3 Fantasy Bundesliga investments you could make for matchday 15

Here are our Fantasy Bundesliga tips for matchday 15.
|SC Freiburg have some tasty fixtures coming up.|
After last week's impressive 3-0 win over RB Leipzig, Freiburg have three great fixtures - Fortuna Düsseldorf (A), Hannover 96 (H), FC Nürnberg (A) - coming up before Christmas. We believe it could be worth taking a punt on Luca Waldschmidt who is their top scorer this season. The former Hamburger SV player may just have scored four goals, but three of them - as well as two assists - have come in Freiburg's last five Bundesliga games. It also seems he is currently the club's preferred penalty taker as he has stepped up to convert his team's last two penalties. If you're looking for other options from Freiburg, it's worth considering Christian Günter (defender, 11.6M) and Lukas Kübler (defender, 6M) as the two full-backs are both very involved offensively. A fourth option is captain Mike Frantz (midfielder, 8.1M) who scored and had a great game against RB Leipzig.
Daniel Ginczek (Wolfsburg), striker - 11.1M
We also recommended bringing in Ginczek last week, and he repaid the faith with a goal in the 2-2 draw with Hoffenheim, meaning he has now scored twice and made two assists in his last three league games. With games against Nürnberg, Stuttgart and Augsburg coming up before Christmas, the in-form striker certainly still looks like a great option. And so does Yannick Gerhardt (defender, 8.5M). Although the 24-year-old is listed as a defender in-game, he actually plays in the central midfield, and he has made three assists in 12 Bundesliga games this season until now. William (defender, 9.9M), who is expected to return from suspension, is also worth considering.
Jordan Torunarigha (Hertha BSC), defender - 7.1M
The centre-back, who stole the show a few weeks ago as he scored and made an assist in the 2-0 win over Hannover 96, looks like a solid investment at the moment. Last week, he played the full match as Hertha defeated Frankfurt 1-0 and kept another clean sheet. This time around, Torunarigha and Hertha will face a struggling Stuttgart side who have scored just nine goals this season before the capital side will be up against Augsburg, who have lost four league games in a row, in midweek. Another option to consider from Hertha is Matthew Leckie (midfielder, 10.9M) who has put in some solid performances on the wing in recent weeks.
