Rashica has been in outstanding form lately, scoring three goals in his last two appearances. The 22-year-old is priced at just 7.5 million and is listed as a midfielder despite playing in a very advanced position. In addition to that, Werder Bremen have generally played very well recently and have a quite good run of fixtures coming up, facing Mainz (H), Gladbach (A) and SC Freiburg (H) in their next three games. If you're willing to spend a little more on a Werder player, Max Kruse (striker, 18.2M) is a great option as well.
Danny da Costa (defender), Eintracht Frankfurt - 10.3M
We have recommended da Costa in the past, and he remains a great fantasy option. The 25-year-old, who's listed as a defender, plays in an advanced wing-back role and gets forward a lot on the right-hand side. In general, Frankfurt are a very attractive side from a fantasy point of view at the moment as 'Die Adler' have won their last four Bundesliga games and have a string of tasty fixtures coming up - Stuttgart (H), Schalke (A), Augsburg (H), Wolfsburg (A), Hertha (H). Other good options from Frankfurt are Luka Jovic, who's priced at just 11.7M, and Filip Kostic (midfielder, 12.5M) who has been in outstanding form lately.
Breel Embolo (striker), Schalke 04 - 9M
Bringing in a Schalke 04 player at the moment is indisputably a huge gamble due to their recent slump. However, it may be worth taking a punt on 'The Royal Blues' this time around. Schalke have improved after Huub Stevens has taken over the head coach position from Domenico Tedesco, and they face Hannover 96 who are arguably in an even worse state than Schalke at the moment. Hannover have won just one of their last 15 games in all tournaments and were thrashed 0-5 by 2. Bundesliga side Arminia Bielefeld during the international break. Meanwhile, Hannover boss Martin Kind criticizes his staff and the team again and again. With that in mind, Schalke's Breel Embolo is an option to consider. The striker netted twice in his team's 2-4 defeat to Werder on March 8 and also scored on international duty for Switzerland in their 3-3 draw with Denmark this week. Bastian Oczipka (defender, 12.1M), who's known for his crossing ability and set pieces, is another possible option from Schalke.
