The most recent Bundesliga fantasy soccer news from RotoWire.
Fantasy AnalysisAt times, Sanches tried to do too much, but his skill is more than evident. He'll be a player to monitor when Portugal face either Wales or Belgium in the semifinals.
Fantasy AnalysisPoland made it to the quarterfinals despite Lewandowski only scoring one goal in five matches. Looking at the stat sheet, Lewandowski was underwhelming, but he did plenty as captain for the Polish in the tournament.
Fantasy AnalysisGuerreiro played the full 120 minutes of Saturday's match but came out of the game with a minor muscular problem, forcing him to miss a few days of training. He's expected to be available for selection and will be hoping to continue his strong performance at the Euros. The full back has two clean sheets in three appearances and Poland are not the most prolific team at the Euros, scoring three goals in four matches.
Fantasy AnalysisEmbolo caught the attention of the bigger clubs with his performance in last season's Europa League as he tallied two goals and an assist in seven starts and one substitution off the bench. In addition, the midfielder netted 10 scores in Super League competition. Fantasy owners can expect the teenager to take some time to adjust to the higher level of competition offered by the Bundesliga but will certainly want to watch his development.
Fantasy AnalysisBrooks' knee injury will have little impact for the US National Team now that Copa America Centenario has wrapped up. However, without further details on the severity of the injury, concerns are high for Hertha BSC, who are qualified for the Europa League this upcoming season. The defender averaged a tackle per match in the Bundesliga last season along with tallying three goals and an assist in all competitions. When healthy, the 23-year-old's speed on the wing make him an attacking threat, albeit one that hasn't materialised often in Germany.
Fantasy AnalysisThe defender was not the first-choice this past season, and played only six league matches for the squad. He is contracted through 2018, but is anxious to find more playing time with a potential move.
Fantasy AnalysisThe midfielder has already agreed to personal terms with United and is expected to undergo a medical exam with the club in the next week. He has one year remaining on his current contract with Dortmund, but now looks likely to head to the Premier League this summer.
Fantasy AnalysisMehmedi was a valuable squad rotation player for Leverkusen last season. The 25-year-old versatile midfielder was lining up all over the field, including on the bench when necessary, bringing a decent fantasy upside when trusted with a starting role. He finished the season with two goals and five assists in 28 Bundesliga appearances (14 starts) and totaled seven goals in 43 appearances across all competitions.
Fantasy AnalysisSeferovic had a decent campaign with Eintracht Frankfurt last season. The 24-year-old checked in some consistent production, though, continuous disciplinary issues kept hampering his fantasy upside. The left winger finished the season with three goals, five assists, an average of two shots per game and 10 yellow cards in 29 Bundesliga appearances (25 starts).
Fantasy AnalysisFrei had a reserve role with Mainz 05 last season and couldn't offer much fantasy upside playing primarily as a holding midfielder. The 27-year-old tallied two assists and less than one shot per game in 18 Bundesliga appearances (11 starts).
