Suspensions and injuries could see some of the Bundesliga’s fringe players come in from the cold this weekend, which is particularly good news for Official Fantasy Bundesliga managers looking to bring in a few forgotten names, whose values may have dropped since the start of the campaign.
Here are seven players I think could thrive back in the spotlight…
Roman Weidenfeller (Borussia Dortmund – 3.9M): Weidenfeller is also set for a good run in the first-team, after Roman Bürki broke a hand against FC Bayern München in Der Klassiker. The former Germany international has nothing to prove and is another shrewd Fantasy investment.
Thomas Kessler (1. FC Köln – 2M): Donning the gloves of the injured Timo Horn, Kessler excelled in the Rhine derby last weekend. The 30-year-old is expected to man the goal-posts at least until the winter break and, therefore, represents one of the biggest Fantasy bargains on the pre-Christmas list.
