Fantasy Bundesliga

The key Fantasy Bundesliga lessons from 2021/22 so far

With the ongoing international break and a Wildcard period in force, this felt like the perfect opportunity to write another Fantasy Bundesliga data piece and look at what we’ve seen so far in the opening weeks of the season.

Current League Table Standings

Starting with the current league table above (click to expand), perhaps to the surprise of many, it is Wolfsburg that find themselves to be the early pacesetters as the only team to win all three of their opening games. Second-place Leverkusen are also showing their bite, scoring four goals in each of their last two games.

Meanwhile, following a worrying pre-season and a poor opening-day result against Gladbach, Bayern Munich have been back to their imperious best, winning four games on the trot in league and cup competitions and scoring 23 goals in the process.

At the other end of the table, things once again look worrying for last season’s strugglers Hertha Berlin, who find themselves propping up the table as the only club on zero points. They are joined in the bottom three by Augsburg and newly promoted Greuther Furth; all three sides have conceded 3+ goals in at least two of their three games so far.

Clinical Attackers

Let’s first start with the fun part and evaluate the attacking play of all the Bundesliga teams thus far (click the below image to expand).

Interestingly, only Bayern from the top three feature amongst the leading teams for points from goal attempts, while all three of the league’s bottom sides feature among the bottom five. This seems to indicate that though taking a lot of shots doesn’t guarantee a place at the top of the table, the failure to register a significant number of attempts at goal is a fairly good indicator of which teams are likely to struggle in the division.

The above graphs (click to expand) focus on the efficiency and effectiveness of the goalscoring prowess of all the Bundesliga teams. A high shot rank implies a low number of shots and a high-efficiency rank implies a low conversion rate. The ideal team would have both a low shot and efficiency rank, meaning they take a lot of shots and convert them into goals very well.

Some key takeaways from the graphs:

  • Union, Bochum and Augsburg attackers have had a very high conversion rate so far.
  • Bayern attackers understandably place well thanks to the prolific beast that is Robert Lewandowski and the fantasy positioning of other players such as Thomas Muller and Serge Gnabry.
  • Furth, Wolfsburg and Eintracht attackers are leaving much to be desired in chance conversion (Rafael Borre, sort your act out).
  • Monchengladbach attackers are poor at taking shots and as bad at converting them, the worst kind of combination.
  • Augsburg, Union, Hertha and Furth midfielders are poor at bringing in the goals.
  • Dortmund and Freiburg midfielders look good for goals.
  • Stuttgart, Union, Mainz and Leipzig defenders are very important to their team’s scoring potential. The first three of these teams play with a wing-back system and are renowned for their set-piece threat.
  • A number of teams (those ranked worst for shot rank) have had defenders register no points for goal attempts, meaning they only take one-off shots or none at all.

Having looked at teams, I wanted to also highlight the top players who are most likely to score a goal, as well as those that have proved most wasteful thus far.

PositionPlayerTeamxGGoals
1LewandowskiBayern4.85
2SchickLeverkusen3.12
3HalandDortmund33
4BorreEintracht2.30
5StindlMonchengladbach2.20

PositionPlayerTeamxG Underperformance
1BorreEintracht-2.3
2StindlMonchengladbach-2.2
3OrbanLeipzig-1.7
4KramaricHoffenheim-1.6
5SchickLeverkusen-1.1

Arguably the Bundesliga’s best player over the past couple of seasons, Lewandowski, has the stats to back his early-season scoring form. So far it looks likely he may yet replicate his heroics of a record-breaking 20/21 season.

Borre and Stindl are two players that interestingly feature in both tables. Both have high potential and have hopefully invested in some new shooting boots over the international break. Stindl is a personal favourite of mine thanks to his performances in previous seasons but Borre certainly has some work to do while he tries to fill the hole left at Eintracht by the departure of Andre Silva.

Kramaric already ranks among some of the top early performers thanks to his creative side but his xG underperformance suggests more is yet to come from the Hoffenheim talisman.

Orban is the only defender to feature among the top 20 players for xG and has converted none of his chances, yet still ranks sixth amongst defenders for Fantasy Bundesliga points.

The Form Men

Here are the top points performers by position after the first three weeks (click to expand):

It’s worth noting that 21 of the players in the graphs above cost more than 10m and the big guns seem to dominate the standings as you move up the positions. Only two goalkeepers and five defenders priced above 10m make their respective lists but seven midfielders and as many attackers achieve the same feat. This reiterates the point made in my pre-season article regarding the value of investing further up the pitch.

Dominant Defences

Digging through the data, I’ve noticed something interesting in player performance, particularly among defenders. A clean sheet carries a relatively small reward of just three points but every goal conceded results in a loss of one point, so perhaps as important as shut-outs is seeing which teams consistently put up good stats. For example, a team keeping a clean sheet one week but conceding five goals the next is equivalent to conceding once each week.

