Bundesliga Fantasy Team of the Season so far


Harry Kane scoring the goals for Bayern Munich and plundering the Fantasy points for managers might have been expected, but there are a few surprises in the Team of the Season so far…

>> Build your perfect team with UNLIMITED transfers

The second international break of the season brings with it unlimited transfers for Fantasy players. While Germany get their Julian Nagelsmann era under way against the USA, you can reset your own season with as many of the below as possible.

bundesliga.com looks at the 11 top-scoring players in a legal formation - which in this case means a 3-4-3…


Kevin Trapp
Club: Eintracht Frankfurt
Price: 11m

Eintracht Frankfurt may only be eighth in the table with six goals scored - fewer than all but Cologne and Bochum, who occupy relegation places - but they have also only conceded a league-fewest five at the other end. 

Two of Kevin Trapp's three clean sheets have come against Darmstadt and Heidenheim, so it can be argued the fixture list has been kind, but his 28 saves at an average of four per game suggest the Germany international will be a good investment on an ongoing basis.


Jeremie Frimpong
Club: Bayer Leverkusen
Price: 15.7m

Jeremie Frimpong is the first of five Bayer Leverkusen players in this team, testament to how well Die Werkself have been playing under Xabi Alonso this season, and it is little surprise to see the Dutchman included.

The only defender to crack 300 points last season, his position on the right of Bayer's 3-4-2-1 effectively make him an OOP (out of position) asset, and he has returned two goals, three assists and 91 Fantasy points this term.

Alphonso Davies
Club: Bayern Munich
Price: 16m

Another player who is only nominally a defender, Alphonso Davies does at least start on the left of a back four for Bayern Munich. Many players went for Noussair Mazraoui over the Canadian on the opening day, so Davies duly dropped a 32-pointer as Bayern beat Werder Bremen 4-0.

That was his biggest ever Fantasy haul, but he has since averaged 12 points a game, with his biggest source of points won duels, which include all challenges, such as tackles won and opponents beaten 1v1.

Álex Grimaldo
Club: Bayer Leverkusen
Price: 11.6m

Those that took a gamble on Frimpong's Leverkusen teammate Álex Grimaldo have been richly rewarded, with the Spaniard still costing 4.1m less than his fellow full-back, but having scored five points more.

The left-sider, a summer arrival from Benfica, is on set pieces for Bayer, and has already found the top corner with free-kicks against Bayern and Mainz. A must-have player, as 43 percent of managers have realised.

Jonas Hofmann
Club: Bayer Leverkusen
Price: 17.1m

Jonas Hofmann was the top points scorer among active players last season with 312, and has transferred his Borussia Mönchengladbach form to Leverkusen without issue since his summer switch to the BayArena. 

An attacking livewire who is now playing for a team firing on all cylinders, Hofmann has racked up points 32 points for his four goals and three assists, and another 24 for goal attempts and 14 for passes to a shot.

Julian Brandt
Club: Borussia Dortmund
Price: 16.6m

Borussia Dortmund got off to a stuttering start this season - early draws with Bochum and Heidenheim had some fans worried - but Julian Brandt's performances simply never dipped.

The former Leverkusen man's two goals and four assists make him Die Schwarzgelben's deadliest player, statistically, and like Hofmann his points are spread around his attacking intent - 15 for goal attempts, 16 for assists, 16 for passes to a shot.

Florian Wirtz 
Club: Bayer Leverkusen
Price: 15.7m

Florian Wirtz struggled with illness and injury last season, but he is looking back to his best in the current campaign, starting all seven of Leverkusen's games so far and returning 74 points in Fantasy. 

Wirtz played up front at times last term with Patrik Schick injured. Victor Boniface has since been signed to do that job - something he is managing with aplomb - but Wirtz hasn't needed to start right up front to tally a goal and three assists.

Chris Führich
Club: VfB Stuttgart
Price: 10.7m

No player league wide has laid on more goals than Chris Führich, meanwhile. The former Dortmund academy and reserve team player has hit the ground running this season, providing five provisions and playing his way into Nagelsmann's Germany squad.

The VfB Stuttgart winger is also the cheapest player in this selection at 10.7m, making him a budget-busting enabler as well as a top attacking asset in his own right.

Victor Boniface
Club: Bayer Leverkusen
Price: 14.1m

Fantasy may not have had an obvious formation to stick to in previous seasons, but the rule change and the emergence of Boniface and Serhou Guirassy alongside Kane has changed that.

The Nigeria striker has defied expectations following his arrival from Belgian outfit Union SG, hitting seven goals and two assists at a rate of one every 67 minutes he has played. The fifth Leverkusen player in this team, and deservedly so.

Harry Kane
Club: Bayern Munich
Price: 16.9m

Kane arrived at Bayern as Tottenham Hotspur's and England's record goalscorer, and he has wasted little time in setting about filling Robert Lewandowski's boots, a year on from the Pole joining Barcelona.

An FPL legend, Kane has bagged eight Bundesliga goals from seven games, and teed up four more. The England captain is one of only three players to have cracked a century of Fantasy points at this early stage of the season…

Serhou Guirassy
Club: VfB Stuttgart
Price: 14.5m

… and the third is the top scorer in real life and Fantasy: Stuttgart sharp-shooter Guirassy. While Führich has been laying on a league-high five goals, Guirassy has been happily hoovering them up, with 13 and counting at the time of writing.

It is already the Guinea international's best ever season in goalscoring terms and he has only played seven games! Guirassy is averaging 20 points per game so far, and it would take a brave player not to give him their attacking star to multiply his points.
