A new study from Haak: "Ancient DNA from European Early Neolithic Farmers Reveals Their Near Eastern Affinities" see
The interesting point is the Y-DNA test on 3 LBK samples from Germany: one is G2a3, the 2 others are F*.
The paper emphasizes the absence of R1b and R1a among this LBK population.

Interesting report. I think one of the great dangers of ancient DNA work is that two or three y-dna results can suddenly assume great significance simply because we don't have much else to go on.

And it's entirely possible, especially given such low numbers of results, that a trick of fate, an accidental circumstance, could have arranged it so that only certain skeletons yielded testable y-dna. Well, in fact, that is what happened in this case, isn't it? The scientists were only able to get y-dna from three individuals.

What if those three were the oddballs, and their results are fooling us into thinking something that just isn't the case?

They mention R's in the Late-Neolithic.

"The few published ancient Y chromosome results from Central Europe come from late Neolithic sites and were exclusively hg R1a [31]. While speculative, we suggest this supports the idea that R1a may have spread with late Neolithic cultures from the east"
