Fantasy Bundesliga: Must-haves and differentials for Matchday 29

Ahead of Matchday 29, we have highlighted a must-have player (M) and a differential pick (D) from each game that you should consider for your Fantasy Bundesliga team.
RB Leipzig v. TSG Hoffenheim:

M: Christopher Nkunku, Midfielder (RBL, 17.6M, 10%) - Nkunku was back on the stat sheet after grabbing an assist on the second goal in Leipzig’s drubbing of Bremen last weekend. In his last five starts, Nkunku has scored double digit Fantasy points in four of them, the only drop being the match against Bayern.

D: Alexander Sørloth, Forward (RBL, 15M, 0%) - A brace against Bremen may be the final confidence boost that Sørloth needs to finish the season on a positive note. Poulsen is still questionable and Sørloth proved he's worthy of a consecutive start.

Borussia M’gladbach v. Eintracht Frankfurt:

M: Daichi Kamada, Midfielder (SGE, 14.9M, 7%) - Since missing the Stuttgart game on Matchday 24, Kamada has been sensational in the last four games he has been back. With two goals and two assists in that time frame to coincide with Frankfurt’s unbeaten run, it is no wonder Frankfurt are playing arguably the best football in the league at the moment.

D: Breel Embolo, Forward (BMG, 12.3M, 1%) - With Lars Stindl expected to miss time due to injury, the door has been opened for Embolo to get in the starting lineup. Although he has not scored in a while, he is always causing havoc when given a start once he can wear the opposing defenders down with his physical presence.

VfL Wolfsburg v. FC Bayern München:

M: Wout Weghort, Forward (WOB, 21.1M, 11%) - An obvious choice with the uncertainties that Bayern are going through with their personnel at the moment. Bayern still have issues in defense and Weghorst is unstoppable right now.

D: Xaver Schlager, Midfielder (WOB, 12.4M, 1%) - Over his last five games, Schlager has averaged a solid nine Fantasy points per game. He has two assists during that span and has been unlucky to not grab a goal either, averaging two shots per game.

FC Augsburg v. DSC Arminia Bielefeld:

M: Ritsu Dōan, Midfielder (DSC, 10.2M, 4%) - Dōan played well in Bielefeld’s impressive win over Freiburg last weekend, almost hitting double digit Fantasy points without scoring. For extra incentive, a positive result against Augsburg could pull Bielefeld out of the relegation zone.

D: Marco Richter, Midfielder (FCA, 10M, 1%) - From February 6th to March 6th, Richter had only totaled 63 minutes played in five matches. Since March 12th, Richter has played 336 minutes in the last four games with a goal and an assist. Last week against Schalke, Richter had an impressive five shots and four crosses attempted.

Sport-Club Freiburg v. FC Schalke 04:

M: Florian Müller, Goalkeeper (SCF, 5M, 10%) - The #2 Fantasy goalkeeper in the league, for price and points, Müller is a must on any team. He has a great opportunity for a clean sheet bonus against Schalke.

D: Lucas Höler, Forward (SCF, 9.7M, 1%) - Höler has served his one-match ban and will be available to suit up this weekend. Höler had started the six previous matches before the ban and tallied one goal and one assist during that time.

1. FC Union Berlin v. VfB Stuttgart:

M: Borna Sosa, Defender (VFB, 6.3M, 11) - After a bit of a dry spell, Sosa got his name back on the stat sheet with an assist in their close loss to Dortmund. An otherwise spectacular season, Sosa will continue to rack up the Fantasy points no matter the outcome of the game.

D: Robert Andrich, Midfielder (FCU, 10.2M, 1%) - In the last two games, Andrich has done extremely well, racking up a goal and an assist in their draws with Bayern and Hertha. Andrich always gets himself in dangerous positions on the attack.

Bayer 04 Leverkusen v. 1. FC Köln:

M: Sven Bender, Defender (B04, 8.6M, 3%) - After missing a considerable amount of time due to injury, Bender has started and played the full 90 in Leverkusen’s last two matches. His return marked some stability to the Bayer defense as they grabbed their first clean sheet in over a month last weekend against Hoffenheim.

D: Patrik Schick, Forward (B04, 15.7M, 0%) - Köln’s defense on the other hand has been dreadful, not having kept a clean sheet since mid January. Schick will have every opportunity to take control of this game. He has been playing better as the season progresses, scoring three times in the last five games.

Borussia Dortmund v. SV Werder Bremen:

M: Jude Bellingham, Midfielder (BVB, 11.7M, 6%) - Bellingham has finally made his mark on the Bundesliga, scoring his first goal last weekend against Stuttgart. He promptly followed that up in the Champions League with another goal four days later. In the Stuttgart match, Bellingham was fantastic with five shots taken and seems to have hit another stride in the late stages of the season.

D: Ansgar Knauff, Forward (BVB, 1M, 0%) - Knauff has a unique distinction of starting two Champions League matches before his first ever Bundesliga start. He has had success in his three league sub appearances, however, notching a goal and an assist in only 60 minutes played.

1. FSV Mainz 05 v. Hertha BSC:

M: Matheus Cunha, Forward (BSC, 16M, 3%) - Cunha was a menace against Gladbach last weekend, sending in a season high nine crosses on seven corners to go with six shots during the match. He did grab an assist as well which gives him a goal and an assist in his last three games.

D: Karim Onisiwo, Forward (M05, 9.5M, 0%) - Onisiwo has two goals in his last three starts, including one last weekend against Köln. After a bit of a thigh injury holding him back, at full strength he could finish the season with a bang and help Mainz avoid relegation.
