoing knee surgery, you can acquire Bayern's starting goalkeeper for the lowest possible price.
Jeremie Frimpong, Leverkusen (Defender, 8M, 11%)
The attacking full-back has been sixth-best defender in the game so far, amassing 143 points in total and 7 per game on average. Leverkusen have scored 10 goals in their last two games and will now face Stuttgart, who have one of the worst defensive records in the league.
Ramy Bensebaini, Gladbach (Defender, 10.7M, 3%)
In his first game after returning from the Africa Cup of Nations, Bensebaini picked up 13 points against Bielefeld. The 26-year-old has been used as a central defender at times this season, but played as a wing back last week and should continue there, which increases his value from a Fantasy perspective. Last but not least, he's on penalties for Gladbach.
Josko Gvardiol, RB Leipzig (Defender, 10.8M, 9%)
Before RB Leipzig's 3-2 defeat at the hands of Bayern on Matchday 21, Gvardiol had picked up a whopping 42 points between Matchday 18 and 20, with his lowest return in that period being 10 points. Leipzig can now look forward to a favorable run of fixtures until the international break in April, starting off with a Friday night fixture against FC Köln at home.
Evan Ndicka, Eintracht Frankfurt (Defender, 11.2M, 4%)
Ndicka was among our 10 picks last week, and he didn't disappoint, getting on the scoresheet and picking up 15 points. Looking at the last three games, he has scored 33 points, which is more than any other defender.
Jan Thielmann, FC Köln (Midfielder, 3.9M, 1%)
Thielmann has a tough match-up this week, with FC Köln travelling to Leipzig tomorrow evening, but still deserves a mention. The 19-year-old picked up 11 points last week, costs just 3.9 million and should start up front despite being a midfielder in the game. With many Fantasy managers likely to invest in Leipzig players, Thielmann could be a great differential, just like Patrick Wimmer was on Matchday 20, when Arminia Bielefeld surprisingly beat Eintracht Frankfurt away from home in a Friday night fixture.
Corentin Tolisso, Bayern (Midfielder, 9.6M, 2%)
Leon Goretzka remains sidelined indefinitely, meaning that Corentin Tolisso looks likely to stay in Bayern's starting eleven for weeks to come. With 38 points to his name in his last three games, he has been the joint second-highest scoring midfielder since Matchday 19 alongside Florian Wirtz and only behind Arminia Bielefeld's Patrick Wimmer, who is suspended this week.
Jonas Hofmann, Gladbach (Midfielder, 14.9M, 5%)
After his 17-point haul against Bielefeld last week, Hofmann has racked up 25 points in two games since returning from a long-term injury. With Gladbach playing at home against relegation-threatened Augsburg this week, he's a very attractive option.
Moussa Diaby, Leverkusen (Striker, 14.4M, 2%)
Patrik Schick is the most obvious option if you're looking to bring in a Leverkusen striker, but he has actually been outscored by his teammate Moussa Diaby lately. The winger has scored an impressive 41 points in his last three games and is owned by just two percent, so if you're looking for a differential, he's worth considering.
André Silva, RB Leipzig (Striker, 17.2M, 7%)
Silva has seven goals in his last nine Bundesliga games and has a great schedule coming up.
