Fantasy Bundesliga

The best Fantasy Bundesliga players for Matchday 33

There is two rounds left in this Bundesliga season and Eintracht Frankfurt have just made it into the Europa League final. As always, neither Robert Lewandowski nor Erling Haaland will be considered for this team.

Goalkeepers

Manuel Riemann (6.3m), Marcel Lotka (1.4m)

Throughout the last five games, no goalkeeper has averaged more points per game than Bochum’s Manuel Riemann. Having missed a penalty and grabbed an assist across this season, the fourth-highest scoring keeper in the game can certainly be a boom-or-bust pick. Opponents Arminia Bielefeld are on the brink of relegation.

The cheapest starting keeper in the game, Marcel Lotka has been solid since coming into the Hertha Berlin starting 11. They host Mainz on Saturday, knowing a win will secure their Bundesliga safety for another season.

Defenders

Benno Schmitz (4.7m), Christian Gunter (14.1m), Angelino (15.5m), Marvin Plattenhardt (6.1m), Alphonso Davies (14.8m)

This is a massive game for Cologne, where a win would give them pole position at playing European football next season and Wolfsburg have nothing to play for. Benno Schmitz has been a solid, creative Fantasy asset all season and just bagged 12 points and an assist in the 4-1 win in Augsburg.

The highest-scoring defender for the first half of this season, Christian Günter looks to be finishing the season as he started it. He has 44 points from his last three games, having produced a goal and assist in both of his last two games. Whilst Freiburg’s famed defensive solidity from earlier in the season seems to have disappeared, this is no bad thing for Günter, who is leading by example.

Whether through sheer exhaustion or just a naturally poor run of form, Leipzig have been struggling as of late and need to beat Augsburg on Sunday or risk falling outside of the European places. Angelino has not been at his best recently but we all know what he can do on his day. He really needs to show up on Matchday 33.

A coaching change looks to have kept Hertha up and has also done wonders for Marvin Plattenhardt. The German has three assists from four starts under Felix Magath, tallying 49 points in those games. Hertha are against a Mainz side that is winless on the road since the end of October.

It’s hard to work out what’s been going on at Bayern but Alphonso Davies is still the defender with the highest average points total this season (9.4 per game). Bayern has a home meeting with 16th-placed Stuttgart on Sunday, which should give Davies a chance to get back to scoring big points.

Midfielders

Patrick Wimmer (7.0m), Christopher Nkunku (19.7m), Vincenzo Grifo (17.4m), Jonas Hofmann (16.2m), Gerrit Holtmann (6.2m)

This is a must-win game for Bielefeld. Wolfsburg-bound Patrick Wimmer has been their star performer this season but needs to produce one more magic trick to give his side hope of staying up. They visit a Bochum side fresh from a massive Revierderby win but who have nothing left to play for.

Having lost to Rangers in midweek, Leipzig need to win to continue their hopes of playing Champions League football next season. Christopher Nkunku will be carrying those hopes on his back, like he has all season.

Although his 278 points are exactly 100 less than Nkunku’s 378, Vincenzo Grifo is the second highest-scoring midfielder this season. He’s fresh from back-to-back double-digit hauls and Freiburg are two games away from Champions League football.

Despite the issues Gladbach have had, Jonas Hofmann has had an extraordinary season. The Gladbach talisman scored twice and picked up 22 points in last week’s 3-1 win over Leipzig, and he has 13 double-digit hauls from just 22 starts.

I didn’t understand Gerrit Holtmann in last season’s 2. Bundesliga and definitely don’t understand him in this season’s Bundesliga. The man who couldn’t score to save his life has become a scorer of great goals and a star performer in big games. Five goals and four assists in the league is a solid return for the Filipino and Bochum will likely get chances against a Bielefeld side who need a win to stay up.

Forwards

Anthony Modeste (11.8m), Breel Embolo (13.4m), Marco Reus (17.5m)

Anthony Modeste is back in form and might just fire Cologne into Europe. Four goals and two assists in his last four games is impressive and he has is versus the inconsistent and on-the-beach Wolfsburg.

Gladbach are as inconsistent as ever but Breel Embolo looks to be hitting form. Three goals, one assist and Gladbach visit potentially tired Europa League finalists Frankfurt on Sunday.

Fürth have been relegated and therefore, like every relegated side, they won their first game immediately afterwards. It seems to have gone unnoticed that Marco Reus has had his best season in some time and also managed to stay fit. After five assists during his last four games, Reus should pick up some points against Fürth.

      Too many options, too little info

        +1

  3. GE

    Keep Dennis or Pukki?

    1. sminkypinky
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      Pukki

    2. Ospina Colada
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      Dennis. Norwich already down.

  4. RedRo
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    2 months, 1 day ago

    Anyone else tempted to take a punt on Richarlison despite the injury? Lampard didn’t even explicitly rule him out

    1. Hazz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      Absolutely tons are

    2. Ospina Colada
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      Yeah I've already brought him in for Weghorst. Everton are desperate so reckon he will play unless serious.

