The Scout: six overlooked Official Fantasy Bundesliga stars

You must know that feeling: you've just bought a cool new jacket, but suddenly everyone else is strutting around with the same one. No? You don't know that feeling? Good, because it's not a problem I've ever had, and not just because I don't own any cool new jackets. In fact, it's the perfect introduction to today's article, in which I'm going to introduce you to six players who are about as hard to find in Official Fantasy Bundesliga squads as cool jackets are in my wardrobe.

In this case, though, I'm finally ahead of the curve: for various reasons the following six players have been overlooked, but I can wholeheartedly recommend them. In fact, if you do snap them up, you'll be showing off in front of your friends on Saturday night just as much as you would be if you'd turned up in a cool new jacket.

Matthias Ostrzolek(Hamburger SV, 8.55M)

I do find it really strange that Ostrzolek isn't more popular. With 36 points, he's been the best point-scorer over the last two Matchdays. Although listed as a defender in the Official Fantasy Bundesliga, the 26-year-old is playing as a holding midfielder and winning seemingly every challenge that comes his way. Indeed, as a vital figure in the recent revival of HSV, Ostrzolek is a wise investment. And when you buy him, then you can all say that you rated him ever since he played five-a-side in Bochum as a child.

Attack

Stefan Kießling (Bayer 04 Leverkusen, 12.65M)

Kießling has been a top Bundesliga performer for years, and so I do find it a little strange that he's not in more Official Fantasy Bundesliga squads. Admittedly there are only three places for strikers, but even with that in mind I'd suggest that there are some arguments in favour of drafting in the 32-year-old. His late winner at Schalke on Matchday 14 has probably secured him a starting berth until the winter break and when he does play, he wins an average of 17 challenges per game.
