VfB Stuttgart v. FC Augsburg:


M: Saša Kalajdžić, Forward (VFB, 7.8M, 8%) - Both Stuttgart and Augsburg are winless in their last four so something's got to give in this matchup. Kalajdžić will be looking to end his three game goal drought after previously scoring nine in 10 games.

D: Reece Oxford, Midfielder (FCA, 2.7M, 0%) - Oxford started the last two games before the break and had a decent showing in both. Most promising was his eye for goal, as he took a total of three shots in those games. He had only taken one shot previously in his last 19 games.

Borussia Dortmund v. RB Leipzig:

M: Jadon Sancho, Forward (BVB, 21.3M, 31%) - Sancho could be 100% match fit for the first time since February. With Haaland and Reyna still nursing some knocks, Dortmund’s chances will mostly fall on Sancho’s shoulders. They have to win if they have any dreams of the Champions League.

D: Alexander Sørloth, Forward (RBL, 15.2M, 0%) - The only <1% starter in the match, Sørloth owners will hope for a repeat of his two-goal performance almost a month ago. In his three games played since that match, he has zero goals on six shots.



TSG Hoffenheim v. FC Schalke 04:

M: Andrej Kramarić, Forward (TSG, 18.5M, 6%) - Three goals in his last two games and Kramarić is starting to find his form again. Double digit Fantasy points in both of those games as well, Kramarić could have a field day against relegated Schalke.

D: Ihlas Bebou, Forward (TSG, 10.5M, 1%) - The chances of Hoffenheim scoring some goals are extremely high so if you do not have the funds for Kramarić, his strike partner will certainly do.

VfL Wolfsburg v. 1. FC Union Berlin:

M: Wout Weghorst, Forward (WOB, 21.5M, 9%) - Although Weghorst did not score last gameday, he still has been one of the best in the league with six goals and four assists in his last seven games. Only seven points separate Wolfsburg’s claims of European football next year so they can not let off the gas.

D: Paulo Otávio, Defender (VFL, 9.3M, 1%) - Even during a loss to Dortmund, Otávio was still able to manage double digit Fantasy points with an outstanding 10 points alone in Won Duels. Having only played two out of the last seven games after starting the previous 12 straight, Otávio will be looking to lock down his starting position again.

SV Werder Bremen v. Bayer 04 Leverkusen:

M: Leon Bailey, Forward (B04, 15.4M, 3%) - Bailey has been fantastic in two out of his last three games, scoring double digit Fantasy points in all but the Bayern game. He will have a great opportunity to make it three of four as Bremen have not won a game in their last seven league outings.

D: Kerem Demirbay, Midfielder (B04, 13.6M, 1%) - Demirbay has done well in recent weeks, scoring once and assisting twice in his last five games. He has also taken over Amiri with the most set piece attempts on the team and he should continue that streak going forward.


FC Bayern München v. Borussia M’gladbach:

M: Robert Lewandowski, Forward (FCB, 25.8M, 59%) - Not surprising at all that Lewandowski scored in his first game back from injury. That puts him at seven league games in a row with a goal. He will be difficult to get back into your squad if you dropped him during his absence but he will be worth the trouble.

D: Alassane Pléa, Forward (BMG, 17.5M, 1%) - Pléa has done excellent lately, scoring three in his last four matches. He has also scored eight Fantasy points or higher in six out of his last seven games.

1. FC Köln v. Sport-Club Freiburg:

M: Ondrej Duda, Midfielder (KOE, 9.8M, 2%) - Köln are making a huge push for survival with two wins in their last two and playing the best right now of the bottom six squads. Duda has scored double digit Fantasy points in three out of his last four games and is leading the charge to safety.

D: Ermedin Demirović, Forward (SCF, 8M, 1%) - Demirović is always extremely active in all his matches and is unlucky to not have come away with more to speak of when all is said and done. His effort is there, shown by his 10 shots with five on goal in his last three games. It is just a matter of time before his luck starts turning around.

Eintracht Frankfurt v. 1. FSV Mainz 05:

M: André Silva, Forward (SGE, 21.4M, 14%) - With four goals and an assist in his last five games, there are not many better forwards you can find in the game at the moment. With Frankfurt hanging on to the last Champions League spot by a thread, they should be pushing the limits in these final few games.

D: Phillipp Mwene, Defender (M05, 2.9M, 1%) - Mwene has two assists and a goal in his last four games. Even more impressive is he seems to have taken over set pieces with six attempts to lead the team last match against Hertha.

Hertha BSC v. DSC Arminia Bielefeld:

M: Matheus Cunha, Forward (BSC, 16M, 3%) - Hertha have a great chance of surviving relegation with a better goal difference and a game in hand compared to the teams below them. Cunha will have to be a player that finishes the season strong if they want that to happen. After coming on as a sub in their midweek makeup fixture, he should be good to start over the weekend.

D: Jhon Córdoba, Forward (BSC, 12M, 0%) - Along the same lines as Cunha, Córdoba is rested and needed for their safety push. Córdoba is just the cheaper and slightly less owned version of Cunha.
