Fantasy Bundesliga tips:
10 players to consider for Matchday 9

By Rune Gjerulff   @runegjerulff

Here are 10 players you should consider bringing into your Fantasy Bundesliga team for Matchday 9.
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 9.

Anthony Caci, Mainz (Defender, 6.5M, 0%)
Mainz really struggled this season, but they've improved lately and now face Bochum in a must-win game. Caci plays in an attacking wingback role and has already scored two goals this season

Noussair Mazraoui, Bayern (Defender, 11.8M, 1%)
With Bayern at home to Darmstadt, Mazraoui could be one of the top defenders this week - if he starts. Konrad Laimer may be called upon in midfield, which increases Mazraoui's chances of starting. However, it's also possible that Tuchel will rest the Moroccan international, as he only returned from injury to play against Galatasaray on Tuesday.

Brajan Gruda, Mainz (Midfielder, 1.7M, 4%)
Gruda is one of the most exciting prospects in German football right now and played well against Bayern last week. His price and matchup make him very intriguing.

Fredrik Jensen, Augsburg (Midfielder, 4.1M, 0%)
After seeing little playing time under Enrico Maaẞen, Jensen provided three assists in Jess Thorup's first game in charge and was subsequently praised by the new Augsbrug coach. Given the Fuggerstädter's manageable schedule, he could be a good enabler in the coming weeks.


Kevin Stöger, Bochum (Midfielder, 9.4M, 9%)
Having scored 73 points this season, Stöger is Bochum's key player in the middle of the park, on all set pieces and usually does well, even when they lose. They have a really good run of games now, facing Mainz, Darmstadt, Köln and Heidenheim in their next four.

Franck Honorat, Gladbach (Midfielder, 12.1M, 2%)
Honorat has averaged 11 points per game in his last three matches and faces a very leaky Heidenheim team at home. Great differential this week.

Jamal Musiala, Bayern (Midfielder, 15.3M, 18%)
Musiala has yet to find the back of the net in five Bundesliga appearances this season, but he showed he still knows where the net is in midweek with a fine strike in Bayern's win over Galatasaray. With the German champions at home to Darmstadt, his potential is high this week.

Deniz Undav, Stuttgart (Striker, 8.7M, 0%)
Although he has only been a substitute so far, Undav has scored three goals in five games. He's now in line for his first start in Guirassy's absence.

Jonas Wind, Wolfsburg (Striker, 11.9M, 5%)
Wind has been one of the most clinical strikers in the Bundesliga so far this season and will be unleashed against a vulnerable Augsburg defense.

Lois Openda, RB Leipzig (Striker, 15.2M, 9%)
RB Leipzig are one of the biggest favorites in the Bundesliga this weekend, taking on FC Köln at home. This automatically makes Openda, who scored a brace on Matchday 8, an interesting option, although his minutes may be limited due to Leipzig's tight schedule.
