The Bundesliga is kicking off the weekend with a ton of action, as DraftKings will have a five-game slate of games on Saturday. There will be an assortment of classic contests available, and we break down some ideal picks at each position below. You can set your lineup here.

Forwards

Jadon Sancho, Borussia Dortmund ($12,500)

Sancho is one of the most dynamic scorers in the league, and Dusseldorf gave up five goals to first place Munich last month. Dortmund is no Munich, but Erling Haaland has returned to full training and could maximize Sancho’s potential as a passer.

Andre Silva, Frankfurt ($6,100)

Silva’s three-game scoring streak came to an end last week, and he didn’t take one shot. The chances of him being so limited aren’t likely though. He’s converted his shots on goal at a ridiculous rate and has a great price for someone scoring as frequently.

Midfielders

Filip Kostic, Frankfurt ($9,000)

Kostic is averaging 22.15 DKFP per game since May and has been averaging more than 14 crosses per game during that span. That’s where most of his production comes from, as he has 10 assists on the year. He’s never shy about whipping the ball in and creating chances. he has one of the highest floors you’ll find.

Christopher Trimmel, Union Berlin ($7,600)

Trimmel has sent in more crosses (61) than Kostic since the Bundesliga resumed play on May 16 and hasn’t dipped below double-digits in DKFP in eight games. Koln has given up 57 goals this year and was dominated by Augsburg in its last match. I don’t think Koln will be able to get organized after such a poor showing last week.

Defenders

Kevin Mbabu, Wolfsburg ($5,500)

Mbabu doesn’t get rack up points with accurate passes, but uses his pace to get forward and is aggressive on the wing. Doesn’t take too many shots of his own, but creates chances be sending in a healthy amount of crosses into the box.

Christian Gunter, Freiburg ($6,300)

Gunter sees a lot of the ball and averages more DKFP per game (13.2) than any other defender. He sends in a ton of crosses and has taken more shots (31) than most defenders. You’ll have to pay up to get him, but he has one of the higher ceilings in this slate.

Goalkeeper

Roman Burki, Dortmund ($5,800)

While Dusseldorf has been decent lately, it hasn’t played well against against the top teams in the league. It’s given up 15 goals against in its last five games against top five teams and has tallied one. Dortmund’s defense has conceded two goals in in last five games.

Utility

Maximillian Arnold, Wolfsburg ($8,700)

Arnold has created a steady stream of chances for Wolfsburg despite Wout Weghorst experiencing a goal drought. He’s managed to tally one goal and three assists since May, but now his top goal scorer is back on track.
