Douglas Costa    F    Bayern Munich
Costa will miss Wednesday's Champions League match versus Atletico Madrid as he continues to deal with a hamstring injury, UEFA.com reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Costa has now missed over a week because of the injury, and his next chance to return will come Saturday versus FC Koln. Franck Ribery started Bayern's previous match in Costa's stead.
Daniel Didavi    M    VfL Wolfsburg
Didavi is expected to be out for several weeks following surgery to repair a torn meniscus in his left knee.

Fantasy Analysis

Didavi should be sidelined for at least the entire month of October. The summer signing had a promising start at Wolfsburg, scoring two goals in three appearances for the club. Wolfsburg have plenty of depth in the midfield to make due without Didavi, although they have significantly slowed down in attack in his absence. Wolfsburg face Mainz 05 this Sunday.
Fin Bartels    M    Werder Bremen
Bartels returned to full squad training Tuesday after recovering from an adductor injury.

Fantasy Analysis

Bartels' return to match fitness is a huge boost for Werder Bremen given their attacking struggles and long injury list. He was a key player for the Green-Whites last season and could serve that role once again, although it will likely take a couple of matches for Bartels to get back into rhythm with the squad. Werder Bremen face Darmstadt this Saturday.
Santiago Garcia    D    Werder Bremen
Garcia returned to full squad training Tuesday after recovering from a toe injury.

Fantasy Analysis

Garcia should be available for selection this Saturday in a favorable matchup against Darmstadt. He could slot into the back line in place of Robert Bauer, who scored an own goal in last Saturday's 2-1 win against Wolfsburg, or for Lamine Sane, who missed the match with knee problems. He could also find himself playing in more of a midfield position, where he featured occasionally last season.
Lamine Sane    D    Werder Bremen
Sane training individually Tuesday after missing Saturday's 2-1 win against Wolfsburg with knee problems.

Fantasy Analysis

Sane was set to start his fifth consecutive match for Werder Bremen but was forced to withdraw from the starting XI before the start of the match due to a knee injury. His status for Saturday's match against Darmstadt is in question, and either Milos Veljkovic or the recently fit Santiago Garcia could earn the start in his place.
Jaroslav Drobny    G    Werder Bremen
Drobny made three saves and conceded one goal in Saturday's 2-1 win against Wolfsburg.

Fantasy Analysis

Drobny played well for most of the match and was unfortunate to concede a goal to one of his own defenders. Otherwise, he made a handful of nice saves and prevented Wolfsburg from finding the back of the net themselves. Drobny should have a favorable matchup this Saturday against Darmstadt, although he still doesn't warrant serious fantasy consideration.
Serge Gnabry    M    Werder Bremen
Gnabry provided an assist on five key passes and took three shots, all off target, in Saturday's 2-1 win against Wolfsburg. He also took a knock to the knee in the following Tuesday's training session.

Fantasy Analysis

Gnabry once again looked to be the top performing attacker for Werder Bremen, taking some ambitious shots and providing plenty of chances. He could be an under-the-radar fantasy option for managers seeking diversification in the midfield. Gnabry could be poised for another impressive performance if he is able to start against Darmstadt this Saturday after receiving a knock to the knee in training Tuesday.
Niklas Schmidt    M    Werder Bremen
Schmidt came on in the 75th minute and provided an assist in Saturday's 2-1 win against Wolfsburg.

Fantasy Analysis

Schmidt made his first appearance of the Bundesliga campaign Saturday, coming on for Clemens Fritz with 15 minutes left in the second half. His corner kick in stoppage time found the head of Theodor Gebre Selassie, who scored the winning goal and saved three points for the Werder Bremen. It remains to be seen whether Schmidt will see an increase in playing time for his heroics, although he doesn't warrant serious fantasy consideration at the moment anyhow. Werder Bremen face Darmstadt this Saturday.
Lennart Thy    F    Werder Bremen
Thy came on in the 72nd minute and scored a goal on two shots in Saturday's 2-1 win against Wolfsburg.

Fantasy Analysis

Thy's goal was struck with plenty of power and required some skilled maneuvering around a defender inside the box. He has made four appearances off the bench this season for Werder Bremen but could see an increased role given the squad's long injury list and desperation for attacking productivity. Werder Bremen face Darmstadt this Saturday.
Theodor Gebre Selassie    D    Werder Bremen
Selassie scored a goal on two shots, played one key pass, and won one aerial UCL in Saturday's 2-1 win against Wolfsburg. He also made a pair of interceptions and clearances.

Fantasy Analysis

Selassie was the hero for Werder Bremen, heading in a corner kick in second half stoppage time to rescue a desperately three points for Werder Bremen. The defender now has a goal and assist in five matches played and is looking like the most promising player on Werder's back line, although the Green-Whites have not offered much from a fantasy perspective thus far. He could be a sneaky option against a weak Darmstadt side this Saturday.
