Bavarian Fantasy Works: Fantasy Bundesliga standings and predictions after Bayern Munich’s 3-1 win over Greuther Furth
After Bayern Munich’s pleasant 3-1 victory over Greuther Furth, it’s time to recap BFW’s âBavarian Fantasy Worksâ Bundesliga fantasy league. So without further ado, here are our top 10:
The top 10 is dominated by players who finished in the top 1000 in the world the previous season (as indicated by the bronze stars). However, at first, with an impressive 859 points, this is BFW’s own RLD.
11th in the world for the 6th day, here is his team:
Overall, the top players in the league perform at a high level with âmightymightdogteamâ (33rd) and âMIKALDOâ (47th) both in the world top 50. The gap between the top and the bottom has widened, but with the unpredictable nature of fantasy football, there is still time for lower performing teams to recover. I certainly hope to make it into the top 10 leagues in the coming weeks:
BFW tips and general thoughts
- It’s probably wise to have a 15-man crew of usable starters now. While having an ‘activator’ is acceptable for the budget, given that it’s unclear when the next generic round will take place, rampant rotation among Bundesliga managers, and inconsistent performance, it’s good to use starters for everyone on your team. This includes goalkeepers, where a two-man selection offers much more flexibility and security in those valuable goalkeeper points.
- Beware of the rotation. A fantasy manager’s nightmare, rotation kills many fantasy match days. For this reason, I wouldn’t recommend someone like Leroy Sane or Jamal Musiala – as Bayern wingers are just too inclined to rotation to be consistent fixtures for your team. It is best to choose players who are guaranteed to start not only for singles matches, but for the long haul, for example those of Joshua Kimmich and Erling Haaland.
- Be quick to spot trends. Last season was Angeino’s greatness at the start of the season. Currently, Florian Wirtz offers a masterclass for each match. And Christopher Nkuku just completed a Champions League hat trick and a total of 28 points this week. These fit players are essential for getting into your squads to avoid falling behind – and, if you get them early, for example in the case of Nkuku, it can even improve your position considerably.