I’d also argue that teams conceding small amounts each week are more constant and usually more likely to keep clean sheets as a whole. Let me show you the impact this has:

Player NameKPI TotalDuels WonShot AssistsGoal AttemptsGCDef ranking
Marc-Oliver Kempf291431281st
Willi Orban241201626th
Joe Scally231238725th
Mohamed Simakan22180428th
Kevin Mbabu22166012nd
Alphonso Davies20146033rd
Nico Schlotterbeck181404313th
Born Sosa17890810th
Evan Ndicka161600631st
Marco Meyerhofer161060952nd

The table you see above contains the top 10 defenders by KPI. A steady stream of good KPI performance is arguably the most sustainable factor pointing towards which players are likely to be amongst the top scorers come the end of the season.

However, note also the number of goals their team has conceded and the overall placing of the player in the defender rankings. With the exception of the two Stuttgart defenders, who make up for the goals conceded with exceptional attacking output, defenders from teams that concede are likely to struggle due to points lost from goals conceded and being on the losing team more frequently. In fact, among the top 10 defenders overall at the moment, only three (Kempf, Giesselmann and Sosa) are the only ones to play for teams that have conceded more than three goals so far. These are also the three defenders with the highest goals and assists totals thus far, making up for their team’s defensive frailties.

I’d like to finish off with some defensive xG data to highlight which teams’ defenders are likely to provide a sustainable route to points and which ones are likely to struggle.

TeamxGCGoals ConcededDifference
Furth89-1
Monchengladbach7.170.1
Bochum734
Augsburg6.48-1.6
Stuttgart6.28-1.8
Hoffenheim651
Hertha5.8104.2
Dortmund5.56-0.5
Bielefeld5.523.5
Koln5.250.2
Freiburg4.431.4
Leverkusen4.222.2
Union Berlin4.140.1
Eintracht3.96-2.1
Bayern3.630.6
Leipzig3.521.5
Wolfsburg2.911.9
Mainz2.220.2

It may surprise you to find Mainz performing so well, although they might have been somewhat aided by a kind opening fixture run (facing the two promoted sides). The point I’d like to argue is that with the exception of situations where a player is providing exceptional attacking output (like Sosa or Kempf), it is best to target defenders from the sides lower in this table, particularly ahead of kind fixture runs. They are more likely to provide consistent returns and even if they don’t deliver a tonne of attacking output, they can often make up for it with their team’s defensive solidity.

I hope you found this article and the data provided both useful and insightful. As always, reach out to me on Twitter should you have any questions or if you just wish to discuss Fantasy Bundesliga; my DMs are always open.

Good luck with the Wildcards and I’ll be back in a few weeks with the next update!

      Already did -8 to bring cr7 and ditch Barnes. I am in mess

        Is DCL out?

    2. @theFPLScorpio

      How many changes would you make to your team overall?

  2. 15men1cup

    1 month, 8 days ago

    Hi Guys, a critique of my WC team would be much appreciated:

    Bachmann (Foster)
    Dias, Shaw, Rüdiger (Semedo, White)
    Salah, Jota, Sarr, Benrahma (Sissoko)
    Ronaldo, Antonio, DCL

    I know I have decided to go without Trent. But my defense is strong and the extra funds give me a reasonable beach that I can rotate.

    Thoughts?

    Good luck for tomorrow gents

    1. 15men1cup

      Benny to Raffa on for GW 5

        Sorry I just saw you already have the money, then I would just bank the 0.4 from the move I suggest below

      Lovely team. Good to go

        Cheers mate!

          1 month, 8 days ago

          I like the DCL pick.

          Feel like I could potentially get him for my team. But dropping either Greenwood or Jota is proving difficult

          1. 15men1cup
            • 3 Years
            1 month, 8 days ago

            I had the same dilemma. as I had Shaw and Ronny, I dropped Greenwood. It was painful to do, but weighing it up. DCL is on penalties, its nailed and has a good fixture run. Greenwood could be rotated, is not on penalties and a lot of action is not going thought Ronaldo that is now playing upfront.

            Thanks for your input!

              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 9 Years
              1 month, 8 days ago

              It makes logical sense to drop him for DCL. But everything in my body is saying no! 9 goals in his last 11 games.

              Tough decision to make 🙁

              1. 15men1cup
                • 3 Years

      1 month, 8 days ago

      Good team, to be honest I would swap white or to a 4.0, how often are you really going to play him with that lot?

