In this article, we take a look at our selected template team as well as the players we can target to bring in this matchday, using our 3 transfers.


In this regard, the word 'template' refers to players who are highly owned, regularly scoring good fantasy points and being main players for their teams.

Below, you'll find the template team from last week and the latest Fantasy score of each player.

Goalkeepers:
Mark Flekken, Freiburg (7.8M), 5 points
Manuel Riemann, Bochum (6M), 10 points

Defenders:
Benjamin Pavard, Bayern (12.3M), 7 points
Aarón Martín, Mainz (3.8M), 11 points
Jeremie Frimpong, Leverkusen (7.9M), 2 points
Angelino, RB Leipzig (14.9M), 0 points
Nico Schlotterbeck, Freiburg (10.1M), 18 points

Midfielders:
Jonas Hofmann, Gladbach (15.4M), 6 points
Joshua Kimmich, Bayern (17.3M), 4 points
Vincenzo Grifo, Freiburg (15.6M), 7 points
Christopher Nkunku, RB Leipzig (18.6M), 17 points
Florian Wirtz, Leverkusen (14.7M), 3 points


Strikers:
Robert Lewandowski, Bayern (23.3M), 21 points
Thomas Müller, Bayern (20.2M), 6 points
André Silva, RB Leipzig (17.2M), 2 points


TRANSFER 1
Thomas Müller OUT, Anthony Modeste IN

With a shortage of strikers around due to the absence of Schick, Müller and now probably Reus, who got injured in Dortmund's Europa League match last night, I have decided to put faith in Modeste. 15 goals in Bundesliga so far and playing for an attacking Köln team, who are pushing for Europe, the onus will be on Modeste to score against Fürth. Fürth have improved defensively in recent matches and have a good record, but I still think Köln’s attack with Modeste in it will be too much to keep out.

Since there is a lack of forwards this week in most teams, I believe making the right investment up front could lead to a huge rank gain for the week. Other suggested forwards are Andrej Kramarić (Hoffenheim, 16.2M) and André Silva (RB Leipzig, 17.2M) (safe picks) + Jonathan Burkardt (Mainz, 8.7M) and Branimir Hrgota (Greuther Fürth, 8.4M) (differential picks).

TRANSFER 2:
Benjamin Pavard OUT, Benjamin Hübner IN

Hübner's return marked an improved defensive performance for Hoffenheim. He has 19 points and 10 points in his last 2 matches and has looked a threat from set pieces and corners. A standalone game against Stutgart, who have struggled away from home, is just the game Hübner can excel in.

TRANSFER 3:
Jonas Hofmann OUT, Dani Olmo IN

With the team looking settled for this week, we are taking out Hofmann and bringing in Olmo to attack the Bochum fixture. Hofmann has a tough game against Wolfsburg, who have looked compact in defense and have not been conceding many chances. Olmo looked in good form in the last game against Hertha, scoring and providing 2 assists. Considering Leipzig's form and his early substitution in Europa league, he looks good to start and do well against Bochum.
