The most recent Bundesliga fantasy soccer news from RotoWire.
Fantasy AnalysisMeier reached 16 goals two seasons ago, but was limited to just eight last year because of injury. However, he bounced back in a big way this season, and his total could have been even higher if he hadn't missed the last six matches due to a knee injury that required surgery. Additionally, Meier is the only midfielder to lead one of the big European leagues in goal this season.
Fantasy AnalysisDortmund have made 27 year-old Castro their first signing of the summer. The midfielder has played 286 Bundesliga goals for Leverkusen, netting 25 goals and producing 57 assists. Castro played 22 times this season before being ruled out for the rest of the season with a knee injury.
Fantasy AnalysisBender replaced Sebastian Kehl with five minutes to go and hardly had an opportunity to make an impact. He touched the ball just five times and won one tackle.
Fantasy AnalysisJojic played in the Bundesliga for the first time since the defeat at Eintracht Frankfurt on Nov. 30. That's almost a six month absence for the Serbian who played nine times before the winter break. Against Bremen his performance was barely noteworthy, only touching the ball twice in nine minutes on the field.
Fantasy AnalysisKehl made a game-high number of tackles in what was a strong defensive display in midfield. He did lack an impact in other areas however and did little to support Dortmund's offensive moves. Kehl had one shot before being substituted for Sven Bender on 85 minutes.
Fantasy AnalysisGundogan produced an excellent midfield performance as Dortmund's offense was often too much for Bremen to handle. He touched the ball more than anyone, made a game-high number of 115 passes and also had one shot. The midfielder's return from injury and resurgence in form has been a key factor in Dortmund's change in fortunes post-winter.
Fantasy AnalysisSchmelzer didn't have his best game, conceding twice to avoidable goals. He made a negative contribution to a disjointed Dortmund defense and was often beaten as Bremen attacked down the right flank. The fullback did manage to produce three crosses however and provided a threat on the occasions he got forward.
Fantasy AnalysisSubotic looked strong in defense but still conceded two in a vital win over Bremen. The Serbian has had an erratic season but was reliable at the back for Dortmund in Saturda's win. He made seven clearnces while he also managed to take one shot on goal on a rare foray forward. The Dortmund defense however will have to be more solid in next weekend's DFB Cup final against Wolfsburg.
Fantasy AnalysisWeidenfeller played his first game since the win over Paderborn on Apr. 18. after recovering from an ongoing back problem. He won't be happy that he conceded two but in truth wasn't responsible for either of the goals.
