Fantasy Bundesliga tips:
10 players to consider for Matchday 8

By Rune Gjerulff   @runegjerulff

Here are 10 players you should consider bringing into your Fantasy Bundesliga team for Matchday 8.

In this Fantasy Bundesliga article, we will not be focusing on the most obvious picks such as Jeremie Frimpong and Harry Kane.


Instead, we will highlight players with a maximum ownership percentage of 20%, who could offer great value as differentials for Matchday 8.

Kiliann Sildillia, Freiburg (Defender, 4.6M, 3%)
On sale and with Freiburg facing Bochum at home, Sildillia is one of the best enablers at the back this week.

Rasmus Carstensen, FC Köln (Defender, 4.7M, 0%)
FC Köln will go into this weekend's derby against Gladbach looking for their first win as they sit at the bottom of the table. In light of this, investing in a Köln defender may seem like a mad idea, but Carstensen is tipped to play out of position as a winger against a Gladbach defense that has looked far from impressive this season.

Ramy Bensebaini, Borussia Dortmund (Defender, 13.5M, 3%)
During his spell at Gladbach, Bensebaini was one of the best defenders in the game, but he hasn't come close to making the same impact at Borussia Dortmund. Therefore, based on the season so far, there are other defenders in the same category that look more appealing, but if you want to go a different route and try to differentiate yourself from your competitors, getting Bensebaini could pay off given Dortmund's favorable home fixture against an injury-hit, struggling Werder Bremen side.


Franck Honorat, Gladbach (Midfielder, 11.9M, 2%)
After two consecutive double-digit hauls, the Frenchman will now be unleashed against last-placed FC Köln.

Marco Reus, Dortmund (Midfielder, 13.7M, 5%)
Owned by just 5%, the veteran is a good, cheaper alternative to Julian Brandt in Dortmund's midfield.

Jamal Musiala, FC Bayern (Midfielder, 15M, 18%)
Back to full fitness after his injury, Musiala is expected to start more consistently in attacking midfield for the German champions, who face struggling Mainz this weekend.

Vincenzo Grifo, Freiburg (Midfielder, 15.9M, 7%)
Freiburg's attacking talisman has a mouthwatering fixture this week at home to Bochum, who haven't won an away game since March.

Eren Dinkçi, Heidenheim (Striker, 4.8M, 2%)
If you want a budget striker, Dinkci is arguably the best option with five goals in eight games for Heidenheim this season and a home game against Augsburg.

Maximilian Beier, Hoffenheim (Striker, 6.5M, 1%)
Led by the impressive form of Maximilian Beier in front of goal, Hoffenheim sit in fourth place heading into this weekend's home match against an Eintracht Frankfurt side who have been solid in defense, but poor on the road.

Loïs Openda, RB Leipzig (Striker, 14.8M, 10%)
Openda owners were left disappointed by his and Leipzig's performance against Bochum before the international break, but he remains an attractive option against a Darmstadt side, who have conceded the joint most goals this season.
