If you want to be successful in Official Fantasy Bundesliga then you need to be able to assemble a crack squad to lead you to the title. Are you spending night after night wondering about who should lead the line in your team? Well bundesliga.com has some tips with the top ten Fantasy strikers from last season.
Don't forget: This season, the Official Fantasy Bundesliga is also available for download from the App Store and Google Play!
1) Robert Lewandowski (FCB, 370 points)
You know it will always be worth buying Robert Lewandowski despite the price and narrowly missing out on last season’s Torjägerkanone because the Bayern Munich striker simply guarantees goals and points. He may be the most expensive player in Official Fantasy Bundesliga, but there is a reason for that…
2) Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (BVB, 293 points)
Goals, goals and goals – that’s what Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang brings. He notched up 31 last season to become only the fourth Borussia Dortmund player to be crowned Bundesliga top scorer. The Gabon international remains an outstanding choice for all Fantasy managers this season.
3) Sandro Wagner (TSG, 260 points)
The 29-year-old struck eleven times in 31 appearances during his first campaign with Hoffenheim. A strong player who goes above and beyond and was a key performer in TSG’s outstanding season. Julian Nagelsmann’s side finished 2016/17 in fourth place, but Wagner went one better and finished as the third-best striker in Official Fantasy Bundesliga.
4) Vedad Ibisevic (BSC, 260 points)
Only 50 players in Bundesliga history have ever reached the 100-goal mark, and one of them is Hertha Berlin’s Vedad Ibisevic. The capital club’s captain bagged 12 last season and is currently 48th on the league’s all-time scoring chart with 104 goals. A constant performer for your team.
5) Timo Werner (RBL, 249 points)
The former Stuttgart striker seemed to score at will in his debut season with promoted RB Leipzig. With 21 goals he was the highest-scoring German in the Bundesliga and was rewarded with a call-up to Joachim Löw’s Germany squad. The first-ever Leipzig player to represent Germany described his rise as “a fairy tale.” He won’t want it to end just yet…
6) Mario Gomez (WOB, 247 points)
The seasoned striker was Wolfsburg’s saviour last term with 16 goals – just under half of the Wolves’ tally of 34. Now in his second season back in the Bundesliga, the Germany forward is keen to continue his fine form and push Wolfsburg up the table. A tried-and-tested Bundesliga striker fit for any team.
7) Lars Stindl (BMG, 232 points)
The 28-year-old forward is a threat in front of goal and possesses excellent vision for a pass. He is highly regarded at Borussia Mönchengladbach as their captain, leader and a goalscorer. Could his goals and assists help boost your team to the next level?
8) Yussuf Poulsen (RBL, 231 points)
The Danish dynamo received numerous offers from Bundesliga clubs in 2013 but instead decided to join Leipzig in the third division. What a wise decision that turned out to be for the technically strong and quick forward. And there appears to be much more to come from him. Will he make the difference in your squad?
9) Marcel Sabitzer (RBL, 230 points)
Marcel Sabitzer is one of the best runners in an already athletic Leipzig squad but it was his goals that played a massive part in the promoted side’s second-place finish and Champions League qualification. He scored the quickest goal in Leipzig’s Bundesliga history after 65 seconds against Bayern on the penultimate Matchday. Definitely one to keep your eye on.
10) Emil Forsberg (RBL, 230 points)
Without doubt the brain of the Leipzig team. The Swede pulls the strings and provided more assists than any other player in the Bundesliga last season. Now that he’s finally settled into the German top flight, what can we expect of him this season?