      This will give you 0.4 to do rahma to Raph if the benrahma wagon stops as well

      1. 15men1cup
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 8 days ago

        That's a good point. I have the 0.1 to swap Benny to Raph.
        White to Williams defiantly something I will think about. I do not need the .4 now, but it could be hand down the raod.
        Cheers for your feedback

        1. Steve The Spud
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          1 month, 8 days ago

          Yeah I think so, I mean he has the best fixture in the league this week and he’s potentially last on your bench, tells you all you need to know about that pick

    4. Christina.
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      So you essentially going Jota over Taa.
      No from me.
      I prefer my team with Taa and most of your other players.

      1. 15men1cup
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 8 days ago

        I had Taa, Shaw, White, Liva, and Williams.25.5m
        Dias, Shaw, Rüdiger, Semedo, White = 26.3

        I downgraded Greenwood to Sarr and moved the rest to the forwards

        1. Christina.
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 11 Years
          1 month, 8 days ago

          Not sure what your TV is, but I have Dias, Rudi, Salah, Sarr, DCL, Cr7, Antonio AND Taa.

    5. Harry the Hack
      • 12 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Do Benny to Raph now, bench him, and field Semedo. The extra trade you will want for next week is worth more than the points Benny gets over Semedo this week

      1. 15men1cup
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 8 days ago

        Love it, thanks!

    1. @theFPLScorpio
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years

      I wouldn't double up on West Ham with their fixtures/EL coming up but looks good.

      1. Thomas Magnum
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 8 days ago

        True, maybe Fornals to the 'bandwagon' Traore at least until you see how west ham will lineup with Europe. Quite nice otherwise

        1. Make United Great Again
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          1 month, 8 days ago

          Thanks buddy. Maybe Fornals isn’t the best one week punt (buying Raphinha GW5)

          Could get any mid 6.6.

          Never been sold on Traore, such a terrible finisher. I’m even considering Saka..

          1. Thomas Magnum
            • 6 Years
            1 month, 8 days ago

            If there was a week to bring in Saka it would be this week with ESR supposedly out, so he wouldn't be the worst pick imo. Could even go with Bergwijn if you feel really punty for a week

      2. Make United Great Again
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 8 days ago

        Fornals is a 1 week punt. Will become Raphinha next week.

  8. mrtapio

    Who to captain?

    A Lukaku
    B Salah
    C DCL
    D Antonio

    Currently on Lukaku! Salah VC, DCL third choice.

    1. @theFPLScorpio

    Wait for news on Wilson and then do Wilson/Ings + Bruno >>> CR7 + Jota/Sarr for -4?

    Or just do Wilson/Ings to DCL/Jimenez?

    1. @theFPLScorpio
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      DCL is a doubt, Jimenez is banned. I can't see CR7 outscoring Bruno with a hit included either.

      If CR7 is benched he'll have to make up 5 points after coming on assuming Bruno is just on 2.

    2. El_Gigante
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Alright, so perhaps Wilson (if injured) > DCL this week and then Ings+Bruno > CR7+Jota/Sarr next GW if it looks like Bruno has lost his edge with CR7 in the team

    Despite no return to date, Adama's crazy numbers are hard to ignore.

    1. @theFPLScorpio
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Yeah it's annoying. I'm considering putting him in but plan to have safe options all around so I'm minimising my punts.

      1. swervinho
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        1 month, 8 days ago

        Agreed - I'm leaning towards him as a one-off punt.

        1. Thomas Magnum
          • 6 Years
          1 month, 8 days ago

          No Jimenez this week make him a better or worse prospect?

      The guy can’t finish at all. Even with the numbers I’m reluctant

    Thinking of swapping Bruno and Perica to Sissoko and Ronaldo for -4 and deal with Barnes next week, or would you take another hit to get Barnes out?

    1.4 ITB and 1 FT

    Sanchez
    TAA Shaw Webster
    Salah Bruno Barnes Raphinha Benrahma
    DCL Antonio

    Steele Ayling Tsimikas Perica

    1. swervinho

      Deal with Barnes now (Jota). Leave Bruno for this one.

      1. Gazza2000
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 8 days ago

        Can't get Jota without a hit though as I have Tsimikas, you think it's worth the -4?

        Other option I'm thinking about is saving this GW and get Bamford in next week for Perica by downgrading Bamford to a 4.5.

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 8 days ago

        Cheers, or should I make Barnes the priority over Ronaldo and deal with him first?

        1. The Knights Template
          • 7 Years
          1 month, 8 days ago

          Barnes later

    3. lockdownlad
        1 month, 8 days ago

        Yeah, I think the Bruno to Ronaldo move is fine, personally I'd bench Barnes for Sissoko this week if you do make the transfer.

          Thanks, was hoping ESR was declared fit, had the exact money to get him in.

