Marco Reus    M    Borussia Dortmund
Reus will not play in Euro 2016 qualifiers against Poland and Scotland after suffering a broken toe on his left foot Sunday against Hertha Berlin, the BBC reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Reus made only 20 league appearances last season after suffering three different ankle injuries, the first of which held him out of the World Cup. He was reportedly close to a move to Manchester United before the transfer deadline, but they apparently turned down the required £60 million cost. Reus is an electric player and excellent fantasy option when fit, but it's an issue that continues to pop up in his career.
Julian Draxler    M    VfL Wolfsburg
Draxler signed with Wolfsburg on Monday after transferring from Schalke.

Fantasy Analysis

Draxler had been linked with a number of clubs, including Arsenal and Juventus, but he'll stay in Germany for Wolfsburg, who have plenty of money to spend after selling Kevin de Bruyne to Manchester City for more than £50 million. Draxler, who is still just 21, has made numerous international appearances for Germany, is likely to see an increase in his fantasy value because of Wolfsburg's solid attackers around him.
Julian Weigl    M    Borussia Dortmund
Weigl produced an excellent passing display Sunday as Dortmund defeated Hertha Berlin 3-1.

Fantasy Analysis

Weigl hasn't made many waves since his summer arrival but is doing the simple things excellently, recording a game-high pass percentage for the second time in three games. The former 1860 Munich midfielder played the full 90 minutes and attempted more passes (94) and achieved a higher pass completion rate (94.7%) than anyone else.
Ilkay Gundogan    M    Borussia Dortmund
Gundogan played 78 minutes Sunday as Dortmund beat Hertha Berlin 3-1.

Fantasy Analysis

The midfielder helped control much of the play in the middle of the pitch and achieved a passing percentage of 92.8%. He wasn't particularly effective going forward however, taking just one shot, and was replaced by Lukasz Piszczek with the clock counting down.
Adnan Januzaj    M    Borussia Dortmund
Januzaj has joined Dortmund on a season-long loan deal, reports The Guardian.

Fantasy Analysis

Januzaj has fallen out of Manchester United coach Louis Van Gaal's plans and joins a Dortmund team already rich with midfield options. The playmaker is positive that he will make an impact at the club saying that “Borussia Dortmund is a big club and the fans are supposed to be unbelievable here...I want to achieve big things with this team.”
Chicharito    F    Bayer Leverkusen
Chicharito has left Manchester United for Bayer Leverkusen in a £12 million deal, reports Sports Illustrated.

Fantasy Analysis

The Mexican striker looked to have found a welcoming home in Manchester until he missed a penalty and had a generally poor performance in the team's Champions League victory last week. He joined Manchester United in 2010 and spent last season on loan at Real Madrid.
Kingsley Coman    M    Bayern Munich
The 19-year-old French striker has moved from Juventus to Bayern on a two-year loan with an option to buy for 28 million euros, Football Italia reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Coman has a lot of talent, but Juventus has lots of young talent loaned out to other clubs and Coman has played on sparingly for Juventus so far. This could turn out to be a great deal as Coman, like Paul Pogba, came to Juventus at no cost.
Lukasz Piszczek    D    Borussia Dortmund
Piszczek came on as a 78th minute substitute Sunday as Dortmund beat Hertha Berlin 3-1.

Fantasy Analysis

Piszczek returned to league action, having missed the 4-0 win over Ingolstadt with a hip injury. The pole replaced stand-in right-back Matthias Ginter on 78 minutes and performed well, making three interceptions and completing eight passes. He'll have his work cut out getting back in the team however, with Ginter having impressed in his absence.
Marcel Schmelzer    D    Borussia Dortmund
Schmelzer conceded his first league goal of the season as Dortmund defeated Hertha Berlin 3-1 Sunday.

Fantasy Analysis

The defender conceded against Hertha but that shouldn't take away from an accomplished overall performance. Schmelzer was sound defensively and also supported the attack with some decent crosses.
Roman Buerki    G    Borussia Dortmund
Buerki conceded once Sunday as Dortmund beat Hertha Berlin 3-1.

Fantasy Analysis

Buerki conceded his first league goal in a Dortmund shirt when Hertha's Salomon Kalou netted. He'll be disappointed that he conceded as the hosts only managed to take four shots on goal but still holds a very decent record of two clean sheets in three.
