The most recent Bundesliga fantasy soccer news from RotoWire.
Fantasy AnalysisBuerki has kept just two clean sheets in the first seven league games despite his side not losing a game this season. The summer signing will want to improve on this form, particularly considering that he looked shaky for much of Sunday's clash. He conceded two of the opponents three shots on target and will be aiming to make amends midweek when Dortmund travel to PAOK for Europa League action.
Fantasy AnalysisThe Greek international didn't look especially convincing in defense as the Bundesliga newcomers managed to score twice from just four shots on goal. Papastathopoulos did look good in the air and won a number of crucial headers but ultimately failed to look solid at centre-back.
Fantasy AnalysisWeigl produced another all-round solid display as the 20-year old signing from the summer continues to impress. He registered a game-high number of 114 passes and completed a game-high percentage of 91.7%, while he also made his mark with a shot on goal.
Fantasy AnalysisKagawa didn't do much wrong against Darmstadt but unfortunately didn't provide the spark to clinch the win either. He passed well throughout and delivered one cross without ever setting the world alight. He was replaced in second-half injury time by striker Adrian Ramos as Dortmund pushed for a late winner.
Fantasy AnalysisSchmelzer didn't look particularly strong in his usual left-back position but attacked often to compensate for his defensive frailties. He produced two shots and delivered four crosses but unfortunately had no end product.
Fantasy AnalysisThe midfielder did everything he could to win the game for Dortmund but his side ultimately came up short. Gundogan was a constant thorn in the side of Darmstadt and also made a game-high number of passes, attempting 114 throughout the contest.
Fantasy AnalysisMkhitaryan's electric start to the season seems to have tailed off somewhat but he still remain's one of Dortmund's main attacking outlets. Apart from his shot count, the midfielder produced a game-high number of five crosses and exhibited a fine range of passing.
Fantasy AnalysisRamos barely had a chance to impress in his short time on the field, taking the place of Shinji Kagawa in Dortmund's last desperate attempt to grab a late goal. Unfortunately he touched the ball just three times and made no impact whatsoever.
Fantasy AnalysisReus still doesn't seem to have shaken off the toe injury he sustained at the beginning of the month after a disappointing display against Darmstadt. He had two shots and produced four crosses but never looked like a genuine threat and was taken off for Adnan Januzaj as a consequence in the second half.
Fantasy AnalysisJanuzaj has largely played a bit-part role since his loan move from Manchester United but made an impact Sunday when his through ball was fired in by Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang. The Belgian had earlier come on in the place of Marco Reus in the 59th minute but only managed to touch the ball 13 times in his time on the field.
