The best Fantasy Bundesliga players for Matchday 6

The Bundesliga is back for its sixth Matchday of the 2021/22 season. We are going to present you with the best Fantasy Bundesliga players for Matchday 6!

Bayern visit the other newly promoted side, Greuther Fürth, after battering VfL Bochum 7-0 last time out. There’s also a big clash between Borussia Dortmund and a hapless Borussia Mönchengladbach, while RB Leipzig visit Hertha Berlin.

For those playing the Fantasy Bundesliga game, this weekly piece selects whar we think are the best players for the forthcoming Matchday.

There’s a lack of quality budget options in the game at the moment, which means there’s no room for some big names like Leroy Sane and Filip Kostic.

GOALKEEPERS

Mark Flekken (6.6m), Philip Pentke (1.0m)

Freiburg are still unbeaten so far this season and should have enough quality to overcome an Augsburg side who’ve frustrated teams in their last two games. Mark Flekken has 19 saves and Freiburg have two clean sheets from their last five matches, whilst Augsburg have only scored twice in the league this season.

Philip Pentke is in as the 1.0m sub keeper once again.

DEFENDERS

Kevin Mbabu (11.2m), Raphael Guerreiro (14.8m), Nico Giesselman (4.2m), Alphonso Davies (14.0m), Christian Günter (11.7m)

Kevin Mbabu is the joint highest-scoring defender in the game and managed 17 points last time out despite not registering a goal, assist or clean sheet. In fact, he’s got to his position as the highest-scoring defender without a goal or an assist all season and has only collected two clean sheets. Mbabu managed six points for passes to a shot plus six points for duels won in the draw against Frankfurt, and Wolfsburg’s upcoming visit to a Hoffenheim side without a goal in their last two games is a good place to continue his great form.

Nico Giesselmann is the other highest-scoring defender in the game but costs 7.0m less than Mbabu. The Union Berlin wing-back has been a revelation so far this season, with two goals and an assist in his last four games. He has also collected a 17-point haul without a goal, assist or clean sheet and now faces a winless Arminia Bielefeld side. For his price, Giesselmann is as close to essential as it comes.

Raphael Guerreiro has three successive double-digit returns and has scored in his last two outings for Dortmund. He’s on a lot of set pieces and has great attacking threat, while Dortmund face a Gladbach side who lost 4-0 to Bayer Leverkusen and really can’t seem to get it right at either end under Adi Hütter.

Alphonso Davies disappointed owners after being replaced at half-time against Bochum but should be fresh to wreak havoc on bottom-placed Fürth on Friday evening. The Canadian has been brilliant under Julian Nagelsmann, with three double-digit hauls and two assists. Although expensive, he is perhaps the best defensive captaincy option this week.

Christian Günter is another defender with a trio of consecutive double-digit hauls and hosts an Augsburg side who’ve only scored twice in 2021/22. He’s Freiburg’s main creator and regularly picks up points for won duels.

MIDFIELDERS

Florian Wirtz (11.6m), Joshua Kimmich (16.3m), Christopher Nkunku (14.5m), Wooyeong Jeong (4.5m), Gerrit Holtmann (5.2m)

Florian Wirtz is in quite ridiculous form. He’s registered a goal and an assist in each of his last three league games – his only starts in the Bundesliga this season. Although Bayer have tough opposition in high-flying Mainz, you can’t ignore a player like Wirtz when he’s in this sort of form.

If only Leroy Sane was a midfielder. Joshua Kimmich got his first Bundesliga brace against Bochum and was all over the pitch for them, as well as on a lot of set-pieces. He has 34 points in his last two games and is the game’s highest-scoring midfielder. Fürth are rooted to the bottom of the table and have the joint-worst defence in the league too.

Leipzig face a Hertha Berlin side who have managed to beat both promoted teams over their last two games but shouldn’t be a match for Jesse Marsch’s men. Whilst Leipzig have underperformed so far this season, Christopher Nkunku has recorded 15 and 12 points in their easier games against Stuttgart and Köln, with six points for goal attempts in both games. He’s high on confidence after his Champions League hat-trick and this is a great opportunity for him to get a huge Bundesliga haul.

Wooyeong Jeong missed out for Freiburg last weekend but should return ahead of their game against Augsburg. If he starts, he’s the best option at his price point. Amongst a very poor-quality batch of budget midfielders, Jeong has the virtue of playing out-of-position in a solid side.

