I hope everyone heeded my advice last weekend when it came to which players would be worthy replacements for the suspended duo of Robert Lewandowski and Willi Orban.
Sebastian Langkamp(DF,Hertha Berlin, 10M)
The six stars I suggested collected a combined 63 points, while Max Kruse (14 points) and Theodor Gebre Selassie (15 points) both made it into the Official Fantasy Bundesliga Team of the Week! I’ve set the bar high for myself, but I’m optimistic that these five players won’t disappoint this weekend.
Bobby Wood(ST, Hamburg, 8.3M)
Kerem Demirbay’s name is one that has popped up regularly in my features this season and on Matchday 29 he showed why. In the eight-goal thriller between Hoffenheim and Gladbach, the 23-year-old bagged his first-ever Bundesliga brace. A lot of you will probably already have the bargain buy in your squads already. However, if you – like me – sold him when he spent a short spell on the sidelines through injury, then this is the time to bring him back into the fold.
Watch: Bobby Wood's goal against Gladbach on Matchday 24
Just like Papadopoulos, the USMNT international was a noticeable absentee in the Nordderby. The game in Bremen – despite the goal from Michael Gregoritsch – demonstrated just how important Wood is for Hamburg’s frontline. That’s why there’s no doubt that the Hawaiian native will feature from kick-off against Darmstadt. Alongside the five goals he’s scored this season, Wood wins an average of over 12 challenges a game on average. What are you waiting for? Sign him up!
So I’ve opened the door for you to be successful in Official Fantasy Bundesliga, now it’s up to you whether you go through it or not.
