Fantasy Bundesliga tips:
10 players to consider for Matchday 7
By Rune Gjerulff @runegjerulff
Here are 10 players you should consider bringing into your Fantasy Bundesliga team for Matchday 7.
Instead, we will highlight players with a maximum ownership percentage of 15%, who could offer great value as differentials for Matchday 7.
Aaron Martin, Mainz (Defender, 8.1M, 4%)
If you're looking to bring in a player from the Friday night fixture between Mainz and Hertha, Aaron is one of the better options. Mainz will be determined to bounce back from last week's disappointing 1-4 defeat against Hoffenheim, which should be seen in light of the red card Alexander Hack received just before half-time. The Spaniard finished with negative points last time out, but demonstrated his Fantasy potential on Matchday 5, scoring a whopping 22 points against Gladbach after smashing home a free-kick.
Pavel Kaderabek, Hoffenheim (Defender, 8.3M, 0%)
Kaderabek made his return to the starting line-up against Mainz last week and didn't disappoint, getting on the scoresheet and racking up 14 points. Owned by 0 percent of the Fantasy Bundesliga managers, the Czech international has a lot of differential value and offers good flexibility, with Hoffenheim playing the last game of the Matchday at home against Freiburg.
Noussair Mazraoui, Bayern (Defender, 10.7M, 1%)
Mazraoui looks set to start at right-back for Bayern against Augsburg after replacing Benjamin Pavard in the first half of Tuesday's 2-0 Champions League win over Barcelona. With a price of 10.7 million, he's cheaper than Bayern's other starting defenders, and his ownership is lower too.
Jeremie Frimpong, Leverkusen (Defender, 11.2M, 11%)
After providing two assists in Leverkusen's impressive 2-0 victory over Atletico Madrid, Frimpong is being tipped to start on the wing at home against Werder Bremen.
Jean-Paul Boetius, Hertha (Midfielder, 6M, 0%)
With Suat Serdar ruled out, the former Mainz midfielder looks set to start against his former club on Friday evening. An attacking midfielder with creative spark, Boetius proved at Mainz that he is capable of chipping in with both goals and assists in the Bundesliga.
Dominik Szoboszlai, RB Leipzig (Midfielder, 12.1M, 1%)
Szoboszlai has played every minute in Marco Rose's first two games as RB Leipzig coach and showed how much of a difference-maker he can be last week, scoring 18 points against Borussia Dortmund. There is a slight chance Szoboszlai will be rotated against Gladbach after playing 90 minutes against Real Madrid in mid-week, but the Hungarian midfielder is projected to start by all reliable sources. If he indeed starts, the 21-year-old could be a great differential this weekend, with Leipzig playing a stand-alone game against Gladbach on Saturday evening.
Christoph Baumgartner, Hoffenheim (Midfielder, 12.1M, 5%)
Baumgartner scored an impressive 16 points against Mainz last week, taking his points tally to 52 for the season (9 per game on average). Ahead of their home game with Freiburg on Sunday evening, Hoffenheim have won all their three games at Rhein-Neckar-Arena this season, and they're likely to be more fresh than their opponents, who face Olympiacos away from home in the Europa League tonight.
Julian Brandt, Borussia Dortmund (Midfielder, 12.5M, 3%)
Coming off a spirited performance against Manchester City, Borussia Dortmund have one of the most attractive match-ups this week, taking on local rivals Schalke 04 at home. Marco Reus (15.3M, 34%) and Jude Bellingham (12.9M, 35%) are the most obvious BVB midfielders think about, but if you're looking for an alternative with a lower ownership percentage, Brandt is worth considering.
Jordan, Union Berlin (Striker, 7.7M, 6%)
Sheraldo Becker has stolen the headlines for Union after an outstanding start to the season, but Jordan, his partner in crime up front, has done quite well too. Owned by just 6% and with a price of just 7.7 million, the U.S. international has scored an impressive 10 points per game on average so far this season.
Patrik Schick, Leverkusen (Striker, 15.7M, 7%)
Many Fantasy Bundesliga managers were left disappointed by Schick earlier this season, but the Czech international is once again starting to look like the player, who couldn't stop scoring last season. Schick has found the net in each of his last two league games, Leverkusen play a Werder side, who have conceded at least two goals in four of their six league matches this season, and should have plenty of confidence going into the game following their mid-week win over Atletico Madrid.
