Peter Bosz side are enjoying an excellent campaign, and actually led table up until they lost against Bayern 2-1 in the middle of December. They have since dropped to third, but remain in the hunt for the top spot.
Key to their successes this season has been Tapsoba, who has emerged as one of the most promising young centre-backs in Europe, with particular praise given with regards to his distribution from the back.
On average, he makes 101.5 passes to team-mates per game, with a completion rate of 90%.
As he is a centre-back, the majority of his passes are going into midfield, meaning his passes into the final third are down at 8.6 per game.
Second on the list is Tapsoba's Leverkusen team-mate Sven Bender, who completes 92.6 passes per match.
The current leaderboard, found below, shows players who have featured in at least 500 minutes in the league this season.
If this filter was to be taken away, Tapsoba would still lead, though Stuttgart's Marcin Kamiński would come into the top five.
With the filter in place, Manuel Akanji, Dayot Upamecano, and Aleksandar Dragovic make up the top five.
