The most recent Bundesliga fantasy soccer news from RotoWire.
Fantasy AnalysisTasci was brought in during the January transfer window as help for a Bayern defense that has been riddled with injuries this season, though his debut will likely be delayed due to the head injury.
Fantasy AnalysisThe Bayern defensive corps has been hit by numerous injuries this season, so while Martinez's injury isn't as serious as initially feared, it still leaves them quite light on full fit defenders.
Fantasy AnalysisBrooks has been a fairly steady player for Hertha, making 12 league appearances this season, though his fantasy value is closely tied to clean sheets, of which he has three in his last four league matches.
Fantasy AnalysisLahm finished with six key passes and two crosses, and while he continues to be an elite player, his fantasy upside continues to be fairly limited to clean sheets, which he's had in three of his last five league matches.
Fantasy AnalysisCosta has fit in just perfectly at Bayern, and his eight assists this season trail only Borussia Dortmund's Henrikh Mkhitaryan (nine).
Fantasy AnalysisLewandowski has been firing away of late, taking 20 shots, with eight on goal, in his last two games. He's scored four times over that span and now sits at 19 for the season, trailing only Borussia Dortmund's Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (20) for the Bundesliga lead.
Fantasy AnalysisChicharito's remarkable run through the Bundesliga rolls right along, as he now has 13 goals in 16 appearances this season. He's been particularly hot of late, finding the back of the net seven times in the last five matches and nine in the last seven in all competitions. He now trails only Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (20), Robert Lewandowski (19) and Thomas Muller (14) for the league goal lead.
Fantasy AnalysisDespite Dortmund sitting second in the Bundesliga, behind only Bayern Munich, Burki has just five clean sheets this season, with Saturday's shutout his first in the league since Oct. 2 against Mainz. Burki certainly gains fantasy value in leagues that give points for goalkeeper wins, but clean sheets are hard to come by.
Fantasy AnalysisAubameyang's incredible season rolls right along, as he joined Gerd Muller as the only players in league history to reach 20 goals after 19 matches. Aubameyang has found the back of the net in 10 consecutive home games, dating back to last season, and he'll look to continue his dominant play next week against Hertha Berlin.
Fantasy AnalysisThe playmaker had a fantastic first half of the season, and he picked up right where he left off as the second half began, upping his totals to 11 goals and 11 assists in 23 starts in all competitions. Mkhitaryan stands to benefit from playing alongside the now healthy duo of Marco Reus and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, leaving the door open for him to improve on his already impressive numbers. Already at or near his career-highs in nearly every offensive category, Mkhitaryan will look to keep it rolling in this weekend's meeting with Ingolstadt.
