Forwards

Studs

Thomas Muller ($12,200) – With Robert Lewandowski’s immaculate composure in front of goal, Thomas Muller hasn’t had to step up into an out-and-out striker. He might have to on Sunday with Lewandowski questionable. He has aggregated six goals and 16 assists in this Bundesliga season so far. He has averaged 14.8 DKFP, third highest in this slate.

Others to consider: Jhon Cordoba ($8,200)

Values

Robin Quaison ($6,800) – Quaison has enjoyed a breakout season this year. The hiatus due to the coronavirus might hurt his momentum, but he should have enough confidence to pull himself through. He scored 12 goals prior to the break, fourth highest in the Bundesliga. And he is priced at a very affordable $6,800.


Midfielders

Studs

Serge Gnabry ($10,400) – Gnabry has been an absolute delight to watch with his nimble feet and accuracy. He has racked up 17.5 DKFP per game, second highest in this slate. That has been primarily because of his offensive proficiency and goal participation rate. He has 11 goals and nine assists this season and could easily add to those tallies on Sunday.

Others to consider: Florian Kainz ($8,500)

Values

Jean-Paul Boetius ($5,700) – Mainz has a tough away game at Koln on Sunday, but with no spectators allowed home-field advantage might not be a major factor. That brings Mainz and Boetius into the game more than usual. Boetius has already scored three goals along with five assists.


Defenders

Studs

Joshua Kimmich ($5,600) – Firstly, Kimmich is more a defensive midfielder than a defender. He puts himself into attacking positions, mostly on the right flank. That gives him the ability to contribute offensively as well. He has already chipped in with four assists and has even scored a couple of goals, making him the most crucial target for defender.

Values

David Alaba ($4,000) – Bayern Munich are the Bundesliga leaders. They’ve maintained this sensational consistency over the years due to their stellar defense. They have conceded just 26 goals this season, fewest in the league. Against 12th-placed Union Berlin, another clean sheet for Bayern Munich is highly plausible. As a result, Alaba makes for a strong stacking target.


Goalkeepers

Timo Horn ($5,300) – Mainz has not scored a lot of goals this season (34 in 25 games). That gives Koln an opportunity to restart this season with the right mindset defensively. Koln hasn’t conceded too many either. With offensive lineups likely to begin a bit sluggishly after a long break, clean sheets will come into play. Horn is a solid candidate for that.

Others to consider: Manuel Neuer ($5,900)
