Captain’s Picks

Alassane Plea, Mönchengladbach ($15,000)

If someone is going to score today, it’s likely the Frenchman with the 40% strike rate for the team in fourth place in the table. Plea has eight goals in 20 matches, but can also help with assists and shots as well. But you need a goal in this spot, so make the overpay for the most likely candidate.

Flex Plays

Marcus Thuram, Mönchengladbach ($8,000)

He can give you a goal potentially as he’s had six on the season in 25 Bundesliga matches, but what this forward does is give you a bit more with passing, crosses, and a bit more gruntwork to add points.

Timothy Chandler, Frankfurt ($6,800)

Go go USA! The American international plays as a defender in Frankfurt, but from that position has still averaged 9.0 fantasy points per match this season. He’s also scored four times, and brings some consistency to your lineup. Worth the price today.
