Fantasy tips for your set-piece takers in the Bundesliga

  • Set-piece takers are of great importance in both daily fantasy and seasonal fantasy: Daily vs Seasonal Fantasy Football Explained.
  • Free kicks and even more so penalties can often lead to a direct goal
  • Assists are almost as valuable.
  • It’s not just important to look for players who are responsible for their team’s set pieces, it is also worth taking a look at the statistics to find out which teams score goals from set-piece situations!
  • When faced with a difficult decision between two players, remember that set-piece takers always have the potential to bring extra points to your team.
  • Defenders who take set pieces are particularly valuable, as they often get more points for goals and if they pick up the clean-sheet bonus as well, they can earn gigantic scores (the defensive captain!)
  • For teams with strong set-piece takers, it’s also worth taking a look at defensive players who are known to be good in the air, these are also very valuable!
