RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Mustafi was named to the Germany 23-man World Cup squad in place of Marco Reus, who was ruled out with an ankle injury, The Guardian reports.

Mustafi was a bit of a surprise given that he's a defender and Reus is a midfielder, although coach Joachim Low referenced the talent he has in midfield, such as Lukas Podolski, Mario Gotze, Thomas Muller, Mesut Ozil, and Toni Kroos, among others. Mustafi barely missed out on the roster the first time, so it's not a big surprise that he has now made it.
