Joshua Kimmich (DK: $5,600): The Must-Have for this two-game slate is the German defender for Bayern Munich, Joshua Kimmich. Bayern are the top team in the Bundesliga, and face a bottom-half side in Union Berlin. They are huge favorites and clearly the top team to target on this slate. While their attacking options are incredibly expensive, Kimmich takes the majority of set pieces for Bayern, and is the best value to get exposure to their attack. Unfortunately, we won’t know Bayern’s starting lineup at slate lock. However, there is little risk of Kimmich not starting in the late game, as he leads Bayern in minutes played this season (outside of Manuel Neuer, their goalkeeper). Kimmich averages over seven crosses per game, but we expect that to be higher in this game where they could win tons of set pieces. Kimmich can be played as a defender, or even the utility spot on this slate in order to save salary, as we feel he easily beats the midfielder and forward options in his price range. We believe Kimmich is the clear best play on this slate, and for that reason, we recommend locking him into your lineups as the sole Must-Have.
