Bundesliga Fantasy Matchday 11 Expert Picks and Team

With a new round ahead, we take a look at Bundesliga Fantasy Matchday 11 expert picks and team thoughts. @FPLGunnersaurus joins us to give his top picks for the Matchday ahead whilst also sharing his squad going into the new round with his general thoughts.

Twitter is full of the most experienced fantasy football players around. Those managers can be some of the best people to look to when trying to gain clarity when making decisions within our teams. Checking out the Bundesliga Fantasy Matchday 11 expert picks and team reveal can help hugely for the round ahead.

Note

Remember Bundesliga Fantasy managers that we have another unlimited transfers period prior to MD12 due to the international break, so you can plan your moves this week solely for the MD11 fixtures.

Top picks – Defenders – Noussair Mazraoui (12.4m / 3% TSB / FCB)

Even though Davies on the other side of defence is on sale this week I still prefer the Moroccan to the Canadian for Bayern’s home game against Heidenheim. Davies has not justified his price-tag post his MD1 32 points haul, which in itself accounts for a third of his total points to date.

In Bayern’s two demolitions at home this season Mazraoui has returned 25 points and 21 points respectively. He is still 2.1m cheaper at the moment than the on-sale Davies and offers up no less an attacking threat, which is what fantasy managers are attracted to in defenders. Many would back a big Bayern win on MD11 and managers should own at least one of their flying full-backs.

Alphonso Davies (14.5m ON-SALE / 32% TSB / FCB)

Even though I’m on the fence about owning him I would be begrudged not to mention Davies this week, especially considering managers can save 1.6m by bringing him in this matchday. A number of managers may have sold the Canadian last week so this presents a perfect opportunity to bring him back into the fold.

He exploded on MD1 with two assists and 12 points for passes to a shot in a monster 32 points Bundesliga Fantasy haul so we all know what we can do on any given occasion. I just pray I don’t regret not picking him again should I choose to forgo him!

David Raum / Benjamin Henrichs (12.3m / 36% & 26% TSB / RBL)

With both Leipzig full-backs valued at 12.3m, both on a total of 99 points and both picking up 20 points+ hauls in their last home game I simply can’t split them this week when it comes to who to pick over the other. There is no right or wrong choice here, at least until after the game is over, and either could easily haul at home to Freiburg.

Freiburg’s form on the road this season hasn’t been anything to shout about, with the Breisgau-Brasiliane having lost three in five. It should be a win for the Red Bulls and I just hope I’m on the right side of a coin flip when it comes to owning either Raum or Henrichs.

Midfielders – Kevin Stöger (9.8m / 22% TSB / BOC)

Although he was recommended last week and let anyone who brought him in down the Austrian is still a fine pick for MD11. Stöger performs better at home with three double-digit returns so far at the Vonovia Ruhrstadion. As earlier referenced it was a game to forget for him against Darmstadt in their 2-1 win as he was substituted off early for tactical reasons, and scored just three points in the fantasy game.

At home to Köln who have lost their last three on the road one would expect Stöger to return to his talismanic self. Bochum rack up the chances at home, as shown by a top five home xG of 1.88xG. Both sides are in need of points so we could see a high-scoring affair here.

Florian Wirtz (16.4m / 46% TSB / B04)

The German wonderkid is simply in sensational form at the moment. With three goals and five assists across his last four games (this being written before midweek European action) Wirtz should be part of your Leverkusen contingent, especially when Die Werkself head into the next international break with a home game against a Union Berlin side who haven’t picked up a single Bundesliga point since 26th August.

This will be the only part of the article where I mention Leverkusen assets but my advice is simple – stock up on Boniface, Hofmann, Wirtz, Frimpong and Grimaldo. Even not owning one of them could prove detrimental this matchday.

Tim Skarke (4.7m / 5% TSB / SVD)

With a lot of the premium assets having a favourable fixture on MD11 funds will be limited for those ever important bench players who can come in and save your matchday. The best budget midfielder for MD11 comes in the form of Darmstadt’s Skarke.

At 4.7m Skarke can be your back up midfielder and finds himself in good form. He racked up nine points for goal attempts in their 2-1 MD10 home defeat to Bochum and back on MD7 returned 16 points in a 2-1 away win over Augsburg in which he scored the winning goal. Darmstadt should just about be the favourites at home, despite opponents Mainz picking up a vital home win against Leipzig last time out.

Forwards – Leroy Sané (17.3m / 28% TSB / FCB)

He’s only owned by 28% of players at the moment but expect that to sky rocket ahead of the MD11 deadline. Many managers including yours truly sold Sané ahead of Der Klassiker, only for him to punish sellers with a couple of assists within 10 minutes. That’s now eight goals and four assists for the German winger in the league, and he’s already over halfway to his total points tally for last season.

Bayern are a juggernaut, especially at home, and against Heidenheim a 7-0 or 8-0 winning score line again wouldn’t come as a shock to anyone. In Bayern’s 8-0 MD9 demolition of Darmstadt Sané hauled big time with 26 points in Bundesliga Fantasy. More of the same for Sané?

Omar Marmoush (11.4m / 2% TSB / SGE)

If you’re looking for a differential in top form at the moment to challenge the likes of Kane and Boniface then Frankfurt’s Marmoush should top that bill. The Egyptian has four goals in his last two league games, which in fantasy terms has translated to successive returns of 15 points and 16 points.

Despite boasting a decent home record of three wins in five, opponents Bremen are third worst for expected goals against at home coming in with a 1.53xGA. Whilst personally I’m risk adverse and won’t bring him in, maverick managers who dare challenge ownership could find themselves with some now not-so hidden treasure here.

Phillip Tietz (8.1m / 0% TSB / FCA)

Going under the radar when it comes to in-form strikers is Augsburg’s Tietz. The summer signing from Darmstadt has scored in each of his last three starts, helping Die Fuggerstädter to a couple of wins and a draw in that time. It’s now three consecutive double-digit Bundesliga Fantasy returns for Tietz and at home to Hoffenheim on MD11 his scoring streak could well continue.

Despite a relatively good start to the season, Hoffenheim have the third worst away expected goals against record and are expected to concede about twice when on the road. At 0% ownership Tietz could tip the scales for your rank if you’re bold enough to go there.
