With nine goals in Hoffenheim’s 6-3 win over Greuther Fürth, it is perhaps unsurprising that four of this week’s best XI featured in that game, while Fantasy mainstays Filip Kostic and Vincenzo Grifo also earned a spot once again.
Picking Bayern defenders hasn’t always produced results for Fantasy managers this season given the league leaders had only managed three clean sheets prior to Matchday 13 and Alphonso Davies was essentially earning his points as a winger. But this week it was Pavard who reaped the rewards for a defensive performance that pleased coach Julian Nagelsmann as Bayern edged Arminia Bielefeld 1-0.

Frankfurt picked up their first home win in the Bundesliga this season with a last-gasp victory over Union Berlin – and all thanks to another trademark Kostic delivery from the left. His assist for Evan N’Dicka only accounted for four of his 17 points though; there were another six for passes to a shot and three for goal attempts of his own. The Serbian is sixth in Fantasy for points overall, and fourth in terms of form, making him a must for any manager worth their salt.

Rutter offered the most bang for your buck on Matchday 13, his bargain 7.4M price tag offering a huge return on investment with 23 points thanks to his two goals and assist away to Fürth – even earning him the same amount as hat-trick hero Bebou. In doing so, the 19-year-old offered further evidence of his undeniable talent, taking his tally to three goals and two assists in 13 league outings this season.