Gerrit Holtmann provides Bochum’s best attacking hope after Simon Zoller’s (£7.5m) ACL injury. Although a pretty poor finisher, Holtmann’s dribbling and speed help him get into great attacking positions, and he’s got a chance of a good score against a Stuttgart side without a win since the opening day of the season.

FORWARDS

Erling Haaland (17.8m), Robert Lewandowski (18.1m), Omar Marmoush (3.5m)

Do Erling Haaland and Robert Lewandowski need an explanation at this point? They both have seven Bundesliga goals in five games, lead the league in shots and play for the two strongest teams. Lewandowski disappointed owners by only scoring once against Bochum, but will have plenty of opportunities to make up for it against Fürth. Haaland is in scarily good form and is up against a Gladbach side who’ve been terrible at the back.

Omar Marmoush is currently the best budget forward option and has been great since his late move to Stuttgart. He scored against Frankfurt and has 23 points from two games. A Bochum side who’ve just lost 7-0 will provide a great opportunity for Marmoush to continue his good start for Pellegrino Matarazzo’s men.

    Ok, narrowed it down, one week or two week punt depending on whether I go for Lukaku next week or Chelsea defender, then WC8:

    1. Jimenez (sou, NEW)
    2. ASM (wat, wol)

    Cheers.

    1. aapoman
      • 7 Years

      ASM based on form. That being said I currently have Jimenez and still quite happy to have him. I'm also strongly considering the gw8 wildcard.

      1. FCSB
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 2 days ago

        Yeah I feel Jimi is about to pop, but Maxi has the form… it’s likely a 1 week punt, as maybe Lukaku in next week before WC8

        I just don’t know who to go for mate

    2. Concrete

      ASM from these 2.. Cant decide between ASM and A.Armstrong myself

      1. FCSB
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 2 days ago

        Which game do you see more goals in… Watford Newcastle or Southampton Wolves?

        1. Ranger3
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 2 days ago

          Watford never kept a clean sheet, so yes I think ASM looks a better option.. But I also saw the Spot the Differential article

            • 5 Years

            Saints do have a great run of fixtures after Chelsea next week, so could pay off

            I’m more in it for a 1 week punt before WC

      Ayling to Rudiger or Alonso?

      I know most will reply Alonso but making draft WC teams for GW8 I'm not actually that enthused about many of the options and think I might actually hold since I've had my best start ever. Rudiger seems like the safer pick in that situation.

      1. MoSalalalalalalalalah
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 2 days ago

        Don't you think it's more likely that Rudiger will be rotated?

        1. Invincibles
          • 7 Years
          1 month, 2 days ago

          No, he's their most nailed def.

    5. Messiah Hazard
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years

      Start Marcal or Livaramento. Livaramento was third on my bench last couple of weeks and kept clean sheet in both. So confused

      1. Concrete
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        If rest of the team is great and on an FT, then YES

        1. Concrete
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        I wouldn’t tbh

        Yes

    7. MoSalalalalalalalalah

      When is the fixture swing?

      1. Thomas Magnum
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 2 days ago

        For whom?

      Interesting thread: reminds you that stats are just and Aid and you need to look at them with a context: https://mobile.twitter.com/fpl_re/status/1440989208139685888

      1. Thomas Magnum
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 2 days ago

        Those stats are just a talking point. Can’t beat the ol tried and tested eye test

        1. Sgt Frank Drebin
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 2 days ago

          Both are necessary to be successfully in fpl imho. Stats won't tell you the all story, but it also helps you overcome personal biases. There are also too many games to watch them all.

    9. Tinmen
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 2 days ago

      Who is priority to ditch guys?

      Raphinia
      Torres

      1. MoSalalalalalalalalah
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 2 days ago

        Trying to figure this one out as well, and I think Raph

      2. Gabistuta
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 2 days ago

        If you have a decent bench then ditch Raph until Leeds start playing well. If no bench then you know the risks with torres

      3. Murdylicious82
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 2 days ago

        I'm still on Torres at min but I'm also getting less impressed by Leeds every week! If its confirmed Raph is out for more than one week I'll go Raph but otherwise Torres. (still not sure!)

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

          We won’t get any confirmation on Raphinia tho will we ?

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

        Torres

    10. Grand Thibauto
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 2 days ago

      Raphinha or Ferran to Sarr?

      Have white and ayling as subs

      1. Concrete
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 2 days ago

        Raphina but could save ans use bench if he doesn't play

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

        Keep Raphinha and play your subs

    11. Thomas Magnum
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 2 days ago

      Is it worth selling Ayling to someone up to 4.6 to start ahead of Livramento this week or just bench him and have 2FT’s before potential WC the following week?

