Hoffenheim are among this matchday's biggest favourites as they face a depleted FC Nürnberg side at home. Julian Nagelsmann's side have scored the third most goals in the Bundeslida this season, and they're likely to add to their goal haul on Sunday. Having scored twice and made one assist in his last three appearances, Joelinton is an obvious choice at the price of just 6.5 million. The in-form Ishak Belfodil (striker, 10.3M), full-back Pavel Kaderabek (defender, 11.2M), who comes forward a lot, are also good options.
Charles Aranguiz (midfielder), Bayer Leverkusen - 11.1M
Many may think of Charles Aranguiz as a defensive midfielder, but the Chilean international is much more than that. The 29-year-old has really flourished under new coach Peter Bosz so far and often finds himself in offensive positions - particularly when Julian Baumgartlinger has played behind him. Aranguiz is much cheaper than many of Leverkusen's other options and could be a nice differential. If you're willing to spend a little more on a Leverkusen player, you should look at Kai Havertz (midfielder, 17.1M), Julian Brandt (striker, 16.5M) and Kevin Volland (striker, 17M). Leverkusen are one of the league's most in-form teams at the moment, and they're playing against a Hannover 96 side that lost 1-5 to Stuttgart last weekend - a result that made club boss Martin Kind say that he feels certain his team will go down. The chances are that Leverkusen will make Hannover suffer another huge defeat, so getting some offensive players from 'Die Werkself' into your team is strongly recommended.
Timo Werner (striker), RB Leipzig - 16.5M
After missing two games in a row, Werner is ready to return when RB Leipzig take on Augsburg at home this weekend. Augsburg did beat Borussia Dortmund last weekend, but Manuel Baum's team are unlikely to get another good result this time around. Augsburg have lost their last two away games against Werder Bremen and Freiburg by 1-9 in total and have a number of absentees, including Alfred Finnbogason, Kostas Stafylidis, Reece Oxford and André Hahn. Werner has scored several braces this season, and there could be another one coming if the striker can remain focused on the game amid his much debated contract situation and the reported interest from Bayern München. Another great option from RB Leipzig is Marcel Halstenberg (defender, 12.7M) whom we also recommended bringing in last week.
