Neven Subotic    D    Borussia Dortmund
Subotic is poised to sign a new deal to keep him at Dortmund until 2018, ESPN reports.

Fantasy Analysis

There had been speculation that the defender could be heading to Arsenal this summer but Subotic now appears happy to commit his future to Dortmund.
Alexander Meier    F    Eintracht Frankfurt
Meier won the Bundesliga Golden Boot Award this season by scoring 19 goals, two ahead of Bayern Munich's Arjen Robben and Robert Lewandowski.

Fantasy Analysis

Meier reached 16 goals two seasons ago, but was limited to just eight last year because of injury. However, he bounced back in a big way this season, and his total could have been even higher if he hadn't missed the last six matches due to a knee injury that required surgery. Additionally, Meier is the only midfielder to lead one of the big European leagues in goal this season.
Gonzalo Rondon Castro    M    Borussia Dortmund
Castro has joined Borussia Dortmund from Bayer Leverkusen, BVB.de reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Dortmund have made 27 year-old Castro their first signing of the summer. The midfielder has played 286 Bundesliga goals for Leverkusen, netting 25 goals and producing 57 assists. Castro played 22 times this season before being ruled out for the rest of the season with a knee injury.
Sven Bender    M    Borussia Dortmund
Bender came on as an 85th minute substitute in Dortmund's 3-2 win Saturday over Werder Bremen.

Fantasy Analysis

Bender replaced Sebastian Kehl with five minutes to go and hardly had an opportunity to make an impact. He touched the ball just five times and won one tackle.
Milos Jojic    M    Borussia Dortmund
Jojic was an 81st minute substitute as Dortmund beat Werder Bremen 3-2 Saturday.

Fantasy Analysis

Jojic played in the Bundesliga for the first time since the defeat at Eintracht Frankfurt on Nov. 30. That's almost a six month absence for the Serbian who played nine times before the winter break. Against Bremen his performance was barely noteworthy, only touching the ball twice in nine minutes on the field.
Sebastian Kehl    M    Borussia Dortmund
Kehl played 85 minutes Saturday of Dortmund's 3-2 win over Werder Bremen.

Fantasy Analysis

Kehl made a game-high number of tackles in what was a strong defensive display in midfield. He did lack an impact in other areas however and did little to support Dortmund's offensive moves. Kehl had one shot before being substituted for Sven Bender on 85 minutes.
Ilkay Gundogan    M    Borussia Dortmund
Gundogan played the full 90 minutes as Dortmund defeated Werder Bremen 3-2 Saturday.

Fantasy Analysis

Gundogan produced an excellent midfield performance as Dortmund's offense was often too much for Bremen to handle. He touched the ball more than anyone, made a game-high number of 115 passes and also had one shot. The midfielder's return from injury and resurgence in form has been a key factor in Dortmund's change in fortunes post-winter.
Marcel Schmelzer    D    Borussia Dortmund
Schmelzer conceded twice as Dortmund beat Werder Bremen 3-2 Saturday.

Fantasy Analysis

Schmelzer didn't have his best game, conceding twice to avoidable goals. He made a negative contribution to a disjointed Dortmund defense and was often beaten as Bremen attacked down the right flank. The fullback did manage to produce three crosses however and provided a threat on the occasions he got forward.
Neven Subotic    D    Borussia Dortmund
Subotic conceded twice in Dortmund's 3-2 win Saturday over Werder Bremen.

Fantasy Analysis

Subotic looked strong in defense but still conceded two in a vital win over Bremen. The Serbian has had an erratic season but was reliable at the back for Dortmund in Saturda's win. He made seven clearnces while he also managed to take one shot on goal on a rare foray forward. The Dortmund defense however will have to be more solid in next weekend's DFB Cup final against Wolfsburg.
Roman Weidenfeller    G    Borussia Dortmund
Weidenfeller recovered from injury and started as Dortmund beat Werder Bremen 3-2 Saturday.

Fantasy Analysis

Weidenfeller played his first game since the win over Paderborn on Apr. 18. after recovering from an ongoing back problem. He won't be happy that he conceded two but in truth wasn't responsible for either of the goals.