      1. Concrete
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 2 days ago

        Save

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

        I'm saving - will either punt elsewhere or save. Also likely to WC next gw.

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years

        Not sure who you’d be able to bring in with a better fixture than Livramento

    12. Z

      Is Marcal going to be benched? Did i miss something...?

      1. Thomas Magnum
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 2 days ago

        Doubt it, but his potential replacement played midweek and could’ve impressed. Marcal played like trash last weekend so you never know but I’d be surprised if he’s dropped

    13. iCon
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 2 days ago

      Last Man Standing: Would you go with Everton, Leicester or West Ham for this weekend. Bookies have it Leicester just edging Everton and WHU a distant third, but my gut is to go with them.

      1. tokara
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 2 days ago

        Do u mean Leicester better odds than West Ham?

        I am thinking if i should sell Vardy for Antonio

    15. Atimis

      Best mid for next few? Have Sarr already, thinking Benrahma?

    16. MoSalalalalalalalalah
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 2 days ago

      Best 7m midfielder to get in for Raph? Currently have Benrahma, Torres, Sissokho and Salah

      1. Ruth_NZ

        Elyounoussi. You can thank me later. 😉

        1. Gabbiadini

      2. Gingerman

        Look no further than Sarr for the next 2.

      Bench Tierney or Torres?

      1. StevenW
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 2 days ago

        Tough one. I would say Tierney.

    18. StevenW
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 2 days ago

      On a WC but worried about having no United players for the next couple of games:

      Sanchez, Steele
      James, Rudiger, TAA, Livra, White
      Salah, Gray, Gallagher, Benhrama, Sissoko
      Lukaku, Vardy, Antonio.

      0.5m ITB.

      Any other ideas?

      Have value tied up in Antonio so seems silly to get rid when I will want him back.

      1. Jafalad
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years

        Ronaldo for Lukaku and then back to Lukaku next week.

        1. StevenW
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 2 days ago

          That’s what I would like to do but £0.6m short!

        You don’t need 2 Chelsea this week with City match. Reece to cheaper and then you can after Ronnie.

    19. HM2
      • 1 Year

      Play 2:

      a) James
      b) Semedo
      c) Livra

        Read an article penned by FPL General which mentioned 1030pm embargo on press conference content.

        Could someone explain what this means please? Thanks

          There are usually two (or more) sections to a press conference. The first part if 'broadcast', which is the stuff you'll see and hear at the time of the presser. The second is held back (or 'embargoed') to a later time/date, usually 10.30pm on a Thurs/Fri/Sat, which I think was traditionally for the written press in order for them to be able to produce articles in time for the new quotes being released. There are also often parts held back for the Sunday papers, too!

      Does xG factor in the number of players between the ball and the goal?

        My team was well set for that until the Leeds news. Now I may activate it

          Nope. Activated this week. Prices are only going to keep rising for key assets IMO so better to get them in now and then make gradual tweaks to squad if any good differentials appear.

        Have two transfers and am undecided. 0.1 in the bank

        Sanchez
        TAA, Cancelo, Shaw, James
        Salah, Greenwood, Jota, Torres
        Lukaku, Antonio

        Steele, Livra, Allan, Archer

        A: Burn a transfer
        B: Torres to Sarr
        C: Greenwood and Lukaku to Sarr and Ronaldo (for two/three GWs before back to Lukaku)

        Any thoughts?

              Have two transfers and 0 in the bank

              Sanchez
              TAA, Alonso, Christensen, Duffy
              Salah, Benrahma, Gray
              Lukaku, Antonio, Ronaldo

              Gunn, Sissoko, Amartey, Moder

              Ideally I don't want to lose a free transfer.
              Amartey is the real weakpoint. Manquillo as a possible replacement?
              Any advice on transfers?

                Fancy a punt on Doucoure to replace Raph.

                Already have Sarr, Salah, Benra, Gwood.

                Yay or nay?

                    He's the obvious pick but like Townsend and Doucoure as diffs. Bit of a 1 week punt as Norwich are godawful.

                    Both have hauled in previous 2 home fixtures and B.Williams is awful so now leaning towards Townsend.

                  A) Auba to Vardy with FT and start Raph (Brownhill/Williams to come on if Raph is injured)
                  B) Raph to 7m mid and start Auba
                  C) Auba & Raph - Vardy & Sara/Benny

                  Feel like Auba has a fairly good record aganist Spurs?
