Three players from Bayern Munich made the Official Fantasy Bundesliga Team of the Week along with two each from both Freiburg and Ingolstadt.
Alexander Schwolow (Freiburg, 10 points)
Unfancied Freiburg continue to defy expectations and the promoted club broke into the top six thanks to a 1-0 win over Mainz. Schwolow had a big say in their success, earning five points for the shut-out and a bonus point for making three key saves. It was a second clean sheet in a row for the 24-year-old and his fifth of the campaign overall.
Lukas Kübler (Freiburg, 17 points)
Freiburg’s right-back was another major reason why his team made it two wins from two. Kübler won the majority of his personal battles – earning nine points for his defensive work – and also laid on the only goal for Nils Petersen. Kübler’s first assist in the Bundesliga earned him two extra points.

Jannik Vestergaard (Borussia Mönchengladbach, 15 points)
Another player who dominated his opponents, Vestergaard was clearly pumped up for the Rhine Derby at Cologne. The sixth-ranked Fantasy Bundesliga defender put Gladbach ahead with his second goal of the season – one that was worth seven points if you had him in your team.
John Anthony Brooks (Hertha Berlin, 13 points)
Following three defeats in a row, Hertha Berlin were in a tailspin. Brooks got things back on track by snaring his second goal of the campaign to open the scoring in their 2-0 win over Augsburg. The US international has yet to score three times in a season.
Markus Suttner (Ingolstadt, 12 points)
Austria international Suttner sure is making a name for himself as a dead ball expert. In the 3-2 success against Darmstadt, the 29-year-old whipped home the decisive goal as his side made it three wins from three. It was the fourth time Suttner had scored directly from a free-kick this season – a league high.

Arjen Robben (Bayern Munich, 16 points)
Wing wizard Robben was at his devastating best as Bayern routed Dortmund in Der Klassiker. He fired off eight shots in the game – more than any other player – and one of them found the net to earn him eight points for his attacking efforts.
Aaron Hunt (Hamburg, 17 points)
Hunt was involved in four of the 12 strikes that Hamburg had on Hoffenheim’s goal. Crucially, he scored with two of them to condemn the visitors to only their third defeat of the season. It was the first time he had scored a brace for Hamburg and 12 of the points he got were for his attacking threat.
Hamburg with a huge win over Hoffenheim in the relegation battle. Aaron Hunt with two goals.

Franck Ribery (Bayern Munich, 14 points)
Ribery netted the quickest goal Bayern have scored all season when he volleyed home the opener against Dortmund after just four minutes. He also got bonus points for playing the final pass before Robben made it 3-1. Not a bad 34th birthday weekend for the Frenchman.
Guido Burgstaller (Schalke, 14 points)
A January signing for Schalke, you might consider buying Burgstaller for your team too. The Austrian had two shots against Wolfsburg and scored with both of them in a 4-1 win for the Royal Blues. Considering he now has six goals in 12 Bundesliga matches, he could be a good value fantasy purchase at only 8.5m.
Robert Lewandowski (Bayern Munich, 15 points)
The top fantasy points scorer is now the top goalscorer in the Bundesliga as well after his double against former team Dortmund brought his tally to 26 for the season. It was the Polish striker’s ninth brace of the season – no one has managed that since current Bayern CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge was still playing for the club in the 1980/81 campaign.

Dario Lezcano (Ingolstadt, 13 points)
The Paraguayan did not manage to get on the scoresheet in Ingolstadt’s win over Darmstadt. But his willingness to take players on, win possession back and to fire a game-high three shots on goal saw him rewarded with 13 points.
