In this Fantasy Bundesliga article, we will not be focusing on the most obvious picks such as Erling Haaland and Robert Lewandowski.


Instead, we will highlight players with a maximum ownership percentage of 15%, who could offer great value as differentials for Matchday 6.

Niko Gießelmann, Union Berlin (Defender, 4.2M)
Gießelmann picked up an assist and six points against Borussia Dortmund last week, taking his total tally to 54, meaning he remains the game's highest-scoring defender on par with Wolfsburg's Kevin Mbabu. With his form and low price in consideration, the wing back is hard to overlook at the moment.

Mitchel Bakker, Leverkusen (Defender, 7.5M)
Bakker has proved that he can be a great source of points when he's having a good game. The 21-year-old scored an impressive 12 points last week, taking his tally to 39 for the season so far.

Borna Sosa, Stuttgart (Defender, 11M)
Sosa started out the season with a bang, taking a whopping 28 points from Stuttgart's opener against Greuther Fürth. Both Sosa and Stuttgart have struggled following that performance, but with games against Bochum and Hoffenheim coming up before the international break, it might be a good idea to look the 23-year-old's way again.

Angelino, RB Leipzig (Defender, 13.7M)
One of the biggest Fantasy Bundesliga disappointments of the season so far, Angelino has just one point under his belt despite his expensive price tag. In general, Leipzig have had a disappointing start to the season, but they should have a good chance of bouncing back with home games against Hertha BSC and VfL Bochum on the horizon. On the plus side for Angelino, RB Leipzig coach Jesse Marsch is said to be considering reverting to a three-at-the-back system, which would give the Spaniard more offensive freedom. And although he has had a low floor this season, the past has shown that his ceiling is very high.


Wooyeong Jeong, Freiburg (Midfielder, 4.5M)
Jeong started on the bench last week, but has been tipped to come back into the starting line-up after a toothless performance from Christian Streich's team against Mainz. The 22-year-old is playing as a striker despite being a midfielder in the game and has already found the net two times this season.

Florian Kainz, FC Köln (Midfielder, 7.7M)
After missing Köln's 1-1 draw with RB Leipzig last week due to suspension, Kainz is expected to force his way back into the starting line-up for this weekend's clash with an Eintracht Frankfurt side, who are yet to win a game this season. If Kainz picks up where he left off before his red card, he's certainly a good player to have in your squad.

Dominik Szoboszlai, RB Leipzig (Midfielder, 11.2M)
With 44 points to his name, Szoboszlai has been the highest-scoring RB Leipzig asset until now, and he's even cheaper that fellow 'Die Roten Bullen' midfielders Dani Olmo and Christopher Nkunku. On the negative side, he is a slight rotation risk, with Emil Forsberg also pushing to start.

Omar Marmoush, Stuttgart (Striker, 3.5M)
The Wolfsburg loanee has been a breath of fresh air for a Stuttgart side that were desperately in need of a striker due to Sasa Kalajdzic's long-term injury, taking a total of 23 points from his first two games for the club. With a price of just 3.5 million, he offers a lot of potential at a low price.

Anthony Modeste, FC Köln (Striker, 7.3M)
Modeste has been on fire this season so far, finding the net four times in five games. With a point tally of 53 points, he has been the third-highest scoring striker, on par with Wout Weghorst and only behind Robert Lewandowski and Erling Haaland.

Leroy Sané, FC Bayern (Striker, 14.5M)
From a Fantasy perspective, it's a shame that Sané is listed as a striker and not as a midfielder, but with the form the winger has shown lately, he still deserves a shout out this week. Sané has scored 30 points in his last two games and now has a standalone fixture on Friday against bottom-placed Greuther Fürth.
