Rene Adler (Hamburger SV, 15 points) – Any time you're in goal for a team that concedes 76 percent of possession and 22 attempts on goal, it’s likely to take a Herculean effort to maintain a clean sheet. Adler came up with just that in the goalless draw with Borussia Mönchengladbach, and even saved a penalty along the way.

Anthony Modeste (1. FC Köln - 18 points) - With seven goals in seven matches, the Frenchman is the hottest striker in the league. True to form, he scored both goals in the 2-1 win against FC Ingolstadt 04. What’s more, he led the Billy Goats in tackles won with 13!

Sandro Wagner (TSG 1899 Hoffenheim - 13 points) - Played a big role in helping keep Hoffenheim unbeaten for the season in a 2-1 win at home to SC Freiburg. He scored the opener and led his team in shots (5) as well.

Ousman Manneh (SV Werder Bremen - 14 points) - Werder look to have unearthed a real treasure in this young forward from Gambia, who came to Germany as a refugee two years ago.