      A- Coady-Torres
      B- Semedo-Benrahma

        1. pablo discobar
          • 11 Years

          Even with Jesus missing?

        2. mrtapio
          • 6 Years
          1 month, 8 days ago

          I would say 60% chance he starts!

        3. JUNITED
          • 9 Years
          1 month, 8 days ago

          What make you think that way? Who’s going to start then?

    5. mrtapio
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      I should start Williams over Livramento and Ayling this GW right?

      1. Steve The Spud
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 8 days ago

        I would start livra

        1. Gabbiadini
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 8 days ago

          so would I.
          No certainties Williams starts. complete 50/50.

    6. Sturridge Wars
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Which one??

      A) DCL
      B) Ronaldo
      C) Lukaku

      1. mrtapio
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 8 days ago

        Lukaku for me! But the hype pushing people to Ronaldo

        1. Gabbiadini
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 8 days ago

          Hype, okay mate.

          Ronaldo.

          1. mrtapio
            • 6 Years
            1 month, 8 days ago

            Lukaku better player in this moment playing for a better team where he will be the main goalscorer! Ronaldo 6-8 years past his peak. Don't get me wrong, still among worlds best strikers, and that's impressive at the age of 36!

            1. Gabbiadini
              • 4 Years
              1 month, 8 days ago

              remind me who scored more goals last season?

              1. mrtapio
                • 6 Years
                1 month, 8 days ago

                Last season in Italia, when do we get those pts?

                1. Gabbiadini
                  • 4 Years
                  1 month, 8 days ago

                  And Lukaku was not also playing "last season in Italia"

                  1. artvandelay316
                      1 month, 8 days ago

                      Someone already ran the numbers before on these guys in Serie A. Turned out that whilst Ronaldo scored better against big clubs, he was more selfish so did far less assists. Essentially they are about equal, but only one is cheaper on FPL.

                  2. mynameisq
                    • 8 Years
                    1 month, 8 days ago

                    And didn't Lukaku if it was fpl scoring, outscore Ronaldo that way anyway

                2. Harry the Hack
                  • 12 Years
                  1 month, 8 days ago

                  We don't get points for assists any more?

        2. Gazza2000
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          1 month, 8 days ago

          All three good options but Ronaldo for me.

        3. The Knights Template
          • 7 Years

          B

        4. abaalan
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 8 days ago

          Arent Lukaku and DCL both injury doubts? Or are these just "international injuries" ?

          1. Sturridge Wars
            • 6 Years
            1 month, 8 days ago

            Both trained and fit to play

      2. lockdownlad
          1 month, 8 days ago

          really torn between Jimenez+Torres or DCL+Adama, any suggestions?

          1. Gabbiadini
            • 4 Years
            1 month, 8 days ago

            Wait for Jimenez's availability news.

            1. lockdownlad
                1 month, 8 days ago

                Ah, I didn't even know that Raul was involved in that international break fiasco, thanks.

            2. Gazza2000
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 9 Years
              1 month, 8 days ago

              Would go with the safest option, DCL and Traore

              1. lockdownlad
                  1 month, 8 days ago

                  Cheers mate, thanks.

                    • 9 Years
                    1 month, 8 days ago

                    I prefer Sarr over Traore though

                    1. Gabbiadini
                      • 4 Years
                      1 month, 8 days ago

                      Yes, I asked this question earlier.

              2. Bavarian
                • 3 Years
                1 month, 8 days ago

                Jim - Torres

              3. Sturridge Wars
                • 6 Years
                1 month, 8 days ago

                DCL & Sarr

                Jiminez doesn’t look himself since the injury and Traore is a spud FPL wise

            3. bennygrimshaw
              • 3 Years
              1 month, 8 days ago

              Sanchez Foster
              TAA Shaw Coufal White Livramento
              Salah Fernandes Grealish Maddison Raphinha
              Toney Ings Scarlett

              2 FT 0.1 ITB.

              Maddison & Ings -> Antonio/DCL Sarr a good move to solve biggest problems. 0.8/1 ITB would be left.

              1. Exotica
                • 6 Years
                1 month, 8 days ago

                like to have both Antonio and DCL up front but if to choose one still be Antonio. More option else you might look is

                Antonio/ Gray
                DCL/Benarahma

                to cover both west ham and everton

              Thoughts on this WC team? Changed so many times, usually revolves around TAA, but leaving him out enables Lukaku. Open to critics!

              Guaita (Carson)
              Shaw Christensen White (Matip Livra)
              Salah Raphinha Saka Sarr (Sissoko)
              CR7 (c) Lukaku DCL

            5. Exotica
              • 6 Years
              1 month, 8 days ago

              who to cap??
              Bruno
              Salah
              Antonio
              Greenwood
