Fantasy Bundesliga:
10 players to consider for Matchday 12

By Rune Gjerulff   @runegjerulff

Here are 10 players you should consider bringing into your Fantasy Bundesliga team for Matchday 12.
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 12.

Kiliann Sildillia, Freiburg (Defender, 4.8M, 2%)
Available for a measly 4.8 million, Sildillia is expected to start as a wing-back at home to struggling Darmstadt.

Robin Gosens, Union Berlin (Defender, 11.3M, 5%)
It's been a season to forget for Union Berlin, who are hoping for an improvement under interim coach Marco Grote after parting ways with Urs Fischer before the international break. A home game against Augsburg should give them a good chance to bounce back, although Jess Thorup's side went into the international break on a four-match unbeaten run. If things go Union's way, Robin Gosens could prove to be a great differential this matchday, having already scored big on a couple of occasions this season (24 points on MD2, 13 points on MD7).

Noussair Mazraoui, Bayern (Defender, 12.5M, 11%)
It can be a bit difficult to predict whether Mazraoui or Laimer will start at right-back for Bayern, but this time there is no need for predictions as the Bavarians' starting lineup will be announced before the deadline. If he does start, the 26-year-old is a good, cheaper alternative to Alphonso Davies, whose minutes are likely to be managed after he returned late from international duty with Canada. In fact, he outscored Davies by a wide margin in the last few games before the break.

Brajan Gruda, Mainz (Midfielder, 1.5M, 9%)
Having started both of Germany's U21 victories during the international break, Gruda should have plenty of confidence heading into this weekend's Bundesliga action. With Karim Onisiwo out for a while, the highly-rated youngster looks set to start as an attacking midfielder in the coming weeks for a Mainz side that showed improvement before the international break. At just 1.5 million, he represents excellent value for money.


Leon Goretzka, Bayern (Midfielder 13.1M, 10%)
After missing matchday 11 with a muscle problem, Goretzka should be back in the Bayern starting lineup as a box-to-box midfielder when they take on 17th-placed Köln on Friday night. If you want a Bayern midfielder in your team for this matchday, he should be your player of choice.

Christoph Baumgartner, RB Leipzig (Midfielder, 13.9M, 0%)
Baumgartner is starting to find his feet in Leipzig and finished strong before the international break, winning a penalty and scoring a goal off the bench in a 3-1 win over Freiburg. He also scored and assisted in Austria's 2-0 win over Germany earlier this week. Given his recent strong performances and growing speculation that Emil Forsberg is heading for the exit door in January, Baumgartner should start against a Wolfsburg side who were thrashed 4-0 by Gladbach in their last game before the break.

Vincenzo Grifo, Freiburg (Midfielder, 16.6M, 8%)
With Freiburg at home against Darmstadt, their attacking talisman Vincenzo Grifo will be hard to ignore this week. The Freiburg star's ownership is currently at just 8%, but should rise significantly this week.

Eren Dinkci, Heidenheim (5M, 2%)
One of the better budget options up front, Dinkci has already found the net five times in 11 Bundesliga appearances this season, and Heidenheim's home game against Bochum should give him a good chance to add to that tally.

Thomas Müller, Bayern (13.2M, 1%)
Didn't deliver against Heidenheim before the international break, but it might be worth giving Die Raumdeuter another chance as he looks set to deputise for Jamal Musiala again, this time against FC Köln.

Serhou Guirassy, Stuttgart (14.3M, 13%)
Guirassy is back to full fitness after his injury, and his performances and scoring record this season automatically make him a player to consider, even if Stuttgart's away game against Eintracht Frankfurt this week isn't the easiest one by any means.
