There will be a massive nine-game main slate on DraftKings centered around the eight Bundesliga matches set for Saturday. There will be a lot of players to sort through and consider, but we’ve identified some of the top targets at each position below. You can set your lineups here.

Forward

Robert Lewandowski ($11,500) is far too overpriced against Wolfsburg, so I’d opt for the Bundesliga’s second leading scorer. Timo Werner ($8,900) will be up against one of the weaker defenses in the slate and has a good chance to rebound after going scoreless against Borussia Dortmund in his last match. The Leipzig forward registered five shots against Augsburg earlier this year and should create plenty of opportunities again this time around. His 19.2 DKFP per game is only second to Lewandowski’s mark of 21.6.

Andres Silva ($8,700) has scored seven goals since the Bundesliga returned in May and is up against last place Paderborn, which has given up more goals (71) than any other team in the league. Getting one of the most productive players since the restart against a horrendous defense is ideal.

Midfielder

Frankfurt’s Filip Kostic ($10,900) is the most lethal crossing threat in the slate. He’s averaged nearly 12 crosses per game since the Bundesliga’s restart and has a ridiculous 377 on the year. He has a high floor and will almost certainly reach 20 fantasy points if he tallies an assist.

The sluggishness of Kevin Holland should keep Kai Havertz’s ($8,800) value high. He’ll be depended upon as a scorer and distributor while Leverkusen doesn’t have a consistent forward, and he’s tallied six goals and one assist since May. Although Mainz has been solid defensively, Havertz’s level of involvement still makes him promising.

Defender

Schalke has been outscored 18-5 since May, so Christian Gunter ($5,400) should have a plenty of upside as a high-volume crosser. Although he hasn’t recorded an assist in five matches, Schalke is one of the best opponents for him to snap his slump.

Daniel Brosinski ($5,600) has cracked double-digits in fantasy points in every he’s played since May, except for when he only played six minutes against Dortmund. His impact on corners and set pieces gives him a higher ceiling than most defenders.

Goalkeeper

Augsburg is only averaging a goal a game since May and has been shut out twice in the eight games it’s played since the Bundesliga resumed play after a two-month hiatus. Leipzig has given up the second fewest goals (36) in the Bundesliga this year, making Peter Gulacsi ($5,800) one of the best options at goalkeeper.

Utility

There might not be a ton of scoring in the matchup between Bayern Munich and Wolfsburg, but Joshua Kimmich ($7,700) should always have plenty of upside. His passing numbers are top notch as a midfielder or defender. He’s cracked 20 DKFP four times in his last eight games.
