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.

    Dubravka -- Gordon - Davies - Broja

    • 12 Years
    2 months, 18 hours ago

    Bottomed

    Apart from Dubravka > Schmeichel should I take a hit to also take out White and/or Ramsey

    Rest of BB team

    Ramsdale xxxxxxxx

    Cancelo Rudiger Laporte Castagne White

    Salah Saka Kuluveski Barnes Ramsey

    Dennis Kane Pukki

    Any ideas would be welcomed

    1. Killitzer
      • 12 Years
      2 months, 18 hours ago

      Ramsey seems to be playing each week so wouldn’t swap him out unless maybe Gordon?

      Could be worth shifting White though he might play one.

  7. Killitzer
    • 12 Years
    2 months, 18 hours ago

    Evening all

    2 chips left -BB and TC. Was all set on BB but unless I take some hits it’s a pretty crappy bench.

    Sa
    Matip Rudiger Cash
    Kulu Saka Maddison Salah Raphinha
    Kane Rich
    Subs- Dub Weg Schlar Kilman

    BB (will need at least one hit) or TC?

    Cheers for any replies.

      Thoughts/suggestions on this BB team?

      Ramsdale Foster
      TAA Cancelo Laporte Alonso Matip
      Salah KDB Son Gordon KDH
      Nketiah Pukki Dennis

    5. RashFraud
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 18 hours ago

      Best DEF in for White? Budget 4.9m (bench boosting)

      A. Tavares
      B. Mykolenko
      C. Emerson
      D. Anybody else?

      Got Kasper + Amartey FWIW

      1. Bob.
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 12 Years
        2 months, 18 hours ago

        Reckon Mina will start both?

        1. RashFraud
          • 5 Years
          2 months, 18 hours ago

          Think so but Keane and Holgate could start one. I’d prefer Myko for attacking returns + nailed.

      2. Dynamic Duos
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 18 hours ago

        Ake

        1. RashFraud
          • 5 Years
          2 months, 18 hours ago

          Interesting shout. Do you think he starts both?

          1. Dynamic Duos
            • 8 Years
            2 months, 18 hours ago

            I do yeah

    6. Bob.
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 12 Years
      2 months, 18 hours ago

      Team for this gw. 0.2 itb and will fh 37

      Ramsdale
      TAA Cancelo Cash Alonso White
      Salah Saka Mount Maddison
      Kane

      Dubravka Weghorst Bruno G Broja

      Thinking of White to Holgate or Weg to Pukki. Pretty boring transfers!

      1. RashFraud
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 18 hours ago

        I’d go Broja > Nketiah and bench white

        1. Bob.
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 12 Years
          2 months, 18 hours ago

          Can't. 3 arsenal. Was looking at maybe weg and white out for Mina and Nketiah but then not sure who I'd bench!

          1. RashFraud
            • 5 Years
            2 months, 18 hours ago

            Sorry didn’t see Ramsdale there. Not sure a hit is worth it with that team. Maybe Weg > Pukki/Dennis.

            1. Bob.
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 12 Years
              2 months, 18 hours ago

              Yeah that's where I'm looking now. Bruno g to Gordon could be good too

      Chasing the mini league leader, 1 FT and aiming for BB this week:

      Schmeichel Dubravka
      White TAA Cancelo Laporte Davies
      Saka Mount Salah Gordon Coutinho
      Nketiah Toney Werner

      White, Dubravka, Toney & Werner --> Alonso, Ederson, Rich and Pukki for -12?

    8. ratski
      • 11 Years
      2 months, 18 hours ago

      Which defender to get ..
      A. Zinchenko (not sure if Ake is a risk)
      B. Tavares
      c. mykolenko

      1. Dynamic Duos
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 18 hours ago

        If you have Zinchenko money get Matip or Cash

        1. ratski
          • 11 Years

          Mini league leader has cash already and I'm maxed on Liverpool.

      • 4 Years
      2 months, 18 hours ago

      Anyone know the chances of Thomas for Leicester playing 3 out of 4 games over the next two weeks? I saw he played last week in Premier but was on the bench in Europe yesterday. I was thinking of going with him over Fofana, who played a full 90 minutes in vs Roma. Mistake?

      I have .5 ITB and want to move Schar and Johnson out. (On BB 36).

      Have a better idea than Thomas and Holgate replacing them?

      I have 3 Arsenal.

      1. Indpush
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 18 hours ago

        Schar 4.3, Johnson 3.9 + ITB .5

        8.7 to spend on two defenders

    13. Milkman Bruno

      Best option- don’t mind -4 as well ahead in ML so seeing if can boost overall from present 39K

      Sterling to
      A KDB
      B Son
      C A plus Havertz to Díaz -4
      D B plus Havertz to Díaz-4
      E B plus Watkins to Richarlison-4

        Roberts to Matip, perhaps? Roberts decent for single GW player this week, though. You happy enough to keep Söyuncu? I have him and have resisted selling.

    16. Casualspotted
        2 months, 18 hours ago

        Best combo

        A: Matip, Martinelli
        B: Maddison, Nketiah

          Hello, I'm using BB this gameweek with the following team:

          Ramsdale / Allison
          Cancelo / Robbo / Laporte / Alonso / Rudi
          Salah / KDB / Maddi / Kulu / KDH
          Werner / Dennis / Nketiah

          I have 1 FT left. Would you do any transfers here? I'm doing FH in GW37, so rolling the FT is useless.

          a) Werner > Richarlison
          b) Werner > Watkins
          c) Werner > Iheanacho
          d) Werner, Kulu > Gordon, Vardy (-4)
          e) other

          Thanks in advance!

            Werner isn’t awful… looks good tbf. Maybe A and then Kulu to Havertz?

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          2 months, 18 hours ago

          Pukki to Richarlison for a hit worth it till the end, right?

          1. dunas_dog
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 6 Years
            2 months, 18 hours ago

            Yes

        • Cheeto__Bandito
          • 1 Year
          2 months, 18 hours ago

          Who scores mores?