      1. KUNingas
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 1 day ago

        This

      Millions

  5. Tinmen
    • 8 Years
    2 months, 1 day ago

    Folks is Ismaila Sarr an option ?

    I’m considering him over Gordon

  6. KieranKA
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    2 months, 1 day ago

    I’m mostly set with one exception: I need to decide between Watkins and Richarlison.

    Watkins:
    + plays for better team
    + no known injury issues
    + not facing FA or police investigation
    - nothing to play for
    - some rotation risk (Ings)
    - plays Liverpool in GW36

    Richarlison:
    + everything to play for
    + 100% nailed if fit
    + 4/4 good fixtures
    - plays for weaker team
    - carrying a knock
    - facing FA and police investigation

    Rest of the team:
    Schmeichel Foster
    Trent Cancelo James Royal Tavares
    Salah Son Coutinho Saka Gordon
    _____ Pukki Mateta

    1. GE
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      Richarlison IMO

      1. KieranKA
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        2 months, 1 day ago

        What’s your rationale for Richarlison? I’m quite torn as you can tell and I’ve seen people make the case for both

  7. NABIL - FPL otai
    • 9 Years
    2 months, 1 day ago

    Good to go? 1 FT, 0 itb, just FH left.

    Kasper
    TAA Robbo Cancelo James
    Salah (c) Son (vc) Saka Martinelli
    Watkins Nketiah

    (Pope Gordon Cash Weghorst)

    1. KieranKA
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      2 months, 1 day ago

      GTG. I would start Gordon ahead of Nketiah (more secure minutes) but I can see why you’d pick Nketiah

    Is there anymore double game weeks or is this it?

    1. dabber7

      37 is.

        Thanks I was wanting to use TC this week and save my FT but didn't know if that was silly

  9. dabber7

    Hey chaps would you do ...

    Dubravka/Kulu/Kane to Ederson/Mahrez/Richarlison for a -4?

    Many thanks

    1. KUNingas
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      If chasing, yes

    2. Jump in Micah
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      No

    3. KieranKA
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      2 months, 1 day ago

      No. Spurs have Burnley and Norwich coming up, Mahrez is a rotation risk

      Maybe Dúbravka and Kulusevski to Ederson and Gordon?

      1. dabber7
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year

        Thanks for the replies guys.

    On BB, no other chips left.

    Robbie and Pukki/Dennis -> Matip and Richarlison?
    Yay or nay?

    1. KUNingas
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      for free yes

      1. Jump in Micah

        Agree

      2. GE
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 1 day ago

        For free. Keep Pukki or Dennis?

        1. Jump in Micah
          • 10 Years
          2 months, 1 day ago

          Possibly Dennis

          1. GE
            • 5 Years
            2 months, 1 day ago

            Tx

    2. NABIL - FPL otai
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      Yay

  11. KUNingas
    • 6 Years
    2 months, 1 day ago

    Biggest upgrade only for GW36? Atm leaning towards B..

    A) Sa (che, MCI) > Schmeicel (EVE, NOR)
    B) Kulusevski (liv, ARS) > Matip (TOT, avl)
    C) Kulusevski (liv, ARS) > Nketiah (LEE, tot)
    D) Rudiger (WOL, lee) > Laporte (NEW, wol)

    1. Ospina Colada
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      If B and C mean a hit then A but otherwise C for me.

      1. KUNingas
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 1 day ago

        All free, with B and C Kulu on bench

        1. Ospina Colada
          • 5 Years
          2 months, 1 day ago

          I did A (but with Pickford) as I think Wolves are going to get torn apart as they're already at the beach. Kulu could do well.

          1. KUNingas
            • 6 Years
            2 months, 1 day ago

            Wanted Ederson but would require a hit which I don't want for GK. Just need to hope some save points from Sa...

    2. Gazza2000
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      A

  12. Jump in Micah

    Or

    B) Saka & Richarlison

    1. Jump in Micah
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      Should say Dennis on A

      1. dabber7
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 1 day ago

        If it's KDB and Dennis, then I'd definitely go B.

    B) AIT-N, COUT & KANE -> LAPORTE, KDB & NKETIAH (-4)

    A) has 1 extra DGWer

  17. Big Ronnie
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 8 Years
    2 months, 1 day ago

    Bench boost this week. Undecided on FH in 37 or 38 but will probably go 37. Best transfers this week? Nketiah saving over Richarlison could go towards an upgrade in 38.

    Schmeichel, Foster
    TAA, Cancelo, Laporte, Alonso, Cash
    Salah, KDB, Mount, Kulu, KDH
    Watkins, Pukki, Joao Pedro

      Don't like any of those but A if you had to choose one.

          Assuming you're not BB it makes sense to do B
