Robert Lewandowski ($11,500)
Lewandowski has enjoyed a terrific Bundesliga season again. He will finish this campaign as the top scorer in the German league, having scored 33 goals this season. He scored in the previous weekend as well. He has proven his reputation as one of the best strikers in the world and will be keen to finish strong.
Others to consider: Erling Haaland ($9,500).
Timo Werner ($8,900)
Werner’s stunning returns and composure in front of goal earned him a massive contract in the Premier League with his soon-to-be new club, Chelsea. He has chased Lewandowski but, more importantly, has provided his team Leipzig with some depth and accuracy from an offensive standpoint with a season-aggregate of 26 goals thus far.
Filip Kostic ($10,900)
Kostic hasn’t scored a lot of goals this season, but he has been quite consistent in a contributory capacity, though. He has scored four goals and has chipped in with 11 assists this season. He has averaged 19.9 DKFP per game, second highest in the entire Bundesliga, behind only Lewandowski. Also, Eintracht Frankfurt will face Paderborn, the bottom-placed team.
Others to consider: Jadon Sancho ($9,300).
Thomas Muller ($8,200)
Muller’s role has changed drastically on this Bayern Munich team. He is now a workhorse for his manager. Still, his goal participation rate is unparalleled in the Bundesliga for a midfielder. He has scored 7 goals but has also chipped in with 20 assists. No other midfielder has come close to that level of production.
Christian Gunter ($5,400)
Gunter is averaging 12.7 DKFP per game, highest for any defender in the Bundesliga. He has done this because he is an attacking defender, often providing accurate deliveries for others. He has already scored two goals with six assists in this German season. His team is also up against a struggling Schalke 04 team.
Benjamin Pavard ($4,900)
Bayern Munich has the Bundesliga’s most efficient defense, conceding just 32 goals this season in 33 games, under a goal per game. Pavard has been a vital cog of that effectiveness at the back. He also ventures forward, usually along the right flank, to chip in offensively.
Roman Burki ($5,500)
Dortmund may not have won this season, but it had another solid campaign and will finish second. A lot of that has to do with the team’s defense. Dortmund conceded a total of 37 goals, second fewest after Bayern Munich. Another clean sheet will be a nice way to end the season.
Others to consider: Lukas Hradecky ($6,000).
