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.

    Planning to BB this week and FH in GW37. 1 FT and 1.2 ITB.

    A - Werner, Ramsey & Schar > Richarlison, Gordon & Laporte for -8 hit
    B - Other suggestion?

    Schmeichel
    Cancelo - James - TAA
    KDB - Son - Maddison - Mount - Ramsey
    Werner - Dennis

    Foster - Mateta - Mitchell - Schar

  2. YoungPretender

    On BB and need to ship Doherty for a hit. Who’s best up to 4.8? Thinking of just going Ake and hoping he gets at least 90 mins. Only need 4 points from him to repay the hit.

      If you aren't FH37 then I'd choose Guhei - decent game this week and double next

    2. Big_Andy_GAWA
      • 10 Years

      Aké or Clyne, IMO.

    How this for -8

    Dubravka, White & Ramsey > Schmeichel, Holgate & Gordon

    Rest of BB team

    Ramsdale xxxxxxxx

    Cancelo Rudiger Laporte Castagne xxxxxxx

    Salah Saka Kuluveski Barnes xxxxxxx

    Dennis Kane Pukki

    Any ideas would be welcomed

    1. Ginkapo FPL
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Looks pointless quite literally

    2. George James
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 29 days ago

      White May Play Sunday

  4. OptimusBlack
    • 9 Years
    1 month, 29 days ago

    Mount & Maddy >
    Mahrez & Luis for -8 pts

    1. Big_Andy_GAWA
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 29 days ago

      Offffffftttt. That could easily backfire. Mount has great fixtures to end the season, too. (C) on Mahrez?

      1. OptimusBlack
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 29 days ago

        Maybe just get Mahrez and yes C him but still thinking

        1. Big_Andy_GAWA
          • 10 Years
          1 month, 29 days ago

          My head's turned with it all, TBH. Lots of mini leagues firmly in the balance. Transfers made, but think I've played things a little too safe. But I'd have given myself mental benching headaches next GW and a lot of points on the bench as a result. So basically more days of worry and stress. So in terms of that I.think I've made the right calls...

  5. Public user

    What’s with everyone choosing diaz over Laporte ? Due a rest ?

    1. FPLord
      • 12 Years
      1 month, 29 days ago

      Not much between them! If chasing, Dias makes sense

  6. Biggsy
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 7 Years
    1 month, 29 days ago

    Broja to Dennis for a hit?

    Or double hit to change out White?

    God I hate bench boosts....

  7. FredrikH
    • 9 Years
    1 month, 29 days ago

    Would you take out Mateta for (another) hit and bring in Nketiah or just keep and hope he start after comments on Zaha maybe playing through the middle? I'm on a BB. No chips left.

    1. Gazza2000
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 29 days ago

      Think it’s worth the hit, I would do it

    2. FPLord
      • 12 Years

      Do it

      1. KUNingas

      1. manu4life99
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 12 Years
        1 month, 29 days ago

        Better option?

        Current BB36 team (1FT 0.9m itb)

        Schmeichel Foster
        Alonso James Cancelo Laporte Robbo
        Salah Saka Kulu Cout KDH
        Kane Pukki Nketiah

  10. Al Green Arrows
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 29 days ago

    I have TC and 1 FH left.

    My team looks good without any transfer, I think:

    Rams
    TAA - Cancelo - Cash
    Salah - Son - Kulu - Saka - Havertz
    Werner - Dennis

    TC Salah?
    Werner to Jesus FT?

    If I TC now I can FH on GW38 which usually is a goal fest

    1. Biggsy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 29 days ago

      Def TC this week

    2. ViperStripes

    Ramsdale (Sa)
    TAA Robertson Cancelo James (Digne)
    Salah Son Saka Gordon Kulu
    Watkins (Weghorst Broja) 0.0 1FT

    Better move with FH37?

    A. Robbo, Watkins > Laporte, Jesus (-4) --> bench Digne, Weggy, Broja
    B. Watkins > Nketiah (funds for 38 move)

    3. The Movement
        1 month, 29 days ago

        Who plays more minutes in GW36 guys?

        Laporte
        Dias

        1. Dynamic Duos
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 29 days ago

          Laporte 90
          Dias 180

      • Cheeto__Bandito
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 29 days ago

        if you could pick one this week - Mount or James?

        1. The Movement
            1 month, 29 days ago

            That’s hard, James will play less minutes I think but could haul.

          • Dynamic Duos
            • 8 Years
            1 month, 29 days ago

            Mount

        2. Bobby
          • 12 Years
          1 month, 29 days ago

          Could somebody who is very good at fpl on here, please put me out of my misery and tell me whether taking a hit to bring in son at the expense of Harry is a good idea this week?

          1. The Movement
              1 month, 29 days ago

              No, unless you really think Son is gonna do ballistic. Unfortunately if you have Kane or if you have Son, it’s really not worth switching to get the other unless you have 2FT and your team doesn’t need any other changes

            • AC/DC AFC
              • 6 Years
              1 month, 29 days ago

              Kane does well in these fixtures but Son has done better recently.

              You decide.

          2. No Kane No Gain
            • 3 Years
            1 month, 29 days ago

            Mykolenko or Tomiyasu from now until the end of the season?! Selling Schar and will want to perhaps use for the final 2 gameweeks as well.

            1. Klaren
              • 4 Years
              1 month, 29 days ago

              Mykolenko

            Would you do...

            Schmeichel
            TAA - Cancelo - Robertson - James - Alonso
            Sterling - Salah - Saka - Coutinho
            Watkins

            A) Sterling to Son
            B) Sterling and Robertson to KDB and Laporte (-4)
            C) Sterling and Watkins to KDB and Nketiah (-4)
