Schmelzer won a penalty and kept a clean sheet Sunday as Dortmund beat Ingolstadt 4-0.

Schmelzer was felled inside the box on the hour mark, winning a penalty which Marco Reus scored. He also formed part of a defense which conceded just two shots on target all game, the left-back looking very solid and making more tackles than anyone else. Furthermore, Schmelzer delivered three crosses and was a constant thorn in Ingolstadt's side.

Schmelzer had an assist as Dortmund easily beat Borussia Moenchengladbach 4-0 Saturday

Schmelzer delivered just one cross in the game but it was an excellent one, picking out Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to score a 21st minute header. The full-back was also strong defensively when called upon but ultimately had little work to do against an ineffective Gladback side.

Schmelzer conceded twice as Dortmund beat Werder Bremen 3-2 Saturday.

Schmelzer 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.

Schmelzer kept a clean sheet Saturday as Dortmund defeated Hertha Berlin 2-0.

Schmelzer played 71 minutes and was barely troubled in defense. Offensively he wasn't particularly effective though, the leftback only had one cross and produced one shot. He was taken off half way through the second half to give Lukasz Piszczek some game time.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Schmelzer was at fault for the opposition's goal Saturday as Dortmund tied 1-1 with Hoffenheim.

Schmelzer's was far too easily beaten by Kevin Volland who ghosted past the fullback to open the scoring on 33 minutes. Schmelzer was out-of-sorts for much of the afternoon, always looking off the pace. His offensive game was also poor although he did manage to register one shot on goal when he made a rare venture forward.
