Matheus Cunha should be a major factor Saturday against one of the weaker defenses in the Bundesliga.

DraftKings has a four-game main slate centered around Saturday’s Bundesliga matches. DraftKings will have classic contests available, and we break down some ideal picks at each position below. You can set your lineup here.

Forwards

Matheus Cunha, Hertha ($8,200)

Cunha might’ve not scored against RB Leipzig — one of the best defensive teams in the Bundesliga — on Wednesday, but applied a ton of pressure and earned a penalty kick for his team. He also drew four fouls and put one shot on goal. Augsburg has given up the fourth most goals in the league this year, so Cunha could get back to his usual numbers and reach double-digits in fantasy points on Saturday.

Robert Skov, Hoffenheim ($9,800)

Skov is averaging more than 17 DKFP per game since May 16th and has tallied one goal and one assists. Mainz is one of the worst teams defending against both forwards and midfielders, so ceiling for scoring and playmaking could be higher than usual.

Midfielders

Cristoph Baumgartner, Hoffenheim ($8,800)

Hoffenheim was in top form Wednesday, notching two goals and an assist against FC Koln. He’s tallied 10 shots since May 16th and five of those have been on target. Adrej Kramaric is still battling back from an ankle injury, which should keep Baumgartlinger more involved than usual in the offense.

Max Arnold, Wolfsburg ($9,100)

Wolfsburg was amazing defensively against Bayern Leverkusen Wednesday, but was also exceptional on offense. Arnold was a big part of his team’s production, as he tallied a goal and two assists in his side’s 4-1 victory. Frankfurt has given up 11 goals in its last three games, so Wolfsburg could continue to thrive and make the net bulge a few times if Arnold plays up to his potential.

Defenders

Bastian Oczipka, Schalke ($6,200)

Schalke’s leading assist man notched his fifth of the season on Wednesday and created a ton of opportunities by playing in nine crosses. He takes corners as well, so he has high fantasy upside.

Martin Hinteregger, Frankfurt ($4,800)

Hinteregger followed up his two-goal outing from last week by posting 10.6 fantasy points on Wednesday. He leads Frankfurt in goals and should continue to be aggressive in his pursuit of goals while being an active passer.

Goalkeeper

Marcus Schubert, Schalke ($4,700)

Although Schalke’s defense hasn’t been great as of late, Werder Bremen has still been the worst offensive team in the Bundesliga this year. Schubert could get a big break facing the team that gives up more fantasy points to goalkeepers than any other.

Utility

Filip Kostic, Frankfurt ($10,600)

Kostic’s price has been bolstered by the ridiculous 19 crosses tallied in his last match, but he’s still Frankfurt’s best distributor. He has three times more assists (9) than any other player on his team and has contributed four goals as well. Frankfurt scored two goals against Bayern Munich earlier this month and tallied three against Freiburg on Tuesday. If this offensive surge continue, Kostic will play a big part in it.
