Wolfsburg defense impenetrable


Wolfsburg have kept a clean sheet for the 4th time in a row, and this has reflected in a steady generation of points from their backline with players such as Paulo Otavio (8.9M, 13) and Maxence Lacroix (5.6M, 10) in recent weeks. Kevin Mbabu (10.9M, 12) and John Anthony Brooks (8.4M, 8) are also alternatives if managers prefer more of a differential. Wolfsburg face a visiting M’Gladbach team next matchday who had a shock 1:2 defeat to Koln in the Rhine derby last weekend, and it remains to be seen if Wolfsburg's defensive mean streak will continue.



Players with more passes to shots getting the biggest hauls

Matchday 19 had the players who set up the most shots receive huge hauls in points. Angelino (17.1M, 26) and Filip Kostic (17.6M, 24) are great examples of premium players proving their price with 2 assists and at least 4 points from passes to shots, boosting both players to a matchday score of more than 20 points. Elsewhere, Christopher Nkunku (15.6M, 21) also came out with a whooping 21 points including 1 assist and 6 points from passes to shot. One similarity between these players are that they normally play a huge part in taking set pieces, be it corners or free kicks and if this trend continues, bringing in such players as the foundation of teams would likely bode well for future matchdays.

Shocks of the matchday


Kerem Demirbay, MID (13.1M, 28) had his best showing in fantasy with 2 goals and 9 points from goal attempts, making him the highest scoring player for the matchday, and could be one to watch.

Elvis Rexhbecaj, MID (5.8M, 19) was the hero for Koln with 2 goals, as Koln continued their 3 game winning form, but will face a tough opponent in Eintracht Frankfurt next.
