Robert Lewandowski,FC Bayern München

Fantasy value: 15M

If Lewandowski wasn't already in your fantasy team, his performance against FC Carl Zeiss Jena underlined why he really should be. The Polish hitman netted a hat-trick in Bayern's 5-0 triumph, each goal demonstrating a different aspect of his game: a close range poacher's finish, a drilled effort from outside the box and an expertly executed dink over the goalkeeper.

On top of that, he also earned an assist in unselfishly teeing up Arturo Vidal to score the team's fourth. So while the 28-year-old comes with a hefty in-game price tag, he is worth every penny. Simply put, he is guaranteed to get you goals – and goals mean points!
