Marco Reus    M    Borussia Dortmund
Reus scored Borussia Dortmund's first goal in the team's 3-2 away win over FC Augsburg on Friday.

Fantasy Analysis

Not only did Reus find the back of the net, but he also played the entire 90 minutes of the victory, signalling that he's back at full fitness following the ankle issue that plagued him over the summer. Reus will be a fantasy force when healthy this season.
Xabi Alonso    M    Bayern Munich
Alonso has officially joined Bayern Munich after agreeing a deal to transfer from Real Madrid.

Fantasy Analysis

Alonso should immediately step into Bayern's strong starting XI, playing the role of an anchor behind the likes of Arjen Robben, Thomas Muller, Mario Gotze, Robert Lewandowski and even Franck Ribery (when fully fit) as well. Alonso made 158 league appearances for Real Madrid in five very successful seasons.
Xabi Alonso    M    Bayern Munich
Alonso is close to joining Bayern Munich from Real Madrid, according to The Guardian.

Fantasy Analysis

Following the departure of Toni Kroos to Real Madrid and an injury to Javi Martinez, Bayern manager Pep Guardiola has apparently been on the lookout for a replacement holding midfielder. With Real Madrid adding a number of midfield options over the summer, it looks like they won't stand in the way of a move. Either way, should the transfer go through, it would be a shocking piece of business and one that would immediately strengthen Bayern's already formidable squad.
Xabi Alonso    M    Bayern Munich
Alonso has announced his international retirement.

Fantasy Analysis

Alonso, who's being heavily linked to a shock move to Bayern Munich, made 114 appearances for Spain over his international career and scored 16 times. At 33 years old, it's not too surprising to see the central midfielder call it quits, especially after Spain's woeful showing at this summer's World Cup.
Stefan Kie▀ling    F    Bayer Leverkusen
Kie▀ling scored twice in Bayer Leverkusen's dominant 4-0 triumph over FC Copenhagen on Wednesday.

Fantasy Analysis

It was a terrific performance from Kie▀ling and the rest of Leverkusen, who booked their spot into the Champions League group stages with a convincing 7-2 win on aggregate. Kie▀ling, who also scored last weekend in Leverkusen's surprise league win at Borussia Dortmund, appears well on his way to topping his 15-goal haul from last season's Bundesliga campaign, and he'll be looking to make a sizable impact once more in Saturday's clash with Hertha BSC.
Mehdi Benatia    D    Bayern Munich
Bayern Munich have agreed on a transfer fee with AS Roma for Benatia, who will move to the German club in the coming days.

Fantasy Analysis

Roma is losing a top player, but one that it should be able to replace. On the other side, Bayern get a consider upgrade in the back after losing Javi Martinez to a torn ACL earlier this month.
Kevin Trapp    G    Eintracht Frankfurt
Trapp made seven saves during Eintracht Frankfurt's 1-0 win over SC Freiburg on Saturday.

Fantasy Analysis

Trapp was absolutely peppered with shots Saturday, but he was well up to the task.
Haris Seferovic    F    Eintracht Frankfurt
Seferovic scored in the 15th minute of Eintracht Frankfurt's 1-0 win over SC Freiburg on Saturday.

Fantasy Analysis

Seferovic joined Eintracht earlier this month after transferring from La Liga side Real Sociedad. While he struggled to score much in Spain, he may be able to find a few more opportunities in Germany.
Roberto Firmino    M    1899 Hoffenheim
Firmino recorded an assist in Hoffenheim's 2-0 win over FC Augsburg in their Bundesliga opener on Saturday.

Fantasy Analysis

Firmino was one of only four players in the Bundesliga last season to have double-digit goals and assists, which prompted talk of a potential move to Chelsea this summer. The rumors died down relatively quickly, which obviously was great news for Hoffenheim supporters.
Adam Szalai    F    1899 Hoffenheim
Szalai scored in the 33rd minute of Hoffenheim's 2-0 win over FC Augsburg in their Bundesliga opener on Saturday.

Fantasy Analysis

Szalai joined Hoffenheim this summer after transferring from Schalke. He started up front with Roberto Firmino, and the two could be a solid combination this season, making each worthy of fantasy consideration.
