4 Fantasy Bundesliga investments you could make for matchday six

We have found four players that you should consider bringing into your Fantasy Bundesliga team for matchday six.
Kai Havertz.
Kai Havertz.
Ermin Bicakcic (Hoffenheim), defender - 6.7M
Despite costing just 6.7M, the centre-back, who played a very good game against Hannover 96, is nailed on to start for Hoffenheim who will play three out of the coming four games at home. Bicakcic has the potential to win plenty of duels, and at the same time, he can be a threat from set-pieces as he showed in the 1-1 draw against Dortmund in which he scored after a corner. However, unfortunately for Bicakcic and Hoffenheim, the goal was ruled out, because Leonardo Bittencourt received the ball in an offside position following a short corner. Other good options from Hoffenheim are Pavel Kaderabek (defender, 11M) and Joelinton (striker, 3M).

Michael Gregoritsch (FC Augsburg), midfielder - 13.8M
Gregoritsch has just scored once so far, but with a little luck, he could easily have had more goals at this point. The tall striker, who is listed as a midfielder in-game, is a huge threat in the box and takes a lot of shots on goal. In the game against Werder Bremen alone, he made six goal attempts while he had a total of nine (!) goal attempts in the match against Gladbach in which he also scored. With a tasty fixture at home against Freiburg coming up, he is surely a player to consider.

Kai Havertz (Bayer Leverkusen), midfielder - 13.4M
Another midfielder in the same price range as Gregoritsch that is worth considering is Kai Havertz. The youngster has been extremely decisive for Bayer 04 lately, registering three goals and one assist in their last three games in all competitions. It seems beyond doubt that the 19-year-old has a big season ahead of him, and he could be a good long-term signing for your team.

Nabil Bentaleb (Schalke 04), midfielder - 10.7M
Admitted - taking a punt on a Schalke player is a gamble after the Gelsenkirchen side's dreadful start to the season. However, it's hard to imagine a better opportunity to get back on track than the home game against Mainz on Saturday. Schalke lost their fifth game of the season against Freiburg in midweek, but were very unlucky not to score before conceding in the second half, an with the obvious quality in the team, it can't go on like this. Nabil Bentaleb has netted twice in all competitions this season, and as Schalke's preferred penalty taker, he could be worth looking at with some fine fixtures coming up.
