Three players from Bayern Munich made the Official Fantasy Bundesliga Team of the Week along with two each from both Freiburg and Ingolstadt.
Alexander Schwolow (Freiburg, 10 points)
Unfancied Freiburg continue to defy expectations and the promoted club broke into the top six thanks to a 1-0 win over Mainz. Schwolow had a big say in their success, earning five points for the shut-out and a bonus point for making three key saves. It was a second clean sheet in a row for the 24-year-old and his fifth of the campaign overall.
Arjen Robben (Bayern Munich, 16 points)
Wing wizard Robben was at his devastating best as Bayern routed Dortmund in Der Klassiker. He fired off eight shots in the game – more than any other player – and one of them found the net to earn him eight points for his attacking efforts.
Hunt was involved in four of the 12 strikes that Hamburg had on Hoffenheim’s goal. Crucially, he scored with two of them to condemn the visitors to only their third defeat of the season. It was the first time he had scored a brace for Hamburg and 12 of the points he got were for his attacking threat.
Franck Ribery (Bayern Munich, 14 points)
Ribery netted the quickest goal Bayern have scored all season when he volleyed home the opener against Dortmund after just four minutes. He also got bonus points for playing the final pass before Robben made it 3-1. Not a bad 34th birthday weekend for the Frenchman.
A January signing for Schalke, you might consider buying Burgstaller for your team too. The Austrian had two shots against Wolfsburg and scored with both of them in a 4-1 win for the Royal Blues. Considering he now has six goals in 12 Bundesliga matches, he could be a good value fantasy purchase at only 8.5m.
Robert Lewandowski (Bayern Munich, 15 points)
The top fantasy points scorer is now the top goalscorer in the Bundesliga as well after his double against former team Dortmund brought his tally to 26 for the season. It was the Polish striker’s ninth brace of the season - no one has managed that since current Bayern CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge was still playing for the club in the 1980/81 campaign.
Dario Lezcano (Ingolstadt, 13 points)
The Paraguayan did not manage to get on the scoresheet in Ingolstadt’s win over Darmstadt. But his willingness to take players on, win possession back and to fire a game-high three shots on goal saw him rewarded with 13 points.
