bundesliga.com highlights the most in-form players in the game, taking into account their average fantasy points haul over the last four matches.

Florian Müller
Club: Freiburg
Position: Goalkeeper
Average per game: 9.5

The 23-year-old was in the Matchday 26 Team of the Week thanks to his huge 18-point tally. Augsburg had eight shots on target during their trip to Freiburg, but Müller kept them all out to help his side to a 2-0 win. He even got nine points the previous week in a 1-0 loss to Mainz. And at just 5M, he'll also free up funds elsewhere.

Philipp Mwene
Club: Mainz
Position: Defender
Average per game: 10.25

Mainz may be down in 15th, but they have improved greatly in recent weeks and earned 14 of the last 21 points available. Listed as a defender but in reality playing as an attacking wing-back, Mwene has picked up points for clean sheets in two of his last four games, as well as for efforts on goal and passes to a shot, making the Austrian is the most in-form defender around. With upcoming fixtures against struggling sides Bielefeld, Cologne, Bertha and Bremen, can you afford not to have him at just 2.4M?

Jeremiah St. Juste
Club: Mainz
Position: Defender
Average per game: 8.75

It's rare for a centre-back to be among the biggest points winners as they're usually at the wrong end of the pitch, but St. Juste bucks that trend: eight of his 12 points on Matchday 26 were for efforts on goal. He regularly wins at least four points for duels won, while Mainz's recent wins and clean sheets have also boosted his tally. Another bargain at 4.8M, there's really no reason not to invest.

Borna Sosa
Club: VfB Stuttgart
Position: Defender
Average per game: 9.25

Even Stuttgart's 4-0 loss at Bayern on Matchday 26 could not dislodge Sosa from this list, the Croatian having earned 20, 7 and 10-point tallies prior to that game. It is no mere purple patch from the 23-year-old, who has picked up double figures in 11 of his 21 Bundesliga outings this season. Like Mwene, Sosa operates as a left wing-back in an attack-minded Stuttgart side, and he has more assists (eight) than any other defender. At just 5.8M, he's another steal.

Christopher Nkunku
Club: RB Leipzig
Position: Midfielder
Average per game: 13.25

Remember that money you just freed up with your goalkeeper and defenders? You're going to need a big chunk of it now as Nkunku isn't cheap - but he's worth every penny. The 23-year-old has six goals and four assists this season and is Leipzig's designated corner and free-kick taker. Always looking to get forward, he may have only made 13 Bundesliga starts in 2020/21, but he's still managed 11 double-digit scores. And if you're worried about Leipzig facing Bayern next, don't: Nkunku got 11 points in the 3-3 draw in the reverse fixture earlier this season.

Wataru Endo
Club: Stuttgart
Position: Midfielder
Average per game: 10.50

A holding midfielder, Endo's average is admittedly skewed somewhat by his whopping - and uncharacteristic - 28-point return on Matchday 23 in which he scored a brace and provided two assists in a 5-1 win over Schalke. Still, he is the only Stuttgart outfield player to have started every game in 2020/21, while his battling qualities mean he regularly gets points for duels won. He may not always be spectacular, but the Japanese is as reliable as they come and, at 6.8M, another bargain.

Leon Goretzka
Club: Bayern Munich
Position: Midfielder
Average per game: 15.75

Goretzka has scored two and provided three assists across his last four games, easily racking-up double-digit hauls in each of those appearances. Ostensibly a box-to-box midfielder, he invariably does more of his work going forward than in defence, chipping in with plenty of efforts on goal and passes to a shot. A guaranteed starter when fit, the 26-year-old should be a staple of any side - but is currently only in 15 per cent of all teams.

Filip Kostic
Club: Eintracht Frankfurt
Position: Midfielder
Average per game: 14.50

Bayern are the only team with more Bundesliga points than Frankfurt in 2021, and Kostic is a big reason for that. The Serbian winger struggled for form and fitness in the first half of the season, but is now more than justifying his 19.4M price tag. The 28-year-old has registered at least 20 fantasy points in three of his last eight games, achieving at least 10 in seven of those. With two goals and two assists in his last four outings, Kostic is simply unplayable at the moment, and a must-have for any fantasy manager worth their salt.

Robert Lewandowski
Club: Bayern Munich
Position: Forward
Average per game: 20.75

The most expensive player in the game, Lewandowski also has almost 100 more points than anyone else and if he isn't in your team... well, there's really no excuse. With eight goals in last four games, the Polish gunslinger has scored 35 already this term and is course to break Gerd Müller's single-season record of 40. He's had more shots (112) than any other player in 2020/21 and is THE sure-fire way to bolster your score on any given matchday.

Wout Weghorst
Club: Wolfsburg
Position: Forward
Average per game: 13.25

That the Wolves are maintaining a push for UEFA Champions League qualification is in no small part down to Weghorst. The focal point of the team's attacking endeavours, the 28-year-old has three goals and two assists in his last four outings. With a shaky Cologne side as Wolfsburg's next opponents, this is where splashing your cash could pay off big time.

Thomas Müller
Club: Bayern Munich
Position: Forward
Average per game: 12.50

The second-highest scorer in the game overall this season, it is perhaps because teammate Lewandowski casts a particularly long shadow that only 11 per cent of players have Müller in their side. The 32-year-old has more assists than anyone else in the Bundesliga so far (14), including four in his last four outings, while he's also got 10 goals. If you want points, you want Müller.
