Charles Aranguiz (Bayer Leverkusen), midfielder - 11.6M
You may not think of the hard-working central midfielder as the most obvious Fantasy option, but his offensive qualities really shouldn't be underestimated. During his whole career, Aranguiz has actually been responsible for a fair amount of goals and assists. With Julian Baumgartlinger covering for him in Peter Bosz's system, Aranguiz is playing in a quite offensive box-to-box role, and the fact that he has scored once and made three assists in his last two games certainly isn't just down to luck. Leverkusen are generally in good form, having beaten their last four Bundesliga opponents, and they should have a good chance of winning their last two games against Schalke 04 and Hertha BSC as well. If you're willing to spend a little more on a Leverkusen player, Lucas Alario (striker, 12.5M) and Kai Havertz (midfielder, 19.1M) are good options as well. So is Julian Brandt (striker, 18.1M), although it's a shame that he's listed as a striker in-game.
Vincenzo Grifo (Freiburg), midfielder - 13.1M
We recommended bringing in Vincenzo Grifo last week, and we'll happily do so again. The Hoffenheim loanee is in great form and has scored two goals and produced a total of 30 points in his last two games. Additionally, Freiburg's remaining fixtures against relegation-struggling Hannover 96 and FC Nürnberg look very favourable - so what's not to like?
Kerem Demirbay (Hoffenheim), midfielder - 15.2M
Hoffenheim were clearly the better team against Gladbach on Matchday 32, but ultimately had to settle for a 2-2 draw. As so many times before, Kerem Demirbay bossed the midfield and pulled the strings. The central midfielder has made an assist in each of his last four Bundesliga games, and with Hoffenheim facing Werder Bremen (H) and Mainz (A) in their last two games of the season, he certainly looks like one of the more interesting options. This time around, Hoffenheim are considered fairly big favourites to beat Werder who haven't looked liked themselves since they lost 2-3 to Bayern München in the DFB-Pokal semi-final on April 24. The offensively-oriented full-back Pavel Kaderabek (defender, 11.3M) is another interesting option from Hoffenheim.
