Fantasy Bundesliga tips:
10 players to consider for Matchday 24
By Rune Gjerulff @runegjerulff
Here are 10 players you should consider bringing into your Fantasy Bundesliga team for Matchday 24.
Instead, we will highlight players with a maximum ownership percentage of 15%, who could offer great value as differentials for Matchday 24.
Aaron Martin, Mainz (Defender, 3.8M, 3%)
With a price of just 3.8 million, Aaron remains one of the best value for money players in the game. Playing as a left wing-back, the Spaniard has picked up seven points per game on average this season and should take plenty of confidence from last week's 3-2 win over Leverkusen, which saw him score his first ever goal for Mainz from a direct free kick. Apart from next week's clash with Borussia Dortmund, Mainz have a great schedule until the international break, with games against Union Berlin, Augsburg and Arminia Bielefeld on the horizon. The only downside with Aaron is that he's just one yellow card away from getting suspended.
Benno Schmitz, FC Köln (Defender, 4.7M, 6%)
It's always worth considering investing in players, who will be facing Greuther Fürth, even if the bottom-placed side have improved considerably in 2022. Playing on the right side of defence for Köln, Schmitz seems like a player you can't really go wrong with this week considering his low price and good returns this season (134 points in total, 6 on average per game).
Pavel Kaderabek, Hoffenheim (Defender, 9.6M, 0%)
Having fought his way back from a hamstring injury, Kaderabek should be fit enough to start against one of the Bundesliga's most out-of-form sides, VfB Stuttgart, on Friday. A defender who likes to get forward, Kaderabek notched up an assist against Wolfsburg last week after coming on as a substitute.
Chris Führich, Stuttgart (Midfielder, 5.6M, 0%)
If you're looking to go against the stream and invest in Stuttgart away at Hoffenheim, Führich is certainly an interesting option. The former Borussia Dortmund winger has been a rare bright spot for 'Die Schwaben' this season and has amassed a respectable 26 points from his last three games despite Stuttgart's poor run of form.
Patrick Wimmer, Arminia Bielefeld (Midfielder, 6.5M, 5%)
Picking up an Arminia Bielefeld player when they're playing Bayer Leverkusen away can seem irrational, but Wimmer appears to be fixture proof at the moment. The young winger has been in sensational form in 2022, racking up 14 points per game on average since the league's restart, and is available for just 6.5 million.
Jamal Musiala, Bayern (Midfielder, 12.8M, 9%)
With Thomas Müller ruled out due to COVID-19, Musiala has been tipped to start in attacking midfield against Eintracht Frankfurt. The 18-year-old has a high ceiling, as he showed against Wolfsburg on Matchday 17 (17-point haul) or against Mainz on Matchday 15 (13-point haul).
Vincenzo Grifo, Freiburg (Midfielder, 15.6M, 7%)
Admittedly, Grifo has been rather disappointing in recent weeks, but he has the potential to blow up this weekend, with Freiburg facing crisis-hit Hertha BSC at home. Hertha are coming off a 1-6 defeat against RB Leipzig – their seventh game without a win in all competitions – and the absence of first-choice goalkeeper Alexander Schwolow is a huge blow for them.
Jonas Wind, Wolfsburg (Striker, 9.5M, 0%)
Wind has hit the ground running following his January move from FC Copenhagen and scored his first goal for Wolfsburg in last week's 1-2 defeat against Hoffenheim. With 'Die Wölfe' facing Gladbach, who lost 6-0 to Dortmund on Matchday 23, and out-of-form Union Berlin in their next two games, the Danish striker could be a good differential.
Anthony Modeste, FC Köln (Striker, 10M, 8%)
Modeste is already on 15 league goals this season. After working his way back from COVID-19, the French striker should be back in the starting eleven when Köln take on bottom-placed Greuther Fürth.
Andrej Kramaric, Hoffenheim (Striker, 16.2M, 3%)
Kramaric can be a real difference-maker when he's on his game and provides excellent flexibility as Hoffenheim face crisis-hit Stuttgart on Friday evening.
