The most recent Bundesliga fantasy soccer news from RotoWire.
Fantasy AnalysisReus made only 20 league appearances last season after suffering three different ankle injuries, the first of which held him out of the World Cup. He was reportedly close to a move to Manchester United before the transfer deadline, but they apparently turned down the required £60 million cost. Reus is an electric player and excellent fantasy option when fit, but it's an issue that continues to pop up in his career.
Fantasy AnalysisDraxler had been linked with a number of clubs, including Arsenal and Juventus, but he'll stay in Germany for Wolfsburg, who have plenty of money to spend after selling Kevin de Bruyne to Manchester City for more than £50 million. Draxler, who is still just 21, has made numerous international appearances for Germany, is likely to see an increase in his fantasy value because of Wolfsburg's solid attackers around him.
Fantasy AnalysisWeigl hasn't made many waves since his summer arrival but is doing the simple things excellently, recording a game-high pass percentage for the second time in three games. The former 1860 Munich midfielder played the full 90 minutes and attempted more passes (94) and achieved a higher pass completion rate (94.7%) than anyone else.
Fantasy AnalysisThe midfielder helped control much of the play in the middle of the pitch and achieved a passing percentage of 92.8%. He wasn't particularly effective going forward however, taking just one shot, and was replaced by Lukasz Piszczek with the clock counting down.
Fantasy AnalysisJanuzaj has fallen out of Manchester United coach Louis Van Gaal's plans and joins a Dortmund team already rich with midfield options. The playmaker is positive that he will make an impact at the club saying that “Borussia Dortmund is a big club and the fans are supposed to be unbelievable here...I want to achieve big things with this team.”
Fantasy AnalysisThe Mexican striker looked to have found a welcoming home in Manchester until he missed a penalty and had a generally poor performance in the team's Champions League victory last week. He joined Manchester United in 2010 and spent last season on loan at Real Madrid.
Fantasy AnalysisComan has a lot of talent, but Juventus has lots of young talent loaned out to other clubs and Coman has played on sparingly for Juventus so far. This could turn out to be a great deal as Coman, like Paul Pogba, came to Juventus at no cost.
Fantasy AnalysisPiszczek returned to league action, having missed the 4-0 win over Ingolstadt with a hip injury. The pole replaced stand-in right-back Matthias Ginter on 78 minutes and performed well, making three interceptions and completing eight passes. He'll have his work cut out getting back in the team however, with Ginter having impressed in his absence.
Fantasy AnalysisThe defender conceded against Hertha but that shouldn't take away from an accomplished overall performance. Schmelzer was sound defensively and also supported the attack with some decent crosses.
Fantasy AnalysisBuerki conceded his first league goal in a Dortmund shirt when Hertha's Salomon Kalou netted. He'll be disappointed that he conceded as the hosts only managed to take four shots on goal but still holds a very decent record of two clean sheets in three.
