The Bundesliga Breakdown

These are listed in order of what I believe are the top plays, including median projection, floor and upside.

Forward Picks

Andre Silva (DraftKings $8,700)

Andre Silva has the plus match up against Paderborn. He ranks top-30 in the Bundelsiga in shot volume and hits the target at an accuracy clip of 42%. The thirteenth overall ranked scorer in the Bundesliga should not garner too much ownership given the options around the price range, but he will be my top exposed GPP play.

Andre Silva 2019-2020 stats: 11 goals, 52 shots.

Kevin Volland (DraftKings $8,300)

Kevin Volland has a great match up against Mainz. He ranks eight in the Bundelsiga in shot volume and hits the target at an accuracy clip of 41%. He has missed a few games, but still sits in the top-20 in overall scoring. Volland makes a solid pairing with Kai Havertz (DraftKings $8,800).

Kevin Volland 2019-2020 stats: 9 goals, 7 assists, 76 shots.

Vincenzo Grifo (DraftKings $7,300)

Vincenzo Grifo has the plus match up against Schalke. He ranks top-40 in the Bundesliga in shot volume and hits the target at an accuracy clip of 32.6%. He doesn’t need goals to pay off this price tag as he sits twenty-seventh in the Bundesliga in cross volume and contributes with assisted shots.

Vincenzo Grifo 2019-2020 stats: 4 goals, 7 assists, 47 shots, 100 crosses.

Timo Werner (DraftKings $8,900)

Timo Werner has a plus match up against Augsburg and the price does not seem to reflect that. He ranks second overall in the Bundesliga in shot volume and hits the target at an accuracy clip of 50.4%. Werner ranks second in overall scoring and top-35 in crossing volume.

Timo Werner 2019-2020 stats: 26 goals, 119 shots, 84 crosses.

Defender Picks

Johnathan Schmid (DraftKings $4,600)

Johnathan Schmid seems under priced for what he does for Freiburg. Schmid has the upside of goal contribution of 11% of Freiburg’s overall scoring. He ranks top-30 in the Bundesliga in crossing volume and top-50 in shot volume. He hits the target at an accuracy clip of 35% and contributes with won tackles and drawn fouls.

Christian Gunter (DraftKings $5,400)

Christian Gunter 2019-2020 stats: 6 assists, 75 shots assisted, 266 crosses.

Daniel Brosinski (DraftKings $5,600)

With Aaron Martin expected out, Brosinski has increased cross colume form open play. He still controls the set pieces and his floor easily pays off the price tag. He ranks eigth in the Bundesliga in crossing volume and adds to his upside with assisted shots.

Daniel Brosinski 2019-2020 stats: 4 asissts, 54 shots assisted, 164 crosses.

Matthias Zimmermann (DraftKings $4,000)

Matthias Zimmermann’s price is low enough for pay up spots without full punting. He ranks sixteenth overall in the Bundesliga in crossing volume which he derives form open play. He adds to his upside with tackles won and interceptions.

Matthias Zimmermann 2019-2020 stats: 121 crosses, 46 tackles won, 42 interceptions.

Dedryck Boyata (DraftKings $3,000)

My favorite punt defender returns from suspension. Dedryck Boyata makes a living off interceptions and every once in a while he takes some shots. against Monchengladbach he will get plenty of opportunity to intercept passes and that would be enough to pay off the price tag.

Dedryck Boyata 2019-2020: 4 goals, 16 shots, 62 interceptions.

Other Options: Kevin Mbabu (DraftKings $4,800), Alfonso Davies (DraftKings $6,200), Ramy Bensebaini (DraftKings $5,800), Angelino (DraftKings $6,000), Ridle Baku (DraftKings $4,700), Almamy Toure (DraftKings $4,600), Bastian Oczipka (DraftKings $3,800)

Goalkeeper Picks

Alexander Schwolow (DraftKings $5,300)

Florian Kastenmeier (DraftKings $5,200)

Rafal Gikiewicz (DraftKings $4,100)
