The most recent Bundesliga fantasy soccer news from RotoWire.
Fantasy AnalysisChoupo-Moting still managed to play the full 90 minutes despite injuring his calf in Schalke 04's opening match of the new Bundesliga campaign. He will likely not play for Cameroon during the international break but will hope to be back to full fitness for Schalke's next match against Bayern Munich on 9 Sept.
Fantasy AnalysisFahrmann played quite well despite giving up an early goal to Eintracht Frankfurt striker Alexander Meier, which he atoned for by saving Meier's penalty shot later in the match. He will be a risky fantasy play when Schalke 04 host Bayern Munich on 9 Sept after the international break.
Fantasy AnalysisNyland wasn't troubled much in goal by Hamburger SV, who only managed one shot on target. Unfortunately for the keeper, that shot was Hamburger SV striker Bobby Wood's opening goal. Nyland is a risky fantasy play at best until it can be seen whether Ingolstadt are capable of repeating their impressive prior campaign or risk falling into a relegation battle as the season progresses. Ingolstadt face Hertha Berlin on 10 Sept after the international break.
Fantasy AnalysisGross was a breakout player for Ingolstadt last season. Although he didn't find the back of the net in the opening match of the season, he will surely provide some fantasy value as he continues to be a force in the midfield, from which he frequently plays crosses and key passes to strikers Moritz Hartmann and Lukas Hinterseer.
Fantasy AnalysisHinterseer was in the right place at the right time and simply had to stick his foot out to tap in a deflected cross and equalize the score line for die Schanzer. Ingolstadt's second-leading goal scorer last year will hope to earn a consistent spot in the starting XI going forward, as he was substituted on just after the hour mark for Moritz Hartmann. Ingolstadt will face Hertha Berlin on 10 Sept after the international break.
Fantasy AnalysisSommer made a couple huge saves to help preserve all three points in Monchengladbach's Bundesliga opener. He will attempt to put in another good performance after the international break 10 September against Freiburg.
Fantasy AnalysisRaffael partnered with Andre Hahn at striker, with both of them playing an integral part of Monchengladbach's win. Last season he finished with 13 goals and 10 assists in one of the most productive season from an attacking midfielder in the Bundesliga.
Fantasy AnalysisHazard has had as good of a week as you can have as a professional soccer player. After scoring a hat trick in the midweek Champions League qualifier win, Hazard threaded a pinpoint pass to Lars Stindl to give Monchengladbach all three points in Saturday's Bundesliga opener. Thorgan tends to be overshadowed by older brother, Eden, however his offensive output as of late is hard to ignore.
Fantasy AnalysisHahn put the home side ahead just one minute after halftime. He will hope to improve upon his eight goal haul from last season and this will certainly help his confidence. Hahn will have a chance to add to his goal numbers 10 September against Freiburg.
Fantasy AnalysisStindl scored the match-winning goal in the 85th minute, six minutes after Leverkusen had equalized. Stindl is a key piece of Monchengladbach's attack and will receive starter minutes as long as he remains healthy.
